In this video, I am going to show you an example how I edit an autumn photo from start to finish in Capture One and Photoshop. I am going to do all the basic adjustments in Capture One and add Orton Effect in Photoshop to make the photo appear dreamy. Hope you enjoy.
A good camera bag is important for landscape photography. It needs to be rugged enough to protect all your gear inside, and it should be comfortable to carry for hiking and trekking. My old camera bag is Lowepro Whistler BP 350 AW I. While it is a super rugged bag, I found it has a couple shortcomings for long distance hiking. So I bought Gregory Zulu 40 which is designed to be a hiking and trekking backpack, and I turned it into a camera bag by using camera insert unit from F-stop gear. This combination provides enough gear protection and is also more comfortable for long distance hiking.
In this video we will go through three common shutter types: mechanical shutter, electronic shutter and electronic front curtain shutter. I will use Fujifilm X-H1 as an example because it has all three shutters. We will be looking at the pros and cons of each shutter and when to use each shutter in a certain situation.
July is a great season in Colorado due to the blossoms of wildflowers. Here you can see the most fresh and vivid colors of the nature. Also it is a great time to see waterfalls in Colorado. As the snow slowly melts, the water flows strongly and rapidly. The trail I hiked in the video was called Fourth of July trail which leads to the Fourth of July Mine. And beyond that, you would see amazing sweeping views of the Rocky Mountains.
Despite of occasional storms and snows, May is a beautiful season here in Boulder, Colorado as the flowers start to bloom. I took my camera with me and did a morning hike in the famous local park Chautauqua Park to capture flowers and the iconic rock formations called Flatirons. In this video, you will see I talk through the techniques I used on location as well as post processing for this photo. Hope you enjoy.
We all want to have as many megapixels as possible, but the reality is, you don't have to spend thousands of dollars on a high megapixel camera. The alternative solution is that you can increase the resolution in software such as Adobe Photoshop and Topaz Labs Gigapixel AI. Today in this video, we will be looking at how to increase the resolution using the image resize tool in Photoshop and how it compares to the photo enlarge software Gigapixel AI.
I found this L bracket from SmallRig which is by far the best L bracket that I have ever used for Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujifilm X-T2. Check out the link below.
There is no better time to do landscape photography in Colorado than the sunrise just after heavy snow. The magical light hitting the mountains covered under snow is something that I would never be tired of. Recently I went out to photograph the mountains just after a snow storm and in this video I will share with you how I edited these photos from start to finish in Capture One 12.
In this video I will share three mistakes that I made when I started processing my own photos. Hopefully these mistakes can help you process your photos better. 1. The first mistake is not calibrating your monitor. I use Datacolor Spyder 4 to calibrate my monitor. Now their latest version is Spyder 5.
Recently I planned a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park but due to the U.S. government shutdown, I had to change my plan. I went to Chautauqua Park after a snowy day. It is my first time using the new Nikon Z6, which is a 24 MP full frame mirrorless camera. I captured a couple winter landscape photos with the Nikon Z 6. Also in this video, I am going to talk about why I picked up a Nikon Z 6 over Fujifilm X-H1 and Fujifilm X-T3
