Enter Lightroom 3
Last week at our Hudson River Photography Workshops, Photoshop Lightroom 2 rocked the house.
This week, Adobe announced Photoshop Lightroom 3 BETA. Lots of cool features, as you'll see on the Adobe Labs site. For me, the best feature: Getting the best from ever shot.
I took this shot of the New Croton Dam last week on our Workshop with my Canon 5D Mark II. The fog was amazing. I had not seen it before - and I have lived here for 25 years. It was also snowing and freezing!
The dam was built in 1906, so I thought the Creative - Sepia preset in Lightroom was appropriate.
Tip: Take the color out of a scene, and you remove some of the reality. Remove some of the reality, and a picture becomes more artistic.
Download Lightroom 3 BETA.. and let the games begin! Great fun - and great creative enhancements await....

P.S. Yes! The world famous Julieanne Kost (dressed in all black, of course) is here at the show talking about all the cool features of Lightroom 3.
