Exciting! Canon 5D Mark IV is competitive with Sony and Nikon for dynamic range, shadow recovery and ISO performance. Finally! A great preview/review by Chip Phillips.

"Territory of the Mind" - From a formative trip in the surreal desert landscapes of the American SW back in 2011 with my friend Tony Kuyper. This was taken in the late sunset twilight in the South Coyote Buttes in Northern Arizona. The light was so soft and rich and the rock colors and shapes were from a dream.
Canon 5DII, polarizer, 23mm, 30 seconds, f/16, ISO 400.

Video Tutorial: Photoshop has a new feature called Select and Mask. This new task space makes it easier to create selections and refine them so your masks can be even more precise. It works well for tricky selections, such as trees against the sky. Check out my latest video tutorial blog to learn more about how it works.
In the most recent update to CC Adobe gave the Refine Selection/Refine Mask features a big overhaul and combined them into a single new task space called Select and Mask. This new task space makes it even easier to create selections and refine them so your masks can be even more precise and will target adjustments just how you intend. It seems that the edge detection ability in this new feature has also been improved over the old Refine tool, mak...

Ever create an image file too large to save? It is becoming a common occurrence with high res cameras and pano stitching. My latest video on the Photo Cascadia blog shares some tips for working with large image documents. If you have questions or other tricks for working with large image documents please share! :-)
This video tutorial shows you how to save image files that exceed the TIFF file size limit as large document PSB files and also how to access them in Lightroom and Bridge.

What's the interest of saving a multi-layer file in Tiff than in PSD ?

I save my working files in PSD or PSB just in case I want to change something later. But before I save them to Tiff and import them into LR, I merge all layers and remove all channels I may have created.

Then I have two copies : 1psd/psb and 1 tiff

Every year since I began photography, my summer days are spent hiking on Mt Rainier looking for wildflowers. After scouting several places on the mountain this year, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite places to find wildflowers on Mt Rainier.

+Alfredo Mora it still all depends on the tones in the image. If the building is dark and the sky is light, or vice versa, then yes, this can help you separate the building from the sky. However, since Infinity Masks are still luminosity based, if the building and what is behind it have very similar tones then it will be hard to separate with any luminosity based form of selecting and another tool will be needed.
