Smile Long Overdue Matisse Photoshoot!

It occurred to me that I hadn't went on a little photo shoot with my own dog Matisse in so long, and after looking through all the picture threads here I felt motivated to take some new photos of my little one!

So I took him to a local park and brought my DSLR and some treats. Luckily he hasn't forgotten how to pose for me!

Thought i'd share the editing process since I'm always interested in how others edit their photos.

So the first shot is the original shot from my camera. It's under-exposed, the colour temperature is off and generally needs some work. The light was quite dim when I took the photos but I really didn't want to exceed ISO 800 in order to keep the noise levels down, but I took the photo in RAW so I had plenty of editing freedom in Lightroom, as i could up the exposure without making the photo much noisier (grainy).

I then adjusted the exposure, contrast, saturation etc and made the photo a little warmer. Since Matisse is black and scruffy, I usually have the use the brush in Lightroom to lighten his eyes and around his eyes so they pop a little more!

I wanted to try something different. I recently got ahold of the VSCO presets, anyone checked them out? -
They recreate the old film camera processing, a look I quite like. So the last picture in the sequence has had a VSCO filter applied to it.

Anyways, I'd love to see how you guys edit and read about what software etc you use
