Risky Business

by - 2/25/2015

Hope everyone's week is going great.

 First of all I have to apologize for the different editing effects, I had a hard time decided what editing direction to take with this post. One my biggest challenge in blogging is the editing part. I love creating the outfits, shooting the looks and posting them.  However whenever I sit down to edit the images,  I am always seconding guessing myself. Trying to decide between what I like  and what will  be visually appealing on the blog and on Instagram.  Something I have to remind myself  is that there is no such thing as a "perfect" picture, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I need to create something that I find beautiful and hope my readers appreciate it too.

So for this post I am taking a risk and posting the same outfit in different filter which is a big no-no in the blogging world.  I use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom for editing my blog images. Have you noticed how many bloggers , every outfit is edited in same filter.  I am not quite there yet but when I find a filter that I like and that can work with every outfit post,  you will be the first to know. 

What is your editing process like? And any advice on editing?

  1. First off, beautiful outfit. I love it. Leopard print always goes so well with red and i particularly like the tie.
    So far i have stayed off using anyfilters on my blog pictures mainly because I wasn't sure if it would affect the quality of the images but I am happy to see that it doesn't. Everything looks best in black and white but unfortunately we also need to show the color.

  2. This look is absolutely beautiful, chic and confident. I love the addition of leo prints.
