For Your Photos: Bright and Light or Muted Modern?

September 29, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Every photographer has their own style when it comes to editing their final images, and I have developed two distinct looks I created using the tools in Adobe Lightroom: bright and light and muted modern.

My light and bright style is colorful and happy, and true to what your eye sees, just a little more yummy. It is best used on bright and sunny days, as the muted modern style tends to look odd on bright days (depending on the surroundings):

My muted modern style is darker, richer, and really brings out brown tones. Perfect for a fall vibe. I love using it in a forested setting most of all because the green melts away and make the subject (you!) the star. It works best on cloudy days. It is harder to get just right so it takes more time, and therefore I only offer it with 60 minute packages. If you would like this style in a 30 minute session, you can add $40 to your package.

With 60 minute packages, I send a preview of a few photos edited both ways and have clients choose the look they love most. It is HARD to choose! Some look better one way, and some look better the other. I ask that they go with their gut and pick one or the other. 

Below are some images side by side in each style. It's hard to choose, right?!
