Creative Editing in Photoshop

 

Editing is a calming and cathartic process for me. Sometimes when I upload an image I know exactly where I want to take it in my editing process. Other times my creative editing process is an evolution of steps and experimentation. Photoshop opens up a world of opportunity for infusing touches of magic and imagination into an image.

In this article, I'll be sharing my creative process for the image I processed in Lightroom in the last blog post article. If you didn't get the opportunity to see my Lightroom edit for this image you can find that here: A Clean Edit in Lightroom.  

Watch as I take the following image from...

ISO 200, 150mm, f3.5, 1/1250SS

...to this creative edit. 

ISO 200, 150mm, f3.5, 1/1250SS

I want to note that there is absolutely nothing wrong with my Lightroom edit. Some photographers prefer cleaner and more realistic edits. I often do in many of my edits but from time to time I enjoy infusing artistic touching into my images. Creative editing might not be your style and that is entirely okay. Each photographer should embrace post-processing within her unique style.
