Special Effects Software

Like many people I have been intrigued by special effects achieved with software editing applications that can enhance your photos. Will the effects make the photo better or worse? The only way to find out is to apply the effect. Be sure to work from a copy of your original photo in case the effect does not work or save under a different name from your original. I have tried combining photos, using painting special effects and using reversal color special effects. Reversal... continue reading

Beginner

Although I joined in 2015 my camera wasn't really up to the task of taking quality pictures. So I purchased a Sony ILCE 6000 and I'm pleased with the results despite not understanding every setting. I have an acceptance rate around 59% which I hope to improve on as I get used to the noise reduction software and photo editor.I am homing in on my first 100 online(6 to go) and have an array of subjects. It is still a learning curve for me but we all have to start somewhere. The main thing is I enjoy... continue reading

We need some interesting places for it. The problem is only, that Frankfurt is in the night a dangerous city (we hear often cries... continue reading

Digitization of photography: software

Since the advent of the digital camera the whole workflow has been digitized. Below a list of software tools, platforms, and services I use. The hardware I use consists of and 27" iMac, a Synology NAS, and a bunch of external harddisks.For backup I use Sync Pro to copy my NEFs, DNGs, and JPGs to my NAS. The NEFs of the current year are stored on Amazon Glacier. Once a month I take a full copy of everything to my office at the university. In practice I have three copies of every picture.For... continue reading

Noise Reduction Tools: A Review

As a photographer, you always get to encounter situations that are worth capturing but the light is extremely unfavorable. If you have a tripod, you are good to go. But that doesn't always help. Recently while trying to make an HDR of a church interior, I wasn't allowed to set up the tripod because it would obstruct flow of tourists. The church was beautiful and I wanted an HDR, whatever happens. So I had to step up ISO to 1600 (still got a shutter speed of around 1/13 only). Thanks to Canon's outstanding... continue reading

Photoshop Lightroom 4

First, let me explain my experience with post-processing to give you an idea of my skill level.I began with Photoshop 3 with a little instruction from a colleague and upgraded to Photoshop 4 when I had the opportunity a little later on.In time, I felt Photoshop was just too vast to learn fluently with the little time I could allocate to photography and especially post-processing.However, I found most of the changes I cared about were within the Camera RAW plugin found within all versions of... continue reading
