Good Morning Everybody,
Things are hopping this week at the studio with clients yesterday and today and the PhotoProExpo kicking off later this week. I got huge chunks of my wedding book wrapped this weekend so that's a good thing.
And, we are putting finishing touches on the Digital WakeUp Call - A New Dawn 2009 Tour. I should be able to point you to the web site by the end of the month. I'm also a volunteer for a lot of the PhotoProExpo activities so time is a bit short around here this week. I sure hope several of you will come on by the convention - it's a HUGE photographic talent fest this year. Here is the ProPhotoExpo link again if you missed it on an earlier post. The trade show looks to be very promising as well. It's a GREAT opportunity to hear some fantastic speakers and I encourage each and everyone of you to register and attend if you live with in the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia area.
Well, how about on with this week's edition of Technique Tuesday - I think you re going to enjoy it - here we go...
Technique Tuesday: Lightroom Lighting
So how many times didn't you get the image you wanted in the camera. Or you wish you would have tweaked the exposure/lighting a bit more in the camera? Or maybe there wasn't time during the wedding day to tweak the shot and you had to settle for a Lightroom fix after getting back to the studio?
Well today folks I offer the solution to these problems. Lightroom has some wonderful built in tools that literally let us put light on the scene exactly where we want it. We can easily control the densities and tonalities of the image transforming it dramatically to obtain a beautiful finished result.
In this tutorial, I'll take only a few minutes to take an image at first glance appears not that great. After a few Lightroom tweaks and judicious use of Lightroom 2's new tools, you will see the image transformed into a very cool looking portrait of the groom. Hit the PLAY button below and enjoy the show...
Hey gang, that's it for me today. I've got another episode of Analysis Of A Wedding Shoot planned for tomorrow, so be sure to tune in. See everybody then. -David
