Before and After: Plant, Bokeh, and Light

2016-09-01_0001

To achieve that neat little light trick, I held up a plastic sandwich bag to my lens. I moved it around until I got a cool effect. The end result was awesome! I also love the bokeh (those sweet little circles of light) in the background – gorgeous! The biggest thing for this edit was increasing the dehaze slider in LR to about +60. I usually embrace the sunhaze, but the effect it had when I brought the haze down was just stunning. Other than that, I did my normal edit. Bump contrast + clarity up, lower the highlights just a bit, and bump up mid tones in a curves layer. That’s it!

Happy Friday! ❤
