It has been a while since I put together a video tutorial and I thought it was time. In this video tutorial, I take a look at using a combination of Adobe Lightroom and Nik Software’s Viveza plugin to do some light modifying; after the picture has been made. I am sure a lot of photographers will scoff at this and tell me I should have got it right in the camera, but in a lot of candid situations and especially with wildlife photography, using tools like deflectors and numerous lighting sources just isn’t an option.
It’s odd, but most animals aren’t too good at standing on a mark or not eating an assitant holding a reflector to balance out some side lighting.
As an alternative, this video will help you understand why I love Viveza and how you can easily and quickly make a radical adjustment to the lighting in an image.
It runs about 20 minutes so when you have a chance, take a look and let me know what you think.
