I do not consider myself even an amateur in photography. But over the past year I have learnt a few tricks by watching, following, questioning others who I consider to be expert.
Hence, I have learnt to experiment, with not only the camera but also a few editing tools. And I have come to a conclusion, not only it is important to click well but more important is how an image is edited.
Sharing a few tips I learnt along the way with a sample image makeover for novices like me.

This is the makeover –
The image was cropped before editing. To edit, I have used –
* Lightroom 5
* Exposure : +0.10
* Contrast : +25
* Shadows : -17
* Whites : +10
* Blacks : -60
I love to play around with image editing. It is like an infant learning to walk, touch, taste and explore.
Cheers !! 🙂
