So, I am trained on Photoshop. I don't use Lightroom a ton, but sometimes I like to flip over and use it. But, most of the time, I am working in Photoshop. It's just where I feel the most comfortable. I know it frontwards and backwards and could probably edit in my sleep (LOL), no, but really, though. Since I don't have a huge studio setup, I make it work for myself. I use smaller backdrops than I could imagine some photographers use, but it works for me in this stage of my photography business. I just wanted to show an example of my before/after editing work. This was done in Photoshop.
I don't always do heavy editing, only when it is needed. These photos took about 5-10 minutes each of my editing time.
Skills used: adjusting brightness and contrast, dodge tool + burn tool (exposure 50% and using the Midtones Range), content aware, gaussian blur
