Kelsey and I photographed an hour before sunset which is my usually time to photograph outdoor locations. 

We photographed against a white wall, Stairs and along the beach. We found a neat Lifeguard tower and caught some gorgeous sunset tones. I used our Editorial Pack & Teal And Orange Pack to edit these images. You can view our products used to edit this shoot within our SHOP

Alanna // Laguna Beach // Editorial Pack

Sara LouComment

Alanna and I met up in Laguna Beach at one of my favorite locations. We shot an hour before sunset and I used my Nikkor 35mm 1.4 lens. I shot this session slightly underexposed to maintain sharpness and to achieve an almost gritty look when I bump up the exposure and apply my presets.

I edited this session with our Editorial Pack. Before apply the presets I adjusted my white balance and exposure. Then I applied the presets. Our Editorial Pack is my most used Presets/ACRs for editing my Instagram posts. They are reminiscent of analog film and have squashed highlights, mild film grain, and a boost in vibrancy. They are great for portraiture, weddings, engagements, editorial, and street photography. You can view this pack with before and afters within our SHOP
