Nubble Lighthouse Magic Hour || Lightroom Only

Occasionally I like to showcase the power of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom by processing one of my images using only Lightroom. Seeing as I haven’t done such a post in a while, I thought it was about time to do another! This image comes from the Nubble Light (aka Cape Neddick Lighthouse) in York, Maine. I wasn’t intending to visit this location on this particular day – I happened to have a meeting not far away...

Autumn On Lake Haruna || Lightroom Only

A couple of weeks ago I took a visit to Lake Haruna in Gunma Prefecture with my friend Anthony Wood. We were shown around by an older gentleman who is a friend through church – he grew up in the area, so he knows a lot of the best places to photograph. It’s always nice to have a connection with a local when it comes to photography!¬†For lunch we ate at a restaurant in a...
