Before & After - Rachel

I love this before & after thing. I really enjoy when other photographers show them, and I'm glad I finally started. My next step is to actually go through the steps and tell you how I got the result that I did, but in the mean time, I'm using some older edits to get started with, and well, I just don't remember exactly.

This week I'm showing off something a little more dramatic than last week, and it's likely I'll continue to show you things on both sides of the spectrum. Sometimes I shoot a photo with a specific edit in mind, and this was one of those times. Yes, if you take a look at the whole session, you'll see some "normal" edits also... but these faded looks were a lot more fun given the surroundings we were shooting in.

Here, you've got a little bit of cropping, desaturating, and sharpening.
