Before and After | A little BTS editing for you!

I'm a huge HUGE fan of before and afters; I grew up in the eighties when a make-over montage was a critical part of every movie. When I started photography, I worked in darkrooms and lived and breathed Ansel Adam's system of burning and dodging ( the Zone system, check it out!).

 

I decided it would be fun to share some before and afters of my own work here on the blog once a week. 

SOOC - ‘the clean straight out of camera shot’
Post edit - adjusted for color and tone, cropped for emphasis, and straightened. Slight exposure adjustments, some very slight skin editing

the Littlest Ballerina | a Denver Lifestyle Portrait

There is just something so perfect about a little girl dancing around a room, caught up in her own ballerina dreams.  

I got super lucky the other day and got to make some portraits of *this* little ballerina girl during a very fast (15 minute) mini session before her 2nd ballet class. When you're 5, it's hard to sit still, or listen, or follow directions..... which is to say, the portraits couldn't be more beautiful and the dancer? Well, she was a dream.
