Independent Learning

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. DSC_3878

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!!!!

  1. This is so cool! I have always been intrigued by photography and Photoshop, but have never really had a chance to play around with it! It looks like you are doing an awesome job!


  2. What luck to get to work with someone who is a photoshop master! I’ve been so curious about Lightroom, but I feel so short on time to learn it all. I still cling to easy stuff like the Aviary app and Picmonkey. But my dad was amazing on photoshop and used to do all my major editing flawlessly. I would love to learn, one day, when I can put the time into it. Thanks for sharing!
