Three reasons to shoot jpeg + raw with Fuji | Steve Dimitriadis

Most digital cameras have the option of allowing you to record your images in the camera in both the RAW and JPEG file formats. That is to say, when you press the shutter you are simultaneously creating each of these files on your card. The main reason that this feature has been used for by me prior to coming to the Fuji system is when I wanted to give the images I was making to someone who wanted them there and then, and of course that meant that I needed a processed file that could allow me to do this. The raw file would still give me the insurance that I wanted (as raw files do). Since the move to Fujifilm cameras (my own journey has been the x100 to the X-T1 and now the x100t and X-T1 as a killer combo for me) some of the limitations and strengths of these cameras have encouraged me to use the practice of shooting raw and jpeg full time. Memory cards are plenty big enough these days so there should be no obstacle to get the benefits below…….

How to use the Interval Timer function | Dale Young

The Interval Timer feature built into some of our X series* cameras can be an excellent tool to express your creativity. It can be used to capture multiple images one after the other with the knowledge that you will simply pick your favourite image later on. Or the most likely the reason you would use this feature is to create a time-lapse movie like this little Lego guy doing a dance (rather badly I might add!), or perhaps a flower bud opening up, or even the sun setting behind the horizon – the possibilities are truly endless. In this tutorial I want to give you a basic idea of how to use the Interval Timer function to create timelapse movies. For in-depth advice on timelapse movie creation and some of the more detailed do’s and don’t’s I would strongly recommend searching ‘How do I get great timelapse results from my camera?‘ as there are so many good tutorials already out there…….

Long Exposure Tutorial | SebImagery

First and foremost, let me apologize for completely falling off of the map.  As some of you know last March I moved from Dubai to South Korea.  Since then I’ve fallen behind on my website…a lot.  Lets not even start talking about emails.  So here’s my first picture taken out in Seoul last week. In the past I’ve gotten quite a few emails regarding my processing and process in general.  Recently I had a discussion on Facebook with a photographer in Seoul and she was asking about long exposure photography.  I figured why the hell not just make a blog post about it.  Maybe this will put me back on track from being the slacker ass I’ve been.  (I also have a loaner Sony A7Rii I’m going to be doing a review of). What exactly is Long Exposure photography? …….

Step by step guide for Composite Product Photography | DIY Photography

Usually, I prefer to get stuff in camera (even if it means light painting my subject). But sometimes Lighting or space limitations will make getting the picture in-camera hard or simply not worth the effort. When such situation strikes go for a composite. If you only have little gear, this technique will also help you get a more professional look in your images. To demonstrate this point, I used my girlfriends Macbook air and my Fuji Xe-2. Shooting. The actual shooting depends on how many lights you got and how many layers in Photoshop you are willing to use for the final image; it can take a minimum of 3 images up to 20 or more depending on how you light the product. I prefer moving my lights in different angles just to see the outcome and choose the best option after. The general idea is to place the camera on a tripod and make sure your product is in a static position – if either the camera of the subject move, this will not work. You can use different techniques for lighting your product but for this shoot, I just used one speedlight with a small softbox combined with an acrylic sheet for the gradient reflections………..

The 10 commandments of Lightroom black and white conversions |
Digital Camera World

Lightroom makes the process of converting a colour image to black and white a two-second job, but it’s deceptively easy. Good black and white conversion is not just about losing the colour; not all images work so well in black and white, and a cack-handed conversion sticks out like a sore thumb. Here’s a quick rundown of 10 essential considerations when you are mulling monochrome…

All About Curves | Robin Chavez

Curves may seem intimidating at first and you may wonder, “How can that one little line alter the look of my images? Is it even worth learning?” YES! In fact, there are are so many options using Curves that one could edit an entire image using nothing BUT Curves in many cases. Before we get too ahead of ourselves though, let’s start with the basics. Below, we’ll start with an image of my middle son and open up Curves……

Adobe Camera Raw: how to remove lens distortions from interior shots |
Digital Camera World

aking photos of the interiors of buildings usually means reaching for a wide-angle lens. However you may find that the lens introduces some distortion. The vertical lines in your interior may curve slightly at the edge of the frame, due to the way the light is warped as it travels through the lens. This pincushion (curving inwards) or barrel (curving outwards) distortion can be distracting, as our eyes see walls as being perfectly straight. In a photograph the interior’s walls may also converge slightly towards the top of the frame, instead of running parallel with the edges. Fortunately, Photoshop CC’s Camera Raw workspace has all the tools you need to quickly and easily counteract geometric distortions such as curved lines……..

Lightroom CC & the Ghosts of Aperture | Patrick La Roque

So Lightroom CC is out. Yes, CC not 6; although there is or will be a 6. Which will be the same… I think. Frankly, it’s confusing as hell and I’m pretty sure it’s Adobe’s way of slowly getting folks psychologically ready for the inevitable total cloud switch. But, having hopped on board the Photography Plan last year I guess I can’t really bitch about it anymore. And unless the prices change, I still believe the arguments that made me decide to subscribe still hold true. I’ll be honest with you, I’m ambivalent about this release. Not because there aren’t nice additions and fixes but because I can’t help but find it lacking in imagination, given Adobe’s immense ressources. And because even at version 6, the reality is that it still trails behind the now defunct Aperture in way too many departments, even as it adds “new” Aperture inspired features. So while I started writing this post as a short overview of what was new in CC, it devolved into a re-examination of the application as a whole—something I haven’t done publicly in a long time……
