This is the Black and White Sunday blog hop post! Week 70 for NewfandHound! Thank you to our hosts Dachshund Nola and Sugar The Golden Retriever for setting this up for all of us every Sunday. Please see one of their blogs for more information on the blog hop and how to join.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I've been listening to photography podcasts like Improve Photography and now Full Time Photographer, but then I found a few great post-processing videos on You Tube by the wonderful Australian pet photographer Charlotte Reeves. I especially liked her Lightroom 5 Workflow tutorial and the Removing Colour Casts in Photoshop tutorial! The bluish tint the black dogs in some of my photographs have been driving me crazy so this video is a great way to get rid of those color casts and bring out the black in our dogs. Plus, I'm continuing my quest of learning more about Lightroom so to see how a professional culls through photographs quickly and efficiently is very educational.
One other blog post I read last week by Dana Cubbage (Post-Processing Workflow For Pet Photography), had a critical tip that was actually in one of the Improve Photography podcasts also: If you have a camera with two card slots, save your shots to each card so that you have a backup copy if one of your cards fails. Brilliant idea because cards can fail and then you are left with nothing! She also has some great advice on storing photos and file management that you may find useful also.
