This livestream was a special event to thank the first sign-ups to the Learning Community (and to test some of the technology – which didn’t work) and to start settling in to our work.

Unfortunately I missed recording the first part of the chat, where we tried unsuccessfully to decide which image to edit, and I also set the white balance. But other than that, I think everything is included here.

Next time I’ll actually read out the questions from the chat so I’m not just replying to the question – but the chat transcript is below, so you can see the questions people asked, and I also wrote the keyboard shortcuts people were asking about there too. 

Also, you can download the .tif file or a high-res jpeg file here (they’ll open in a new window).


I’ve made it a .tif file as older versions of Lightroom (or other programs?) might not be able to open the .RAW file since my camera is reasonably new – I know I had trouble as I was using a super old version of LR when I first got it. The .tif files should operate pretty much exactly as a RAW file.

And! You can upload your finished edit to the Facebook group album: “Edits Together” so we can see how you went! You don’t have to edit it like mine either – take it in whatever direction you like! 😊

You can edit this photo however suits you – either follow along, pausing the video as you go, or put your own spin on it! As you’ll see, the colours on the video are VERY desaturated so don’t worry if it looks different to yours!
