Since we're all distancing us from each other, I take the time to do some editing!
So I thought I'll share a quick little post about my workflow, this is from my latest shoot with @orig8kami !
Won't go into details here, but the general order of things.
1. I start in Lightroom by rating the images in the shoot 1-4 stars, 5 stars is reserved for finished images.
When I choose what to edit I go for the 3 to 4 stars images.
2. I do some general adjustments in Lightroom, usually I want lower contrast at this point. Then I enhance shadows and highlights manually in Photoshop.
3 & 4. Using 2 screens is a real lifesaver, since you can see the full image on one and have the other zoomed in.
Here I'm doing some cleanup of things that doesn't belong in the image.
5. When I edit skin I use frequency separation, this means keeping details in the skin while still giving a smoothing effect.
6. This is the end result of this shot and the image is also in her own personal Dropbox folder. :) #NordicCosplay #edits #edit #lightroom #cosplay #cosplayhotographer #violetevergarden #anime #animecosplay #violet #violetcosplay #workflow #photoshoot #cosplaygirl #photoshop
