Before & After #2.

This is definitely one of my all-time favorite family photos I've taken.  I exposed this shot for the highlights (the sky), knowing that the superduper sensor on my Sony mirrorless camera can dial up the shadows with minimal penalty.  All I did to the original file here was toy around with basic settings in Adobe Lightroom: White Balance, Highlights/Shadows, Hue-Saturation-Luminance, and Tone Curves.  That's it...I just moved the sliders around until the photo appeared to taste.  Boom!

Younger kids generally abhor posing for family photos, so I just let them run freely around the parents. :)

Camera settings: Sony A9, Sony/Zeiss FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA lens @1.8, 1/6400 second, ISO 100.

Happy Shooting!
