The Wind Ruined my Sunset Photography

After a great talk at the Cambrian Photo & Optic show in North Wales, I drive my camper van to the Lake District for some hiking and sunset landscape photography. It was a nice evening, but the winds were strong and the light didn't materialise as I had hoped.

Perfect Pixels - TWiP GLAM!

Welcome back to TWiP GLAM! Today we feature the work of Toronto based photographer, instructor, and artist, Oz John.  Oz came to the world of photography through a formal education in advertising, graphic design and art direction.  This is a powerful combination, bringing an artistic sense and skilled leadership to image creation.   Oz’s work stands out as an exposition of creativity with in a well controlled formal framework.  Gazing from image to image you will find a tremendous attention to detail from pixels to emotional punch. The deliberate intention of his work is evident from the posing of his subject to his choice of textures to the use of shadows and light.   With a portfolio stretching into editorial, portrait, fashion and advertising, Oz’s work is a joy to behold and a delight to interview! _ About TWiP: http://www.thisweekinphoto.com - The This Week in Photo (TWiP) network covers topics including landscape photography, street photography, wedding photography, Photoshop processing, family photography and more.

Save 67% DISK: DNG lossy compression ISN'T SCARY!

Free trial of Lightroom: http://sdp.io/adobedeal BOOK: http://sdp.io/lr Adobe Lightroom can convert your raw files into LOSSY DNG files. Lossy DNG is a universal raw format that uses JPG-style compression intelligently to maintain your shadows and highlights that JPG files would normally remove. Lossy DNG minimizes traditional JPG artifacts, too. Lossy DNG isn't the right choice for all pictures, but if you're like me, you have thousands of raw pictures that you don't want to delete, but that you don't need to be completely perfect. Lossy DNG reduces disk space usage by more than 2/3 - so if your cloud backup bill is now $500/year, it could be $200/year. Over the next several decades that you'll want to keep your pictures, Lossy DNG could save you THOUSANDS. To convert your raw photos to lossy DNG, follow these steps: 1. Select the photos to be converted (for example, select all your 1-, 2-, and 3-star photos). 2. From the menu, select LIBRARY | CONVERT PHOTOS TO DNG. 3. Select the ONLY CONVERT RAW FILES, DELETE ORIGINALS AFTER SUCCESSFUL CONVERSION, ENABLE FAST LOAD DATA, and USE LOSSY COMPRESSION checkboxes. Clear the EMBED ORIGINAL RAW FILE checkbox. 4. Click OK and wait.
