It took me a few seconds to fall in love with that session by Angie from Myrtle and Moss Photography. The light in these photos is so dreamy, and she used the LXC presets so perfectly. She agreed to share some of the photos with us and also a little bit of her inspiration for the photoshoot.
“Having recently moved to Vancouver Island, I can honestly say I know why it’s considered one of the most beautiful places in Canada. Not only are the landscapes inspiring, but the people bring out just as much creative energy in me as anything. In the short amount of time being here, I have made some incredible connections with other artists and creatives. People who take their art way beyond being just their job — it’s their passion. These people have pushed me to create more and more, and I am equally as excited for them to see them succeed and create beautiful art.
This session was set up on a whim with other creatives who were as equally excited for this low-key session as they are with the big, elaborate styled sessions with 20 people in the background. There is no better feeling than a perfect evening, nice glass, golden hay, and a model that you just sync with so well. It felt easy and effortless, which is also what I wanted this session to portray.
All of these images were edited in Lightroom using LXC (03 mainly) and finished in Photoshop. Also edited with LXC, you can watch the little video I made from the session here. Using LXC has not only allowed my work to be more consistent, but it has saved a lot of post-processing time. Having such a lush environment around me, I find it helps control the sometimes overpowering greens in my images and also works well with my darker and moodier sessions. It’s my one go-to preset that I know works well with my style and can transform nearly any image into something deeper.“
