I've written a number or short articles on the benefits of Lightroom and how it can improve my your work flow. Previously I have concentrated on how Lightroom integrates with the Gallery 2 image gallery.
As a Pixelpost user you can also benefit from Lightroom. There is now a great little plugin that allows you to export straight from Lightroom to your Pixelpost Photoblog.
Lightroom Export Plugin is extremely easily installed into Lightroom and allows you to export files directly to Pixelpost.
The installation of the plugin is trivial and exposes these great features:
Competing in photography competitions can be a fun way to learn about photography and measure the quality of your work against others. However, finding relevant competition, which haven't finished yet can be a different matter.
Sure, Google will turn up lots of results and if you have the time to explore them you will probably find what you are looking for (eventually). But, there is an easier way.
Photocompete.com is a website that aims to list current photography competitions from around the globe in one place.
Shooting with the Olympus 40-150 (80-300mm equivalent) kit lens there are lots of occasions where I just don't have enough reach.
I am planning to get the new 50-200 SWD, EC-14 and EC-20 teleconvertors. But, still waiting on availability of the new 50-200 and EC-20 in NZ. So, after a lot of research decided to purchase the 70-300 ED lens in the interim.
While on a recent trip to Wellington my family and I went up to the top of Mt Victoria to get a cityscape of the city. It was just on Dusk and anyone who has been to Wellington can verify this - they don't call it the Windy City for nothing.
Mid-Summer and we were rugged up with jumpers and jackets, true to form it was blowing near gale force winds. The wind chill factor must have been close to zero degrees Celcius.
I have been dragging my family around the country for the past couple of years and they have learnt patience for which I am grateful. When they had all had enough they went back to the car and thawed out while I waited about another 10 minutes for the right light.
As a keen photographer I am always looking for ways to improve my work flow so that I can spend more time taking photos and less time in front of the computer processing and uploading to my online gallery.
You may recall the article I wrote a little while ago regarding the benefits of Lightroom EXIF Data and automatically naming images, adding descriptions and keywords. To build on these benefits there is a great third party export plugin now available for Gallery 2.
Lightroom-to-Gallery is extremely easily installed into Lightroom and allows you to export files directly to your Gallery 2 album (I assume that it uses the Gallery Remote protocol).
The installation of the plugin is as simple as copying a folder to the root directory of Lightroom.
