Lightroom and Photoshop Before/After Video – Toronto Skyline Photo

The other day, during my seminar in Toronto, I showed the skyline photo I took the night before. Well, after the seminar some one came up and said they wished I showed how I processed the photo during the day. See, I showed them the photo but didn’t go over what I did. I actually didn’t do too much to it, so I thought I’d do a quick video. I even go over the camera settings, the lens, focal length, where the photo...

Video – Using Photo Mechanic with Lightroom

I’m doing a little bit of a different kind of video this time. It came as an idea after reading Scott Kelby’s post on his sports photography workflow. I realized that I (and many other photographers out there) use a program called Photo Mechanic to look through our photos at times.

But the cool thing about presets is that you can do it really...

Video – Calibration Profiles and Presets

Last week, I posted some of my Lightroom presets for the camera profiles that you find in the Camera Calibration panel in Lightroom. After I started reading through the questions and comments I realized that a lot of people didn’t know one of the huge benefits of using presets for the camera profiles. See, the presets I gave out, were simply just shortcuts to the settings in the Calibration panel, rather than my own recipe of...
