Communicating our experiences requires the use of time/shutter speed to portray stop action or slow motion. But, sometimes, that one click just doesn’t re-create the feeling we experience. How can we communicate the passing of time without taking forever? Enter time-lapse photography. This week we begin our series by discussing what exactly time-lapse is, various capture devices for making time-lapse, essential and optional accessories to get started and what makes a good time-lapse subject.
The ON1 Photo RAW Project was launched just over a year ago and has been a huge success. It has changed the way we design and build software today. Now it’s time to pull back the curtain a bit and show you how invaluable your input has been.
That was amazing! The eclipse has come and gone and I’m still buzzed just remembering how cool totality was. The predawn rush to beat traffic and the 6-hour, 40-mile drive home were worth it. Now I understand how eclipse chasers catch the bug.
My goal from the beginning was to enjoy the eclipse with family, friends and my workshop students while capturing a composite landscape image of it moving through its phases over an oak tree. In the video above I explain how I photographed this and showcase the simple compositing technique I used in both Photo Raw 2017.6 and Lightroom/Photoshop. It’s really easy and it will also work for blending multiple night images into star trails.
Time is an important aspect of every photographer’s life. First off, it seems like we never have enough time in our busy lives to enjoy our passion for photography. Then there’s the time of day, which plays a crucial role in the appearance of our imagery. We drag ourselves out of bed at o’dark thirty to be on location at just the moment when the sun crests the horizon, bathing the world in a warm glow and we count down time as the sun descends lower and lower to disappear for the day. For some of us, it doesn’t end there, and we wait for the darkest time of night to photograph the sky, our cameras clicking away at distant galaxies.
How many times have you taken a photo far into the creative editing process only to find out that you can’t get the tones where you want them?
It is always a pleasure guest coaching here at ON1 Plus. There is such a high-caliber of photographers here in this community, and I am always ecstatic when I can teach you new tricks! Hopefully, after this month I have shown you a few more things about Artistry. It is not the easiest thing to comprehend nor teach.
Today is the final day to purchase the ON1 Photo Kit: Sunsets and Night Skies by James Brandon. Watch the trailer to see what’s inside this amazing bundle!
In the final lesson of the Artistry in ON1 Photo RAW, we will take a top down look at all the aspects of finishing touches that we covered in this course. Beyond the overview, we will discuss the many presets I have provided for you and how you can use them as an “a la carte” menu for creating an artistic style!
It is great to be back for another dose of ON1 Inspiration. The photo I’m sharing with you today comes from a situation I think most landscape photographers are familiar with. I was traveling, and had just a few days to spend in each location I visited. One of my stops was Kushimoto, Japan. I wanted to capture a glorious sunrise over the Hashigui rocks.
This month might have been the best set of photos ever submitted! Thank you everyone that uploaded a photo to be critiqued. The individual photo critique videos are posted below. Blake & Hudson got together and highlighted the best of the best in this recap video.
