How much is Lightroom?

Here are some examples of different Lightroom settings… I don’t suggest you set these to the maximum setting as we’ll soon see the limitations of the preset presets, but you might want to consider the settings you use more often and just save off the maximum. For example, you might set the camera default to the highest aperture when shooting portraits: it will help to get portraits that show just a bit of detail.

Let’s take a second and look at a few different lighting conditions and see what that changes.

The first shot is still-life shot with a portrait of a young women – this is a good example of using the low shutter speed and a wider aperture to get detail in the portraits without overexposing the subjects. However, the background appears to be brighter than the subjects because the low shutter speed and wider aperture result in less detail to be shown. The second shot is just a quick example of light with no details in the photos. Again the light is too bright – something you’ll probably find with most portrait shots anyway. And finally the last photo is just the usual light!

Some of the images have been saved at 400 dpi resolution as I didn’t want to lose any detail. But these are examples of what I usually shoot at with my DSLR – low shutter speeds, wide aperture and a slow shutter speed can all produce results for the subjects you want to show off…

One of the most obvious results of going to that low of a ISO setting is that everything gets a bit grainier. I can easily see this in a photo like this, with the high speed shutter setting:

And that’s it!

The federal government in New Brunswick has spent more than $150,000 since 2011 providing financial assistance to a company owned by an outspoken federal election candidate.

The province has received at least $142,000 in federal financial and administrative assistance through the Election Fraud Action Partnership. There are no firm deadlines for requesting grants, but it is hoped the partnership will work with the government to identify funds that need to be redirected.

The group was founded by David Berton, the minister responsible for the Electoral Act, to improve reporting and accountability in elections, which is why it operates through partner organizations in other provinces.

Berton has been a divisive figure in New Brunswick politics. His involvement in a controversial 2011 decision to award the province an Olympic gold medal to Canada’s bobsleigh team had to do with Berton himself.
