About This Class

I HAVE MADE THE ORIGINAL RAW PHOTOS USED IN THIS CLASS AVAILABLE FOR ANYONE TO DOWNLOAD HERE FOR FREE!

In this class I want to demonstrate my method for creating dramatic and captivating rural landscape architecture using Adobe Lightroom. 

This class should be suitable for most all skill levels and includes the entire editing process for this image from start to finish.

Concepts covered in this class include:

  • Importance of shooting RAW format
  • Exposure compensation
  • Merging HDR images
  • Color correction
  • Split tone

I am new to Lightroom, but have some experience with Photoshop. I really enjoyed this class, and look forward to using these techniques in the future. This is a really good step-by-step explanation of how to get this specific post processing look. The 'why' of the adjustments shown here are not always explained in detail, but I didn't mind that as I thought a lot of it was intuitive or could be easily googled. You could also see what each step was doing to the photo. I would highly recommend this class.
