Lightroom 5 Night Photography Workflow Basics


About this tutorial:

   I love shooting at night or just after sunset.  I took this photo out on a walk with some friends and thought it would be great for my night photography workflow video The photo is of Butuan Bay here on the shore of Mindanao in the southern Philippines. The lights are of my local town I live in. The image was taken with my Canon EOS 70D and Sigma 17-70mm Contemporary lens. Camera settings used was ISO 100, f/6.3 and 10sec exposure. Focal range was about 24mm. I also used a tripod as it would be impossible for me to hold the camera for 10sec and I used the 2sec delay to prevent camera shake. I do believe I did have a CPL filter still on my lens. I wanted a 10sec or longer exposure to make the ocean water smooth as the waves were very busy. I wanted to stay at f/6.3 on this lens as IMHO from my experience its the sharpest aperture for this lens. Over all I think it turned out very nice. Hope everyone enjoys it. Also please leave your comments down below as I would love to hear from everyone.. Cheers..

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.
