Adobe Labs Lens Profile Creator

This is an interesting new technology from Adobe Labs. It allows for the profiling of camera lenses. In Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom, you have the ability to correct for camera “distortion”. Now in the old days, I considered Lens distortion a “visual effect” ! But now a days it seems there is a quest for “perfection”

Now Adobe has the tendency to only speck in terms of their latest & greatest software releases, like CS5. But since they also mention Lightroom & Camera Raw it “may” work with the latest update Photoshop CS4 since Camera Raw and Lightroom share the same Raw conversion engine.

The interesting part of all this is that Adobe is asking its user community to send them their .LCP(lens correction profiles) files that they create.

This is what it does in Photoshop CS5

A Voice of Light in the Darkness

Filed under: Innovation,Inspiration,Observations,Photography — Jarvo @ 1:33 pm

A couple of weeks ago I commented on an article that was in the NY Times about the Death of Photography as a Career Path. I’ve just read an article by Selina Maitreya on the same topic. Man what a difference! In Selina’s post, she speaks to the Life of Assignment Phototgraphy. In it she cites certain Truths, from her perspective. One Truths is, Negative loud voices are ever present.

I think that no matter who you are or what you are doing these days, you must work very hard to rally against the every present clutter and clamerings of these Negative Voices. The message of “Abandon All Hope” or that “Greed is Never Going Away, so Get Your Share” or that “There is only one Group that the Voice of  Truth Belongs To”. So in that we folks how are Creative People must not lose sight of this, and be prepared to provide a message of Hope for everyone. So, get out there and show that portfolio!

The New Zone System…

Brooks JensenBrooks Jensen is probably one of the most progressive, innovative photography communicator/educators out there. Back in the last century (!) Brooks was telling photographer not to fall prey to the gallery system. He has set up his own publishing house, that creates “Folios” of photographers work for sell. Not only has he done that, he actually instructs photographers & artists how to do the same. There are no secrets with this guy! I have passed along his ‘white papers” and podcasts to fellow artist. When ever I had a question, I could send him an email, and he would answer.

I was just at his website, Lenswork,  & one of his three blogs. For photographers, this article on the “New Zone Systems” is definitely worth a read. Click here to check it out.

Leading from Behind, by By Bryn Meredith

Modern day leadership demands that we display a whole array of different skills, competencies and abilities. Leading from behind is just one of those that you might like to consider and not discount too quickly.
