Photo of the Week: Nov. 1, 2008

Bicycle Racer

I’m starting something new this month! Every week you’ll see a new photo with detailed Lightroom 2 settings on how the photo was developed. There will be a before and after shot as well as screen captures of Metadata and Keywords, Crop Settings, Develop settings and any special notes which may pertain to the photo. Additionally, there will be a small collection of photos taken during the same shoot – a sort of mini-gallery.

What’s the motivation? Simply this, I spend a lot of time researching and producing new videos for this site – which means I don’t get a chance to write something as often as I’d like. With this new column, I can still offer new Lightroom content and have an excuse to get out and take some photos while I’m working on the next video. Eventually, I’m hoping this column will turn into a weekly Photo Contest where photos from visitors to this site will be featured. If this sounds interesting, write me a comment at the end of this article.

Lightroom Develop Settings

This last week, I spend some time in downtown Freising. Naturally, I had my camera along and when the rain started I just happened to be standing around (trying to keep dry) when this chap drove by on his bicycle. The camera was already set for a slow shutter speed, so I panned the camera along with him and captured this week’s photo. So, let’s see how this photo was subsequently developed in Lightroom.

Small Collection of Freising Photos

I hope you enjoy this small sampling of some of the sights in Freising. At some point in the near future I plan to do a more in-depth photo article on our beautiful city.
