YouTube

I have started adding the few videos I make to a YouTube Channel.

These can be seen here

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.

Experiments in Black and White

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.

Bootstrap 4 and Backlight Pangolin

Both my main Photography website and my Nature and Wildlife website have  now been re-configured to use Bootstrap 4 (beta3) and Backlight Pangolin for image galleries See theturninggate.net

I have also subtly changed the design of my Photography website to distinguish it from my Nature and Wildlife site. Both have been given a new colour scheme especially the image galleries.
