No I’m not in Maui now – I wish I was – but I am exploring Lightroom – Adobe’s Lightroom Classic. I just finished a class on the software – virtually of course – and decided to subscribe for a year. (A 7 day trial wasn’t enough.)
I was overwhelmed at first – everyone else in the class already used Lightroom. But the more I’ve played with it, the more I like the features. So I thought I’d resurrect some old pictures from Maui to practice on and share them with you too!
I’ll start with Haleakala – a massive dormant volcano that forms 75% of the island of Maui. The summit is 10,023 feet above sea level – with another 19,000 feet to the bottom of the ocean making it taller than Everest. It’s a fabulous landscape with great views and you’d be forgiven for thinking it was Mars.
If it was, this would be the new space station.
Next up are some Maui Beaches to lift you out of your winter doldrums. On some of them you’ll see a watermark with my name – I’m still experimenting with that.
I’ll close with some beautiful hula dancers from a a luau in Wailea who matched the colors of sunset.
I’m still learning but for now I like how easy it is to crop, edit, and resize pictures in Lightroom, as well as tagging them for easy retrieval.
That’s all for now.
