Hello Capture One Goobye Lightroom

Changing photo editing software. Holiday print sale

Advertisements

Don’t worry this is not going to be a big rant on anything Adobe, but I am switching over from Adobe products to 3rd party platforms. I have used Adobe for so many years now and it’s inevitable that other software makers would come up with something to compete with Adobe, but after Adobe’s switch to a subscription based operation (even though Adobe is treating it as more of a contract than a subscription ) I am not too fond of it after nearly a year of usage. Of course the 3rd party platforms I have switched over to are, in reality, not exactly newcomers neither, as Capture One in one form or another has been around longer than Lightroom.

I know it’s going to be a learning curve working with new programs and going to take a bit to get the hand of them, but so far I am really liking these 3rd party. With Capture One the largest learning curve so far is the importing of images, other than that it seems to be very similar to Lightroom for tools with several other tools added that Lightroom doesn’t have. I’ll go over them in a later post as well once I get experience using the tools

As for Photoshop. I am working on another program which I will go into depth in another posting as I am just starting that one. It shouldn’t be too difficult as it seems to be laid out exactly like photoshop.

The biggest hurdle to overcome is the integration that Adobe products had with each other, something that separate 3rd party software do not have. I am sure I will find something to work though.

Patronage

I am also working on a patronage program. I will be releasing that soon with a video, so stick around.

 

Cloudy All Week

so the forecast for my region will be mostly cloudy and chances of snow until Monday so there won’t be much of that astrophotography taken this week, but here are a couple from the past couple of weeks.

Return to Colorado

fine art nature photographer returning to Colorado. Fine art print sale

After 7 months in South Carolina, I am back in Colorado, this time in the Western Slope of the state. Desert country, mesa country, and canyon country of Colorado. A grandeur of scenery with so many photographic opportunities. So I bet you want to see some photos taken in the 2 1/2 months back.

 

I got back just in the nick of time for fall colors. After 7 months in the south I was greeted by this spectacular scene upon arriving back in the Rockies. Hello Vail, missed you very much

No sooner did I settle into my new place than off to Grand Mesa, first time here in Autumn

 

Of course with only an hour and a half drive now, who could resist Kebler Pass with it’s widely regarded largest Aspen forest on Earth

 

Of course now in the rural western US I have had plenty of opportunities for astrophotography, something I have been wanting to do for a long time and a new path for my photography.

with many more photos to come.

 

This return was not without it’s hitches as I had 3 hard drive failures including the loss of my desktop, but I am back up and running with that.

 

So for my return to Colorado I am offering a holiday sale for 50% off prints and canvas wraps until December 16th. Go to my website for information on purchasing and to see my full portfolio. Christmas and New Years are coming up fast so hurry.
