Shoot and Edit: Week 29 – Laughter…SOOC
Welcome to the 29th week of Shoot and Edit: Part 1. Click HERE for all the details and upcoming prompts/themes and past tutorials. This week our theme or prompt is “Laughter” (this is just a suggestion, you can show us any SOOC shot…much like I did this week). You have until Wednesday each week to link your SOOC shot up on Jill’s blog. On Thursday, you can link up your edits with ME after following some of my tips on how to edit your shots (or just post your edit on Thursday and you can pick up my tips for next week).

You’ll have to forgive me this week for using a photo taken last month (especially since I used another shot from this session yesterday)…in fact, you probably remember a very similar shot posted a few weeks ago from my session with Casey, but I love her laugh too much not to share Here’s my SOOC:

Laughter EXIF

I think this photo is very nicely exposed,  but I’m not sure that I would do anything different from my normal processing…I might not even edit my own shot this week. We’ll see how I feel on Thursday.

Fortunately, I have found a few guest tutorial writers…starting with Caroline (Frog-Photoblog) to share their knowledge (including some great tips and tricks – if you like freebies, she also shares some free presets on her blog: here) using Lightroom! You may know Caroline from the Communal Global, as she is one of their contributors. Be sure to click over to Caroline’s blog for your lesson on Thursday…also let me know if you know of any others that might be interested in sharing their editing knowledge with us.

If you don’t use Lightroom or if you’re just joining the challenge, this is a great opportunity to review previous lessons. In the meantime, I plan to do two things:
  • Edit one photo from our FLICKR GROUP. If you are interested in me potentially editing your photo, just add it to the group (make a note in the comment section within flickr if you’re adding it to the group but don’t want it edited by me).
  • I’ll also edit my photo (maybe). I will not write a tutorial but I think I’ll let you guess what is different.

With that said, be sure to check out other “Laughter” SOOC shots at:
