Besides questions about Joshua Tree, perhaps the most common question I get asked is about my pictures. What camera do I use? (iPhone 7 plus), what filter do I use? (usually VSCO M5 &/or Color Story Glitter Guide Tori), etc etc. Honestly, I am generally inclined to just give people a quick brush off kind of answer, and it’s not because I am trying to be mean, it is because I’m no expert and feel unqualified to give advice. Recently though I’ve had a change of heart. My friends Kim and Nicole started an Instagram project called #ThEditRoom where they share their tips for editing. Granted, they are both way better editors then I’ll ever be, but seeing how thankful people were for the info, and given how much I’ve enjoyed their tutorials, made me realize that I have learned a thing or two that might be useful to share. So today I am gonna show you a couple of apps that allow me to fix small things that can ruin an otherwise pretty great picture- backlighting and objects that need to be removed.
Here’s the picture I need to fix:
Such a sweet moment I captured of Prairie and her cousin Lola playing Ring Around the Rosey- but that dumb sign keeps distracting me, and obviously it’s a little backlit.
