Introduce yourself  - 
 
Out on the Palouse - Moscow, ID (USA)

My first post to this community. New to Photoshop and Lightroom, but a lifelong hobbyist, photographer, I enjoy shooting just about anywhere, anytime.

This is something of a self-portrait, sort of anyway.

The photo was suggested & taken by my wife, but processed by me entirely in Lightroom.

As beautiful as it is, the Palouse is one of the hardest places to photograph. It's easy enough to get shots with all the open space but hard to capture the impact of this incredible landscape.

+David Dickinson , would you be willing to send me your original RAW file and let me work on it? I would like to start a "Fix My Photo" video series on my YouTube channel to help people with workflow. I can send you my email address if you're interested or you could host it on dropbox, onedrive or something like that.

Hello everyone. I believe I have already posted once, but it's been awhile. I love photography. I have CS5 and Lightroom 4. I've been studying and researching on how to make my photos look better. The problem I have is trying to figure out what action I need to take, after I've done my basic editing in camera raw. So, I am planning on posting a picture every now and then. Please give me constructive feedback and steps you would take.

Thanks

Hi, my name is Rey and I'm a photographer living in South Africa... This image here is probably one of my best work so far, I shot myself in my flat using a two light setup and a reflector, the rest was put together in Photoshop...

Hope you enjoy it !

My first Lightroom edit.  As a long time Aperture user, I was reluctant to switch to LR. I was really in a comfort zone using Aperture.  However, as everyone knows, there has been very little news on the direction Apple is going with this product.  After no news at WWDC and from what I have seen from LR, I decided to take the plunge.

I downloaded the 30 day trial and started my journey.  I almost gave up, because using Aperture was so easy, but knowing how powerful LR is, I decided to keep going.  I am becoming more and more at ease and my adjustment time is slowly but surely going away.  I can't wait to use this tool to the extreme.  I look forward to picking up many tips & tricks from this community.

+David White Thanks for the compliment and welcome. I am becoming more familiar with LR. I'm sure I will pick a few things up here. My plan is also to start using Photoshop more as well. I like the 9.99/month plan. I always wanted PS, but couldn't justify the price since this is just a hobby for me. I look forward to all of the help and everything I can learn for. The community.

Hi, I'm Walt, and I really love Photoshop - I mostly use it to color my images and create digital paintings. This image below however was created using photos of space and underwater creatures: no drawing, and it was fast. Photoshop is simply amazing!

Stephen Holst

Introduce yourself  - 
 
Hello everybody.  I'm new to the community.  I'm an amateur photographer with his first DSLR (Nikon D3200).  I've had the camera for over a year but just got Lightroom.  

Over the past year I've been shooting in RAW+JPEG.  I've tried several of the free programs to work with RAW files but I'm already seeing the ease that comes from Lightroom.  Darktable was probably the closest in comparison but since it doesn't run on Windows it just wasn't usable for me.

Please feel free to comment on my photos and give me feedback.  I know I have a lot to learn about Lightroom and photography in general.

+Graham N. Culleton are you suggesting that I cheat?!  hahaha just kidding.  I just took this photo mid-game but I agree.  Sometimes I forget that real bokeh (not the fake stuff created by filters) is based on the distance from the camera and not the proximity to the center of the shot.
