How To Edit Wedding Photos In Lightroom Without Presets
Learn How To Edit Wedding Photos In Lightroom – No Presets.
Today you’re going to learn how to edit raw wedding photos in Lightroom, without using presets. When I started editing photos using Lightroom… I had no idea. I was a completely Lightroom beginner, and so I stumbled around trying to find out how to edit my wedding photos in Lightroom. I had no idea how to edit dark and moody images or how to make colors pop. When it came to editing wedding photography was my biggest challenge. There were a LOT of wedding photographers out there, but not a lot of information being shared on how photographers edit their wedding photos in lightroom to get their specific look.
This was partially because when it comes to editing wedding photos in Lightroom, one of main things that separates a wedding photographer from the other wedding photographers in the area is their edit process. So it makes a sense they’d play their cards close to the chest. A lot of them didn’t edit their wedding photos from scratch either. In fact MOST of the wedding photographers I know use Lightroom Presets as a part of their work flow.
Why Do Most Wedding Photographers Use Lightroom Presets?
Presets can be a great tool for editing wedding photos – in our studio we couldn’t even function without using the SE Genesis Preset Workflow Pack – They save so much time. When you’re editing wedding photos in Lightroom and you’ve got 2000 photos per wedding, you can’t edit every single photo from scratch without using presets.
But like any tool, presets are only good if the photographer has a strong working knowledge of how to use them – And how to get their images to look the way they want using Lightroom WITHOUT presets.
So without further ado, lets dive in to learn how to edit wedding photo raw files without presets inside of Lightroom!
