To get a free trial of Adobe Lightroom click here – Follow First Man Photography for the latest updates: Instagram – Facebook – Twitter – Medium – Google+ – This video has come about thanks to the suggestion of a valued subscriber who asked me to go through the post processing of some images. Happy to oblige I went through the edit of one of my recent shots taken whilst in Glenelg on the West Coast of Scotland. Since we have been on a landscape theme recently I thought some landscape photography editing would be a good place to start. With the conditions I was faced with on the day, the scene immediately screamed black and white. I went ahead and shot a four minute long exposure, planning to turn the image into a fine art landscape photograph. Long exposure lends itself very well to fine art photography. The fine art landscape editing is done purely in Adobe Lightroom although the final touch is added using Silver Efex form Google’s Nik Collection. This final step does not feature in the video as I will be creating future tutorials covering this. The image used was shot in raw. We go through all the steps and sliders used in Lightroom to post process the image and complete our fine art landscape edit. During the post processing we use a software version of the ND grad filter and use this to bring out some detail and drama from the sky. This is a very effective landscape photography editing tool and is starting to render the physical version of this filter useless. See my recent video discussing camera filters. If you […]

    Hi Adam, enjoyed your tutorial and have subscribed. I have Nik collection and I was more interested in the blue tone you gave your photo which you don't go into. May I guess that you used silver effects pro with some Seleium tint (I think it's called that)? It looks beautiful.

    Very good, again. I like Lightroom a lot – it seems flexible and i like the /non destructive' aspect to editing – you can always go back. But Lightroom can do a lot, and I'm still learning more.

    BTW, if you do any further videos on editing, including photoshop, (which I'd welcome) I'd find it useful if you kept a distinction between PS and PS elements – due to the cost, I think many enthusiasts will have the latter, which does much, but not all, that the full PS does. I'm on PS elements 14, myself.

    Hi Adam what's the difference between Lightroom and photoshop. Or is it all the same thing. When I googled Lightroom for purchasing it came up "Adobe Photoshop-light room.
