Eyes of Youth – [1PicADay]

IMG_1013ISO400, 105mm, f5.6, 1/20sec

I was going over the 3000+ pictures that I took this year and I came across this one in Lightroom. I wish I had something meaningful to say about this picture but the fact of the matter is, it’s one of those pictures that just catches my eye. Maybe it was the moment that I snapped the picture or the occasion. Who knows. All I know is that every time I come across this picture, I stop and just look at it.

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.
