I’ve had a few requests on editing night photos lately, so I thought I’d show you one of my edits from start to finish. Also, you’ll get a sneak peak of Photo RAW in this video, just to show you the power of having an editor built for a raw photo, that can take advantage of all that those files have to offer. Enjoy!
I shoot raw almost 100% of the time. But I’ve often wondered if I really need to. Sure, I know the advantages… but there’s so many times where I don’t need those advantages. So this past week I decided to try an experiment while on a trip. Part of the experiment was planned, but part of it was also unplanned, as you’ll see in the video. Enjoy!
I had an older photo drive attached to my computer looking for something, and I came across a photo shoot from a trip I took over 10 years ago. So I figured I’d go through the photos with you, taking a look at what I liked and didn’t like (about what I did 10 years ago), and even edit one of the photos. It was definitely a fun process and got me looking through my older photos again, so hopefully it inspires some of you to do the same. Enjoy!
If you’ve ever wanted to enhance the look and feel of the sun in your photos, there’s some cool tricks we can do when we combine a bit of brightening with the Sunshine filters (for some glow). In this video, I’ll walk you through a technique I use quite a bit in Lightroom, but it translates really well over in to Effects too. Enjoy!
A while back I wrote a blog post about a few ways/apps to use to add text to your photos. Keep in mind, these were not suggesting alternatives to using Photoshop or InDesign, or Illustrator or whatever manual program you have to adding text. These were some ideas I thought helped you with adding nice and professional looking text to your photos.
