Ther are so many opportunities for making sports portraits, today, from little league teams to school sports, from semi-pros to your brother who loves to ride bikes. Making pictures that stand out is both fun and profitable, and this hangout will give you an edge at making more impact with your portraits.

+Robert Vanelli is one of the most affable educators, and his techniques have made his work standout and made him a leading Lacrosse photographer. You're going to love learning his style and integrating his techniques into your own to make portraits that get noticed and get you hired.

This event is brought to you by Photofocus and Perfectly Clear, one of the best tools for making portraits look great.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Photofocus®. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Did you know that your camera inherently fouls up your pictures? You know about a few obvious things like lens distortion, but did you know about infrared and the terrible things it does to colors? Yeah, me neither. That's why I'm glad Jeff Stephens from Athentech Imaging is joining us this month. He's going to help us understand how our cameras make problems for us, and how we can conquer them both while shooting and with software tools like Lightroom and Perfectly Clear. Jeff is a software engineer for Perfectly Clear, which is a tool I use daily to make my pictures look more lifelike. We can't wait to have you join us to learn these skills.

Join regular hosts +Rob Sylvan and +Levi Sim live to ask questions and be entered to win some terrific prizes, too.
This episode will be useful for all levels of Lightroom users from beginner to advanced.

Tune in Live to enter the drawing for some terrific prizes from our sponsors.

We'll see you here on Monday the 1st.

Hosts Rob Sylvan and Levi Sim hangout every month exploring Lightroom to help you smooth your workflow and finish your photographs with the vision in your mind's eye.

Brought to you by Athentech, makers of Perfectly Clear, and Drobo, which provides the simplest tools for backing up your photos.

Making pictures underwater is like photographing on an alien planet. The very laws of physics controlling light, color, and movement are different and they're stacked against you when you're trying to make pictures.

Fortunately, we've got +Erika Thornes on the show and she's like an astronaut who will show us how to work underwater with tips for shooting and finishing. Her underwater portraits are engaging and inspiring. You won't want to miss this show. (No, we won't be live underwater. Erika will show us tips via the interwebs using her computer.)

This event is brought to you by Photofocus and Perfectly Clear, one of the best tools for making portraits look great.

The hangout will be viewable anytime on this page so you can come back for a review, but you’ll have to tune in Live to be eligible for the prizes from our partners.

We'll see you here on Tuesday the 26th! 1pm Eastern, 12pm Central, 11am Mountain, 10am Pacific, and 2:30pm in Newfoundland.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Photofocus®. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
