Project Description

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to walk through the editing process in Lightroom using one of your favorite photographs. The image you chose can be of anything – a portrait of a friend or an image of vast landscape – your goal is to take it to the next level with the wide variety of settings and adjustments Lightroom has to offer. By going through this project, you'll learn how to use the tools effectively for both basic and advanced editing techniques. 

DELIVERABLE
