Tip of the Month: The Sky That Almost Wasn’t

Fix a weak sky using Lightroom Classic’s Dehaze Slider

Fix a sky in Lightroom with the Dehaze slider.

I was out photographing landscapes the other morning at Garden of the Gods, and the sky was just not great. Fortunately, I capture all my photos in raw format and make sure that I expose as to not blow out the highlights.
