  • Hi guys - thanks so much, late last night I downloaded the latest update 9.3 and it started working again. Thank goodnesss. :-)
  • Created discussion thread capture one will not process my files!
    After having spent all day processing 200+ files successfully, I am down to the last 40. For some reason capture one 9 will not process them. It either goes painfully slowly - and stops about 5% in ...
  • Ah thats a very interesting point. Thanks so much everyone. I have well and truly learned my lesson - retouch in RGB and convert to CYMK later. Currently re processing over 200+ files. Not a fun ...
  • Replied in CYMK to RGB
    Hi, thanks for the info.  It sounds like you know your stuff. Im the photographer, we shot raw to capture 1 and then exported TIffs to the CYMK colour profile the client requested. Those files were ...
  • Created discussion thread CYMK to RGB
    I shot a food cook book. We did over 100+ shots. The client asked me for CYMK files with a specific colour profile. We processed them as CYMK and my assistant spent a day or two doing colour ...
  • Thanks everyone for your tips. Great news its possible, now  just need a moment to do it!
  • Created discussion thread Can I upgrade my flash storage?
    I have 500 GB Flash Storage & as I have found recently, when shooting a book for nine days straight, then a look book, it is not enough. I am currently jiggling around files with external hard ...
  • Thanks very much for that. Most interesting. I love that you used actual flames and didn't just comp in the effect in post. Great work.
  • Thank you for your insightful comments. Yes I think shooting from an angle would be a better option for the overhead dish shot..
  • Interesting idea - thanks.
  • Thats an interesting idea. So the macro lens just has a shorter minim focal length, than a standard 50mm?
  • From what I understand this used to be standard in food photography - however things are changing! The healthy food movement means that on 98% of my clients shoots food is edible! Great for me as ...
  • I managed to correct this in capture one - but here it is before correction. This looks quite distorted to me... perhaps I should have been higher up and cropped in?
  • Created discussion thread Tricky food to photograph?
    Bit of a random question, but I've been commissioned to shoot my first book, and as ive been shooting food for less than a year, there is a lot of different things that I haven't had to light. The ...
  • Created discussion thread Avoiding 50mm lens distortion
    I have recently started shooting food. I am using a fixed 50mm lens for most shots. I'm wondering is there an ideal distance I should be from my subject to avoid distortion? I seem to notice it the ...
  • Created discussion thread Tips for 50mm lens avoid distortion
    I have recently started shooting food. I am using a fixed 50mm lens for most shots. I'm wondering is there an ideal distance I should be from my subject to avoid distortion? I seem to notice it the ...
  • I did try a magic arm with camera mount, but I'm sad to say that I found I'm not quite strong enough to easily lock / unlock it. So I gave up on that option. I think I'm going to give the first set ...
  • In theory this would be a great solution, however, the surface that I'm shooting on is hired and placed on top of a portable table that I have. The table isn't that sturdy & even if I got a ...
  • Thank you so much for that info about what to buy to achieve this set up. Yes noted about the potential movement issues. Perhaps a couple of sandbags. I do use studio flash - two parallel soft ...
  • Created discussion thread Overhead photography
    I would like to achieve something like the below for an overhead food photography set up - does any one have any ideas what the attachments for the camera is called? I have a background support ...
