Each week on FroKnowsPhoto.com Greg and I try our hand at editing a RAW file that a reader sends in. If you are interested in having us edit your file please e mail one file to FroKnowsPhoto@gmail.com.
Greg and I will both tweak the RAW file in Adobe Lightroom without knowing how the other is editing the file. This is a great way for you to see the different techniques we use for editing our files.
You can see the final images right here from this weeks RAW File.

The Skype line is open, feel FREE to call me at JAREDPOLIN on skype (from Richboro) and ask your photo related questions.
This weeks photo of the week focuses on an image that was captured using one off camera flash. I go into the very basics of how and where we set the flash for this image to show you the dimension that it creates.
You can see how thick the final image is in terms of contrast and tone which is something I look for in my final images.
Greg and I are working on a full Flash Curriculum that will take us from the very basics of understand flash photography to full studio set ups.

BACKUP YOUR PHOTOS.
I’ve wanted to rant about this for quite a while. You MUST have at least two copies of your photos to consider them safe. Just copying them to the non-OS drive on your computer (usually an external drive) is not good enough. You need to have a primary drive AND A BACKUP AT A BARE MINIMUM.
Please, I implore you, go purchase a backup drive right now. I guarantee your hard drive will fail….eventually. Be safe and don’t lose your memories!
Here are a few….Backup Hard Drives from Amazon.com
BTW stick around for a while…I smell something odd around 1:30…
