Hi everybody!

We have recently launched a new website, after more than two years of planning, false starts, building and tweaking – it has been a somewhat painful experience at times, but we got there!

Anyway, part of this new website is our Blog.  So far Sarah & I have been posting daily for over three weeks and I can’t see that easing up in a hurry – we have so many great new images to share along with a backlog of gear reviews to write, and heaps of  New Zealand travel and photography advice to dispense!

So the terribly neglected Photo Autocracy will be segueing into a ‘blog about a blog’ – I will post links to our articles here and hopefully keep you all happy!

Head on over to read all about the making of today’s image – enjoy!

Cheers – Todd (and Sarah)

 

 

The Shadows Slider – Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4’s Killer Upgrade Feature

Lightroom 4 Shadows Test

Exposures (and subjects) don’t get much worse than this. Lightroom 3 left us with a sow’s ear – can Adobe Lightroom 4 make us a shiny new silk purse? – Well, I guess the answer is fairly obvious, otherwise what would be the point of this post eh?…….

 

If you are a Lightroom 3 user wondering whether it is worth making the upgrade leap to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 you will want to have a look at my review of the newly re-invigorated Shadows Slider.

There are a pile of excellent tweaks to Lightroom in version 4 but the Shadows Slider is da bomb.

I have just completed a little review on sisson| photos of New Zealand  showing the power of LR4’s newly anointed shadow busting powers – the results will amaze.  As I am prone to saying, check it out….

Welcome one and all to my Wednesday Wallpaper – on Thursday – although I’m sure it is still hump day somewhere….

This was made a couple of year’s back on a very productive three day trip up to Kaikoura, on the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island.  You can view many more New Zealand photos over on our website.

If you are wanting this puppy as a desktop or iPad wallpaper,  you will need to grab the large version from this link:  [free iPad wallpaper] Password = freewallpaper
