Grey Skies Are Gonna Clear Up . . . with a few adjustments in Photoshop and Lightroom


While going through some files looking for fisheye photos, I came across a picture I took at Machu Picchu on a very overcast and drab day, which is often the case in this awesome setting. The original image is below.


As always, I envisioned the end result, which is something that I recommend to all my workshop students.

With a few enhancements, I was able to turn the drab shot into a more fab shot.

The point of this post: don't let the weather get you down when you are shooting. In many cases, you can create a dramatic image from your Raw file when using Lighroom and Photoshop.

Speaking of fish-eye lens, check out this article I wrote: Can 1mm Make a Difference?

Here are the links to the 14mm and 15mm lenses I use:



Explore the light,
