Learn How To Split Tone Black And White Photos In Adobe Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Learn How To Split Tone Black And White Photos In Lightroom 5
   Do you feel like your B&W photography is getting a little boring? In this tutorial we explore the possibilities of using creative split toning on a B&W photo of a Lilly Flower and demonstrate ways that could inspire you to create your own work of art.




About this tutorial:

Are you looking for creative ways to express your black & white photos[1]? In this video tutorial I will show you how to use Lightroom 5's[2] Split Toning tool to add color to your image. This is a great way to add color to a photo, while still limiting your pallet set. This is  many cases can add a very elegant look to the photo. For this tutorial we first do our basic edits from lens corrections to noise reduction. Then we switch the picture to B&W in Lightroom and adjust our highlights and shadows and so one. After doing this we use split toning to add color to the shadows of our image. You can add any color you wish, and any intensity you wish. I choose red with a hint of orange for this tutorial.

The photo used in this tutorial is of a wild White Lily I have growing around my house here in the Philippines. I used my Canon EOS 70D[3] with the Sigma 17-70mm Macro Contemporary lens[4] and camera set to f/6.3, 1/320s, ISO 400 & focal length of 70mm (112mm on full frame). This allowed for a nice soft Bokeh[5] and still kept the image sharp in the wind, despite the outside getting dim with the sun starting to set.

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.
