Learn How To Enhance Floral Photos In Lightroom 5
   Looking to add a dreamy surreal look to your floral photography, or just want to take your images to the next level. Don't miss this video tutorial were I show you how to add a surreal look to your flower photos.




About this tutorial:

It seems I have many tutorial videos on how to improve ones flower photos. In this tutorial I will show you how to enhance your floral photos and give them a surreal look. We first start by opening the develop module in Lightroom 5[1] and then step you through basic lens corrections and noise reduction. Followed by adjusting your highlights and shadows before digging deeper into Lightroom's adjustments to really bring out the image. We then finish off by adding a bright vignetting look using the post crop vignetting tools. This is your basic flower-power editing Lightroom editing tutorial, but one you do not want to miss.

The photo in this tutorial is of two Yellow Bell flowers[2]. There is two species of this plant in the Philippines, a smaller one and a larger one used in this tutorial. I took these photos just before sunset and was pushing the settings on my camera to get a good exposure without underexposing the image. So I had the camera set to Av (Aperture Priority) mode and auto ISO. I used my Canon EOS 70D[3] and Sigma 17-70mm Macro Contemporary lens[4]. Actual exposure settings were f/4, 1/125sec, ISO500 at 70mm (112mm 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.
