Below is a quick Fall Photography photo from the 2nd Annual Great Smoky Mountains Photo Summit I taught at last week (more photos and write up coming later this week). You probably remember me email blasting you over and over again about my Ultimate Lightroom Course last month 🙂 (sorry, gotta pay the bills). Well, one of the big bonus perks of joining up during that special launch week was that I was including 6 weeks of “Office Hours” videos. These were live weekly webcasts where anyone who purchased the course could join in (or send questions if you can’t join in) about the course.
The concept was to help complete the learning process, like in college, to give you a place to ask questions after you’ve watched the videos. Well, the Office Hours have been wildly successful and I’m happy to say that I’ve answered every question (live and online) that I get.
But this last week’s office hours was one of my favorites (and everyone else’s judging from the comments). So I figured I’d include a quick 10 minute clip from it to share with you since it’s got a cool photo edit from my workshop in the Great Smoky Mountains last week. Enjoy!
Matt, Thank for the information on enhancing the color of the trees this fall. I have learned so much from your presentations, thank you.
Hey Matt, Great meeting you at the summit! Enjoyed your presentations- keep up the good work!! –
You too buddy! Keep in touch my friend! 🙂
Love your Ultimate Lightroom Course… it has me shooting RAW and processing in Lr again, so thanks for that! This video was another excellent tutorial. Keep them coming, thanks.
Nice Matt! I was at the GSMPS too and I didn’t come back with those kinds of yellow and orange leaves in my photos – there was still too much of that yellowy-green. Need to follow you around next time 🙂
Or follow my Lightroom tutorials. I pushed the colors quite a bit 🙂
I love your video tips on digital photography and post-processing. This one was good for fall landscaping editing but personally, after making Basic adjustments all I do was in Camera Calibration Panel just change the settings from default Adobe Standard to Camera Landscape. All the additional saturation and warm colors would come out in perfectly right proportion making your photo very creative.
Enjoyed your video on fall colors. One question that has been on my mind is the Color Checker Passport. In your opinion is it a useful application for mixed lighting situations in the outdoor and what is you preference?
Hi Terry – No. I don’t think they help an outdoor photographer much.
Use of radial filters in different places in the image was a great idea. I have only used it in one place!
My wife and I enjoyed meeting you last week at the GSMPS! I still chuckle over your advice to “shut up and shoot”. Really enjoyed this video and got some good ideas as I work through my own Smoky Mountain images.
Thanks Henry – great meeting you too! 🙂
