October is (what else?) COLOR CORRECTION Month

Autumn's burst of colors is almost here, and what better time to brush up on our COLOR MANAGEMENT skills - both at capture in the camera -  AND afterward in post?   

In keeping with our ongoing emphasis on "better-to-enhance-a-well-shot-image-than-to-fix-a-badly-shot-one", we'll start out by asking new assistant organizer Rich Engelbrecht to show us ways to get colors right in our cameras in the first place at capture.  But for those times when multiple light sources or a setting error leave us with a chromatic mess, both LR and PS have some AMAZING tools for bringing our images back to reality!  We'll look at those in some detail, along with our usual couple of selected clips from those nice folks at Lynda.com.  Check back for more details as the date approaches, but be sure to RSVP soon, rather than later.

Many thanks to Susan Spall, who emailed me just before leaving for Germany with her husband saying she'll be happy to sponsor us at the Town Hall for the upcoming year!

    This was my first meeting with this group and it was very worthwhile. Looking forward to future presentations.

    Question: Has anyone here hacked their Canon using Magic Lantern? I have a T3/1100D (please be kind, this is my first DSLR!) and am thinking it would be nice to add some features like mirror lockup and an in-camera intervalometer.)

      I haven't done it but I've heard of it being done successfully. In fact, I notice in the comments by Mike below that he's considering it too. I understand it voids your Canon warranty so be forewarned.

      Thanks, I'm always leery of stuff you run across online while looking for something else. While I might not try it on a $3000 camera (or need to) my risk is pretty low. In any case it's a moot point since the released version doesn't support the T3 and the version I'd need doesn't build successfully.

    For some time lapse stop action photographic history see the Wikipedia article about Eadweard Muybridge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eadweard_Muybridge). On this web page are a couple of his stop action sequences projected in motion, all from the 1870ʼs and 80’s!

    The Eastman House has some prints of his work and some books of his photographs.

    I misspoke last evening when I said I paid $40 for my intervalometer, the device that triggers the shutter on my camera at regular intervals. It was $16! That's all you need to get started in time lapse photography. Here's the link to the one for my Canon 6D. Be sure to choose one that fits your particular make and model of camera (my Canon SX-50 is different from the 6D for example).

    Check your camera's manual to see if it has a built in intervalometer feature. Some cameras now have it, even some Nikons\ DSLRs.

    Here are links to the two time-lapse videos you saw at last night's meeting:

    Always wishing that I had more time for photography after I leave these presentations. New things to try - Camera white balance correction, select a section to control use of cloning (cool - never thought of combining the two techniques). Get to try time-lapse (I'm already looking into tools & techniques, check this link http://www.magiclantern.fm/).

    The iPhones panoramas are impressive. Thanks for sharing. If anyone is interested in the technical details of how an iPhone Panoramic image is formed, you can learn about it here:
