The Flixel Walk Seoul

By on Apr 6, 2018 in Getting the Shot, Korea, Photography, Theory Thursday | 0 comments

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of hosting the first international Flixel Walk. This is essentially a photowalk with the intent of making cinemagraphs using Flixel’s cinemagraph pro. The timing for this event could not have been better as it is spring now in Korea and the beautiful cherry blossoms were out in full force. The location that I chose for this event was the beautiful Deoksugung Palace in central Seoul. This palace is right across the street from the Seoul City Hall. In my opinion this was a great location and one that I typically find myself in when I head up to Seoul. I felt that the palace also fit well with the theme of “old and new” really well. Like most weekends in Seoul, there was a large protest going on. Sadly, this particular protest occurred directly in front of the palace gates. It was a minor set back with some amusing instances. Most of the...

Using Lightroom CC and Backup Your Photos Without a Computer

By on Feb 20, 2018 in Reviews | 0 comments

I am in the last week of a project taking place in Seoul and in Gangneung, here in South Korea. While I normally have enough time in most projects to return to my home and edit my photos on my iMac, this particular project has a tight turn around time and is also far from my home. Over the last few weeks, I have been testing out different ways to backup and edit my photos on the road. The main issue that I had was that my laptop is way too old to handle this kind of work and until I get a replacement, I had to find a solution.   Backup For backup in the field, there are many options. For years I used a NEXTO portable hard drive (one of the first generations) but the prices now are insane. I needed a cheaper solution. So I reached out to Dylan Goldby and asked him for some ideas. Surprisingly he gets asked this question a lot and sent me this article which contained a perfect...

5 Things Photographers Should Know about the PyeongChang Winter Olympics 2018

By on Feb 19, 2018 in Korea, Photography, Where to Shoot | 0 comments

I got the idea for this post as I sat in the lobby of the Seamarq Hotel in Gangneung, South Korea. With most of my editing done, I just started to people watch and listen in on people’s reactions to my second home. I was shocked at how little people knew about Korea. This country is one of the hidden gems of Asia and it is often overlooked by the vast majority of travel and landscape photographers. With that being said, there are a ton of people coming to view and photograph the games. Here are a few things that you should know. 1. It’s Out in the Country One of the challenges of these games are the locations of the events. During the ’88 Olympics the bulk of the games were in Seoul. This made it a lot easier to reach the sites and get around. Now, you have to take in the fact that Seoul is not the city that it was in 1988 and these games are the winter games.  Having...

Using Workspaces in Luminar 2018

By on Jan 21, 2018 in Photography, Technique Tuesday, Tutorials | 0 comments

One of my favourite features about Luminar are the workspaces. I also find that many people are not really too sure what to do with them. As you progress with your learning and ability using Luminar, you may become less reliant on Presets. However, with so many functions and filters inside of Luminar it maybe hard to find a good starting point for editing your images. Workspaces help by putting what you need right where you need it. Utilizing workspaces can greatly increase your workflow and make you less reliant on presets as a one-size-fits-all solution. The reason that I say this is that anytime you use a preset it may not be 100% the right fit for every image. Starting off with them may get you into the right area but often we just think that it’s “good enough” and move on.  Workspaces give you the tools but they do not apply them to the image. So you can add what...

Finding the Perfect Loop in Cinemagraph Pro

By on Jan 9, 2018 in Photography, Technique Tuesday, Tutorials | 0 comments

One of the hardest things to achieve when creating a cinemagraph is the fabled “perfect loop” which is created when you cannot define the start or end point of the movement in the cinemagraph. It is a complicated process in some cases as creating the perfect loop depends on a number of factors. Fortunately, using software like Flixel’s cinemagraph pro helps reduce some complexity quite a bit. That being said, we do have to go over a few things to get you off on the right foot. Find the Right Movement or Subject Getting the perfect loop is based largely on a repeated movement where the in and out points are similar, if not exactly the same.  Looking for this kind of movement helps you get started on the right track. Any sort of back-and-forth movement is perfect for this. Movements that have no distinct directionality are good as well. I would like to emphasise that...

Welcome 2018, Goodbye 2017

By on Jan 3, 2018 in Photography, Reviews | 0 comments

It is the evening of January 2nd as I write this and I have had a slow but productive weekend. In many ways it was reflective of the past year.  I would say that 2017 was a defining year for myself and my photography. It went by unusually fast but had its share of ups and downs. Without boring you too much, I will go through them as best that I can. At the beginning of the year, I took the blog in a new direction and focussed more on learning than I did in the past. The purpose was to give the blog a stronger focus and align it more to my learn.jasonteale.com page that is designed to actually help people learn photography and editing. I dialed in a number of ideas about the theory and business of photography as well as the travel side of things. Little did I know that 2017 was to become one of the hardest years of my photography career. At the beginning of the year, I launched a new...
