Flower Setups and TEXTURES workshop

Flower Setups and TEXTURES workshop with Lisa and Tom Cuchara
January 12, Sunday 9:30-4:30
In the morning you will photograph some textures and flowers. We will have setups and lightboxes for you to photograph. In the afternoon you will work on Photoshop and apply textures to your images. If you want to play you may bring some images for the afternoon session as well. You will come away with great images and learn how to make them on your own afterwards. 
We will provide some textures for you as part of the workshop, but you will also take some textures of your own to have as well. 
You will leave here with LOTS of textures of your own to use on your own images in addition to the ones we will provide for you. Note: having your own textures is important if you used textured images in competition (rules say all components of the image must be captured by the photographer). Images that are not competed may use purchased textures or textures from other photographers). 
This aspect alone (200 textures plus >25 of your own) is worth the price of admission, but we are not just giving you fish, we are teaching you to fish. Using Textures can really make your photos pop -- or use them to create fine art images.
Bring your dSLR, tripod, cable release (or use your self timer) and your LED light (if you have one).  Bring your laptop, or just sit next to someone and follow along, for the afternoon session.
Fee does not include lunch, but we will eat together and talk photography during the break).

Landscape Photography eBooks
Cover for The Art of Color Processing, a photography eBook guiding the creative development in Photoshop® CS6.
In The Art of Color Processing, I explain my color processing workflow in a step-by-step fashion, guiding you through each stage from start to finish. In addition to learning the details of my processing, I also discuss the history of my creative development and what led me to discover my own techniques. These important milestones in my photography can direct you towards the development of your own unique color workflows, and provide the key to unlocking the full potential of your creative connection for unlimited possibilities.
Processing an image is more than performing corrective edits – it’s a fundamental part of the complete creative workflow, and your artistic vision should flow seamlessly from the camera into the digital darkroom. If you have an identifiable disconnect between your vision and your final image, then the roadblock – whether it be technical or inspirational – needs to be removed. That is the focus of this eBook: to detail my own processing workflows while also explaining how to develop your own for a complete creative experience that will strengthen your connection and your ability to process with a vision.

Cover of Exposure Blending: A free eBook from camera to processIn this free step-by-step guide, I discuss the entire process of exposure blending by detailing my personal workflow – from auto-bracketing in the field, to combining different exposures in process – available at no cost.
As you've probably noticed, it can be difficult to capture a balanced exposure in the field (especially landscapes with a sky). Your camera sensor is limited to one aperture and one shutter speed at a time – it’s not possible to have two different settings within the same frame, which can be detrimental to a scene with a large tonal range. This will result in a landscape with a washed out sky, a darkened foreground, or disappointing combination of both. Exposure blending is a revolutionary digital dark room technique that will help you to overcome the limitations of your camera and photograph a landscape with the complete tonal range.



THE GOLDEN HOURS

Cover to The Golden Hours eBook, a photography guide to sunrises and sunsets with additional eBook on exposure blending.The Golden Hours: A Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets is an eBook written to help guide photographers through the unique challenges that this light presents. Many photographers will often note that their sunrise and sunset images rarely represent the scene they saw. I help to explain why this is so, and more importantly, how to transcend the disparity between your view and your results, allowing you to create realistic images of this beautiful light.
The “golden hours” refer to the window of time when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky, just before it sets or right after it rises. As the sun nears the horizon, the light begins to dramatically transform the landscape before you. The atmosphere becomes thick and golden, shadows are lengthened, and highlights are brightened. Soon, your scene develops texture, depth, and becomes a stunning show of light. It’s a highly-coveted time to photograph the landscape, but is also challenging to many photographers as the uniqueness of this light requires some specialized knowledge to capture.

THE GOLDEN HOUR PORTFOLIO

The Golden Hour Portfolio eBook is a monograph on the light of sunrises and sunsets, detaling the camera workflow of landscape photographer Christopher O'Donnell for each of his golden hour images.The disparity between learning a photographic technique and knowing how to apply it creatively to your environment is a source of much frustration for landscape photographers. This portfolio study can show you how to overcome this roadblock, and unleash your inner creativity.
With The Golden Hour Portfolio eBook, I can help to bridge the gap between your vision and your creation by explaining how I approached each of my golden hour images – and more importantly, why. By reading about my camera workflow, you can learn how to critically analyze a scene and decide on the best method to use that compliments your creative style.
I discuss many aspects of my creative process – some examples include how I find inspiration, choosing a strong focal point, pivotal moments in my creative development, and the importance of applying photography principles to your composition (such as contrast and symmetry).
Also discussed is the technical side of each image – what settings I use, how to compensate for exposure, and how to judge a scene before deciding what methods to apply.

THE ART OF BOKEH

Cover of The Art of Bokeh, a guide to using shallow depths in landscape photography.The Art of Bokeh: A Guide to Using Shallow Depths in Landscape Photography was written to inspire photographers to think beyond the confines of a deep depth of field. It’s focused on guiding landscape photographers of all levels to widen their aperture and see the environment as light and shapes, and to create abstract, ethereal images that have a deeper meaning and interpretation. This is my first eBook, written from my perspective and experiences, and I’m thrilled to present it.
By using a shallow depth of field and thin slices of focus, you can completely transform a landscape, manipulating an environment that usually can not be changed or controlled. You can create a complex or simple photograph by changing your depth, and this guide shows you the steps necessary to capturing beautiful bokeh.

THE PORTFOLIO OF BOKEH

An ebook monograph on the bokeh portfolio of Christopher O'Donnell, using shallow depths in landscape photographyWith The Portfolio of Bokeh, I can help to bridge the gap between your vision and your creation by explaining how I approached each of my bokeh images. By reading about my camera workflow, you can learn how to critically analyze a scene and decide on the best method to use.
In this eBook, you will find 22 full page examples of my strongest bokeh images in high-resolution color. Each photo is paired with a full page spread that contains a wealth of information on how I created each image. I discuss many aspects of my creative process – some examples include how I find inspiration, choosing a strong focal point, and the importance of applying photography principles in your composition (such as contrast and symmetry).
Also discussed is the technical side of each image – what settings I use, how to compensate for exposure, and how to judge a scene before deciding what methods to apply…for example, how and when to decide if a scene needs to be panostitched or auto-bracketed.

Ask Tim Grey - Harm from Live View

This is worth reading. I subscribe to obth DDQ and Pixology and am always learning from Tim, but this post is especially worth reading...

FYI, Tim Grey allows re-blogging of his posts as long they are posted in their entirety. Lisa


Ask Tim Grey eNewsletterDecember 11, 2013

Providing Answers to Photographers for Over a Dozen Years...
     

Today's Question: In a recent podcast episode Tim and Renee spoke highly of shooting with live view, especially for close focus shallow DOF [depth of field] circumstances. I have tried it for this purpose too and it works well. The Canon 6D manual, however, cautions against continuous live view use for a long period as it can cause internal temperature rise that would cause image quality to deteriorate, and I have read elsewhere it could possibly even cause camera damage. So my question is, how long is a “long period”?
Tim's Answer: This is a great question, which of course doesn’t have a clear and specific answer.

To begin with, there is no question that using the Live View feature of your digital SLR will cause some problems. On any camera, such continuous use of the image sensor will lead to a rather significant (and relatively quick) increase in heat, which leads to greater noise in any images you capture. Of course, the same is true for capturing a large number of images in a relatively short period of time, especially under hot conditions. By contrast, if you use the Live View (and thus the image sensor) sparingly, and the temperature is relatively cold, there will be less heat buildup and thus less noise in the images.

For cameras (such as digital SLRs) that feature a shutter mechanism, the Live View option can also be harmful to the shutter, leading to earlier-than-expected failure of the shutter. That is because the shutter must remain open the entire time you are using Live View, which among other things can stretch the springs used in the shutter assembly.

Of course, you could also argue that simply taking a picture damages your shutter, since a shutter has a limited life expectancy measured in a number of actuations. That, of course, would generally relate to the number of images captured, and most shutter mechanisms in today’s digital SLR cameras have a life expectancy measured in the hundreds of thousands of actuations, perhaps up to a maximum of around one million actuations.

In any event, I do recommend being somewhat judicious in the use of Live View. I certainly couldn’t cite a number in terms of how long you can use Live View before too much heat builds up or until you’ve actually done harm to the shutter mechanism. But the point is that while I love using Live View, I do try to minimize the use.

In other words, if I feel it will improve a given photo, I will absolutely use Live View. But I will also try to limit the amount of time I’m using Live View by working somewhat quickly, and also by being conscious of these issues and not turning on Live View until I’m ready to use it, and turning it off as soon as I’m done using it.

I wouldn’t go to extreme measures here, as in most cases the harm done will be relatively modest. But it is something worth keeping in mind, and it is worth developing good habits when it comes to the use of Live View.

Flashlights for night photography and light painting.

Flashlights for night photography and light painting.

We love night photography and have purchased a plethora of  flashlights, some are great and some not so great. Here are our favorites, and with an explanation of which we use under what conditions.

Do not use a white light flashlight at night for routine work, you will be blinded and have no night vision. We went to a recent night photo workshop and people had all kinds of bright white lights, and head lamps, they had no night vision and when they looked at someone they became blinded too.

This is the red flashlight for seeing in the dark. red preserves your night vision and allows you to see camera dials, etc.


This one is best for light painting (and it has red and Blue filters for fun color effects)


This one is good for painting things far away, like lighthouses and rocks. We find it too bright and it has a hot spot when you are close, but it is perfect for things further away. For things closer better to spend more time with a dimmer more even flashlight like the one above.


A headlamp is wonderful to have. It is great for hands free walking at night. preserves night vision. Do not use when photographing, as light will leak in thru viewfinder,etc. if you are standing behind your camera.


This last one has its own tripod, so it is great when you are on a dark night and need to focus. Turn it on, use auto focus, switch focus to manual focus and turn off flashlight.

Camera Roundups 2013: What to Buy and Why

The holidays are a great time to take pictures - and they're a great time to get a camera for yourself or for a loved one. With more than 50 cameras going through the hands of the DPReview team over the year, we've seen it all (or so we think). Based on our collective knowledge we've been preparing and publishing a series of roundups covering current gear in all of the major product categories which we hope will help you make an informed decision on which camera will fit your needs. We've already published a lot and there's more on the way, so keep checking back on the site.

"Visions of Myanmar" exhibit

I am excited to announce my "Visions of Myanmar" exhibit at the Great Ponds Gallery, 4 Precinct Street (Lakeville Library) Lakeville, MA, from December 3rd - January 20th. 
Rudyard Kipling said it best: "this is Burma and it will be quite unlike any country you know about". Once known as the Pearl of Asia, Myanmar is a country of stunning historic sites and inhabited by friendly and welcoming people. Their strong traditions and culture is deeply rooted in Theravada Buddhism. Due to its isolation from Western influences for roughly 50 years, a visit to Myanmar is like traveling back in time. I have visited Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, on two occasions. My first trip was in December of 2011 and I returned in January of 2013.

More information can be found here

I hope some of you will be able to join me at the opening reception!
