Welcome to the first video in my new Edit My Photo series!
In my RealShoots Complete Course Facebook group, we’ve just started running monthly editing challenges. How it works is:
I love these challenges (and so do my RealShooters!) because it’s so interesting to see how different people’s individual styles and editing techniques can completely transform an image in so many different ways - you’ll see a few examples of up to 20 different edits on one image, included in this video.
For me - editing the winner’s image gives me the opportunity to demonstrate new pet photography editing techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop.
Cassie was a recent winner and when she submitted her image, I loved how my edit turned out and thought it would be a good opportunity to create an in-depth tutorial to share. In this video, I demonstrate a technique I use to edit different parts of the image in different ways, but still fully utilising all the detail and colour from the RAW file in Lightroom. Using this technique, I created different edits for the background, the dog and the grass, then seamlessly combined them to end up with a colourful, vibrant and fun finished image.
Join me in the tutorial and learn some new pet photography editing techniques for yourself!
