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 It Worth Switching To Adobe Lightroom CC?

Ever since Adobe announced the changes to Adobe Lightroom, I've gotten tons of questions with a single common theme: Is it worth switching from Lightroom Classic CC to the new Lightroom CC? In order to answer that question effectively, I decided to fully immerse myself in the process of migrating from one platform to the other and have committed to do so [...]

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.
