Lightroom Tutorial | Changing the crop overlay

The video below has my “1st” of many Lightroom Tutorials. I plan to share a short video talking about a specific action regularly. This week we will be touching on the Crop Overlay Tool. How can I change it?

There are many reasons why you may want to change the tool, but the main one I can think of is to help out with different compositional elements. Move away from the rule of thirds and try to compose an image to one of the other “rules”

You will need a basic understanding of Lightroom for this to be helpful. Take a workshop! read more

Going in a new direction

I’ve decided that my blog will be heading in a new direction

I’m going to focus my future blog posts on tutorials and particularly Lightroom.

I originally started my blog to help out my writing skills. I have tried to focus on sharing some of my thought processes were for capturing photos. I have found that as the years have passed I am actually doing more video tutorials.

The video tutorials are also getting more attention on Youtube, driving more traffic to my website. From today on I am planning to share video tutorials.

I will do my best to address questions and requests. read more

Lightroom Export to WordPress Tutorial 

A few weeks ago the folks at Automattic (better know as the WordPress company) released a plugin for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This plugin lets you export directly from Lightroom to your WordPress media gallery.

This saves a step in my Lightroom workflow. As you know I want to be as efficient as possible, so I will take anything that lets me remove a step.

You can download the plugin here: https://apps.wordpress.com/lightroom/

Don’t forget you can always follow along, pause, repeat and easily replicate any of the tutorial steps I take. read more

Combining Lightroom Catalogs Tutorial

Below you will find a short video tutorial for combining Adobe Photoshop Lightroom catalogs.

As many of you know, during my Lightroom workshops, I suggest starting a new catalog each calendar year. Well this year I am going to be trying something different. I am not going to be creating a new catalog. Instead I am going to try working from a master catalog. I will be continuing my organization structure from there on. During class I plan on sharing my new workflow. I am constantly learning, adjusting and changing how I work in Lightroom. Hopefully I can make Lightroom easier for you. read more

Fine tuning my Lightroom workflow

I am constantly fine tuning my Lightroom workflow.

Fine tuning my Lightroom workflow
I purchased a midi controller which I mapped to different sliders in the Lightroom develop module.

Now with keyboard shortcuts, pen tablet and the midi controller I rarely have to touch a mouse. My workflow has been refined more, I am spending less time in Lightroom and less time on the computer.

Want to learn more about my Adobe Photoshop Lightroom workflow? Join me for this workshop.
