Chris found a great video with a look behind the scenes of how the Canon Flash system configures and triggers flashes with nothing but light. The code is decoded and if you’re good with electronics, you now have a great way to trigger Canon flashes remotely with an infrared LED. Chris is also fascinated by a photo project about the Maori culture of New Zealand and their Ta Moko face tattoos.. and how they don’t show up in an ancient photographic process.
Responding to a question from Tom, Chris follows up on the last episode with a deep dive into the clone and healing brush tool. He explains the differences between cloning and healing, talks about ways of modifying your selection and points out some mind-boggling shortcuts that make you a pro healer.
Let’s have a quick chat about Fuji’s X-Trans sensor. Chris also looks at an exciting new channel on the TFTTF Slack and answers listener questions. Michael is interested in cataloging smartphone images and Andy wonders about the strange way Lightroom auto-selects healing spots and how it sees shadows, mid-tones and highlights.
