Canon Professional Network posted the second tutorial video of their series about Lightroom and Photoshop CC workflow. You can watch the video on CPN’s site. Part 1 (smart objects) is here.

In Part 2 of this series Richard Curtis focuses on the advanced use of Smart Objects for creating composite images within the Lightroom and Photoshop CC workflow and, in a special video, he explains how to create such composite images.

Stormscapes2 – An Astonishing Time Lapse Video

The amazing video above was made by Nicolaus Wegner, and it took him 5 months to put it together. He says:

High plains storms are some of the most beautiful and wild in the world. I spent May – September 2014 photographing all types of severe weather in Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado. This time lapse project is a result of that effort. From rainbows to tornadoes, there is a little bit of everything in here.

To realise the time lapse video he used an EOS 5D Mark II and EOS 6D, and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USMEF 70-200 f/4L IS and Rokinon 14mm lenses.
