Learn How To Use The Radial Filter In Lightroom 5
   One of the newest tools introduced with Lightroom 5 was the Radial Filter tool. This remarkable tool while simple has added a new level of creativeness that didn't exist before. In this video I step you through using Lightroom's Radial Filter tool and show how it can be used to single out or add accent to the subject in your image.




About this tutorial:

Talking about a took that makes many photographers jump for joy. The Radial Filter[2] tool introduced in Lightroom 5[1] has allowed a new level of creativity in post processing that before required the photographer to own Photoshop to get similar results. I this tutorial we use Adobe Lightroom Photoshop to edit a photo I took of a Lily flower that was growing in my flower beds. I will show you how to used the Radial filter tool to sharpen and brighten the center of the flower, while using it yet again but this time to soften and defocus the outer and existing background of the image.

I enjoy a little floral photography here and there. Floral photography is a form of macro photography[3] and I find it relaxing way to take beautiful & vibrant images.  This image was of many of the wild Lilies I have been growing in my flower beds. I was actually shocked when this one bloomed as I was under the impression we had all white lilies but as it turns out there are a had full of peach colored ones growing.

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.
