Using Lightroom Presets

If you have recently started using Lightroom, or maybe have been using it for some time but not yet got fully to grips with it, this tutorial from e-photozine, may prove of value.

Tutorial On Using Lightroom Presets - Peter Bargh explains how Lightroom presets can save you time when making similar changes to your photos. Also how they let you perform and repeat advanced colourising and vignetting effects as well as apply treatments perfected by other users.

Lightroom has a useful option to save a series of adjustments / filters as a preset so you can reapply those settings to other photos later. 

These presets appear on the left of the screen when you're in the Develop module.

By default the program installs Lightroom's ready made collection of presets which includes popular ones such as infrared, various vignettes, antique or split toning and a wide range of black & white contrast control options. 

Hovering over the link on the left-hand menu shows the effect of the preset on your photo in the small preview window above the menu.

Start a Personal Photography Project

If, like me, you sometimes find yourself sitting in your armchair waiting for inspiration on what to photograph next, why not challenge yourself, by undertaking a Personal Photography project. This article on Digital Photography School,  by Neha Singh from may help inspire you!

A Personal Photography project is a way for a photographer to showcase their passion for something. Or it can just be a way to bring structure to one’s photography hobby. It can be a great way to challenge the limits of one’s skills. Or it can be a great way to bring focus to one’s photography efforts. For amateur photographers, it can be a unique way to build an awesome portfolio. For professional photographers, it can be a truly rejuvenating experience. Personal Photography projects can take you places and make an impact. Most of all, they can be a lot of fun. Fun really is the keyword. A personal photography project will be great only if the photographer is having fun.

A Personal Photography project is just a commitment to self (not very different than committing to jog for an hour everyday). There are no rules on how to go about it. You can choose any subject and define any rules for your photography project. With this article, my attempt is to inspire you with famous examples of Personal Photography projects and then provide a few best practices & guidelines you can use in your own project. I end with some ideas that I would love to see people out there execute.

10 Tips for Enjoying a Photo Walk

This guest post on Digital Photo School by Tiffany Joyce, gives her ten tips for enjoying a photo walk.

There are a few reasons why I think photo walks are a great idea. Personally, my sense of creativity is boosted by movement and exposure to changing scenery. When I’m by myself I see my surroundings from a different perspective. When I’m with a group of people I enjoy seeing things from their perspective. I am challenged to use my photographic skills and tools in a different way and react to changing situations. At the end of the walk I take pride in the new discoveries that I’ve made.

This year I’m joining Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk ( It’s a global endeavor, and it can seem intimidating to wander a locale with a group of 49 other photographers, most of whom you’ve probably never met. I’m looking forward to meeting so many new people, but it’s also perfectly okay to start much smaller. The great thing about enjoying a photo walk is that it doesn’t have to be a formal, structured occasion. You can be by yourself or with a group of friends. You can wander streets you’re deeply familiar with, or explore an area that is brand new to you. The whole point is to get you out there, exploring your surroundings, exercising your creativity and taking pictures.

With that in mind, here are ten tips to enjoy photo walks 10 Tips for Enjoying a Photo Walk

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 Review

This review of the Lumix DMC-G5  especially for Digital Photo School, is by Barrie Smith, an experienced writer/photographer currently published in Australian Macworld, Auscam and other magazines in Australia and overseas.

It’s easy to see that mirrorless cameras have swamped the market, with models from Panasonic, Sony, Pentax, Olympus — even Canon! — and others, kicking the heels of the budget DSLRs.

Buyers like the small size, ease of use and access to a range of high quality lenses; in the case of this camera, you can slip on Leica’s well-regarded optics (with an adaptor) as well as those produced by Olympus, Voigtlander (Cosina), Carl Zeiss, Schneider and Sigma.

So it was with barely concealed delight that I took hold of the DMC-G5, successor to the G3 model.

Street Photography Tips at Night

Earlier in the month, we published an article giving "7 steps to success" in street photography. Today we follow it up with tips on taking street photos at night from Juan Jose Reyes.

Taking pictures at night gives an image a completely different feel because it captures different stories of daily life, sometimes more dramatic than the ones captured during the day. There is also a whole new cast of characters at night that make taking pictures on the streets after dark an even more adventurous experience in street photography.

Just by decreasing the available light we increase the element of mystery in the image. Don’t get me wrong, it could still be an average image. Just because it was taken at night the picture won’t magically become a great photograph, but at least it might become a little bit more interesting, it may make the viewer ask just a few more questions. And depending on where you are it may even add an element of danger.

Follow the link to read the rest of the article: Street Photography Tips at Night – PictureCorrect.

This new book, due to published next month, is well worth looking at if you are interested in Street Photography.

The New Street Photographer's Manifesto

Capture the Reality of Your Urban Surroundings. The genre of choice of some of photographys greats, from Henri Cartier-Bresson onwards, street photography is now experiencing a renaissance in the 21st century, as the omnipresence of digital cameras allows us all to seize the moment and shoot whenever and wherever we like - and at the same time, a resurgence of interest in lo-tech and retro film cameras highlights their portability and spontaneity. 

This book will introduce you to the history of the street photographer, as well as the work of some of the modern greats, and show you how you can capture pictures in the spirit of the street tradition with whatever camera youre able to lay your hands on.

Aperture Priority vs Shutter Priority on DSLR Cameras

If you are unsure whether to shoot in Aperture or Shutter Priority mode, this article by Dan Losowski for Picture Correct gives guidance on which one to use and when.

The many modes modern cameras can shoot in can sometimes overwhelm their owner. When setting up to take a picture, many DSLR users will use either Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority. Both shooting modes are great for specific scenarios. I’m going to help you figure out where you should apply them.

First, what is Aperture and what is Shutter Speed? I could (and will) write a whole article on each of these items, but for now let’s just keep it simple. Aperture is essentially the size of the optic opening. It controls the amount of light let in to the camera.

Night Photography: Try It! – PictureCorrect

If you haven't taken your camera out at night, check out this article from Picture Correct and see how you can take some great shots at night.

Why do so many casual and amateur photographers shy away from taking pictures once the sun goes down? Haven’t they seen the great pictures taken at night by other photographers? Maybe they think those type pictures can only be made by professional photographers with thousands of dollars worth of equipment. Well that line of thinking is not true at all.

Taking night shots is not as difficult as some may think. If you have a camera, a tripod, and a subject you can take some great night shots. That is, as long as there is some light available. It can be artificial light, moonlight, or ambient light from the atmosphere just after sunset.

If after reading this article you wish to take your night time photography to the next level, have a look at this book.

Night Photography: Finding your way in the dark

Night photographers have one big thing in common: a true love of the dark. 

Rather than looking at night photography as an extension of daytime shooting with added complications, they embrace the unique challenges of nocturnal photography for the tremendous wealth of creative opportunities it offers. 

That's just what this book does. But if the idea of setting out into the deep, dark night with just your camera (and maybe a cup of coffee) gets your creative juices flowing, dive right in. Lance Keimig, one of the premier experts on night photography, has put together a comprehensive reference that will show you ways to capture images you never thought possible. 

If you have some experience with photography and have always wanted to try shooting at night, you'll learn the basics for film or digital shooting. If you're already a seasoned pro, you'll learn to use sophisticated techniques such as light painting and drawing, stacking images to create long star trails, and more. A chapter on the history of night photography describes the materials and processes that made night photography possible, and introduces the photographers who have defined night photography as an artistic medium. 

A chapter on how to use popular software packages such as Lightroom and Photoshop specifically with night time shots shows you how to make the final adjustments to your nocturnal creations. In this book you'll find history, theory, and lots of practical instruction on technique, all illustrated with clear, concise examples, diagrams and charts that reinforce the text, and inspiring color and black and white images from the author and other luminaries in the field, including Scott Martin, Dan Burkholder, Tom Paiva, Troy Paiva, Christian Waeber, Jens Warnecke and Cenci Goepel, with Foreword by Steve Harper.

8 Tips for Long Exposure Photography

This is an informative article from Elliot Hook, a wildlife and landscape photographer based in Hertfordshire, UK, on Digital Photo School on the use of ND filters in long exposure landscape photography.

Long exposure photography has become very popular in the last couple of years, getting a lot of coverage in landscape photography magazines and on photo sharing websites. With the ever-increasing number of options for 10-stop neutral density (ND) filters on the market, there has never been a better time to give it a go.

However, taking photographs when using such high-density filters gives rise to a set of problems that you may not have previously considered, so this article is intended to give a few useful tips that I have picked up since starting my journey learning about long exposure photography.

Getting It Right In Camera: Using Filters To Accurately Capture the Scene

An informative article from Rick Berk on Digital Photo School on the use of Filters.

Often when I’m out shooting landscapes, Mother Nature dictates that the conditions be less than ideal for landscape photography. Or at the very least, she decides the conditions should be different than what I envisioned when I decided to pack my bag and head out the door.

The image below is a perfect example. A friend and I had decided to head to Brooklyn to shoot the skyline of lower Manhattan at sunrise. I envisioned blue skies, with golden light from behind me, reflecting off the skyscrapers. If I had my druthers, there would have been some white puffy clouds with a hint of pink as well.

Camera Settings Simplified on a DSLR

An article by Mo Azam for Picture Correct, aimed at the new users of DSLR cameras, which you may find interesting if you have just obtained your first DSLR.

Before I begin I just want to warn you of my Nikon bias. Although I’ve previously owned Sony’s and used a number of Canon’s my preferred choice is now Nikon. To be honest it’s not because I think Nikon’s are better, it’s more to do with the choice of lenses, and lens compatibility with different models in the Nikon range. Being a wedding photographer I’ve found that I can save so much money by reusing my lenses on the newer Nikon models.

Choosing Lenses: When to Use Which Lens and Why

Do you ever wonder which lenses you need to add to your collection? If you find the plethora of lenses available for your DSLR confusing then this article by Rick Berk on Digital Photo School should prove of interest.

All DSLR systems offer a dizzying selection of lenses for their cameras. These range from fisheyes that give a 180° field of view, to telephoto lenses up to 800mm or more. You’ve got zooms, primes, macro, super telephoto, and of course, tilt-shift lenses as well.

In my time as a photographer I’ve often had friends, students, or casual acquaintances ask me “What lens should I get?” There is no one right answer to this question, and it can lead to more confusion unless I ask a few questions myself.

Sozopol Old Town Photos

The city of Sozopol is located on a scenic bay along the southern Bulgarian coast, about 35 km south of Burgas.

The city, which has a population of 5,000, is one of the oldest on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and one of the country’s most popular seaside resorts. The romantic atmosphere of the city’s beautiful old town attracts visitors from all over the world.

Sozopol’s Old Town was declared a museum-reserve by Ministerial Decree № 320 on September 7, 1974. The reserve includes more than 180 residences, constructed from the middle of the 18th century to the beginning of the 19th century. Houses in the Old Town are built of stone and wood and conform to the so-called Black Sea school of architecture. 

Here are a few of the photos taken on our recent holiday, showing the stone and wood houses.

A Brief History of Photojournalism

A fascinating article from Raechel Towne for our friends at Light Stalking, including some interesting and iconic photographs.

Photojournalists are an under-appreciated lot that have done important work in maintaining an informed populace in our society – an inherently important part of a functioning democracy. It is always a hugely popular topic among all photographers when we cover it here, so we decided to put together a brief history of this ver rich subject.

Photojournalism differs from other types of commercial photography which involve people in that the subject has no say in how the photos are used or constructed.  Like in traditional print journalism, the photojournalist’s job is to document a real story in the most authentic manner possible and with the utmost journalistic integrity.

Here are scientific breakthroughs, political upheavals and social revolutions, from the first photographs of an embryo in a human womb to the indelible images of America's Civil Rights movement. 

Here are sailors kissing nurses, a single man defying a Chinese tank, fire-fighters raising the American flag over the ruins of the World Trade Centre. 

Based on a highly successful 2000 book, this new edition has been completely updated to add the most significant pictures of the last decade, from hanging chads ands the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to Hurricane Katrina and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

Photographing Buildings [Composition Tips]

This Guest Post by Michael Toye on the Digital Photography School site, gives some good tips and shows some brilliant photos.

I am a firm believer, at least with photography, that what you get back is directly related to the effort you put in. As with all activities, it’s certainly not linear and I am the first to admit that you can tip the scale in your favor to achieve some great architectural images armed with only a few basic techniques.

For me, I think the allure of shooting buildings started as a tourist. We all do it, albeit some with less style and grace than others – yes you leaning tower of Pisa holder up’ers, I am talking about you! So there you are, standing in front of an awesome and aged icon of a building and with little thought other than fitting the structure into the LCD’s frame, you snap away. I know I did. The problem is that the hastily captured image is more than likely just going to be just that, a snap.

I have a mental checklist i go through when i pass a building that catches my eye, so the following techniques apply to all aspects of photography really but, specifically for architecture, you will see significant improvement.

To read the rest of the article, follow the link  Photographing Buildings [Composition Tips]

If you want to develop your interest in photographing buildings, Architectural Photography covers the subject in depth.

Architectural photography is more than simply choosing a subject and pressing the shutter-release button; it's more than just documenting a project. An architectural photograph shows the form and appeal of a building far better than any other medium. With the advent of the digital photographic workflow, architects are discovering exciting new opportunities to present and market their work. 

But what are the ingredients for a successful architectural photograph? What equipment do you need? How can you improve your images in your digital darkroom? Why does a building look different in reality than in a photographic image?

In this book you will find the answers to these questions and much more.

Understanding Flash Photography

This guide to on- and off-camera flash picks up where Understanding Exposure leaves off, helping free photographers from the limitations of 'auto'; to get the images they want when natural light isn't enough.

For the many amateur photographers afraid to venture past natural lighting, here is the book that will finally help them explore the exciting possibilities of artificial light. In his trademark easy-to-understand style, Bryan Peterson explains not only how flash works, but how to go beyond 'TTL'; automatic flash exposure to master manual flash, allowing readers to control the quality, shape and direction of light for a perfect exposure, every time.
