Video – Develop From Start to Finish

I’m veering off the normal “tips” video this week and doing something a little different. This time around I’m taking a photo thru the Develop module from start to finish. Basically, I’ll show you what I would do for a properly exposed photo, for the most part. I’ll go through what settings I would use and what settings I typically ignore. In the coming weeks I’ll take a look at problem...

Website and News

Website:I found the coolest little website today. It’s not necessarily photography-specific, but I think it’s a great idea. It’s called SunriseSunset.com and, by the sound of the name, you can pretty much guess what it does. It lists the sunrise and sunset times of some major cities around the world.
