I always like seeing “before and after” pictures so I thought I should make a post about it. The aim is to show that sometimes a small change can make a big impact. However, it is also important to see that the “before” picture should still be good. All my changes are done in lightroom and usually only takes 5-20 seconds. I rarely spend time in photoshop – lightroom does most of the heavy work. Usually I work with photoshop when it comes to portrait pictures when you wanna take away some spots, smoothen things out, sharpen an eye or so.
The advantage of shooting RAW is that you can do some changes to the picture without loosing quality. People who shoot JPEG and then do changes in lightroom will loose more quality. This is why RAW images can be up to 25 megabyte.
Anyhow, here are some before and after images….
