Edgar, our beloved feline kitty is one of my most sought after subjects. Mostly because one he is very cute, two, extremely handsome, three, patient and four, usually willing. And that just makes photographing him that much more fun.
So here is a before and after of him hanging over our leather couch looking quite thrilled with having a camera in his face. Note his one ear has detected something other than the click of my shutter button.
The before is on the left as seen right out of the camera. And on the right, a little bit of tweaking in Adobe Lightroom. Some sharpening, blacks for enhancing and I added what is called a Preset to spruce up the overall colors, warmth and feel of this image.
Image specs, Nikon d700, 50mm 1.4 lens, 1.8 aperture, ISO 640 , 1/40th of a sec. Preset used, Cleopatra by One Willow Boutique
