Photography Class Notes - Common Misconception of Post Productions

Hello everyone! Today, I like to clarify common misconceptions of the term "editing" and "retouching".

The other day, my friend Chris Bahn at Put That Back asked me if I retouch with Photoshop? I said, "Always". Then he responded with "That would take a long time." It got me thinking, what did he meant? When I pressed retouch all of his event pictures.

That's when the I connected to the what he was saying what he actually meant.

"Oh! You meant editing, not retouching! Yeah, I don't use Photoshop for that. I use Lightroom, or Bridge."

So what's the difference you asked?


Beginner's Photography Classes: Blog Post 02-08

Hello dear readers. I hope everyone is warm and cozy in our unusual winter weather.

After many long nights thinking about the best way serve you, it will have to be video tutorials. So...

Check out these raw files from my last shoot at Fila. While still in middle of a production for a few ad campaigns, I was able to sneak in these shots above for my next tutorial. This will be a comprehensive video tutorial that will be divided into two parts. First part video will be how to pre-light shots and let the creativity flow once you're there. And the second part video will be how to edit and retouch to final product. I hope to show you good production habits to get the best out of your camera and reduce post-production time.
