I took this photo in the afternoon sun last week. As you can see, it’s a little… well, it’s completely unusable as-is:

I thought it was a goner, but then I heard that the newest version of Lightroom comes with a special “dehaze” slider, just for stuff like this. So I downloaded it and gave it a try.

Using the new dehaze slider and a few other edits (about 5 min total editing time), I ended up with this:
Holy moly.

This is why I love Lightroom so much. If you want to see how the new slider works, check out this quick little video I made for you here:

You might be surprised — shocked, even! — to see what Lightroom can do to your photos in just a few minutes.

EVERY photo that I submit to stock agencies gets processed, first. It’s not hard to learn how — in fact, it’s quite fun.

Annnnnd we happen to have a few spots left in our Lightroom for Starters online class, coming up this month, here.

In the meantime, keep shooting and uploading new photos for the Summer Sprints!

A big congratulations to Theresa St John who wrote in to say: So, something new in the photography scene for me….. Onto my 3rd (PAID!) architectural shoot – real estate sales. I am working with a local real estate agent and am super excited about it. Had my first shoot about a month ago, next one this Wednesday morning and then another at the end of the month. Wicked cool, getting my name out there.
