Learn How To Process Night Photos With Adobe Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Learn How To Process Night Photos With Lightroom 5
   Do you love long exposure photos, or just want to know how to post process your images from your night photography? In this video I show you how to edit this photo I took of the Paras Hotel on Camiguin Island, Philippines at night. This is both a panoramic and long exposure photo and I hope you enjoy learning how to edit these type of photos.




About this tutorial:

I have to say that my favorite type of photography is Long Exposure[1]. This may be because I love the nights so much. In this particular tutorial I actually have multiple long exposures to create a small panorama[2]. I will step you through pre-editing these images in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom[3] were we add some basic lens corrections and noise reduction to our files. Then we will export them to Photoshop CC[4] were we use Photomerge to stitch the images together. Last we bring the panorama back into Lightroom 5 were we crop and finish up our adjustments. I actually focus heavily on bringing out the image in this photo with Lightroom as it ended up being underexposed more then I wanted. Honestly the sun set really quick on me and I wanted a brighter sky. 

The photo used in this tutorial is of the Paras Hotel located on the northern end of Camiguin Island[5] here in the Philippines. Its just a wonderful place to visit, people are very friendly and its commonly known as the Hawaii of the Philippines with its hot springs and beautiful waterfalls. I used my Canon EOS 70D[6] and Sigma 17-70mm Contemporary Lens[7] with a 6-point star filter[8] to take this photo. Exposure settings were f/11, 15sec, ISO200 at 17mm (27mm full-frame) focal length. Hind sight I should have went with f/7.1 or f/9. But it happened to be the last night I was on the island for that trip. However I live about 3 hours from there, so do expect me to return as there is so many more photos I wanted to get but, it was just a weekend trip. Next time I go I plan on staying a week and getting more sunsets and sunrises.

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.

Obama Administration Will Make Photographers Register Their UAV | Joe's Video Blog

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.
