At the moment I have a really strong feeling that I want to shoot some coastal scenes. I haven’t been getting out very much at all with my camera as there have been too many other things that I need to do that unfortunately don’t relate to photography. The best I can do is content myself with looking back over past images and choosing some to reprocess.
I then started to process the image above in Lightroom which is where I came across a rather interesting feature that I think is new in Lightroom v6. At least I don’t recall it in an earlier version. When using tools such as the Gradient Filter or Radial Filter a mask is automatically created. There is now a collection of brushes within these tools that allow you to refine the masks. Experimenting with a Radial Filter I was able to make the selective adjustments to blur irregular areas of the image. I’m going to investigate this further and will probably pull together a short piece about it.
Have a great weekend everyone.
