Canon EOS 5D mark IV 4k C-Log Update FAIL - Why Joe Is Not Impressed

Canon EOS 5D mark IV 4k C-Log Update FAIL - Why Joe Is Not Impressed
   Well Canon has announced a optional update to the EOS 5D mark IV's video features. This update will add Canon Log (C-Log) option to your camera and you will have to send it in to have this feature added. In addition you have to pay for the update. So in this video I talk about other features the 5D IV needed, but Canon simply failed to add.

Exploring Lightroom Retouching Techniques - Ep #5 - Black & White Night Cityscape

Exploring Lightroom Retouching Techniques - Ep #5 - Black & White Night Cityscape
   Do you love cityscape or black and white photography? In this Adobe Lightroom CC tutorial. I got something for both. For this tutorial I take a color photo I took of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and I convert it to black and white, improve you black and white tones, show you how I would edit and even hop over to Photoshop to remove an unwanted distraction from the image.
