When you edit a landscape photo, it’s easy to get carried away. I know I’ve been guilty of it even years after being into photography. And many times, it’s not even easy to see when you’ve gone overboard. In this video, Mark Denney gives you six signs that will help you recognize when you’ve gone too far with the image editing. And when you learn to recognize them, they’ll help you improve your post-processing skill.
One of the questions I get a lot comes from new photographers wanting to know whether they should be working in Photoshop or Lightroom. I particularly enjoy their deer-caught-in-the-headlights look when I reply, “Both!” While it’s true that either of these incredibly powerful Adobe tools could, in theory, provide photographers with everything they need to edit their images, I really am a firm believer that a strong workflow rests on a solid foundation of both PS & LR. Having said that, though, learning just one of these applications can be a daunting task for even the most dedicated photographer. Learning two can seem insurmountable.
