One of the ongoing pain points of being a photographer is the time we spend editing. Don’t get me wrong, I love turning a flat image into something breathtaking, but it does take a while to get through a batch of 1000+ photos from a wedding or concert.
Today, I’d like to show you how you can drastically speed up your photo editing in Lightroom using anchor photos.
I’m in several photography groups on Facebook, and I’ve started noticing a trend. There have been a bunch of posts talking about being undercut by photographers offering their work for almost nothing. This is a problem I see with a lot of newer photographers (in fact, I was helping my sister with this issue a while ago), and I’d like to offer a bit of advice.
I was on an assignment at Charlie Bulldog's in Jackson today, and I really wanted to share this story with you guys. It's heartbreaking, but it has a happy ending. This is the story of a dog named Summer
Despite the almost thirty thousand photos I've taken, I've never really experimented with black and white before, so today I thought I'd give it a try with some black and white portraits. While editing, I decided to add a bit of split toning, so its technically not "true" B&W, but I think it turned out pretty well, don't you think? A special thank you to my beautiful model, Katherine Cheshire! These photos wouldn't have looked nearly as good without you!
Whether you're a newbie or a veteran, a hobbyist or a pro, we all want to improve our photography. But what sets the best photographers above the rest? In this post, I'm going to reveal the secret to getting the incredible photos you've always wanted!
Have you ever wondered how pro photographers get that beautiful creamy look in the backgrounds of their photos? Ever wondered how landscape photographers manage to get such sharp detail throughout the entire frame? Well today we're going to talk about the aperture setting on your camera, what it is, what it does, and why it's important.
One question that I get asked constantly as a media professional is people asking me to work for little or no money. People assume that since digital files are painless to copy and don't cost much to store, that they shouldn't have to pay much money to have a video or photos made. After all, it's not like you have to buy DVDs anymore, right? You can just make something simple really quick, and it doesn't have to be anything fancy, right? Why do photos cost $100+?
RAW vs. JPEG used to be a controversial topic, but now it's kind of old hat in photography circles. That said, I'm going to talk about it today because it's foundational for my upcoming series involving Lightroom 5, so bear with me.
