Portrait Editing | Simple Beauty Portrait

Before and after editing of an alternative fantasy beauty portrait

Editing portraits, especially camera phone portraits, doesn’t have to be complicated or too time-consuming.

Sometimes it’s just as simple as one or a few favorite apps to get your portrait photography ready to share.

My favorite portrait editing apps:

  • Lightroom: Create presets to get a consistent look across your photo shoot. Great for vignettes, lighting effects, color toning.
  • Facetune: Great for making details pop, adding our effects (including faux lens blur), lighting effects, healing, and textures.

The more simplified you can make your process, the easier and quicker it’ll be to create and edit beautiful photo sets without having to turn on a desktop and pull out a tablet. With a few apps, you can shoot and edit beautiful portraits on your phone or iPod!

What are your favorite editing apps? How do you streamline your editing process?

After a photoshoot, hang onto all the photos, and go over the shoot again months later.  You’ll see them with fresh eyes, maybe see a new direction to take the images.

When something doesn’t align with the shoot’s theme, hang onto it for later, and reinterpret the theme.

Patience.  Sit.  Wait.

 

How long do you keep the original images from your photoshoots?  Do you find you see things with a new light?
