Capture One Pro 11 Released


Capture One Pro 11 was just released. Loving all the new features. 

As most of you know I've used Capture One Pro for years. It's the only thing I have open on set to tether. It's colour and RAW conversion is world renown. This year I was honoured to be brought on as one of thirteen ambassadors of Capture One Pro worldwide. It's amazing when you can work with a brand you use day in and day out and you trust.

So here comes an amazing announcement, Capture One Pro 11 just hit the ground running today and it's amazing, with crazy new features. A lot of these features have been requested by us and it's great to see when they get implemented and your job gets easier on set. Use using layers in photoshop? C1P now has that! If you ever wanted to step back a colour grade 10-20% but didn't have that capability, you now can. Annotations are now available, so you can draw right on your images in capture one so you can ensure those client comments are not forgotten, also, you can export those annotations to a new layer in photoshop right from capture one. The new feather mask and refine mask is very impressive, drawing complex masks is now a thing of the past.

If you've been on the fence about Capture One, I recommend grabbing the 30-day trial, hitting up some tutorials on their site and give it a whirl. You might just end up like me and never look back.

Sidebar-announcement, I'll be jumping on a webinar soon with Phase One and Capture One to talk about editing with Capture One, so keep your eyes peeled for that official date and time.

Capture One 11 introduces an updated processing engine, market-leading performance, and powerful new features. The highly responsive tools give you the power to create stunning images from your camera's RAW files, in a time-saving workflow that can be customized to fit your needs.

Derek Heisler - Directing models vs. posing them during photo shoots

Creative Director and Conceptual photographer Derek Heisler explains the benefits of directing your models rather than just posing them during your shoot. Here's a small bit from his talk in Toronto May 11th, 2017. We want to thank Canon Canada and Vistek for sponsoring the event.
