We’ve previously written about travel bloggers Lauren Bullen and Jack Morris who get paid to travel and see some of the world’s most extraordinary sights. They’ve recently started their own Instagram that shows some of their photos before and after editing, and the difference the presets make is incredible.
Jack explains the secrets to their beautifully-framed wanderlust photos, sharing how they get such vibrant shots, and saying explicitly to stay away from Instagram filters.
“I edit all my photos in the same kind of style with my own Lightroom presets so I guess they all look somewhat similar because of that. I also look at the grid and try to plan the next image to make sure it works well with the rest of my recent feed. I don’t use any mobile apps or filters, I edit using Lightroom on my Macbook Pro. If a photo looks a little dark or contrast, I sometimes tweak the edit just on the pre post Instagram editor,”
