Oh Baby, Oh Baby, Oh Baby

This new family was a dream to work with. Using natural lighting and using props, we were able to catch the moment. Using Lightroom and Photoshop to edit the photo makes it so easy. It is so nice to make sure that mom looks her best. and notice the neutral colours which help to keep the eye focused on the family instead of the clothes.

Lightroom… the love hate relationship.

When you start with photography and you really want to get serious about it, one of the things you need to do is learn how to get your photos ready for print. One of the programs I had heard about but never really touched, was Lightroom by Adobe. I started to do some research and I found it was affordable and it really did the job. Once I acquired the program though, I found  it’s a very complicated program to jump into if you’ve never used it before. I had a wonderful helping hand with Lightroom at the camera shop. One of the workers there was quite familiar with Lightroom and he was be able to get me started with the basics. Now we have YouTube videos’ to give us a helping hand. Alot is available to help you to learn lightroom. Once I learned how to use the basics I discovered a fantastic world of dials and sliders that helped me to control the output of photo that I took. Yes, Now I was in control of the end results. I highly recommend that if you have no other programs on your computer and you are a photographer at least try this one out. Perhaps another day I will discuss some of the basics of lightroom to help you at least import your photos in the program and tell you what kind of options that it has in there. Well today was a busy day.  I’m finishing an art piece portrait for a family. Looking after the house. Visiting with my grandsons, yes it was a good day.:mrgreen:
