Each lesson starts with Lisa Bettany and I in some kind of photographic situation, out in the wild with our cameras talking about the shots we’re attempting to capture. Then I take you back to my studio to see how I try to make a little magic happen!

He covers composition, color, light, and inspiration. He’ll show you tips & tricks for Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Photomatix. We’ve also included a free trial and tutorial for his new favorite tool, Aurora HDR 2017 for Macs (Windows version is coming).

This tutorial is specifically for using Aurora HDR 2017 on a Mac. I developed this HDR software along with Macphun. I created a detailed video tutorial (50+ mins) to show how I use Aurora HDR Pro in practically every situation! From outdoors to indoors to mixes to architecture to moving objects to single photos and everything in between. As usual, I begin very slowly, aimed at total beginners, then I move on to intermediate and advanced techniques.
