Adobe Education Trainer

After 8 weeks of course work this summer, I am proud to say I am now official an Adobe Education Trainer. The class was a lot more difficult than I had initial anticipated. I had considered dropping out after taking a family vacation, but glad I completed all the work.

Now when taking my Lightroom workshop, you are taking it from an Adobe Education Trainer.

A Little Lightroom Voodoo

Sometimes it feels like what I do in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, is mysterious or a little like voodoo. Each workshop that I teach reminds me how little people realize goes into a finished photo. How much difference there actually is between the photo I took and the one I share.

Pressing the shutter just starts the process. I don’t think that the photo is finished until I have edited, and at the very least shared it on social media. Most of the time I will make a print and once that happens the photo is done. read more

Follow me on a shoot

Coming this summer, I will be making video’s of me shooting on the street. I think this will be an interesting way for you to see what I see in an all new way. What makes me pull the camera up to my eye, what makes me press the shutter and why I capture certain things.

You can learn from me in an all new way. I will be using this setup on all my cameras, 35mm, digital, medium format and hopefully polaroid. Be ready for an all new 1st person street photography experience.

Would you like to check out some of my photography in person? Don’t miss this event next week! read more

Lightroom 5 Information Overlay

During my last Simply Learn | Adobe Photoshop Lightroom  workshop I was asked how I was showing the information overlay in Lightroom. This allows me to quickly see the pixel dimensions, file name and taken on date. It can also show iso and aperture settings as well. I couldn’t remember exactly where the option to turn the overlay was, but I took a note and promised to share it when I got home.  Here is the short video that show just how quickly and easily it is to turn this option on in Lightroom. read more
