Editing the sky in Lightroom

One of the biggest challenges in photography is to balance exposure across the land and sky. Skies are typically much brighter than land, so if you expose for the land the sky will look too bright, and if you expose for the sky the land will be too dark.

As long as you shoot your images in RAW, then you can easily pull back some detail and color into your sky.

In this video I will show you one easy way to enhance the sky in your images. Enjoy!
