Shoot and Edit...

Ashley has been doing this fun new linkey, Shoot and Edit. I thought I'd join in while I wait for my new monitor to warm up (Fedex just delivered it, and I need it to get somewhere close to room temperature before I can plug it in!).....so I thought this would be a fun distraction!

(Next week, I'll try to get in on the "shoot" part of it too!)



Here we go!

SOOC



We seem to be a tad bit underexposed for my taste, folks! :) (btw....it was FREEZING out doing this shoot. I'm getting cold just editing these photos!)

So here's my edit:



I followed alot of the things Ashley had down, as that's how I tend to edit to begin with! (Only I use Lightroom to do my initial edits instead of Adobe CameraRaw, as I'm usually editing a lot of photos! For this edit, I did use Adobe CameraRAW)

I did one other edit, because, well, my new monitor isn't ready yet.....hehe. This one I did entirely in Lightroom 3, just for something different.



It's a little "Twilight-y," but I like it! :)

Wow! What a great memory! Kudos to hubby for playing along!

Your edit really made me want to sit and imagine the story behind the pic - and could really feel the warm love (instead of the freezing cold!!) lol!

I love the drama you added in the second edit! I'd love to do a snowy shoot! And it's good to have things like edting to distract you while waiting for things! :)

I really like how you edited it in lightroom. I really need to edit more in lr3 and practise on some of those presets.
