About This Tutorial:

   I wanted to teach dodge & burn, however I didn't want to get to in depth using Lightroom's adjustment brush and overwhelm anyone trying to learn this technique. Since Evening Moon Solitude was a simple image that used dodge & burn, I thought this would be a good tutorial to start out with.

   The photo used in this tutorial was taken on my Canon 70D with the Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro Lens. This is an older, but seriously super sharp lens that can still be found on Amazon. The camera settings used was ISO 250, f/3.5 @ 1/2500 sec. I used these settings to freeze the subject into place as the wind was blowing that day and slower shutter speeds were producing less then sharp 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.
