Before & after editing collages are some of my favorite content produced by photographers. When I first started getting interested in photography, I always thought that photographers were able to capture what I saw on blogs and Instagram simply out of the camera. BOY, I was wrong. Even for images that look unedited and natural, you can use Lightroom, VSCO, A Color Story, etc. to give your images a little oomph. I’ve played around a lot in Lightroom trying to find what my style was and I finally figured it out early last fall.

Today’s blog post is all about my editing workflow from start to finish without presets. Now, of course, I can have up to 4-5 portrait sessions and blogging photo sets at any given moment. It makes editing and my workflow so much faster when I can just click on one of my many presets. As a special treat, I created 4 natural and versatile presets that you can upload into Lightroom: two in color and two in black and white!

Let’s get into it! If anything is unclear throughout this post, please let me know! I’ll be doing a whole video on creating Instagram content for your blog and social media on Youtube very soon. So, be on the lookout for that too!
