Recently I found out that a friend of mine is making all kinds of handmade accessories for women. Apparently this type of jewellery falls under the category of frivolite-tatting made stuff, which to be honest I had no idea about, up until now.

Although she is quite creative and already had photos of her creations to illustrate them, she asked me to create a series of product shots, to see if they could better serve and promote her work.

The bracelet shot, with two light sources, is one of the resulting images.



For more information and getting in contact, regarding these, you can check her profile pages, below:

Google Photos has been my go to solution for some time now. Free storage, easy sharing and fast browsing are just some of the features which make it stand out from the crowd.

Now, the AI powered app, becomes even better with the addition of comments for photos in shared albums.

Do you use Photos? What do you think of the latest update?




#photography #google #photos #app #update #cloud #backup

Commenting and smart suggestions in shared albums

Shared albums have always been easy to use. Send an album link to anyone, let them add photos, and save photos to your library in a tap.

Now, shared albums are getting smarter and more social.

Starting today, people who join the album can add comments to photos and the album itself. So you can give your friend’s photo of her lunch and your mom’s photos of the cat the response it deserves, without leaving the app.

Plus, to make it easier to add your own photos to a received shared album, you’ll now see smart suggestions for the right photos to add. No more searching for photos from last weekend’s birthday party and picking out the perfect ones – now you can add your best photos from the event in one tap.

These features are rolling out now on Android, iOS, and web.

Make sure you have the latest Google Photos update for Android (v1.20) and iOS (v1.10).___Google Photos has been my go to solution for some time now. Free storage, easy sharing and fast browsing are just some of the features which make it stand out from the crowd.

Should you give all the photos from a shoot?

I have been having this discussion from time to time and my opinion has always been no.

The article expresses that same point of view and justifies the decision for doing so.

Do you provide all the unedited photos from a shoot? What is your take on the matter?

"Donald "Don" McCullin, CBE Hon FRPS is a British photojournalist, particularly recognized for his war photography… "


The personal story of the photographer is well beyond interesting. With assignments to almost every destination on earth, plagued with pain, cruelty and war in the past decades, he narrates and describes what felt to be there and what motivated him.

The images accompanying the narration are shocking, captivating and truly some of the best you have seen. They make you pause and think and ultimately that is the goal of photography as a whole. Beautiful compositions, encompassing strong emotions, suffering and, as the photographer puts it, insanity.

From both, a humanitarian and photographic perspective, this makes you feel you have gained way too much for just 90 minutes of your time.

Lightroom could be wasting valuable disk space

Another day, another Lightroom bug. And an old one this is.

I discovered this by pure chance the other day. It looks like there is a bug in Lightroom which ignores the compression settings the user has set in the external editing preferences and sends the files uncompressed to photoshop.

What that means is that if you are sending your files as TIF to photoshop, you could be wasting from small to huge amounts of disk space, depending on the image, layers, etc.

The bug has been known for several years now, but unfortunately, no action has been taken so far.

If you are affected by this, a workaround is before closing the image in Photoshop, to select "Save As", instead of "Save", and apply the appropriate compression settings in the dialog box. The image will be saved and visible in... more »

+Sean Bagshaw is a well known landscape photographer. 

His images are beautiful and inspiring and if this genre is a favourite of yours, you should definitely consider following his work. 

"Lineage"
Moai statues at Ahu Tongariki on Easter Island, back lit by the full moon on March 22, my birthday! I couldn't imagine a better way to celebrate. Visiting this remote South Pacific island was a dream. Learning about the history and culture of the Island was fascinating in a way only made possible by being there. The statues were a representation of the ancient ancestors and believed to be symbols of authority and power, both religious and political. The moai statues face away from the ocean and towards the villages as if to watch over the people. Photographing them in moonlight is a major life memory.

To create this photo I placed myself in the shadow of one of the tallest moai to minimize flare and contrast from the moon. I took a 4 minute long exposure, allowing the fast moving clouds coming off the ocean streak across the sky. Then I took a shorter, brighter exposure at a higher ISO while no clouds blocked the moon to capture the shadows in the foreground and detail in the statues. In the second exposure the moon had also appeared on the edge of the statue creating the moon-star. The two exposures were painstakingly blended using various masking techniques in Photoshop. Further adjustments were made for clarity and tonal balance. The final step was to convert the color image to black and white using Silver Effects Pro.

Canon 5DsR, 33mm. One exposure at 4 minutes, f/14, ISO 100 and one exposure at 25 seconds, f/4.5, ISO 800.___+Sean Bagshaw is a well known landscape photographer.

Looks like the Google+ engines are going full throttle again.

After a long time of cruising on auto pilot, the network revamping which began a few months ago, seems to be heading forward, strong as ever.

Can't wait to see what comes up next!

Introducing Google+ Create

Today we are launching Google+ Create (g.co/PlusCreate), a unique program that gives amazing content creators the recognition and audience they deserve.

When we introduced Google+ Collections last May, we were blown away by the amazing things people began sharing, from the beautiful (goo.gl/ryi0jv) to the breathtaking (goo.gl/n0KpR6), from the profound (goo.gl/XfBB0y) to the playful (goo.gl/zdDVsf), from the whimsical (goo.gl/zLOMgy) to the wonderfully eclectic (goo.gl/kgtI38).

And people on Google+ agree. Since launching the redesigned Google+ in November, Collection follows have more than doubled.

But these Collections don’t create themselves. Behind them are fascinating individuals who bring their flair, imagination and craft to engage and inspire others. There are food alchemists like +maria nasir in Lahore, Pakistan, writers and woodturners like +Ellie Kennard and +Steven Kennard in Nova Scotia, and daredevil acrobats like +Randy T on a mountain top near you.

We want to celebrate these inspiring creators and amplify their unique voices. Google+ Create members get a verified profile, early access to new product features, a private channel with the Google+ team, and special opportunities to build their audiences.

Visit g.co/PlusCreate to meet some of our members, learn about the benefits, and apply to join if you’re interested. Or just immerse yourself in the diversity of Collections already on Google+ (g.co/Collections).___Looks like the Google+ engines are going full throttle again.

This app keeps getting better by the minute!

Google Photos update – New ways to free up space

Running out of space on your phone is the worst. You’re stuck constantly deleting apps, music, and pictures, just to make room for one more photo or video.

Today, we’re making it easy to free up space on your phone, anytime you need. Just tap “Free up space” in Settings, and Google Photos will remove device copies of your backed up photos and videos.

Or Google Photos can keep track of your phone’s storage space for you. Get notified when your phone is running low on space, and easily remove the device copies of backed up photos older than 30 days right from the Assistant.

All your photos and videos will still be accessible when you’re connected, both in the app and on the web at photos.google.com.

So take more photos and videos. And stop worrying about filling up your phone in the process.

This update is rolling out now on Android and coming soon to iOS.

Check for the update (v1.9) in the Play Store: goo.gl/55OnIr___This app keeps getting better by the minute!

I could really use this advice and I am certain others could too. And you know what? It doesn't apply just to photography or arts in general.

I believe it applies to life as a whole. Be creative. It is so much more fun than being perfect!

Snapseed Now Supports Raw Files

Very interesting news today from +John Nack. It appears that the brilliant minds at Google are expanding +Snapseed's abilities even further!

I am really looking forward to playing with this one and the raw files that I can now capture with my new Samsung S6 smart phone. I predict that the quality of our mobile images is going to skyrocket over the next couple of years!___This is great news!!!

Tournée du Chat Noir

poster by  Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen

I have had a mug with this printed on it for some time now and always wondered what it was about. 

Turns out, this poster has some history behind it, as it was created to advertise an iconic French cabaret, Le chat noir, more than a century ago. 

Anyway, I liked it before I knew it was cool!

An interesting opinion on image composition and the rules we try to apply to make it work.

I consider myself a person who loves having mathematical approaches which guarantee the best and exact solution always, to a variety of dilemmas. What is the best camera and what is the best crop/framing for a photo fall under the same category for me, where numbers try to solve the problem for you.

Unfortunately, I found out, that it was not always easy to apply the rules to my photos and get the look that I wanted to. The rules, were never exact. Photography is not an exact art.

I am not saying not to know the rules. Just that the next time you see an article with overlays over photos, showing how it absolutely follows a composition rule, read it with a slight smile.

Most likely, it won't happen. And the good thing is, it doesn't have to. What has to happen is... more »

I have never liked the phrase “rules of composition.” To me, it seems too formal, suggesting that such a complex topic as composition can be boiled down to a few quick tips.

Note to self.

Avoid using AI Servo focus mode in low light. Your soft images felt like a pretty hard kick in the behind...

No need to be discreet about this one.

This stupid ignorant mother fucker should pay for his actions.

I hope that a way to make him face the justice system will be found.

Volunteers wanted

If you are are running windows and willing to give darktable a test drive, now is your chance.

+Partha Bagchi​​ is trying to bring the free raw converter to windows users and could really use some feedback. So, if you are remotely interested in photography or eager to beta/alpha test a release, step forward.

Darktable 1.6.7 64 bit for Windows

I tried to leave a comment on the Darktable blog. Unfortunately, it's rejected silently.

Just wanted to mention that I've been working on this and now I have built Darktable 64 bit for Windows. It's still a proof of concept rather than a releasable product.

There are some issues that I need to discuss with the developers which I will do when the mailing list is up and running.

Thanks,
