If you want to start editing your photos in Lightroom or Photoshop, here are some tips:
– Take RAW images and not JPEG
– Start playing around with standard adjustments such as temperature, tone, exposure, contrast, light, white/black, lights/shadows, full/powerful, and clear. These changes are already making a huge difference in your photos.
– Get a workflow that you feel comfortable with – for me I start with LR with standard fixes, color correction, and basic adjustments, and then introduce you to PS for some adjustments (for example I like working with different layers).
– Learn to use integrated methods/methods of integration in PS and how to apply the mask.
– You can use layers and combine methods in many different ways. You can add more in-depth photos – just try it and you will have fun exploring new ways to create your photo style.
– Here is an example: You have a picture of a beautiful place and you are facing a common problem: Either the sky is very light or the skin itself is very dark. So what you can do is the following – create a visual copy in Lightroom. Now you have the same picture twice. Arrange one version for the sky as you wish and do the same for another version with just the difference you focus on the scale itself. You are now importing both versions into Photoshop into one project. You now have 2 layers. Layer 1: “Scale” and Layer 2: “Sky” – add a mask to Layer 2 and clear the darkest part (you can also use a gradient with a smooth transition). Now you have a bright sky AND a bright scape.
