I’m in Moab, Utah getting ready to teach the Spring in Arches workshop which starts on Sunday. However, not wanting to forget all of you who couldn’t make the workshop , I did manage to record another Lightroom video tutorial before I left.
Also, because much of my work is printed, I added a section at the end where I show you the final print on Canson Platine Fibre Rag paper, which is my current favorite. There’s something about the physical nature of a print that makes an image come to life for me, and this image definitely looks better on paper. I think it’s the subtle detail that doesn’t really come across on a monitor.
As always, thanks for the support, and please leave your feedback and comments below. Enjoy the video.
Highlands Dawn Canon 1DS Mk III, 1/6 sec @f/16, ISO 100, 19mm
It’s been a while since I’ve made a Lightroom video tutorial, and I do plan on creating these more regularly based on feedback from many of you. So here’s one of a recent image I made right here in the Hudson Valley – “Highlands Dawn.” A big part of my workflow is having a clear vision of what the final print will look like, and that’s something I find extremely important when processing RAW files. Knowing why you’re making an adjustment, or having a sense of what you want the image to convey will help tremendously when making critical decisions in the processing and overall workflow.
I hope this tutorial helps you think about these things when you’re processing your own images, and improves both your workflow and final result. Please leave any comments or questions below – the feedback helps me for future tutorials, and I’m always willing to help as much as I can.
I’m very particular about camera backpacks, and I’ve used many over the years. I’ve been a huge fan of Gura Gear bags ever since I bought my first model, the Kiboko 30L a few years ago. They continue to refine their bags and introduce new models which cater to what photographers truly need in the field. In this in-depth video review, I go over why I love the Bataflae 26L and recommend it highly to anyone looking for a great all around backpack.
Of course, these are only my opinions, and there are some good options from other manufacturers. But for me, this backpack just works.
Also, if you order one from Out Door Photo Gear, you can get a 10% discount on any bag including this one using the code RRJBAG10.
I finally finished a new video interview for the Beyond the Lens Photo Workshops. I talk about my approach to teaching, why I think our workshops are unique, and what I hope every student gets out of our time together. There’s also some footage I shot on my travels last year. Make sure to watch […]
In this episode of the Beyond the Lens Video Podcast, I review a couple of products I really like and use regularly. The GuraGear Kiboko 22L+ backpack, which is my go to bag for most of my outings, and some quick release adapters from Xume which really simplify the whole hassle of adding and removing […]
