Editing is such a crucial, final step in allowing your vision to come through. For me, Adobe Lightroom is my choice for post processing, mainly because it’s so darn easy to use.

For this before and after, I’m going to show you how I took an image of my daughter playing in the sprinkler, from color to black and white using only Lightroom.

A little bit about this image before we get started. I was drawn to this image because it just screamed summer to me, the way her face is turned upwards towards the sky with her tongue out catching the drops reminded me of those childhood moments that are so very fleeting. The viewer isn’t able to see the sprinkler in the shot (it’s far off to camera left) so the water droplets almost look like rain. It was such a fun moment and I was so very excited to catch it.

Now, on to the video!!
