And does anyone know, was that bad boy supposed to come with instructions? LOL...I guess I was expecting a manual to read---but all I got was the cd! So needless to say I'm still learning through trial and error how it works. I need to find some good online tutorials---suggestions?
So far with the *tiny* bit that I've figured out, I definitely like it. Makes it much easier for me to "save" those photos that are too dark, etc...and when I did a trial upload to shutterfly I'm no longer getting a warning for insufficent resolution...it now lets me print them up to huge 20-30 prints! So we've solved the problem of printing large sizes :-)
Here are some screenshots of me playing around with lightroom this morning
|So on the left is the too dark photo, and on the right is how nicely it brightened up with some easy adjustments|
|playing around with black and white edits|
Here are a few other pics (that you've already seen) ...that I played around a little with in Lightroom. I think they look nice
|Played around with different color boosting to highlight those eyes :-)|
|Tried an "antique" finish on this one|
I think this weekend I might take Raya to the college in town and try a photoshoot....I think we may try Finn's family pictures at the college and I'd like to walk around and find some good spot. We'll see if Raya is feeling in the photo mood this weekend....not holding my breath, but maybe icecream bribery will help ;-)
That's all I have today! I have baby Finn and Brielle is a little fussy so we'll keep it short and sweet today.
