Photo Friday: Lilly Pads in Lightroom


Lightroom 4  is my new friend and I’m pulling out old photos that needed some more work. I used to have a feature Photoshop Friday, but it’s now named Photo Friday. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of photos to “fix” or improve. I have thousands on my hard drive.

I love how the result and am even further excited about being able to decrease the jpg noise from my old Fuji Fine Pix S1500 camera. My old camera took good pictures, and I pushed the limit with it, but now I’m using a Canon Rebel shooting  RAW and I can see a huge difference.  This is one setting I’m putting into my presets.

Below is the straight out the camera photo. Look for yourself the difference.

    Yes Lightroom is my new best friend too, having only purchased it a month or two ago. Sometimes when I look back at my older photos I think about reworking them now that my editing tools and abilities have improved, but at the moment I have too many new photographs to get through.

      I feel your pain. There are so many recent photos I haven’t posted but I learn a new technique and want to try it out. I have whole photobooks that I want to do over again that could be better. Why can’t I just stop time. LOL
