Lightroom Start to Finish Project: Atlanta Falcon’s Wide Angle New Stadium Shot

Hi Gang: I got the opportunity to shoot the Atlanta Falcon’s new home: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and I posted the images, behind-the-shots, and the story of teh shoot, and pics from that game that night, over on Adobe Spark (here’s the link). Anyway, I had a number of people ask how I did the post processing, so I did the video below — taking you from the RAW out of camera image to the final image.

Hope you found that helpful. 🙂

Hey, it’s Worldwide Photo Walk Week!!!
Nearly 1,000 cities around the world — and the walk is this coming Saturday! If you haven’t joined a photo walk near you (it’s free), it’s not too late. Here’s the link to find a photo walk near you. It’s going to be a ton of fun!

I’m off to Lisbon, Portugal tomorrow, where I’ll be leading a photo walk on Saturday, then I’m off to Morocco. Can’t wait! Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see live stories and photos from the trip. 🙂

Have a great Monday everybody (I’ve got a photo shoot today for a book project – busy day before I head out). 🙂

    Love these walk-throughs, thanks so much. Never new HDR would work so well with only two images, that’s a big take-away for me, thank you!

    Hey Scott,

    Thanks for the tutorial!!! Question! Why did you leave out the original exposure when you did the HDR merge? I always thought you included all 3 photos in a HDR.

      Hi, Dennis: The Lightroom engineers said it’s not necessary to use all three exposures, and in fact, it works awesome if you just use those two exposures (plus, it’s faster). 🙂

        Hey thanks Scott!!! I’ll give that a try. I assume that would be the same for Adobe Camera Raw? I did noticed the HDR photo looked much better without the normal exposure. Most of the time they come out a little brighter.

        Thanks again,
