The awesome folks at B&H Photo have just posted four videos covering the ENTIRE full-day Lightroom Digital Photography Summit (the one held in New York City last month to celebrate the launch of Lightroom 5).

This was the all-day event featuring Julieanne Kost, Katrin Eismann, and me, showing the coolest new features in Lightroom 5; lots of Lightroom tips and hidden tricks; and in one session we did a live shoot on stage and I handed the retouching and effects over to Julieanne and Katrin (who did a remarkable job). The day was fun, informative, and it’s all brought to you FREE by our friends at B&H Photo, and the Summit’s official sponsors Adobe Systems and Canon.

Here’s the link to check out the videos from the event.

Thanks to David Brommer and everyone at B&H who worked so hard to make this very cool event happen (and to their video crew for bringing you the rebroadcast), and to everyone who came to the live event itself. Stuff like this only happens at B&H. You guys rock! 

Hope everybody has a great Monday
I’m out in Colorado Springs today for my “Shoot like a Pro” tour — next stop: San Antonio August 16th, and Indianapolis on August 21st. Hey, if you’re at my seminar today, make sure you come up and say “hi.” Cheers, -Scott

  1. Happy to be at your seminar today! Worth the drive. :-) — forgot my two Kelby books, though — kicking myself endlessly for that!!! Will have to find a way to get those signed in Vegas as PSW maybe!

    See you soon!

  2. “Free Stuff Thursday” comes on Monday – Wahoo!!

  3. Thanks Scott, that seminar was the highlight of June. To all reading the above post, if you think B&H is cool and rocks- try dealing and putting something together with the Kelby Media group, now that’s professional and cool to boot. THOSE GUYS ROCK!

  4. Your SLAP seminar was excellent! Thanks Scott!

  5. Excellent video, love this and it is extremely helpful for all levels of photographers More Photography Tips

  6. Hi Scott

    I can’t get the Tone Curve in Lightroom to do what you did in your demo at B&H regarding the back screen effect. It won’t let me drag the lowest point on the curve straight up as you did in the demo. It only goes a little ways and then won’t let me go further.
    Interestingly, I get it to work in the Photoshop Tone Curve! Help!!

    • Bill,
      Check that you are in the proper mode of the Tone Curve. Here is how you tell:
      Under the Curve Box.. if you see the word Region with some sliders underneath it… then you are in the wrong mode.

      To get out simply click the tiny Tone Curve icon in the very bottom right of the tone curve dialogue panel.

      That should do it. Let me know.
