Mobile Photography and Editing of Downtown Cincinnati

Last month I spent a couple of days teaching at a conference in Cincinnati. I ventured outside the hotel for a quick walk, really having no thought of taking photos or doing a video. But as I got near the water and looked at the city skyline, I started wishing I had my camera there to grab some photos. Then I realized, I did have my camera – my phone! And I had a video camera too – my phone!

A Modest Camera Photo Challenge

Hi everyone! It’s your ON1 Plus Guest Coach, Brian Matiash. During last week’s Live Q&A session, I fielded a question asked by ON1 Plus member, Anastasios and it really stuck a chord with me. His question focused on feeling like a lesser photographer because of the size of his camera compared to another photographer who was shooting next to him. Despite answering the question during the Q&A session, I just couldn’t shake it.

Hi all. Last week our guest coach, Brian Matiash, did a live Q&A called “Telling Your Visual Story”, and we got a great response.

What Photo Inspires You?

Pretty open ended question huh? I have an idea for an exercise, and I’d love to see a photo (yes, One photo – not a photographer) that inspires you. A photo that you wish you’d taken. If you don’t immediately know where to go to find a photo, try searching/browsing through 500px.com or Flickr.com, or just do a google search. Just one photo though. Easy enough right?

March Photo Critique Recap

Hudson and I recorded a recap video to go through some good learning moments from the last round of photo critiques in ON1 Plus. The ON1 Plus Community continues to submit a ton of great photos. It was a blast for us to get together and see the photos that the other person had to review.
Anyway, here’s the video. It’s just about 30 minutes and they went over 20 photos so just over 90 seconds for each photo. Enjoy!

Focus Blending for Sharp Landscapes

Keep your landscapes razor sharp in lower light with wider apertures. Watch this new tutorial to see how I capture this low-light Patagonian landscape image in multiple frames at varying focus settings and then RAW process, composite blend, and finish edit the scene into a single, tack-sharp image. Software covered includes ON1 Layers, ON1 Effects and the Lightroom Develop module’s basic, noise reduction and sharpening panels.
