Capturing the transition between day and night as a time lapse can be a complex process that requires constantly changing settings to create a smooth flicker-free end result. I use qDSLR Dashboard to capture the images and LRTimelapse to process the time lapse.
You've probably seen those cool panoramic images in Facebook where you can not only drag to explore the image, but even tilt and pan your phone to do it. Neat! I really wanted to add a panoramic photo I'd created in Lightroom to Facebook, but it didn't work. It turns out, there's a few things you have to do… and the path to figuring that out was a looooong one.
The X-Rite ColorChecker Passport is an industry standard tool for achieving color accuracy in your photos. It's remarkably easy to use, and as you're about to see, can make a tremendous difference in your photos.
The Velvet 56mm f/1.6 Lens from Lensbaby produces a creamy, uniquely soft, glowing image quality, and is great for capturing those dream-like portraits. You can control the softness with the f-stops and still achieve a shallow depth of field. Lensbaby is a third-party manufacturer, and offers versions of these lenses for all sensor sizes/brands.
