  • Lightroom to iPad to Lightroom with Photosmith | DigitalOxygen.ca Photography
    work with other setups but as this procedure is unsupported already there are no guaruntees You will need the Photosmith Lightroom plugin installed What I used SD card for transferring photos from computer to iPad USB card reader for copying photo from the computer to SD card Apple s camera connection kit for copying photo from SD to iPad What you could use There are various other ways to transfer the images from your computer to the iPad which I won t go into here but they could include things like the following USB stick Compact Flash CF card 3rd party iPad compatible CF reader they exist Your camera connected via USB Steps Ensure the folder structure on your SD card matches the strucuture of the cards formatted in your camera For example Canon s are setup like this DCIM 1234EOS7D IMG 1234 CR2 Copy the image s from their source your hard drive to the SD card via Finder or export the originals from Lightroom If xmp sidecar files were copied to the card you may want to delete them to make bulk deleting photos later easier If the image filenames are non standard i e not IMG 1234 you will need to rename them back to the standard format NOTE You may also need to rename these in Lightroom later to match Again try the procedure with a single image to determine your workflow Using the Apple camera connection kit connect the SD card to your iPad Import the desired image s into your iPad Open Photosmith and import the photos should happen automatically when Photosmith opens unless auto import is turned off Do your tagging metadata tweaking staring etc Start the LR plugin and choose the collection to sync Ensure you set up the Destination Directory to match the original location of the photos AND ensure the image names match Run the sync and see if it worked Notes The iPad will not see the photos if the folder structure or file names are non standard i e don t match the camera manufacturers standards defaults Images exported from Lightroom as originals XMP are difficult to delete from the iPad in bulk via Image Capture on OS X it just won t do it Seems the xmp sidecar files cause a problem maybe because the iPad knows they are there proven by the RAW xmp watermark on the thumbnails in the iPad photo app but Image Captures does not and they the iPad is silently denying the request to delete them nothing happens no errors nothing They just don t delete Image path AND image names should been the same between the iPad and Lightroom during sync If either one is incorrect during sync they will not be matched and the plugin will think you are importing new photos and will copy them to LR as new photos rather than syncing the metadata with the existing ones I use non standard image names i e I rename

  • Rocket for Sale | DigitalOxygen.ca Photography
    keep sakes I of course said yes never wanting to miss an opportunity to shoot new and interesting subjects I had a rough idea of what I wanted to accomplished but no time to scout a location I came up with a couple possible spots on the way over to his place and after checking the position of the sun upon arriving I cut it down to one location that might work Although I didn t quite get the shots I was after due to the angle of the sun and the hills in the background I was able to improvise with the help of a reflector held by the owner to obtain the first first two shots The next two sets were snagged with the use of two Canon 430EX flashes on either side of the road triggered by some inexpensive but quite reliable flash triggers Discuss No Comments No comments yet Why not add one below Add a Comment Cancel reply Connect with Enter your WordPress com blog URL http wordpress com Proceed Your email address will not be published Note marked required fields Name Email Website Comment Older Newer Subscribe Keep up to date by subscribing via

  • Fun with Food | DigitalOxygen.ca Photography
    lens from what I see and read online anyway I m still waiting for mine to arrive The presentation in this piece and the subsequent one could be a lot better but it was thrown together on a whim right before I sat down to eat it and well I know jack about food presentation In my excitement and rush to shoot it I also failed to realize there were carrots prepared and feta cheese in the fridge I could have added to the pasta salad Both would have added some extra pop to the photo Maybe next time Doing this quick shoot reminded me of another food shoot I ve been meaning to do a post about In the interest of time I will just throw it in here Shot the following in the same fashion to the above with the exception that I used white card stock as a backdrop and it was shot with only bounce light from the flash no natural light as the above shot It really deserves it s own post because it encompassed much more prep and lighting work that the above shot Hopefully I ll find the time one day and do

  • Reflective Heart | DigitalOxygen.ca Photography
    that my creative eye was on the lookout for heart shaped objects and other things of that nature It wasn t long before I noticed our coffee mugs had handles that were a beautifully shaped 1 2 heart I immediately started running through different ways in my head that I could use these for a shot I wanted to setup a couple of mugs so that their two handles came together and made a heart shape As you can see from this photo the physics of that are well difficult if not impossible I thought about shooting through the handle of one with the second in the background to see if I could roughly line them up that way but no dice Had a few other fruitless ideas too including just straight up breaking the mugs and raping them for their handles Not such a great idea since we just bought them and the wife would kill me I was almost ready to give up when for whatever reasons I thought about using a mirror and a single mug instead of two I had a clear concept now I just needed to execute it I browsed around the house for

  • Bokeh Experiment | DigitalOxygen.ca Photography
    as well as some kits available but I decided to wing it and dove into the cutting and crafting I chose a heart shape to start with in part because of the inspirational photo and also in part because my kids just happen to have some heart shaped stickers around that made a great template Discuss No Comments No comments yet Why not add one below Add a Comment Cancel

  • Amazing Cinematography | DigitalOxygen.ca Photography
    s right it s ALL CGI Granted I have not actually seen a lot of CGI outside of the average hollywood movie but this whole piece is so captivating and well done in every way you become completely enveloped not realizing it s not real In fact even when I knew going in it was CGI I didn t want to believe it Sure there are moments when you can tell and as the piece progresses those moments become obvious and it s no longer being hidden but it s in those first few moments those scenes when you think everything is real that it really gets you The mark of good CGI is when you don t know it s real The mark of great CGI is when you swear it has to be real Don t believe it Check out the Compositing Breakdown Compositing Breakdown T S from Alex Roman on Vimeo Courtesy of the Fstoppers com post In The Future Nothing Will Be Real Tags photography Discuss No Comments No comments yet Why not add one below Add a Comment Cancel reply Connect with Enter your WordPress com blog URL http wordpress com Proceed Your email address
