I do love Adobe Lightroom’s “Develop” module! This image of Ngoni was processed in Lightroom and Photoshop. The Photoshop edits were fairly minimal, and should probably have been done in Lightroom too… this would no doubt have speeded up the editing. The most substantive changes (from cropping to colour HSL settings, clarity, saturation, etc.) were all done in Lightroom, and I really like the end result: I think it almost looks like a pencil drawing. Lightroom makes this kind of processing so fast and simple, I would recommend it for every photographer.
Ngoni is actually standing in front of a door here; I’ll be putting up a gallery of images of our shoot together fairly soon, but for now, this image on RedBubble shows the context.
