Photo Critique – Episode 22

by Anthony Morganti

 

If you’re reading this in your email, click here for the video.

In this Photo Critique – Episode 22, I critique the work of Steve Ellis.

This critique is going to be a bit different than the previous episodes in that Steve sent me some RAW images. The main point of this critique is that I’m going to demonstrate how you can develop an image to enhance that image’s strong points while diminishing it’s weaker aspects.

If You’re New To Lightroom Presets

Presets are very popular in Lightroom and we, as photographers, can save a lot of time in our post processing utilizing a preset. Also, with Lightroom, when we find that we’re processing our images the same way time after time, we can create our own preset.
