Raya- I love your photography! I've been a fan for several years now! Just wondering how much time you spend editing photos...and what is your favorite treatment to photos?


raya said...

Thank you!
Allison, I don't spend too much time editing my photos. Honestly, I don't have the patience for it :) I do basic corrections for exposure, color temp, contrast in Lightroom and then if I do anything above that I add a cross-process effect at about 20 - 25% or I use Totally Rad Actions. I am leaning towards more natural looking photos with true color these days though...hope that helps!

Hi Raya,
I can't wait to look around more on your blog.
I love your work.
Just gorgeous light!
I am going to go poke around your website now, but I just wanted to sincerely thank you for choosing my entry as one of your top 5 picks in the I Heart Faces contest.

I have been so obsessed with learning the technical side of photography lately that it's thrilling, and a good learning experience for me, that a picture that is by no means technically perfect, or even trying to be, can still strike a chord with the viewer.
