How to stack layers in Photoshop as a Mean | Photoshop, etc. Three versions of a single image stitched together. Left to right: MO, DB, GA. In Color Correction it is a wise strategy to produce multiple versions of a single image (that is: to correct the same picture few times collecting different variations), then blend them together in a number of ways – to get the better of each one. This doesn’t necessarily involve that it must be the same person the one in charge, as my dear friend Marco Olivotto stated in a beautiful manifesto on collaborative color correction called Three Heads are Better than One. Although masks and blending modes may be required, the easiest blends of all (33-33-33 or maybe 25-25-25-25) can be difficult to obtain, unless you know the trick! The 50-50 blend of two layers is a piece of cake: you set the bottom to 100% opacity and the top to 50%. Let’s say you’ve three versions to blend (i.e. three layers) and you want to give the same weight to everyone. Smart Objects and Stack Mode Opacity ramp

La photo couleur : histoire d'une invention La photo couleur : histoire d'une invention L'autochrome, inventé par Louis Lumière en 1903, a été le premier procédé véritablement pratique de photographie en couleurs. Pourtant, dès les années 1870-1880, d’autres inventeurs et scientifiques ont réussi à fixer des images en couleurs. Partager La photographie en trichromie Le premier procédé indirect de photo couleur a été mis au point par Charles Cros (1842-1888) et Louis Ducos du Hauron (1837-1920). Leurs recherches, entreprises séparément, ont abouti au même résultat en 1869. Ce procédé, qui nécessite la superposition de trois images correspondant aux trois couleurs primaires, reste difficile à mettre en oeuvre. La photographie interférentielle Le physicien français Gabriel Lippmann (1845-1921) a été un autre précurseur de la photo couleur. Ce procédé, fruit de nombreuses années de recherches, est le résultat pratique d’une théorie physique développée par le professeur Lippmann. Les procédés grand public En savoir plus

Professional Photographer Magazine Web Exclusives: July 2013 Archives By Stan Sholik High dynamic range (HDR) photography seems to have passed through its early years of excess and taken on its role as another powerful tool for controlling scene contrast, both globally and locally. Its use is far from universal, however, even among photographers comfortable with HDR imaging, because of three limiting factors: the inability to batch process multiple files from a shoot to create HDR images; the need to use a tripod while shooting to ensure absolute alignment of the original images; and the need to have no or at least minimal movement in the scene during captures. Several HDR software solutions have addressed some of these issues with reasonable success, but HDR Expose 3 from Unified Color is the first to solve all three successfully in a single product. Previous versions of HDR Expose are renowned for their ability to create natural-looking HDR images with minimal artifacts and without the grungy HDR “look.” The third option is batch processing.

El vídeo está realizado por un grupo de fotógrafos que forman The Cooperative Photography y en el nos enseñan siete trucos fotográficos que se pueden realizar con materiales comunes. Crear un soporte para realizar timelapses es tan simple como utilizar una cámara Go Pro y un temporizador de cocina con la superficie superior plana (en este caso recomiendan el de Ikea).

lighting | Talking Pixels How do you get that glossy, reflective look that is pretty popular now-a-days? How do you get a cleanly blown out background? These are some of the questions we’ll go over today. The reflective foreground is really popular recently, and I think it’s due to Apple’s advertising, and the popularity of their iTunes coverflow view. I wondered how hard it was to get this look. I started out by researching what materials you could use that would produce a nice reflection. Now that I have a nice surface to get a good reflection on, I turned my attention to getting a nice, white background. In the first setup, I took a white paper backdrop and hung it from a background stand about 6′ from a table. Very little work was done to this shot. In this second example, the background, table, and softboxes were the same, but I used a single snooted SB700 (see diagram below). The only adjustment that I did to this shot was to blend the table to background transition. So what were my exposure settings?

Add Lens Flare To Your Image The Right Way I’m sure most of you have taken one look at the lens flare filter in Photoshop and decided to quickly over look it. Well I am here to say that you might want to reconsider and give it a chance. With the right steps and processing one can actually make it look decent. Before you start this process you should shoot or choose an image that would already look believable having had flare. Once in Photoshop always make a duplicate layer. So now you have this flare but it is a blueish light that probably does not match your subject. It is now where i do all my dodging and burning and selective sharpening. Here are some more before and afters. Related The Best Fstoppers' Posts From February 2013 Your "Likes", "Tweets", comments and clicks all help us know which are our best posts of the month.

Enfuse Enfuse is a command-line program used to merge different exposures of the same scene to produce an image that looks very much like a tonemapped image (without the halos) but requires no creation of an HDR image. Therefore it is much simpler to use and allows the creation of very large multiple exposure panoramas. Enfuse is based on a paper by Tom Mertens, Jan Kautz and Frank Van Reeth: "Exposure fusion" The implementation was done by Andrew Mihal (developer of Enblend) and the hugin team around Pablo d'Angelo An extended documentation could be found on Enfuse reference manual Other programs using Exposure Fusion: tufuse and PTGui Pro State of development On 8 September 2008 the first official version of enfuse has been released together with enblend.

Bodegones sin vino Habrá que empezar explicando qué es un bodegón. Nada que ver con un lugar grande donde hay almacenado mucho vino. Se le llama "bodegón" a una composición de objetos inertes, lo que se conoce también en el argot artístico como "naturaleza muerta". Y, aunque cuando decimos "bodegón" se viene a la cabeza un botijo con unas frutas y un mantel de encaje de bolillos; tan bodegón es ese como una composición hecha con tres tijeras, un puñado de tornillos y dos sacapuntas rebosando virutas dentro de una caja de cartón. En definitiva, se trata de objetos, no necesariamente de origen natural, ni tampoco podridos -lo digo por lo de "naturaleza muerta"-. Después de esta aclaración, se puede diferenciar entre un bodegón sin más, o una "fotografía de producto". Respecto a esto último quizás asociemos bodegones con estatismo, pero eso no es más que la visión clásica de este género, pues el movimiento de los objetos no tiene forzosamente que ser generado por ellos mismos (aquí os dejo ejemplos)

Le Labo alternatif - Procédé - Chimie - Mise a Jour [N&B] - Argentique - Photo numérique Comme c'est le grand ménage d'automne et que fan0u a pris en mains le topic général, je m'occupe de celui la, j'espere que NeoY2k y verra pas d'inconvénient . En premier j'ai envie de dire "N'ayez pas peur" , tout les procédés qui sont décris ici sont faisables par le commun des mortels avec tres peu de notion de chimie, et si les noms des produits sont un peu barbares, ce sont souvent les memes. Sachez quand meme qu'il est souvent nécessaire de comprendre le fonctionnement d'un procédé pour en tirer le meilleur partie et éventuellement (surement) corriger nos erreurs ! Plus que jamais l'expérimentations est nécessaire pour la pratique de ces procédés, et , si de nombreux guide tres complets et détaillés existent il faudra de toute facon passé par des essais et des ajustements. à propos des produits chimiques Certains procédés qui sont évoqué ici utilises des acides, mais aussi des produits dégageant des vapeurs nocives (ether entre autre), et necessitent donc quelques précautions. .
