Book Review – Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits

Gregory Heisler: 50 Portraits: Stories and Techniques from a Photographer’s Photographer

I don’t often do book reviews but every now and than a book comes along which I find that I can’t put down. That’s what I found with Gregory Heisler’s book, 50 Portraits: Stories and Techniques from a Photographer’s Photographer.

It’s unusual that I would like a photography book such as this one as much as I do. That’s because I’m a very “X” and “O” type of guy. Probably because of my background in engineering — I tend to be very technical… overly technical one could argue and this book is not technical at all.

Lightroom Quick Tips – Episode 5: Move Lightroom Library to an External Drive

by Anthony Morganti

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

This is the fifth episode of a new series where I give a single, quick Lightroom tip.

Often, when we begin to use Lightroom we have our Lightroom Library on the local drive of our computer. Before long, it may swell with thousands of images and take up too much space. In this video I show how you can easily move your entire Lightroom Library to an external hard drive and preserve all the edits that you’ve previously done.

Lightroom Quick Tips – Episode 4: Share Images From Laptop to Desktop

by Anthony Morganti

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

This is the fourth episode of a new series where I give a single, quick Lightroom tip.

Ok, I probably should have done this in my Learn Lightroom 5 series because this video turned out to be a bit longer than I intend the videos to be for Lightroom Quick Tips but here it is nonetheless.

Many of us keep our main Lightroom Library on our desktop — Often though, we take our laptop on vacation or on location and edit images in Lightroom on the laptop. Have you ever wondered how to get the edited images off of the laptop and into our main library on our desktop? Well, I explain how it’s done in this video.

Photoshop For Photographers – Episode 12: Swap a Sky – Redux

by Anthony Morganti

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

In Episode 10 I demonstrated how to swap a sky utilizing a Selection. Well, what if your image is too complex to get a good selection. What do you do? You watch this, Episode 12 of Photoshop For Photographers where I show how it’s done.

Doing the swap as shown in this video only works if the only blue in your image is the sky. It won’t work as well if you have blue water, flowers or anything else blue besides the sky.
