Two Stones of the Highland – Lightroom Only

This is a photo I took back in August along Highland Lake in New Hampshire. I’ve shared a couple of photos I took on this evening, but this photo I edited totally in Lightroom. In fact, about 75% of the edits to this photo were done on my iPad in Lightroom Mobile. I’ve written before...

    Sunset At Newick’s Lobster House

    Today’s edition of my Lightroom Only Series comes from Newick’s Lobster House in Dover, New Hampshire. I don’t know about you, but I’m a big seafood fan, and Newick’s is one of the best places in New England to enjoy some. One of the reasons for that is the amazing view that comes along with...

      Monsoon Magic

      Recently someone on my Facebook page challenged me to produce a sunset photo processed only in Lightroom, and this is my answer to that request! Although rainy season in Japan certainly produces a lot of rain, it also produces some incredible sunsets. We’ve had a string of those this year, but I’ve been super busy...

        Sunset at The Yasaka Pagoda In Kyoto

        One of the main places I wanted to visit and photography during my recent trip to Kyoto was the Kiyomizu Temple. I was able to go but unfortunately the grounds close at 6pm, which is far too early during the warmer months to capture the sunset, as was my goal. I took what photos I...

        • David LaSpinaNice tutorial. I go through phases with my usage of split-toning. For a month I’ll use it on all my images, then I won’t touch it for a few months. Come to thing of it, I treat a lot of photo tools this way (HDR, textures, etc)

          Lovely photo too. I love Kyoto and when I first arrived in Japan I went there every few months (it’s only a 30 minute trip from Okazaki via shinkansen). At this point I haven’t visited in several years… I feel the urge to go there again when I see photos like this.ReplyCancel

          • leslieThanks! I love using split toning … I use it in some form in a large portion of my photos. I’ve sort of got a basic workflow I go through for most of my professional photos now, though it depends on the photo as to what I may or may not use of course. As for Kyoto, I loved it. The last time I went my photography skills were lacking at best, so it was a lot of fun this time to get to shoot it and feel like I could produce something worth sharing! 🙂ReplyCancel

        Atami Castle Shizuoka Prefecture

        Yesterday I had a church event down in Shizuoka Prefecture, and on the way back home took a stop by the town of Atami on the Pacific coast. It’s a beautiful little town with some fantastic scenery and places to explore. I only got there just in time for sunset (because the sunset is so...
