Recommended Tools and Other Links
There are a number of tools that I use in my Photography and Video Workflows; I will list and talk about them here.
Click on my Luminar affiliate link above to purchase.
This is a non-destructive editor that is a good replacement to Lightroom and Photoshop if you are tired of paying for a subscriptions.
There are a number of free looks that can be applied to your pictures, as well as affordable ones for purchase in their store. Luminar 4 has an incredible sky replacement feature now built in.
Lynda.com and Youtube have a number of courses to aid in learning.
Aurora HDR 2019
This is a quick, down and dirty tool for stacking bracketed pictures for that cool HDR effect; like Luminar there are a number of looks that are easily applied and modified.
This is BlackMagic’s entry to video editing; this is the one that I use since it is quite powerful in the free version; yet, affordable for the paid version which offers additional features.
Black Magic provides training directly on their site; plus additional training can be found on Lynda.com.
New York Institute of Photography (NYIP)
There is a free version, yet Avid gets pricey when you buy it. Also, it only works on Intel based systems so it left my primary workstation out since I am AMD based.
