In this video, I show how to automatically level your pictures, and fix the perspective using the new Upright feature in Adobe Lightroom 5.
In this video, I show how to use the Healing Brush in Adobe Lightroom 5. You can use it to fix blemishes, remove unwanted objects, persons, and even foxes! If you’re used to using it in Adobe Photoshop, it’s basically the same thing, except now you can do it all in Lightroom 5.
In this video, I show how to automatically synch audio and video files in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. You no longer have to do it manually.
The big advantage to merging the files like this is you can very easily move and cut the video and audio files as a single block, making your editing much easier.
From my experience, it doesn’t work 100% of the time, but it works often enough that it’s worth taking the 5 secs to try it.
In this video, I show how to use the new Lumetri Looks in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. These allow you to apply a very quick color correction to achieve specific looks, from cinematic to sepia.
In this video, I show a new feature which comes with Adobe Premiere Pro CC: the ability to add a Look up table (LUT) without any external plugins.
I find it much easier to use than the LUT buddy, taking only a few seconds to apply the effect, select the LUT file, and you’re done.
In this video, I show how to output an Adobe Premiere Elements video to a format that’s YouTube friendly.
Until I upgraded to CS6, Adobe Premiere Elements is what I used for my videos. It is a great tool which allows you to do some very amazing things, but it took me a lot of experimenting before I got exporting videos right. Here I show my workflow when exporting videos.
Later this week I will most likely post a video on how to do the same in Adobe Premiere CS6 and Adobe Media Encoder.
In this video, I show how to place a lapel or lavalier microphone to prevent wind noise coming from a talent’s breathing.
In this video, I show the tests I do to a lens when I receive it. From ISO 12233 tests to focus tests, without forgetting IS, aperture. This ensures that your lenses are working properly.
In this video, I show how to record in stereo using only one microphone. This will save you a bit of time in post-production, and ensure that sound will come out of both speakers.
In the next video, I will show how to duplicate the channels of an audio file that was recorded on only one channel.
Filmed using the Canon T2i with a 50mm f/1.8 and the Neewer Lapel Microphone plugged directly into the T2i.
Thank you for watching!
