About this tutorial:

   Well this is the first tutorial that I have created in my new office since I moved in and I hope everyone enjoys this video tutorial. Looking on YouTube I didn't find many video tutorials on creating retro/vintage photos from the 70's[1]. What few I did find I felt were lacking a bit or were more aimed at Photoshop and not really for Lightroom. So I hope this video tutorial is useful and informative for anyone looking to re-create a 70's look photo for fun or professionally.

   The photo used in this video tutorial was taken on a Canon EOS 600D (Rebel T3i)[2] and the Canon EF 75-300mm mark III lens[3]. This lens is a older lens and has no image stabilization, also in optical quality it is starting to become a little soft. Since this lens has no IS and I was shooting at the full 300mm (480mm on a cropped sensor camera like the 600D used). I had my sensor sensitivity bumped up to ISO400 and was shooting at 1/800th second. Aperture was at f/5.6 to try to soften the background up. As always for normal photos I was shooting RAW and using ProPhoto RGB. No filters were used in this shot.

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.
