A Game-Changing Lightroom Hack For Better Photos
Our wedding season hasn’t officially started for us yet, so it’s been a good time to soak in as much education as we can! We learned this trick (that may be completely obvious to most photographers!) just last week from one of our favorite husband and wife teams – Amy&Jordan (aren’t they the sweetest?!), and it’s so cool to see how much of an effect it’s had on our images already.
So what is this game changer?!
When editing in Lightroom, there are several editing options on the right hand side of the screen. This game changer is located in the “Lens Corrections” box highlighted in red below. Truth be told, I had never ever used this editing box until last week!
Here’s a closer look! The game changer is the second box called “Enable Profile Corrections.” In order for the correction to take place, you’ll need to select the Make/Model/Profile of the lens/body you use when you shoot!
What does “Enabling Profile Corrections” actually do?
To really see the transformation, after you’ve checked the box, hit the backslash button (right under the delete/backspace key on a MAC) to see the difference of the before and after! In some images, the change will be very subtle, but in others it will be such a big game changer!
