Day 34 New workflow

I have been struggling to find a good workflow in photoshop for awhile now.  I think I may have finally  figured out what I like to do and what I don't like.   Sometimes I swear editing the pictures is harder than taking them! 

Today I had to redo a few pictures I took of Ty since my father asked for matching ones of the kids to put in frames.  I had taken plain pictures of Xander and Dylan on the white background sitting on the red chair but for Ty I used all Valentines props. So today we set out to take a non Valentinish picture of Ty. 

The taking of the pictures I don't have a problem with, but editing after to make them all look the same is where I run into difficulty.  I tend to edit one picture one way and another completely different.  Which doesn't really bother me but for people who want all their pictures to match I can see how it can be a problem.  Today I was bound to figure out a way to make them all match.  I learned how to batch edit on Lightroom.  That helped a LOT with white balance issues.  Then I set out to do the same type of edit with each picture. 

This was going great till I got to the last picture which I decided to go just a little different. on........it's my photo of the day :)

This is a beautiful photo. I know what you mean about editing. It drives me nuts sometimes. I use Photoshop Elements. Great job, though!

Love this shot! Very cute.

I did go check out the others...looks to me like you are having more WB issues than you realize. Are you WB in camera/studio...or just post processing?

I love studio shots. You did an excellent job. I know nothing about flash or indoor lighting. When I save up enough money, my next purchase is a speedlight. Eventually i'll learn. Wonderful shots.
