About This Photo:

   This photo was taken on the beach here where I live. The stick platforms you see in the background are made of bamboo and the locals put them there to sit on and fish sardines and other fish in the water. I took this photo on a very gloomy day and I had intended on getting a long 30sec exposure as the sun started to set, instead I was only able to get a 8sec exposure because it started raining. That happens sometimes. Which is why to get the 8sec exposure it required me to use an aperture of f/29 and a 3 stop ND filter, in addition my CPL which got me one more additional stop of light reduction.

   The camera, lens and exposure used was a Canon EOS 600D (T3i), Canon EF-S 10-22mm USM Lens and a exposure settings of ISO100, 8sec, f/29 at 22mm. Also small gorilla pod was used to get the camera low to the ground and hold it steady.

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.
