Lightroom Workflow : Good to Great

LR-Workflow-1_thumb.jpg

I get questions all the time about my workflow, and in this tutorial I’m answering some specific questions I got related to some recent bird photos I posted on my Flickr photostream. Some other photographers had been with me and struggled to capture images in the same location and time. In addition to the workflow I present in this video, I’ll add some additional tips

Its a pleasure to tell you that we’ve got another workshop coming up!

The day includes taking photos around parts of the cathedral not normally open to the public (including the roof!) and a light lunch tuition and support form two teachers, a demonstration of post processing with emphasis will be on having fun and making new friends.

Lightroom 5 – Keyboard Shortcuts

Everybody loves keyboard shortcuts, and today on TipSquirrel, we have Lightroom 5 Keyboard Shortcuts for you!

Learning keyboard shortcuts can help boost your productivity and can be the key to a smooth and consistent workflow. In addition, you’re taking some of the work away from your mouse, and that can be a benefit if you tend to suffer from repetitive motion stress.

There are a few Lightroom 5 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know – for example, the big three in my mind are “G, E, D” (for grid view, loupe view, and develop module view). And there’s “R” for the crop tool. But there are oh, so many more Lightroom 5 keyboard shortcuts.

Taking the Photoshop Adobe Certified Expert Exam

I was recently asked about becoming an Adobe Certified Expert and what I think is the best study tools, so I thought I’d make it the subject of my post this week.

I’m not going to lie to you, taking the exam was a nerve-racking experience. I’ve taken it a few times now and I can’t say it gets any easier, but I like doing it, and I certainly like getting the results (so far).

Lightroom Mobile Quick Setup Guide

As you may have noticed, Adobe has just released Lightroom 5.4, along with the new Lightroom Mobile for iPad. Lightroom mobile extends your workflow beyond the desktop, and onto your iPad, where you can review, rate and even edit your images, and have the changes synchronized automatically back to your main catalog.

Lightroom uses the Creative Cloud storage services as the hub for this synchronization, and as a result, you must be a member of one of the subscription services for this to work, including any of the Creative Cloud plans, or the Photoshop Photography Program. The iPad app is completely free, so this is just another benefit of the Creative Cloud subscription.

Photoshop Rounded Rectangles and Bender From Futurama

I recently created this Bender from Futurama as an exercise for a live class and posted the result on line. There was some interest so I thought I’d share it with all my TipSquirrel friends.

As mentioned in the video, the file is available, with all the finished layers and guides. You’ll find it beneath the video in the ‘Media locker’. All this is is a way to share the post and keep the content free to all.
