I photographed this sweet baby last summer at a church picnic. Brown eyes can look flat without catchlights, but converting to black and white really brought out the detail.

Day 17 - After

The Edits

  1. Apply the Naturally BW Lightroom preset from Presets Heaven, a free download. This is a preset for Lightroom 2 or 3, but can be used in LR4 using the directions from Day 3.
  2. Tweak exposure.
  3. Remove the little scab at the top of her nose.
