Show #60–Lightroom Develop Module
Host Mike Howard, Tim Kemperle and Kathleen Bowie do a detailed walk through of Lightroom 4’s Develop Module.
This was a LONG show and we had a few issues, but it’s a show well worth watching all the way through.
Prior to jumping fully into Lightroom, we had a special appearance by Morgan Kervin and Melissa van Ruiten about the charity “The Gold Hope Project”. The Gold Hope Project is “ a group of photographers that have come together to capture the moments that your family holds so dear to their heart. Some of us have been touched by the presence of cancer, and some have not, but we have all been given a gift that we would like to share with you.”

In addition, meet Ava, a sweet little girl!
White Balance – select a neutral area…using the RGB values…getting the three numbers close. Once you click on the section with will change the White Balance to the correct temperature. The selected photo became much warmer.
Contrast Slider – Puts a S curve around the mid-tones,
White / Blacks Sliders – Works like levels adjustment in Photoshop
Clarity –Increasing or decreasing the emphasis of a picture…you need to zoom in to ensure the impact is what you intend…look for haloing in the image.
Saturation – Richness of the colors
Vibrance – Increases the colors of the colors that are not saturated…will ignore skin tones of the subject
Tone Curve – Contains four parts:
HSL – Hue_Saturation_Luminance / Color / B&W – Kathleen spends the most time in HSL, use the picker toggle, select a point in the photo and slide up or down to change the intensity to the photo.
Pick (P) / Reject (X) – Used to cull photos after import, once the photos are “rejected” you can select from the menu, Photo / Delete Rejected Photos
Survey – Used when you have multiple photos of the same shot…select photos and then highlight a picture and select X and you will slowly eliminate photos until you have the most desired photo
