By now you will have noticed that I am in no way a photographer to manipulate my pictures to no end. Yet sometimes, a shot can be made dramatically better with a few adjustments. Most of them are in Lightroom, a few more tricky ones are done in Photoshop. By no means is this a do-all-end-all workflow, but it may show you some tricks to improve your own shots with minimal effort. There are plenty of Youtube videos out there that show you people skilled in their trade pass brushes and menus at light speed, leaving you in awe of what they’re capable of. That is exactly what they want. They don’t want you to learn, just to show off what they can do. So let’s do this step by step so you can follow on one of your own pictures. Make sure you have LrC and PS handy, both come in the Photographer’s Subscription from Adobe.
