First steps in Lightroom 3.2

Published December 3rd, 2011

Today, my Girlfriend and I drove to her horse and I decided to take some pictures(Rather typical for a photographer). She was sitting on her horse alone for the first time ever, so today was a very special shooting. It went better than expected for her, but I had a hard time with the bad weather and the poor lighting and I was not sure how good the photos would look. I started thinking about what I could do to make the photos look good in post production and the first thing that came to my mind was: Sepia.

But I didn't want to use Photoshop. So I asked myself what program I could use.

Then I remebered that my friend Alex nagged me for days that I should try out Lightroom, and I listened to him for once ;)

So I tried out Lightroom 3.2, and I was surprised how much you can do with it. It is so easy to process photos and you can make a lot of adjustments so that even the worst photos look good afterwards. I found that the Sepia preset was really cool and I also did some corrections on my own without any preset.

I wont cover the details right here but there are several awesome tools to create unique looks for your pictures and you can transfer them easy to a whole series of pictures. Lightroom is definetely an improvement to my workflow

The photos right here are my first photos processed with Lightroom and I am sure that I will continue working with it. So stay tuned for more!
