Using the New Lightroom
I have a love/hate relationship with Lightroom. It’s more of the latter, really, and not enough of the former. But, I do like how they moved the Dehaze tool upwards. I use it quite a bit more now! Today’s video for passport members shows the best-use-case scenarios for it.
Now that the Dehaze tool has bubbled up to the top, I’ve been experimenting with it more and more. In this video, you can see how it works SOMETIMES with these rather hazy photos from Hong Kong. Well, in some cases, it is amazing. In others, it doesn’t look so good.
Daily Photo – Hong Kong Without the Haze
Of the successful de-hazing shots from Hong Kong, this is one of my favorites. I never thought I would be such a fan of government housing, but these buildings do make for a great tableau! I left a little bit of haze in there because I think it helps to add a sense of depth to the image. I had to zoom in there close to see what was happening on that sports field. At first, I thought it was baseball… but baseball is not popular in China (it is in Japan). It’s two soccer fields, or football as they call it in most of the world.
