Rank #1: "Is Capture One Pro 20 the Logical Alternative to Lightroom?" - TDS Podcast.
This is The Digital Story Podcast #718, Dec. 17, 2019. Today's theme is "Is Capture One Pro 20 the Logical Alternative to Lightroom?" I'm Derrick Story. Opening Monologue Among all the camera discounts and holiday hub-bub this December, there was some software news as well. Phase One released a major update to its photo management app, Capture One Pro 20. What's interesting about this latest version is that it's aimed squarely at disenchanted Lightroom photographers. Is it truly to logical alternative to Adobe products? I'll explore the possibilities on today's TDS podcast. Digital Photography Podcast 718 Is Capture One Pro 20 the Logical Alternative to Lightroom? When I look at some of the refinements in Capture One Pro 20, no doubt they are hoping to lure a few Lightroom users their way. Things like the simplified color panel, more friendly crop tool, and even a keyboard shortcut change that matches Lightroom for switching from a single photo to thumbnails (G). But is Capture One Pro the logical alternative? Let's take a look at five strengths of each application, then resume this discussion. Capture One Pro 20 Strengths RAW Processing. The hands down winner IMHO. Layers and luminosity masks, so easy, so powerful. Fully configurable workspaces - very customizable Outstanding color tools, especially for portrait work. Almost magical exposure controls, especially Contrast, Highlights, and Shadows. Lightroom Strengths HDR and panorama processing. Cloud integration with outstanding mobile apps. More training, 3rd party plugins, bigger ecosystem. Price. Yes, believe it or not, I think Lightroom is more affordable. Better integration with Photoshop and the entire Adobe ecosystem. So if you're dissatisfied with Lightroom, the place to start is why are you looking to change? If it's price, then you might want to stick with Lightroom. Capture One Perpetual license is $299. And let's say that I upgrade every other version. So to upgrade from version 11 is $199. So this investment should last me 48 month, provided that I only upgrade every other year. And the price still works out to $10.35 a month. If I go with the subscription plan for C1P, which keeps me current through all the version, that will cost me $20 a month if I pay monthly, or $180 a year if I pay all at once. Again more costly than the $10 a month I'm currently paying for Lightroom, Photoshop, and LR Mobile. If speed is your issue, I don't think you'll really be any happier with Capture One Pro. I never really notice a difference working on one app or the other. So which one you use will most likely come down to features. In my case, I like the library management better in Capture One, not to mention the RAW processing. But, I also have Lightroom for my panoramas, cloud connectivity, and HDR processing. If I had to choose just one, I would pick Capture One Pro. But I'm glad that I don't have to do that. Because there are a lot of things that I like about Lightroom as well. Adobe Photoshop for iPad gets AI-powered Select Subject feature You can read the entire article here on DP Review. At launch, Adobe said more powerful features would be added over time and back in November the company Adobe provided more detail on timelines and features that are to come. As promised, the AI-powered Select Subject feature which lets you isolate objects in the scene from the background has now been made available. In most cases, a selection can be made just with one tap, even if the subject has a complex outline. In a second step filters or other edits can be applied to either the isolated subject or the background. Adobe says the function works and performs on the same level as for the desktop version, despite the iPad's processing limitations. Machine learning was used to train the tool's algorithms using a wide range of objects and scenes but the company says it is still working on optimization for difficult subjects like hair or fur. Additionally, the app has been updated with faster cloud upload and download some user interface tweaks. More information is available on the Adobe website. Do You Have a Film Camera that Needs a Good Home? Over the last year, I've received donations from TDS members who have film cameras that need a good home.

Rank #1: Photographing the Redwoods.
The redwoods area that we’ll be looking at today is in CA, but just barely. It’s right on the border with Oregon and a great place to use as your base, if you’re not camping, is Crescent City. It’s about 12 miles south of the OR border. There’s plenty of hotel options. The weather is generally mild, if you’re used to OR coast weather then you know what to expect. In short, it’s somewhat mild in the summer topping out at about 80 degrees and generally windy. As I look at my “All Stays” app on my iPhone there’s plenty of campgrounds to consider staying at if you like that kind of thing. I like camping, but the time I went to the area I took two of my boys and elected to stay in a hotel. Airbnb would also be a good option. The places I want to focus on are: Jedediah Smith State Park | Stout Grove When we pulled in to the area we came through this state park which is cooperatively managed by the CA parks system and the National Park System. It’s about 10,000 acres in size and it contains 7% of all the world’s old growth redwoods. Also, the Smith River runs through it. It’s the longest free flowing river in CA. The park is a magnificent place to shoot. One place I went to was Stout Grove. Check out their website here. Battery Point Lighthouse The Battery Point Lighthouse is kind of cool. It’s right along the coast at Crescent City. And there’s a breakwater you can walk out on. At the end there’s some strangely shaped items that the boys and I loved walking out on. It made for some interesting shots. Find more info here. Mystery of Trees Mystery of Trees is kind of a neat place. If you’re looking for purely awesome photography… maybe go elsewhere. But if you have kids in tow it’s a pretty cool place. They have an easy to walk trail that takes you to a sky tram gondola. You can then walk down the mountain or ride the gondola back down. My favorite spot in this area, though, was the trail that’s accessible right across the road from Mystery of Trees. Park in the hotel parking lot, far northern end, and there’s a trail that takes you out to the coast. It’s short, but a really great place to shoot. Check out the maps here at the NPS website. Fern Canyon And finally there’s Fern Canyon. This is a rather easy to get to location that does not disappoint. I went in early summer and the river flowing through the canyon was already fairly low and easy to walk through. To get to the good stuff you should plan on getting your feet wet. But it was only about eight inches at the deepest part necessary to keep going. My only real problem here was my obsession with getting focus stacked panoramic images. I think I got some OK shots, but I neglected to get some with my wide angle. But the polarizer really helped here as well since the walls are coated with ferns and the polarizer blocks the glare off the moisture allowing the greenery to really come to life. But as an update here in early June 2018, there’s a logjam blocking the loop trail, a ¼ mile out and back is still possible and still quite worth it. Check out some trail information here.

Rank #2: Sensor Size Confusion.
The imaging sensor size in your camera does affect how you make your photography and some make a huge deal out of it. It’s my goal today to make a big deal out of nothing, or at least to help you understand my approach to it all. This is Latitude Photography Podcast, Episode 61 for December 15, 2019!

Today, we are talking about the effect that sensor size has on our image making. I’ve come across a few articles recently and have had some conversations about this with a few photographers, so it’s really fresh on my mind. I had planned on doing a gift guide, but I then decided that really just adds to the commercialism of Christmas and we have enough of that already, it seems that everyone and their brother is publishing a gift guide of some sort, so I decided to do something that’s a bit more in tune with what I’ve been thinking about these past few days. The first article I want to bring your attention to was written over 5 years ago by Neil van Niekerk. It’s a good rundown of what happens to your image when you shoot with a full-frame vs. a crop sensor. The second article is one that was published recently by Nando Harmsen on the fstoppers.com website. This article is less technical and simply draws attention the the many different sizes of sensors and things like different lenses needed to achieve the same field of view are discussed. But the final link I want to bring your attention to is the best Depth-Of-Field Calculator I’ve yet found which demystifies this whole thing. It gets rather technical so I’ll do my best to break it all down here for you, so let’s get started. (review of crop factor etc) To sum up the first article, the author goes through a very detailed step by step guide as to why we have shallower Depth of field on a crop sensor camera. What he fails to explicitly articulate is that by doing this comparison the way he’s doing it, we absolutely will get longer DOF simply because you need a shorter lens to get the same field of view. He referenced this article on Depth of Field by Cambridge in Colour but missed out one very key element. That is when we calculate DOF, we have to have a standard for interpretation. Since DOF is a sliding scale of sorts, who’s to say what’s in focus for me is also in focus for you? That’s why we call DOF to be the items that are in acceptably sharp focus. If you used a standard DOF calculator such as Photo Pills, and you were to put in the parameters of a Sony crop sensor camera, 28mm lens, f/8 and subject distance of 2 ft your calculated DOF is 5 and 21/32 of an inch. Switch that to a Sony full frame with the same paramaters, and your calculated DOF is 8 and 25/32 of an inch. Wait a minute. This means that the smaller sensor is shallower DOF? How can this be? This is where most folks usually, including me, just give up. I used to like to say this is all bunk because what if you have that full-frame Sony, and you shoot an image in crop mode and one in full-frame mode. You’ve done nothing else yet the DOF still changes!? How can this be. It’s stupid right? Yet it does change, even if you’re on the same exact camera. Further explanation This is where we bring in this idea of the circle of confusion. In short, the COC is simply the smallest perceivable detail for what you’re looking at. So a standard must be set for calculating DOF. You probably didn’t realize it but in general, all your DOF calculations have been based on your photo being translated to an 8x10 print and being viewed the distance of 1 foot. It’s important to know the physical size of the image because that means that the physical size of the sensor is also important in determining DOF. Since the physically larger full-frame sensor doesn’t have to be enlarged nearly as much, it has LONGER DOF all things being equal. Please notice, if you leave all things equal you will have a different field of view between the full-frame and crop sensor cameras. If your goal is to have the same perspective between the two systems (FF and crop sensor) then you will alter your DOF because you’re using a physically shorter lens. Let’s examine this one more time using the DOF calculator on the Cambridge In Colour website. Here’s my parameters: Max Print dimension: 10 inches Viewing Distance: 25cm (almost one foot) Eyesight: standard Camera Type: 1.5 crop factor Aperture: f/8 Focal Length: 28mm Focus Distance: 2 ft. Total DOF: .51 ft. Those of you with magnificent memories will remember that my previous calculations were just under (barely) six inches. That was also based on a slightly longer viewing distance of 12 inches, not the slightly less 25cm as this one is. So we’ll go with this calculator from here on out. Let’s change it to a full frame, that’s the only change. Calculated DOF goes from .51 ft to .79 ft. That’s the same type of adjustment we saw in the previous example where I was using the Photo Pills App. Now let’s leave it full-frame from here on out. And let’s leave the camera settings alone. Let’s change the print size to 14 inches and see what happens to our DOF. The DOF goes from .79 ft. to .55 ft. WOW. So when you make the print larger, the DOF gets shallower! Nothing else changed! I don’t know about you, but this is blowing my mind. Let’s now change the viewing distance to 50cm. We’ve about doubled the DOF just by increasing our print viewing distance. It’s now 1.17 ft. So what does this really say about DOF and all that? It means that DOF is truly subjective based on many different parameters beyond your camera, lens and distance to subject. It’s based on the perception of acceptably sharp focus. As you move that print further and further away you’re less and less able to see the fact that something is literally out of focus. Therefore we define acceptably sharp focus to be a greater depth within the frame. One more calculation, changing it to 1 meter print viewing distance increases the total DOF to 3.08 ft. So in review, just by changing our print size from 10 inches to 14 inches we decreased the DOF. But by increasing our viewing distance on that 14 inch print we then increased the calculated DOF. This, of course, assume you have standard vision. If you have 20/20 vision the DOF on that large print at 1 meter in distance goes from 3.08 ft to .75 ft again. So if you have good eyesight calculated DOF is different for you too. Makes sense, with out glasses calculated DOF is terrible for me because everything is a blur. With my glasses I have near 20/20 vision so that’s where I would want to look for calculations that have meaning for me. Your takeaway It’s easy for us to get bent out of shape over sensor size and how the DOF is a reason for one way or the other as you argue the benefits of one sensor size over the other. In reality, we’re usually way more concerned with the perspective and field of view of the scene first, and in that case, yes, a smaller sensor will need a shorter lens to render the scene before you the same as a larger sensor camera, therefore giving you much more DOF. But the primary reason that’s changing is that the lens itself has changed. that’s something that’s easy to see and understand. But it goes so much deeper than that. There’s perception and viewing that’s part of it too. And understanding DOF and how it really works in camera may help explain why your focus stacked image didn’t work out the way you thought it would. It might explain why f/4 on that shot really isn’t working the way you envisioned it. Are you viewing it on your phone or a large print? The calculated DOF will be different for those two very different viewing experiences. Assignment for January In keeping with this theme I have an assignment for you. I want you to go out and shoot something with a long and shallow DOF. Same subject, same framing as much as possible anyway. And then post them to the FB group with your commentary on why you like one over the other. Have something distinctly present in your foreground and have a reasonable background. Do this by January 3, 2020 and I’ll talk about the results in a future episode in January. You can also email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d rather not email. I will plan to put these into the show notes and a new fb group post for the show. Please give me a link you’d like to send folks too as well and we’ll be sure to link that in the show notes. Tip of the week Today’s tip of the week has nothing to do with DOF, lenses or anything like that. That would be too easy. Today’s tip is to shoot without actually looking through the viewfinder or the LCD screen. It can be from your hip or hold the camera high. You should look at something, concentrate on it, zoom your lens or walk closer or further away to frame your subject in a way that you envision. Once you’re done go ahead and check your results. Do this over and over with different subjects until you get “good” at it. Reminders I’m always looking for feedback and ideas so please reach out if you’ve got a show idea or someone you’d like me to interview. Send me an email at email@example.com Also, would you mind leaving a review of the show whether in Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen? I’ve announced my next big project and that is https://latitudephotographyschool.com I’ll have tutorials, deep-dive courses and my workshops listed there. Over my Christmas break I’ll be working like mad to get that moving and I’ll also bring back my personal website at brentbergherm.com where I’ll showcase galleries of my photography. Sign up today to be the first notified of when the school is open. Photography, travel and education is where my heart is and I can’t wait to get this thing fully launched. If there’s anything you’re just itching to learn more about, please reach out and let me know. Along with the school I’m also starting longer-term deep-dive mentorships. I have my first client I’m starting with this week as this episode is released. If you have a project you want guidance and advice on, or if you want to really do some soul searching about your voice as a photographer, maybe I can help. I invite you to reach out and if I think I can help then we’ll get something set up. Presently, I can only help three at a time so that means there’s two spots left for the first half of 2020. Mentorships will last about six months and we’ll have a couple of weekly meetings to start out with and we’ll go with monthly meetings after that. All the while you’ll get email support too. So if you need a kick in the pants to kickstart your next big project or to fine tune your creative process and outcomes drop me a line and let’s chat about it.
