NAPP - Lightroom 5 Killer Tips by Scott Kelby

Sarson Ka Saag

Day two of Lightroom. More than the editing tool I’m finding that the catalog function is extremely useful. After importing the photos you can add key words and then create folders to filter through key words. The initial set up is gong to take time, but once it’s done it’ll be easy to find my photos. Does anyone have any suggestions on improving this image? I was thinking the increase the exposure, but the whites might blow out.

I need to do a recipe. Coming soon one of my favorite Indian foods Sarson Ka Saag, also known as a curry of mustard greens.

  1. Almost anything is a pain in the neck until you get it set up, once that is done it will be a breeze to deal with. I give support to parents and part of that support is that I have over 6,000 parenting articles on a full range of topics from ‘abuse’ to ‘yelling.’ once I figured out how to do it it was easy.

    By the way, I love healthy Indian foods. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Do you mean you set up those articles in Lightroom, or do you mean just setting up a catalog in general? Either way, the initial set up and learning curve lead to a smooth downhill ride — or at least I’m hoping. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • No, not in Lightroom. I created a method of my own to organize all those articles. When a parent contacts me I can find the information they need in a couple of minutes. What I was saying is that once you get the method down, it should be easy to work it after that.


  2. Glad to hear you are working with your beautiful photos. You asked about suggestions for your image. Not sure what sort of lighting you used, but it I find it always helps to use back lighting for my food photos. And to use a white board to reflect light and reduce shadows. I have been rereading the following book lately and it is very helpful: Food Photography by Nicole S. Young.

    • Thank you for taking the time to comment.

      For those photos (and a few to come) I placed the plate by the window and just shot. When I have more time I set up the tripod and try to be more careful — but I want to eat. Now! (or then, hehehehe)

      That’s the hardest thing about taking pics of food. Either I cook early and shoot or shoot leftovers. Any time in between all I hear is ‘hurry up’. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I will look on Amazon for the book. ๐Ÿ™‚
