Today Chris will tackle the tough questions. Terry wonders about photography in science and Chris elaborates on a few techniques and wonders how it relates to the arts. And Kevin wonders about the ethics of photography at a women’s protest march.
James wants a camera that can shoot movie-like quality. Chris explains how to evaluate cameras and that the movie-like qualities of movies are not necessarily only due to the cameras. The soft factors include anything from lighting, color correction, editing, pacing, music, and last but not least: story. Thomas is a self-confessed can’t-delete-photos-aholic and Chris takes a brief dive into tackling that problem from two different directions: making sure to not shoot as much (easier said than done) and a way to tame the deluge of photos that’s on our hard drive. Finally a question about bouncing flash and how to optimize on the settings for this type of photography.
Ravsitar brings us a new slack photo challenge (if you’re not on the slack, get on board here), Simone wonders about vignetting caused by leaf shutters and how that is different from focal plane shutters, T.J. wants to exercise his photo skills indoors during the dark winter season in Minneapolis and Mark asks about switching photo editors, if Capture One Pro is an alternative to Lightroom. This prompts Chris to talk about Lightroom, Capture One Pro and Serif’s Affinity and their plans for entering the digital asset management (DAM) market
