Into the Woods | Before and After

Landscape, fine art photography of a path leading into magical woods

‘Before’ is used rather liberally, as it’s not a true out of camera (OOC) screen grab.

When images are pulled off the camera, they’re sifted through and the initial edits are immediately made, to get a good ‘base’ to work from later.  This initial edit usually includes contrast, white balance, and black-point editing, and is then saved into a queue of all the other images that need to be edited for a second round before sharing.

This first image is the photo after the first editing pass.

The second shows the final version after more extensive editing, including multiple layers, further adjustments regarding contrast, color, lighting, and vignetting.

If you’d be interested in a more in-depth look into the process, please let me know!  Keeping a record of actual steps taken as well as showing actual OOC shots are definitely an area of interest, so expect to see some in the future!

If you have any ideas or suggestions of things you’d like to see, please leave a comment!

    1. Thank you so much for your reply!
      Hopefully detail around the path is easily visible, as the edges were meant to be much darker. Photos are edited on a backlit laptop screen, not the best idea, so it’s definitely possible it came out much darker than intended..

      1. That would make perfect sense! It can be a bit of a gamble when posting relatively dark images,as you never know what they’ll look like on other screens..
