Before & After Tuesday

Editing is just as key as taking a good picture to begin with. And I didn't really know that up until a few years ago. I worked really hard to get it just right in camera (good practice!) and then that is how I left it.

Once I discovered the beautiful world of editing tools, I found a creative side to myself I didn't know I had. It's art.

For this photo, I pumped up the contrast, and highlights.
Then I added a matte finish to the background...a few times. (I painted this on)
I added some purples in and increased the saturation on those.
That is pretty much it.

When I edit a photo, I am really indecisive and play with it a lot before I find what I am looking for.
So much fun.
