One of the great things about digital photography is how easy it is to take lots and lots of photographs.
But there is a downside to this and that’s image overload! Trying to store and organize so making photos can be overwhelming.
Lightroom’s Library module can help with this.
Lightroom contains all of the tools and elements that you need to manage and organize your photo collection.
Learning how to use these tools and how to create an organization structure that works for you can make your photography life so much easier. Most importantly, it can help you find images that you’re looking for when you need them. Because there’s nothing more frustrating than not being able to find that one photo you absolutely need at that moment when you absolutely need it.
In the aptly named video, “Cleaning Up Your Mess in Lightroom", Tim Grey shows us the ins and out of organizing a photo collection in Lightroom. And he starts at the very (important) beginning, explaining the basics of how the software works. It’s an important lesson and once you get a handle on those basics, an organized, managed and easy to use image catalog is just around the corner.

It's that time of year again! Time for holiday fun and family gatherings.
And it's a great time to capture your family in a group portrait.
Here are some tips for shooting a great group photo:
One of the biggest new enhancements in the latest version of both Lightroom and ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) is the addition of Luminance and Color range masking.
Range masking allows you to limit the area of your image that is affected by local adjustments based on a range of colors or tones within your image. And, best of all, the masking is totally non-destructive and re-editable.
All images tell a story. But it isn't always the story we want to tell.
Selective focus is a simple but powerful technique that can help you control the narrative by managing which part of your image stands out and which part doesn't. And with that, the story behind your images becomes clearer.
