Trying to save some of the photos from when I played with my friends DSLR... Is the editing helping or am I doing more damage? I have alot of pictures I like but the lighting is bad.

Quoting Mrs.Dani:" Which do you like better color or B&W? "


I like the color in the top and BW in the bottom

I like the first edit you did, but not the second.

The first edit is pretty good. Maybe a little dark but I'm on my phone so it's hard to tell for sure. The second one the edit made it too red. What are you using to edit?

Adobe photoshop cs6



Playing with exposure, levels and curves

Monday I'm doing my first "real" newborn shoot. I take pictures of newborns at the hospital all the time but it's for a company so I'm VERY limited editing wise.



What are your best editing tips (or any tutorials) for newborns (or any portraits really). I have photoshop cs6 and LR 4

Try not going so dark on the second one and taking out some of the red. That should help. Also black and white can be a lot more forgiving than color. If I'm having a lot of trouble with getting the color balance right in a photo I always try black and white too.

Well my #1 thing I can suggest is nail your exposure and shoot as wide as you can while maintaining focus. These will both help minimize skin issues and make your editing easier.

My photography instructor always laid down the rule that unless color does something great for the image it should be in b&w. So i always ask myself what the color is doing for the pic.

I tried a couple in B&W hoping to save them but everytime I go B&W its like instant noise and the whole picture is grainy

Hey ladies.



I just have a quick question. I recently bought a camera and am learning as I go.



What am I doing to get this orange tint? Is it just the lighting or are my settings off?
