Running a photography business isn’t the same as just being a photographer. Once you start your own business, you may notice that you’re struggling even though you’re seemingly doing everything right. But there’s a small, yet important change you should make to turn the things around, and Ryan of Signature Edits tells you more about it in the video below.
Back in 2017, a website popped up called WeSaturate. Its goal was to become sort of a “Pixabay for raw files” type library where people could share and download raw files to practice on. With many people unable to get out and shoot new stuff right now, it would be a valuable service if it still existed. Unfortunately, it doesn’t. WeSaturate closed down earlier this year.
Inspired by WeSaturate and the valuable resource it was for him, Ryan Brietkreutz started up a similar service on Signature Edits. It’s a website where you can download free raw files to practice your editing, as well as a YouTube channel with a bunch of tutorials offering many techniques and examples on ways you can post-process your work in Lightroom and Photoshop.
Lightroom’s Auto Mask option is a useful tool that can save you a lot of time. But this video from Signature Edits shows you how you can make the Auto Mask feature even faster and more efficient. This way you’ll be able to mask even very complex images in a few seconds, which will save you even more post-processing time.
