In this week Edit of the Week(EOTW), we travel to Amsterdam to wonder the canals and visit some of the iconic spots at blue hour. The trick I teach in this edit is how to straighten buildings in LightRoom with the use of the Lens correction panel and to take it one step further by doing it with the Manual settings. So let’s give a little back story on this image. It was our last night in Amsterdam and I have not gotten the iconic image of the canal at night. You must be thinking right now “is it that hard to get a great night shot of the canals in Amsterdam?” and the answer is no but yes….LOL you can go to any canal crossing at night and walk away with a wonderful image but I wanted to get a shot with the canal, the lights on the bridge, and the buildings all in one. Most of the canals don’t have the row of lights on the arch ways so you have to do a little bit of searching to find the right spot. Once I found the spot, It was down to me just waiting for my turn to take this image cause of 2 other photographers had already taken up space along the railing. So now you know how this image came about. let’s edit it!
