Welcome back my friends to another episode of “Let’s Edit” here on Phogropathy where we learn how to edit photos in Lightroom!
Last week we looked at ‘The Lake House’ which was a great introduction to editing a night sky photograph. This week I thought I’d pull out another photograph from my night sky collection and see if we could take it a bit deeper.
In this episode I look at solving a common problem in night photography – adding foreground light. I also take a look at removing some unwanted man-made lights and I talk a bit about how I’ve come to accept the fact that I live in a populated part of the world and have very little chance of finding a slice of the horizon that doesn’t have light pollution.
On Another Note
With this being the fourth episode in the series it marks the completion of my first month running this series here on Phogropathy. I’d like to hear feedback – bad or good – on the videos.
“Let’s Edit” has been a great learning experience for me and I’m still trying to get it off the ground. I’m thrilled to see that the videos are being watched and most people actually seem to be enjoying what they see, but I really would like to know what you’d want to see more of as well.
I’ve continued to spend time recording videos and uploading them to YouTube in my spare time so there’s content currently scheduled through the end of February and I’m thrilled that I’ve been able to keep it up! I just hope it doesn’t get too repetitive.
Don’t forget to check out the community site and start sharing your thoughts and opinions on these edits. Oh and don’t forget you can always share your own before and after photos to show us what you did or even ask for critique!
And on that note I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s video and don’t forget to stop back again next week as we continue to learn how to edit photos in Lightroom!
