For a while now, Aperture has been Apple’s signature professional photo management app, similar to what Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro have done for video and music. After WWDC, however, things looked a bit bleak for the software after Apple announced its rollout of its new Photos app – the keynote went by with no mention of any updates on Aperture itself. Today, it’s been confirmed by the company that development on the software has officially ended.
Adobe just released the much anticipated Lightroom mobile App. If you are an on the go creative, this is probably one of the things you wanted to see most coming out of adobe and finally a solid reason to move into the Adobe Creative Cloud.
The application enables synching photos between an iPad (or iPhone, no world on Android devices yet) and your desktop application via the cloud. but…. it also enables editing and tagging photos while making sure everything is in sync. [Read more…]
Just yesterday, the team at Adobe made their latest updates for Camera Raw and DNG Converter available for Photoshop CS6 and Creative Cloud. For CS6, Camera Raw 8.4 consists of updates in camera support, bug fixes, and lens profile support. For CC, however, there’s a few new features we can look forward to.
Photoshop alterations of women have been somewhat of a hot topic lately (or maybe more accurately – it now sells products to bash “Photoshopping”), so I thought I’d share my perspective as a photographer.
I absolutely love using Photoshop to manipulate the bodies of people to look more physically appealing. Why? Because, its my job to create images that look better than reality…and people that look better than reality sell photographs.
And here’s the dirty little secret – my clients and the people in those photos love it too.
Hit the break and let me explain.
Love it or hate it, one of the great things about being an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber is having access to the latest photo editing technology right away. (How much would we all love a camera and lens subscription service!?)
I first heard about Photoshop CC’s new camera shake reduction filter back in the summer and I finally had a change to shoot a series of photos specifically designed to test it out.

Ya, I know computer backup isn’t sexy – but if you don’t read any further – read this:

So, you probably read the news, two new sensor technologies were revealed this month, promising everything from flashless cameras (flash as in light popping device, not as in memory banks) to organic sensors that can one day overcome mankind.
While these are both revolutionary, I doubt we’ll be seeing one of these in our cameras soon, the other one? not sure, may be a tad quicker.
Here is what I think about the new kids in town. Those, of course are my own thoughts, and if you think I am wrong, feel free to hit me in the comments. [Read more…]
Readers on this blog know that I am a big fan off adding movement on time lapse footage. This can be done with motorized sliders, rotating pano heads and even a BBQ rotisserie. However those are sometimes hard (or expensive) to set up.
If you are looking for “dirty trick” to add motion to a static time lapse you could to it in after effects, or you could check out the new boy in town – Panolapse.
