My FAVORITE new toy

I am not the greatest photographer.  I recently invested in Adobe Photoshop Lightoom 2 and now my pictures look very professional.  The premise behind Lightroom is by using 'presets' you are able to enhance the lighting of your digital photo.  You also have the option to organize digital images to make them more accessible, you are able to process your photos quickly, and then able to share your edited photos through slide shows, prints and web galleries.  Lightroom allows you to work with your images right from the start when you import the images from your memory card.  You are able to edit the good, delete the bad, group your pics into categories and print the photos you want.  The print module has the ability to print contact sheets.  This feature is one of my favorites.  Alot of Pictures on one sheet makes a nice gift or keepsake.


  Over Labor Day weekend, we spent an afternoon out at the BUCKWOODS enjoying the beauty of the season.  Gabe and I were able to steal away on the four - wheeler for a few hours so I could take pictures of the scenery.  This RED MAPLE had already started to change.  In this photo, I am trying to catch the essence of the breath taking beauty of the leaves and season.  The picture by itself wasn't special.  Once I used Lightroom to enhance the photo, the beauty was able to shine through.
