Photography, Trolls, Jerks and the Internet

By Anthony Morganti

Thumbs Down

Recently, I was perusing a photography group on Facebook. A photographer posted a beautiful HDR image of a bridge above a river. It was one of those images that we as photographers may look at and think, “Crap, I wish I took that shot!” (…or maybe even more colorful language to that effect). The praise from the group membership was genuine and deserved except for this one:

“Nice fake image”

I wish I could have reached into my computer and slap the person upside the head.

Really, I did.

It goes without saying that the Internet is a great resource for everyone including photographers. When I started out in photography, I was 15 and the few computers in the world took up an entire floor of a building and probably had “NASA” stamped on them somewhere...

Lightroom CC — New Features

by Anthony Morganti

 Lightroom CC

Clarification of Versions

There is a bit of confusion as to whether this release of Lightroom is called CC or 6. For Creative Cloud customers, the software is called, Lightroom CC. For those that purchase the software outright, the software is referred to as Lightroom 6. As of right now, one can only purchase Lightroom 6 directly from Adobe and I’ve heard that in the future, only the full version, no upgrades, will be available from third party retailers. So, if you want to upgrade your Lightroom 5.7 to 6 and do not want to subscribe to Creative Cloud, than you’ll have to purchase your upgrade through Adobe.

New Features in Lightroom 6 a.k.a. Lightroom CC

by Anthony Morganti

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

In this video, I talk about a few of the more interesting new features of Lightroom 6, also known as, Lightroom CC.

The features I’m referring to are Merge to HDR, Merge to Panorama and the new feature when using a graduated or radial filter that allows you to brush away those filters on the parts of the image where you don’t want it applied.

Photography Tips While Vacationing

by Anthony Morganti

Spacewalk

National Air & Space Museum – Fujifilm X-T1 with 18-135mm lens at 110mm 1/125 sec, f/5.6 iso: 1600

I always take advantage of family vacations and getaways to do a little photography. Throughout numerous vacations and weekend journeys, I’ve found that there often is a fine line between being the patriarch of a vacationing family and being a professional photographer. How much time and energy can I devote to my photography with it not having a negative effect on everyone else’s holiday? In this article I offer some tips on how to have a great time vacationing with your family while getting some great pictures too.

Travel Light

In the past I would haul around my Nikon D800e with battery grip, and at least three lenses — the 14-24 f/2.8, 24-70 f/2.8 and the 70-200 ...
