Amidst all the attention over the new 1.3 update, we forgot to post a link to another new Lightroom video tutorial by George Jardine. This one offers some more great tips on working with the Library module and some of the less well-know aspects of photo synching behavior in Lightroom.

“A new tutorial that covers the Sync command, and a few ins-and-outs of working with Lightroom’s selection logic.”

In this tutorial I outline the basics of Lightroom’s Synchronize command. You’ll learn how to apply Develop settings across multiple photos, in both the Library and the Develop modules. I also cover some of the new selection logic in Lightroom that is required to make working with large numbers of files, well…. logical!”

Tethered shooting in Lightroom

studio-shots180906-0045.jpgIntroduction to tethered shooting – If you are able to connect your camera directly to the computer, Lightroom has the potential to let you import image files directly from the camera.

Photographs can be quickly brought into Lightroom, bypassing the need for a camera card and having to configure the Import settings every time you import a batch of images.

This is also referred to as ‘tethered shooting’ and I say Lightroom has the potential to do this because Lightroom will need to rely on other software that can communicate with your camera and download capture files to a specified folder location.

With this in place, Lightroom can be configured to automatically import these images into the library.

China – In The Bag What Worked & What Didn’t

Written By Michael Reichmann–The Luminous Landscape

Every photographic trip is an education. One thing that I always learn is what equipment worked out, and what was either ineffective or redundant. Two weeks shooting several thousand frames in a foreign country under adverse conditions can tell me more about a given piece of gear than a year or more of occasional use at home.

The RAW Truth

Source: The Luminious Landscape
By Michael Tapes

Welcome to YAAARF! (Yet Another Article About RAW Format).

My passion for shooting RAW format began several years ago with the introduction of the Canon D30 into my life. Much to my surprise there was no software available that would allow an active photographer to reap the benefits of shooting RAW, which were known by very few. This lead to my co-developing YarcPlus, and of Chris Breeze offering BreezeBrowser, to fill the software void. Michael Reichmann and others spoke the unspeakable, that in fact the D30 when shot in RAW mode, was equal to and better than shooting film when the output was 8×10 or smaller.

Every day, I communicate with both pros and amateurs who have embraced the digital world and shoot JPEGS as standard practice. While many are successful shooters and business people in their own right, it pains me to think how much easier they could achieve equal, and in my opinion, superior results with less effort, by shooting RAW. I believe that there is an information gap and a fear factor about RAW that creates this disconnect. It is no secret that in my opinion it is mandatory practice to shoot RAW. I hope in this series of articles I can explain some truths that support my passionate belief.

Three Must-Have Photoshop Plug-ins
By Michael Reichmann

One of the questions that I’m asked most often, both at my seminars, and by e-mail, is – what software tools do I use; particularly for noise reduction and sharpening. And, how do I do my B&W conversions.
