  • The new graduated filter brush in Lightroom 6/CC — MoreThanWords.be
    CC feature that especially landscape photographers will love But if you re more into shooting portraits make sure to watch the video too because the technique I describe works just as well with the Radial filter The Auto Mask feature I explain in the video works best if the area you re painting over is relatively similar in color and that colour is different enough from the background colour By the way there s an even faster way to make custom graduated filters like this using Nik Software s Color Efex Pro I explain all about that in this blog post which coincidentally features the same sample image If you want to know all about all of the other improvements in Lightroom 6 CC you can check out my 100 page Lightroom 6 up to Speed eBook which is now also available as a bundle with my 300 page Lightroom 5 Unmasked eBook You may also enjoy these lightroom related blogposts Jan 12 2016 Lightroom Reviews English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jan 12 2016 Lightroom Reviews English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Review David Duchemin s After The Camera Lightroom video tutorial Jan 12 2016 Lightroom Reviews English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jan 12 2016 Lightroom Reviews English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jan 12 2016 Lightroom Reviews English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jan 12 2016 Lightroom Reviews English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Oct 22 2015 Lightroom Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde 1 Comment Oct 22 2015 Lightroom Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde 1 Comment Fading Lightroom presets with The Fader Oct 22 2015 Lightroom Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde 1 Comment Oct 22 2015 Lightroom Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde 1 Comment Oct 22 2015 Lightroom Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde 1 Comment Oct 22 2015 Lightroom Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde 1 Comment Sep 11 2015 Lightroom Nik Software Photoshop Viveza Lightroom Photoshop Exposure English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Sep 11 2015 Lightroom Nik Software Photoshop Viveza Lightroom Photoshop Exposure English Piet Van den Eynde Comment An advanced Smart Filter workflow with Alien Skin Exposure and Nik Software Viveza Sep 11 2015 Lightroom Nik Software Photoshop Viveza Lightroom Photoshop Exposure English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Sep 11 2015 Lightroom Nik Software Photoshop Viveza Lightroom Photoshop Exposure English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Sep 11 2015 Lightroom Nik Software Photoshop Viveza Lightroom Photoshop Exposure English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Sep 11 2015 Lightroom Nik Software Photoshop Viveza Lightroom Photoshop Exposure English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jun 29 2015 Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jun 29 2015 Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde Comment The new graduated filter brush in Lightroom 6 CC Jun 29 2015 Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jun 29 2015 Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jun 29 2015 Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jun 29 2015 Lightroom English Piet Van den Eynde Comment Jun

  • Review: Western Digital WD My Passport Pro for Mac. The ultimate portable harddrive for photographers? — MoreThanWords.be
    a file from one drive it s automatically gone from the second too It s the latter option which makes the drive interesting for photographers who generally are paranoid or should be about losing their precious images Scenario 1 using the drive as a temporary drive while traveling I see two big scenarios in which this drive really shines the first is as a travel drive to store your photographs and other essential data on while you re traveling This means the setup would look something like this This is the scenario I follow when I m traveling using Lightroom I ll import my images from the SD card to the My Passport Pro My Catalog and Previews are on an external 512 GB Angelbird SSD drive When Lightroom prompts me to back up the catalog when I quit it I altnernate that backup between the internal drive of my laptop and the WD My Passport Pro This adds an extra layer of security for my Catalog as I will always have a fairly recent version in at least two extra locations I only backup the catalog itself by the way not the previews as they are too bulky and can always be re rendered if necessary If your Lightroom Catalog is not as big as mine I have over 130 000 images in it you could also put the Catalog Previews and Smart Previews on the internal drive of your laptop or on the My Passport Pro as well Lightroom will just run slower because of the slower read and write speeds of this type of drive compared to solid state memory Ultimately you re the only judge of whether slower still means fast enough or too slow Especially if you re using a MacBook Air for traveling due to its limited internal hard drive space I d recommend against putting the catalog and previews on the internal drive Additional security precautions while traveling Having my images and a backup of my Lightroom catalog on the My Passport Pro protects me against drive failure but it does not protect me against theft or loss of the drive obviously That s why I never reformat my memory cards while I m traveling memory cards are cheap so I just bring plenty of them By not reformatting them I have an extra super light backup which I can easily take with me I also make it a habit never to leave the My Passport Pro and my laptop unattended together like in the hotel room I will always carry one of them with me That s also an advantage of the 2 TB version over the 4 TB version it s slightly lighter and quite a lot smaller If the internet is fast enough wherever I m traveling I ll try to upload my best pictures of the trip say the 5 star ones to Dropbox as yet an extra layer of security When I m back home I will connect my catalog drive and the WD My Passport Pro to my desktop computer and using Lightroom I will transfer the files over to my main storage system currently a Drobo 5D Thunderbolt although I have been investigating the options of NAS storage freeing up room on the My Passport Pro for the next trip Scenario 2 using the drive as your only dedicated photo drive For this workflow I would recommend the 4 TB version because you never can have enough storage right In this case you just use the My Passport Pro as a convenient small Raid device with the added benefit that should you ever want to take it with you it s small and light enough to do so This gives you 2 TB of mirrored hard drive space In the case of my Fujifilm Raw files which weigh about 30 MB per image this means I could safely store some 66 000 images on the 4 TB version That s a lot of images If you re planning on organizing and storing more images than that you re probably better of using a bigger heavier and more expensive Raid System or NAS system UPDATE SCENARIO 3 See Mike s comment for a possible third scenario I hadn t thought of myself Pricing As you might expect from the feature list these drives aren t cheap If you re more of the DIY variety you could get two separate drives and use separate backup software to do something similar Personally I prefer to avoid hassling with too much gear and software so I prefer to pay a premium for the portability and the convenience of the WD My Passport Pro The 2 TB version will set you back some 289 that s at Dutch online retailer Bol com while the 4 TB version if you re lucky enough to find a dealer that has them in stock retails for about 432 As often is the case it pays to surf around a bit and also if you re reading this from the US consider yourself lucky as prices are cheaper there The verdict If you re a photographer using a Mac the My Passport Pro is a very convenient tool to add an extra layer of security in your photography workflow whether you re on the go or in your studio The 2 TB version is very compact for its features and although not exactly shirt pocketable even the 4 TB version is still easily transportable I ve been using the 2 TB version for over a year now and other than one of the rubber feet getting MIA which I replaced by a bit of Sugru it has performed flawlessly Highly recommended The WD My Passport Wireless is another drive that can be of interest to photographers as it features a built in SD Card Reader By the way if you re mainly needing an external drive to back up travel images to Western Digital has

  • Creating the 'Grungy Retro' style in Lightroom — MoreThanWords.be
    adjustments help to make the image really shine This image was finished with three local adjustments a graduated filter starting from the bottom right corner set to positive Clarity and negative Highlights to accentuate the concrete even more a brush with negative Exposure and negative Highlights to tone down the disturbingly bright triangle under the skate and finally a brush with positive Shadows and positive Exposure to further lighten up the skater somewhat 7 Saving your work as a develop preset Never do the same work twice in Lightroom Instead turn your efforts into a preset Of course you can save this look as a preset so you can apply it to other comparable images It s important to only select the effects that are indispensable for the look you are after not the adjustments that were unique to this image such as the exposure increase in step 2 8 Applying to other images The great thing about Lightroom presets is that you can preview them in the Navigator Panel So you only click and apply them when the preview looks nice The nice thing about presets is that you can quickly apply them to other images The Navigator window at the top of the Develop module s left panel already gives you a clue as to how the image would look with that effect applied to it Of course the more the image resembles the original image in terms of tonality and atmosphere the better the effect will be Sometimes you have to tweak the result slightly but still presets can not only save you lots of time they can also make images that were shot at entirely different moments in entirely different locations visually match which can be a good thing if you want to use these images together in a photo album or an exhibition This is only one way to create such a vintage effect By experimenting or Googling Lightroom vintage preset you can find lots more I quite like Kevin Kubota s Vintage Delish set of Lightroom presets and if you re more into the faded vintage look then I absolutely recommend Stu Maschwitz Prolost Bespoke Vintage preset s If you re into black and white images check out my Lightroom Black White preset package 9 Alternatives If you don t have the patience for this technique or if all you want is ready to go solutions to achieve these kinds of effects there is a slew of plug ins that can help you Alien Skin Exposure and DxO FilmPack are specifically aimed at simulating old analog films Color Efex Pro 4 by Nik Software and Perfect Effects by onOne Software offer these kinds of looks as a subset of a larger array of filters and effects This blogpost is an adapted excerpt from my Lightroom 5 Up to Speed eBook which offers over 300 pages of Lightroom training content For a limited time you can get Lightroom 5 Unmasked and my latest eBook Lightroom

  • Review: David Duchemin's "After The Camera" Lightroom video tutorial — MoreThanWords.be
    David also rightly mentions the importance of backing up and explains his own simple but effective workflow Editing your work As of Chapter 4 we dive into the meat of the videos the first couple are about the editing some say culling process how do you separate the wheat from the chaff The answer lies again in what your intent your vision is David talks about the importance of having a project even an imaginary one in mind when you go through your images Maximising mood Minimising Distractions The next chapters are about Maximising mood and Minimising distractions and to me that s really the core of what good post processing should be about good postproduction should make your viewers feel what you felt when you were at the scene while minimizing the uninteresting details Drawing the Eye The bulk of the remaining videos are about the photographic principles what pulls and pushes the eye and the tools in Lightroom that you can use to apply those principles Whether you work with a Radial Filter or the Adjustment Brush Local adjustments help to draw the eye to where YOU want it to be I m happy to see that David gives a lot of attention to local adjustments as well Before and Afters Everybody loves a good Before After and I m not different That s why I especially liked the 6 cases studies in which you get to follow along with 6 images and see the principles and the techniques applied But again that s the difference between this tutorial and many others it s as much about the why as it is about the how Or to use David s terms as much about the artist as it is about the geek Final chapters The final videos are about the importance of sharing your work and speeding up your workflow by using presets so that you have more time to do what you love most that is if that s what you love most go out and shoot Conclusion As a bonus you get David s Lightroom presets pack a 10 value Every once in while a video tutorial comes along where I think I wish I made that Well this is one of those tutorials If you re a beginning Lightroom user I very much recommend this course But even or maybe especially if you re already more advanced and you know what all the buttons do of the Lightroom cockpit do but you feel like no one ever told you where to fly the bloody plane to you will learn a lot from this video series After the Camera is very reasonably priced at 40 VAT in Europe and until January 13 there s a 25 percent discount On top of that you also get David duChemin s Lightroom own presets a 10 value as a bonus After The Camera is available here at Craft Vision com Still not entirely convinced Watch the trailer below RELATED

  • Using the Angelbird 512 GB SSD2go pocket as a Catalog Drive with Lightroom — MoreThanWords.be
    regular Previews and the Smart Previews on a fast external drive I call this the ECD for External Catalog Drive such as the Angelbird SSD2go pocket The images themselves can then reside on the internal drive of your desktop computer or on yet another external drive normally connected to that desktop computer You then simply connect the ECD to the computer you want to work on at that moment On your desktop computer you will be working on the originals on your laptop you will be working on the Smart Previews In my personal workflow my Lightroom catalog contains references to some 130 000 images These are on a Drobo 5D where they take about 4 TB of hard drive space The catalog Previews and Smart Previews are on an external 512 GB SSD2go pocket The Smart Previews weigh only about 100 GB I can control the size of the regular Previews which are larger than the Smart Previews via the options in the File Handling tab found under Lightroom Catalog Settings Mac or Edit Catalog Settings Windows When I want to work on my laptop I will quit Lightroom on my desktop computer disconnect the ECD connect it to the laptop start up Lightroom open the catalog from the ECD and work on that When I m finished working on the laptop I will quit Lightroom disconnect the ECD reconnect to the desktop start up Lightroom open the catalog from the ECD and all the edits I ve made while working on my laptop will automatically be transferred to the high resolution originals on my Drobo POWER TIP If you also put the Mac and Windows trial versions of Lightroom 5 which you can download from the Adobe website in a folder on your ECD then you can literally open your catalog anywhere in the world even if you don t have your own computer on hand just install the trial version on any compatible computer and you can get started Adding a Work in Progress folder to the mix If you have some spare space on your ECD you can add a Work in Progress folder this is handy to store your latest images or for example images you shoot while traveling Once I no longer need the high resolution original raw files on the ECD I simply move them in Lightroom to my Drobo making room on the ECD for new work in progress images Technically my Lightroom Catalog and previews could fit on a 256 GB model yet I opted for the larger size for two reasons it gives me some extra headroom for when my catalog grows each extra file I import means I need to put about a 5 MB 1 1 preview and a 1 5 MB Smart Preview on the ECD but it also allows me to put a Work in Progress folder on the ECD this is especially useful if you want to be able to edit files not only in Lightroom but also in Photoshop Smart Previews can only be edited in Lightroom So I make it a habit to import recent files to a Work in Progress folder on the Angelbird SSD2go pocket This allows me to edit them in Photoshop or plug ins even when I m on my laptop Catalog Backups One thing to watch out for is your catalog backup make sure that you re even more rigorous than otherwise when it comes to making backups because external drives of course run a higher risk of getting lost or stolen or in the case of the classical rotating drives to fail So save your catalog backups on the internal drive of the desktop or laptop or alternating between both and verify in the back up dialog window whether Lightroom is indeed backing up to the correct drive Now that Lightroom 6 compresses your catalog backups this extra security costs you even less in terms of storage space Isn t Dropbox an alternative An alternative to using an ECD would be to store your catalog and the Previews and Smart Previews on Dropbox However that not only requires a paid subscription the free accounts are too small to store anything but a minute catalog and moreover it requires rigourous attention to waiting for your catalog to sync across your systems before opening it up on the other machine Otherwise you risk opening an outdated catalog and the longer it takes to realize that the bigger mess you re in Also synching larger catalogs and previews can take quite a while Therefore the Dropbox route is one I don t personally use nor particularly recommend A little bit of Velcro goes a long way I ve added some Velcro to the back of my MacBook s protective cover and to the back of the SSD2go This way I can use and move my laptop around without worrying about the drive falling Even though as mentioned before the Angelbird s USB cables fit firmly in the USB port I still want to avoid unnecessary mishandling of that port That s why I ve added some velcro on the Angelbird s back as well as on my laptop s protective cover They loose some of their design cool but it s just easier to transport both through the house as I go from one room to another Conclusion For anyone looking for a fast and hassle free external drive to put their Lightroom catalog on so they can use it in a multi computer setup the Angelbird SSD2go pocket is a great choice It exists in 3 sizes up to 512 GB Because you only store the catalog itself the previews and the smart previews those capacities will get you a long way Even if you don t need the full 512 GB right now having some extra room could be handy because you can use it to store your Work in Progress as well Add to that the light
