Drone Photos Edited With AI

By on Apr 15, 2019 in Photography | 0 comments

Let’s face it, there are just some angles that you can’t get while standing on the ground. Drones now enable us to get to new places without hiking up mountains or sneaking onto rooftops. One of the issues that I have encountered recently is that editing programs like Lightroom, have yet to update with lens corrections for many drones. Meaning that they have a few but even my mavic air, which has been on the market for over a year now is yet to be included. With this in mind, Skylum has recently introduced AirMagic. This program is similar in many ways to Photo Lemur but is specifically designed for drone photography. I believe that it is one of the only editors out there specifically designed for drones. My Workflow AirMagic can be used as a plugin or as a stand-alone application. When you export or drag a photo on the the AirMagic dialog window, the application will kick...

Clean Your Gear!!

By on Mar 22, 2019 in Photography, Tutorials | 0 comments

Full Disclosure: I am terrible at cleaning my camera. I abuse my camera and I shouldn’t. However, I recently got really sick of removing the dust spots from my images in Lightroom. I also was too lazy to take my camera to the service centre to have it cleaned. Like any photographer, I have all the tools that come with any new camera purchase. You know what I am talking about. We all have the cleaning cloths, the blowers, the brushes, the blower-brush combo, the wipes, and the tissues. However, the first major issue what that I never used them unless it was really nasty. The other ws the fact that I can’t use any of these to clean my sensor. Equipment The LensPen I know that this may seem like an unnecessary investment because a t-shirt, blower or cleaning cloth “does the same” however, these pens actually do the job quite well. This is the set that I picked up...

Flying a Drone in South Korea

By on Mar 19, 2019 in Photography | 0 comments

If you are living or traveling to South Korea, here are some rules and advice that you should know before launching your drone. This advice not only comes from the actual websites but from my own personal experience as well. Often you are going to find sites that have just copied and pasted the general drone rules for Korea and only reflect on part of the experience. Korea has accepted drone use and actually many people quite enjoy using drones as a hobby. However, this is still a country with many military sites, competitive companies, and high-level government facilities scattered across the country. It is best to understand not only the rules, regulations, and laws, but the acceptable practices as well. Licences and Permission At the time of this writing, you do not need a license to fly a drone in Korea. However, if you are flying a larger commercial drone, you will need to to...

Text and Cinemagraphs: 2 Options to Make More Creative Content

By on Mar 12, 2019 in Photography, Technique Tuesday, Tutorials | 0 comments

Cinemagraphs are great for ads and promotions, but it is always a challenge blending in your text or logo into a cinemagraph. Dues to the way that we currently create cinemagraphs, having test that may bleed over onto the masked out move areas, just didn’t look that good as you would still have to cut away parts. It just doesn’t look good. For an idea of the old way, check the video below and excuse the lame joke at the beginning. At any rate, you had really only one option and that was to export the top image and add text away from the moving parts of the cinemagraph and then import into cinemagraph pro. Fortunately, Flixel and Over have found a solution to this import/export/can’t have graphis over the moving parts issue. I will be taking you through both apps today to show you their new functionality and how it can make your cinemagraphs event better! Cinemagraph...

How a New Personal Project Keeps Me Inspired

By on Jan 16, 2019 in Photography | 0 comments

A few months ago I got a call from Dylan Goldby, who is a legendary photographer and writer for F-stoppers. He was coming down to my neck-of-the-woods and wanted to meet up for some sunrise shots and some coffee. Checking the map, I had to laugh as he told me to meet him at the baby bottle lighthouse, which is in front of the Mazinger Z Lighthouse which next to the Taekwon V Lighthouse. I got a good little chuckle out of this. Chatting over coffee, Dylan and I discussed some of the many unique lighthouses that there are around the area. This got me thinking about a new personal project. Why not shoot all the unique lighthouses that I can find in Korea? Fishing for more information, I posted to several photography groups in the area. My friend Leigh MacArthur suggested starting a new instagram account for this project as he did. Leigh started a new account some time ago for...

Flickr’s ReBirth

By on Jan 11, 2019 in Photography | 6 comments

Flickr for me was my starting point as a photographer. It was way way back in 2006 when I first started uploading my photos and I really haven’t stopped. Flickr has served me as a backup and as a portfolio for many years. Flickr was always a place for photography and photos… good or bad. I watched flickr go through some low times and slowly slide into obscurity. Sites like 500px and instagram came in and pushed Flickr further away to the point were few were using it and the groups were dead. Yet, flickr somehow stuck around. It got handed off to different people who promised to make it better or at least “what it was” and then nothing happened. Now, we see that Smugmug has picked up the torch and is planning to do something with Flickr. What that is, I am not sure at this stage in the game. However, those with a free account are seeing the first of many changes....

Gampo Sunrise: How I Got the Shot

By on Jan 4, 2019 in Photography | 0 comments

ISO 50 105mm f/7.1 184.0 sec canon 5D MKiii 24-105mm lens with 10 stop ND filter Recently, I posted this online to one of my favourite photo groups on Facebook and was asked about posting the settings in order to help people better understand how to I achieved this shot. It is a common question but I feel that it only shows part of the puzzle. It’s a bit like asking a cook how much spice did they put in their sufflet. Only knowing the amount, you still won’t be able to make the same dish. Photography is much the same. With this in mind, I thought that I would breakdown the whole image. Giving you a better understanding of the process rather than hoping if you copy the settings in the image caption that you will achieve a similar result. Location I scouted this location a couple of days prior and saw that the rocks in the water are a very interesting. This is a popular area...

2018: Year in Review

By on Dec 31, 2018 in Photography | 0 comments

I had this great idea for an amazing “year in review” post. Sadly, it sort of fell apart as I got lost in re-editing all my images from the past year. Hours flew by as I reminisced and combed through all the images of all the places that I went. I forgot what I was going to write about. However, I realized that my purpose here or better yet, the reason that you are here is because of my photos. I just want to take you through a year of my photography (explaining as I go) with more photos than words. This was the first series that I shot in 2018 and strangely one that will have a big impact in 2019 Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics were a high point of the year for me. Not only did I get a chance to work for Visa and Flixel but I also got to work with some of the best photographers in country! I also got to enjoy the games as well. This was a great time out as I had been...
