Video – Soft Dreamy Effect Follow Up

Here’s the follow up video to yesterday’s presets I released. The soft/dreamy presets tend to soften everything in the photo. In this video, I show you how to selectively go into the photo and bring back the details in the areas you wanted to keep them in. The best things about it… it’s all done in Lightroom (Lightroom 2 that is). No trips to Photoshop. Everything is non-destructive and you can go back and...

Fortunately it’s a lot simpler then it may seem and Adobe has given us an easy way to save out specific images or folders to move from...

Lately I’ve really been into shooting HDR images. I bracket just about everything that I can. Why? Not because I like the fantasy-like effect that’s been popular. Honestly, it’s just not my style but I can definitely appreciate it for certain photos. For me though, it’s more about having real world HDR. It saves me time in Photoshop and I’m amazed that I’ve never explored HDR for my landscape and...

Video – Importing the Exports

Happy video day. This one comes directly from a question I got earlier this week and a question that I get every single time I teach Lightroom. It has to do with what you do with the photos you export from Lightroom (using File > Export). Lightroom 2 beta actually has a new feature that deals with this but let’s face it – it’s not ready for prime-time production work and I strictly use it for “Play”...
