Today I wanted to talk to you about the forest fires in Oregon, my parents called me they were living in Southern Oregon, and they were talking about the huge amounts of forest fires that came out, I think from a set of lightning strikes that occurred from a storm that passed through over the weekend, that's a really dangerous thing about summer storms that pass through those hills and Oregon off the coast, is that they bring with them some charge. And that ends up in lightning. And then we end up with some strikes. And these remote regions have hills out in the Siskiyou mountain range. And those start fires. In those rural, I mean, just like remote wilderness areas of forest. And that's where we've had a couple of burns over the last couple of decades that have been very seriously maybe some of the most serious forest fires in the nation of the United States have occurred in those locations outside of some of the places in California last year where we saw property damage, that sort of thing. But that is regions of acreage, I think some of the largest areas had been in the wilderness areas of Southern Oregon in the last couple of decades, I guess it is now but it's been kind of tough. We went out on a drive recently. And we were in Central Oregon, which is probably a couple of fires out there, which is you know, there's no shortage of timber and fire danger in some of those locations, especially because of you know, lightning strikes and that kind of activity like that. But last year was dense and difficult to get through the summer because of smoke and because of fires that were going on in the forest fire damage. But this year, too, it's tough. So hopefully this is maybe a shorter-lived experience. And I hope that the firefighters can get a handle on it and get containment on here pretty soon. But it was something that was affecting our ability to get out you know, there was like visibility down to just a couple miles. It was nice that it was at least that but there was a lot of interference from the smoke. That was out even up in Central Oregon, 2:12 I was surprised. You can see more of my work in Billy Newman's photo calm, 2:21 you can check out some of my photo books on Amazon, I think you can look at that Bitly numen under the author's section there and see some of the photo books on film on the desert, on surrealism, camping, and cool stuff over there. I ran into another guy out there. And he was like an agate picker. This is something I want to get into too. I was talking a little bit about agates, how they're formed and how they show up and all that and I'd be interested to find out the geology of how some of these creeks have agates formed in him here along the west coast. I think it's kind of cool to the land formation I would the geology is over here. And however, that goes back to the history of the agate formation of what went on over at the coast. But I think just north of Newport there's a beach called agate beach, apparently a place where there's going to be agates found, but this guy that I was talking to was saying what he was saying like if you kind of Prowl around town in this kind of these older, smaller, you know, coastal cities here in Oregon and probably in Washington or wherever they might be. But if you kind of Prowl around the town you'll sort of see these almost kind of just it says rock shop or gem shop or something like that at some sort of little shack kind of place with the old sort of weathered sign on it that sort of looks goofy looks like an old-time prospector kind of just works there and kind of does it himself but I guess he did some of those people some of those guys there are some of the more invested rock towns in the area. And some of those guys if they've retired, I guess you know, the lead up some of their picking spots or their lead up some of their information on what they've done to collect some of these cool rocks and gems over the years. But some of those people in those local town spots, have some good kind of easy starter information for people that are getting into some of the rock counting stuff. But I was told recommended by a guy over Newport to try to find a man named rooster. So I could find out about the good rock hound in spots. Sounds fun, I haven't taken it up on it yet, but the guy gave me an agate that he had collected and I guess he was telling me that the good time to go is in the wintertime after some of the bigger winter storms come in off the coast and then dredge up well I guess not dredge up but I guess they wash out the light I guess like we were talking about the wash out the sand, it's kind of come into sandbars they wash out then it exposes some of the gravel beds, some of those rock beds that are a little bit lower down in the sediment, and that exposes some of the beds that have the agates in them and I guess those come out during low tied in the winter time, I guess after what January February, something like that. And that's when this guy has found most of the agates that he's spotted out there in areas like agate beach up to up to where I don't know what's up north of there is at the corner head or is that below it? I can't remember now but it's cool. Yeah, so it's fun going out and doing some agate-hounding stuff. 5:32 You can check out more information at Billy Newman photo comm you can go to Billy Numan photo.com, forward slash support.

And Lightroom stuff, I'm gonna try to like develop a lot of photos like with the travel stuff that we did the trip and like the trip that I did with my dad out to Christmas Valley, and some of the stuff around like the teepee rings that I was photographing. We're trying to like edit a few of those. And I've been doing most of that in Lightroom. But I've been trying a couple of different other pieces of software and haven't gotten super far with it. So we got to do more research, this will be an ongoing segment for our podcast, which will be fun, too, we should try out some betas I don't know where we can get a hold-up. But there's Lightroom. And see like, there's some news about how like Lightroom is switched over to the Lightroom Creative Cloud, which is going to be sort of a cloud-based photo editing system, I think it's going to be a little bit more lightweight, I think it's going to be a monthly subscription system. And then there's also going to be Lightroom classic, which is going to be the current Creative Cloud, a professional Lightroom system. And I think that's going to be like your disk management system, like how to put files onto your computer hard drive and how to edit them, and then how to like process them out and put them somewhere. So that's still going to be around and I guess going on, but it's only going to be a subscription system from now on. I think that's kind of pushed a lot of people including myself to consider what other editing options are going to be out there like file management systems for your photographs. And there are a few new other systems that are coming up that also seem a little bit more modern, in some ways, too. But I think it'd been kinda interesting. And it's been cool, checking them out a little bit. One of them was Capture One. And you and I had looked at that one a little bit. 7:46 Yeah, you showed me that one a little bit. When you put on your computer. 7:49 It's cool. I want to learn a little bit more about it. I know there's a lot of content out there about it. There's the phase, the phase one camera system, have you heard a little bit medium format, digital camera system, it's really expensive, real nice, apparently, I only know like a little bit about it. But those raw files, they're immense, medium format, digital, raw files. And so the processes, they kind of constructed their editing software, that was this Capture One software, and I think it was supposed to be a more modern system of rendering your raw file adjustments. And I think it's supposed to be kind of tuned specifically to the raw files produced by this phase one camera, which is an interesting piece of software, you know, it's technical. And I see like a lot of professional photographers kind of shifting over to it, but at least I see I see it popping up a little bit more in sort of a higher-end fashion system or like people that are using phase one systems or a lot of Sony systems because I think it's so specific to the Camera RAW file that's produced. It's sort of strange, right? I think it's built for the phase one camera. Right and like for a lot of other file types, yeah, for those file types and a lot of the Sony file types. So I think a lot of like the Sonyadditionalographers are getting the Capture One Pro software, and they make like a free Sony editing software that's a little bit stripped down. It's like the Sony Capture One express or something like that. Who knows what it is, but I pulled that on my computer, I've been messing with it and I pulled a demo for Capture One Pro. And it was cool kind of messing around with a different raw editor. It's different than Photoshop different than Lightroom. But it's, it's still kind of like the same panel and slider idea. You have a panel you have like hue and color and sharpness and haze and whatever. And you can kind of make some adjustments to it. But it was interesting, to do something different with the raw processing. And I guess it's supposed to be faster. So the idea is supposed to be a more modern system. It's one of those things where Lightroom was built years ago like back in 2006 and 2007. I guess there wasn't the ability to throw a lot of processing I went to the graphics processor. I don't think it was as important back then they use your graphics processor for rendering and processing and crunching some of the graphics stuff, the editing. So I think a lot of that was built to like run and process the raw files through the, just the main processor. So I guess there are a lot of things about Lightroom that just aren't made to run slow, given the modern computer architecture that people are using, and other people are developing. And so I think that's where like there's an advantage to maybe some future new Adobe software, but also for some of these current players that are trying to do some of this photo editing software stuff like the other one. Affinity Photo, which is one that I think you'd see 10:42 a little just a little bit. Yeah, I really, I've not put anything on my computer. 10:50 Yet, I haven't put anything on. I know, it looks like a lot is going on there It looks like and I hear a lot of people talking about how impressive the iPad app is if you have an iPad Pro, I guess the affinity pro app on an iPad is really powerful for tablets, tablets. And you can do a lot of stuff like with the pencil, the Apple Pencil, or with your finger to do like healing adjustments, a lot of stuff like that, that you really couldn't do with software outside of Photoshop before. So it's cool that they made some progress on that. And I guess Affinity Photo is also producing digital file management software to go along with Affinity Photo, which I like the Lightroom part of 11:32 it. Yeah. Yeah, kind of like Lightroom. 11:36 I think it's the Lightroom part and the part where you can apply adjustments to multiple files at the same time. Oh, sure. Stuff like that. I think it's like a lot of those features that they're trying to build out this year, because of the changes that Adobe has made to the Lightroom system. And how they're changing over to like the Creative Cloud system and the, you know, kind of Lightroom Express system. 12:00 Yeah, not as much of a pro tool. 12:02 That's what I've heard it sounds like yeah, so I think that's why a lot of professionals are a little bit unhappy with that adjustment into their workflow, you know, they're just looking for that, that professional system that they have to increase and get better in the ways they need. Yeah, I think I think Adobe is trying to hit a wider market of hobby photographers or Instagram, you know, kind of it's more about adjustments. Yeah, yeah. One-click kind of adjustments. Yeah, sort of thing. Yeah. 12:29 It'll be interesting to see how that ends up going. 12:33 Yeah, it will be interesting, you know, that that's sort of the shift in modern computers in a lot of ways. And if you were working on an iPad, I bet it'll swell a bit. It'll be pretty cool, you know, to run a bunch of photos off on an iPad through that system. You know, probably they work. Okay. I don't think it's the direction that I'm gonna go. I don't know, I just actually seem like it's the right, the right zone. 12:57 That was what I was thinking. I'm hoping that the change encourages these other companies to Oh, yeah, develop theirs, their products were, 13:07 I was, yeah, I 13:08 was hoping they'll be there'll be something to kind of replace what Lightroom is right now. They like Lightroom. 13:15 Before Lightroom, there was an aperture that was built by aperture, and then they stop producing aperture. I don't know what's gonna happen with Lightroom. I'm sure that it's going to stick around. And I'm sure it's going to be like the top of market share for a long time for photographers editing software, it'll likely kind of remain in my workflow for a long time, too. I was looking around at Capture One, it's not the thing I want to use. Yeah. affinity there's some future, you know, but I haven't any, there's not the thing that I'm looking to use in the way that I use Lightroom right now, 13:47 that was what I noticed when I was looking through other photo editing software. There really, there are a lot of things that look cool. And like they could be something useful. Yeah. But it's just not realistic. It just doesn't seem like it's there yet. Kind of editing. I'm trying to go for it. 14:06 We'll see what pops up in the next year. And I you know, I guess the cool thing is like the given version of Lightroom that I have right now is it's totally fine for me. 14:15 Yeah, this old version of Lightroom. Anyway, 14:18 yeah, they come out, but I'm still always happy with the older ones for a long time. So I'm kinda interested. I'm only interested in buying software that I own. I'm not interested in leasing software, even as a working professional, even if I'm making money from using the software. Yeah, it's got to be a really special kind of business software license that I'm working on. But it can't I don't want to rent software. It can't be my color correction software for my photographs. I need to own that database. Yeah, it's a really good thing. Yeah. And for as much as I'm working it, I think I need to I mean habits, no service. 14:56 Right? Yeah. It's just something that is part of your daily 14:59 work. I get Paying for storage, paying for the website paying for hosting paying for processing, and something like that. But then I don't want to pay for the thing in total, if it's just raw processing and color correction, cropping, and exporting of a file like there are a lot of image editing systems out there. And everything I can do, I can do on an older system. But I'm interested if we go forward with some new software, I'm interested in trying like, like affinity, or you know, one of these other more modern just buy outright systems. It's like, yeah, it's like $100. It's not like there's Pixelmator Pro. That's it a new program coming out. Yeah. And that's supposed to be kind of a Photoshop-level replacement for stuff. I think that's like, definitely when you're like, working with layers working with, you know, textures. And so yeah, you can do a lot with it. Yeah. 15:45 I think that I had looked at that one briefly. And yeah, that one is more like Photoshop. Yeah. Or has more Photoshop capability? Yeah. 15:52 Yeah. I've heard people are really into that and are like really surprised with the level of quality that they can do and the speed that they're able to process that stuff. As an as like were we talking about? It's built to work on metal? Like, I think a couple of these things that we've been talking about are Apple apps. And I think metal is that system where it writes, it writes quickly to the graphics card. Right? Yeah. So what is that I can't remember, I can't remember the names of these, like these graphic layers, these graphic options used to work. But yeah, this is supposed to be a way faster system of processing some of that graphic stuff. And guys, this was to be a big benefit. But that's the sort of thing I want to try out with you is that, and I want to try to kind of invest in that stuff, just because we would own it, we have a license, we get to use it for as much as we'd want to. But yeah, we should try and check it out a little bit. Also, I kind of think it'd be kind of fun to get some of the software, and just do like little videos about 16:46 it. Oh, that'd be fun. Yeah, I'm just like, trying it out checking it out. Like hey, like we're, yeah, we capture one. Yeah. 16:55 We just kind of check out. Yeah, yeah. But I want to try some of these. I want to try, like, you know, tech checks out and, and see if some of these other tools are better, or more modern, or kind of make a different, more creative result. Yeah, a bit of that in Lightroom, where you seem to kind of fall in like a little bit of a rut of like, how Lightroom edits a photo? Oh, my 17:19 gosh, Yeah, no kidding. Yeah, you can get a little stuck in routines, or just like how you kind of have to adjust it? 17:26 Yeah, yeah, there's a little bit of that. And I'd like to see if there's some new thinking around that workflow that makes it a little bit or breaks up my creativity a little bit, make something a little different. So I think it's worth it just in the sense of that kind of investment. But, but yeah, overall, I think I mean, you know, everything's fine. So I'm one of those people that kind of says, Yeah, I usually use the old or use. I don't know, Adobe Camera Raw, if you have to, it's probably like most of the adjustments that you need to do anyway, I think I'm not big into retouching stuff. You know, but like, I think you need to like work a raw file. Yeah. process its color. Correct. It makes sense it. So yeah, I think there's a lot you can do just with about anything, but it's kind of interesting, just seeing like, some of these new software's come out and how they're being developed. There's another one like one, it's up in Portland. Yeah. Seems like a Lightroom competitor. So the idea behind it, I've not gotten into it, I think that like a beta comes out. And I was a little confused about how to use some of it. But, again, like that's the main thing I'm saying is all these new photo editing software's it's like, I'm kind of confused how to use them. So grants are ingrained in using the stuff in Oh, yeah, just the layer? Yeah. Yeah. It's been cool. He's just been like, what I've gotten used to for a long time. So I know, we're kind of making a transition. But it's that bad. 18:46 Yeah, it'll be interesting. Just check out some of these new things. Yeah. Alright, 18:51 check out more stuff with you. I don't know. We'll have to figure it out. We got to figure out some new editing stuff. But really, I think for a long time, I want to want to jump into a bunch of these raw files that we have from the last month or so. One of them is I want to try and compare presets. This is something we haven't done much before. But I want to try and get into some presets for Lightroom stuff. Yeah, and I want to try and do a little investment into like affinity or into Pixelmator or you know, one of those other alternatives. I think with affinity at least there are a bunch of preset systems for the photo editing stuff there too. I want to try and compare them a little bit or run some of our other photos through it and see what kind of creative results we get. I like working with some of these preset packets over in Lightroom or some of the new stuff that you could do over in affinity just be kind of cool to try and experiment a little bit with that. 19:40 Yeah, I think that would be cool to get into the preset stuff a little bit. I see that as like a huge part of a lot of photographers' workflow. Yeah, I'm curious about like, what, what that is like to use 19:51 um, yeah, I'm pretty interested too I see tons of people on the Instagram kind of promoting their preset systems. 19:57 Oh yeah. selling their preset time. 20:01 I don't know if I'll do that so much as watching a YouTube video about how one built such and such preset package. 20:10 What I'm interested in, 20:11 there's lots of stuff out there, we can find that that could kind of be a creative start for us to find something to do. But it's interesting to see the levels of editing that go into some of the color corrections that happen on these photographs. Oh, yeah, yeah, some levels of editing that I'm not familiar with. So I guess there's a lot that I should learn about it. You know, 20:29 really, like, that's a big part of why I'm interested in seeing other people's preset packages. Yeah, I just want to understand like, four presets that are for photos that I think look better. Oh, yeah, like, Good, right. I'm just, I'm just interested in seeing like, what does that look like? I'm trying to figure out when someone else is putting a photo together. Like, 20:50 I'm trying to figure it out, too. Yeah. What is the system of stuff on the side that you're looking at? What are the adjustments that are going on? Like, what hue and tint stuff is being pulled around? It seems like there's a lot of stuff going on in there. Like there are a few kinds of granular changes in color correction stuff that I'm probably not getting into, in my photographs. And I bet there's a lot of stuff that could be pretty cool. 21:12 Yeah, I think it'd be really interesting to get into 21:15 Yeah, I want to do some imagination, some photographs that have, yeah, 21:19 I've been going back through really like my portfolio, I guess, and trying to reevaluate what my best photos are, and also just re-edit a lot of stuff. Oh, that's great. Yeah, but yeah, I'm trying to get into better finer editing. 21:36 See, yeah, I'd like to try and figure that out, too. Yeah, I've noticed that that's like an element of the post-processing, post-processing stuff that I want to get into, more heavily is like the level of editing stuff that I'm able to do, or just the level of choices I'm able to make when I get into something like Lightroom, or affinity in the future. So it'd be cool that we should develop on that it'd be cool to try and push ourselves on that a little bit and see if we can learn some new tricks. Yeah, man, I like that I process probably 200,000 and 300,000 photos, and the last couple of years. I usually export stuff. And so with that, I don't know what I did, or, you know, there's not, it's just, it's just sort of automatic. Or, you know, like there's a lot of things that like aren't setting now. It's a weird thing. Like, I've just kind of moved through Lightroom for a long time. 22:25 Yeah, I know, there's a lot of stuff that you probably kind of just like, auto-work through. I know, that's how it is for me. Yeah, a lot of pictures. And I think it's fun as much time on. 22:35 It's like, it's when like when Tiger Woods was playing golf. And like halfway through, he needed to get a new coach for swing. I don't know, golf. But yeah, you're like any coach, because he was like hurting his shoulder. After all, his swing was wrong. So we need to like to correct his swing. But it's one of those things where it's like muscle memory, right? It's like so ingrained in like the way you do something, I should hold something. So it takes a lot to kind of break that habit of yourself that muscle habit yourself and then kind of figure out a new way to do the thing that you do. So we got to kind of break ourselves a little bit, but I want to do a bunch. Like as we get more and more into wedding photographs, I want to try and figure out some interesting stylistic things that we can do in those photographs through our post-processing. 23:16 Absolutely. Yeah, I've been really because that's what I've been doing for photo editing. Yeah, mostly the last couple of months as well like wedding photo stuff from work that we've been doing. Yeah. And yeah, I want to get into more of a stylized way of doing that. A little bit more of a particular kind of quality. Yeah, I like their photos are awesome. They're so good. But I want to, I mean, that's kind of what I like about going back to like the Sony cameras and stuff like, like, they don't even have to be edited. They look beautiful, already. But I want to get into making them look a little bit more like a style. Yeah, not just that it's a really beautiful photo, but that it's like, 23:58 No, I want to work in a good way, I want to be selective about our lens use. 24:04 Oh my gosh, I 24:05 think there's a lot that we know to do in that that we're not able to execute right now for some of our projects. And that's something I want to change, you know where we go, we get some stuff in there. But that's that, that right piece. So I want to focus on that. And then I want to focus on our post-processing element on top of that, to get the right kind of texture in the file when we make it and the right kind of colors and you know, just that the right photo. And then I want to try and do a great job in Lightroom or our post-processing stuff to kind of pull that out and make it the most and make it look a little style is a little different, and a little better. Yeah, it'll be cool. I think we've got a pretty distinct style with the things that we've been working on over the years. I want to try and push that visually into just the new directions. 24:55 Thanks a lot for checking out this episode of The Billy Newman photo podcast.

Happy 2023! I use a lot of photo software for my photography - Lightroom, Photoshop, ON1 Effects, ON1 Resize, Topaz Sharpen AI, Luminar Neo, Radiant Photo… I admit it, I like software tools. I don't use every tool every day, some are more specialized or niche than others. My core processing tools are Lightroom and ON1 Effects. These are my bread and butter. These days, subscriptions are common place. Like it or not - subscriptions are here to stay. Adobe was the first to make the pivot to the subscription model, leaving perpetual licenses in the rear view mirror. Other vendors have waded into the subscription waters, and I think it's a matter of time before perpetual licenses become the exception and not the rule. I have been a subscriber to Adobe's Photography Plan for several years now. I got curious if the Adobe subscription has been worth the money for me and my photography. I took a look at the features Adobe has delivered since November 2019 and asked a simple question about each feature - would I pay to upgrade for that feature? Listen to the episode for my thoughts and my more complete analysis is below. For me, the subscription pencils out and I'm getting value for my yearly outlay to Adobe.2023 Photo WorkshopsIt is the start of a new year and a great time to think about where you want to take your photography in 2023. I wholeheartedly endorse attending a photo workshop - not a photo tour, a photo workshop - to improve your photography and spark your creativity. This was one of the very first topics I talked about, way back in Episode #3 of the Stop Down Photography Podcast. If you are new to the podcast, you may have missed this episode. Have a listen.I am hosting workshops in 2023. All of the workshops for 2023 are listed on my workshops page. Some workshops are sold out. There is space open in my two Oregon workshops in November of 2023.The Oregon Coastal Adventure, Nov 7-10, 2023: Headquartered in the heart of old town Florence, Oregon on the Siuslaw River, this workshop concentrates on the central Oregon coastline. Locations include Heceta Head, Heceta Beach, Yachats, and the breathtaking Cape Perpetua. We'll also venture inland to Sweet Creek for an excellent forested hike along a picturesque creek.Bandon Beach & Beyond, Nov 13-16, 2023: Based in Bandon, Oregon with its amazing sea stacks, this workshop explores Bandon and the southern coastline of Oregon. Locations include Shore Acres in Coos Bay, Port Orford, Lone Ranch Beach, Sisters Rock, and the endless pockets of rugged coast between Bandon and Brookings at the southern border of Oregon.Whether you join me on a workshop or sign up with another photographer, make 2023 the year you immerse yourself in several days of photography. You'll be glad you did.My Lightroom Subscription AnalysisThe context for my examination of my Lightroom subscription has two primary constraints: I care about Lightroom Classic, the desktop-centric applicationI am the type of person that historically upgrades my software every yearSo, how did I judge the Adobe Lightroom releases? I reviewed the Adobe Lightroom release notes for the versions released from November 2019 through October 2022 and looked at each feature in each release. The question I ask about each feature is simple: If Lightroom were a traditional, perpetual license, would I pay to upgrade to have that feature?The summary of my analysis is yes, for me, the Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop subscription is worth the money. The features that Adobe has put into Lightroom have been compelling enough to Adobe released four major versions of Lightroom in the last three yearsVersions 9.x, 10.x, 11.x, and most recently 12.0I would have paid for three of themThe 9.x, 11.x, and 12.x releases have features that are compelling to me and I'd pay to get themAssuming a perpetual license for a Lightroom upgrade would be in the $100-$120 range:3 paid upgrades would be about $300-$360My subscription plan costs $120/year, or $360If it were Lightroom alone, the subscription (probably) costs a bit more than yearly paid upgrades. However, the subscription also provides a license for Photoshop which I also use, has also gotten feature updates, and back in the day costs hundreds of dollars for a single license.Rate & ReviewIf you enjoyed this episode, please rate and review it on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or Podchaser.com.

HT1396 - Apply to Stack I regularly employ stacking in my Lightroom catalog to organize groups of images. With some frequency, I then apply a color label, a development preset, a star rating or a keyword to the top image in the stack. Wouldn't it be handy to be able to apply that to all the images in the stack, especially any development adjustments. How about it, Adobe?

Today, I wanted to speak to you a little bit about rendering out mp4 video. I know that's probably a pretty exciting topic for everybody. That's what I've been doing recently, I've been trying to kind of put all of that on this workhorse desktop computer that I'm using. And I'm trying to use Well, first I was trying to use Lightroom, right, you are probably familiar with talking about Lightroom for managing photos and sort of working with them and editing them. It also has limited capabilities of working with the video files that come off the DSLR that are just kind of commonplace with modern DSLR cameras. So bringing those videos over there, they're normally some kind of MPEG container format of which I've seen I guess, MK V or chaos is that sort of Chrysler, I don't know, isn't, it might be a different thing. But there's like a hit like MTS or something like that there's a handful of these different little container file extensions that I'm trying to sort out, they're fine, they seem to open to most things, I'm not having a big problem with it. Other than AVC HD, I'm trying to sort those out if I have any of those raw ones around. But I have this library of videos around now, I appreciate having the original files. And if that's important to you, as a media creator, I recommend keeping those source files around at a higher quality. But for me, with a lot of elements of video, especially a lot of projects that are done, but maybe some things that are kind of like an accomplished project, but I want to keep those media elements around, but not necessarily in their whole quality by any means anymore. So I'm trying to go through and render those things out. And not necessarily about a quality thing, but just about an odd format thing like I was just explaining with MK V's and Mt SS and three GPS and mo visa those are quite common, but I'm trying to make the system just a little bit more uniform for the video experience of the videos that I have. I'm trying to render those out. I was trying to use Lightroom. To do this. I was trying to use it in mass to render out and refile names, and all of these video elements so that I don't have any more collisions with these video files. As I'm moving the file names around, you know, image 001 dot mp4 overwrites image 001 dot mp4 created two years later on a different SD card account format. Whatever it is, it's been a problem before I probably lost media because of that error. So to try and correct that I'm trying to come through and render everything out with an additional date name that I was able to add in Lightroom. But Lightroom kept crashing or at least would not render the video that I had trying to get out from the Lightroom catalog that I had the video stored in so it was kinda interesting. I like a lot of problems with that it did a great job with a handful of the sets of videos like the three GP, I think the MTS and mkvs I think it worked through quite well but any of these mo v files and just sits it doesn't necessarily even lag, it's just not rendering frames, it just sits there like it wasn't asked to respond the computer's processors don't kick up at all. It's not like it's trying to render a video but not or I don't know, it's just like pretends like it didn't get asked to do anything at the time. So it's all the struggle of trying to render video so I ended up dumping Lightroom because I was hoping that I could do some automatic file naming and file categorizing with Lightroom and how to do a bulk export of video under the format that I was hoping and kind of have it you know, automate some of that file naming system and export settings and stuff. I ended up switching over to handbrake because I was having such a hard time getting Lightroom to grab onto the video and do anything with it. So I've been having a great experience with the handbrake so far. And there are a lot of tools and more modern systems in handbrake that make the file naming and recompression system quite easy. We can set things as same as the source and use the file name of the source. And that's where he quite well to kind of grab a file, put it in a render queue. With new settings that are pretty automatic, where it's you know, it's kind of like a two or three-click operation to get a new video added to the queue. And so just earlier today, I added 100 dot mo v files to the queue, which I hope are set up correctly, I think there are a couple of mistakes I made in there. We'll see how they render out but I put those in the queue and I'm doing a test of it now. And that stronger computer as opposed to my laptop is burning through those video frames much faster I think it was because I was rendering out about 30 frames a second. So it's almost like real-time rendering. If you were to think of it like you know, 30 frames a second in the video. Well, 30 frames got rendered of that video and just that one second, so it's going through it much faster than I'm used to in the olden days. It's kind of fun to see who knows where it will be 10 years from now. 5:05 You can see more of my work at Billy Newman photo comm you can check out some of my photo books on Amazon. I think if you look at Billy Newman under the author's section there and see some of the photo books on film on the desert, on surrealism on camping, cool stuff over there. This image was a quick screenshot or a quick capture that we made around the campsite, near Lone Pine, California, and the Alabama hills, and it was a cool campsite. I think we stayed there for about, I don't know, four to six days or so in November and December of 2012 cool time of year to be out there. And we were fortunate I think Easter this year in Nevada, we had that rain shadow so that it was just a lot drier on the east side of California than it was on that coastal side of this year in Nevada is when we were there a few weeks before that, but a cool thing about this campsite if you guys were to bother to look it up. It matches the broom Hilda saw from Django Unchained. If you were to watch that, we found that out I think right after we camped here at the spot, then we'd watched the movie Django just a few months later. And we were like, whoa, wait a second. We had just been to that spot. that exact spot right there right where this picture was taken. I think I think there's a scene where it shows Jamie Foxx sitting over on the rock that is currently the kitchen table in this scene. But yeah, it's kind of interesting. I think the shot was set up a little differently, but it was cool to see and you're like wow, that's right where we used to be interesting when you find out a spot that you were or something else was found. And it seems like a remote kind of campsite like this, but I'm sure over the years 1000s of people have been there.

I liked doing the 360 stuff. I think back in June of 2018 we had done a bunch of podcasts about some of the 360 photography stuff that we were trying to do and some of the video stuff we were doing with the GoPro fusion at the time. And that was all cool and I liked that video a lot this time I was working with a Ricoh Theta zone. And I was going around to a few locations to try and get the photographs. Specifically, I think photographs are a lot in this circumstance, but not so many videos. But yeah, really interested the in the 360 photography stuff that I was able to, edit together and capture during that time. So it was cool. But I went to an area in, Central Oregon, that was pretty cool and went up on like a hillside to do some 360 work. And it's cool out there because you can see the topography of how the Great Basin was formed at the well I guess like during the whole era of the Pleistocene as it was for a long-standing period. Like a lake, it was just a big lake out there. And then as things started changing at the end of the Pleistocene, I think there were huge changes that ended the Great Basin stuff that ended a lot of the megafauna that was in the area. And that kind of changed the topography of the landscape over the last 10,000 years to be something much more of the high desert sagebrush Juniper tree exposed rock landscape that we see today and a lot less of the forested temperate kind of mountain climate that we have through the Cascades and part of Oregon, I'm sure it was always more dry, given the rain shatter the Cascade Mountains there. But I think that for a long period, as according to signs posted on my drives in areas where I go hiking sometimes but you know, like when you go up to someplace and it says, you know, this area so such and such time ago had these animals in it where you see like giant beavers, or you see like camels or giant sloths, I guess they added the area so there are all sorts of stuff that they had, that ended up being wiped out and 100,000 years ago, 60,000 years ago, 9:47 to, what, 1020 10,000 years ago, something like that. There are a lot of changes that happened throughout the Pleistocene, I guess during what they call the quarternary period, a period of glaciation. That the earth has been involved in for the last 100,000 or 200, maybe million years. I'm not sure it's the last couple of 100,000 years we've been going in these cycles of glaciation. So you know, we're in an ice age period. So we go into an ice age like we have ice on the Earth right now. It'll be more ice at a point and then less ice at a point. More is at a point less I said a point, I guess it's been going on for what they say somewhere around like 200,000 years, these 30,000-year periods of glaciation to nonglaciation. where like, I think we're coming, we're like on the far end of the Glacial Maximum now. So we had the, with the Glacial Maximum about like, what, 11,000 12,000 years ago? Or is that right? No, it must have been, like 15 20,000 years ago that we're at the maximum, then it started receding, I suppose. That's when we were able to know. That doesn't make sense. We had like the land bridge, like the Beringia stuff where people got over that was probably 15 to 20,000. sea levels were low or they were like 400 feet, they squared along the coastlines. They came over through the land. So that was all pretty long ago. Well, anyway, at some point, like I was there like I'm gonna figure out Wait, let me remember. Let me think back to 15,000 years ago, where was I? Yeah, I wasn't here. So I don't know what happened. But apparently, there's been some recorded evidence that I learned about, and I think it's like Montverde down in Chile. And that's a location where I think they carbon dated something to 15,000 years old, like human remains human element remains, there's, there's like a few locations here in Oregon, where they I guess have evidence of the Clovis people that sort of around like the 1112 13,000 year mark. And then there's other evidence of things that are I don't know within like it's time it's like anything from like 7500 years to 15,000 years ago seems to all kind of be in flux have a date, because there are not many, not many perfect ways to date that. And if it's a cultural artifact, like, an arrowhead, or a pot shard, or a scraper, there's some indication of how those things are going to be created or how those artifacts are going to be created and how there's are going to remain like Folsom points or Clovis points are pretty distinct from each other but they're not culturally distinct from each other. So it could be like a variation of many different tribes and languages and peoples all well unrelated to each other but related with a similar vein of technology for a few 1000 years of you know, their tool use shape was kind of similar because they're all kind of from a similar descendency but I think when you get like more than 100 miles away your language is separate over like a couple of generations. You just got to speak different languages. But man wild stuff anyway, so I don't remember where we started with this. But I was out in Eastern Oregon, exploring the Great Basin, I went up on a hillside and public land and I was doing some 360 photography work with the Ricoh zeta Oh, Ricoh Theta zone. That's what it is. And yeah, I was capturing some stuff on a hillside really beautiful areas up there where those ridges kind of drop in and out. And so it's cool when you get like up to a higher elevation, you can kind of see the pockets of where these legs and pools of water and kind of sat and rested for what seems like 13:36 I think I was saying something about recording some 360 photographs up on some public land in the high desert, in Lake County in the Great Basin area of Eastern Oregon, a beautiful spot over there. I enjoy it and yeah, it was awesome to use the Ricoh Theta zone to be capturing some images up in that area, it's cool when you're at a higher elevation. And with a 360 camera, you can kind of it provides a little bit of a different perspective, it seems silly to see wider, but when you re when you kind of replay those images, and you're able to sort of look around in the context of what's the left and to the right of you, you're kind of able to put together the context of the landscape a little better, a little faster than you could if you just had a series of individual photographs that had segments of the wider landscape captured in those cool at that higher elevation. You can kind of look down to areas that we had been hiking around earlier in the day through some of the ridges and troughs that would be over in that area. And you can look down you know it's like 500 feet down in elevation to what we thought was kind of the mountain top pass and then pass that as another maybe 1000 foot or a couple of 100-foot drop in elevation as it goes down toward The lake basin area. So all that was pretty cool. And what was also cool about it is just sort of visualizing how populated that area had been in the past, I think, you know, before the Western expansion of the United States and as 1000s of years passed by in this region of land in the northwest, it had been populated in that region specifically been populated by nomadic tribes that had been able to travel and subsist off of the wild game that was there, I think a lot of like antelope and deer, and it looks like bighorn sheep by some of their planning some kind of sheep, but it looks like that from some of their, their pictographs and petroglyphs information that they left then the dynamics of some of those populations of animals have changed in the time. Now given like modern day, I don't know, I don't know if we're gonna see a lot of sheep out there in Lake County, but there's one drawn on a rock out there. So they must have been trying to look for it. There's a lot of them in the southwest as he moved into the I think the Mohawk tribes. For him, that's more of a 3000 to 25 2000. I don't know, it's probably bad. It was 3600 years ago, sort of thing. But, 100 years ago I think it was like Captain jack over there Captain jack's stronghold for the Murdoch Indian Reservation area. That was like in the Indian Wars of the 1850s. So the last to tell them but yeah, there's some information about some of the pilot, the pilot Indians, I think the Northern piute that were in that area of Southern southeastern Oregon, Nevada, then into Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico if I kind of understood right, but I know there are some fluctuations in there. And differences in timing and stuff. But yeah, dollar, is pretty cool stuff and is awesome to get out there. It's, it's cool to get out and kind of walk around in scenarios of some public land, where we slash and access and still get out to try and do some photography stuff, even in this period where you're supposed to stay home and there's a lockdown it was, it was cool to kind of get out and try and do some exploring and some social distance conscious. I mean, that's fine with me, I don't, I don't have to be around a lot of people, it's better to do landscape wildlife photography worked while you're sort of in some type of isolation, I'm sure like a lot of hunters are kind of considering something like that to you know, hunters, fishermen, people like hiking or you know, a lot of those solo activities, it's cool that you know, this kind of this time, sort of is provided a little bit of a reset for probably a lot of people out there to have a bit more time to invest in some of the things that they'd want to, I suppose a lot of folks are probably stuck more in their local area but it's a great time too, to get to invest in some things that seem more important to you. So that's what I've been trying to do. I hope you guys are doing well. Thanks a lot for listening to this episode of The Billy Newman photo podcast.

Part 2 of our Editing Night Photos series and it is time to get technical.One of the biggest mistakes I see people making when they open Photoshop actually happens before they even get to the program. It's how we actually think about Photoshop and what it can do for our images. Photoshop is not actually used to “fix” our images. And especially as night photographers where there is not a lot of room for recovery of images when there is so little light available to record in the first place.No, instead Photoshop is a tool like any other that we use to help create our images. And when we are talking specifically night photography Photoshop is the tool that lets us break free from editing only single images in Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw.And like anything, we will do our best work in Photoshop when we understand the whole system. If you want to be able to create beautiful images using Photoshop then you need to have the right source material - ie. create the right photos.Today's episode is a bigger picture look at when do we start using Photoshop (vs just LR or ACR) and then more granular at the specific shooting techniques and how those work inside the Photoshop editing process.If you want to learn more about all of this it will be covered in my 2-part free training series coming up November 1st and 3rd.

HT1329 - Learning Never Stops This week, Adobe updated Photoshop and Lightroom with some major new features. And just when I was feeling comfortable with my workflow and muscle memory, I have new techniques to learn and old habits to reconsider/update.
LW1321 - More on the Idealized World Photography's greatest strength is that it can show us what is. There is a truthfulness inherent in photography - - or at least as objective as is possible. Have you noticed how much of today's technology is targeted at idealizing the world rather than revealing it? Photoshop and Lightroom are all about "improving" the subject, be it landscapes or people. Your model has a pimple? No problem. Your landscape is hazy? No problem. What ever happened to showing us what is rather than what we'd like it to be? You might also be interested in. . . Every Picture Is a Compromise, a series at www.brooksjensenarts.com. and... "How to" tutorials and camera reviews are everywhere on YouTube, but if you're interested in photography and the creative life, you need to know about the incredible resources you can access as a member of LensWork Online. LensWork Online includes hundreds of hours of audio, video, and downloadable content - literally terabytes of content, content, and more content. All 1200+ of Brooks Jensen's podcasts, the complete Here's a Thought... video library, Looking at Images commentaries, Creative Labs and new channels for 2020 including Finding the Picture and Those Who Inspire Me (and Why).

HT1326 - Gather or Express Photography's greatest strength is that it can show us what is. There is a truthfulness inherent in photography - - or at least as objective as is possible.

A few episodes ago I talked about masking in Lightroom, which is one of my favorite new features in the program. It wasn't a deep dive into masking, but a demonstration of how I use masks in Lightroom to add depth to my concert photography using what I call "Dodge & Burn +". It's a technique that's easy to do, and can be used on any genre of photography. During that show I mentioned that, for most jobs, I can usually finish all of my edits in Lightroom now, but that on occasion I may still finish an image in Photoshop. There are a number of reasons I might still end up in Photoshop. I might have a shot I want in my portfolio, and I just want to add som POP to it. I may have a critical client image that needs more complex edits, frequency separation, advanced masking or layers, or I might need tools that are either better in Photoshop, or that only exist there. With all of the options available in Photoshop, there are two specific techniques that, if I end up there, I will almost always try. These techniques don't always work, and in fact there are times they make the image worse, but my success ratio with these techniques is so high that will always at least try them. The steps I describe in this show will require Adobe's Photoshop, which has a trial version available here, and the Nik Collection from DxO, which also has a trial version. From the Nik set of plugins I use Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro often. Silver Efex Pro is a great BW conversion tool, but today we will use it differently, and I have to thank the amazing Alan Hess for this technique. Join me as I walk through how I use two of my favorite ways to finish an image in Photoshop, with the help of Nik's Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro, on this Behind the Shot.

Hoy vamos a hablar de la tableta gráfica para fotografía, una herramienta que muchos fotógrafos y retocadores usan en su día a día mejorando su flujo de trabajo en postproducción. Pero es necesario usar en todos los casos estas tabletas gráficas. Y como imaginaras, las tabletas gráficas son ideales para la edición y retoque fotográfico. Y por eso te recuerdo que en la academia de cursos de fotografía tienes decenas de cursos de Photoshop, capture one y otros programas de edición. ¿Qué es una tableta gráfica? Básicamente, una tableta gráfica es un lápiz óptico que sustituye al ratón y una tableta, que hace la función de bloc, que capta el movimiento y la presión de este lapicero. Realmente las tabletas gráficas tienen su origen en los ilustradores digitales, pero, como compartimos algunos programas como Photoshop, ha hecho que ambas ámbitos se unan en el uso de tabletas gráficas para trabajar. Ventajas de usar una tableta gráfica Lo que supone utilizar una tableta gráfica es ganar en precisión y rapidez en tu trabajo de retoque y edición fotográfica. Pero esto no quiere decir que sea imprescindible usar siempre tabletas gráficas. Como siempre, depende del tipo de fotografía hagas y sobre todo del tiempo que pases retocando tus fotografías. Si eres retocador o fotógrafo/a, pero qué gran parte de tu flujo de trabajo, sea usar Photoshop o programas similares, entonces usar esta herramienta te hará trabajar mejor y mejorar tu velocidad de retoque. Pero si solo usar reveladores para el postprocesado fotográfico, por ejemplo Lightroom. Seguramente no tengas ninguna ventaja, incluso puede contraproducente. Tipos de tabletas gráficas para fotografía Si necesitas una tableta gráfica para fotografía, seguro que te pierdes ante la enorme variedad de productos y precios disponibles. Por eso lo primero es dividirlas en dos grandes grupos. Las tabletas gráficas con pantalla y sin pantalla. Con las tabletas sin pantalla, aparte de ahorrarte dinero, trabajar de manera similar al ratón, es decir, tú mueves el lápiz sobre la tableta pero siempre mirando el monitor de tu ordenador. En cambio, en las tabletas con pantalla, esta será una pantalla auxiliar, pero clave es que verás lo que haces mientras miras a la tableta. ¿Cuál elegir? Pues aquí también depende de la cantidad de horas que dediques al retoque y el nivel de retoque que hagas. Si solo retocas algunas fotografías en photoshop, pero no es tu principal factor diferencial, deberás adquirir una tableta gráfica sin pantalla. Pero si vas más allá o eres retocador/a sin duda una tableta gráfica con pantalla es ideal, ya que podrás sacarle todo el partido. Precios de tabletas gráficas para fotógrafos El precio de las tabletas gráficas depende principalmente de dos factores: el tamaño y si tiene pantalla. Pero también depende de la marca. Las tres principales son Wacom, X-pen e Huion. La más cara es Wacom porque es la marca más antigua y conocida, mientras que X-pen y Huion tiene una calidad precio imbatible. Tabletas gráficas recomendadas Si tan solo quieres probar, si te puedes adaptar o si puedes sacarle rendimiento a implementar estas tabletas gráficas para tus fotografías, lo ideal es comprar alguna de las baratas (menos de 50€): Huion HS64 XP-pen Star G640 Si tienes claro que quieres usarlas ya podrías gastarte un poco más y adquirir una buena tableta gráfica sin pantalla (menos de 100€): Wacom Intuos XP-Pen Deco Huion Inspiroy Q11KV2 Y si quieres adquirir lo mejor que puedes comprar, orientado, para fotografía y adquirir una tableta gráfica con pantalla de calidad, las que te recomendamos son: Wacom Cintiq pro16XP-Pen Artist Pro 16TPHuion Kamvas Pro 24 4K Gracias por suscribirte a los cursos, por tus valoraciones en Apple Podcasts, comentarios y me gusta en Ivoox, por escucharnos y seguirnos en Spotify. Un saludo y hasta el próximo lunes a las 07:00.
