Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- If your lynda.com membership includes it, I've put together a collection of exercise files. This is some of my personal footage and stills as well as some footage that's been loaned to me by my good friend Carl Sue-lay form Adobe. What I'd like to do is show you what can be done with these cameras and to do that, I've gathered footage and stills from a wide range of shooting situations. We've gone out with action athletes, both skateboarders and motorcycle riders. we've also taken the camera under water doing things like scuba diving. And of course family vacations and all sorts of situations where a GoPro or a Quadcopter would be pretty normal.
Now if you have your own footage, feel free to pull that out and that's good to practice with as well. But I hope that these hands-on exercise files will really bring the material to life. There's also a couple of really advanced things that we're going to do with stacking modes using Smart Objects and taking a look at panorama images that may really give you some new ideas of what you can do with a GoPro Camera. When you're all done with this course, please don't post or use any of this footage for any of your projects or put it online. But I hope that these exercise files come in handy so you really can understand what's exactly possible when using cameras and software together.
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
