Why Lightroom?

I recently saw a blog post (from a totally unrelated industry) about one simple word – Why? The writer encouraged people to think about why we do things. It got me thinking about Lightroom. I teach it to so many people. I’m excited about it. I think using it over Bridge and Adobe Camera Raw (for photographers that is) is the right thing to do. But why?

Friday Tip – Cool Cropping

Today I’ve got a great tip for you that, truth be told, isn’t really mine. Yep, I’m stealing tips these days. It’s a problem I’ve had that really dates back to my childhood years Now it’s back and I find myself stealing a tip from Daryl Naumann.
