On Monday, June 17th, 2013 I had the opportunity to attend the free B&H Adobe Lightroom 5 Digital Photography Summit at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. The distinguished panelist consisted of Scott Kelby, Julieanne Kost & Katrin Eismann… All in all, this was a great event that covered a wide variety of topics in the digital photography world.
I was really impressed with the Lightroom 5 tips & tricks from each panelist. Once you watch a pro do it, it seems so much easier to do yourself. One of the tips that really stuck out was one that Scott Kelby did on Spot Visualization. We all know how to use the spot removal tool in Lightroom, but what I did not know about is while active in spot removal mode, just check the box at the bottom for Visualize Spots. The display is then changed to a black and white view and you can easily remove all dust spots.
The show had a good amount of vendors and sponsors who provided some great information on already existing products and future releases. For example, you had Adobe, Manfrotto, Tether Tools, Sony, JPEGmini and Western Digital to name a few. If you are in the NYC area, the B&H Event Space is a great way enhances your knowledge on Digital Photography.
