We're celebrating Christmas a week early with Lara's family.  So I'll be turning off posting in the classes from Monday morning to Wednesday evening next week (17th-19th) (approx Sunday evening to Wednesday morning USA time).  I look forward to seeing your photos in class for the rest of this week, and over the weekend, as usual.

    In that case, we'll lose those pixel rest of the way ? wouldn't that be loss ... i mean .. since this is for saving JPEG for web .. .. this is going to be save as thing and i guess thats why it's ok ?

    Figured it out. There is setting buried in .. "Show cropped Area". Every time there is update, Adobe takes liberty to update few settings for you 🙄 I checked it ... Now i can see picture like i used to see earlier and (for me) it makes much easier to crop image to my liking. I still see those crazy color blocks above in picture once in while but I guess its about my laptops processing power or cache capacity. Thank you for those steps.

    It is not going well. Since this was taking long time, i kept it on the side. (for a long long time. ). All steps are coming well except for Crop step. I want to manually decide crop. When i come to that step, all screen go to black and some color strips like it used to come on very old television sets.) when i try to change crop it goes all crazier. Attaching screenshots. This step is killing me. I got all steps in my workflow settled and once this step is done, i'll be able to start posting my pictures to facebook and instagram. Can you please help ? Probably not related to this or may be thats the issue, any Crop tool update in photoshop CC ? I don't know if its just me but earlier when i used to draw crop, i could move image or crop just fine, now ... its so annoying .. that i'm thinking to use light room just for the crop feature given how easy it is there and how painful this crop is turning out to be.

    20 % Too much faith in Tamron's Image stabilization and 80 % Overconfidence (That i'll get away with this) .. thats what killed this entire photoshoot for me. Lesson learned (pretty hard way !!). Thinking about it .. i should have just revisited .. what i was doing in terms of overall settings. .. i was very nervous that day .. got carried away .. looking at just histogram .. thinking exposure is good. .. Thank you for input though. I won't repeat this mistake again.

    I apologize in advance for intruding in question opened by Mary here, and probably this is stupid question but @Brian.. Aperture value is supposed to be for lens opening right ? (I don't know .. i'm still on single on camera flash ) but this different f stops for light got me confused. What am i missing here? even if you have 2 lights, you are going to have single lens .. and i'm totally confused as how can you have f/11 and f/8 ? or are you saying f/11 & f/8 in terms of stop from exposure/light perspective .. so you mean .. have main light on lesser stop and increase light stop on second light ? Sorry for confusion.. But i'm trying to figure out getting flash off camera .. and adding another flash and i'm not getting this point hence i'm raising this question.

    yeah i don't know what was going through my head at that time. I put ISO 800 and went to reduce shutter till 1/60th .. could have easily gone for more ISO value and kept beautiful expression... lesson learned !!

    Any hope?
  14. Thank you So much for the inputs .. As of now, i'm practicing and trying to cut down time i need to complete the editing processes. Also kind of creating checklist of "Things to watch out for" .. I add item there if i've to spend more time in editing. Hopefully i'll be ready soon.
  15. I'm not in any business or anything of that sort .. (although i'd like to do that at some point.. ) as of now i'm just shooting for friends .. and free .. but i was wondering .. Say if you take a shoot .. How many picture you offer as Fully edited (full level and skin work) . Example my friend is getting married. I kind of their pre wedding pictures to upload on their wedding website .. I ended up shooting total of 174 pictures .. 34 of them survived culling process. They would love to have it all. But it'll take way too much time for me to edit them all with full levels and skin work. How do pros do it? How many fully edited images you commit ? Do you give images those are not full edit? (if'd give just raw edits along with fully edited ones .. they are going to notice difference). Any place information like this available ? Appreciate inputs !!!
