Lightroom's the import, the tweak, generic color changes like a little bit of the HSL, hue, saturation and luminance that kind of stuff, white balance. And then Photoshop is more like it's time to swap some faces. Put in a new sun or the intense stuff because sometimes be very noticeable or subtle details that just really help make that image just a lot nicer.

Now there's two schools of thought with this. I don't think there's a right or wrong answer. A lot of people, the purists if you will are like,

"No, if you're using Photoshop and you're adding birds to an image, that's manipulation, that's not photography."

And I don't think there's a right or wrong answer to that. For me, they're all just tools at my disposal to use and have fun with to get the best type of art that I want to present to the world. And it's my art, they're my images and I do what I want to them.

So if I think it looks good, it's going in. Do whatever you want. If you're one of the people who are like,

"Don't ever add anything", then don't, don't ever add anything and just carry on. Because it doesn't matter. Because believe it or not, a lot of people don't edit their photos. And if they do edit their photos, all they're really doing sometimes is adjusting the brightness a little bit of contrast then they throw a sepia filter on there.

But you'll be surprised the amount of people who send me iPhone shots and then I'll run it through SnapC and a bunch of stuff real fast and shoot it back which is probably super obnoxious to everybody. And then they'll be like, "wow! How did you get it to look so good?"

I say, "I just edited it. I just edited the photo. That is all I did."

Let's import some photos into Lightroom, start editing them with Lightroom presets and then we'll get those over to Photoshop and tweak them a little bit more. Time for some laptop club. I've imported a photo from the Italian Dolomites, which is just a fancy way of saying The Alps. The Italian Alps.

Now I didn't have this on a tripod, this was just hand held. I snapped it real quick. But it's a good example of me trying to expose it as best as I could in camera before getting it into post which means I got a little more play with it when I'm editing.

You'll notice my grid is very colorful at the moment so I really dig the blues in this because it makes it feel cold. It makes it feel like it was on the day that I was there which was freezing.
