Book Recommendation – Photoshop For Lightroom Users

Lightroom is such an awesome program for organizing and editing photos, but after you’ve worked with it for a while, you’ll hit a wall — a point where you realize that there are things you need to do that Lightroom just won’t do. It could be anything from retouching portraits to blending two or more images together to stitching panoramas to creating realistic HDR images, to adding beautiful type to your images — there are lots of incredible things you could do…if you only knew Photoshop.

But while Lightroom is pretty easy to learn, Photoshop is…well…it’s Photoshop. It’s this huge amazing Swiss-Army knife of a program with 100+ tools, and two dozen floating panels, and a ton of filters and compared to Lightroom it seems really complicated, but that’s only because…it is. But what if you only needed to learn about 10 or 20% of what Photoshop can do. What if you only needed to learn a few important techniques for photographers? That’s what my new book is all about. Teaching just the stuff Lightroom can’t do — and it’s one of the shortest books I’ve written (at 192 pages), so it’s short, sweet, right to the point, and even shows you things you might think you need to jump over to Photoshop for (but you can actually do right in Lightroom — I show you how).

Anyway, you can pre-order the print version right here from Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or theKindle version which is available right now!

The Art of Portrait Photography Video

Humans have been creating likenesses of each other for thousands of years, but with the introduction of photography, a new language developed for capturing the human image. Photography created opportunities for not just for biography and documentation, but also depth, empathy, and experimentation. Many portrait photographers today elevate their work from mere photo to art, communicating ideas and capturing the human subject with dignity, all while exploring the meaning and potential of portraiture.

Must Watch – Awesome Time lapse Video on Shanghai

This is Shanghai from Rob Whitworth on Vimeo.

Photographer Rob Whitworth and urban identity expert JT Singh joined forces combining deep city exploration and pioneering filmmaking. ‘This is Shanghai’ is a roller coaster ride seamlessly weaving between the iconic, sparkling and mismatched buildings of the financial district travelling by boat and taxi touring Shanghai’s impressive infrastructure whilst glimpsing some of the lesser-known aspects of Shanghai life such as the lower stratum areas or the stunning graffiti of Moganshan road. And of course there is the opportunity to try some of the vast variety of street food and Shanghai’s most popular homegrown delicacy, the pan-fried pork dumplings, the shengjian bao.

Rob Whitworth (robwhitworth.co.uk/) is a creative time lapse photographer from the UK based in Asia. His previous videos, ‘Traffic in Frenetic HCMC’ and ‘Kuala Lumpur DAY-NIGHT’ have received international attention including being short listed for 7 film festivals, and have had received well over 2 million online views.

JT Singh (jtsingh.com/) has explored hundreds of emerging cities around the world and is a next generation thinker about the value and impact of 21st century cities. Having grown up in Toronto JT is now based in China. He explains:

“The over-riding reason we made this video was to creatively show the world visually how China is rising, in particular Chinese cities. Just as New York City exemplified the strengths and ambitions of emerging America in the 20th century, Shanghai, perhaps more than any old or emerging rival, will personify the power and dreams of rising Asia in the 21st century.”
