I have learned so much in the last couple of weeks with my new camera and my new editing programs I am pretty proud of myself. I have began taking pictures for a web designer here in town that was in need of a photographer and bam, I was in. I have had to edit my own pictures in a timely manner to be prompt in getting them back to her and so far she has been very pleased. Turns out she is a photoshop master so I will be learning some new things from her as soon as I get the chance to spend a day in her office like a fly on the wall with a notebook. Since she is the photoshop guru I have decided it would be best for me to take this opportunity to learn Lightroom. I am able to add filters and minimal editing now quickly and upload to a drop box without having to watch a 30 minute tutorial to do so. I have been able to produce some quality pictures in a short amount of time, and that is an accomplishment. However my true goal is to get fast at Photoshop and that is a whole different ball game.
Here is a picture I edited and created a filter to keep for in Lightroom. It’s always more fun to edit pictures of big events in your own life, so this was a blast for me. It’s too bad the shot didn’t capture Elvis though, my brother married my husband and I wearing a sweet Elvis jumpsuit.
The learning continues …. as a my photo editing skills progress so do my photo taking skills. Yippeeee!!!!
