I’ve talked about exporting photos from Lightroom in the past, however in this video, I break it down in much more detail and show you guys how to create Export Presets. Export Presets are great for streamlining workflow so that you can consistently export photos with all of the settings you create for the export. This is great for exporting large quantities of files but can be helpful for even just exporting one at a time. That way, whenever you go to export your photos, you’ve already built presets that will save you time so that your photos are exported just the way you want them.Read More »
I almost always copy the contents of my memory cards to my hard drive and then sync the imported files and folders with Lightroom. Lightroom can manage this process, however after a big shoot, I’m often left with a lot of files and don’t want to tie-up Lightroom’s processing to import photos when I could be using that valuable time more efficiently. This means that I do the copy via the Finder and then sync the folder in Lightroom once the files are copied from the card.Read More »

I love the look of black and white photography. I started with shooting black and white film. Tri-X mostly in the beginning. I came to see the world in that way with the gradations of tonal contrast and how the light would fall in shadow and highlight. Black and white is about contrast. Color information makes up the gradations of tones, reds are darker, yellows lighter.
Unless I’m specifically shooting black and white film, I shoot RAW. And I see in color. The great thing about shooting RAW is that you can create a digital negative in a multitude of ways without ever compromising the original image. There is so much information in a RAW color file.Read More »

Jared and I just returned from an amazing European tour of the UK and Germany. We got to visit Manchester, London, and Cologne and despite only having a few days in each location, we got to meet some amazing people, eat great food, drink delicious beer and see amazing sights. The trip was mostly business, so we didn’t have much time for sightseeing, but I did pop off a few frames whenever possible.Read More »

In this video, I discuss the killer develop presets in Lightroom 4. There is such a variety of amazingly robust presets ranging from stunning black and white enhancements to incredible color and many in between.
I’ve discussed creating Lightroom presets in the past, however the ones bundled with LR4 should not be ignored. Even if you don’t decide to use them exactly, it’s fun to see how they can be used as a starting point for creatively editing your photos. You can even bundle presets as well as editing further and then creating your own presets based on where your edit takes you.Read More »
