Make your Fall Photos Pop with Lightroom

Autumn, with its amazing colors, can be an exciting time year for photographers. Everything is so beautiful.

Sometimes, though, the images we bring home don't always live up to what we saw with our eyes. For whatever reason, the brilliant colors that we were so excited about can sometimes end up looking washed out and muted in our photos.

And then there are times when our timing is off. We snap a bunch of photos, but we're a few weeks too early and the colors haven't hit their peak.

It’s disappointing. But, that doesn't have to be the end of the story. Many of your less-than-stunning fall photos can be significantly improved in just a few minutes using photo editing software. And that's especially true if you shoot in the raw format. Raw gives you more room for improvement in post processing.

To see the difference retouching can make, check out the video below. In it, Photographer Serge Ramelli demonstrates how he uses the tools of Lightroom's Develop module to make fall colors pop.
