A Day in the Life

DSCF3728-2-HDR-2The other day, I had my camera out and caught a glimpse of some approaching storm clouds at sunset. They weren’t really big, but we were expecting rain that evening. I took several random shots that day and this one just happens to be my favorite. I’m still in that random shot photography stage and I haven’t found my niche yet, but I will eventually. I think it’s important during my photography journey to figure this out even though it may take a while. ¬†For now though, I’ll stick to the random shots. One of the biggest things I struggle with so far is losing details in my pictures and I’ve been learning to correct this by using my histogram more frequently. I have learned a lot from it in Adobe Lightroom as well. The arrows to the right and left of the histogram in Lightroom will allow you to correct the blown highlights and blacks in your photographs which makes for better editing.
