A Guide to Editing a Landscape Photo

Rarely is a landscape photo finished the moment you press the shutter; almost every image requires some degree of editing, both to add your personal creative touch and to give it a polished presentation. If you are new to the genre and ready to learn, check out this fantastic video tutorial that features an experienced photographer showing you how he edits an image from start to finish using Lightroom.

Coming to you from Matt Kloskowski, this awesome video tutorial will show you the ins and outs of editing a landscape photo in Lightroom. One of the most important things to notice is how Kloskowski generally makes subtle adjustments. With the power of modern editing applications and latitude offered by newer cameras, it can be very easy to take things overboard and end up with a shot that looks overly artificial. It takes a lot of practice to build a sense for just how far to push an edit, so it is generally best to err on the side of doing less to start. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Kloskowski.
