To help get the word out about my new book The Photographer’s Guide to Luminar 4, I’ve done a couple of webinars with my friends at Rocky Nook (my publisher). If you weren’t able to watch them live, you can rewatch them here. I’ve enjoyed doing these more than I expected. I’ve appeared on many podcasts as a guest, and co-hosted the PhotoActive podcast for more than a year, and spoken at conferences—okay, yes, that sounds like a lot of experience—but doing live edits in a webinar is fairly new to me.
If you’re new to editing photos in Luminar, or you just want to see it in action, watch the first one, “Luminar 4 with Jeff Carlson.”
Based on the great feedback (and book sales!) from that webinar, we scheduled another one that gets into more advanced features, “Using Masks and Layers in Luminar 4 with Jeff Carlson.” Luminar is great for accommodating new users or people who don’t have as much photo editing experience, but there’s also a lot of depth to mine when you know what you’re doing.
And hey, that’s where the book can help out! Remember, if you purchase the book through Rocky Nook, you can save 40% off by using the code CARLSON40. The book is also available from Amazon and the Apple Bookstore.
Before the webinars, I made a short video as practice that walks through editing a single photo from start to finish: Tulip Field 11-Minute Luminar 4 Photo Edit. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this appear as a sped-up time-lapse. This was fun to put together, too. If there are any Luminar topics (or, heck, other apps), let me know in the comments below.
