In Post: Live Edit! #197

I'm back with another unscripted post processing session. In another super-long video, I use Lightroom, ON1 Photo RAW and Aurora HDR to work on a photo from Arch Rock Overlook in Oregon. Different tools have different strengths and I pick and choose them to get the look I’m after.

Since this is a *long* video, here’s a few points of interest so you can pick and choose what’s interesting to you.
