Removing Objects/Distractions and Adding Punch in Photoshop

In this video, I share a trick for removing objects while maintaining edges in Photoshop as well as adding punch to an image with a Levels adjustment layer.

Geotagging Photos In Adobe Lightroom

Geotagging your photos in Lightroom isn’t exactly self-explanatory. In this video, I show how to add location info to your photos using a Garmin GPS unit and syncing the .GPX files to your photos in Lightroom through the Map module.

Rocky Mountain Pano

During a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park with my family, I decided to limit myself to just my Sony a7s (hand held) and a Sony Zeiss FE 55/1.8 lens. In this video, I show the process of shooting for a panorama and how to process it all together in post.

Bear Lake Start to Finish Edit

A subscriber saw this image after I shared it on social media, emailed me and asked to see me process it from start to finish. So here it is!

Turning Day To Night In Lightroom and Photoshop

In many ways, post processing is just as much a creative process as getting the shot in the field. The reality of landscape photography is that you don’t always get to photograph locations under optimal light. In this video, I show how to use Lightroom to process an image taken in broad daylight and give it a look that simulates twilight. Pretty nifty!

    Your video on why you changed from lee filter has got no audio with it

    • Wendy, seems to be working on my end? Did you get it working on yours? Check the volume box on the video itself, it may have been set to mute for some reason.

    You can take the photos! I am just restarting again with 100% disability from the VA. So, I am a little slow and lots of drugs. Thanks for all the information that you make available. Love your photos….nice to go and enjoy our beautiful earth while it lasts! Man is making a mess out of it…..oh well, no surprise there. Thanks again

    James,
    Is it possible that the spring latch on the filter holder was installed backward, and could be removed, reversed, and reinstalled correctly?

    • Hey there, it can’t be flipped around because of the angle it’s at and how it fits into the lens adapter. LEE reached out to me at one point and admitted it’s a known issue they are working on. I’m sure it will be fixed with the next gen filter holder.

    I’m missing the video for Bear Lake Start to Finish Edit. I really want to see this!

    • Hey Sandra! Do you see it now? The page is acting a bit weird and trying to figure out why. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Shane
