Like a lot of photographers, I use Adobe’s Lightroom to process my photos. I’ve found the interface to be straightforward and am able to produce some pretty good results. The vast majority of the time, I use Lightroom to improve a photo, especially when working on a set of client photos. The various improvements can be anything from bumping up the exposure on a dark shot to removing some unsightly background elements.
That being said, Lightroom can also be a pretty fun playground in which to mess around with my shots. I recently sat down and spent some time playing with some of my older photos to see what sorts of fun things I could come up with.
