Lightroom Practice

Updated LR ROM Pic (2 of 1)

Lightroom practice. Properly ran it through LR this time using my own B&W preset which I created for use with portraits. Did some minor spot clarity adjustments on the windows and ROM sign to make them clearer. Proper cropping this time. I think it looks a little straighter.

I did a bunch of LR tutorials and guess what? I have a bad memory. Or at the very least I need to keep this information on hand so I can refer to it when I need it, which is not unexpected at this stage of the game.

Nikon D3400 – F-stop: f/5.6 – Exposure time: 1/30 sec – ISO: 6400 – Focal length: 29mm – Max aperture: 4.1

Photography Practice

IMG_20180719_151055_278

Photography practice. I wasn’t sure I’d have anything worth posting this early in the process of learning photography. I’ve been advised that the first 10,000 photos I take will be crap, however this one came out okay. I think

The horizon line is a little off, but I was able to hide that by taking the leaning lamp post out of the frame. One mistake I made was retouching this within Instagram itself, which I was advised not to do. It looks good when viewing it on IG through a mobile device, but looks grainy through a laptop and especially when compared to the original (which is below for comparison’s sake). I definitely won’t do that again.

_DSC0173I definitely like the Black and White photos, so will explore that some more. One of the things that I’ve realised I’m missing is having someone to critique my work. I can’t do this in isolation and need the feedback. So, that’s a problem I’ll have to solve in the short term and as I move forward.

The equipment I used plus settings are listed below:
