Kelby Training

Lightroom CC on an OLD Macbook Pro

Lightroom CC was just released and is getting a lot of hype. Kelby Training did a special webinar on it and posts from photographers have flooded the internet. However, the one major thing that no one answered for me was “Would this new program work on my outdated computer?”

This new release of Lightroom is much like Photoshop where it is a separate install. That had me worried a little bit as I knew that at least Lightroom 5 ran on my current system. It is slow but reliable. I had no idea what was going to happen when I installed Lightroom CC.


Kelby Training

Recently, on one of the many Facebook groups that I read, someone was asking about Kelby Training. They were wondering if it was worth the money or not. In short, I believe it is… if you want to commit to learning and the time.

Disclaimer: Kelby Training did not pay me for this post. I am merely posting it to help direct people over that way who are considering getting a subscription. They have not given me anything to say these nice things, I am just saying them because I am extremely satisfied with their courses and online training.

What I mean by this is if you are just looking for some quick tips, they have those but the real value for you is in the courses that are  designed like a real photography course with materials to download and step-by-step instruction. It takes some time, often a few hours to get through each of the courses and you really start to see the value in it.


Sunday Reading Posts

In this new section in the Sajin, I am going to review the vast library of ebooks that I have collected over the past few years. I feel that these are a great way to spend a sunday evening after a great weekend. Typically, I read everything that I can on the different subjects that will promote my craft and give me the tools to be a better photographer. Now, these won’t always be directly on the topic of photography but they will be on topics that will help you get your name out, improve your blog and handle your business.

The purpose of this new section to The Sajin is to address the growing demand in Korea for english-language materials to aid in helping with the above topics and to showcase the ever-growing electronic library of excellent material that talented photographers, bloggers, and other smart people have been creating.


Photography Resources for Photographers in KOREA

One of the biggest challenges about being a photographer in Korea is skill development. There are a ton of great photographers and clubs here but the language barrier is often a challenge. However there are a ton of great resources in Korea and on the web to help you develop your skill to its highest Potential.

Food Photography Part 1

 

 

Before I begin, take some time to read Joe McPherson’s article on the most recent attempt at the globalization of  Korean food. Now you can see the connection to all the hamburgers, being that this is a blog on photography in Korea.

In order to make decent food photography you  must first figure out what types of shots you are looking to get. For me there are usually about two types (from my perspective anyway). The first type is the commercial grade/ magazine style food photography and the second is the “food I have eaten” style food photography.
