Last month, at the Bay Area Lightroom User Group, I got to try something I'd always wanted to do. In front of over 100 people, I used Lightroom to develop 29 mystery photos submitted by members of the audience.
...Stu Maschwitz sits down to a blacked-out Lightroom catalog loaded with a couple dozen photos submitted by strangers, and one by one he unveils and processes them as the whim strikes him, providing a running commentary about his artistic reasons for doing things, or technical comments about how to achieve in Lightroom whatever look he's going for.
Adobe recorded the presentation, and has graciously allowed me to mirror the video on YouTube for easier viewing. Watch closely for a sneak peek at a forthcoming version of the Prolost Graduated Presets for Lightroom, as well as a bit of a look at how I created the Prolost Bespoke Vintage Presets.
