For this "before and after" edit I am using a shot from an album cover session I did with the bluegrass stars Darin and Brooke Aldridge.
My camera settings were 1/400 sec, ƒ/2.0, ISO 100.
I edited this photo to this Spotify playlist.
If you'd like to see all the specific editing decisions that I made with this photo then download the RAW file, use the Lightroom preset + VSCO Film's Kodak Elite ll 50-C camera profile + use my Alien Skin Exposure custom preset in Alien Skin Exposure X2.
That's a lot of a processing so if you have questions along the way feel free to ask in the comments below.
