Now when people buy the APPS they often wonder how to install the plugins in Photoshop and Lightroom, while in fact it's very simple.
You just run the APP the first time and it will ask you if it needs to install the plugin, just press YES and after that restart lightroom or Photoshop and there are the plugins.
By the way if you surf here : http://www.frankdoorhof.com/site/shop-videos-etc/macphun-software/ and use the code frankd you get a 5% discount on all your purchases and you support my work :D
Don't buy the versions in APP store from Apple because those are not the pro versions, so you will have limited functionality and no plugins.
In de workshop glamour is er altijd veel aandacht voor de meer "spannende" verlichtingen zoals strijklicht maar dit keer gaan we een stap verder met :
Selectief licht, continue verlichting, werken in een kleine ruimte met trap, sfeer bouwen dmv kleine DIY aanpassingen, oude lenzen voor speciale looks, coachen van het model bij gebruik van props zoals stoelen, trappen etc, gebruik van gekleurd licht.
Dit is een volledig nieuwe workshop binnen glamour met nieuwe technieken en tips.
Kosten : 199.00 inclusief BTW pp.
Tijdsduur : 10:00-15:30
Locatie : Emmeloord
Volledig op maat dmv QA aan het begin.

1. the right laptop
make sure you choose a laptop that is durable and make sure you use a protective case. My laptop is often used in locations where it's easy to scratch and I always use cases on the top and bottom, these cases retail for 25-50 euros and really make sure the laptop stays brand new.
A good brand is for example Specks.
As my laptop I'm now back at the MacBookPro 15", the 13" was great but for me a bit too slow when working with loads of larger files, also the extra screen size is very nice.
has a huge selection of kit that is awesome for tethering, there are other solutions but often they are not interchangeable, with Tethertools you know everything fits together and it's light to travel with.
Make sure that you ALWAYS use a Jerkstopper when shooting tethered, and the Orange cables simply rock because they are very visible and that means a lot less people step on them.
in the studio we use an AppleTV connected to a large screen TV to show the images to our clients and models, the big advantage of the AppleTV is that it functions seamlessly under Mac and you can actually mirror one screen in the screens resolution, which will not work when you use the HDMI output.
Thanks to the AppleTV we can also simply move the monitor setup around the studio and only change power outlet.
4. Capture One
Loads of people ask me "which software to use" and in my opinion there is only one solution that works flawless and FAST and that's Capture One.
It's also an awesome raw developer and has some great extra features like:
Focus overlay : everything that is green is in focus
Overlay : overlay a cover and see the end result
Tinting presets : love a certain look? create it in RAW and use it
New shots with xxx : every shot that comes in has the look you want
Layers : if you need some editing fast use the layers in C1.
Seamless intergration with Ps : now there is a roundtrip to Ps
Many cameras supported : Sony, Canon, Nikon, MF etc. etc. loads of cameras are supported
And much much more.
But most of all, when you loose connection you simply reconnect and capture One will continue, and of course the loupe function is almost instant where Lightroom often takes a long time to zoom in.
5. Capture Pilot
Part of Capture One is capture pilot.
Run the app on your mobile device and you can see the images coming in on your device (or anywhere in the world if you grant the client access).
We sometimes use this with workshops on location so people don't have to look at my laptop screen.
A nice new device I found which folds up very small and when extended turns into a "house" for your laptop where it's shielded from water and sunlight, very cool and very affordable.
7. Common sense
Don't we need this for everything....
Always realize that you are connected to your laptop/computer, so don't walk 10mtrs if you have 7mtrs of cables, don't run cables over a busy road, and always clean your contacts when you shot outside.
When you're shooting on a beach make sure there are no open holes on your laptop, use some gaffers tape to tape them shut, sand will creep into everything and is often very hard to get out.
Tethering is an awesome way to show your images to your clients and it works flawlessly in most workflows, some people will find the whole setup too much work and shoot on the card, but I'm 100% serious when I tell you that in the end you are probably faster when shooting tethered for the simple reason you immediately know when you "nailed" the shot and you can check very easily for focus etc.

Books have been written about posing, so called posing guides... and although they might work for a base I always believe it's better to do something really creative when you are working with your models.
Often it's not that there is a 123 solution that always works, every model is different and has different poses that work for him/her so try to approach each shoot with that in mind.
For example in this shot with Marie we choose for a pose not every model can pull off, and although it looked liked the posed very relaxed I can tell you that this is literally a split second shot, so time it correctly. but when you get it "right" you can end up with some pretty interesting results.
