The Best way to edit your Landscape photography using Lightroom Classic Software

Course Overview

It is well understood that proper editing can take your landscape images from good to great. But how? Many photographers use the basic panel and then stop. But there is much more that can accomplished.

From altering the way color manifests through the calibration panel, to altering to colors in HSL, to masking the sky, to reinforcing the direction of light, to brushing in a dramatic sky, to sharpening key components of your image, you can achieve wonders with a few tools in Lightroom. In this class we will spend two hours going through some best practices for creating landscape masterpieces.
