835 A Touchy Subject

Chris discusses ethics in wildlife photography and how there’s now a proposal for Exif data that deals exactly with that: what was the stress level of the animal, how much manipulation was taking place during the shoot, and much more. Your opinion? Discuss it in the Slack on channel #genre-wildlife.

Special guest on today’s episode is mad scientist photographer Don Komarechka, who tells us about his experiments with snowflakes, freezing soap bubbles and UV photography.

833 Blood Moon

Sometimes nature gives you an amazing combination of three sky phenomema: the century’s longest lunar eclipse, the planet Mars bright in the sky and the ISS zipping by overhead. All at the same time. And then nature decides otherwise…

832 I Just Don’t Know

Chris tries (and sort of fails) to answer two questions: one about removing duplicates and one about photo asset management for a school.

831 Tattoo Removal

Chris found a great video with a look behind the scenes of how the Canon Flash system configures and triggers flashes with nothing but light. The code is decoded and if you’re good with electronics, you now have a great way to trigger Canon flashes remotely with an infrared LED. Chris is also fascinated by a photo project about the Maori culture of New Zealand and their Ta Moko face tattoos.. and how they don’t show up in an ancient photographic process.

830 Healing Superpowers

Responding to a question from Tom, Chris follows up on the last episode with a deep dive into the clone and healing brush tool. He explains the differences between cloning and healing, talks about ways of modifying your selection and points out some mind-boggling shortcuts that make you a pro healer.

829 Automated Healing

Let’s have a quick chat about Fuji’s X-Trans sensor. Chris also looks at an exciting new channel on the TFTTF Slack and answers listener questions. Michael is interested in cataloging smartphone images and Andy wonders about the strange way Lightroom auto-selects healing spots and how it sees shadows, mid-tones and highlights.

827 A Selfish Challenge

Chris talks about taking pictures out of a flying plexiglass (perspex) window at 150 mph. It’s also the reveal of the latest Slack Challenge. Let’s look at the winner photos (links below). Also someone tried to sell Jay a new camera, which made him wonder about sensor size. Chris goes into why a bigger sensor isn’t the goal.

826 Stabilization and Circles

Today Chris tries to answer one single question and it has to do with your camera’s in-body image stabilization (IBIS) and the size of your lenses’ image circles. Will the added motion still fit inside the image circles of lenses that have been designed long before it was possible to move sensors? Is the image circle really a factor to consider when buying a new lens?
