A Test Time Lapse Testing “Exposure Smoothing”

I love doing time lapse (latest one I shared)! Been doing them for a long time and quite often, I do them just as a way to remind myself of the time and place, not to be shared. The D810 has a new “exposure smoothing” algorithm that is part of its Time-lapse that I wanted to try out prior to hitting the field with it (this was shot from our deck). Time-lapse Photography is in My Menu so I selected it, set Interval to 15″, Shooting time to 6:25′ hours, Exposure smoothing On and got ready to go. The rig, D810 / 24f1.4 AFS loaded with Lexar 128GB SD (I have video saved to the SD slot) with the battery fully charged and hot out of the charger. The Time-lapse feature in the D810 (like in the other bodies) processes and saves the time lapse as a .mov when done. With the afternoon thunderstorms dancing about, I thought it would be a cool end result. And while we didn’t...

What I Used at PSW – Wacom 13HD

I’ve had a number of folks who came to my Landscape Class at Photoshop World ask what I was using when finishing images. I had the Mac Retina and the Wacom 13HD. I never leave home without either! They both have the same footprint, they both fit in the Think Tank 2nd Brain and they both greatly speed up my work in the digital darkroom. As you can see in the video, the Wacom 13HD is a portable Cintiq, a monitor and tablet combined into one unit. It’s pretty darn cool technology and as you saw in class, it permits great speed and creativity. So there’s your answer to what I was using on...

Moose’s Basic Workflow

I’m constantly being asked “What’s my workflow?” I’m really never sure just what is really being seeked by this question nor what information is really useful to folks. It really is a lot like the image creation process itself which varies as we all know from photographer to photographer. It all depends on what you want in the end that determines all that comes before. So before I explain my workflow, understand what my end is all about. Let me use a real world example. You’ve probably noticed there are a number of blogs of late of aircraft from North Dakota where we spent the 4th. Thinking I was going for just to celebrate the holiday with friends, we ended up doing a lot of flying, over 5hrs and that produced a helluva a lot of images. Now one thing that I pride myself on is speed, speed in getting prints to the pilots to say thanks. To make this happen, all those images I captured need to be...
