We’ve talked a lot about the new Magic Lantern RAW video enhancements lately (and I’m afraid you’re going to keep hearing about it because it is a significant enhancement to the Canon DSLR video line) but you have also got to see this test!

It has been shown you get a lot more dynamic range and sharpness with the Magic Lantern RAW video, but how well can you handle higher ISOs in video? This video from Dustin J Tolman shows just how amazing this is! Here’s a screen grab I made from the downloaded original size.

How to pose a model – the right way

How to pose a model – the right way

FacebookGoogle+TwitterPinteresttumblrEmail

The following is an open letter containing tips for models from Jen Brook.

dearmodel-9

Dear (new’ish) Model,

My name is Other Model. I have spent the last couple of years finding out a few things that I wish I’d known from the start. Please don’t think I’m patronising as I mean this only in goodwill, as there is absolutely no gain for me by sharing these cheats. Not all of my points will be valid for you as posing varies in each genre. Just take what you can and ignore the rest. If only one suggestion helps your future career then my time has been well spent…

How to make a timelapse video over a whole day (Bulb Ramping)

How to make a timelapse video over a whole day (Bulb Ramping)

FacebookGoogle+TwitterPinteresttumblrEmail

This method is called bulb ramping.

Shooting a Timelapse from day – night can be a nightmare without the proper equipment. For a long time I shot my sunset’s and day – night shots using the Holy Grail LRTimelapse method and making exposure changes and fixing them in post production until I finally got myself a Bulb Ramper. Bulb Ramping when done correctly can create a perfectly smooth transition with minimal post production time. The Final result can turn out to be absolutely fantastic! There are a few options for Bulb Ramping including Magic Lantern, GBTimelapse, the Little Bramper, and the Promote Controller. I’m sure there are many others but these particular ones are the most well known to me personally.
