I made this quick, one-photo editing tutorial video to demonstrate how I intentionally use harsh light for visual interest and how I handle that in post-production. This shoot took place in the Presidio of San Francisco on a Sunday afternoon around 3:30pm. Once again, if you have any questions that you'd like me to answer in a Q&A video, leave them in the comments! More photos from this series here.
Due to the overwhelming response I received after posting photos from this shoot, I thought I'd post a video showing how I edited a few favorites! One thing I'd like to note about this session: it's proof that you don't need to have jaw-dropping locations to create stunning photos. This shoot took place entirely in a generic box apartment in Dublin, California, where there happen to be some cool trees with interesting leaves and some nice window light. Work with what you've got!
I'm so amazed at the feedback I've seen on my YouTube videos and would like to start posting more often - if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments and I'll answer them in a Q&A video. Thanks for watching!
I've been getting a lot of questions about my editing style and thought I would share a bit about my post-production process. I strongly believe in building up the photography community through sharing knowledge and taking inspiration from one another as we craft our own styles! I use one preset from Pack 6 of VSCO Film, which you'll hear me talk about in the video. Check out my first YouTube editing video of Eden and the trains and be sure to like and subscribe!
