#Lr_Weather photo by @neilkryszak || There was an intense lightning storm in LA last spring, so I set my camera tripod up facing the skyline from my bedroom window. The storm moved away, I thought I missed it. I left everything set up and went to sleep until I woke up around 2 am to even more intense thunder and lightning.​⁠ •​⁠ Everything was good to go, so I jumped out of bed and hit the shutter while the entire skyline filled with lightning at once. It was incredible to witness and made for a really satisfying capture.​⁠ at Los Angeles, California

#Lr_Weather photo by @nick_ulivieri || I set up my gear and watched as towering clouds incessantly lit up over the south suburbs on Friday night. Instead of shooting wide, I zoomed in for some close-ups. I loved how the serpentine bolts were illuminating the textures formed by the rolling clouds. At 10 miles away, it was far enough to demonstrate its scale and strong enough to provide constant lightning. Most importantly, the air was free of clouds, rain, and humidity, so my view of the action was crystal clear. ​⁠ ⁠ •​⁠ ⁠ A few hours later, I ventured back out after midnight to catch the second, more powerful storm as it directly hit Chicago. Unfortunately, not a single cloud-to-antenna bolt dropped from the sky. I didn't get the shots I wanted but still came away with a couple of cool, moody frames of the skyline backlit by cloud flashes. All told, it was worth the sleep deprivation. at Chicago, Illinois

#Lr_Weather photo by @danielschrammfotografie || My girlfriend and I were on our way to the summit when a very strong storm surprised us. The plan to stay on the summit wasn't possible and we urgently needed to find shelter.​⁠ •​⁠ After a very hectic and intense hike, we found shelter in a hut, where we stayed overnight. After the storm was over, the sun broke through the clouds and produced this incredible light and atmosphere. at Austria

Photos by @aundre || Hey there, it's @aundre, your friendly neighborhood portrait photographer. I am doing a little takeover of the @Lightroom feed to share some of my recent work with @thenorthface about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. They invited me, @monicagreatgal, @nathanzed, @juliansley, @maiareillyw and the badass @kitdski to go to the refuge and see its vastness firsthand.​⁠⠀ •​⁠⠀ Let me tell you, it was one hell of an introduction: from this being my first time this far from home, to camping in one of the most remote places in the United States, to listening to the Hula-Hula River run and watching caribou study us from afar. If we sat still for long enough, animals would just walk by our campground. We were visitors in their home.​⁠⠀ •​⁠⠀ Want to learn more? Head over to my page (@aundre) to see more. Be well. #neverstopexploring #protectthearctic

#Lr_Weather photo by @jordhammond || I captured this photo on my first day in Iceland. We drove straight from the airport to this spot, arriving around 1 a.m. My friend ran down the road to begin the climb up to this peak. Then, it was just a waiting game until the fog cleared enough to get the shot! at Kerlingarfjöll

#Lr_Weather photo by @mpthecomebackid || I took this on my iPhone last New Year’s Eve when I was home for the holidays in NYC. This winter night was abnormally rainy yet warm. The rain illuminated the city down by the Fulton Center.​⁠ •​⁠ NYC in the rain is magical. I couldn’t resist the urge to chase some lights and umbrellas before the whole city celebrated the new year. The colorful Fulton Center in the background combined with the umbrella in the foreground made for some compelling elements! I always look forward to a rainy night in NYC whenever I visit!​ at Fulton Center

#Lr_Weather photo by @elisabethontheroad || Much like astrophotography, there is so much more to see after you hit the shutter on a storm. Lightning is fast, but sometimes you can catch it, and sometimes it really does have a pinkish-purple hue to it. This shot is a bit grainy and overexposed, but I love the colors, and it’s closest to what my eyes picked up when we were shooting CG (cloud-to-ground) bolts outside of Dalhart, Texas one evening. After capturing some video, I kept my camera on my tripod and manually fired off a few frames. As a result, we got this shot. ⁠ •⁠ Announcing this month’s new theme: #Lr_Weather. Make sure to share your stormy photos with us and tag #Lr_Weather for a chance to be featured on the Lightroom Instagram page!⁠

Photos by @kellydelay || People don’t typically realize this, but storms have a sort of pulse. Supercells are rotating storms. Moving along, they create a lot of energy. This “pulse” is apparent when you watch one. When you see a lightning strike, start counting to yourself. How close together are the flashes? Over time, you will begin to sense a pattern. Then, just as the storm is dying down, there always seems to be one last big strike or charge of lightning.​

Photo by @elisabethontheroad || We only had a few minutes to shoot this storm, but I was still able to set up my tripod for a few shots on my wide-angle. Shortly after we snapped a few dozen photos of this supercell in eastern Texas, it merged with two other nearby storms and continued to Kansas where it turned into a tornado later in the evening. While we were able to make it out safely, a 60-mph wind gust ripped the glasses right off Kelly’s (@kelldelay) face, so it was quite an eventful day!⁠

Photo by @elisabethontheroad || It’s not just about photographing storms for me. It’s also about the undulation of the grass and the magic light after the swirling skies pass. When you’re not getting blasted with hail and gale-force winds, rain is a pretty soothing sound.⁠ •⁠ In addition to the full sensory experience of chasing storms, I'm always looking for the perfect patch of wheat when I chase. If I see something I like, I'll ditch my wide-angle lens for my 24-70mm f/2.8 and play around with the details. While shooting a supercell in eastern Colorado, I did just that, and it's one of my favorite detail shots to date, as I love the contrast between the dark gray skies and the golden wheat.⁠ • Find out more photography tips and storm chasing secrets from @elisabethontheroad and @kellydelay at the link in our bio!

Photos by @kellydelay || I have always loved storms and all things weather-related. I gravitated towards them immediately. When I was in 8th grade, I built a camera for my school’s science fair to capture lightning on film. From then on, the two passions became perpetually linked. Transitioning to storm chasing on the plains was a natural progression.​⁠⠀ •​⁠⠀ Ten years ago, I worked on this ‘Clouds 365’ project, which had me taking pictures of the sky every day. After that, I was invited on a storm chasing tour, and have been hooked ever since!​

Photo by @elisabethontheroad || Chasing storms means driving thousands of miles in the span of a few days, and sometimes the plains just seem to go on forever. You pass by feedlots, fast food joints and small towns that either take you back six decades—or make you feel like you’re in a foreign country. But there is also an indescribable charm to rural America.⁠ •⁠ The more time I spend out here, the more I find myself loving it. When my partner Kelly DeLay (@kellydelay) drove us in-between storms in eastern Colorado one day, this cloud caught my eye, and though the truck appears to be driving under it, the storm is still miles away.⁠

Photo by @elisabethontheroad || Hi everybody, my name is Elisabeth Brentano (@elisabethontheroad) and I’ll be taking over the Lightroom Instagram page this week alongside my colleague Kelly DeLay (@kellydelay). We’ll be talking about our relationship to storm chasing and will be sharing some insights into this crazy hobby of ours. Hope you all enjoy.⁠ •⁠ Finding compositions in the plains can be tough. Not only are you looking to capture the best angle of the storm, but you are also watching yourself so that you don’t get caught in it. There are a lot of fences, structures, animals and plants you can use as foreground elements, but coming across the right place at the right time (with the right light) is never a guarantee.⁠ •⁠ When Kelly DeLay (@kellydelay) and I were driving around one afternoon outside of Dalhart, Texas, we slowly made our way down a dirt road and stumbled across the perfect patch of sunflowers. With this pop of color and powerful supercell overhead in the distance, this was an amazing place to sit and watch the storm roll through.⁠

Photo by @wanderboy__ || This is the largest Linga in Hampi. Located next to the Lakshmi Narasimha statue, the Linga is housed inside a chamber with an opening in the front. The sanctum in which the Linga is installed is always filled with water, as a water channel is made to flow through it.⁠ •⁠ My friend and I woke up early to visit the Badavilinga temple. We had to get there right on time to capture this beautiful, morning ritual by the priest.⁠ •⁠ This priest does something unthinkable, every day. He worships Shivalinga and in the process, he steps onto it. But no one calls it sacrilege. For 86-year-old KN Krishna Bhat—who has been the priest at the lesser-known Badavilinga temple in the world-famous Hampi heritage site for decades—the daily puja is a bit of an adventure.⁠ •⁠ With the three-meter tall monolithic idol dwarfing the pint-sized man, he has no option but to cling to the structure while clearing it of the previous day’s flowers. In the absence of a ladder or scaffolding in the water-logged temple, he steps on the base of the Shivalinga for support. He hangs onto it and applies bhasma (vibhuti) and vermilion to the idol before returning to the doors of the eternally flooded temple.⁠ at Hampi, Karnataka

#Lr_Light photo by @justy.ldn|| The Gardens by the Bay is an iconic spot in Singapore, so I had a shot like this in mind for a while. I arrived far before the crowds did, giving me time to line up this shot.⁠ •⁠ I was lucky to have this stream of light catching the waterfall, though I had to work hard to soften the light in the image because the sun outside was overwhelming.⁠ •⁠ This was my first time in Singapore, and the perfect location to begin my first solo around-the-world adventure! After only seeing these places through others’ images, I was so happy to capture my own memory. ⁠ at Gardens By the Bay, Singapore

#Lr_Light photo by @danielkrakan || Several weeks ago, my family and I traveled to Cuba’s capital city, Havana. The second I entered this beautiful place, I was immediately immersed by the rich culture Havana had to offer. There’s so much character on every street, and the people are some of the kindest and most generous I have ever met.⁠ •⁠ Although some of the surrounding buildings around here may be a little run-down, those colorful vintage cars are something else. It’s so cool to see how much pride the locals take in their cars.⁠ •⁠ Traveling to Havana had been on my bucket list for a while now, and I’m happy to be able to scratch that one-off. For those of you who have never been, I recommend going, you will not be disappointed!⁠ at Havana, Cuba

#Lr_Light photo by @renan_ozturk || This was shot on the ‘Sawtooth Traverse’ in the High Sierras of California while we were in a bivouac (a temporary camp) beyond the ridge, just after sunset.⁠ •⁠ Biting wind, dehydration, hunger, altitude sickness and a bit of fear—sometimes climbing makes no sense at all. But, sharing my stories in these places makes it worth it, and so does the simple joy of moving across these seldom-touched skylines, like kids on a playground.⁠ at Sierra Nevada

Hey everyone, @benjamin_warde here. Welcome back to #LightroomLessons. Sometimes particular lighting conditions can make it very hard to correct white balance (the overall color cast of your photo). Swipe through to learn some tricks that can be helpful!⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 1: Here’s what this photo looked like right out of the camera - those nighttime city lights make it so yellow! Let’s fix this. First, make sure you’re in Edit mode.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 2: Then tap on the “Color” controls.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 3: We’ll use the first two sliders, which are the White Balance controls. Since the picture is way too yellow, we’ll start by moving the “Temp” slider away from yellow and towards blue. That’s helped, but now the photo is too green…⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 4: …so we’ll move the “Tint” slider away from green and towards magenta (pink). This looks a lot better, but it’s not perfect - even if I move the “Tint” slider all the way towards the magenta end, the yellow shipping containers are still too greenish (and the grey pavement turns pink!). In this case, the White Balance controls were not enough to fix the white balance, so let’s continue the fix using the Color Mix controls.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 5: Tap on the “Mix” button. The Color Mix controls allow you to make adjustments to an individual color without affecting any other colors. (In this case we’re using it to fix white balance, but you can use it for other things too - for example, you can increase the saturation of blues to really make the sky pop!)⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 6: Tap on the Yellow button to adjust the yellow parts of the photo.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 7: Let’s start by changing the hue of the yellow. The yellow is too greenish, so move the hue away from green and towards orange.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 8: This looks good, except since the photo started out so intensely yellow, the yellows are still too bright and saturated, so let’s take down the saturation of the yellow.⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Step 9: That looks much better! When you’re all through, click the “Done” button.

Photo by @mmeyers76 for #Lr_Light || This photo is from the first morning of a huge, 10-day road trip. I’d never been to the Valley of Fire before, so I wanted to experience every moment of the trip, starting with the sunrise. ⁠ •⁠ I snapped this shot of @mindz.eye as he was shooting down the road, and it just happened to be perfect. We had gorgeous light during the sunrise, and it really set the tone for the rest of the trip.⁠ at Valley of Fire State Park

Photo by @yantastic for #Lr_Light || I was on a San Francisco Bay cruise just before sunset, and I guess I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. ⁠ •⁠ It was hazy and moody, with the sun just barely peeking out behind the bridge. The boat was moving quickly, so I whipped out my camera and quickly snapped a few photos. This was one of them.⁠ at Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, California, Usa

Photo by @fameisficklefood for #Lr_Light || If photography has taught me one thing, it’s patience. I can take over 2,000 photos in one evening, but only one will see the light of day. This is one of them.⁠ •⁠ After a long, grueling hike in terrible weather, the most challenging part of this whole experience was sitting and waiting for that rare moment when light breaks through the clouds, or, in this case, when an epic lightning show gives you a glimpse of brilliance.⁠ at Arches National Park
