I have been following Meg Bitton's work on www.megbitton.com (external link) . They are fantastic. I want to try and edit my photos to achieve the kind of effect she gets in her pictures. I know attending her workshop would teach me, but I cannot afford the money. I use lightroom 5. I do not have photoshop. Is it possible for experts here to guide me to get this effect? Thanks in advance.

Hmm...my suggestion as a "starting point" would be to play with your Lightroom Color Presets, find one that has some appeal to you, then tweak things to taste.

Aside from that, well, I'm not familiar with her work, but typically someone would have an app like Photoshop alongside of maybe Lightroom, and has spent years developing their "look". Basically if you are really serious about "picking up" her look, well, I'd suggest you save the nickels and dimes for her workshop!

Thanks Tony for the suggestion. For now, will start playing with presets. Saving up for the workshop, yes, but its going to take me a long long time with the current US dollar to Indian rupee conversion rates :)

Some nice pictures but any website that has music on which it isn't readily apparent how to turn off should be banished to hell.

Add a light purple layer at 10% in photoshop?
EDIT: Gimp (external link) instead of photoshop, in your case, it should work just as well.
(And use your lens wide open)

Look around for some Lightroom presets. Her style is pretty 'in' right now, and there are a bunch of different presets and actions (for Photoshop) that achieve a very similar look.

Get on YouTube and find a tutorial. There are tutorials for just about everything. SLRlounge does a lot of editing tutorials in LR.
GIMP is free and pretty powerful. PaintShopPro is very powerful and less than $80 US ;)

Look for the "cinematic" thread. That'll get you started in the right direction.

This type of processing is all about distant wide open shooting (often through things like grass, branches, etc.), lifting the blacks, proper white balance and complementary split toning. Her's seems to be purple shadows and cream highlights. Actually very easy to achieve.

I would venture to guess she shoots nearly exclusively with an 85L or at 200mm very often. distance helps tremendously with this style to compress the surroundings and backgrounds.

This place has interesting plugins but they are not inexpensive. No tutorials but it may give you ideas.

That's a serious allegation to make. What specific photos are you referring to?

I don't know. She shoots with a similar style, but processes differently. Beyond that, this isn't the first time I've seen Megs work come up here. I don't think she's swiping Lisa's pictures, any more than I think she's copying Lisa's style. Perhaps you can provide an example of Lisa's work on Megs page?
