How To JOIN Clips in Davinci Resolve

Learn how to quickly edit video and join clips in Davinci Resolve.  Why might you want to join clips?  If you are recording your video with a DSLR, your camera may split a single video recording session into multiple files.  There are several reasons for this, but rejoining the clips in Davinci Resolve to make one video file can be a big help when editing your video.  

If you are working with multiple cameras that gave you multiple files for each recording session, I’d recommend joining each cameras clips together to give Davinci Resolve a better chance to automatically align the footage using the multicam feature.  

It’s super easy - check out the video!

How to Install Lightroom Presets PLUS Review of Fix The Photo Presets

Lightroom Presets.  There’s no doubt that you’ve heard of them, maybe tried some of them, and possibly even created your own.  Presets can help speed up your workflow as well as help you create a consistent look among your photos.  They are relatively easy to use and in this post, I’m going how you how to install new presets into Adobe Lightroom and share my experience using a set of Landscape Lightroom Presets provided by a company called Fix the Photo. 

Recently I had a representative from Fix the photo (www.fixthephoto.com) reach out to me and ask me if I would give some of their presets a try and share my experience using them.  In the spirit of transparency, Fix The Photo did provide me with a free set of their Landscape Presets that cost $29 on their website and can be found here:  Landscape Presets  There are also some FREE presets that you can try out here:  Fix The Photo FREE Presets

Who Is Fix the Photo?

Fix the Photo (www.fixthephoto.com) is a company that has been providing photo retouching services and professional photo editing since 2003.  They have a wide variety of services to offer that include things such as portrait retouching, wedding photo editing, photo restoration, product retouching to name a few.  Check out their website to see all of the services they offer.

Lets Get to the Presets!

Presets are a great way to get started editing your image.  They speed up the editing process by applying specific settings to your image.  Many times when editing a set of photos there are some basic settings that we use as part of our image style.  Instead of having to select all of these develop settings manually, the preset can apply these settings in one click.  From there, I’ll usually make some additional tweaks to an image before I’m finished.

If you’re new to presets, the first thing you need to do is download the new presets.  Once you’ve downloaded them, the next step is to get them into Lightroom.  I’ll be using Lightroom CC  on a MacBook Pro and there are several different ways to import them.  Adobe Lightroom has now switched preset files from .lrtemplate file types to .XMP file types for presets and I’m going to show you how to import the .lrtemplate files.


02_Preferences Menu.png

Step 1:

Open Lightroom!  Once in Lightroom, select ‘Lightroom’ from the top left of the menu bar.  Then select ‘Preferences’.

Step 2:

Next, select the tab that says ‘Presets’.  About half way down the window under ‘Location’ select ‘Show All Other Lightroom Presets’.  We need to use this option since the preset files we have are in the .lrtemplate format.  Finder will now open with the location you need to place the presets.   

File Location.png

Step 3:

You should now be in the ‘Lightroom’ folder in Finder.  Within that folder, select ‘Develop Presets’.   Simply Copy (Cmd + C) and Paste (Cmd + V) the entire folder of presets you want to add into this location.  Close Finder after you paste in the presets.

Step 4:

Converted to XMP Message.png

Jumping back into Lightroom, close the program and reopen it.  Go back into the Develop module and to the ‘Presets’ tab.  Lightroom will likely give you a quick message that it is converting the new preset files from .lrtemplate to .xmp files.  It will also copy the new preset file types into the new preset directory for Lightroom CC.  When Lightroom is finished, you will see the message that all presets were converted to XMP.

Step 5:

Give the new presets a try!  You should now see the folder of presets you added under the ‘Presets’ tab.  For me the folder is called  Landscape Presets_Fix the Photo_Paid


Using Fix The Photo Presets

My first impression of the Fix The Photos Presets is that they are pretty well organized.  They are numbered from 1-30, titled as ‘Landscape’ presets and have a brief description of what the preset does.  The descriptions are clear and pretty straight forward. 

Screen Shot 2018-10-03 at 10.40.12 AM.png

The best way to try the a preset is select a photo, apply each preset to the photo, then see how it looks.  One great feature in Lightroom is the ability to hover overtop of a preset name and then Lightroom will show a preview of that preset without having to apply the preset to the image.  This allows you to quickly move through a variety of presets to determine which you like best.  

Generally you will find certain presets you like and certain presets you don’t like so much.  Maybe you like the faded desaturated look.  Or maybe you like the bright airy look.  I always look at presets as a good starting point for your images.  It helps the image go from flat and boring to having some style to it super quick.  Then to make it your own, further tweak the image based on how you want the image to feel.

I tried the presets on a bunch of different photos and I chose several photos to show you here.  I kept coming back to the ‘Film’, ‘Cinematic’ and ‘Drama’ presets.  Once I selected these presets, I’d go ahead and apply a few more corrections to get the image just where I wanted it.

When using presets, you will find that not all presets will work on all images.  Some presets work better on bright sunny photos while other work better on dark moody photos.  Trial and error is the only what to see what will work on a particular photos type.  

If you are looking to give some presets a try, I’d recommend stopping by www.fixthephoto.com and downloading some of their free presets to try.  If you like the free ones, trying picking up one of their paid sets of presets.  Here are links to both the free landscape presets and the paid landscape preset package that was provided to me.

I’d like to thank Fix The Photo for reaching out to me and sending me some of their landscape presets to try.  I enjoyed trying the different looks on my images.  I think they are quality presets that deliver value to any photographer and help speed up your editing workflow.

Hoya Variable ND Filter Unbox & Review

In this video, I unbox and give my thoughts on the Hoya Variable ND Filter. It’s a great tool to help you get the proper exposure for your videos.

Hoya Variable ND Filter: https://amzn.to/2MYc957

When I got started making videos with a Canon DSLR, I always tried to get the proper exposure using the correct settings. Sometimes when it’s really bright outside, your video just comes out too bright. That’s where a Variable ND Filter comes in!

How To Fix MULTICAM Clips that Don’t line up - Moving Footage within A Multicam Clip

The Multicam feature in Davinci Resolve makes it easy to quickly edit a mult-angle video, but what do you do when Resolve can’t line up the camera angles automatically?  In this video, I’ll show you how a MULTICAM Clip can be edited and the footage within the multicam clip can be moved around so that all of the videos and audio are in sync. 

When I first started working with Multicam clips, I had the problem of the video files not automatically syncing up when Resolve lined up the clips automatically.  I searched around YouTube quite a bit and could not find an answer on how to fix the videos being out of sync.  As a new Davinci Resolve user, I didn’t know that you can just open the Multicam clip in the timeline and move the footage around to manually sync it.  I hope this video is able to help others see how easy it is to make adjustments to Multicam clips.

MULTICAM Edits In DaVinci Resolve - How to Make Quick and Easy Multi Angle Videos

I had no idea how easy it could be to edit together multiple video angles using Davinci Resolve!  If you are looking to speed up your multi-angle video editing, then check out the MULTICAM features in Davinci Resolve.  Multicam clips make it quick and easy to simply watch your video then click on the angle you want to see while the video is playing.  Davinci Resolve then automatically adds the correct clip to your timeline.  

In this video, I’ll show you how I create a MULTICAM clip, then how to select the angle you want to see in your final video.  I’ll also show you how to get consistent AUDIO throughout your video while changing angles.  

Working with MULTICAM clips isn’t has hard as it sounds.  If you have any questions, leave a comment below.

DIY Video Studio Setup for Cheap

Setting up a simple video or photography studio can be easy and you can use things you already have laying around.  In this video, I’ll show you a small studio I set up at my church to record video.  Here are some of the items I used to create the studio space:

  • White Backdrop (could be a sheet, table cloth or anything big enough to cover the background)
  • Black Backdrop (could be a sheet, blanket, etc.  Used to block light and stop lights from bouncing.)
  • Cardboard boxes to block out windows
  • Moving blankets hung on the wall to prevent echo and deaden sound.
  • Lights

With a little creativity and using things you already have laying around, its easy to create a simple studio setup.

Real Estate Photography - Blending Flash and Ambient Images in Photoshop

Are you looking to take better real estate photos?  Good real estate photos are essential when trying to sell a home.  In this video, I’ll show you a technique I’ve been using to blend a Flash image with an Ambient image in Photoshop to create a great looking final image.  

Its no secret that almost all home buyers begin their search online.  If images of a home are not appealing to the buyers, they quickly move on to the next home.  However, with good real estate photography, there is a better chance that a potential buyer will look at the home online and move to the next step in the process - actually reaching out to a Realtor to see the home.  

For this technique, you will need a well exposed image of the room or space using only ambient light.  You will then take the same image using the flash, on camera or off camera, to expose the room.  These two images will then be brought into Photoshop and blended together to create an evenly exposed image that will only require a few minor tweaks to reach the final image.  

Of course there is no ‘right way’ to do real estate photography, this is just what has been working for me and I’ve had good results.

Davinci Resolve Is Awesome for Video Editing and FREE!

If you are looking to up your video editing game for FREE, look no further.  Blackmagic’s Davinci Resolve 15 is a free video editing software that will give you the tools you need to boost the quality of your video editing.  

Over the last few months, I’ve been thinking about what video editor I can use to replace iMovie and Screenflow.  Those programs are great (and I still use Screenflow a lot), but I was looking for more tools to use while creating videos than those programs were able to provide.  

I wanted to use Adobe’s Premiere Pro, but I wasn’t ready to pay for the full creative suite subscription price just yet.  I only learned about Davinci Resolve recently and I never knew it existed!  This program is on par with Adobe Premier.  

There is a bit a of learning curve when moving to advanced editing software such as Resolve,   but there are lots of great tutorials out there on how to use the program.  As a photographer who also works with video, I wanted to share my experience finding and using Davnici Resolve.  

To download Davinci Resolve for FREE, check out their website:

When to UPGRADE your Camera, Lens Gear

When is it time to upgrade your camera, lenses and other photography gear?  In this video, I talk about when I think it’s time to upgrade your camera, lenses and gear.  I also share my journey upgrading my gear and my thoughts and reasons behind why I upgraded when I did.    

With the price of photography gear today, I think you need to determine your needs and see what will meet your needs.  Not everyone needs the best gear out there.  But we would like to have it for sure!

How to SWAP heads in PHOTOSHOP

Sometimes not everyone is looking when you take a group photo.  In this video, I’ll show you how easy it is to swap heads on people in a group photo using Adobe Photoshop.  When you are photographing the group, make sure you take several images of the group so that you can capture each person looking at the camera in at least one photo.  

Next you will bring all of the photos into Photoshop and use layer masks to replace the heads, face, or entire people in your image.  This is an easy way to make sure that everyone is looking at the camera in your group photos.
