Hello Adobe

Well, the day I have wondered about for a long time has finally come: the day I migrate to Adobe Lightroom 5.

I must admit that since the release of Adobe Creative Cloud, the subscription based model for software has both intrigued me and kept me skeptical, but it was certainly the right time to shift my photo management and editing over to Adobe Lightroom 5. Here are a few things that helped me make my decision and some of the great resources that I’ve used to learn Lightroom 5.

1) you don’t have to subscribe to the entire Creative Cloud for $49.99/month. I went with Adobe’s Photography package which includes Lightroom and Photoshop CC for just $9.99/month!

2) Lightroom Mobile. Being able to access my Lightroom collections from my phone is beyond useful! It’s already come in handy as I have been able to sort through photos even if I just have 10-15 minutes free.

3) Photoshop. You get the full featured version of Photoshop as part of your $9.99/month – enough said.

4) The latest version. If you’re one who likes to upgrade when a new version of the software comes out, Creative Cloud makes sure you always have the latest up-to-date software and features.

5) Lightroom’s editing features are cutting edge! Very powerful radial filters, graduated filters, healing tool, and great brush control! It’s easier than ever for me to make sure my photos (and clients) look great!

6) Adobe has some great video tutorials to get started with Lightroom!

It has certainly been an adventure transitioning everything over to Lightroom, but I am excited about the rich pipeline of features and support Adobe has coming for photographers.

Mountains and Water

We were all pretty sad to leave Powell River; It was the most relaxing Kristin and I had done in a very long time! Thanks Sam and Robin for graciously hosting us and taking us to the beach 5 times in 4 days!!

During one of the two ferry rides back to Vancouver I decided to go up on deck and grab a few shots if the beautiful mountains as they crashed down into the Pacific Ocean. The BC Landscape never ceases to amaze me!

Sunset at the Richmond Dyke

First off, huge thanks to my friend Julio for inviting me out to the Richmond dyke to take some photos of the sunset. Located right across the water from the Vancouver International Airport, watching planes take off and land against this creamy sky backdrop was spectacular. Armed with the 5D Mark II, 60D, and my GoPro Hero3+ I came out with some sweet time lapse video! Although I did focus primarily on timelapse, I managed to snap a few photos as well.

(Stay tuned for the  time-lapse videos to come!)

The Grouse Grind

During part of our vacation last month in BC, I decided to tackle the famous Grouse Grind. It had been years since I faced the gruelling hike that climbs 853 meters of vertical in just 2.9 kilometres of trail. This 2800 ft elevation gain is an amazing experience that pushes you physically and mentally. Once you finish the hike you are rewarded with a birds eye view of Vancouver and the amenities of Grouse Mountain. Here’s some photos and a short video I threw together of Julio’s and my morning trip to the peak of Vancouver. it was not only a great hike, but a great opportunity for me to try out my new GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition! (neither disappointed)
