While I often post photos edited using various features of Adobe’s powerful Photoshop software, I thought it would be interesting to try a new series here at the blog where I post a photo only edited in Lightroom. No masking, no layer adjustments, nothing fancy really – just essential edits in Lightroom. The reason I wanted to try this is because I believe Lightroom is one of the best pieces of software a photographer can have, and I’d like to encourage new or unadventurous photographers to branch out and try it for themselves. I’d also like to show that you can create beautiful images without a ton of advanced post processing know-how.
So for my first installment of this Lightroom-only series, I present you with a photo from Kyoto, Japan. I took this in Kyoto’s famous Higashiyama District, wandering around in hope of seeing a geisha or two. While I did see some geisha, there were too many people to get a good shot, so I settled for some photos of the atmospheric area itself. This was a favorite, and indeed was edited only using Lightroom.
