My first time using Skylum Luminar and Aurora HDR 2018 [Photo Redux 010]

Several weeks ago, I conducted a survey with my newsletter subscribers. It's always important that I have a good idea of what sort of content they would find most helpful and one of the questions, in particular, yielded an interesting result.

What was I thinking with this image??? [Photo Redux 009]

Honestly. that's the question I've been asking myself every minute while recording this episode of Photo Redux. At one point in my life, as in 2009, I felt that post-processing involved obliterating highlights, crushing shadows, and over-sharpening every detail in a photo. And it's these sorts of retrospective experiences that makes it a pleasure to keep creating new episodes of [...]

Is HDR Really Necessary? [Photo Redux 007]

If I were to pinpoint a single influence on my photography from 2011 - 2014, it'd have to be HDR. I mean, I was completely obsessed. I surrounded myself with everything that has to do with HDR and tone-mapping. For better or worse, I would bracket just about every composition with 5, 7, and even 9 exposures. Can you imagine [...]

Check Out The NEW Adobe Lightroom CC Update [Photo Redux 006]

One of my favorite parts of this Photo Redux series is trying out new tools as I re-edit some of my oldest photos. With almost every episode thus far, I've used Adobe Lightroom Classic CC because of a very important reason. Namely, its newer and sleeker sibling was missing some important features that are frequently used as part of my [...]
