    VSCO used to have desktop presets for Lightroom, but discontinued them a year or so ago to focus on their mobile app. They’re no longer for sale anywhere, but if you search for “VSCO film” there are a few links floating around. There were 7 packs in total and had a pretty good range of film simulations.

    Seeing this picture again made me realize that the waves are a bit too dark imo, so I'll try decreasing the shadow levels to make them a bit brighter

    Took this back in mid January in 2018; was camping at a small rv park right near the coast up from Malibu, and got down to the beach before the sun came up. Was pretty amazing

    A few more - I'm a newb when it comes to settings, pretty much always leaving on auto, and therefore putting more effort into composition, but my goal for the next year is to finally spend time with the different settings on the camera, what they mean and what situation they're best used in

    Instead of making edits to the whole image, the radial filter lets you pick certain parts of the image to make changes to. For example, if you want to make the center of the image brighter than the rest, you can put a radial filter over the center and adjust exposure for that part only.

    This video shows it well. The whole Phlearn channel itself has really useful tutorials for learning lightroom.

    @Ferrari when I got my first DSLR, i put that sucker in M and never looked back. TBH I have no idea which dial setting is aperture priority or shutter priority. This was SUPER helpful when I moved to doing much more film.

    As I can see, there are a lot of pro photographers here. Can anyone give advice to a newbie? I can't open photos made on my new iPhone 11 using the PC. These photos have HEIC format and I need JPEG to operate with them. How can I convert these photos? I searched for this information on the internet, also asked my friends for advice. One of them told me that I can try this HEIC to JPG Converter Free Download | PC Windows 10 Software service. It looks nice, but neither me or my friend I'm telling about didn't use it either. Maybe someone knows if it's good? As I can see by reviews, this app is perfect.

    I only learned recently myself that my iPhone was taking photos in HEIC and not jpg, and it was extremely annoying. I got a new 11 back in February, and I guess on these phones the default format now is HEIC. To change this back to jpg, go to Settings, all the way down to Camera, then Formats. High Efficiency (HEIC) will be checked, but switch it to Most Compatible. If you want to shoot video at 4k levels, it forces you to switch the camera back to HEIC, which is annoying, but so rare that I'll ever shoot video with my phone, so just leave it at 1080p HD at 60 fps.

    To convert your current photos from HEIC to jpg, use this site: Free HEIC to JPEG/JPG Online Photo Conversion Tool

    Just literally drag and drop up to five photos at once into the box, and it'll convert the photos; then download them. Then repeat with the next five. Only five at once is kind of annoying, but it goes quickly.

    I wonder how much quality is lost doing it like that.

    It's so original, it seems this was missing many interesting projects in photography.

    Since traveling's a no-go for a while, I've been revisiting old trip photos and found some shots I never got around to editing until now. These are a few from a trip to Tenerife from this time last year.

    Those are sick, especially the 2nd to last one; those buildings almost look CGI-like. What are they for?

    Thanks! Those buildings house the telescopes for the Teide Observatory.

    So my personal photography site is done! Used SmugMug for the platform, and I had a small company out in California do the actual design/layout work of the site itself. www.thomasengrav.com - I modeled it after Chris Burkard's website; he's one of my fav outdoor/landscape photographers, and his site looked great, so I tried to imitate his as much as possible. SmugMug takes care of the selling, printing, and shipping of your photos, which is awesome. Everything on the site should work/function, but if you do visit and find bugs let me know! So excited!
