Our gear is finally here,
you've studied the basics of exposure, lighting, composition, etc. We're going to be going out and shooting images. Once you get a few keepers, you'll need to touch them up in Lightroom.
Here's a basic overview of the editing workflow:
Sort > Import photos > Sort > Edit > Sort > Export
Notice the amount of sorting you'll do. Good photographers only keep their best images. Ask yourself, "is this really a good picture?" (refer back to the photo critique guidelines we looked at while back) and if you have to justify to yourself, it probably isn't. Also, the more you sort and pare down your images, the less actual time you'll have to spend editing, and the more time you can spend shooting!
Here's a bit more detailed looked at the editing workflow we're going to follow:
Crop/straighten > adjust white balance > adjust exposure > local adjustments > artistic editing > sharpening/noise reduction > export
