Using Reference View In Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.8
   Adobe has just updated Lightroom CC to version 2015.8 and with the update comes performance boost and a new tool that I really enjoy called the reference view mode. This new view mode lets you take a single image that you want all your others to look like and view it while using the develop module, letting you fine tune all your images to match. This is a fantastic tool that I think many other photographers will also enjoy. So in this quick video tutorial I show you how to access and use the new reference view mode.

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 vs. Canon 11-24mm f/4L Lens - Clarification On Their Comparison | Vlog

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 vs. Canon 11-24mm f/4L Lens - Clarification On Their Comparison | Vlog
   I made a review of the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm f/2.8 UMC Lens a while back and at the end of the review I compared it to the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens. There seems to be some confusion that I may have inadvertently made many think that I was claiming the Rokinon lens was better then the Canon lens. So in this video I will speak more slowly and clarify my statement from that product review video.
