Mostly they will be of wildlife captured and edited using different hardware and software. Not sure yet which software i will finally settle on but its looking like Lightworks for the ease of trimming.
The hardware – Canon 5D Camera Mk II or Mk IV, Go-Pro Hero 4, iPhone 8 with DJI Mobile Stabilizer and a HD Camera Trap.
The Software – Lightworks 14.5, Premier Pro CS6, Photoshop CC 2018 and Premiere Elements 2018.
This was made from a video I shot recently using my iPhone and a spotting scope. The video was made with the free version of Lightworks. I used the free version to compare it with others I have used. The trimming of clips etc is very easy, but using text and effects has taken a bit of getting used to. As to whether I will continue to use this, well the jury is still out
I have been playing with converting to Black and White and using luminosity masking to enhance the images. I have been using Gradients map adjustment layers with additional stops and masks to enhance the conversions. Then luminosity masks created using the ADP Pro V3 panel to enhance different tonal areas.
I have recently been watching tutorials by PHLEARN at phlearn.com . The latest series was ‘How to Remove Anything in Photoshop’ as part of my continued practice at Repair and Restoration of images old and new.
To practice what I had seen I decided to clean up an image I took on a recent visit to the Walker Gallery in Liverpool. Can you spot the changes?
Monday at RSPB Leighton Moss I thought I would try digiscoping again. The main issue was the vibration even though everything was mounted firmly with a hide clamp. An issue that is all to common with wildlife photography was the Otters arrived performed and went 15min before i got to the hide.
