10 Common Photography Mistakes Right Around The Corner!
My newest project is complete! It’s called 10 Common Photography Mistakes (and how to fix them) and will be available on Wednesday next week! Because of my blog here and social media, I get to talk to a lot of photographers and see a lot of photographers work on a daily basis. After seeing a few recurring mistakes day in and day out, I began compiling a list of some of the most common ones. I didn’t really know what I was going to do with that list, but before I knew it I had around 50 items on that list! I edited that down to a top ten sort of list and started writing an ebook. Well, eventually I realized that there was just too much information to cover on these topics in an ebook so I decided to make it into a video style format.
So this new product is a collection of 10 different videos, with each video focusing on a separate mistake. I also took a more extensive approach and go over how to correct each mistake in both Lightroom and Photoshop. I’ve done a lot of research lately and feel this will appeal to most of my audience (just look at the poll over there on the right hand side). I use both programs in the videos because I know some people just have one or the other and not always both.
This project has taken a LONG time to prepare and complete and it’s really turned into a labor of love. I really think you are going to enjoy it and get a lot out of it!
Oh and one more thing: Newsletter subscribers will get early access and a discount code so be sure to sign up ASAP!
Fun in Rural Kansas
Last week my family and I went up to Kansas to spend a few days with some friends there. They live in a very, very rural part of Kansas. Once you get off the highway it’s about 20-30 minutes of dirt roads to get to their house, lol. We just got to relax, ride 4-wheelers around their land and on all the dirt roads, and just have a good time. It was quite fun! I spent pretty much all of my time riding around on this 4-wheeler.Processing was done in Lightroom initially. I used the new spotlight tool and then took it over to Photoshop for some detail work. Then used‘s Focal Point for a subtle blur effect. All in all it took a photo shot in the middle of the day and gave it sort of a stormy, edge of day look.
I also really enjoyed being able to ride a 4-wheeler around at full speed with my Sony NEX-7 around my shoulder. That thing is so light I couldn’t even tell I had it on me.
