I’m releasing a brand new Adobe Lightroom preset collection today called Portrait & Fashion!
It’s half off until November 1st.
That’s $19 if you get it before November 1st…
You can get this collection plus $400+ of other preset collections and training with the All Access Pass for $14/month.
The All Access Pass is a great way to go because you get access to all future courses, tutorials, and preset collections as long as you are a subscriber.
But it’s your choice.
Portrait and Fashion Collection Half Off
I’ve just released a new video training course for anyone looking to get started with Adobe Lightroom. This Adobe Lightroom training course from Camera Stupid is designed to get you started using Adobe Lightroom to organize, edit, and backup your photos as quickly as possible. Adobe Lightroom is a fantastic tool for amateur or professional photographers looking to streamline their workflow and produce professional photographic results for their clients or personal enjoyment. In this digital age, many photographers struggle to maintain the thousands of photos they take each month. Adobe Lightroom solves the problem of photo organization with a robust collection system and keyword tagging features. Never misplace a digital photo again! [Read more…]
If you photograph outdoors at all you’ll know that sometimes the sky just doesn’t cooperate. Ideally, you’ll setup your shot during golden hour, get the perfect composition, great light, dramatic clouds and the perfect shot. But life is rarely ideal. More often than not I find myself having to get the best shot I can with a less than stellar sky in the background. [Read more…]
Time Slice 1.0 has been a huge success! I created the Time Slice desktop app because I was frustrated with how difficult it was to create this relatively simple effect of slicing the individual frames of a time-lapse to make a single image. It’s been really fun to use on my own projects such as the example I shot above of the Salt Lake City skyline. It’s also been really fun to see examples other photographers have sent me that they have put together using the app. [Read more…]
You may have seen these awesome time slice images created from a batch of day-to-night time-lapse photos. Dan Marker-Moore is a master of this technique.
I was frustrated by how difficult and time-consuming it was to create one of these images… So I’ve created a brand new desktop program for OSX, Win, and Linux that makes the process easy and fast!
Go check out Time Slice 1.0 today!

I’ve been pushing through a creative rut lately and I’ve been experimenting with new things to get inspired and push myself out of my comfort zone a bit. Today I decided to try photographing a pair of Sony headphones I got recently by cashing in the rewards points on my credit card. Here’s a short video that shows the studio setup and the post processing: [Read more…]
Dodging and burning an image is a common technique that can add contrast to the highlights and shadows and provide a certain “commercial” look to a portrait. In this episode I show you how to use photoshop to doge and burn an image in a non-destructive way.
Photoshop makes it simple to add texture, glow, or imperfections to our digital photographs. Why would you do this? Some photographic subjects lend themselves to various special effects or enhancements. Photographs of old building like the one I took in Prague, Czech Republic above can be made to feel older with a subtle paper texture added. The emotion and mood of the performer in the image below can be enhanced with a bokeh color glow. As with any art form, how far to take these effects is completely subjective. I tend to prefer a more subtle approach. [Read more…]
