Lightroom Quick Tips – Episode 26: Custom Before/After

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re reading this in your email, click on the headline to see the video.

This is the 26th episode of Lightroom Quick Tips where I give a single, quick Lightroom tip.

Hitting the Y key on your keyboard will give you a before/after look at your image but what do you do if your before image is color and your after image is black and white? It’s may not be advantageous to use a color image as the before image if the processed version is so drastically different. In this video, I demonstrate how to change your before image in Lightroom.

Inverse Square Law

A few of my photography students want to someday own their own studio. With them, I’m sure to teach the inverse square law as soon as possible as it is essential knowledge for the studio photographer and actually, anyone that wants to utilize flash and strobes in their photography.

In the video below, Mark Wallace does an awesome job explaining the inverse square law. Be sure to visit Mark’s website at:

Steve Perry Explains Lens Diffraction

by Anthony Morganti

Lens Diffraction

Often, when I see the first group of images from one of my new photography students, I find that they’ve stopped down most, if not all, of their landscape images to f/22 requiring that I immediately teach them about diffraction and why it’s not wise, and not needed, to stop down a lens so far. Sometimes I receive a bit of pushback when I tell them to try shooting the scene at f/8. Automatically I hear, “What about the depth of field?” Well, in the video below, Steve Perry does an awesome job of explaining what lens diffraction is and why you don’t need, in most situations, to stop down so far.
