I’ve been too comfortable with my editing recently. I was well aware of this fact, but I just like this preset I made TOO MUCH to try anything different. Well a few days ago I reaaaalllly had to step my Lightroom game up after a show where most of my shots looked like this:

this ish is WHACK

After working on ONE PHOTO for like 3 HOURS and still hating it, I messaged my talented photographer friend and she gave me the tip that would literally, save my life.

I turned down the red primary saturation and everything changed. All my pictures were less pink. Still pink, but hey, it was a start. From there I played with the other primary settings, the temperature, split tones, and somehow ended up with stuff I’m crazy proud of.

Enjoy….

I also made a new black and white preset (or 2) that I probably dig a little too much. But I’m super picky when it comes to black and white so if I like it I’m probably gonna use it on everything.
