good old iPhone pics with Lightroom edits

As we all know, the iPhone is getting pretty good at taking nice pictures. However, I am working on perfecting the 1.2 megapixel front facing camera. It’s perfect for showing off your new hat or the never to go away duck lips. However, at times it is so grainy and allows too much light in. So, I have been working on a few Lightroom improvements to the front facing photos I have taken.  I never profess to be perfect but I love learning!

BEFORE:

Grainy but not a horrible picture taken at dusk on Fernandina Beach with my fiancé on the 4th of July.

AFTER:

Brighter, less grain and more focus on us; this photo is not retouched just edited so there are no unnecessary shadows on our faces from the cloudy and setting sun.

BEFORE:

A quick picture I snapped at the pool.  The pool is so white with the added light in the background that it makes it looks like the sun is in front of me.

AFTER:

Less light and more focus on the subject, my hat, my vibrant dress, and me (with proper skin tones)!

Jkcrowns is getting married!!!

So, as of October 19th I will have a new last name!! Funny, because I chose JKCrowns Photography using crowns instead of my actual last name just in case. Now, I love it because the new name is hard to spell. Lol. I’m marrying the most amazing man in the world and I can’t wait to post our engagement pictures. Here are a few shots I took of the ring. He proposed at the spot we will be getting married at, on SSI. So, I got a few beachy ring photos!!

Enjoy!!
