An embrace goes out to all.
Still at home, thinking, worrying, hoping….and still trying to learn stuff during this extended, unforeseen break from the road, which has been my life, by and large, for many years. I don’t think I’ve been off an airplane this long since my 20’s. But, the personal blessing that has accrued to me is actually to be home, seeing Annie, every day.
So, still devoting time to learning Capture One. A while back, as I began this journey, we scheduled a webinar, and that goes forward tomorrow. I’ll be teaching (and continuing to learn!) with one of the best in the business, David Grover. If interested to join us, here is where you reserve a spot: Webinar Link. We begin at 12:00pm, EDT and will run for about an hour. David’s home base is the UK, and Capture One HQ is in Denmark. So, it will be an event that sprawls over a few time zones. Running concurrently is our long planned Instagram takeover of the Capture One Instagram feed. Very honored, and apologies, in terms of altering the schedule. We postponed it a bit from its original start.
With David’s guidance, I’ll be working through some of the copious tool box that is Capture One. We had been using Capture One as a tethering program for a long while, but now, I’m looking forward to getting back in the field, shooting into the program, selecting and finishing the files without ever accessing another application. Seamless. I have a lot to learn, as post-production has not necessarily been comfortable territory for me, but here we go. Excited as I learn new stuff, and happy with results I am getting.
In the webinar, I’ll be taking NEFs from the raw stage to a finished stage, using material I just shot, as well as a shot or so from my very early days of digital. And with the ever knowledgeable David at the helm, this will be a guided tour of possibilities. I’ll be covering the idea of taking a good capture in camera, and enhancing and improving it, without losing the original sense of intent. David will offer a couple notes on the new Capture One for Nikon, and how that could be a cost savings to those who shoot only Nikon cameras.
Looking forward to working some files, with a whole bunch of folks tuning in! Gulp!!! :-)))
