Plus Sneak Peek: Your Photo Our Look Part I of II

First off, a HUGE shoutout to all of you Plus Community folks who submitted images for the Your Photo Our Look series. You really outdid yourselves providing us with a spectacular and diverse set of RAW images to choose from. Thank you. I chose to do this two-part episode exclusively in Photo RAW 2017. I’ve heard a desire in the Plus Discussion Forums for more Photo RAW specific content, so I used this opportunity to provide it.

I had so much fun creating this first episode of Your Photo Our Look for 2017, that I lost track of time… The resultant start to finish editing video in Photo Raw is long enough that I decided to split it into two parts…

Here in Part I I edit a really cool travel portrait as well as an awesome action shot. In the next video (Part II) I will quickly touch up a landscape image and use it to discuss optimum exposure in the field before editing an incredible deep space nebula photo. I delve into an array of Develop settings and Effects filters including noise reduction and sharpening. If you have questions or comments about these images or this particular video please leave them below. For Plus members that have detailed questions about the photos, tools and/or techniques in the videos, head over the Plus Discussion Forum and either ask us coaches or take the conversation to the community as a whole.

    Thanks, Hudson. I thoroughly enjoy the Your Photo Our Look presentations. Hopefully, they’ll occur at least monthly. Wishful thinking??

    I really like these videos and looking forward to following this series.
    BTW, as far as I can tell, the Preview shows the image without any development settings and without any Effects filters. The only edits that are not turned off are any retouching (11.01.3469)

    How to add blur to adjust depth of field in the first photo was just what I needed for working with some photos that I am working on now. How fortunate to have someone like you explain it so simply!

    Love the your photo our look series. Much like the photo critiques in that they’re educational but on a new whole new level. So cool, thanks for doing these!

      Hey Satya,

      It was one of the monthly loyalty rewards last year. If you search your email for Plus Loyalty Rewards you should be able to find it still.

    ‘So glad to have this series back, Hudson! These videos really help put the concepts we learn in the training videos to effective use.

    Thanks.
    P.S. How’s Pike?

    Please keep these coming on a regular basis. Really helps to see how you approach “developing” one of the members photos using PhotoRaw. Helps me experiment with different workflows and looks that I wouldn’t have imagined before.

    Hope to see this at least every other month.

    Cheers!
