A new year, a new medium! I’ve decided to venture into the world of video, and thought it would be interesting to show you how I post-process my photos using Lightroom. It’s such a powerful tool and I’m still often surprised at how much detail it can find in seemingly dull images.
I recently posted a shot from Loch Leven in Scotland, which I had initially dismissed because it really failed to capture the scene as I had seen it. The exposure was all wrong, but I knew there was a great sunset at the time and some beautiful scenery. Sometimes the camera just can’t capture the light as well as your eyes, especially the old point and shoot I was using at the time. I wanted to post some more images from Scotland so I decided to have a play and see what I could do in Lightroom.
It’s definitely the most post-processed image I’ve published on this blog, so it’s a great example to show off what Lightroom can do in a few short minutes. All of my images go through some form of post-processing, from cropping to contrast and clarity. For me it’s a crucial part of the process, so I thought I’d share it with you.
Do you use Lightroom? Or have any comments on my first video? Was it interesting to see my process?! I’d love to heard from you!
