Weekly Theme 10

by Dane March. 09, 2017 671 views

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.

Okunion Statue

What i did to the original RAW image:

- play around with the basics: exposure, tint, clarity, blacks, whites, temperature, vibrance and saturation.

- vignette

- 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!

I love the colors, vignetting. You have gotten the dramatic effect that you were going for!
I am amazed by the fact you did this for the first time in LR. Do you mind if we feature this edit in our FB page?
