I Learned 5-5-11

I learned that there is so much about Lightroom I didn’t know! I learned some awesome organizing skills as well as how to improve my skin tones and knock out a stella black and white! I am taking the Lightroom 101 workshop through Clickin’ Moms! There is so much more to learn and actually soak in…I LOVE IT!!! Here is one of my photos I edited in the HSL part of LR. This was the first time I had played with that area. I know you have seen this picture before but it’s a different edit and I think I like it better!

Just for you Trisha :O) I realize it isn’t a huge difference but I like how I was able to keep the blue in the sky. Looks a little more realistic.

**You can post anything you have learned over the past two weeks since we had our contest last week.**

Now it’s your turn. What did you learn this week?? You know the old saying “You learn something new everyday!” Take pictures of it and share with us!! Some weeks you may learn a photography skill and want critiques. GREAT!! Share and ask for them! If you didn’t learn a new photography skill but something about yourself or life, that is great too! Post a picture and tell us what you learned. Can’t wait to see your pictures and find out what you learned!!

As always
1. Post one photo and tell us what you learned.
2. Link your permalink, not your blog address, check out the I Learned Tab if you need help with this.
3. Attach our button to your post
4. Ask for critiques if you want them and post your settings
5. Leave a comment on 5 other posts
6. Open Thursday 8am – Sunday 8am (Japan time) or Wednesday 6pm – Saturday 6pm (EST)

    Love the photos! My learning this week has been quite entertaining to say the least… trying to do the Selfie Photo Jump challenge. I’ll link up when I get the photos on my site. ;) lol

    Wow, gorgeous! Love the edit.. makes the sky look fabulous! Nice job! :)

    subtle, but I can def. see a difference in the sky. i do like how it shows up more clearly around gazebo.

  • I learned that it’s not scary to ask for helpful critiques of my photography; in fact, a few things were pointed out to me that were really helpful and none of it was about my photography techniques or style (which I think are personal). I will continue to ask for feedback as often as possible.
