I have no experience using Lightroom but I'm going to give it a try. This week's theme is about post-processing RAW images. I love taking photos but I am not well-equipped with the knowledge of photographer. I do know how to play around with the aperture, shutter speed and ISO but nothing on post-processing until I met my partner.
He educated me on using Photoshop to edit my photos and what's the deal with RAW images.
I hope I'm doing him justice by editting this image of Okunion statue.
I am trying to bring a dramatic effect to the image and to get viewers to have a feel of how sacred this piece of art to the Japanese culture. At the same time, i want viewers to get the sense of peace and serenity.
What i did to the original RAW image:
- play around with the basics: exposure, tint, clarity, blacks, whites, temperature, vibrance and saturation.
- lens correction
- and dehaze.
I had fun exploring Lightroom. I do agree that it is similar to Photoshop in some sense but overall, I can definitely utilize both softwares to make my stills look amazing!
