Lesson Info

Photo applications and Profesional Apps

So let's talk about photo editing apps specifically, there are a lot of different photo apps. I mean, there's the Adobe ones are probably going to be the most popular in general. Now, they do cost money. You can get a cheaper student discount or you can get sort of just the photo apps instead of the entire Adobe suite. For the purposes of this course, I'm going to be sticking with Adobe lightroom 95% of the time we will bounce into Photoshop for a couple of little detailed things. But just because of the pure volume of photos that we'll be editing lightroom or applications like like room where you can organize and mass apply edits or you can get to things faster, you can rate things is just going to be better for editing weddings. Way back in the day when I started doing wedding photography, there was only Photoshop and so you actually had to use, I think it was called Adobe Bridge to help you organize the photos. And there was times before we even had that where I was organizing just ...

files and going through them on finder. And in premiere, it was a total hassle. Photoshop itself is great. Obviously, like we love to use Photoshop and it is the gold standard for editing a single photo at a time. However, again, when you're editing wedding photos, you're editing like thousands, hundreds of photos going and running them through Photoshop is not going to be necessarily ideal for your workflow. Maybe if you're only delivering 1015 photos, it might be nice. But honestly, lightroom is going to be the best possible editing software that you can do. If you're going to be a full time professional wedding photographer. If you're using this as a hobby, you're doing it on the side, you're helping out friends. There are other applications that you can use. There are things like photo director um capture one DXO photo lab, a bunch of other little free apps. You could even probably get away with editing a few photos on your ipad or on your um mobile phone if you just use the in house native editor. So that being said, this section and whatever I'm going to be doing is going to be done through Lightroom or Photoshop just because that is in my eyes, the industry standard. And it's something that you should get used to all the editing capabilities as far as like, you know, adjusting curves or exposure or contrast, all the basic editing things are there and they do translate to other applications, which is really good. So it's good if you already have a base and a foundation for what editing a photo is like, even if you just open up your mobile phone, click, edit and go through and play with all the different sliders, just get a general idea of what all those do. It'd be great if you could get in the light room and do that yourself. Because if you already know how to do that and then you start to go through the next few lectures, you'll get more out of it. So that's the best thing I can give you as far as advice before you start taking these next few lectures. So let's get into it. Let's get ready. We're going to import all our photos into lightroom and we're going to start rating and calling and organizing before we get really deep into the editing. So if you're following along, make sure you have your photos that you're gonna use. If you want, get them onto your computer, get them ready to get into your computer. And um we're gonna open up light room and we're gonna get going. So let's start with organizing co and uh yeah, all the fun rating and stuff. Here we go.
