How To: Exposure Blending In Photoshop Using Image Layers | Video Tutorial

About this tutorial:

   First let me say this is as simple as I can get this tutorial. I wanted it to be as simple as possible for someone who has never used layers in Photoshop or much less blended a photo. There was so much more I could have done in this tutorial, but that would have over complicated this for someone new to Photoshop. I will have more tutorials in time that go into layer blending much deeper. In addition, this simple layer blending technique I used here can also be used in other apps like GIMP, Paintshop Pro, Pixelmator and much more. So its not just limited to Photoshop.

   This image used in this tutorial is a combination of two separate exposures. First exposure being slightly under exposed, then the second slightly over exposed. The first exposure was taken at ISO125, f/7.1 at 1/320sec, second was at ISO125, f/7.1 at 1/30sec. Both were taken on my Canon 70D and were at 34mm and hand held.

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.
