At what seems like the last possible moment, a friend from work calls me to arrange a photo shoot of her and her dog before the day is over. Willingly I told her I’d do it, and to meet me down on the beach behind my house. What I didn’t realize, (mostly because I had been sleeping all day!) is that the sun was already low on the horizon, and it might be too late by the time she arrived! She arrived just in time to get a few good shots, but I slowly began fighting the lack of lighting on a black dog! The sky was still quite bright, but the sunlight wasn’t very strong for subject lighting. I feared they wouldn’t come out.
Drive home, Opened up Lightroom. Ran some curves, ran the recovery feature, and amazing! They came out almost perfect!!! Aside from a little grain from the ISO, there was no clipping at all! Everyday this program never ceases to amaze me! I don’t even see the need for regular Photoshop anymore! Lightroom saves the day!
