Sometimes your photos seem a little dull and need some life. Fortunately, Lightroom makes it possible to take a photo with dull colors and make it pop. In this tutorial we’ll look at a few simple steps that you can do to bring your photos to life.
Converting a color image to black and white is very easy with the help of Photoshop and/or Lightroom, but a simple conversion will only change your color image to a greyscale image and may not give it the best results.

There is a lot of work that goes into capturing amazing landscape photos. You’ll need to scout locations to find the best spots, plan your shots so you can be there in the best light and weather, and of course you’ll need to understand the technical details of exposure. But don’t forget about post processing. Even the best photos will need some work if you are shooting in RAW format. Unfortunately, more time spent editing your photos means less time out in the field actually taking photos.
