Location Portraiture Major Practice (2.3, 4.1)

Using Lightroom I imported my original RAW files onto my hard drive and created a contact sheet, in a professional setting contact sheets help organise photos and allow you to select the best photos and communicate with a client.
I applied post production on a select few images using Photoshop to copies of the RAW files, adjusting the exposure (+1.5) where it was needed in some of the slightly darker shots. I shot on a quicker shutter speed than what was needed on some of the images where I was shooting handheld rather than using a tripod, I made this decision to risk too much blur and knew I could adjust later in post.

Final Selection

After editing a selection of my most successful images from the shoot, I made another contact sheet in Lightroom – which I would then send to a client. I marked the images I will be using as my final eight images.

For the purpose of the presentation I exported the images as high res JPEGS as I would be loading them onto the blogs. They needed to be high quality but not take up too much space to prevent lagging in loading times.
