Custom Presets

Have you wanted to look behind the scenes of my photos?

Custom Preset

Wondered how I edit my photos so quickly? Spend almost no time on social media yet regularly publish.

For the first time, I am offering my custom presets for you to purchase.

Yes, you read that right. If you like my photos, you can easily make your photos look the same. It is just like adding a filter. Only custom.

Go download a preset and add it to Lightroom today.

Camera 1 Workshop POV

The video below shows the Camera 1 Workshop Leyla and I attended last fall.

I shot the video using my GoPro Hero 4 which I mounted to the top of my Fuji XE-1. At some points you can see me focusing the Minolta 55mm f1.4 lens which I love on the Fuji. Leyla got to use my Sony A7 during the class. Speaking of classes, Nancy Merkling hosts some wonderful workshops. Make sure to check them out, they are sure to improve your photography I am lucky enough to teach two.

This year I plan to take a lot more workshops. I want to improve my video editing. I hope to travel more. I have set up a new Facebook Group, after experimenting on Slack and finding that it just didn’t work for most of us. 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.

Manual Mode

Manual Mode - Giovanni Arroyo Photography Lake in the Hills
For my birthday I got a new t-shirt. It shares my love of manual mode.

Now before you think this is a critique, let me say this you need to learn your modes. Yes you have heard me state this a ton, but you need to understand your camera. You need to know when to use Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual. Yes, you can take good photos using an automatic mode like Program, but to make great photos, you need to have an understanding of the other modes. Learn when to select and use the different modes. read more

How to edit with the free Nik Collection starting in Lightroom

The video above will share how I edit with the free Nik Collection plugins starting in Lightroom. Now that the Nik collection is free, I wanted to share how to actually access it inside of Lightroom CC. It is a bit different than how you would use a preset, but more like how to edit in Photoshop CC from Lightroom.
