From the Joe McNally YouTube Channel:
 
A true test of the radio capabilities of the SB-5000. At night, helicopter to helicopter, exceeding the triggering distance I thought possible. This short video is technical in nature, and shows the placement and progress of lighting the helicopter. We used four SB-5000 Speedlights to get the interior lit before taking off over the NYC skyline.

In the video above, Julieanne Kost, Principal Digital Imaging Evangelist for Adobe, explains the primary differences between the new Lightroom CC and the older Lightroom Classic CC (the program we're all familiar with), and which type of user may benefit from using each program.
 
In the video, we learn that the following features are not yet found in the new Lightroom CC:
 
Lightroom Classic CC Features Not Available In Lightroom CC
 
  • Tone Curve and Split Tone Panels
  • Camera profiles and soft proofing
  • Snapshots or a History Panel
  • Hierarchical keywords
  • Extended metadata support
  • PhotoMerge
  • Smart Collections, custom sort orders
  • Survey, compare, or reference view
  • Robust batch processing
  • Support for 3rd party plug-ins
  • Print, Book, Slideshow and Map creations
  • Color and Luminance Range Masking
If any of the above features are necessary for your workflow, the program formerly known as Lightroom CC – now called Lightroom Classic CC – is still there for you. And the really good news is that the newest iteration of the desktop-centric program has been upgraded for faster performance (in my limited tests so far, the difference was noticeable). If you need to have access to your full resolution files across multiple platforms (desktop/laptop, especially), then using the new Lightroom CC will make a lot of sense. And keep in mind, this is the first version of the cloud-centric Lightroom CC. The list of unavailable features will likely diminish over time as the new program is updated.
 
Thoughts on Repurposing the "Lightroom CC" Name
 
I've been a big proponent of Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription model since the early days of its existence because, from a consumer's standpoint, I think the Photography Plan (Photoshop + Lightroom) makes a lot of sense. It's easily the most productive $9.99 I spend each month.
 
But I must admit to being completely baffled by Adobe's decision to take the name of a well known program, give it to a new (very similar) program, and then rename the old program. It's very confusing (to put it mildly).
 
Let's say you want to start using the new Lightroom CC but its new interface seems a bit confusing for you, especially as you're used to the Lightroom Classic CC. Try typing in "Adobe Lightroom CC Tutorial" into YouTube and you will undoubtedly be presented with a hundred videos with similar titles. However, determining which of the instructional videos will be providing information relating to the "new" Lightroom CC will be, at best, challenging.
 
As Shakespeare penned, "That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet." That may be true, but there are expectations that come with a well known name. If florists started calling carnations "roses" and roses "classic roses" tomorrow, we'd all be just as bewildered. [Sean]

Being red/green colorblind, I'm always interested in new, easy to understand, technically precise ways of color balancing as opposed to just eyeballing it. One method that's helped me over the years is to use a color calibration target, like the X-rite ColorChecker Passport. However, for times when I either forget to photograph the color target or else forget to bring it with me, using a 50% gray layer in Photoshop along with a difference blending mode could enable me to achieve reasonably color balanced results without the calibration target. [Sean]
 
From the PiXimperfect YouTube Channel:
 
Just ONE-CLICK and All Your Colors Fall into Place! Learn how to automatically perform Color Correction using Curves in Photoshop within seconds! Whether you have a gray area to sample from or not, in this video, we will learn a very essential technique and the concept behind the same to allow Photoshop to figure out automatically the areas that you can sample from for accurate color correction. The video is a bit long (the narrator describes three different ways to create a 50% gray layer and constantly reiterates certain points), but... it's worth watching to fully understand the concept.
 
In this video, we will dive deep into the concept of "Difference" blend mode and how it can help us to remove unwanted color casts by figuring out the right areas for sampling. I hope this video helps you. Thank you for watching.

From the f64 Academy:
 
So what if I told you there was a second dimension of data in your photos that can help you make the most accurate color correction ever? You probably wouldn't believe me because it is a bold statement and you might not be as into Sci-Fi as I am. However, this other dimension is not in a galaxy far far away as it sounds, it is as simple as inverting your photo to access it.

From The Art of Photography YouTube Channel:
 
One of my favorite features in Adobe Lightroom is the mobile syncing function. My favorite use in addition to syncing to the mobile app is the ability to create web galleries that automatically sync to your edits. This is particularly useful in collaboration situations when working with a client. In this tutorial I will show you how to create these.

From the Adorama YouTube Channel:
 
The German Roamers are a group of 14 photographers who are some of the best German outdoor photographers on Instagram. They love showing their audiences the wonderful nature of Germany but they have also created a place for inspiration, exchange and community.
 
In addition, the quality of photography plays a central role. All members embody a new visual language, which is not found in classical landscape photography. It is about transporting passion and authenticity in the images, building a link to the respective motif and going new ways - in the truest sense of the word.
 
Thus, the German Roamers would like to be perceived as a collective that understands the world around them in first-class, unique images. In Germany as well as all countries of the world.

In this Photoshop tutorial, we will break down five different techniques that you can use to change the color of any object in Photoshop. We will look at the simple masked Hue/Sat adjustment layer, the Color and Hue blend modes, converting white (or black) to a color, targeting an individual color channel, and using the LAB mode readout to use Curves and change a color to exactly match what you want. By the end of this tutorial, you’ll have a whole bag of tricks that you will be able to use to change the color of anything while working with Photoshop.
