It might be time to clean the sensor of my camera again. The circles in the photo above are the spots I removed in Lightroom. They’re caused by little specks of dirt or dust on the camera sensor. Thankfully they’re really only visible when shooting with a closed down aperture like f/22. At f/8 I […]
If you updated your Mac to MacOS Sierra and you use an old version of Lightroom you may get a shock when you try to import anything. The destination and rename panels are missing from the sidebar!

It doesn’t suit all photos of course, it’s also only a starting point as you should develop your photos in […]
A thoughtful, frank video from a very talented photographer.
