I’m Giving Up Photoshop For the Month of January

To celebrate the 8-year (WOW! 8 years already!) anniversary of the first beta version of Lightroom, I’ve decided I’m going Lightroom Only for the month of January. The first Lightroom beta was announced on January 9th 2006 and I can still remember wondering whether this program was for me or not. Eight years later, I couldn’t live without it. So much so, that I’ve decided to really dig in and tackle the one...

Lightroom Tip: Update Your Copyright Year

It’s that time of the year again. If you use Lightroom then you should be using Metadata templates to add copyright info to your photos as you bring them in to Lightroom. Even if you’re not a pro, having the copyright info tagged to all of your photos is just generally a good idea. This info is attached to all of your photos, even when you export from Lightroom, so that where ever your photos go, the copyright notice goes...

It’s Lightroom Optimize-Your-Catalog Day

Well, it’s the end of the year and this is a great time to optimize your Lightroom catalog. I know a lot of you organize Lightroom by year, so you’ll be starting out with a brand new catalog tomorrow for 2014. But for me personally, just because 1 day goes by, doesn’t mean I don’t want the photos I may take next week to be right next to the photos I took last month. One day on the calendar doesn’t change...

I’ll start from the original unedited photo and take you all the way through the...

Lightroom Tip: The Color Sampler Tool

You’ll notice a few tools in Lightroom that have a Color Picker built right inside of them. One place is in the Split Toning panel in the Develop module. Also, the Graduated Filter, Adjustment Brush and Radial filter all have them so you can paint or target a specific part of the photo to have a color tint added to it. Here’s an example of the color picker (circled below). As you’d expect, when you click to see the...

Behind the Scenes: New York City Long Exposure

I’m in New York this week for the annual PDN PhotoPlus Conference and brought my camera along in case I got the chance to shoot. Well, if you didn’t know already, I’m a sucker for a good long exposure scene. For me, anything with a strong (and not moving) foreground and a cool background, along with some moving water, makes a great long exposure photo. Finding a Location After doing some research on 500px.com, I...
