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!
Grainy but not a horrible picture taken at dusk on Fernandina Beach with my fiancé on the 4th of July.
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.
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.
Less light and more focus on the subject, my hat, my vibrant dress, and me (with proper skin tones)!
I finally got to meet my wedding photographer and I can’t imagine a better one out there!! She was so sweet and fun the entire time. I knew she was there by the giggles, awws, and how she posed us. But it was all just an amazing night out with my future husband! Even with a wardrobe malfunction!!!
Britt Croft Photography is the best!
Of course I did my own save the date cards. They came yesterday so I can’t wait for everyone to get them!
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!!
Who knows? Maybe one day I will be photographing cover art for a band! Nice to give it a shot!
Note: I am not a model but I have been experimenting with face expressions and how they are captured on digital film. These were taken with my 8.0 camera phone so the quality is off but I enjoyed working with them all the same!
Here are a few editing techniques I like to use. I included the original as well. They are represent the same person, me, but each photo offers a different perspective.
Champagne Dark, Grand Marnier, Pink Dark, Raspberry, and Rose Dark (with real rose petals inside).
Wishing I was in the realParis, France but this will do just fine! Check out the rest under Session Information: Example Photoshoot.
