Here’s How to Edit Stunning Sunset Photos in Lightroom (Video Tutorial)

Lucy Martin is one of our favorite YouTube-based educators for Photoshop and Lightroom tutorials. (Other than, of course, Shutterbug’s own Scott Kelby.) In the below video, Martin offers her tips on editing one of the most common types of photos we see shared on Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites: sunset photos.

And yes, because sunset photos are so ubiquitous in our social media world, a lot of them can end up looking the same. Not so though if you heed Martin’s advice in the below video.

“I’m going to take you through my exact workflow when editing sunset photos,” Martin says in her “Edit with Me Monday” show on YouTube. “These are the things I love to do and I think make an incredible edit.”

Martin then walks you through her step-by-step process for editing a particular sunset photo in Lightroom. We think you’ll agree that the finished image is a heck of a lot more eye-catching than what she started with. Or, as Martin puts it: “We’re gonna make it look super, super awesome.”
