For the first post (of hopefully many) on this brand new blog, I'm happy to share with you a demonstration with pictures kindly provided by one of our TLC members, and artist and fellow photographer, Sue Tatham. In this video I take her step-by-step through my editing process.
I've had to edit and cut the video short quite a bit to be able to upload it to Youtube, so if you have questions, or specific requests, please post them in the comments below. I'll get better at the video editing thing eventually... :)
[Note (i): The images Sue sent me were in .psd format, so Lightroom treated them like jpegs. For best results, I always recommend using RAW files.]
[Note (ii): The artefact on the horizon that I removed was done much later, but I moved that section and grouped it with the spot removing on the sand to be able to save time on the video, and that is why you will see it returning after I removed it. Your eyes did not deceive you! Like I said... I'll practice my video editing skills a bit...]
Special thanks to Sue Tatham for permission to use her images for the first demonstration on this blog. If you'd like me to give your pictures a go in Lightroom and feature on the blog, please contact me.
