How To Create Fake Sun Flare In Your Photos - Before & After

About This Photo:

   This is a photo that I had taken at Singapore's premier bird park. It is an amazing place to visit and highly recommended for anyone traveling out that way. The exposure used was ISO1250, f/6.3 at 1/125th sec and at 100mm. The camera used was the Canon EOS 70D and the Tamron SP 70-300mm Lens. This lens is soft at f/5.6 and gets its sharpest about f/8. So I didn't want to go no faster then f/6.3 and couldn't go no slower without raising the ISO up any higher, which would have introduced more noise. Then take into account that I was already at 100mm so didn't want to go no slower on the shutter speed as could end up introducing blur since I was shooting 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.

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.
