SOOC Saturday!

So, I thought I would link up with Marvelous Mommy this week for SOOC Saturday! (Straight Out Of Camera) I thought this was a cool idea. Everyone who participates shares a photo-straight from their camera! Then, if you want, (and yes...I want!) you can share an edited version of the same photo... here is a photo from a recent photoshoot:

From photo shop

Camera: Nikon D3100
Lens:AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G
Focal setting: 18mm
Aperture: 22
ISO: 800
Shutter speed: 1/60 (Open just long enough to capture the colors of the sunset!)

The edited version:

From photo shop

I went into Lightroom I upped the exposure just a tad and created a light vintage preset.

Maybe someday I'll post about my lightroom/photo shop settings and share a preset? Do I have enough photog readers where that would be interesting enough? let me know!

In the meantime.... go sheck out some of the other's SOOC posts by clicking the link below! Happy Saturday friends! :)

I really like how you set up the shot. Very simple elements (except for that beautiful girl) that make an whimsical, enjoyable picture. I actually like the extra richness in the original shot.
