How not to edit photos in Lightroom

Using Adobe Lightroom allows you to edit your photos in all manner of ways. I’ve been using it for over ten years, and quickly stopped using Photoshop for all but the most arduous tasks. However, the range of available options can quickly become overwhelming, leading you to over-do it and produce photos which look unexpectedly artificial. It’s easy to get lost in what you’re trying to achieve, simply because of the range of adjustments available.

James Popsys has published the video above and it’s one of the simplest, yet useful, guides I’ve come across on how to create better, less artificial images. The video lasts less than seven minutes and yet has given me a couple of great tips. Take a look if you get “lost” when editing your RAW-format photos.
