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). 🙂

  1. 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!

  2. Hi Scott!

    Why are your videos in 720p and not in at least 1080p?

  3. 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,
