A Post By: Simon Ringsmuth Have you ever returned to your computer with a memory card full of photos and become overwhelmed at the idea of going through all of them? The thought of sorting and analyzing so many pictures can seem so daunting it’s sometimes hard to even know where to start!

Often we find ourselves copying the contents of our cameras to our computers and letting our precious memories collect digital dust, though we promise ourselves we will get around to organizing them – someday. Modern technology has made this task easier, with various software and cloud-based services even promising to find your best photos for you. And while these digital assistants certainly have merit, I like to take a different approach to dealing with all the images I capture.

The following tips will help you streamline your photography workflow and make the task of sifting through your images not only easier, but a lot more enjoyable too.

Mitchell II, Ph.D. The Light’s Right Studio Have you ever wanted to make an adjustment to an image but limit the effect to just the highlights or the shadows in an image?

Photoshop pros know they can press the Option-Command-~ sequence (Alt-Ctrl-~ for Windows users) and Photoshop will grab the highlights in an image and make them into a selection. Invert that selection, and the shadows are selected. Photoshop uses a very broad definition of highlights: one that reaches well down into the middle tones. For a quick and dirty selection of the brighter portions of an image, Option-Command-~ is helpful. The Coliseum in Rome on a dreary day in March. Ever take a photograph on a rainy, dreary day?

Before I bare all, I need to give you some background information, and I am pretty sure you have been in the exact same position at some point in your photography hobby or career. Not long ago, early 2010, I was horrible at photo editing. I was literally tossing my camera in a box and packing it away. My problem was that I was extremely frustrated with the quality of my images. Not necessarily the composition or the subject matter, but I couldn’t get my images to look “good” like all the photographers who were crushing views on Flickr. Thank goodness 500px was not around at the time, I really would have hated my photos.

Just before I sealed the tape on my box of photo gear I discovered High Dynamic Range imaging. So how do you combat this? It’s all about contrast Step one. Image Stacking for Landscape Photography Part One | David Shield Photography. Just four individually focused exposures were needed to create this image. Typically used during post-processing of macro photography, Zerene image stacking software processes multiple images taken of a single composition to create a completely in-focus output image.

Being a Landscape Photographer, I was curious if this concept would work for the type of images I capture. After using Zerene focus stacking software, I am now convinced that I am on to a really good thing, and in part one of my review I will explain why Zerene Stacker can be an invaluable tool for much more than just macro photography. I have added “Part One” to this review title simply because I have used the software to process just a couple of images so far. I intend to photograph and process more images using Zerene Stacker, which will allow me to fully illustrate the software’s limitless potential, in this field.

First lets take a quick look at the Zerene Stacker interface. Click on screenshot to enlarge Like this: Leggi argomento - Rivelatore Tri-x 400 - Lezioni di fotografia.

Premessa (è una storia lunga...), ovvero da dove nascono i problemi. Mini storia semi-seria e mezza inventata della tecnica fotografica! Tanto tempo fa qualche bislacco progenitore degli attuali uomini-marketing pensò che dire ai fotografi che oltre alla quantità di luce avrebbero fatto bene a misurare anche il contrasto e sviluppare le pellicole di conseguenza sarebbe stato davvero troppo difficile per le menti umane ed avrebbe complicato talmente tanto le cose da essere un suicidio commerciale.Ora come allora lo slogan che tirava era (ed È ) "voi premete il bottone, noi facciamo il resto" (è lo slogan della Kodak, in auge dal finire dell'800!

Overview of the M System | La Vida Leica! Last updated on January 29, 2014 -> Click here instead for large (1,688x1,200 pixel) complete Leica family tree <- Fully illustrated guide to film and digital Leica M bodies covering 60 years! The Leica M system as we know it has been in existence since 1954 when the first model, the M3 was introduced. Since its introduction, little seems to have changed on the surface - but there are many subtle differences. The M3 turned the 35mm camera industry on end with several groundbreaking features for the time including the bayonet lens mount (which is still in use today) and a viewfinder with multiple, automatically changing framelines with parallax correction that was bright and clear.

Over the years, the M system developed more on an evolutionary rather than revolutionary track. Small refinements and changes were added with each release: The MD variants are essentially "Documentation" cameras and do not feature a rangefinder or viewfinder. About 225,000 M3s were produced.

Discussing [C.O.] Pre-esposizione in stampa. Esempio concreto. in Fotografia analogica - Italia. Piedone_N47 says: Guardiamo ora i provini fatti e riportati qui sotto, i piu' interessanti sono i tre di sinistra: Il provino “1” e’ ottenuto con la sola esposizione di 15” e, come ci aspettavamo, va bene in toni medi e ombre, mentre presenta delle luci bruciate, fuori dal range della nostra carta. Il “2” ha sempre 15” di esposizione ma associati a 7” di pre-esposizione. I toni medi e bassi sono invariati, il loro contrasto non e’ influenzato, mentre le luci iniziano a rientrare nel range e sono comunque visibili ancora i bianchi “puri”.

Il “3” ha 15” di esp di base +, stavolta, 15” di pre-esposizione. Le luci “rientrano” ancora di piu’ ma senza cambiare toni medi e bassi. A mio gusto, la codizione del “2” e’ la migliore, anche se la “3” non mi sembra da buttare. Vediamo anche cosa succede se aumentassimo il tempo di esposizione “di base”.

Il “4” ha solo 20” di esposizione, e niente pre-. Il “5” e “6” ci dicono solamente che in questo caso e’ inutile dare pre-esposizione.

I will start by drawing a sphere in Photoshop. Tutorial di fotografia digitale e analogica | Gianmaria Veronese Ph* Child Worker - Adana | The Online Darkroom. By Omar Ozenir Child labour is one of Turkey’s long-standing social problems. At least 6% of Turkey’s children between the age of 6-17 work in the industry - at an average of 50 hours a week! There are many reasons that force children to work under the harshest of conditions.

For example, part of the public actually encourages the learning of a craft at an early age. Unfortunately, contributing a small but vital portion to the meagre family income is offset by having less, or even no time for school. During a summer holiday in my early teens, like many others of my age I also worked at a blacksmith in a derelict industrial estate in Adana, in the south of Turkey. Some technical bits for the interested: Leica M6 camera with a 35mm lens.

Italian Film Photography. New enlarger arrives on the scene - welcome Durst 606. As some of the readers may still remember (after all the updates about counters and benches, and closets, and flooring, etc.) this bus will indeed contain a functional darkroom.

After careful consideration a decision was made to have one enlarger set up for printing smaller formats and another one for larger formats (as well as prints larger than 16x20). We have plenty of Saunders LPL 4x5 enlargers to serve as the 'larger-enlarger', but only a few days ago I found this beautiful vintage Durst 606. I have to admit I'm rather impressed by this old Italian design. It is both very functional and extremely weird. The light come from a bulb positioned in the rear and goes through a condenser before being reflected down a mirror. The universal negative carrier has one piece of glass on the bottom and the negative is actually held down by the second condenser (!). The carrier also has masking blades built in to mask off a negative of any format from Minox to 6x6.

The general term “Retouching” can be categorized under the following subject-specific areas of Portrait, Editorial, Commercial, Beauty and Creative Retouching. Each of these areas possesses its own assembly of considerations around what “retouching” is when editing the image in question. In other words, the decisions and actions one undertakes when editing in the area of “Portrait” will be different from those undertaken when editing an image in “Beauty”. So how do we determine the category (its implicit techniques and time allocations) to be applied to an image?­­­ The following questions can help you evaluate which category your image falls under and how much time typically required to retouch one image.­­ 1. 2.
