Here we are again – another tutorial on how to edit photos in Lightroom! I really am getting a lot of great feedback on this Let’s Edit series and I hope to continue to grow it in the weeks and months ahead.
Just a quick update for you – In the coming weeks I plan to announce a new branch of “Let’s Edit” which will hopefully be a lot of fun. I am also hoping to have more information on a premium subscription option which would get you exclusive access to all the RAW photographs I use in these videos. Stay tuned!
This Week on Let’s Edit
This week we’re looking at a pretty simple (and very common) photograph. I took this in the middle of one of those long backcountry highways while I was traveling on business in Georgia. As you can see it’s kind of boring…
To give it a bit of spice I went to the old selective color trick and brought out the yellow lines while desaturating everything else. Now this is something that people do all the time and it can be a really fun trick to pull off – but I do think you need the right kind of photograph for it. It’s also a bit tricky to do selective color in Lightroom as you don’t have the layers and other tools that a program like Photoshop has at its disposal – of course that doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
I hope you like the video and if you do attempt this kind of edit on your own photography I’d love to see some links in the comments.
