The Secret On How I Edit My Photos

Gear, location, models, composition and lighting are obviously very important parts of the process of taking great photos. But the most important is in the editing. What you make of the photo. How to highlight the moment that you have captured and give it your specific look as a photographer.

I edit all my photos in Adobe Lightroom Classic. It’s a powerful software that I believe any photographer that is serious about their craft should use.

I have edited tens of thousands of photos over the years. With that comes experience. With this experience I have developed my own presets. These are automatic settings to apply to your images so you don’t have to edit your photos from scratch. You can get my look to your images with the click of a button. These include adjustments to tone, colors, light, grain and much more. Small little tricks that I have developed through hours upon hours of editing.

I am now giving away my favourite presets for free. I believe that every aspiring photographer should get some help along their journey as a creator and this is my way giving back to the community.
