so, it happened.  you are behind on editing and it seems like the possibility of catching up is far fetched.  most of the time, this occurs with our personal photos.  if you are in business like me, editing client images becomes a first priority and my personal images stack up, unedited.  after my daughter was born, i simply got behind on editing.  life was busy and, while  i found time to pick up my camera to photograph, finding time to edit final images wasn’t happening.  before i knew it, she was 8 months old and i had 10,000 photos to sort through.  no joke, 10,000.  yes, they needed to be culled, but still.  10,000.  my first thought was, “she is going to be 1 year old in 4 months!  i want to make a photo book of her first year!”  i knew it was time to catch up on editing and, by doing 4 simple things, i caught up in about a month.  if you need to catch up on editing, try doing these 4 things and feel the relief!

do you get stuck with deciding what photos to keep and which to toss?  try these 3 things before you delete a photo.

4 Tricks To Catch Up On Editing If You’re Really Behind

4 Tricks To Catch Up On Editing If You

this post contains affiliate links.  thank you in advance for supporting bethadilly photography.

1.  Set A Daily Goal

for me, i wanted to catch up in a hurry.  the stress of being behind on editing was really getting to me, so i decided to set a daily goal to help me catch up on editing.  my goal was to edit a minimum of 10 images per day.  this meant, by the end of the day, i had at least 10 images that were fully edited and in their final state.  some days i did more, some days i did the minimum 10.  if sitting down daily to edit isn’t doable for you, set a weekly goal.  the point is, set a goal that includes a specific number of complete images in a specific amount of time.

2.  Dedicate A Time of Day For Editing

not everyone is an early bird like me, but i found that waking up about 2 hours before my baby in the morning allowed me to do a little editing.  while i didn’t edit for 2 solid hours (remember, i only needed 10 images a day), i made it a goal to begin my day with editing.  by starting my day with editing, i would really get into it and find that i would continue during nap time or after my daughter was in bed for the night.  seeing progress is motivating.  pick a time of day that is best for you and be consistent with it.  pour yourself a cup of a relaxing beverage and allow editing to be time for yourself.

3.  Share Images As You Go

there is a power of motivation that comes with sharing images.  as you are editing, be sure to share images along the way on social media.  for me, i found myself encouraged to edit because of all the kind comments and feedback i received on my images.  as you catch up on editing, use this as an opportunity to update your social media.

4.  Batch Edit When Possible

if possible, batch edit in lightroom when you can.  batch editing can be done when you are editing a set of photos all taken on the same day, in the same light.  batch editing allows you to edit the first picture from the set and then duplicate that edit on the remaining images.  of course, you will have to go through those images and be sure the batch edit was successful.  sometimes the light or white balance changes, even within minutes of taking two photos, so you may need to change your exposure or temperature as you check an image.  even if you have to make minor adjustments, batch editing can still save you time.

don’t let being behind on editing discourage you, it’s going to be okay.  by setting achievable editing goals, dedicating some time to edit, letting others encourage and enjoy your images as you edit and utilizing the batch editing feature in lightroom, you are bound to catch up on editing in no time!  hey, if all else fails…bribe yourself.  i used creating a photo book as a reward, so it’s totally okay to motivate yourself too.

Photographer Mentor : 5 Reasons You Should Have One

when we look back on our journeys with photography, i think all of us can choose a handful of things that really helpedView full post »

when i saw that positive pregnancy test, my first reaction was obviously personal excitement and joy and…relief!  being the type A planner i am, my second reaction was, nursery.  paint colors, soft tones, white balance, bright light, and all things baby.  i obviously wanted to create a darling space for my baby, but as a photographer my goal was to ensure that the choices i made would ultimately design a room that will photograph well.  i knew the nursery would be a main place for photos, so i wanted to have the room be photographable in it’s elements.

while these tips for how to design a room that will photograph well will work for any room, i will use our nursery as an example for this post.  whether you are designing a living room or master bedroom, here are 5 things to keep in mind.

did you know paint colors play a huge role in your photographs?  read how to pick paint colors for better white balance.

How To Design A Room That Will Photograph Well

How To Design A Room That Will Photograph Well | Bethadilly Photography

1.  Keep Prints Soft and Calm

when you are thinking about what prints to incorporate in your room, keep them soft and calm so they don’t overpower the room.  think about the photographs you will take in that room and ensure that the prints you choose won’t overpower your subject.  while prints are great, use them sparingly in small places so they don’t overpower the room.  prints should be a supporting role in your design, not the main focus.  if you truly want a room to photograph well, remember that you want your subject to be the main focus so don’t choose a loud print that will complete with that.

to incorporate a supporting print in my daughter nursery, i chose a simple and calm pale pink print for her window bench as a way to bring a print into the room subtly.  (and since i know you are going to ask, that window bench was made by making a cushion for an ikea bookshelf.)

2.  Choose Your Paint Wisely

when you work to design a room that will photograph well, your paint choice will make or break your success.  choose a paint color that is soft and neutral, as paint creates color casts on your subjects.  read more about how picking paint can create better white balance.  for our nursery, i chose silver ash, a behr ultra premium paint.

3.  Think About Natural Reflectors

when i was choosing my furniture, i thought of furniture and how it could be a natural reflector.  because furniture is one of the biggest things you will put in the room, the color you choose will create the tone for the entire room.  because i wanted to design a room that will photograph well, i chose white accents because i knew white furniture would lighten up the room and help me create brighter photos.  i knew that having a white chair and crib would allow me to place my baby on or in either one and light would naturally reflect off of the white.

4.  Keep Color To Accents

color is such a great way to add personality to a room, but think about adding color as accents.  this will help you to incorporate color, but not in a huge way that will affect your white balance.  i wanted to add pink to my daughter’s room so i looked for small pieces like pillows, art, and dolls to incorporate color.  it helps to create a pink feel to the room without taking away from the neutral tone that really makes the room photographable.

the pillowfort accents by target inspired a lot of my design choices for my daughter’s nursery.  and don’t we all love sweet outings to target?

5.  Sheer Window Treatments Only

if you remember anything from this post, remember that your windows are so important!  that is where your natural light is and, therefore, your window treatments control the type of light you create.  if you put red window treatments on your windows, you will create a red color cast on your room.  yuck!  always choose light window treatments like white or cream to ensure that the light coming from your windows stays natural and free from color casts.  while i can’t remember the exact pair of curtains i chose, amazon has a huge variety of white curtains to choose from.

as you design a room that will photograph well, be sure to keep these 5 things in mind when making your design choices.  by staying away from bright colors that will create color casts, being mindful of your window treatment, incorporating color on smaller scales and thinking through your furniture selection, you will create a room that is ready for any camera!

when we bought our current home, i was so excited to paint.  and not for the reasons you think.  it really had nothing to do with decor, it had all to do with photography.  i really wanted to create rooms that would photograph well by picking paint colors for better white balance.  and also because…i really love to paint.  it always amazes me how something as simple as wall color can completely transform a room.

let me be clear, the paint colors that work for my house may not work for yours.  there are so many things to consider when picking paint colors for better white balance, such as how much light your home gets and what color casts come through your windows.  some of my friends adore the paint colors in my home, but when they went to paint the same colors in their home…it simply didn’t work.  but since you all ask, i will tell you about my paint and give you some tips for choosing your own paint.

do you want your home to be more photographable?  be sure to read how to design a room that will photograph well for 5 easy tips.

Picking Paint Colors For Better White Balance

Think Neutral

not only is neutral timeless, classic, and clean, but it also photographs really well.  having a neutral and soft color on your wall will help ensure that your wall color adds a natural and neutral feel to your photos, allowing your subject to be the main focus.  think oatmeal and soft grays.  i find that my style is close to joanna gaines’ (by the way, her book is amazing) in that i like timeless and classic colors that are soft and neutral and don’t steal the show.  your walls should help to tell the story, not be the story.

Avoid Loud Colors

say no to any primary colors or anything that is bright or loud.  bright colors on walls make for terrible photos because they create color casts on skin.  colors like pink, orange, red, bright blues, greens, purples will create unnatural skin tones on your subjects.  the skin will soak in and reflect the bright color of the wall, making the skin tones look unnatural and affecting your white balance in a negative way.

Picking Paint Colors For Better White Balance | Bethadilly Photography

 the final colors chosen for my home were dolphin fin and silver ash, both behr ultra premium paints.

Consider All The Factors

every home is so different based on the home’s light and what is outside it’s windows.  for my home, i have a lot of trees outside of my windows so that affects the color on my walls, and affects what paint color i choose.  when picking paint colors for better white balance, you must consider all of the factors that affect your wall color.  does it work with the color casts coming in your windows?  does it work with or clash with your furniture?  does it work with your available natural light?  as i said, the paint colors that rock on my walls may be completely different for you.

Bring Home A Variety of Samples

once you decide on some paint colors, bring home samples of each color.  your home improvement store should have small pints that they can mix up for you, allowing you to test the color before investing in gallons of paint.  i believe these test jars are around $3-$4.  and they are worth every penny.  just because paint looks good on a paint chip does not mean it looks good on your walls.  i have even brought paint chips home and hung them on my walls, but nothing is as accurate as actually painting test strips on your walls with the actual color.

bring a variety of samples home in a variety of shades.  i believe i tried about 9 neutral shades, everything from light browns to soft grays, when photographing my home office.  by painting your samples on a variety of walls that get different light and right next to one another, you will definitely get a feel for what looks best for your space.  i found it easiest to use foam brushes to sample paints as you can use a different brush for each color and dispose of them afterwards.

Choose Lighter Colors

you know when you paint a room and suddenly feel like it is brighter?  well, it is.  choosing lighter neutrals can help to brighten up a room, making it easier to photograph in.  this may not be the case for every room, as window light is a huge factor, but lighter paint can help lend a brighter tone to your room.  and don’t we all love a nice bright room when it’s time to bring out our camera?

Test For Color Casts

stand next to your paint sample that you tested on your wall and see if it casts any unnatural color onto your skin.  when picking paint colors for better white balance, you want a paint that is neutral and won’t interfere with skin tones.  if you find that your paint color is lending color casts onto your subject, it may be best to avoid it.

picking paint colors for better white balance is going to be different for everyone as everyone’s home is different.  however, the tips are the same.  remember that neutral is better and that loud colors will be a nightmare for white balance.  take your time and be thorough as you choose your wall color as you try soft neutrals and test how the light in your home changes each color.  have fun with it!

of all the types of photography that i like, i am emotionally drawn to candid photography.  there is something about a candid photo that holds so much emotion and honesty.  candid photos hold everything that is true and i love capturing honesty.  for week 2 of the bethadilly 52, our prompt was candid and i felt encouraged to not only photograph a candid moment, but one of my daughter and i.  i wanted to create a photo that documents the relationship between mother and daughter, encouraging me to think about some of the most honest moments my baby girl and i share.

in the mornings, before we start our day, i get her from her crib and pull her into bed with me so we can cuddle and be cozy before the busyness of the day unfolds.  it’s in those moments that i put my forehead to hers, talk about everything from what we will do that day to reminding her how much i love her.  it’s just a true moment that i wanted to photograph, to show her when she is older.  i love everything that this photo holds and am so happy i photographed this for week 2.

achieving proper exposure is very important because it allows you to not only portray your surroundings accurately through an image, but it allows you to preserve the details within the image.  should your photo be too bright or too dark, you may loose important detail that should be included in your photograph.  when focusing on the light that you give an image, keep these 5 tips for achieving proper exposure in mind.

trying to decide if you should keep or toss a photo?  be sure to try these 3 things before you delete a photo when editing.

5 Tips for Achieving Proper Exposure

5 Tips for Achieving Proper Exposure | Bethadilly Photography

this post contains affiliate links.  thank you in advance for supporting bethadilly photography.

1.  Take Control of Your Camera

one of the easiest tips for achieving proper exposure is to take control of your camera and shoot in manual mode.  when you are in manual mode, you are making the decisions for your camera instead of allowing your camera to make the decisions for you.  you are allowed to tell your camera how much light you want to bring in or leave out of your frame, as you manipulate your settings.

are you scared on manual mode?   i was too…for a really long time.  manual mode definitely confused me, until i read this.  then i finally understood.

2.  Think Through Your Settings

as you are photographing, be sure you are really thinking through your camera settings and continue to ask yourself if they make sense.  is your ISO high enough to bring in more light to your camera?  don’t be afraid to bump up your ISO!  two quick and easy ways to brighten up your images is by raising your ISO and/or lowering your aperture to a smaller number to bring more light into your camera.  think through your settings and make adjustments accordingly.  as you are adjusting your settings, remember that a properly expose images is metered to 0 (zero).  in the diagram below, your goal is to make sure your settings (ISO, aperture, and shutter speed) all work together to balance to zero, which is considered proper exposure.

3.  Monitor Your Back of Camera Constantly

one of the easiest ways to ensure proper exposure is by trial and error.  as you are photographing, be sure to make a habit out of constantly monitoring your back of camera to ensure that your photos look exposed.  by constantly monitoring, you can quickly make adjustments to your camera settings to either raise or lower your exposure in camera instead of relying on post processing to fix your exposure after the fact.  monitoring the back of your camera helps you with achieving proper exposure while you are photographing in a variety of light situations, as the light is always changing.

5 Tips for Achieving Proper Exposure | Bethadilly Photography

4.  Be Aware of Blown Highlights and Clipped Blacks

while it is important to monitor your highlights and blacks in camera, i do this more in lightroom.  the easiest way to ensure that you are not blowing your highlights and clipping your blacks is by turning on the highlights and black indicators in lightroom.  on the upper left and upper right of your histogram in the develop module of lightroom, you will see two triangles.  the blacks indicator is on the left, the highlights indicator is on the right.  simply click on each triangle to turn on the indicator.  if you are blowing highlights, the image will turn red to indicate the areas in which the highlights are blown.  if you are clipping blacks, your image will indicate those areas in blue.  this allows you to make the necessary adjustments with your sliders to heal those areas to achieve proper exposure.

clipping blacks and blowing highlights means that you are losing relevant information because those areas are too dark or too bright, respectively.  by either darkening or brightening those areas, you are preserving lost information within your photo.  for some photographers, they like to intentionally blow highlights or clip blacks because its part of their photography style.  this is totally okay!  but i encourage you to understand the rules of exposure before you decide what rules to break.

5.  Monitor Skin Tones

one of the easiest tips for achieving proper exposure is to monitor skin tones, if you are photographing a person.  while photographing a person, keep their skin in mind as your are adjusting your settings and make sure that you are making it look as real as possible as you think about exposure.  as you choose your camera settings and begin photographing, check your back of camera and compare the skin tones that you are photographing to the skin tones of the person right in front of you.  do they match?  are they accurate?

achieving proper exposure is a skill that takes a lot of practice and comes with time.  be patient with yourself and allow yourself the grace of time to learn about exposure.  do your best to achieve proper exposure straight out of camera, but for those times when you don’t, adjust your exposure in lightroom and try again next time!  it took me years to really understand exposure so don’t worry if it takes you a little time as well.  photography is a journey.  by keeping these 5 tips for achieving proper exposure in mind, i hope it inspires you to monitor your exposure better to create better images.
