I took these pictures seconds apart with almost identical settings--the only difference was that the lovely one was taken just using the window light, and the yucky one was taken with all the lights on. I didn't do any processing or tweaking--that's what they looked like straight out of the camera. Then I tried to save the yucky one and tweaked a few things on the nice one and got this:
I still don't love the first one, but it's better. I like the second one even more. Thank you, Lightroom. The moral of the story is: try to take good pictures the first time instead of hoping you can save them in Lightroom or Photoshop. And here's a few more I took with all the lights off in the room that I loved.
Well hello, handsome snowman pajama-ed baby.
I'd also like to give a shout out to the 50mm lens and it's slightly cheaper but totally functional brother.It will change your life in a lovely, blurry backgrounded way.
And now two pictures of Finley that were taken in the kind of yucky light, but redeemed in Lightroom.
So, that's all I have to say about that. I think I'll be turning out the lights a little more often and shooting in natural light so I'll like the way they turn out more. And with that, I'm off to start my weekend the right way. At Chick-fil-a.
