Martin Evening explains the Lightroom catalog | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, like other database-powered image managers requires you to first import images into a catalog before you can modify them in any way. This requirement is a continual source of confusion for new users.

Creatively Editing an Ordinary Landscape Image in LR4 | DIYPhotography.net

Creatively Editing an Ordinary Landscape Image in LR4 | DIYPhotography.net | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

A while back I shared that fact that I was enjoying SLR Lounge's A-Z Lightroom video tutorials. One of the chapters I liked most is dealt with tweaking and adjusting an image which was hard to expose, turning it into a great landscape image. I asked Post Production Pye and the team over at SLRL for a tutorial on that technique which they gladly shared.

HDR Workflow for the rest of us

HDR Workflow for the rest of us | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it

"Alexandre Buisse in A Plea for HDR said it all. He speaks for me. One of my favourite photographic subjects is church interiors (no castles in this part of the world), and HDR is indispensable. But I don’t want my pictures to look like HDR. And I also want HDR to be just another part of my toolbox. Does anyone remember as far back as 2003? That was when we corrected exposure using multiple layers and blending modes in Photoshop, and when we created “fill flash” using clever masks. Now with Lightroom there are simple sliders for them all and more. I think of HDR as an extreme version of Lightroom’s Fill Light and Recovery combined, just a method to get back what I saw and I know was there. Until the “HDR slider” arrives I would like to have something similar and simple.

The tutorial is divided into two parts.

In the first part I will look at the problem of consistent colours in Photomatix Pro, and how it can be solved. The solution applies to any HDR program that creates unnatural but consistent colours. In the second part I will present a workflow “for the rest of us”, where I use what I found in the first part to effortlessly create a consistent suite of HDR images from one shoot – the HDR slider."

Portrait Editing: Before and After

Portrait Editing: Before and After | Photography Gear News | Scoop.it
In this article, I will show you an example of how I process portraits (before and after) and what my portrait editing workflow is like.
Many of our readers ask how I post-process my images for my wedding blog and I decided to put together a quick example. Obviously, every image is different, so while some photos take very little of my time in Lightroom, others might take a while to process in Lightroom and Photoshop. This image in particular is from our recent “Bridesmaids Photoshoot“, a collaborative effort by many talented individuals in Colorado.
