The Aviator Travel Jib

To capture the shots you’ve seen where a camera fluidly glides across the horizon or moves smoothly up or down in a scene, filmmakers use a tool called a jib, a crane-like piece of equipment that’s typically expensive, heavy, and complicated to set up. That is until the folks over at Nice Industries introduced The Aviator Travel Jib, a best-in-class, compact, lightweight, and affordable travel jib.

Editing JPEGs and TIFFs in Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw

This really surprises a lot of people, but you can shoot in JPEG or TIFF modes on your camera and still use Camera Raw just like you would with any RAW photo. So I thought I’d show you how to do just that, because it’s not really obvious, and there are a couple of different ways to do it.

Using External JavaScript Libraries with Edge Animate

Animate allows users to connect directly to remote JavaScript libraries using the new Script panel. Tom Green demonstrates the basic functionality in this video tutorial.

Leica M240

Leica’s new M240 Rangefinder is the company’s second full-frame digital camera, and it packs a lot of new features. The move from a CCD sensor to a new 24-megapixel CMOS sensor and Leica Maestro image processor pays off with rich, detailed, noise-free, high ISO files.

Four Ways to Create Contrast in Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw

When we do live photo critiques at my workshops and on The Grid (my weekly podcast about photography), one of the most common problems we see in photos is that they look flat (in other words, they need contrast—like the flat-looking image you see below). You can create contrast right in Camera Raw.

Focus 2 Pro

Bokeh creates beautiful soft backgrounds, thus calling attention to a very shallow area of sharp focus in the foreground. However, what are photographers to do when they’re unable to capture this effect in camera, when the light isn’t right, when the wish for bokeh becomes an afterthought, or a missed opportunity? Enter Macphun Software’s Focus 2 Pro.

Profoto B1 500 and Air Remote TTL

Long favored by off-camera flash shooters for its ability to maintain a connection between the flash and the camera’s metering system (in many cases wirelessly), TTL allows users to create rock-solid exposures on the fly, without taking meter readings.

Creating Form Elements in Edge Reflow

In this tutorial, Tom Green shows how to create form elements using Reflow. He uses the button panel to create and style the form elements, and then tests the functionality inside the Reflow interface.
