 I doubt many Amish have seen the movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off but I can't get this quote out of my head "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." On our last day in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania we were treated to a beautiful sunrise, an Amish dairy farm tour, a buggy ride and beautiful blue skies. I had a few Amish buggy photos and wanted to try a panning shot - I talk about how to capture shots like this in my popular Shutter Speed Explained video - Watch at http://photorec.tv/shutterspeed/ *  Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 70mm and 1/30 second
 #oink Farm life in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania ...That'll do, pig.
 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2

    I am a person that hates editing photo’s so I never really started to learn anything from lightroom. Jut go in and do what I have to do and get out of it. This video is so easy to follow and understand that I already learned things to help me. I am now interested in learning it thanks to Toby!

    I had installed Lightroom on my computer a few months ago but really didn’t do anything special with the program because I couldn’t find any proper instructions. Thanks to this video I started to learn how Lightroom works and I can finally get my photo’s organised and hopefully do more with them. Thumbs up for Toby, can’t wait for Vol. 2!

    I’ve had Lightroom for a while. I never really used it much other than applying batch changes to photographs. I learned quite a bit from this tutorial about how much more Lightroom could be doing for me. Being a Patreon supporter definitely is going to pay for itself with regular content like this!

    Very good start to lightroom if you have never used it before. If you do use it the tips in this lesson will still help you keep your photo library organized. Most other lightroom videos are much more expensive. For the price of this complete series many other places would charge 10 tines as much.

    I purchased another lightroom tutorial series just a few weeks prior to this coming out. I was disappointing when searching that Toby and Christina did not have a series themselves when I made my purchase. After owning another course and then purchasing this first three part series I say this is heads and tails above the other. You will not be disappointing when buying this instructional series.

    Are you the same as me. You buy a program install. Choose to have a go before reading the manual. By the time you look for the manual it’s gone. Maybe you just don’t want to go through the book, to much to read. This is how to do it these video’s are well put together. They are explained in a way that any one could understand. These videos are done by people who use the program day in day out, and at an amazing price !!! Try them out what have you got to lose !!!

    Excellent episode once again.
    There’s not much to say, the price is so low it’s a robbery.
    Buy. Learn. And remember to thank Toby and Christina for putting up awesomeness on the web.
