Tech Talk – Fujifilm X-Trans

Some of you out there shoot with Fujifilm® X series cameras that use the X-Trans® CMOS sensor. These sensors use a unique color filter pattern compared the the traditional Bayer pattern that most cameras use. Fujifilm claims this filter layout reduces moire patterns naturally so you don’t need an anti-aliasing filter which can soften details in your photos. They also claim  this layout provides for better color reproduction with less color noise. Here is what that looks like.

Continuing on with the Layers theme this month, we’re going to dive in to some workflows for using multiple layers. The main questions that come up are what order do we do things. We have Develop changes, layered changes and even effects. So what’s the right order to work in, and how to we jump across the various modules if we have multiple layers. As always, if you have any questions feel free to ask ‘em below. Enjoy!

To Layer Or Not To Layer?

Hey there! In this first video of mine for my February guest-coaching month, I wanted to talk a little about some of the general concepts behind when we choose to use Layers in our editing. There’s certain things I think should be done at the Raw level, and there’s certain things that we need layers to do – and then (of course to complicate things) there’s tasks that could be done with layers or without—and it’s up to you.

So I created this first video to run through what I think are edits that are best done in the raw editor portion of our workflow, and then some examples of things that we’d need layers for. Enjoy!

Approaching the Scene: Introduction & Exposure Triangle

I’m so excited to launch this new course for the Plus community. Each lesson of Approaching the Scene is devoted to the full creative process of photography from conceptualizing a shoot through creating a RAW capture in the field and finish editing the results in ON1 Photo RAW. These lessons are detailed, involved, and longer than course lessons you might be used to. Friday, Feb 10th we will release one lesson per week, starting with Sports Action which has nearly an hour of content based around a kiteboarding photo shoot.
