90 minutes on 10 Tips For Optimizing Photos in Lightroom
Tim Grey took the time to provide 10 killer tips on enhancing your photos in Lightroom. Unsurprisingly, you can get a lot done to your photo in Lightroom and move from an OK photo (not that Tim’s photos are “OK”) to a much more refined photo.
Since 90 minutes are way too much time for just 10 tips, each tip is broken to mini-tips and those are broken again probably making “10 tips for optimizing photos in lightroom” a more suitable title.
Here are the very highlights of the clip, you can get much more by watching the entire thing.
- Start with the basics
- Embrace “Presence” (Clarity, Vibrance, Saturation)
- Isolate colors
- Don’t ignore noise
- Check for chromatic aberration
- Correct for the lens
- Crop (almost always)
- Go (virtually) black and white
- Clean up and more in photoshop
- Get targeted
Working this workflow once learned can almost certainty improve your photos and I suggest that you use it on a few photos and see if it makes sense for you, and if it does, incorporate it in your workflow.
