In this post I go over how to add airy lighting and a whimsical quality to your photos.
Personally, I love it when photos have a quirky or whimsical touch to them, while still not being “over the top.”
In other words, I want the photo to be ethereal without looking like it’s been toyed around a lot in Photoshop.
In this video, I cover how to do just that!

Here is the photo with a preset played from the Pretty Pastel Collection in Lightroom!
Here is the photo with the freebie lighting overlay applied from the Romantic Lighting Collection.
I also went ahead and did a few other steps (showcased in the video below) to help give it that magical/playful look.
Below is the video that covers all the steps!
