Metering the Light

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

Last month, I wrote a basic article on exposure or how the camera’s controls capture an exposure. Exposure is best with metered light. How does your camera see the light? How is it measured? Metering light is different from Focus. Metering the light is done to get the best exposure for the image. The best […]

Lightroom into Instagram

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

By Douglas Wade This month I want to write on the integration of Lightroom with a photography social network called Instagram, which is a photo-sharing application for phones. It allows you to share your images and videos publicly or privately. It even allows direct messaging. It is owned by Facebook, so the integrations to Facebook […]

Lightroom Smart Collections

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

Lightroom Smart Collections By Douglas Wade I love when Lightroom does organization for me in an automated way. One such way is the Smart Collections. There are two types of collections, Smart and Regular Collections.

Lightroom – Creating Copyright/ Contact Preset

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

When I work with images for the newsletter and website, I see too many images are lacking metadata such as Artist (Creator) name and Copyright data. I think it is a must to have that data on all your images that you release into the wild, such as LPA, S4C, PSA, social media like Facebook, […]

Lightroom – Before and After

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

Before and After By Douglas Wade When I talk to people about Lightroom there are two things that seem hard to believe; the first is Lightroom is non-destructive, meaning that the original file is never changed, all changes are either added inside the file in a special place, or Lightroom writes an external sidecar file.

Lightroom and HDR

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

By Douglas Wade HDR Merge was introduced in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6. High Dynamic Range (HDR) has been around for some time, and at one point people were processing lots of images that took on a “grunge” look – a look that seems over-processed in my opinion. It seemed to be more gimmick-like and […]

So Many Clubs

In Blog By douglaspaulwade

By Douglas Wade I have a confession to make. I just started my third year of being the President of LPA and I am still learning about the relationships between LPA, S4C, and PSA. I figure that if I do not know, then most likely, you may not know either. With the help of Nan Carder, Bonnie J. […]
