How to use flash gels and white balance to make dull grey skies turn blue
 
In this video, David Bergman shows you how to make a dull grey sky turn blue by using the white balance of your camera creatively and warming up the foreground with flash gels... all in camera, no Photoshop needed.

Glass Photography
 
There's a lot to learn in this video by the good guys at +The Slanted Lens: How to set up a scene with glass and water. How to trigger a splash shot so that it is repeatable. How to light such a scene (trick with translucent materials). How to photograph on a reflective surface... and more.
 
Enjoy!

How to Get a Live Web Preview in Photoshop
► Read more at [ frb.li/webpreview ]

You may put many hours into editing an image to get everything perfect in Photoshop. But once you export and upload it to the web, you may be shocked to see that the colors are all wrong, the sharpening is too strong, and it just does not look good at thumbnail size. Sounds familiar, eh?

In this video tutorial, I will show you how to get a live web preview of the images you edit in Photoshop. You can also download the tools I created to achieve that.

Comparing the distant past and the present photographically
 
Here's a great article on +PetaPixel with some very old shots from over 100 years ago of China and their present counterparts. It's amazing how things change, and this series of photographs gives you a whole different sense of time. It's almost like time travel.

The effect of lossy image compression
 
Here you see the effect that different image formats (i.e. the corresponding compression) has on your images. Jon Sneyers saved and re-opened the same image 500 times in each format and turned the results into a video.
 
Not that you would ever re-save an image 500 times, but the results show you the general effect that these formats have. E.g. JPEG pixelates your images while WepP desaturates the colors and blurs the edges.
 
...just something to keep in mind next time you save your own images.

The Pinnacle of Creativity
 
The video below just blew my mind. When I first saw +Erik Johansson's latest image, I thought "Nice Photoshop manipulation work." I had no idea that sooo much work went into it. Erik actually used 17 square meters of real mirrors for this.
 
On top of the image, the creativity and the sheer amount of work he invested in creating this Behind-the-Scenes video is striking. The video is a piece of art itself.
 
Must-Watch!

Is the Nikon D500 a High-ISO Beast? Check out these Samples!
► Read more at [ frb.li/sq8ti ]

High-ISO performance is big for me in my photography. Therefore, I was watching closely to see if any information leaks about the new D500 beyond the usual marketing talk by Nikon themselves. And sure it did....

#photography #camera #nikon #d500 #iso
Here are the first credible High-ISO samples of the upcoming Nikon D500. They sure look promising.

How to Create Lightroom Presets the Right Way
► Read more at [ http://frb.li/upvu8 ]

Lightroom's Develop presets are a great way to speed up and simplify your editing workflow. Presets let you store the develop settings you apply to one image and apply those settings to any other image with a single click. You may be used to applying presets that you acquired from someone else, but how do you create your own presets?

In this tutorial, you'll learn the basics of how to start creating Lightroom presets yourself.

High-end photography just got a whole lot better... if you have $33,000 to spend
 
When it comes to image quality, it probably does not get any better than the new Hasselblad H6D 100 megapixel medium format camera. Even if you haven't got the $33,000 to buy the body, it's interesting to watch this video to get a sense of just how good those images are.
 
...and for the mess the Karl Taylor creates in this shoot. ;)

Impressive Time Travel: Bringing the old times to life
 
This animation was created from photos that were taken over 100 years ago. And it puts you right into that time, creating the illusion that you're there walking through the streets of New York, Boston, Detroit and Washington, D.C. around 1900. Amazing!
 
The creator used 3D animation techniques to make it happen.
 
So, it's time for you to do some time traveling now! :)

How Long Will It Take to Learn Photography?
 
What in interesting question! Here are some very interesting points made about this by +Mike Browne.
 
There's so much about which we don't even know that we don't know it yet. Sounds weird? Watch the video and it will make sense.
