Happy Holidays & New Office Construction | Joe's Videos

Happy Holidays & New Office Construction
   Hello Everyone! I wanted to post and say Happy Holidays to everyone out there. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. Here in the Philippines it isn't snowing but there is still plenty of holiday cheer. Also I am in the middle of construction on my new studio office. I am hoping to have this finished before the first of the new year. Also I may not be posting any videos until January the 5th, 2015. This will give me time to get the office hopefully completed, moved in and started filming from there. I do plan on posting a Christmas lights video before then. The locals work really hard on creating some nice murals with xmas lights and I really want to share that with everyone. So that video will be posting soon as more of the lights are done. Until then I will be working hard to get this office completed over the next two weeks and to everyone out there, where ever you may be. Happy Holidays..

Mondays Video Will Be Delayed A Few Hours...

Hello Everyone,
I would like to apologize a head of time. Monday mornings video tutorial will be delayed a few hours due to intermittent internet outage and slowdowns due to Typhoon Hagupit. While the typhoon hasn't not directly hit here, it has effected my connection. But hopefully by morning here the video will be finished uploaded and I can finish getting it ready to post. It should be up and running by early morning in the USA. Thanks to everyone for your understanding.
-Joe

About this product:

   The Neewer Ring 48 macro LED light is an affordable lighting alternative for users getting into the world of macro photography. It uses 2x AA batteries or an optional 3volt AC adapter that accepts voltages from 110v to 230v A/C. It comes with multiple adapter plates to fit various macro lenses from 52mm up to 67mm. The Neewer Ring 48 is a continuous lighting source and not a flash. Since my purchase of this device, Neewer has since discontinued it and now sells a the Ring 48 is a Flash version. But you can still purchase this model from resellers such as Amazon. What do I think about this macro light? You have to watch the video and see.

Learn How To Export Photos In Lightroom 5, Plus Understanding PPI & Image Size | Video Tutorial

Learn How To Export Photos In Lightroom 5, Plus Understanding PPI & Image Size
   If you enjoyed last weeks video tutorial on importing and managing your photos in Lightroom. This weeks tutorial will delight you. In this video tutorial I cover how to export your photos in Adobe Lightroom 5, plus I go into detail about the image size and PPI (pixel density) options in the export module.


About this tutorial:

   This tutorial was inspired by a lengthy discussion I had a while back on one of the local forums I hang around from time to time. Although that discussion was primarily about Lightroom's PPI and image size options. I thought it would be best fitted with a full tutorial on exporting files from Adobe Lightroom 5. In this video tutorial I go over the basics and try to touch in detail on many of the exporting options before spending a good amount of time going into detail on the PPI (pixel density) and image size options. I hope everyone finds this tutorial helpful and as always I look forward to your comments.
