Enlightened on Lightroom / by Jared Shoemaker

Just a disclaimer this post will be pretty short. I am pretty proficient with photoshop and Illustrator because those are the two main programs I used and worked with during my two years at my career center in high school. I am not an expert by any means and I am constantly learning new things on them. So, when I started using Lightroom you can imagine how lost I was; my tools were not there and there were new buttons and slides to play with. It was overwhelming. Do not be intimidated by this, After tinkering around for a couple hours and looking up some tips YouTube I quickly picked up on how to quickly edit pictures in this Program. One of the tutorials, was how to edit like Brandon Woelful, which I will post a link to down at the bottom of this post as the source. During my experience I picked up that Lightroom is more for pumping out a lot of edits very quickly whereas Photoshop is for editing small details and putting time into pictures. Although, I could be wrong on this. My biggest piece of advice would be just dive right into it, the best way to learn is by doing.
