Here are some before after shots worked in lightroom. I shot all of these this weekend while doing an excursion to Treasure Island here in the SF Bay Area. I straighted all of the images and cropped them to 4x5/8x10 in LR to give them a more flim-like feeling. I tend to do that with a lof of my pics. Not sure if it helps.
Bay Bridge (Before)
Bay Bridge (After) - I shot this in the afternoon and wanted to make sure the viewer got a sense of the warm glow of the sun that was hitting the bridge.
Me and Boombox (Before)
Me and Boombox (After) - The original image just felt so cold to met. I warmed it up and made sure hte colors popped.
Dellea (After 1) - I wanted to try and interesting crop on Dellea and her camera.
Dellea (After 2) - I tried a version where I used a VSCO preset as a starting point. I like how the blacks are pushed really hard and the image is less detailed giving it a more graphic feeling.
Would love your feedback!!
