Planting.

Really must get back into this! This was the first time of really trying to use the cloning tool in lightroom – as well as a bit of tweaking of colours and cropping.

Catching up!

Well, I haven’t posted here for a while; and, this isn’t going to be a photo post, but it is about photography. I’ve got a Samsung Note 12.2 pro; and when I’ve been away, I have taken it, rather than a laptop, using Nexus Media Importer┬áto import photos from the SD card to the tablet. […]

Blackbird.

I’ve not posted here for a while, (though I have been editing!) [I might do a bit of back filling at some point!] However, I have also been shopping, and now have a spanking new D7200, and a new Tamron 16-300 mm lens. The drawback is that Lightroom doesn’t support the new camera, so I […]

The pier.

This wasn’t one of my “Photo a day” – but it was one that I took today and had a play with. After cropping, I experimented with exposure, shadows and contrast – before deciding to convert to black & white, and apply the LR’s preset “look 2”.

Evening Sailing

It wasn’t quite “evening”, but the sun was getting very low. Again, I was playing about a bit with LR, but the main adjustments I made were: Cropping Reducing exposure, increasing contrast & highlights. Most of the other adjustments didn’t make that much difference & were me seeing what I could do.

The boat.

I have challenged Janine to an “edit a day” (rather than the photo a day). I’d originally set up this blog to try to let me practice my editing – as well as sharing photos, so think that I really ought to do it myself as well. Not that much editing – I straightened it, […]
