My New "Toy"...

Cancun is almost here and I am working harder than ever! I am finishing up my last Business LEAP class as well as wrapping up some photography projects that need to be done before we take off.
I recently got a new toy. It is a editing program called Lightroom 2. I am still learning how to use it, but here are some of the first fruits of it's labor...just a few of my favorites from the Bar Mitzvah I shot a few weeks ago...
These centerpieces were done by my friend Sheena, of the Invisible Hostess. I think she did a magnificent job, don't you?



I think this is my favorite, if I had to choose just one...








I'm still learning how to fully utilize all of the functions of Lightroom 2, but really enjoying the simple things like the vignetting and watermark for now.
For the photographers out there that use Lightroom, what is your favorite feature, or hidden shortcut that you can't live without?
(Or, maybe you can tell me how to get rid of the grey background?? :) Not sure how I did that one?)

mmm... lightroom. (I just sighed out loud - since it's my favorite) It will truly allow you to grow!

Great shots and YAY lightroom! That grey border IS very weird. Did you export your photos as jpg's?

Cool lightroom tricks...when you are editting a single photo, press L, then press it again. i love that. i also love the flagging tools. it really helps in the editting process. I'll explain more when I see you. :) or maybe you've already discovered a good method.

Nice work, though. Keep it up!
