Landscape Photography. The Lighthouse At Twr Mawr, Lightroom Workflow




This video hows my workflow to create an image of Twr Mawr Light house On Llanddwyn Island off the coast of Anglesey. I go through merging of two images to extend dynamic range of the image and the little tweaks i utilise to get the most out of the photograph .

One of the images in the video was shortlisted for the Daily Telegraph Big Picture.. link http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/the-big-picture/the-big-picture-photography-competition–round-418/paul-johnson/

  1. great video Paul – really useful to me in terms of developing a workflow in LR and into PS – like you I aim to keep images looking real and close to what they represent, v similar style, so your workflow is similar to mine. however, learned heaps here and will adjust my flow – really would love to see you doing more of this type of video

  2. Sorry, but I don't think much of your finished image. It doesn't look realistic and you have blown out much of the righthand side of the image. You could have done a much better job of getting an even exposure with selective use of different grad filters

  3. Excellent video Paul. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction – not sure how I missed this one. Such a big help seeing your work flow. Lovely final image too 👍👍

  4. Hi Paul, would you recommend using Active D Lighting? I've heard that it improves the dynamic range but apparently it can make images very noisy. I'm also not sure if it works with Raw images (I obviously shoot Raw) Thanks

  5. Sadly, as you may have seen, I am guilty of over cooking my pictures. No excuse but I think it came from an iPhone photography project I did a few years back where I shot loads of images using those weird camera apps and I began to like them. As I rarely get to choose when I get out into the landscape, I have to work with many images took in horrible flat lighting and my natural instinct is to 'add a big spoon of chilli to the shepherds pie', so to speak. I can fully understand your reasoning behind this shot and it will make me think harder on my next outing to tailor the images more in the shooting stage that will enable me to get a more natural look. Never blended images like this before other than to make heavy HDR so thanks for the 'reality' check 😊

  6. Very nice composition, may go there tomorrow if health up to it. Edit my pictures almost exactly the same and nice to see you look at details such as the rocks. If I'm only doing one stop bracketing I often do a "blend if" in Photoshop, but if you use that for anything above the two stop difference you get with one stop bracketing it takes on that horrible fake plasticky HDR effect. Subscribed.

  7. Nice to see how you work with your shots Paul,i live in the Brecon Beacons and was only looking at visiting Ynys Llanddwyn last night so glad to see you've been there.I do my lightroom editing a lot the same as you.I try to get the shot the way i want it in my D800 first,that way there's not to much to edit.keep up the great work,and see you in the next one .
