  1. Nope you need lightroom 5.2 to do it.

  2. Very good!

  3. Can the Nikon D7100 be tethered to Lightroom 4.0? I’m having a hard time trying to figure this out! help ! Please… Thanks

  4. Sorry Brian, but the Canon 60D (mentioned) only has one ‘C’ (custom) setting.

  5. Great Tutorial. I really enjoy the show on Bracketing on Canon. I am glad that Scott Kelby have his own Photography Tips and Tricks. I have learn a lot from Scott Kelby and his team so far. Thank You everyone at KelbyMediaGroup for sharing your knowledge with the world. Hope more great videos in 2013.

  6. Guys can you do a video about Bracketing on Sony DSLR too

  7. yeah, i knew that already, the point was the way the guy did it, which isn’t a very good way because he ended up with 3x 0 stop images
    If you wanna shoot more then 3 frame bracketing just get Magic Lantern, you also get a whole lot more, that’s what they should do a video on

  8. Sorry, but not the most effective, nor efficient way of bracketing using exposure compensation.
    Set backeting to 3 exposures (-1,0,+1). Fire the first set of 3 exposures starting with the “correct” exposure meter reading. Then set exposure compensation to -3, shoot the second set of 3 exposures. Then set the exposure compensation to +3 and fire. You still end up with 9 exposures, but now u have -3 and +3 instead of the repeating zeros, AND you dont have to change the bracketing settings!

  9. EXTRA TIP: Im a nikon shooter, i hope it works on canon. If you dont have a cable release, before executing the process i mentioned before, set the camera to “timer” mode, press the shutter once, and the camera will fire the 3 bracketing burst automatically!
    If you have a cable release, configure continuous shooting mode to shoot 3 frames/sec. Set your camera to continuous low, press and hold the shutter, an it will fire 3 shots an stop automatically.

  10. I said the sam thing to myself lol. If you dont have custom settings, try this: Set backeting to 3 exposures (-1,0,+1). Fire the first set of 3 exposures starting with the “correct” exposure meter reading. Then, without changing the bracketing setting, set exposure compensation to -3, shoot the second set of 3 exposures, and u get -4,-3,-2. Then set the exposure compensation to +3, fire, and you get +2,+3,+4. You still end up with 9 exposures, but now u have -3 and +3 instead of the repeating 0.

  11. Hello, are you familiar with “photo SFX art” (just do a Google search for it…)? On their website you can watch a nice free video demonstrating the right way to take better photos. It made it possible for Matt to shoot pictures that leave you with that jaw-dropping-effect when you look at them. Hopefully it helps you too…

  12. Hey there! Have you tested photo sfxart tricks (just google it)? My work buddy Ellen made some unbelivable pics with their video lessons.

  13. Live view tip on focussing had you use the lens to zoom which I don’t see how that helps you focus better. Instead use the plus button to zoom without changing the image and perspective you want just to see where is sharp and then focus on the exact point and zoom back out again. This is really good for something like a ring at shallow DOF.

  14. Does this work on the G1X it got a custom dial.

  15. I have a Canon 550D (T2i) and i have no custom settings on my mode dial, so the only cameras that this works on would be the 60D and 7D ? not really a general tip, also you end up with 3x 0 stop images.

    The only people that don’t already know the advantages of Live View are those who never had it, like SLR and non live view enabled DSLR users, again not a general tip

    I’m not saying it’s a bad video but the tips need to be more general, not just for ppl upgrading to a 60D & 7D

  16. name of song ?

  17. Digging the new eps guys!
    Keep rocking!!!!
