So a bunch of people have asked me how I edit my photos and how I get my "look". When I was just starting to do photos, I asked a whole bunch of photographers how they edit and I was met with silence, hostility and deliberately unhelpful responses that meant nothing; "oh wow how did you do that?", "Just a little from column A and a little from column B". Without knowing any better and with no one to guide me, I went through an embarrassing period of selective colouring, excessive vignetting, fake lens flares and worse! So for those who asked, I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner, I'm not being secretive, I'm just a bit lazy. Anyway, photography related jargon incoming.
To be honest I don't really have one main way of doing edits. Recently, I've been trying not to edit my pics too much. I've seen many photos ruined with over editing, many of them my own. While editing is no substitute for getting it right in camera, it can help. Most of the time the more noticeable edits happen in Light
