I thought it would be nice to share a before & after so you can see a little bit of what goes into creating a final product. This is a recent photo I took of my sister one day while we were at my parents house. She was about 20ish weeks pregnant here and I just really liked this photo. I think there are some photos that just look better - and more timeless - in black and white. This is one of those. If you follow me on Facebook, you have probably seen this image.
Here is a progression of the edit. The image on the far left is the original image, straight out of the camera. As you can see, I cropped the image and converted it to black and white. After that, I cleaned up some of the "messiness" in the background and did a little shadowing on her body and added a slight vignette. This was a pretty simple edit.
Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!
