Lightroom presets are a great way to store the editing work you put into one image and apply it to another, similar image. But when you start creating your own presets, it is easy to create a complete mess as the number and variety of your presets tend to grow quickly. In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to organize them properly right from the start to keep everything tidy and useful.

Photographing interiors where you don't have control over the lighting can be a bit of a lottery. In this video, I'll show you how to use Lightroom to turn on the lights and change the lighting after the fact as you wish.
Let’s have a little thought experiment: Assume that a crazy scientist conducted some nuclear experiment in your neighborhood. Let’s say this experiment went terribly wrong, and as aside effect, you were thrown back 70 years right now. Would you take up photography ‘again’? See what photography was like back then and take our little poll.
In this video tutorial, I will show you how to create a fake long-exposure HDR image in Photomatix.

In this video, you see the entire post-processing work from merging the source photos into HDR images, via the panorama stitching, all the way to the editing stage where I change quite a bit of the lighting in the original scene around to shape the image according to what I had in mind. All of this is shown as time-lapse, 5 x faster than real time.
This is an HDR panorama of the Church of the Redeemer in Toronto - created from 3 exposures series (3 shots each), merged, stitched and edited in Lightroom.
