  1. Hey all! I've just finished a group of video tutorials designed for all levels of u/w photographers to speed up their editing workflow: -> tutorials.brentdurand.com/editing The videos (and companion articles) cover Presets, Collections and Target Collections, Watermarks and more. Are there other topics you'd like covered? Shoot me a DM if so. Thanks, and enjoy!
  2. Can we really have enough gear? Surely not, right? I thought I’d pass on details of a recent “investment” which might be of interest to WPixelers - especially to Lightroom (LR) users. This is the just updated “Loupedeck+”. Made in Finland, essentially the Loupedeck is a dedicated keyboard setup specifically for photo editing. The new “+” version can be used with other packages but it is ideal for LR having dedicated keys for Contrast, Exposure, Clarity, Blacks, Whites, Highlights etc etc etc…. you get the idea. The attached link shows the detail. https://loupedeck.com Loupedeck is about the size of a normal desktop keyboard and although made largely of plastic, it has a good, quality feel. The beauty of it is the ability to really fine tune the various settings - rather than, what I have always found to be, rather imprecise dragging of the LR sliders. This is WAY more precise and because the various dials have a very large range, you can really tweak away. Choose for example, through the Loupedeck keyboard, the Before/After setting and you can tweak away with massive ease - and great delight. As well as editing, Loupedeck provides lots of Library-type functions: colour coding, star rating, Pick/Reject, filtering, Survey, Compare, Loupe and Grid views. And then you can customise everything. Endless hours of fun! I’ve been using mine just over a week and have found it really speeds up my initial processing of images and, so far at least, makes editing a real pleasure. I don’t think it’s a replacement for a tablet - but the two together are terrific. Definitely worth a look ​(And, no, this isn't free advertising: I bought and paid full price for mine. The shipping was free though)
  3. Hi all, Has anyone had luck with On1 over lightroom for example? My main concern with buying in to the CC is that my post processing is far too sporadic - life gets in the way and I may not do any post processing for months. Therefore I'm looking at alternatives to buy something permanent. I know that adobe is/has been the market leader, and I'm well versed with Adobe products, but their move to cloud simply doesn't suit my lifestyle/use. I haven't been able to find many posts on On1 (in fact, no articles or posts) with regards to underwater photography. Does anyone have experience with this, particularly with things like: White balance Masking/alpha for separation of exposure etc. Spot removal Sharpness Watermarks And anything else generally used for UWP Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this is the best forum to post this question so if it is better suited elsewhere please let me know. I'm looking for recommendations on what post processing software to purchase. I had planned to use Photoshop and Lightroom but in light of Adobe's move to do subscription only for products 2018 and on I'm not so sure now. I don't currently own Photoshop or Lightroom (although I previously used an older version of Photoshop - 2007 or 2008 I think?) I don't plan on using cloud storage, I prefer to back up locally. Here are some options I've come up with: 1. Do subscription service choosing the non-cloud version (classic cc?) that has both photoshop and lightroom 2. Same as above except use photoshop plus a different program (like ON1) for RAW color correction, etc., (instead of lightroom) 3. Use Photoshop Elements (perhaps get an older version like 2015 edition) and use ON1 as plug in with ps15. This would avoid the Adobe subscription fee and would provide an easier version of photoshop to grasp since I am in still a beginner in regards to working with RAW files. 4.?? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
  5. Can any one offer me any wise advice on this: I've always had slight difficulties uploading images to Adobe Stock though the Publish Services often getting the message that I'm not signed in to the Creative Cloud - when I defintely am. I have usually been able to solve this by logging off from the Creative Cloud and then logging back on. I can then Publish. I updated my Lightroom Classic CC a couple of days ago to 7.3. and apart from once yesterday, I can't now seem to publish to Adobe Stock at all. I keep getting the message that I must be signed into the Creative Cloud: which I definitely am. I've tried logging off and logging on to the Creative Cloud; closing down LR and restarting it; and re-booting my iMac. Nothing, so far, has worked. Anyone got any bright ideas? Thanks!
  6. I've just taken delivery of a Nikon D500 and am trying to work out how to upload RAW files from a Lexar XQD card through a Sony XQD card reader into Lightroom Classic. Lightroom Classic (and my iMac) see the files and they appear in the LR Import module; but when I click "Import" nothing happens. I get the message "Copy and Import" in the Import LR module but the indicator never moves and no images appear. But if I download all the files into a folder on my Desktop and import them through the LR Classic Import module - no problem. So it's not a problem of LR being unable to read the D500 NEF files. And it doesn't seem to be that the iMac can't read the Sony XQD card reader or Lexar XQD card. So why can't I import files directly off the Lexar card into Lightroom? Any thoughts?
  7. Hello all tech savvy people! My MacBook Pro has been declared dead and I am trying to only use my iPad Pro 12.9 as my only device. The only bump that I have run into is the photography workflow, everything else is perfect. I shoot maybe 50-100 shoots a week, sometimes a live aboard and get back with 1000 photos so the process should be fairly streamlined if possible. Right now what I do is this: Import RAW images from SD card with SD - lightning adapter into camera roll Import from camera roll into a new LRmobile collection Cull and edit Export back to camera roll Back up to cloud service Delete all RAW images except the ones I ended up processing Back up RAW files It is the end bit I am having a hard time with. I want to save the RAW files of my keepers but can not figure out a smooth way. Anyone has any ideas? Also any suggestions on external drives (WiFi I guess) that work well with iOS? Any help is much appreaciated Lars W Fiji
  8. Hi, I'm a beginner and want to get into photography. Most of my underwater shots were shot JPEG, but I have recently upgraded my camera and can't wait to use it and shoot RAW.. Is it necessary to have BOTH lightroom and photoshop. I have photoshop and have been trying to learn it which will take me a while... do people then normally export to photoshop?? Should I splurge and purchase that too when the time comes? Any thoughts/preferences? Thanks! Also what about video? I have adobe premiere elements which I like a lot but do people do color corrections before piecing together videos??
  9. New blog article: Correcting Lens Distortion in Underwater Photos Fisheye lenses are generally the preferred wide angle lens underwater due to their close focusing ability, sharp corners and wide field of view. Divers can get very close to their subjects, filling the frame, and eliminating water which makes their photos lack sharpness, color and definition. But there is a drawback to fisheye lenses; when shooting the straight lines, commonly of a pier or wreck, models or other similar subjects - optical distortion is introduced. It's easy to correct in Lightroom with most lenses, and micro four-thirds lenses have some base correction built in, but it's usually not enough. For them a quick trip to Photoshop does the trick. This new blog article shows you how to correct these problems in Lightroom and or Photoshop.
  10. According to Lightroom Killer Tips (on 16 June), Adobe are releasing updates to Lightroom CC and Lightroom Mobile - but not (not) LR6. The LR Mobile changes allow more editing; while the LR CC adds, amongst other things, a new feature called Dehaze (or add haze) Effect which, Killer Tips, describes as "pretty darn slick..... and for anyone who shoots u/w photography or at an aquarium". Apparently it cuts through haze and doesn't just add contrast. The Mobile version has already appeared through the usual App Store updates. I've not yet received the CC update.
  11. For my fellow Nikon D810 shooters who recently updated their Lightroom and/or Camera Raw apps, you may be noticing that your images appear a bit flat upon import. That is because Lightroom 6.1 and Camera Raw 9.1 ignore the Adobe Standard Color Profile from Nikon D810 raw images. Instead, they default to the next available profile in the Camera Profile pop-up menu which is Camera Flat, so your images display with unexpected color. Good news though ... below is the workaround until it's fixed. I just did this on my Mac, and after restarting LR, all is well. In addition, when I import new images into my LR library, they default to the Adobe Standard Color Profile. Nice. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-6-1-ignores-the-nikon-d810-adobe-standard-color-profil.html
  12. Hey guys Adobe just released the new Lightroom, "Lightroom CC". https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/photoshop-lightroom.html New features include ADR and Panoramas, improvements to the Web and Slideshow modules (yeah!)

  14. Hello all, New to Wetpixel but have been diving 20 years, a few of them with a little Olympus point and shoot and recently purchased an Olympus OMD E-M5 in Nauticam Housing. Loving the camera and shooting RAW, just find that my current laptop is severely slow when it comes to editing RAW files with the Olympus software. Would like to start working with Lightroom and know my current system will be painfully slow... There isn't much incentive to get creative and explore the possibilities offered by RAW images if my computer is constantly bogged down. Yes, I know I can upgrade the RAM etc. on my current laptop but want a system that I can grow into, as opposed to a band-aid patch to just get by for today... Hopefully someone on this forum has upgraded their system recently, or could suggest minimum requirements to ensure that I can efficiently edit my photos AND grow my skills, possibly expanding into Photoshop etc. When editing takes way more time than actually taking the pictures the files will pile up, and I will never get around to dealing with them. I am embarrassed to admit that other than a first cull I still haven't sorted and edited my MANY pictures from a trip to Kenya in February / March. If I don’t streamline the editing process my pictures will just end up sitting in digital purgatory somewhere on a hard drive :-( Looking for something portable that I can take to work with me, as well as on vacation. That being said, it doesn’t have to be the smallest, lightest, latest and greatest thing out there. As I live on an island and commute by water taxi something with some durability would be a bonus. In addition to photo editing I will be using the laptop for basic MS Office functions such as Word, Excel, Project, as well as playing music, watching movies etc. I am a PC user but would consider Macbooks if the cost / benefit can be justified. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance for your input. Regards, Adam Taylor
  15. I've just been playing with Magic Filters on my S95 but come across a strange problem (im sure its not filter related). Taking a photo, ambient light, manually white balanced, shooting in RAW+JPG mode. The JPG has much more red and less colour cast substantially than the RAW file. BUT when i load into LR5.2 or CS6 RAW editor it initially displays as the jpg (as its reading the embedded preview) but once its rendered properly the colour goes substantially green or blue. I'm unable to process the RAW to look anything like the JPG - the white balance tint is already at the max of 150 and the image is still very green or blue. As the slider appears maxed out already i cant remove this. The result is a JPG off the camera looks fine (if i load this into LR or PS i can do a lot of editing the colours so plenty of room to spare) but a RAW file that appears maxed out. Example below (crap picture due to low light and algae but it gets the point across):- The first is the JPG straight off the camera (sliders on LR are neutral/middle FWIW) and the second is the same RAW file which comes with the tint at +150 maxed out already so no further correction possible. Any idea what/how i can sort this problem out? Its odd i have a lot more potential for JPG editing than i do RAW or is it likely to be an ACR bug in handling the S95 files? FWIW i've tried using DPP and the RAW file displays properly and can be white balanced adjusted in there, it just seems to be adobe RAW handling thats different. For anyone interested in playing themselves i've uploaded the original right off the camera JPG and RAW files here:- Index of /files/2013/wb/originals I know the photo etc is technically useless - it was grabbed on a guided dive purely to prove the point above with no attempt at getting settings or anything correct. WB was set manually with a slate at the same angle/depth a few seconds previously. Depth roughly 17m in fairly dark green water.
  16. I have extra copies of InDesign CS 6 for Mac and Lightoom 4. This particular InDesign CS 6 for Mac is supposed to be distributed in Asia/Pacific but this has no bearing on the user's registration or use of the software. Neither of these have been opened or used in any way. If interested, make me an offer via PM.

Bonnie seems to have the perfect formula mix of having fun as well as serious underwater photography instruction for those wanting to improve their uw images. I had just bought a new housing for my digital camera and Bonnie patiently answered my numerous questions on the new rig. She also shared her vast knowledge freely with the participants. I plan on doing future UW Photography Workshops with Bonnie." Ellen - Portland, Oregon "Bonnie is a great teacher. She's very patient and knows her stuff. Everyone came away with great new tools for photography. I especially liked her Photoshop classes." Andrea - Laguna Niguel, California "We had a marvelous time at Scuba Club Cozumel with Bonnie last February. I can't wait to go again! She has great tips for getting the best presentation from my underwater photos. Besides, it's PARTY TIME whenever Bonnie is around, ha!" Helena - Mammoth Lakes, California "Just when the vacation began to wear off and I started to get back into the swing of reality I received a DVD in the mail from Bonnie. It was a collection of photos from our workshop trip. It brought tears t0 my eyes. Some were tears of laughter, others were from the great memories of all the new friends I made while on board the Solmar V. Who knew learning could be so much fun?" Marj - San Jose Trip report from a previous Underwater Photography Workshop at Scuba Club Cozumel
