From Sept. 17-23, 2007, photographers all across America will be submitting their photos to the latest project from the “A Day in the Life…” folks. The project is called America at Home, a Closeup of How We Live. Each day you get a different shooting assignment. The idea is to document the home lives and environments of Americans all over the country for the next 7 days. (Actually it’s only 6 now because I missed the first day—sorry.)
Before you upload your images on their easy-to-use website, don’t forget to fine tune them with Lightroom and/or Photoshop. The before and after image shown above was cropped and color-corrected in Lightroom. For some great tutorials on how to adjust your raw images, see Katrin Eismann’s video on Editing Multiple Images with Camera Raw, or George Jardine’s video on Finding your best photos using Compare and Quick Develop in Lightroom.
