Image Tutorial + Share | Honolulu Family Photographer

This week I’m showing you all one of my most favorite images of Caleigh and sharing a few more from that group of photos. I was able to edit and batch this set of images in less than five minutes by syncing all of my edits after doing any initial cropping and/or cloning. If you’re not batch editing or don’t know how to, I will explain a bit about it when I get to that step of the image tutorial. It’s a great way to speedup your workflow!

SOOC: ISO 640 f/1.8 SS 1/320 35mm

Step 1: I cloned that little branch to the right because it was in focus from being on the same focal plane as Caleigh. It looked a bit distracting, so it had to go!

I wanted to really bring the focus onto Caleigh by adding a vignette and I did quite a bit of feathering to really blend in the darkness on the edges.

A screen pops up letting you check any areas you’ve edited so you can apply those to your other images. I checked everything except for “Brush, Clone, and Crop” because those three areas are generally image-specific. Hit synchronize and your edit will apply to the rest of the images in your selected group!
