This simple little tip will make a big impact on how you view your images. When working in the Develop Module in Lightroom tap “L” on your keyboard once to dim the filmstrip and tool panels around your image. Lights out mode (Dimmed) removes distractions but still lets you view filmstrip and tools. Tap on “L” again to completely block out the area around your image. Blocking out the area around your image removes distractions and makes it much easier to judge brightness, contrast and colour tones.
We talk to landscape photographer Jack Curran. His moving and evocative images are an example of a master in action. Jack has been shooting amazing landscapes for 40 years. He’s a multi-award-winning photographer and has been ranked as one of the top 10 landscape photographers in the world and won dozens of awards. Jack shares some great tips and insights for photographers of all levels and managed to change the way I view lighting landscapes. We cover: why landscape and why black and white, the importance of great mentors, why he doesn’t always shoot every landscape he sees, challenges of shooting landscapes, basic gear, focal length and settings, the best light for landscape photography – and much more.
