I have just created the best photo editing course on the internet today. I felt the need to do this after doing hundreds of workshops around the world and listening to my student’s needs and struggles.
Photo editing can be a challenge, I know that first hand. When I first started editing I had no idea what I was doing. All the editing programs I was using were very confusing and I was completely overwhelmed and lost.
Photo Editing Course
In this Photo Editing Course, I cover all of the Lightroom develop module along with some awesome tricks. This cool tricks will help you speed up your workflow and develop your own style.
Let me take you back to the beginning. Every time I would go out to take photos I would come back and not have a clue as to what to do with them. I would upload them into Lightroom and I was completely overwhelmed with all the sliders.
I would spend hours behind the computer only to find my self frustrated because my images just didn’t look right. Some looked dull and crappy and some just overdone.
Fast forward 10 years. It took me a long time, but I finally arrived. Once my editing was on point, I started attracting the right clients, such as Nikon, National Geographic, Corona, and Volvo just to name a few.
In this course, I cover a wide range of photography genres. From portraiture to landscape photography and everything in between. I believe it’s important to be a well-rounded photographer and editor, this way you attract high paying clients.
After many years as a photographer and making a great living at it, I can tell you that editing is the other half. Meaning the editing must be just as good as your photography.
Editing takes practice, patience, repetition, and knowledge. With this course, I will have you editing like a pro in no time at all.
This is a Skylum Luminar review and it does not disappoint. The price of the software is extremely inexpensive for what it can do. And guess what? You can try it out for FREE. You can grave your copy here. If you choose to buy it use code FINEART at check out to get a discount when you follow this link.
What is Luminar? Luminar is the new editing software made by Skylum. It is incredibly fast and the possibilities are endless. I have been using it for a while now and it is really good. While trying to find something broken in the software or something missing I keep finding new features. I can not find anything wrong with the software as of this Luminar review.
How does it work?
When you open up the software, right off the bat the first thing you see is a set of presets at the bottom of the screen. This is really good because it gives you a good idea of what the photo can actually look like before you even start doing anything to it.
If you really like what you see, then you can just use that preset and be done with it. I know it is that awesome and super simple to do.
If you want to adjust that preset, all you have to do is apply it and adjust it to taste. (see the right-hand side)
Slylum Luminar Review
Who is Luminar For? Luminar is for every photographer, from beginners to pros. It works on Mac and PC. That is correct everyone can use this awesome software.
Can I use it with Lightroom? The answer is yes you can. Luminar can be used inside of Lightroom as a plugin. It is very easy to install and it has so many more adjustments than Lightroom.
If you find yourself to be overwhelmed with all this filters and masks and adjustments. Do not panic, Luminar has an awesome workspace called quick and awesome. It basically does the work for you.
I know it is crazy to think about software reading your mind, but it really does. When you pick the quick and awesome workspace there is a slider to boost the image as much as you want. Then magic happens.
These are all the workspace options you have. You can also create your own making your workflow even better.
Are you into drone photography? Skylum Luminar is loaded with Arial photography workspace as well as presets so you do not feel lonely inside the software. It works really good.
Check out the portrait workspace. It has so many options to beautify your portraits. Once you open this software up, you will be addicted. (just doing this review I have edited 15 photos and I keep forgetting I am doing a review) lol not a bad problem to have.
Bottom line is that Luminar is a great piece of software. It is another tool to have in your toolkit. Luminar has many different workspaces form street photography, to landscape photography, to portrait photography and the list goes on. Skylum Luminar truly is designed by photographers for photographers.
I ran across Photolemur while doing a search for some cool plugins. Once I opened their page, I had to have the software. What is Photolemur? It is intelligent editing software.
What does that mean? It means you do not have to do anything. The software does it all for you. All you have to do is install, drop your photos in the software and like magic they come out editing. What is great about this particular software, is that it works as stand alone software or as a Lightroom plug in.
It is really cool and it actually does a really nice job. It does not overdo the image, it just makes some really nice crisp adjustments and the results are awesome.
I have tried it in a handful of photos and it seems to work well all around. Below are the samples I used in the video. Let me know your thoughts, and if you are a user I’d like to know what you think about the software. I personally think is awesome, and for the price, you can’t beat it.
Clik on this link to download the software. All photos in this post were shot with my [thirstylink linkid=”17203″ linktext=”” class=”thirstylink” title=”this camera”] and with the awesome [thirstylink linkid=”17204″ linktext=”” class=”thirstylink” title=”this awesome lens”].
In this video, I go over Luminar Nepture and their new DJI inspired update. They added some great presets to get make your photos pop. It is really easy to use and goes hand in hand with Lightroom. With the click of the mouse you see the image transforms right before your eyes. I have been using Luminar for a few now and I really like it. Give it a try and let me know what you think. You can actually do layers inside of it without ever going to photoshop.
