Assuming you know how to take beautifully lit images as shown in the before and you can click your mouse, and you own Lightroom 4 or 5, you can do it too. Thank you to Lindsay Gutierrez of L&L Photography for the use of this amazing image.

Finishing Touches:

We decided to visit the Illuminate Lightroom presets to add a bit of overall softness, light and haze. To do this we clicked on a few different “washes” until we got to Deep Blue Wash. Each wash overrides the last so it is quick to find the one that works.  We loved this powdery look.  But this will be a matter of personal preference anytime you are editing artistically.

And if you love “alternate looks” – MCP builds our presets as stackable as we can.  So for fun, we clicked on Dreamsicle 1 (which overrode Lemonade Slush) and upped the exposure by 1/3 of a stop. And we had this more pink look.
