Make the Image – Red Butter Lettuce
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
Here is a simple image – fresh red butter lettuce in a stainless steel colander. The straight out of camera (SOOC) image is not bad but, like most SOOC images, it can be better. In this particular image, for example, I find the reflection of the table in the colander to be distracting. Using the gradient tool in Lightroom, I was able to remove it by simply lowering the saturation. Check out the video below for my full post-processing workflow on this image.
