Inverting photos in Lightroom

Inverting photos in Lightroom

I started to convert some of my old 35mm negatives into digital images. Just as a test I stuck a negative on the window and made a picture of it using my 5D. Then the trouble started, Lightroom does not have a “invert colours” option. Lucky for me I found a website with a handy preset which does the trick. Keep in mind that all your sliders invert as well. This means that if you want to make your picture brighter you should lower the aperture slider.

It might be the case that you are going to do some more professional photography. In this case it is useful to have a contract telling you and your model what you can and can’t with the photos. These contracts are so called “model release forms”. Yuri Arcurs was kind enough to share some example contracts which can be found on his website.

Tilt-shifting is a special photography technique, which requires special lenses. If used a “normal” picture looks like as if it has been taken in a miniature world. Now there is an online tool, called TiltShiftMaker which can create these images artificially. You simple upload your picture, adjust the parameters and download your own tilt shifted picture 🙂
