Before & After Photo Editing – Lightroom Mobile

In March we went to New Orleans and while walking down the street we were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon Doreen Ketchens “the clarinet queen” and band entertaining a crowd in the street with their dixieland music. Her performance was one of the highlights of our visit! Unbeknownst to us, we soon came to learn she is famous!!

When taking photos in the street it is very hard to capture the excitement of what you are experiencing in the moment. I decided I wanted to try to capture the musical experience somehow. Doreen plays the clarinet like I have never heard someone play it before so that became the focus for my photo editing.

Adobe Lightroom Mobile was used to edit this photo.

Photography-Before & After-Luminar 4 & Topaz Studio 2

Before – f/5.6; ISO-1600; 1/3200 sec; 171mm
After – Luminar 4
After Luminar 4 – Topaz Studio 2

This photograph was taken at Arlington Park Racetrack in Arlington Heights, IL. It has been a while since I have used Luminar 4 to process a photo. After using Lightroom and Photoshop for years, it is very hard to switch to a new program. Luminar offers many tools, sky enhancements (as you can see above), and it still allows you to work in layers which is a must for me! Taking it a step further, I brought the image into Topaz Studio 2 to further process. Topaz Studio 2 offers many photo editing tools along with many artistic presets that you can tweak to your liking. Thought I would share my results.

It’s been a while since I have done photo editing on my tablet. Thought this photo would be a good test revisiting the Adobe Lightroom app. Was pleasantly surprised.
