Learn How To Make A HDR Photo In Adobe Lightroom | Video Tutorial

Learn How To Make A HDR Photo In Adobe Lightroom
   Do you love HDR photos? But don't like taking the time to combine images and or are able to take multiple shots for various reason? In this video tutorial I will show you how to use Adobe Lightroom to edit a single image to give it the appearance of an HDR photo.




About this tutorial:

Everyone loves HDR photos[1] it seems. However they can be a pain to take and sometimes the lighting conditions don't allow for the best exposures. Take for example the photo used in this tutorial. With the sun setting, clouds rolling and still wanting to get a long exposure[2] to smooth out the ocean waters. Its easier to just take one photo and edit it in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom[3].  For this tutorial I will show you how to use Lightroom 5 to lower the highlights and bring up the shadows in a way that we can great a sudo HDR look without the need for HDR software.

The photo in this tutorial was taken of Butuan Bay[4] during a low tide here in the Philippines. This is one of the many photos I have taken between rain showers. This particular one was me trying to take a photo of the sun setting over the western side of the island. However the rain quickly ran me away before the suns final moments. I used my Canon EOS 70D and EF-S 10-22mm USM Lens to take this photo. The camera settings used for this were f/11, 1sec, ISO100 and at 10mm (16mm full-frame) focal length.

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.
