Here is a link to a post on Adobe.com that shows some of the enhancements and edits that I made in Lightroom and Photoshop while post processing my images from Antarctica. Enjoy!

For the past several years, I’ve created a slideshow as a simple way to look back at my year through the images that I’ve posted using Lightroom mobile to my Instagram account. I find this yearly exercise yields interesting insights about where I am in my life as well as allows me to reflect upon the places that I’ve gone and the experiences that I’ve had. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year to see the path that you followed in 2016. Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2017, -julieanne

I’ll be speaking at Photo Plus Expo in New York on Friday October 21, 2016 from 2pm – 4pm:
Adobe Photoshop + Lightroom + Creative Cloud = Unlimited Creativity
In this action-packed seminar, you’ll discover how you can elevate your creativity and enhance your productivity. Adobe’s Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist, Julieanne Kost, walks through her complete workflow starting with managing, editing, and toning photographs in Lightroom. Then, she’ll move beyond the single image and demonstrate how to enhance and blend images using complex selections, masking and compositing in Photoshop. Finally, she will explore several different publishing options, mobile apps and services including Adobe Portfolio, Behance, Spark, Stock and Creative Sync. You’ll leave with new techniques to take your work further than you thought possible, saving time in the process.
I just found out that you can receive a 20% discount on registration through this page:

I hope to see you in New York!
I’m back, and I have to admit that I enjoyed my time off immensely – primarily due to the fact that I was able to spend the majority of time working in Photoshop! I know that might seem a bit odd to many of you, but even through I work in Adobe products on a daily basis, I seldom carve out large chunks of time to work on my own photography. Having time to tone, retouch, and publish photographs for my gallery as well as create a body of work from my visit to Antarctica, was certainly a gift. In the next few weeks I hope to share my thought process, techniques, and shortcuts used to tone and enhance the images from Antarctica that I’ve been posting to my Behance and Adobe Portfolio site.
But for today (while I catch up on email and all-things Adobe), here are links to the four galleries that I’ve posted thus far:
I’m going to take the next two months to rejuvenate, revive, and replenish my creativity thanks to Adobe’s sabbatical program. I will not be posting to my blog, nor answering comments (or email), but will be working on my own special projects instead. I will be returning on October 4th and look forward to seeing what has evolved in my absence.

“Creating a Photographic Project from Conception Through Execution” In-Depth Workshop at Photoshop World
If you’re going to be attending Photoshop World, Las Vegas, I hope you will join me for an in-depth workshop – Passenger Seat: Creating a Photographic Project from Conception Through Execution. We’ll learn what it takes to define and execute a photographic project. I’ll focus on the techniques and workflows that enabled me to publish my most recent book and body of work: Passenger Seat. You’ll discover how to organize your personal project starting from the initial idea, continuing through planning and executing the shoots, mastering the post-capture workflow, to delivering the project for publication and distribution as a book, slideshow, exhibit, or social media. Defining who you want to be as an artist and what you want to create will give you permission to emerge – allowing discovery and imagination to flourish.
This in-depth workshop will be held from 12-3 on Monday, July 18th 2016. I hope to see you there!
I am really excited to have the opportunity to give a special workshop and evening lecture at the Booth Western Art Museum on January 9th in Atlanta, GA. I am honored to have three of my images included in their current exhibition: Ansel Adams: Before & After where you can experience the iconic work of famed photographer Ansel Adams in a new light – set amongst the work of his predecessors, peers and contemporary photographers. If you’re in the Atlanta area, I hope you will join us on Saturday evening.

Thank you Lex and team! I love the interview that you posted on the Photoshop.com blog about my new book. To learn more about what inspired me to make the Passenger Seat images and, why I think personal projects are so important, check out the Q & A here.
I’m excited to announce my new book “Passenger Seat: Creating a Photographic Project from Conception through Execution in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom” is now available!
In her long career as Product Evangelist for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, Julieanne Kost has taught thousands of digital photographers how to get the most out of Adobe’s digital imaging software, in seminars, presentations, and blog posts ranging from nuts-and-bolts tips and tricks to inspirational tutorials on creating sophisticated artistic effects. As Lightroom has grown into the premier image organization and editing tool for photographers, she is often asked by her students and other fans to outline her own Lightroom workflow in a book. This is that book!
Using her own stunning images as the starting point, Julieanne shares her working methods with the reader, starting from the initial idea for a photo project, continuing through planning and executing the shoots, and spending the bulk of the time describing the post-capture workflow: organizing the images in Lightroom, performing basic and advanced edits, off-loading images to Photoshop for special purposes, then packaging the project for publication and distribution as a book, slideshow, or web site.
Readers will reap the benefit of Julieanne’s long and deep experience with both Lightroom and Photoshop as well as her refined artist’s sensibility. The book deftly combines practical information about working with the camera and computer, but under Julieanne’s guidance the practical is always presented in the service of maintaining and supporting the photographer’s vision for the overall project.
There are other books on using Lightroom to catalog and edit images, but they tend to be general-purpose manuals that cover any and all types of images and uses. This book focuses on those techniques and workflows that Julieanne finds most useful for her own photographic projects; in this case a series of images shot from the window of a moving car going through a variety of landscapes at different times of the year.
