Luther and some Lightroom Lovin’

Ok so at the time of writing this post it’s getting kind of late so I’ll keep it brief so that I can get as much beauty sleep as I possibly can…(need) 🙂

First off, the photograph above is one taken this week in the studio with Singer, Entertainer and Luther Vandross Impressionist Harry Cambridge. It just so happens that Harry is a very good friend of my good buddy and assistant Neal Hibbert, and the shoot was arranged in order to put together some new promotional material for him.

As is always the case, we had a total blast and at times during the shoot were treated to our own personal concert as Harry belted out some incredible vocals. Shot using a couple of set ups, I’ll be sure to cover them in detail including the editing in a later post.

This past few days there have been some great posts published across some of the blogs that I read on a regular basis so I thought I’d list a few of them here for you to take a look through, if you haven’t seen them already:

A.J. Wood
My buddy A.J. has a post on his blog titled “Lightroom vs Adobe Bridge”. This is an update to a post originally written for the TipSquirrel website and is as the title says…a great comparison between the two pieces of software; definitely worth a read [Link]

Terry White:
Great video put together by Adobe Guru Terry White showing the advantages of using ‘Virtual Copies’ in Lightroom 3:

Incidentally Terry has two websites that I’d highly recommend adding to your reading list:

  • Terry White’s Tech Blog [Link]
  • Best App Site (For the iPhone & iPad users) [Link]

Lightroom Secrets
Interesting read over on the Lightroom Secrets blog about Keywords and Exporting Images [Link]

Lightroom Killer Tips
Lastly, Matt Kloskowki over at the Lightroom Killer Tips blog has a great post titled “The Easiest Way to Share Lightroom Catalogs with Different Computers”; the post title speak for itself, is short and to the point…definitely worth a read [Link]

Talking of Matt Kloskowki and Lightroom Killer Tips, if you are a Lightroom user then this site is well worth adding to your reading schedule too. A wealth of learning the site is updated on a regular basis with hints, tips, videos and free presets:

Right, I’m off to study the back of my eyelids so I’ll catch you later.
Enjoy 🙂

    Yet again Glyn great blog and fab picture! Well done..! His eyes look amazing and I love his jacket!

      Thanks Chanel 🙂 Harry was such good fun to photograph and to hear him singing too was an added treat.

      Lots of images to sort through and edit including some in his Fireman’s Uniform so I’ll be sure to post them online in a few days.

      Hope all is well,
      Speak soon,

    I love that portrait Glyn, the best compliment I can give you is I wish I”d taken it myself! Did you use one of your masking techniques to ‘spot blue’ the background? Cheers Neil

    • Glyn

      @Neil…Thanks for that mate; really good of you to say so 🙂
      Oh and that’s a big ‘Yes’ re the background.

    Glyn I am so looking forward to the full Harry post, I remember him on the TV prog and what a great voice so I’m sure you had a blast shooting him and I bet you have some great pics to show us, Lyn and Nic are looking forward to the uniform pics, don’t know why ?

    • Glyn

      @Keith…i’m guessing it will be posted on Wednesday (fingers crossed). Next week is a ‘Photo Shoot Technique and Editing Love Fest’ as I’ll be posting a couple online with ‘walk throughs’ 🙂
