Learn How To Split Tone Color Photos In Adobe Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Learn How To Split Tone Color Photos In Lightroom 5
   Floral Photography is very popular and can be very fun. However to stand out from the crowd one must try new things. While split toning isn't new, many miss out how it can be used to help enhance their floral photo skills. In this tutorial we use Split Toning in Adobe Lightroom to bring out an ordinary flower photo and make it extraordinary.




About this tutorial:

Do you enjoy floral photography, I do from time to time. However it can be a real challenge to get your flowers to really pop in the photos. In this video tutorial I will show you my secret to making my flower photography jump out at you. We first start by opening our photo in Lightroom 5's Develop module and then do our basic edits from lens correction to noise reduction. Then we add our secret sauce of Split Toning the shadows of our image. We take the grey-ish background and add a bright blue and purple-ish hue to the image making the yellow flower highly noticeable. Last we finish up with a vignetting in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom[1].

The photo used in this tutorial is of a Yellow Bell, a native flower here in the southern Philippines that grows very easily. I took this photo with my Canon 600D and Canon EF 85mm lens[2] at f/1.8, 1/1000s and ISO 100. This helped give a very narrow depth of field and the quick shutter speed helped keep the image sharp when the delicate petals trying to flutter in the wind.

Learn How To Setup Identity Plate & Watermarks In Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Branding is important for business growth and this tutorial will help you start setting up Adobe Lightroom 5's identity plate, plus step you through adding watermarks with in Lightroom's built in watermark tools to display your branding and copyrights on your images.


About this tutorial:

   This is another tutorial were I am focusing on the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom. So many tutorials show photographers how to work in the develop module, but few show anything else about Lightroom. So I am going through every detail of Lightroom and teaching about every detail of the program. In this video tutorial I focus on two things, the Identity Plate and Watermarks. Now I have combined these for two reasons, one they are both about branding and two the ID plate tutorial would be ridiculously short. But since they are simple, I am at least able to provide solid setup detail for anyone needing to use these features in Lightroom 5.

Many photographers are taking to the skies with quad copters and other various unmanned aircraft to get amazing views for both video and still photos. But looks like this could come to an end as the US pushes to put strict limits and force registration of these air craft.
