A Look Behind The Scenes

I’ve always loved getting a look behind-the-scenes at work by other photographers and artists. To me, editing makes up half of the style and thought behind a photo.

Sometimes my boyfriend begrudgingly takes shots for me and I have to correct for composition, lighting, etc. I’m by no means a master editor and am always practicing to improve more, but today I thought I’d share some of my favorite before and afters to give you guys a peek into some of the less polished photos!

Do you guys like behind-the-scenes content? Stay tuned for more down the road… maybe editing videos or tutorials, too!

    Love seeing this and understanding your opinion cause sometimes I feel guilty for my editing- nice to know that someone of your expertise does it! Question: how did you erase some of the background? Like the one of baby cheebs, or Kokoro catching air? Thanks again- absolutely love your work!

      To erase the background I usually use a combination of the clone and heal tools, but it depends on how complicated the background is! Things that are textured like sand or grass are usually easier as long as there isn’t a huge difference in your depth of field.
