When it’s just you and your subject, how do people stop their light stands from falling over?

This neat trick from photographer Anthony Morganti makes this an easy systematic task with one simple keypress. I’ve been zooming and manually dragging images around in Adobe Camera Raw for years, and never knew I could do this. Now it’ll make cleaning up images a breeze.

Even when shooting bracketed or underexposing for the highlights we may not achieve a pleasing result around the strongest light in a scene.
