Better Landscape Photos with Lightroom Online Course

Announcing my new 3.5hr “Better Landscape Photos with Lightroom” self paced online course on my new online photography educational website http://learn.mattsuess.com

LRcourse

Join me as I show you how to process and enhance 9 RAW landscape photographs in Lightroom. Much better than a webinar, this course includes 9 of my RAW landscape photos that you will be able to download yourself to work on and practice as you watch the pre-recorded videos at your own pace.

You can read the entire course description here.

The course is priced at just $34.95 and includes the 9 RAW files and 5 Lightroom presets I created for this course. That amounts to just $10 per hour of expert training, an incredible bargain! There is even a FREE Trial you can sign up for to take the course for a test drive.

You will feel like I am there with you as I go into detail explaining the corrections and adjustments I make to the photos. You will benefit from working on the exact same files as I am, accelerating your learning pace.

Five Lightroom presets that I created are also downloadable and I show you how to install and use them.

In this particular video recording I will be showing you how to use the Upright tool, the adjustment brush to mask one of the saguaro cacti to selectively fix a color cast, as well as showing you how to enhance the tone and color of the image globally and selectively.

The online course should be available for purchase by this upcoming weekend.

Photographers be sure to read the Terms & Conditions with Photoshop & Lightroom CC from Adobe

Photographers should take notice of the Terms & Conditions regarding the recently offered Photoshop Creative Cloud and Lightroom 5 bundle they are currently offering to those who own Photoshop C3 or later.

The current offer lets you sign up to a monthly subscription for $9.99 per month if you register before December 31, 2013 and includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5. Adobe has promised that the $9.99 is “not an introductory price. It is the price for those of you who sign up by December 31, 2013”. Many photogs are excited about this $9.99 per month BUT we need to read the Terms & Conditions because there seems to be some confusion.

Adobe takes a crack at getting Photographers back with new Photoshop Photographer Program

I guess I have to give credit where credit is due.

Adobe yesterday announced a new subscription plan for photographers interested in only using Photoshop and Lightroom. Called the Adobe Photoshop Photography Program, it certainly is an improvement over their initial subscription plans. With the uproar Adobe created in the photo community since their announcement in May this is the first stab Adobe has had at repairing the damage they created with photographers.

If you own a previous version of Photoshop CS3 or newer and start your subscription before the end of the year you can qualify for their $9.99 (plus tax) per month subscription offer for photographers. This “introductory offer” includes Photoshop CC, Lightroom 5, Behance Membership, and 20GB of cloud storage. But you must sign up for it before December 31st. You will have to wait a couple weeks to sign up on this offer. Once Lightroom 5.2 is announced in a couple weeks you can then take advantage of this.

But while this is certainly an improvement I wouldn’t go so far as to say “Photographers Rejoice” as PetaPixel did. There are still some issues with the subscription model and as such I am still not confident in recommending it to photographers who do not make their full living off of photography.
