In case you haven’t yet seen, I have uploaded my latest video to You Tube. This shows an element of the location where I was shooting, including the location details (I am listening). This is then followed by how I processed the image using Lightroom and Viveza.

The feedback on You Tube seems quite positive so far. Do let me know if you like this style as I will create a few more.

If you are reading this as an email, the video won’t display. Please visit the blog post or my You Tube channel to view the video.

  1. A lovely photo. Makes me wish I could walk there. Nice to see you on the video, though I have no time to see it till the end now.

  2. Like the photo and thanks for the explanation of how you processed it. You did not describe how you imported it. The implication is that, despite your recent posts on RAW converters, you are content for Lightroom to do the job with your new XT-2. Is that so?

    1. The problem with the Fuji RAW files occurs at the point of RAW conversion. As my import process is a straight copy to a storage drive, the problem happened at the point of conversion. The image I showed did have issues but for the purposes of a video demonstration it’s fine. I wouldn’t have printed from this file though. I used Lightroom for the demonstration as many people use the software and it’s very easy. My processing with Iridient or RAW Therapee would have taken slightly longer overall unless I applied one of my presets. But then that would have defeated the purpose of demonstrating the editing. I hope this makes sense.

  3. Thanks, Robin, it’s a lovely image—such beautiful country. I also enjoyed the video and, as always, learned a few things—thanks!
    Unrelated to this post, I see that Topaz Labs is offering a substantial Black Friday discount, $249 USD for the entire package. This seems to be quite a good deal and I’m tempted. What do you think. I primarily use LR for my landscape work, though I’m beginning to integrate Viveza, with the help of your tutorials. Topaz plugins might be another way to enhance my images. Any advice would be appreciated—thanks!

    1. Topaz do create some very innovative products and I use quite a few of their filters myself. Personally I think I would pick the filters you are going to need and buy those when they offer the discounts. Having said that, their deal does seem to be a good one. What I like about Topaz is their lifetime upgrade policy. It’s been very valuable to me.
