Cutting through the Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon detail

OK, by saying “cutting through”, I suppose I should have posted an image that at least had the Colorado River in it, since it’s actually the river that cuts through the Grand Canyon. I meant a more photographer-literal cutting through. This is the first batch of personal images where I am using Lightroom (v.2) instead of the Photoshop & Adobe Camera Raw to process the images. So for me, this is all about learning the Lightroom program, especially what I like & don’t like. I feel like I am trying to plow my way through a feels of weeds using a weed-hacker. …. Slow & Steady.

As for the photo above, it seems that every time I’ve been to the Grand Canyon, about half of my photos are these type of landscape ‘details’, where the concentration and interest for me is on the playful border between light, land, and shadow.

More to come later. But for now, I hope you enjoy this.

    I have had LR2 since last year and still haven’t scratched the surface. At this point I just process the images and do nothing else. I haven’t even made use of the GND filter feature. And for the first time batch processed 57 TIFF’s for a panoramic the other day.

    I think you will find that LR will be come an important in your work-flow and with the volume of your work the database capability should be a plus! The ability to set up presets and being able to copy develop settings is a big time saver!
