i use aperture 3, so i'm very limited to the picture itself, idk how to take **** out of the background like in photo shop and ditch reflection/layer multiple exposures etc etc.



messed around with some editing recently, but this is as far as i could go with aperture i think...i grabbed a shadow that was all black and kept cloning until i had everything black besides what i wanted and then smoothed out with brushes...obviously if i had proper lighting this would be a lot easier with blackpoint adjustments

That would make a sweet desktop image!

Honestly, I'd give Lightroom a try.

You can still get the standalone version for $110 from Amazon, and it's worth every penny. I've tried a few other editors and none are as fast to pick up or as easy to work with.

Just got Lightroom 5 don't even know where to start. Anyone have any preferred tutorials that they started out with? I have found a few but anyone else got some?

I'm well versed in Photoshop but this is kind of a different animal.

have a look on youtube on how to set your LightRoom up for the metadata and ©/ownership etc of the photo's before you do anything else.

LR is easy to improve the photos, then I just save to the same folder as the original but have it put in a separate folder that I call Jpeg edits (if you're using RAW to work with)

So can someone critique my most recent photos... I know I'm using a potato for a camera and no editing software. but I just want to see what should do as far as framing, positioning and cropping to get a more pleasing pic.











Thank you

Alright Armin, I'll try and keep the thread going



Do the reflections bug you?
I polarized with about 15 shots and those reflections were basically just there. I got rid of a bunch, but the big ones, I couldn't remove without it looking like I removed them, do they hurt the image?

It's been something like 2.5 years since I've logged into this forum. I actually have had 2 Evo's, a MS3, and a 370 in the interim.

Just wanted to post some of my most recent shots. LMK some CC.

Part 3B - get a grey card ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...ay_Card_4.html or similar) for color reference and use a precise white balance instead of auto. All applications for processing camera RAW files will allow you to set a custom white balance by photographing a grey card under the same lighting conditions.

Why use a grey card to set "white" balance? That's an extra credit question.

Are you legitimatly asking? If you are then it gives you a starting point without the trial and error or messing with you color and tint sliders. It's as simple as using the dropper tool in LR. Then of you want it a little warmer or cooler for various effects just adjust accordingly from where the white balance cards gets you. I have one but stopped using it unless it's very difficult lighting situation bc I always forget to pack it and i am better at eye balling it.
