Controlling Capture One Pro with a MIDI Keyboard (Podcast 619)

Today we’re going to explore an exciting way to use a MIDI controller that you might have lying around to controller Capture One Pro. You could, in fact, use this method to control pretty much any application that accepts keyboard shortcuts, but I love speeding up my workflow, so let’s take a look at my findings.
There are dedicated controller systems such as Pallete Gear and Tangent that I am aware of. I bought the Pallete Gear system and to be honest, for what it is, it took up too much space on my desk, so it found its way

The Art of Entrepreneurs /w Lewis Howes on School of Greatness

Today on the podcast, the tables are turned. I’m in the hot seat on my pal Lewis Howes’ podcast, The School of Greatness.

Creating Capture One Pro Camera Profiles with Lumariver (Podcast 618)

Following on from the previous episode, this week we look at creating camera profiles for Capture One Pro using a product called Lumariver Profile Designer. This is a video again, so the audio player is basically redundant, but I’ll include it anyway.
I’ll leave my notes below, for those that prefer to read, but this really is an episode that requires you to watch the video to not only understand how to create these camera profiles but also to be able to see the benefits when applying the profiles to images in Capture One Pro. Here’s the video.

Creating Capture One Pro Camera Profiles with basICColor Input 5 (Podcast 617)

 Today we’re going to start exploring options that enable us to create camera profiles for Capture One Pro, starting with basICColor input 5. This is something that I’ve been meaning to look into for a while, so I’m pleased to finally be able to bring this to you.
When I was using Lightroom, I used to use X-Rite’s Color Checker Passport to create camera profiles, which I could then assign to images, helping to make the colors as accurate as possible. Before we go on, I want to say that although I feel this is important for product shoot, when

Life Happens in COLOR with Nancy Lehrer (Podcast 616)

Today I’m really happy to be able to bring you a conversation with Nancy Lehrer. Those of you that used to participate in our forum before we had to close it down due to the constant spamming, may well remember Nancy. She always had something useful and insightful to add to the conversation and started a number of great topics herself too if I recall. 
Nancy has just written a book called Life Happens in COLOR – a Street Photography Manifesto, in which she shares some beautiful photography, as well as her firm opinions on the use of color

Brené Brown: Daring Greatly to Unlock Your Creativity

You guys know how much I love Brené. She’s been the show multiple times– in fact, I think she holds the record for most number of times on the show. Her philosophies on fear, vulnerability, and courage are so so powerful and when you realize how these things are acting in your life, you can unlock a whole new level of understanding around the things that have been holding you back. Today I’m going into the archives to share her first ever conversation with me on the show three years ago.

Canon Headquarters Exhibit Preparation and Showroom Video (Podcast 615)

After three months of running at full speed, last week I needed a rest. Not being one for just sitting down and doing nothing, I changed gears and gave myself a week to make some background music for a video I’d put together to show some of the large format prints emerging from the printer, the work involved in setting up the gallery space, and a sneak peek at Canon’s exclusive showroom and museum space in their headquarters.
This week’s audio podcast is primarily to tell you that the video is ready to watch and provide a gallery of the
