Soft Proofing for Print in Capture One Pro and Photoshop (Podcast 575)

This week I’ve created a video to explain soft-proofing for print in Capture One Pro and Photoshop, in response to a question from Chris Moore. I’d been meaning to do a video on soft-proofing in Capture One Pro for a while, so thanks for the question Chris! Soft proofing in Capture One Pro isn’t as useful as it could be, due to the lack of gamut warnings. But, I find that with modern printers doing such a good job of reproducing colors that the human eye perceives to be very close to the original colors in the photograph, even without being able Continue reading "Soft Proofing for Print in Capture One Pro and Photoshop (Podcast 575)"

Be a Creator Not a Collector of Photographs (Podcast 571)

Some people arrive at a location with preconceptions and their sole intent is to make their copy of a other peoples’ photographs that they’ve already seen. Today I’m going to discuss how and why I believe we should avoid being a collector, and shoot from our own appreciation of any given scene or subject.
A while back I contributed to a post on the Shutterstock Web site, as part of my work with OFFSET, one of my stock image agencies, and I thought I’d start there, and expand on what I said. The post was about how to avoid clichés in our

Conquer Fear & Self-Doubt with Amanda Crew

Amanda Crew is an actress who’s best known for playing Monica on the hit HBO show “Silicon Valley,” which I absolutely love for skewering tech culture in a loving but deadly accurate way. If you haven’t seen the show please, please do yourself a favor and check it out – season 4 recently premiered on HBO. But her career goes back many years: she’s appeared in a ton of shows and movies like Smallville, Final Destination 3, Life As We Know It and much more. We touch on a bunch of stuff here that I wasn’t expecting to get into Continue reading "Conquer Fear & Self-Doubt with Amanda Crew"
