Science World Vancouver – Lightroom and Photoshop Edits

Science World Vancouver – Lightroom and Photoshop Edits

Today I made a video of myself editing a photo. I decided to upload it to Youtube and make a blog post about it. It was super easy to create this video so I think i’m going to keep doing more of these.

If you have any suggestions on things I can do better in the video, or any techniques you would like me to cover then please leave a comment below. My goal is to continue to get better with both making photographs and editing them.

This image was taken a couple days ago down by False Creek. Science World was originally built for Expo ’86. I remember visiting this building back during the expo and I thought it was super cool at the time.

The camera is held steady in my 3 Legged Thing tripod and the exposure is 3.8 seconds at f/8.0. My original intent was to make this image by combining a bracket of 5 images taken one stop apart, but I found the middle image had all the tonal range I needed to get the final image to look the way I wanted.

The edits are done only in Lightroom and Photoshop. I should have put the image through some noise reduction white still making the video, but at the moment I shot the video I forgot. Next video I will be more thorough.

Any suggestions on where I should shoot next? Leave a comment below!


Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
