Why Adobe Lightroom 4 Rocks!

December 05, 2012  •  1 Comment

This is why you need me to retouch your favorite photographs.Painted Ladies I took this shot six years ago tomorrow. Believe me, it looked nothing like this in camera. In fact, once I got through post processing it in Adobe Photoshop, it still sucked. That didn't stop me from sending it out as a Holiday Card that year (in print) and in 2010 on Facebook. Now, I will admit that I am a much better retoucher today than six years ago, but to be able to process this image in such a short time (30 minutes) in Adobe Lightroom 4 blows me away. Before you ask. The moon is not fake. It was there.

Here is what the original RAW NEF photo looked like.

Here is what I could do with the technology and my skill set at the time:

Yes. These are the same photos. Could I have achieved better results in Adobe Photoshop at the time?  Absolutely. Now, with the Kelby On line Training and Adobe Lightroom 4, it is so much easier and faster.

So, here it is. My Holiday greetings for 2012!
