Another drive-by shooting. This time somewhere on the journey between 1770 and Yeppoon (my camera doesn’t have GPS, it’s not that fancy!).
This is a bit more of an “experimental” processing – I had just downloaded the demo of Lightroom 4 and I couldn’t resist playing around with the presets. Anyway I kind of liked the result.
I’d never used Lightroom before. Prior to this I used Adobe Bridge to browse my photos and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) to prep them ready for import into Photoshop (I shoot exclusively in Nikon’s RAW format NEF). Lightroom effectively combines Bridge and ACR, allowing me to browse and make most of my adjustments with just one tool, significantly cutting down on the need to import into PS. The best bit is that all the adjustments made in Lightroom are nondestructive and the history navigator allows you to keep track of exactly what adjustments have been made for every single photo and to easily reverse all your steps. Anyway, I’m a convert and have since purchased a licence (£100 seems pretty cheap for Adobe software!).
