Adobe Lightroom Classic CC: My first attempt!
I've had Adobe Lightroom CC going on two years and this is my first attempt to edit my photographs with the software. In my honest, I'm surprised with the results and the outcome of these portraits.
First and foremost, I am a Photoshop junkie! For years now I've always prefered Photoshop over LR Classic CC. Though the work flow is entirely way longer, in my opinion it was way easier than LR. I recently collaborated with one of my favorite photographers out of Ocilla, Georgia to get more practice with 'Golden Hour' photography (behind the scene link here> youtu.be/gmgMihNXCNc) I knew this was a perfect opportunity to practice in LR.
Lightroom is slightly more complex (to me) but I decided to create a Dreamy & Airy preset. These type of presets are often seen in wedding photography and I love that style! It was actually easier than expected. In Adobe Lightroom Class CC it allows you to play with your settings such as: Exposure, Highlights, Tones, Luminous and other settings. In my opinion it's similar to Adobe Camera Raw CC (I haven't figured the differences out yet). The only difference to me, is my results.
How to create a Dreamy & Airy look?
Simply up your photograph's exposure, highlights & shadows. I primarily adjusted those settings. To have more colors pop, I messed around with the colors, turned up the vibrance but lowered my saturation just a little. It helps to watch tutorials. If you'd like to download this preset, let me know so I can create one and send it to you (FOR FREE).
My final thoughts
This was my first time editing through Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and I am now a big fan of the software and I plan to use it more often! Here are a few pointers I've discovered as I've practiced with it over time:
