With a little help of Lightroom
Frustrated with your pictures being colorless?
Picture this scenario. You are seeing something that you want to take a picture of and when you take the picture and see the results in your camera or computer it does not come out quite the way you wanted it to.
Then there is a solution for that. It is called post-production. It is what all professional photographers do to their pictures, to make it look even better. So you do not have to feel ashamed for using a little help from example a program called Lightroom. I want to show you a before and after pictures to demonstrate what I mean. See the examples below, you need to click on the pictures to get a better comparison:
The picture to the left was taken with the “shade” option, therefore it is more yellowish. In Lightroom you can easily adjust this to make it look more natural. It is more colorful on the picture to the right. The picture below shows a dark picture inside the forest. It is hard to get the right brightness when you take a picture. It is easy to fix in post-production.
Here is a final one that I like to share with you all. When you load a picture in the camera and watch it in the computer it can be colorless. With Lightroom you can bring out the bright colors and give the picture life again. There are many programs that can do this for your pictures for example Photoshop, Gimp (free program) and Topaz just to name a few.
I hope you have got some inspiration to work on your pictures now, it is worth it!

Pink explosion of flowers
Taken with Canon 70D and Tamron 90mm macro lens, handheld and in windy conditions.
Don’t want to bug you…
…but it is summer and it is a great time for macro.
Wherever you go you will find a insect, weather you like it or not. The bugs are easier to spot and there are more chances to take those nice macro shots.
I found a nice looking creature when I was out walking. I found a colorful orange/black striped bug called Graphosoma lineatum in Latin. It probably have several names in different languages. It was easy to work with the bug because it was completely still and staring at me. It made a good pose on that stone too. When the bug had enough it just walked away.
The picture was taken with Canon 70D and the Tamron 90mm f2.8 lens. The picture has the following setup f/11, ISO 2000 and 1/160 sec.
