ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment for this class is to create a simple layout of one photograph with four unique post-processing variations. Utilizing Lightroom's Develop module, experiment with the various sliders and panels to create your own creative photo edits.  Discover how quick and easy it is to transform the mood and feel of one photo into four dramatically different looks. 

DELIVERABLE

Upload your layout to the project gallery. Your finished layout should include four unique versions of one photograph (text is optional).  And remember, although there are no right or wrong ways to edit a photograph, try to create four distinct looks that reflect your unique creative vision. 

Please also share your creative process...which panels and sliders did you utilize most?  Do you like more vibrant, saturated looks or more soft/faded effects?  How do you plan to incorporate these techniques into your exisiting workflow?
