Hey it’s Craig from Unleashed Education here, thanks for tuning in to this Editing Toolbox video. In these videos, we focus on sharing a quick tip, trick or technique to help you improve your pet photography editing.

In this video, I’m going to show you how you can quickly change the season in Lightroom. This is quite a common technique but the key to success in doing this, is that you are just making subtle changes.

This image was taken just at the very beginning of autumn so there were quite a few fallen leaves, even though the trees were mostly still green. So making some changes to the greens will still be believable, whereas, if I was going to transform this into a frosty winter scene for example, it would not be very believable as I’d be working against what the scene provides already.
