Oregon Coast Workshop Photos and Lightroom Processin
I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. I got to spend some quality time on the beach with my family which was great since I just returned from the Oregon Coast workshop I taught over the weekend. Speaking of, I wanted to share some photos I took during the workshop along with the Lightroom settings. I saw quite a few “wow” moments from the participants this weekend at the power of what Lightroom (and only a few sliders) can do.
Before we get to that though, I want to say a big thanks to everyone who came to the workshop. We had a lot of good laughs, yawns (we were up early) and just an overall great time. Unfortunately I was probably the cause of a few laughs – not because of my sense of humor but because I happened to step into about 2 feet of water on the beach in front of half the group Anyway, thanks everyone – you guys were great!
OK, on to the photos (make sure you click them to see a larger version):
Here’s the final images. I’ve included screen captures below each photo to show the Basic panel settings. That’s where 90% of all the work was done. The only other changes made to the photos were sharpening using the Detail panel and vignetting using the Effects panel in Lightroom 3 Beta2 (I used the Highlight Priority setting on all of them). I also used the Adjustment Brush to darken the waterfall in the Multnomah Falls photo but that’s the only place the brush was used.
As always, I’m interested to hear your comments and please let me know your favorites. After looking at them so many times I always find it hard to pick the 2 that I’m going to have printed large so lemme know
