This week featured huge announcements for Adobe Creative Cloud applications, including Lightroom and Photoshop. Bryan Esler talked to members of the Lightroom and Photoshop teams to give you an idea of what you can expect, and what might be on the horizon! Levi Sim taught us how to up our selfie game with a Platypod, Bob Coates walked us through processing a black and white portrait and Julie Powell taught us how to create still life images with indirect natural light.

It was a great, busy week at Photofocus! We hope you had a great week making pictures.
