N.S.L: WEEK 42 – #Lightroom4 #Photoshop #CS6

I’m starting to understand what all the fuss is about!!!

I tried the more popular workflow of starting from Top to Bottom of the panel in the Develop Module. No subtle adjustments HERE but I really wanted to see what the sliders could do.

Never Stop Learning Week 42 was a focused look into Lightroom 4 and I finally got a better understanding of what it even is… Ask somebody that knows a little bit about Lightroom and trip out on all the different descriptions you’ll get =D
I downloaded Lightroom 4 as a free trial just before going to the San Diego Photoshop Users Group‘s April 2012 meeting. Here’s the EXAMPLE of my first time launching Lightroom.

Thought this might be a good chance to put Content Aware Fill to the test… I CAN DIG IT! … sorry Taylor!

Here I wanted to cool down the temp and try for some crisp clarity. I wanted a lighter feel but I also wanted to practice making some calculated adjustments. Also hoping to add some focus back to the ship with the vignette.

So I ended up liking Content Aware Fill better once I had a better idea how it works.

Graduated filters on the top and bottom of the image. The main adjustments were made with the exposure and clarity but I also introduced a new color.
