Capture One main features : QF Ep 42

In this blogpost a bit of attention to our videowebpodcast “Quite Frankly”
In this videowebpodcast I always share photography related tips and tricks which range from retouching to shooting people/models/street and travel, as long as it’s photography related and I love it… well I share it.


Over time I got a lot of questions about why I use Capture One in my workflow so I decided it was time for a quick overview of the topics which I love in Capture One and I’m sure you will love too, especially if you shoot tethered.


Here is the episode, and remember that when you want to buy Capture One you can use the code AMBDOORHOF for a cool discount :

Faking a sunset

You know I don’t really like to “cheat” right?
Well actually it’s a little bit handy sometimes.



Let’s say you’re on that stunning location and the sun is already dropping but it will take at least another hour to get that beautiful sunset…. and your family really wants to go, what do you do?
Well you could get into an argument and stay.


But sometimes you can get away with some “trickery”.
If you position yourself behind an object and capture the sun just barely in the frame and underexpose the scene you can very easily in Photoshop add some warmth (in this case I used DxO Filmpack but you can also just change the color temp or use Alien Skin Exposure, Capture One, or whatever tinting solution you like).



It’s not a great or real sunset but at least it gives you a slight bit of that look without loosing the image completely. And the effort in Ps is very minimal.

Sometimes it happens that during family shoots you find someone that jumps out and you ask “Did you ever model?”
Most of the times the reaction is “No… do you think I could”, and sometimes “Yeah all the time” and anything in between.


This is how I found Jonathan, just a normal family portrait and a guy with no real camera experience, so I invited him over for a so called “testshoot”, today I share some of the results and I’m sure we are going to be seeing Jonathan more.
