Before and After – Ellen + Tobey

I’ve been playing around with Lightroom and Photoshop to help give my photos a little different look. Its really incredible how powerful these tools are to completely change the feel and look of a photo. Below are examples of the same photo after running it through Lightroom and Photoshop.

Day 6 – Golf Range Flare

golf2a(iso200, 85mm, f/5.6, 1/400sec)

I went to the golf range today for the first time in about nine months. As expected, my golf swing sucks. Pounding 180+ golf balls didn’t really help either. In fact, hitting that many balls may have tweaked my back. It’s a little sore at the moment along with my left hand.

In between pounding golf balls, I took a few snapshots. I waited until the sun was setting so I could attempt to capture some flare. This is my favorite pic of the bunch. What do you guys think?
