Transformation Photoshop Editing // Noah Beck // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Dorchester Nebraska Photographer

NEBRASKA PHOTOGRAPHER | Photoshop Editing Comparison | High School Senior PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION | Clatonia, NEBRASKA

Every once in awhile, I like to share a behind the scenes look at the editing process so clients can see truly how much magic goes into the edit of your images. It’s not a drag and drop quick change and sometimes I can put hours into editing a session. I just hope others enjoy the images as much as I do capturing them and processing to create the magic I first see when I’m taking them!

So. To break down a little more what I all did while editing this picture (cause hey, I know some photographers are on here and want to learn too!). I first always cull my images in Adobe Bridge software. I star rate my top favs and what I plan to edit. Then as I edit, I change the star rating so I can see progress and know what I have left. After sorting, I pull into Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) and start working in there. Lighting, I adjusted the exposure, upped the contrast slightly, pulled the highlights down a little, lighted up the shadows, bumped the clarity a tad bit. I also did a slight bit of sharpening (I typically sharpen in Photoshop instead of in ACR). That’s the basics of my edit. From there I pull into Photoshop and will run a few actions as needed depending on what I want the final outcome to look like.

There it is. There’s my workflow on an image! Sometimes I will batch edit the ACR files because I shoot with the same settings and then will tweak individual’s as needed but I try to keep my workflow consist and quick paced. These are the basic editing that happens to all files clients see. Since I do IPS (in person sales) with my clients, I do 90% editing before they view images and then smooth skin, remove minor blemishes and liquify as needed once we choose which images you want to purchase. That saves me the extra time working on details that aren’t necessary.

I hope this is helpful. And, as always, if you have questions drop them in the comments or email me! I have been tossing around the idea of a few business geared mentoring or workshops and would love to know if people would be interested in that. I feel there are so many fantastic other photographers out there that can offer posing or editing but I don’t see a ton of things about running your business so this is something that’s really important to me.

Hayden’s laughter is contagious! He invited me to his farm near Clatonia, Nebraska and I couldn’t turn it down. Here is southeast Nebraska, anytime someone offers me a fresh farm to shoot at, I allllways agree and get excited! So we walked around his grandparents farm, looking at the barns, bins and cattle pens. We checked the beans and even climbed around hay bales. Then, he took me to this magical field where there were fresh alfalfa bales waiting for us. The sun fell perfectly and the perfect mist settled into the air. We got lots of giggles as we sat around the bales and brought out his trap shooting metals. It was seriously, so much fun!

High School Senior Session // Tara Schroeder // Fairbury High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

When Tara Schroeder contacted me planning out her senior session I knew we would create something magical. Little did I know, she’d invite me down to Fairbury, Nebaska and we’d have so much fun and she’d show me so many unique and beautiful locations! From totally urban buildings, to pretty brick alleys and even the Fairbury High School football stadium. All of it was so pretty and a fantastic change up for me so I wasn’t shooting my same old farm looks.

Tara is a senior at Fairbury High School and is active in softball and cheerleading. When I asked her what she does for fun she said her and her friends enjoy hanging out down at the river, going shopping and spending time around bonfires. I love that she enjoys the country life and also likes horses so that’s always an easy way for me to connect with my seniors. I found it hilarious when I asked what is one thing that people might not know about you and she said she doesn’t like cats. Girlfriend, so much me too (allergies can do that to ya)! Thanks again for trusting me to capture your most precious high school memories of your senior year. I cannot wait to meet the rest of your family here shortly for your family session!

I’ve literally watched Chase grow these past four years and every single time I watch one of the Wittenhagen kids graduate I know it’s one day closer to not getting to see them all the time. It’s official, their last senior is graduating!! Chase came out to the farm near Wilber, Nebraska to shoot in the same locations as his older brother and sister. We did a little bit of hiking through some tall grass to get to an old abandoned car but I think it was totally worth it once we saw the sun shining through perfectly! Thank you Chase for visiting with me, super proud that you’re going into the Navy. Cannot wait to see what you do and the places you go in life!

And to compare and throw back a little. Check out how Layne, Haeley and Chase all compare! It’s kind of fun to re-create the same poses with siblings ;)

Little sneak peek inside Seth’s senior portrait session! His dad brought this classic Ford out and we couldn’t help but snap a few (ok a lot) of shots with it! Seth, you truly are a fantastic kiddo and it’s been great getting to know you. Can’t wait to dig into your session to work on editing more of these. Southeast Nebraska sure does have some amazing locations including this one outside of Clatonia, Nebraska where we took some his senior photos.

High School Senior Session // Noah Jacobsen // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I absolutely LOVE when my seniors tell me they’ve got some ideas planned for their session. Noah did just that. He asked us to meet at his grandparents farm east of Wilber near Clatonia, Nebraska. And let me tell you, when I got there, I was in Heaven!! Nothing says welcome to southeast Nebraska quite like a farm session for a high school senior!

Between the barns, baby calves and the International Scout truck/jeep. I was totally happy and more than ready to get to work and start taking photos for him! Noah showed me around the farm, including introducing me to the piggy friends, of course all the cows and then even the other animals that were walking around. We stopped petting animals long enough to get some portraits but as always, I love getting to know my families as I shoot. I think it’s really fun he also included his grandpa’s tractor. Something about old tractors truly make me appreciate all of our modern equipment as well as get super sentimental that students want to include their families heritage. The big red barn screamed at my soul of course. ;)

I am DYING to share these images. Lizzie is such a strong leader and I am so proud I’ve gotten to watch her grow up. Truly, she is so strong! The light leaks, the sunflare, the laughter, the movement. I loved everything about these shots and I think you’ll love them too ;)

Tara invited me down to Fairbury to see what her gorgeous downtown streets looked like. I'd say they didn't dissapoint and it was great to mix it up a little and work in locations that I don't normally work with! Cannot wait to share more from her session.

I've shot a few families with sets of twins in photos. But I haven't shot a family with multiple sets of twins until I met the Wehner family! It's been a joy catching up with the Wehner family from Sprague, Nebraska area and seeing how quickly their kiddos have changed in the past two years. As much of a challenge as getting everyone looking is, I'm willing to bet we've got some great ones to pick from! Doing family photography with local clients to the Dorchester, Nebraska area is always such a joy to me. I love meeting new people in the surrounding communities is a fabulous way to get to know new neighbors and friends. Thanks for coming out to the farm Wehner family.

What a fun evening spent on the farm with the Reetz family! I couldn't stop giggling and absolutely loved how much the kiddos truly loved playing and laughing with each other! We ended the session with a dirt road, a dusty sunset and some pretty bean fields. The kids all did so great and I'm so happy to share some more from their session here soon!!

What a fun group of kiddos! And the best part, I loooooved their names! Check it out, I present, Kaeden, Kynnedy, Kensingtyn and Kendryk. I have never seen such unique names that flow together so well. And they were all so well behaved!

southeast-nebraska-photographer-fairmont-dorchester-wilber-family-child-portrait-pictures-candid-farm-grass-dresses-bows-boys-girls-siblings

I was so grateful that while we were styling the kiddos mom wanted to go with these beautiful neutral tones that were very light and fun to match the grass and farm scenery we decided to go with. The kids matched so well and it just fell together so fantastic. We played ring around the rosie, we played tag, we clapped and danced then as the sun was setting, we pulled out some "flowers" to blow into the wind. Honestly, the entire session was blissful and just reminded me to slow down and just let the kids play. Sometimes you get more out of a session by stepping back and letting the fun take over and setting the camera down for a little bit to join in the fun. I've been trying to focus more on the connections and less on the technical side of sessions, and honestly, it's totally paying off! ;)

What a fun night of a quick mini session with some pretty amazing girls from the Crete High School Cheerleading Squad!!

Madison + Barrett did a collaboration with DRP and we spent a night with some pretty fun cheerleaders. First we took them over to Kelsey's to get styled with the perfectly matching and styled M+B pieces then we zipped out to the farm near Wilber to snap some fun shots of the girls. One of my favorite stacks that Kelsey has created in the Rose Gold Summer Sunset because it's so perfect for any outfit but I also love and wear Chloe's Camo set quite often for daily wear since it's so neutral colored! Basically, you can't go wrong with any set you choose from M+B!!

RISE UP

This year the cheer squad is really focusing on the team motto of "Rise Up" so I asked Kara to help fill us in on it. Here's what she had to say!

Rise up means different things to different people. Rise up meant that we're going to strive to do better for the school or the student body. It can mean we're going to do better with financial situations, or even take our competition to another level. Meaning we'll add more tumbling skills for state, or different things we've never done before. 

Basically, their entire team is focusing on rising higher and doing the best they can do. And I totally agree that it can be applied in so many ways to everyone, no matter your situation. Choose to rise up and be above what others are doing. Do the right thing. Be the good in someones life!!

Senior Model Rep's // Senior Session // Bre Zoubek & Lizzie Kubicek // Wilber-Clatonia High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

When I started my search for Model Reps I didn't know who I'd find. But I did know that I wanted girls who were inspiring, outgoing and fantastic role models in their communities. I wanted girls with goals who planned on moving mountains in the future. I lucked out when these two applied! These girls are not only stunning, but they're also really smart and driven young ladies who will do great things with their futures!

Bre and Lizzie are some of our Class of 2019 senior model reps and we were so excited to welcome them out to the farm near Dorchester, Nebraska to go play and get to know. Both Bre and Lizzie are from Wilber and will be graduating from Wilber-Clatonia High School in May of 2019. (It's insane to say that, but I'm already excited!)

Of course, I've known Bre since she was little (and my mom's maiden name matches her last name so that basically makes us directly related!). She's the sweetest, hardworking, humbled person I've met in awhile. She is always uplifting, always encouraging those around her and is constantly making friends and making others laugh. (cough, spitting gum by accident to make Lizzie crack up)

Lizzie I've also known practically forever. She's equally as sweet and is filled with fire just like her mama! She's always making people smile and willing to act funny just to give those around her a laugh. The girls are mega active and works all the time so getting to see these girls was tough but we made it work.

This was a quick impromptu shoot with a storm creeping in so we quickly did a mini session and got home before the winds hit but truly, it reminded me why I love my job when I got home to drop the images into my computer, I was in awe of just how amazing they looked and the images we captured.

Senior Session // Andres Ruiz // Crete High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

Andres is graduating with the Class of 2018 who is a totally laid back guy. I like to ask my seniors to give me one word that describes themselves and his answer was awesome. He said he was altruistic. I honestly had no clue what it meant so I went and googled it! The result: "Showing a disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others; unselfish." This is amazing. This word easily describes him so much!!

Andres is from Crete, Nebraska and goes to Crete High School. I love that he enjoys running and is on the high school cross country team, it's always nice finding youth who enjoy the sport of endurance as much as I do!! Luckily, his sister helped to rename our cat from Oscar to Oreo but sadly, I don't think the cat cared besides having a human to love on him.

Family Session // The Messman's // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

Sometimes clients walk into your life and you unknowingly gain friendships for years to come. The Messman family was one of those families and I am forever grateful for getting to know them and watch their kiddos grow.

I met the Messman's over three years ago as a family of three and since then I've watched little Grayson grow and eventually his little sister, Ryann, join the crew. What I love the most about them is seeing how different the kids are. Watching them go from tiny three month old babies into busy little toddlers who are ready to go on a treasure hunt to find the magical treasures.
