    I do, but other than shooting the same decorations I've shot several times before there's not really much for me to take pics of ;) I'm sure something will grab my attention sooner rather than later (y)

    Personally I’d dial in -2 exposure comp on an image like that and go from there. Far quicker in practice out in the field at say a wedding than faffing with metering settings. But if you’re not rushed, then it does work well.

    I’m a bit like that at the moment. Hopefully go for a wander before xmas, but the weekends are looking busy with socialising

    Thanks, I purposely wanted the 3 changing cabins in shot with the life savers lookout hut in the background thus linking the subjects.

    Wouldn’t get out of bed for that

    Joking aside, it’s a great gig for someone with no ties. I’ll see if the missus wants a break later

    I’d certainly sever all existing ties for that gig. Just don’t tell SWMBO! :D

    Anyone else's misses insistent on watching as you edit pictures of the kids (or family).

    Did a few shots yesterday for some family christmas presents. Went upstairs and wanted to do some editing, she decides to come to bed too, then see's what i'm doing.... "oh you're editing pictures"... then decides to sit next to me commenting on everything i'm doing.

    So i was finishing an edit and noticed the white balance was off slightly, so sampled off someones white of the eye, which sent it to a red cast just to get an immediate reaction "OH I'M NOT KEEN O N THAT FILTER"... they are not f***ing filters, and obviously i'm not going to leave it looking like everyone has just been sat on the sun for the last 3 days. :mad:

    I have to show the pictures first then show the edits. Then the cull before I upload to Facebook. If I want to upload to Flickr and post on here. Then that's a whole new cull

    The best thing I ever did was sit down and edit some holiday photographs with my wife. She’d taken them and wanted to go through the editing process with me. She saw what went into it and hasn’t made any comments about me spending too much time on the computer anymore :D I tend to have presets for a lot of things now that speeds things up exponentially so I don’t spend as much time in front of the computer these days anyway!

    You need to buy yourself the latest Scott Kelby book on LR. In valuable to begin with. What do you struggle with?

    Ahhhh that might slow you down then! If you aren’t already you can speed things up in actions though, and if you need to do a full folder of the same adjustments you can just batch it through automatically. I tend to do this for sharpening and saving for web sizes :)

    Ditto. Output sharpening in LR is still poor.

    Which method are you using? I’ve always just used High Pass but I’m fully aware there are others too, high pass has always just worked nicely for me, just have 3/4 actions set up with different percentages set up :)

    I have an action for web sizing and sharpening. For printing large, I’ll do that manually in PS and do use a combination of high pass and smart sharpening. Tend to use high pass for selective sharpening if there’s something specific needing it, but very rare.

    I don’t find the need for anything more than USM for web output. As part of the initial RAW processing there’s some LR sharpening but for web images I’ll create a folder of full JPEG’s then run that through the automate process in PS.

    I did try mogrify but I couldn’t get the images to look as good as the USM sharpening in PS.
