Pro Capture for Lightning with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X Camera?

Pro Capture for lightning with the OM-D E-M1X camera?

Yes, please!

We just had a small lightning storm pass overhead here in Montana and while it was on it’s way I ran outside to see if Pro Capture would work for getting shots of lightning.

And it does!

For those not familiar with Pro Capture on Olympus, what it does is keep a pre-set number of frames in a buffer which constantly gets overwritten with the newest images while slightly depressing the shutter button, so that when the action does happen you fully press down on the shutter to save those frames it had in the buffer.

Starting with No Image Library in Luminar 3

In my Learn Skylum’s Luminar & Aurora HDR Facebook group, I have noticed some people wanting to kind of hit the reset button on Luminar 3. Maybe they added too many photos at once in Luminar and it is not running great. Or maybe they don’t want to even have Luminar 3 index their photos but still want to use Luminar 3while waiting for things like keywords and LR migration to appear in future updates.

I prepared a video just for you 🙂

This video also appears in my Mastering Luminar 3 Online Course.

I’ll show you a few ways to start from scratch and also which files and folders you can delete to free up some hard drive space if you don’t want to use a photo library in Luminar 3.

2 FREE HDR Photography Classes Available Using Aurora HDR from Skillshare

Earlier this year Macphun Software contacted me to produce a FREE HDR class with Skillshare, a global learning community for creators that features thousands of online classes.

The result was 2 separate online courses. A 32 minute Intro to HDR Photography: Shooting and Editing High Dynamic Range course and a 43 minute HDR Photo Editing: Perfecting Light and Detail course using Aurora HDR.

The courses are free to take. If you are not a member of Skillshare you will need to sign up with a credit card and you will have 90 days access to not only my courses but all of the courses on Skillshare. You can cancel any time before your card is charged.

 

“This class was very straight forward and not too technical. I have a DSLR, but do not know how to use it. The class helped me to understand and use aperture settings, f stops, ISO settings, AEB, etc. (really what happened is that when I heard these terminologies I read the manual and learned what they do!). Anyway, I followed the class instruction and produced a beautiful photo that is now on my desktop. Looking forward to an upcoming trip to Yosemite!” – David Senior

Here is a sample video of one of my courses:
