Yesterday a new update to Capture One 21 was released. Incremental improvements and one significant new feature moving the software further towards being a complete solution for photo processing. Style Brushes.
Like many people who have been using Capture One software in the studio, I'm used to using it for one set of capabilities and that has definitely been the case with the new release. I've also noticed in the course of a few shoots now, that there are things happening that might enable me to keep more of my workflow in Capture One. So here's a summary of what's new in Capture One 21. Read more
Two shoots this month equals two chances to use Capture One 21 in the studio. I am impressed. Like Apple Computers it just works!
First the shoots. I've been working with Shropshire Artist Grace Currie for around six months now. I photographed her work for her graduating exhibition (She got a first class degree in Fine Art) and subsequently for her web site and social media. Her pictures are often hyper alive, vibrant with great texture and colour. I shoot these differently to the way I shoot products. Read more
Capture One 21 is released today! We're very happy to be affiliated with Capture One for the very good reason that we've been using their software for five years now, for all our studio work and some location work too. Basically for anything that requires tethered shooting we use Capture One. We think it's the best software for our studio requirements bar none. Read more
2020 - the year of living dangerously. What a year! It's been our best year ever but there have been times when it's looked bleak. I was hospitalised with Covid 19 between Xmas and New Year and nearly died. Not an experience I'll easily forget. But I recovered and now even our accountant is happy! Read more
Photography and Covid-19 don't mix! This post shows how we survived the lockdown period and continue to build our business.
Some of you may know that I was hospitalised last Christmas with a condition that in hindsight was almost certainly Covid-19. It was possibly the scariest thing that's ever happened to me. Read more
The WebXR Device API replaces WebVR in products such as Oculus Quest, Google Chrome and Firefox browsers.
What does it do? It brings Augmented Reality under the same overarching API as Virtual Reality, opening the door to special effects like the one here (Chrome or Firefox) What does the X stand for? Nothing, it's a wildcard that stands for anything you like- its your reality after all! Maybe this will stop the tiresome debate around whether 360° Photography is counted as VR! Read more
We've been advising a client on the equipment they need to deliver training in a socially distant way. Along the way it occurred to us that you might want to build your own Zoom Room too. This will also be relevant to Facebook Live, YouTube, Vloggers and anyone inviting family and friends onto a video call. There is no better way to see your friends in Lockdown! Read more
We are members of Skylum's affiliate program, so please don't expect this Luminar 4 review to be bad. I will say only that we never endorse products that we do not use ourselves.
Luminar 4 is an AI powered processing tool from Skylum that challenges Adobe's Lightroom and Photoshop combination. I have used it professionally for real estate work for a year now and have been impressed with what I've been able to achieve, particularly in the extreme light conditions of Spain. Skylum also make the excellent Aurora HDR software. This review is of Luminar 4. Read more
