I get so confused by color space. There are wide-gamut monitors (I use one). But can they really display a wide-gamut without working in 10-bit color space instead of the usual 8-bit color space? Only PC users who have nvidia quadro or amd fire pro GPUs have the ability to edit and view full 10-bit color (macs don't support it).

What do you guys think about these lighting results? I'm really interested in getting into off camera flash for family portraits.

looks good to me. before i got in love with natural light, I used to do off camera flash on HSS when necessary.

this was off camera flash HSS on a 26" collapsable beauty dish

Anyone do contemporary art? Went to a museum this past weekend with the kids.... not a place to take kids :-P

OK, here's a question. I'm thinking the in-camera sRGB or Adobe RGB just affects jpegs and doesn't really affect the raw file. Am I wrong on that?

I've gone back and forth on editing in sRGB vs ProPhoto and also fail to see much difference (mainly because the monitor is displaying in 8-bit color space), but just in case I do edit in ProPhoto. I have a "Flatten to sRGB" action made that I use when I'm ready to export the jpegs.

I wasnt sure of this but googled there and it does indeed seem that the in camera profile doesnt matter if you shoot raw however it does affect the cameras histogram apparently (dont know what one is best to set it to). Ive also realised that my printer company accepts either srgb, adobe rgb or prophoto but recommends srgb for the files sent for print so I think ill just keep doing what im doing. I also realised on their site that they do free test prints so im going to do that for a few images before ordering a large print of my Callinish stones milkyway photo and a couple of others that I have been meaning to print.

On another note my milkyway photo got into explore and became my most liked photo ever :)

For portrait or landscape? Portrait = vinz. Lol landscape checkout editing using luminosity mask.

Just posted this for this weeks photo challenge.

Mantis at the gate

I found this Preying Mantis at my gate this morning. It had a spider web stuck to its hind quarters which my neighbor was able to remove before taking it to his garden.

youtube's got you covered with free stuff:

Subscribe to the following YT channels: "Photos In Color", "Photoshop Training Channel", "tutvid", "Phlearn", "Blue Lightning TV Photoshop", and "f64 Academy"

If you want to pay, then Lynda.com has massive amounts of great Photoshop (and Lightroom) training for a mere $20 per month (you can quit anytime). They have a free trial, so make an account and get started with some seriously professional training that will take you from your current level to Photoshop mastery. Highly recommended.

Kelby One is decent, but I much prefer Lynda for PS training by a wide margin.

Very nice Vinz!

What are the drawbacks to using HSS besides forcing power output levels lower?

I really like the Photos in Color channel. That guy is so funny. And tutvid is superb. Full of great info as does phlearn. Great choices.

i have the godox/flashpoint XT1 R2 controllers and pair of 360ii lights ,, for canon.. liked it so much bought a controller for sony too and works very well.. do want to get one of the speedlights too as sometimes 2 x 360 is not neccassary ,, speedlight for a little fill or hair light

and/or going on vacation ,, want to get some nice quick portraits on location .. but not bringing all the big lights..

and like i said its nice that it can be used with canon or sony..

supposedly they have a m4/3 controller in the works .. would be great to have one lighting system for my sony,canon and panasonic cameras

The more I see from the DJI Mavik Pro, the more I'm getting enamored and getting major GAS for my first drone. I would love to be doing aerial photography. I wonder if there is a section here on POTN dedicated for drone users?
