Pt 2: Mal & Lan Photo shoot

Hi All,

Finally finished the post processing of the photos. It really takes much longer than expected. i play around with the settings so much just to see what works. i think each photo takes me about 10 minutes at least. I wonder if i'm doing the right thing...i do the following
- open it in my RAW editor and play around with the settings, i try to recover as much as i can. i always play around with the temp, brightness, saturation, clarity, recovery, fill light
- open it in Photoshop Elements and crop if necessary, unmark to sharpen the image, touch up any blemishes using the dodge tool and perhaps put on a Gaussian blur to try and make the sking a bit more silky
- then i might apply a colour pop action or apply a burn action around the edges
- then i might add text or add a texture on top of the photo.

i still don't really know how to use curves or anything to fancy but i guess i have to learn. Here are some other shots i liked:
