In this video I look into the dark art of post-capture photography. In this era of RAW files and post-processing - how do you know when a photograph is ready? How do you know when to stop fannying about with the Lightroom sliders? Thanks to Meek for asking this very question and inspiring this video. Let me know in the comments section below how you know when a photo is done.
How good are sunrise/sunset prediction apps? Can they help you take better photographs? Are they a match for a photographer's experience and local knowledge? I decided to test them and find out!
Unsplash is a blight on the photo scene and a shining beacon for everything that's gone wrong with commercial (yes, commercial) photography. In this video I explain why stock photography sucks so much, why Unsplash is making it suck more, and what you can do about it! I was originally going to call this video F*** Unsplash but I didn't want to fall foul of YouTube's conservative tendencies and Trash rhymes with Splash, so here we are.
Some people are destined for greatness and some are destined to wallow around on the fringes of the outskirts of the boundaries of the outer edges of greatness. This is true in all walks of life and definitely true in the world of landscape photography where a few shooting stars achieve stratospheric success and the rest of us work just as hard and get a bit damp occasionally for our reward. But fear not fellow C-List Landscape Photographers, I have analysed the data and come up with a blueprint to financial success that will lift you from total mediocrity to tepid adequacy. Groovy!
Adobe have officially removed the 360 functionality from Photoshop that I and many other photographers used to fix the nadir holes on sphere panos. Fortunately there's a great alternative in the form of Affinity Photo and in this vido I show you how easy it is to fix those pesky voids at the top or bottom of your sphere panos.
Drones are awesome and I am very happy to own one. However there's a few things that you won't find out in DJI's flashy marketing videos and so, in the interests of transparency, I thought I'd run through a few things I'd known at the start.
