New York City-based wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer starts this very informative tutorial with a piece of information familiar to any photographer—most of your time working on a job will be spent in front of a computer. Therefore, it is crucial to develop a system to streamline your workflow while guaranteeing the safety of your images. Using Carbon Copy Cloner to back up images, Brenizer then edits with Photo Mechanic and begins to process images in Lightroom, where he provides detailed and nuanced explanations of the tools available to quickly and effectively get the most from your large group of photos. He then moves to Photoshop for specific detailed fixes that would take longer in Lightroom. Tips regarding the light qualities of specific cameras, measuring white balance on black items, batch processing, and “editing in” go a long way to speed your process and improve your images and overall presentation.

Moderated by Larry Becker, photographer Gregory Heisler and Canon Technical Advisor Rudy Winston have a live discussion about the new Canon 5DS and 5DS R digital cameras. These cameras have already created a year’s worth of buzz with their 50.6MP sensor, as well as anti-vibration and shutter design improvements. The 5DS R distinguishes itself from the 5D S with a filter design that cancels the optical low pass filter effect for even finer details. Heisler speaks of his time using the cameras and compares them to the 5D Mark III in terms of handling, shooting, and resolution. Rudy Winston, the “Yoda of Canon,” talks about the demand for higher-resolution cameras, of Canon’s in-house sensor manufacturing and of where these new cameras stand in the lineup of Canon’s professional DSLRs. He also details the technical aspects that differentiate the two cameras and Heisler shows the sample images he shot with them, and speaks on the importance of eyelashes and nostril silia.

Ryan Brenizer offers five deceptively simple ideas to improve your lighting when shooting weddings and, with one glance at his dramatic and subtle lighting effects, it becomes clear that these ideas, when executed properly, will create gorgeous images. Brenizer likes to travel light and his tips often involve using speedlights, whether on camera or off. Creating effective backlight is a specialty of his and “playing billiards with light” refers to the way he bounces light from walls and ceilings for flattering illumination. He also discusses the benefits of continuous light—from any source—and the way you can make (or break) a photo by positioning a light close to your subject.

He also provides several very practical tips and notes on his gear choices, but also makes it clear that while quality lenses and sensors are important, a good photo must happen first in the mind of the photographer.
