About This Photo:

   This photo is of a rice field in southern Philippines. The camera and lens used was a Canon EOS 70D and a Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Contemporary lens. The image was taken using a single exposure at ISO250, f/7.1, 1/400sec at 70mm. ISO250 was used so I could use a fast shutter speed of 1/400sec. I felt that was important for two reasons. One I wanted to use aperture of f/7.1 for the depth of field and that its also a sweet spot for sharpness with this lens at that focal length. Plus the wind was blowing quiet a bit that day and I did not want any leaves or tree tops to get blurred.

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.
