Hi! Thank you! Yes I do, DON’T think that contrast is your friend, I mean as much as I do have a habit of turning that sucker up, don’t make your photos too contasty, it makes your photos look like it was taken with a cool pix camera from the 90s. Instead, play with the tone curve, those are way more useful than you think. DO play around and use your preset, even make your own preset! You’ll grow to love them, especially when you find the perfect editing style that you could use for everykine of photography. DO use the tool bars, especially the mask, it works wonders on skin tone, etc. The brush is amazing and gets rids of flaws and blemishes. Lastly DON’T upload/import all your photos, before importing select the pictures you will be editing and delete or uncheck those you aren’t planning to edit or is not a flattering picture. If you decide to import all like how I do, you’ll have a whole day dedicated to deleting 1000+ photos off your lightroom individually, and it sucks because it takes so much room. Well that’s all the advice I have other than exporting it with full quality and shoot in RAW, it’s better than JPEG.
AH! I’ve been asked this before yes! and the answer will always remain the same, Casey Liu. From the itty bitty dream I had with my oh so not amazing knowledge of photography, Casey helped me A LOT. She is definitely the reason why I am who I am in the photography world today. She helped open up doors to all the possibility in this industry and though then we were both sort of younger and inexperienced, she was an amazing, underline that, great photographer with her own personal style that you couldn’t find out here in Hawaii. What really synced in my head was her advice to ‘find your own style’ and well, I hope I did.
