Lightroom-Before and Afters

I am just starting to get really into photography. Or maybe I should say I am getting really into understanding photography.  I truly love it.  I thought I would put my big girl pants on and download Lightroom and learn it. I never purchased Photoshop because I was nervous of the learning curve.  It seemed, from reading reviews that Lightroom was pretty user friendly.   I took the plunge. LOVE it!
I took a Clean and Creative Editing Workshop from Pretty Presets for Lightroom, that I found through Facebook.  I loved that I could do it on my own time and it was $25. Sold.  Three brushes also came with the workshop that I could use while editing in Lightroom.

Just a few tweaks and I love it. (Actually used a free preset!) Took me 30 seconds to edit this. Even better.  I am working on learning my camera (actually reading the manual), staying on manual, and shooting in RAW.  Learning, learning, learning.

Happy Editing!!!
