From B&H's YouTube Channel:
 
Join landscape photographer and Canson Infinity ambassador Robert Rodriguez Jr as he shares advanced workflows in the Lightroom 5 Develop module.
 
Creatively developing images in Lightroom is more than just optimizing tonalities and color, it entails careful interpretation of the raw file to effectively convey the essence of the image. Selective detail, subtle use of color, and local adjustments are some of the things Robert demonstrates using the tools in the develop module. He also explain why these adjustments are important and how they can contribute to better images. This is not about pre-sets, but rather being open to your personal creative vision.

Karl Taylor has posted a three-part video intereview series where he explains the lighting setups for several of his images. He does a good job of explaining the motivation behind his light modifier choices and placement.
 
Even though the series was sponsored by Broncolor to promote their specific lighting products, you can apply many of these lighting techniques using whatever flash gear you're currently using (assuming you have similar modifiers).

Please note – the profile for the newly added Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens is not automatically located when applying lens profile corrections. This is a bug and we will fix it in a future release. The workaround is to:

  • Manually select the profile and choose “Save New Lens Profile Defaults” in the Setup menu on the Profile tab. From then on, the lens should automatically select when the profile is enabled.

Bugs Corrected in Lightroom 5.6

  • Collections with a custom sort order would sometimes not properly sync with Lightroom mobile.
  • Updated the “Adobe Standard” color profile for the Nikon D810. Please note that this only impacts customers who used Camera Raw 8.6 or DNG Converter 8.6 to convert NEF raw files from the D810 to DNG
  • Star ratings set in Lightroom mobile did not properly sync to Lightroom desktop. Please note that this only occurred on images that were added to Lightroom mobile from the camera roll
  • Resolved the issues causing the persistent “Syncing … images” state that some of our customers have reported.”
  • Star ratings would sometimes not sync from Lightroom desktop to Lightroom mobile. Please note that this only occurred when attempting to sync a Collection that contained more than 100 photos that already contained star ratings.
  • Added information to the “System Info” dialogue to help designate if the customer installed Lightroom from the Creative Cloud.
  • Unable to open sRaw files from the Nikon D810. Please note that this only impacted customers that converted D810 sRaw files to DNG in either Camera Raw 8.6 RC or DNG Converter 8.6 RC.
  • Images with invalid GPS coordinates would not properly sync with Lightroom mobile
  • Lightroom occasionally crashed when changing image selection on Windows. Please note that this only occurred on the Windows platform.
  • JPEG files exported from Lightroom would not open or be available to edit within Canon Digital Photo Professional application software.
  • Lightroom would run in reduced functionality mode when it should not.

Release Notes
 
Camera Raw 8.6 adds camera matching color profiles for the following camera models:

  • Sony DSC-RX100 III
  • Sony A7S (ILCE-7S)
  • Sony Alpha SLT-A77 II (ILCA-77M2)

Camera Raw 8.6 introduces the following new features for Photoshop CC customers:

  • Improved performance when batch processing images via the Save button (in Camera Raw) and when converting images to DNG (in DNG Converter). The performance improvements are available only on 64 bit systems.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed crash on launch in some cases on Hi DPI (Retina) systems.
  • Fixed crash when opening some Sigma SD9 raw files.
  • Fixed issue with JPEG images saved by Camera Raw not readable in some external applications.
  • Fixed automatic lens profile selection for Leica M (Typ 240) when using most recent firmware version.
  • Fixed issue with some Hasselblad H5D-50c and H5D-60 3FR raw images appearing slightly too dark. Unfortunately, this fix may affect the appearance of existing images captured with this combination of settings. It is recommended that you (1) purge the Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog, and (2) review previously captured images for unexpected brightness changes.
  • Fixed bug with converting Nikon D810 and Nikon D4S sRaw files to DNG.
  • Tweaked and updated the Adobe Standard color profile for the Nikon D810. Please note that this only impacts customers that used Camera Raw 8.6 RC with the Nikon D810.

Please note – If you have trouble updating to the latest ACR update via the Creative Cloud application, please refer to the following plugin installation:

This is the Capture NX-D 1.0.1 software download - This is a update installer for Windows systems only.
 
Updates included with 1.0.1

  • When the 64-bit Windows version of the application was used to create JPEG-format files converted from RAW (.NEF/.NRW), TIFF, or JPEG images using the Convert Files... or Run Batch Process... option in the File menu, a gray band was sometimes visible at the bottom of the images when they were opened in the 64-bit Windows version of Capture NX-D. This issue has been resolved.

Download Capture NX-D 1.0.1 for Windows.

Overton County Fair 2014
Now is the time that the annual fair rolls into towns across in middle Tennessee. This year I finally remembered to bring my camera and tripod.
 
The beautiful array of colorful lights combined with the predictable motion of the rides creates the perfect opportunity for a long exposure. Here are a few tips:

  • Pack your widest focal length lenses and a tripod.
  • Arrive at the fair well before sunset. Scout out the midway and find the optimal spots for shooting your images.
  • The best opportunity for capturing images will come moments after sunset where the ambient light level and the amusement ride lights are well balanced. Have your gear set up for your first shot as the sun is dropping below the horizon.
  • Work fast. You may only get about 15 -25 minutes of optimal working time if hoping to capture detail in the sky.
  • Although somewhat counter-intuitive for low-light photography, use a narrow aperture and a low ISO allowing for the use of a relatively long shutter speed. The long shutter speed will allow the ride lights to blend together and will also allow people moving directly in front of your camera not to be recognizably recorded.
