Not really my bag, they all look like they have been through a lightroom preset. I know a lot of people like the washed out look though. Personly I like the style vinz did as they show more photography skill ant the use of light.

Not my bag, either. But...if folks will buy it, I will provide it. This gal is BUSY!

Taken last night in the canyon around 6:45. It was fairly dark already so I was able to do a 2 second exposure on this with no filter.

Hey Peeps...How would you describe the processing of this photo?

https://www.facebook.c​om …9422081346&type​=1&theater (external link)

Not my "cup of tea" either!!! I was going to comment when you made reference to being a generation thing last week. I'm of the older generation and can appreciate some good photography that is masked by that awful washed out style. I have a 40yrold FB friend who has just become a full time pro 'tog specialising in Baby and Maternity pics. Every shot she does is the same bleached / washed out look although many of the subjects are crystal clear. I will only click "like" if I truly like a shot. She is making good money, & fully booked out 6 days a week until February and is up processing her work til midnight every night. Proud of what she has achieved with her 7D in just 18 months and today she has her 1st shoot with her brand new 5Diii.

I really do believe it is a generation thing and have wanted to post a link to this style of photography to ask for opinions, just like you have done. :D

Brenda, provide what the customer wants and become proficient with the shots for both styled finishes. There are lots of professions where you have to satisfy the customer's needs that you don't necessarily like yourself. 30 years ago I worked in real estate for a few years and many ladies would say they would love the job of selling houses .... but my goodness .... 95% of the houses you show are not what you'd ever live in yourself. :rolleyes:
When you have a steady full book, that's when one is able to choose the work / style you take on. :D
I'm confident you'll get there! ;)

for people like us and for the whole fashion industries, they appreciate those style.

for normal people, not all like those. mostly they love the normal colors as long as it will not look like a snapshot. that's my opinion only.

maybe next time, i will show only one picture with different pp approach. only one so you don't waste your time. again, just me.

Yeah, I'm thinking of trying to find/make a preset to apply to a couple of virtual copies and call it good.

Thanks for the encouragement. I do want to develop my own style and will eventually provide that as my unique product. But for now I'd also like to figure out how to do what seems to be so popular so I can at least offer it if it's requested. I had a customer request sepia on a black lab shot...not my idea...but I knew how to provide it. This washed out look I can't seem to replicate.

Who am I to argue with a paying customer, right?


Sooo....how do I do that washed out look? Is it just over-exposed and low saturation? It seems kind of "peachy" in tone. Ideas/Thoughts?

I like the effect personally and I use it on some of my photoshoots, especially fall ones. Here is a session the other day edited with that effect. Clients loved them so hard to argue with it....

I don't have a "style". I use whatever effect I feel best goes with a photoshoot. Generally, that is just a nicely edited color version. It all depends on location and lighting as to what editing will work the best.

Here is another shoot with our family using a "supreme vignette" I created.... It only works in Lightroom 5 and it is my most used brush/vignetting tool.

The reason I posted this was to show the contrast of images and how to use certain presets in certain situations. I don't have a style and am happy that customers don't expect a certain look from my images, even though I think I have a certain similar feel to them which to me, is more important. Using the "creamy vintage" preset does not work as well on the second set and the "supreme vignette" does not work as well on the above set. Backlit vs shaded etc etc. If you want any of the presets, send me an email to coreyhardcastlephotogr​aphy@gmail.com (external link) and I'll send them to you.

ALL sorted! God knows why, but the battery hadn't held it's first charge?! I put it back on for an hour and it started up, and all good. ...

Very odd but very similar happened to me a few days ago... fully charged my 2yr+ battery and popped it in my camera... next day - No Charge - dead.

recharged the battery again and it has held a charge...

I blame aliens.... damn things are focusing negative ion rays at my home... damn aliens... :confused: :rolleyes:

I just changed out my batteries today. When I checked my two extra batteries, the Canon battery had not held its charge while the Sterlingtek battery was at 100%. I topped off the Canon charge but I did notice when it was installed, the recharge performance indicator (Page 268 of the manual) showed one less bar, indicating it isn't recharging as well as the non OEM battery.
