Tune in for topics that will help you learn, grow and be inspired to create new photographs. The show features conversations with top-level photographers, new-comers, and everything in between. We can gain new insights from all levels of photographers. Also, I occasionally bring on industry leaders to share about their product or service if it's valuable to the outdoor photographer. And sometimes I simply tell my stories from the road as well.

    Planning, Shooting and Processing Timelapse Photographs

    It’s kind of interesting how the topic of timelapse has turned into the longest episode of this podcast. But that’s alright. There’s a lot here, starting with setting expectations all the way through to using an awesome software app that specializes in processing excellent quality time lapse videos. This is Latitude Photography Podcast episode 143 for May 8, 2022.

Latitude Photography School is all about helping you connect the dots between your vision, purpose and achievement in your photography. It’s for travel/outdoor photographers who are comfortable with their gear and want to do more, explore more, and really hone in on their craft.

    The price is increasing on January 9, 2022. But if you sign up now you’ll be able to lock in the current rate. Please check out the website for more information https://brentbergherm.com
    Another thing about Latitude Photography School, I’m revamping my Globetrotter program. It is the ultimate experience to infuse energetic growth into your photography experience. This is accomplished through a focused 9-week experience that is starting in mid March, 2022. It includes lifetime access to the website, weekly sessions, both individual with just me AND group sessions with other globetrotters.
    If you want to get started with something right away, I say go ahead and sign up for the Adventurer program. And if you want to then upgrade to the Globetrotter experience you’ll be able to just pay the difference between the two programs once it’s released. 
    Please find the link in the show notes about the Globetrotter interest list and you’ll be the first to be notified when it’s open and available. It will open on March 1, 2022, and then enrollment will close on March 11, 2022. We’ll then start right after that with our sessions and lessons.
    You can also expect customized assignments and readings as this is a program designed to address your interests and needs to help you grow and transform into the photographer you want to become.

    Disclaimers
    Each photographer and their interests vary, not everything mentioned today will apply to all people, nor should it.
    There’s a lot more in the book than we’ll be able to talk about today, plus, I’ve added some of my own thoughts to take us off on a few tangents. These are generally thoughts I had while reading the book.
    Some of the questions and comments I have are unique to my situation, listeners are invited to chime in using the fb group with your own questions or points.
    Networking
    You’ve never met three of the book’s contributors

    LUMINOSITY MASKING for beginners
    My take on Luminosity Masking Started about three years ago, just dabbled Opinions on post-production work What happened this quarter Background knowledge needed before tackling Luminosity Masking PS layers PS selections PS masking PS save/load selection Anything else Understanding the idea of a Luminosity Mask and the logistics Simple to use, difficult to understand sometimes When to use a Luminosity Mask, what to look for in your scene Exposure Blending Dodging and Burning Techniques when shooting multiple frames Techniques when using one frame Starting the work in PS What to do in Lr or other raw editor Transitioning to PS Assessing the work. How to stack the layers, which order. Diving into the Lumenzia Panel D, M and L buttons (a) and so on buttons, 0-10 buttons, but as this is a starter type discussion, don’t plan to dive too deeply here.

Selecting different luminance values for adjusting different areas of the photo. Best to adjust on the same layer, or to make additional layers? Making a separate Dodge-Burn Layer (fill layer 50% with Overlay layer blend mode, apply adjustments to the layer using dodge/burn tools rather than regular brush (or can still use black or white brush too)

Photography and travel entertainment

Brent brings you to out to travel photography locations with lots of details and interesting interviews. The Forgotten Pieces of Georgia episode was so inspirational for Photogs. An accomplished photographer was looking for inspiration by driving around the state and found history in old structures and buildings and made it into a project. Fascinating story. Keep up the good informative podcasts to keep inspiring us Brent!

Educational, interesting, and easy to understand

This and Master Photography Podcast are my two favorite photography podcasts out there. They are very informative and cover a wide range of topics. They also have amazing Facebook groups that are well monitored, making them the perfect place to ask questions you can’t seem to find other places.

Alex Morley ,

Becoming my favorite

I just started listening to the Latitude Photography podcast. It’s rapidly becoming one of my favorite podcasts. Brent combines the technical and artistic sides of photography in a wonderful blend. Each episode has been really interesting so I’m working my way back through all of the older shows I’ve missed. It’s obvious that Brent is putting a lot of work and time into this. He’s very organized. Love it!
