Saturday I attended an all day class intended to up my skill level in the photo editing software Lightroom. The first half of the day was spent learning about cataloging your inventory of photos within Lightroom.
Much of that went right over my head. I have a system to keep track of my photos, and though it isn’t perfect and would probably make little sense to anyone but me, I am not sure I’m ready to change.
After all, change is hard.
The second half of the day was spent in the development module, and was the reason I was there. Though I tried very hard to focus and listen while at the same time playing along on my laptop, some of it still escaped me.
But I learned a lot of the basics, and as I practice I’m sure I’ll get better.
The photos in this blog were taken in the past week with the new Nikon Z6 camera. I’m posting the original, out of the camera image and then the adjusted, messed around with image.
Sometimes the changes are subtle, sometimes I’ve over adjusted just to see how far I could take it.
I still have so much to learn…but at least I have hope that I can learn, little by little, photo by photo I’m going to figure it out.
And maybe I’ll reorganize all those thousands of photos I already have in my catalog.
