PW138 - Tutorial 21, Chapter 1 - Northwest Wales Sunset

Today we start a brand new tutorial showing how I turned a very challenging exposure into a very pleasing seascape with rich blue, purple and yellow tones using Adobe Lightroom and then Photoshop. In this episode I use colour balance and graduated filters to add the colour toning and some sky darkening. I also bring back detail in the very light and dark regions by using the fill light and recovery sliders.

PW132 - Tutorial 20, Chapter 1 - Adding Fashion Labels to your Slideshow

Today's show does double duty as both part of our Lightroom 3 review and also the first chapter in a new tutorial. We'll be adding fashion labels to our photographs as a fun way to brand a Lightroom 3 slideshow and I'll show you how the label is made by using new features from Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS5. If you want to see what we're aiming for I've uploaded the Lightroom 3 Slideshow to my Flickr.

Tutorial 14, Chapter 4 - Ophelia's Mother

It's my first full show since our baby was born so little Catherine makes a brief appearance and then we're back to business with the next chapter in Tutorial 14 - Ophelia's Mother. We work with HDR images in Photoshop this time and I've replaced the composition segment with a quick Lightroom tip on cropping. And as usual there's the slideshow of the entries to last week's assignment set to some podsafe music. I picked the new Coconi track - Jewels cause "Light up" got great comments last time.

The final chaper in the Tutorial 13 saga. This week we make final edits to our promo image using Photoshop CS3 before taking our finished image back into Lightroom to produce various useful crops all from the same source image. Also this week we talk about Reflections in our composition segment. Music for the assignment entries is provided by Jimmie Bratcher with "Restless for the Sun".

Tutorial 13, Chapter 4 - PhotoWalkthrough Promo Shot

This week we spend some time with the Lightroom Developer Module preparing our images for the final stage in Photoshop CS3. We play with the exposure sliders, white balance, spot editing and healing and then cropping. We also look at composition using foreground, middleground and background. And we review the entries to last week's shallow depth of field challenge while we listen to Howard Jones' latest podsafe hit, Revolution of the Heart.
