Learn How To Create Awesome Sunset Photos in Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

   Do your sunset photos look less then impressive? Would you like to learn some simple techniques in Lightroom 5 that can turn those photos into the next potential photo to go viral on 500px. Then this video tutorial is for you. I will show you what I do to turn boring and badly exposed images into vibrant works of art by just using the tools found in Adobe Lightroom 5.




About this tutorial:

   I have been showing a friend of mine the ins and outs of Lightroom[1] the past few weeks. Plus just the other day we went on a photo walk and get some really good sunset photos. Showing him my tips for editing, I realized that this would likely be a tutorial that others would also love to watch. So I found on of my badly exposed photos and played around with it to see if I could revive it back from the dead, and sure enough it came out respectively nice. The reason I did this is, its one thing to start with great and end up with great. So a perfectly exposed picture being edited doesn't always show someone how to really edit a photo, if your not having to do much to edit it anyway. So in this tutorial I try to pull out all the bunnies in my magic hat from correcting exposure, removing lens flare, adding color to grey areas and so much more. I used the radial filter, gradient filter, gradient brush and so much more. After this tutorial anyone should have the knowledge to edit about any sunset in Lightroom.

   The photo used in this tutorial as seen above is of Butuan Bay here in Mindanao Philippines. The camera used was my trusty Canon EOS 70D[2] and I used my Sigma 17-70mm Contemporary Lens[3]. Exposure settings used were ISO 100, f/6.3 and 1/15sec @ 17mm.

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.
