My day has been filled with learning! I discovered new ways to make life easier at work and I discovered another wonderful feature of Lightroom. I decided to go with another lily pad photo from the same shoot as the photo I shared yesterday. I wanted to play around with black and white as I had so much fun with my first black and white conversion last week. When I first started the conversion though, it just seemed to be missing something as the focal point disappeared without the color on the flower. This presented the dilemma of wanting to do something I had no idea how to do. I decided to turn to Google and see if I could find out how to use Lightroom to accomplish the task of leaving the flower colored and turning everything else black and white. I found a simple tutorial on Digital Photography School on the first link I tried! Highlight Color Effect in Lightroom - 5 Easy Steps is an easy to follow tutorial that allowed me to accomplish exactly what I wanted :o). I love learning new things!
