Lately I've been focusing a lot on nailing the correct settings in-camera during photo sessions, and relying less on editing afterwards. This may sound like an obvious practice every photographer should be practicing right off the bat, but it takes a lot of technique to connect with and pose your model, correct your white balance, adjust your shutter speed, iso, and aperture, choose the perfect background, make sure exposure isn't being blown out of proportion; it's all these aspects that make the idea of leaning heavy on post processing appealing.
It's so worth taking the time to adjust these things, because editing is that much quicker, more fluid, and you get to focus more on the stuff that excites you, like planning themed sessions for me, than spending HOURS on editing and trying to save what you have. It's taken me 8 years to get to a place were I truly love my photographs and feel very comfortable during sessions.
It also helps having a gorgeous and talented model. Mary was incredible! She listened soooo well and came up with a lot of great poses on her own! Despite not feeling so well physically before the session, she ending up killing it for this little spring session! <3
