If you missed the live podcast you can watch it here. During the course of the video I discuss why I love this program for enhancing my photos, show some before and after examples, discuss workflow scenarios, and do a couple demonstrations using both Lightroom and Perfect Photo Suite.
I arrived in Zion National Park, Utah on Sunday with my colleague Christine Hauber ahead of our 2014 Zion Fall Foliage Photo Workshop a few days ago under cloudy skies and a slight drizzle less than an hour of when the sun would be setting. By the looks of it there wasn’t going to be a sunset that night, but the clouds hanging low over the Watchman were still very striking and photogenic.
Hard to tell with this cloud cover that within 45 minutes a striking sunset will occur.
As we were parking my RV at the campground and removing her car from the dolly we noticed the clouds were starting to break – there was going to be a sunset this evening after all – and it was going to be impressive.
Early morning on October 8th, 2014 I had the good fortune of photographing my second blood moon of the year. In April I was in North Scottsdale, Arizona when I photographed my “Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon over Phoenix” and this time I was in Abiquiu, New Mexico – about an hour north of Santa Fe. Here is how I created it.
First the planning:
Two days prior to the eclipse I went scouting in the Abiquiu area with my colleague Christine Hauber. I had a very specific idea in mind and we spent all day looking for the perfect spot. I was looking for an old adobe building – preferably an old church – that I could use in the foreground of my photo. When people looked at the photo I wanted them to think of New Mexico.
onOne Software’s upcoming Perfect Photo Suite 9 (available late October) promises speed gains over version 8.
In this video I will demonstrate the speed improvements using a folder containing 100 RAW images from the 36MP Sony a7R comparing browser speed between Perfect Photo Suite 8 and a beta of Perfect Photo Suite 9.
