Disneyland Engagement Portraits

Continued from Megan and Brandon in Disneyland

While we shot this set of images in Disneyland, I was not thrilled that the lights behind Megan and Brandon were dark.  Comparing the two final shots, there is no question that when the lights are out, the image suffers, and while you may never have noticed it, if I had never shown you the alternative, there is now doubt that turn them on, was a must.  Now, I didn’t have an option ast Disneyland to pester someone until they turned on the lights.  In fact, they are probably timed to turn on only a dusk.  So, I was obliged to fix this in post-production.  But as many of you know, I am loathed to open Photoshop if I do not absolutely have to do so.  So I will show you how to take care of this in Adobe Lightroom.

By the way, I don’t hate Photoshop.  I love it, but it is only used in my studio for very serious work that ca be done nowhere else.  Most of the time, we can get almost everything we need to do, done in Lightroom.  We only use photoshop to finish our Artist Edited Images.
