Video – Where to store your photos in LR?

Earlier today I got a call from a friend of mine. He’s a seasoned photographer that works for Nikon and he’s been in this business longer then I’ve been alive.

This week I’m changing it up a little and showing a creative technique that I’ve seen become very popular lately. It’s something that you’d typically create in Photoshop (and maybe with a plug-in) but you can come up with some very cool results right here in Lightroom. It’s creative… it’s edgy… and it almost has a surreal quality to it. All that aside, I just think it looks cool on some...

Video – Real World Collections

I’ll be the first to admit that there are plenty of features in Lightroom for which a real-world use is not immediately obvious. I started thinking about collections the other day (that’s what I do on my time off ) and realized that there are so many real-world uses for them in Lightroom, but I haven’t seen them covered much.
