Did you know that you don’t need an Adobe Stock subscription in order to access a bunch of high-quality stock photos? I had no idea, but I just learned it from Anthony Morganti and thought it would be worth sharing. If you’re an Adobe CC subscriber, that’s all you need to download photos from its stock library, and Anthony will show you how in his latest video.
This kind of struck me as a little bit weird at first. Mostly because it was something I’d never even considered. Toning, sure, but split toning the shadows and highlights separately on a black and white image that doesn’t actually have any native colour whatsoever? Yeah, kinda weird. But the more I watched this video from photographer Anthony Morganti, the more it intrigued me.
It’s an interesting idea, to add colour to a black & white image – and not in the colourising sense, but doing the same kind of shadow and highlight tints we might typically do to a colour image or video sequence. For stills, though, in Lightroom, it’s pretty easy to do, too.
There’s no doubt that artificial intelligence is becoming more and more used in photography and photo editing. But can in compensate for cheap and not so great gear? More specifically, can AI help you get sharp photos even with a soft lens? In this video, Anthony Morganti addresses this question and shows you how to sharpen your images even if your lens is not the sharpest there is.
Editing photos in Lightroom is my favorite, other than shooting them. It’s fast and convenient, and I try to do as much as I can here so oftentimes I don’t even have to use Photoshop. In this video, Anthony Morganti has a treat for all portrait photographers and retouchers who need a quick way to soften skin. In Lightroom, you can do it pretty much with one click, and Anthony will show you how.
Some photos look way better in black and white than they would in color. And yet, the others totally lose their appeal after you convert them to black and white. Knowing how to see in black and white and when it will work is a useful skill to have as a photographer. And in this video, Anthony Morganti will teach you how to develop it.
Chromatic aberration is a common (and annoying) lens problem. It causes the objects in your image to have colored lines, usually purple or green. Fortunately, you can easily remove it in Lightroom, but sometimes it can be difficult to detect the issue. Photographer Anthony Morganti shows you how to spot chromatic aberration in your photos using Alt/Option key, and how to remove it and get the best results.
