A fun to watch 1940′s vocational guidance film that discusses careers in photography and cinematography. It is interesting to see how much photographic equipment has changed since the 1940’s, when this film was made and how much easier it is for us now, with digital cameras.
Lightroom 4.2 is now available as a final release on Adobe.com and through the update mechanism in Lightroom 4. The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support as well as address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.
Adobe also released Camera Raw 7.2 and DNG Converter 7.2.
Thank you to all the participants who came out last night for the Camera West Night Photography workshop led by Shawn Peterson. After a slide show presentation by Shawn and his special guest Stu Jenks, where we saw their beautiful night images and talked technique, we hopped into our cars and headed to San Francisco to the historic and always fun to shoot Sutro Baths.
The weather was perfect – no fog and no wind – for night photography. We practiced shooting long exposures of the Sutro Bath ruins and the rocks just off-shore, lit by a bright full moon. Most of our exposures were in the 4-8 minute range. Some also practiced painting their landscape with flashlights to add some detail, a technique Shawn and Stu taught us.
For those of you interested in shooting at night, and who missed out on this workshop, Camera West and Shawn will be leading another night photography workshop in the near future. To keep up to date on all our events, visit the Events link on the Camera West website.
Check out some photos from the evening below. Also soon on our Camera West Night Photography Flickr site, you will see more of the images our participants came up with.
