Here’s a compilation, put together by Darlene Hildebrand, which wonderfully demonstrates how powerful a single photograph can be. Take a look. Exactly why does each photo have such an impact? What emotion does each raise in you and is that what makes it so important, or is there another reason?
Which other, recent photos would you add to this list?
Of course you didn’t know it. This feature has only just been added to Lightroom Classic.
While in the Develop module, and the Basic panel, hold down the Shift key and double click any one of the sliders – it will move to the position it would have assumed if you had chosen the Auto button to start off your developing.
Here’s a link to a more detailed explanation from Peta Pixel.

Jump on over to the Bridge Lake Photo Group website to see what members have been up to. Lots of new photos for your viewing pleasure.
Here’s a bunch of simple ideas from photographer Mark Hamblin which will help you make beautiful impressionistic images from very simple double exposures.
For example, set up a scene, set your camera to take a double exposure, take the first photo, slightly de-focus your camera and take the second photo. Why not give it a try?
If we look at a landscape photo and the horizon isn’t level. it almost immediately and uncomfortably catches our eye and distracts us from appreciating the subject.
As photographers, it is important then that we make sure our photos are level. Many cameras have a built-in level, or you can use a bubble level on your tripod. Or you can correct an off-kilter image in post-processing. Easy eh?
Well, not quite so fast as this article from Photography Life shows.
Not everyone likes Facebook. In fact, although hundreds of millions of people around the world are members, there are other substantial numbers who abhor social media, including Facebook, and want no part of it. Nevertheless, bear with me.
Landscapes Canada is a Facebook group which, as it name makes obvious, is devoted to showing Canadian landscape photographs taken by its members.
Why look at it?
Well, first, it shows some stunningly beautiful places in our country, many of them worth a visit. But it also shows how ordinary landscapes, such as your neighbourhood, can be the subject of excellent landscape photos.
Second, it features many fine Canadian photographers, which is inspiring in itself.
So, if you have an interest in landscape photography check out the link.
