Editing Techniques Used: Lightroom Tips

What I Learned: May has been a difficult month in terms of sticking to my goals with all the other things I have going on. I have faltered and felt guilty about that, but I have also felt proud that I start again. In terms of editing I focused on zeroing out my photos before editing. I shoot in RAW and until now I really didn't understand the difference when it comes to editing. I started out with applying the "Zeroed" Lightroom preset to each photo before editing and found that editing was just easier and I had more control over my images. I then found that you can apply that preset when you import your images by choosing it on the left hand side of the import window. I feel like this has truly changed my editing!
