Chris uses Lightroom and he has ever since the first beta. He also teaches Lightroom and has created a video workshop at DiscoverLightroom.com. He also has different price levels depending on which kind of photographer you see yourself as. There's 6 1/2 hours of instruction and Chris is even working on a new app which will cover it. Leo says that to do something more advanced than just organizing your photos, what can you use? Chris says that LIghtroom does far more than just organizing your photos. Filters, editing, and a lot of other features make it worth it.

Chris also has a myth to bust. This one is about artificial light sources. Sometimes you can't get the colors just right when correcting. There's a big difference in color temperature or light spectrum between incandescent lights and LED lights. Daylight is the best quality of light and offers the continuous spectrum of color. But Incandescent Lights have a complete spectrum as well, even though there's a greater red color. This is easy to correct, though. The problem with LEDs and CFLs is that they have a non continuous spectrum. It isn't complete. But doing a good white balance can help.

Don't forget our current assignment - DEPARTURE! Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "departure" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "departure" as well! If Chris likes it, it could end up on our next photo segment!
