First Time For Everything — Even Editing

“After” Image #1


I raised the exposure, recovery, fill light ,contrast, and temp.  Then I lowered the clarity and saturation and did a little blemish removal.

This was my veryfirst attempt at editing so I had to play with it a lot to get it to where I wanted it.  First I applied the preset “direct positive” and then did a custom white balance using the white in his shirt.  I smoothed out his chapped lips using the “heal brush” and then adjusted all the settings until I came up with the final edit.

“After” Image #3

For this picture I cropped and angled it, then added the “Aged Photo” preset.  Then I lowered the Clarity and Recovery and raised the fill light, blacks, and contrast.  To finish it I tweaked the rest of the settings a tiny bit until I liked how it looked.
