I saw a good deal on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 during Black Friday sales back in November and decided to take the plunge, but hadn’t had a chance to sit down and learn how to use it properly. So the last few days I’ve been spending some time working my way through The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers. The above is a photo I took back in 2010 and tweaked in Lightroom. I’m actually very impressed with the program’s capabilities. It’s amazing what a little work can do to really enhance a photo. Here’s a link to this same photo that I had posted on flickr, (admittedly yes, processed) but I feel like this Lightroom version is a lot more natural looking, not quite a punchy.
