Introducing my first set of photography tutorials


New in 2014, I am going to start publishing tutorials around different aspects of photography.

I will begin with a series that will explain properties such as exposure, contrast, saturation, and how their manipulation affect an image.

For these tutorials I will be using Adobe Lightroom 4, as that’s the software I use for my editing, and a Nikon D600, which is the camera I own. I will refer to generally “neutral” concepts that are not product specific, so I am sure you will be mostly fine.

That said, it is a first time for me, so your invaluable feedback and encouragement will be greatly appreciated. Use the comments below each tutorial to ask questions, correct my notes or expand on them, and let’s share our combined experience and tips. After all, we all love to see and create beautiful pictures.

Now, onto the first tutorial. :-)
