Have you ever heard the phrase: Everything but the kitchen sink? This photo made me think: Everything and the kitchen sink. (Except it’s a bathroom sink. But it’s a sink so I hope you’ll spot me the flexibility in phrasing.)
I love the randomness of this collection. Another of my favorites from my outing to Philomath on Friday, I had much success finding photoographs along the outside of the Architectural Salvage store. I’ll have to go back and visit when it’s open sometime, I bet there are even more opportunities for random goodness to photograph inside.
All of the photos of this series have been edited using Lightroom 3, I’m now using Lightroom exclusively for my editing to learn the software. I’ve got my Scott Kelby book open on my lap and I’m flipping back and forth as I have questions. I’m learning a ton.
I am in love. Absolute, and total love, with Lightroom. What a fantastic piece of software for editing and organizing photos. It’s intuitive and powerful, and I’ve been in desperate need of the organization piece. I’m getting lost in all of the editing possibilities, and it’s just plain fun. I’m not sure why a photographer would bother with Photoshop! (OK, not totally true, I know I will still use Photoshop Elements for layers, but I’m enamored at the moment so I’m allowing myself to be dramatic.)
Here are a couple of videos I’ve watched that help explain why you would use one or the other, via Kent Weakley and Adorama TV. (The Adorama TV video is the one I watched first, and it helped me decide to go with Lightroom as my next software, but Kent’s is a nice overview and is shorter.) You can substitute “Photoshop Elements” for “Photoshop” in any of these conversations, both integrate with Lightroom the same way, I’ve found. How awesome is that?
Maybe, just maybe, with the combo of Lightroom and Photoshop Elements, I’ve discovered I have everything and the kitchen sink. I’m one happy gal.
