Want to know a secret about editing landscape photos?

Getting beautiful-looking landscape photos is A LOT easier than you may think. So many of the editing courses and YouTube videos out there make it seem like you have to earn a Ph.D. in Photo Editing by overcomplicating everything (hello, Luminosity Masks).

It's not that these techniques aren't without merit... it's just that the vast majority of photographers, MYSELF INCLUDED, can get amazing results just by using Lightroom (and a bit of Photoshop).

I created Lightroom Landscapes to show you exactly how I edit my landscape photos without any unnecessary hoops or overcomplicated techniques. When you complete this course, you'll have everything you need to develop your own post-processing workflow and get beautifully edited landscape photos. Check out the examples below that illustrate the editing style that you'll learn in Lightroom Landscapes.
