I do not use Photoshop. I just never learned it. I do love Lightroom. Lightroom is another Adobe product if is very powerful photo edting software. It does all the basics and more. This photo of Radio City Music Hall and the building across from it really shows what Lightroom can do. This feels like it is out of a Batman movie to me. You can see from the street sign that it is the holiday season.
WEDDING DAY SNAPSHOT | 20 WEDDING PHOTOS BUILD A TIME LINE
I love Adobe Lightroom for many reasons. It is a fast sorter of photos. Maybe not the fastest but it works well for culling out the miss fires and non keepers. Photogrpahers never want to admit they take a photo that is not 100% amazing every time, but it does happen. So once home form a wedding or portrait session. I will load the images on to my computer with Lightroom. This is great because Lightroom has a feature that allows users to back up to another spot on your computer a second copy of the same files. This does this all at the same time. So before we even start to edit we have 2 copies of the files and all professional photographers should practices the art of backing up. This way if anything was to happen to one of the hard drives we would have another copy on a separate hard drive for safe keeping. One other reason I love Lightroom is that you can create collage images by selecting photos from a session or over time from many sessions to build a collection set or best of, insert category here.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO: This collage is one I built form the wedding photos of a wedding in 2014. I really had a fun time at this wedding. Really nice people and a truly fun day. We were in southern New Hampshire in a small town called, Contoocook. We had perfect weather for the day. Another reason I liked this wedding was that the brides maids all had on a different colored dress. I love that look in the photos. It was great that the groomsmen had matching ties.. So I thought I would build this image form just 20 of the days photos. It is a time line from before, during and after the ceremony. I am going to build out a few more of these types of images for all my weddings. Thanks again for checking out my page.
When you have a passion in life why not include it in the best day of your life? That is what this wedding couple did on their big day. They both have a love for skiing. What better way to encompass that then to get married at the top of their favorite ski resort. Jays Peck. The wedding party, DJ and both photographers made the trip up via the chair lift. I was lucky enough to be the last one down sitting behind the bride and groom to capture some memorable photographs of the trip to the base lodge. It was a great ceremony with time after to shoot some photos at the top. The day ended with a epic sunset and joyous party to celebrate the joining of this young couple.

Last year I headed to the coast of Maine for a class. I was able to rent a Tilt-shift lens for my camera. They are an amazing lens. With moving parts that do what it says. It can tilt the angle of view and create an effect with blurring around the edge of the frame of the photo. It gives the viewer the feeling like the photo has been edited in such a way to give this look, but it is all done with the lens. If you are new to photography or want to learn a bit more about what a Tilt- shift lens is check this Wikipedia page.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO: This was shot across Camden harbor. I was just playing with the lens and loved the way this looked with the Church steeple in focus and the rest of the city looking blurry and out of focus.
