Why I Compose & Process the Way I Do

Why I Compose & Process the Way I Do

Disclaimer

In this long meandering video, I explain why I compose the way I do and why I process a RAW file the way I do.

I make no claim that this is the ONLY way to shoot and process an image nor am I saying any other way might be “Wrong” or “Stupid”. I’m merely explaining the way I do things, as a reference for those that watch my videos can better understand my philosophy.

My hope is that this educates and stimulates you to investigate how other photographers compose and edit so that you can come up with something unique, that works for you.

How I Shoot Bracketed Images

How I Shoot Bracketed Images

 

In this short video, I demonstrate how I set up my Nikon camera to shoot bracketed images. The bracket could be used for a later merge to HDR image or perhaps I just want to make sure that I nail exposure.

If your camera is capable of shooting a bracketed set of images and has a timer mode, you’ll be able to shoot a bracket in the manner. Even if your camera doesn’t have a timer mode or, you don’t have a tripod, I demonstrate how to shoot a bracket in those situations as well.

Mastering Luminar 2018 Video & DVD

Mastering Luminar 2018 Video & DVD

Even though all my videos are freely available on YouTube, I often get requests from folks who’d like to have a copy of the videos — either a DVD copy that they can play on their home DVD while they follow along, working on an image on their computer. Or, more often, I’ve received requests to purchase the actual video files to be viewed on a computer when an internet connection is not available. I’m happy to say that all of my Mastering series of videos will be available on a physical DVD to be played in a home DVD player and/or a video download that can be played on a computer.

My First Mastering video series is Mastering Luminar 2018 that I very recently uploaded to YouTube. It is now available on DVD and/or a Video download...
