Before and After Macros | Toronto Fine Art Photographer

Good Morning and Happy Saturday! 

Every Saturday morning since May we have kicked off our weekends with a trip to the local Farmer's Market. It's so perfect because it's just a 5 minute walk away to the park at the end of our street, and we get breakfast, a flower bouquet for the week and fresh air all in one! 

Something else I also do every Saturday is document the gorgeous farmer's market flowers that we bring home. Usually I take pictures of the bouquet as a whole as well as some freelensed macro shots so I thought this week I'd share some before and after shots with you. 

I love moody edits on nature/macro images, so I have fun trying to challenge myself to create something a little deeper and darker when editing lately which means underexposing, bring down highlights and shadows a little and usually adding a little vignette to bring more attention to the subject. Also, on a side note, I've only been using Lightroom for about the past 2 years. Very rarely do I use Photoshop anymore, unless absolutely necessary. 

Here are my before and afters for this week. Enjoy!
