How to make short time lapse movies longer and smoother with Photoshop

Let’s say you have only 8 sequential shoots but you need at least 40 otherwise the sequence is too short or not smooth enough. How could you fill the gaps?

– Open the sequential pictures in Photoshop
– File > Scripts > Load files into stack
– Add Open files and tag Attempt to Automatically Align Source Images (if you did not shoot on tripod, you could get quite funny effects from this option)
– Window > Animation
– Top right menu of the newly open animation window: Make Frames from Layer
– Top right menu of the animation window: Reverse Frames and Optimize Animation

Nikkor AF-S 16-35 mm 1:4G ED: wide lens for panorama … and for flowers too.

Where to test the Nikkor 16-35 mm under this grey, equal sky today? Not outside, although I got this lens for border less skies and full size buildings.. . The minimal distance from the lens is 28 cm … none of my other lens can reach it. Let’s test it with flowers and apples! Awesome lens, it substituted my 17-35 mm dream lens but I am not aware of what I lost. For sure, I earned a VR stabilizer, very useful at least for “macro” subjects. Let’s hope in Spring finally coming for outdoor tests …

D800 .JPG compression vs RAW/NEF (vs Vignette control ON ?)

d800_NEF_vs_jpg

Once upon a time, on a very foggy winter day I shot a picture with a D800 plus 70-200 mm VR II f/2.8 to the far distant lake bridge (small insert 100% cropped). Once home I worked on brightness and contrast and … the JPG version (set to maximum quality) showed its weakness. Or was it the Vignette control ON? I doubt it works on the centre of the picture. So, keep in mind the power of RAW files in difficult light conditions.

How to shoot gorgeous pictures above the clouds, against the sun, at -15°C

artborghi-santis-overthecloud-2

The Säntis (Switzerland) cablecar brings you above the clouds after an impressive climb along its massive glacier. To survive on Alps in winter you should not forget what I forgot:

– sun glasses
– sun cream
– thin warm gloves

artborghi-santis-overthecloud-1

About photo gears, I was the only photographer up there without

–  UV filter
–  polarizer

I had them, but their profile is to high for my new lenses and give strong vignetting.

Despite 5 of the most important points were not respected, I had plenty of battery, three different light meterings to test and several memory cards. This (and HDR and photo retouch) helped to have material for this new artborghi gallery on flickr.com : click it and enjoy the show!

Additionally, you can give a look to the panorama pictures made out of this gorgeous Alpine day by clicking here

How to create amazing stitched online panorama from D800 shots

 artborghi_santis_panorama_HDR2small

Click on post pictures first and on the opened new tab after to zoom and give a look to the several hi-res panorama I shot on Säntis (CH) . Below a few hints:

artborghi_santis_2small

– use the D800 tilt indicator to get parallel pictures
– fix the focus on the subject (i.e. after focusing switch to M)
– work on A priority with f/7.1 or more to get all in focus

artborghi_santis_1small

– Quickly downsize your Fx pictures with XnView or similar to 5000px x 3333px (with less than 16 GB ram try as low as 1600px x 1068px) .

artborghi_santis_3small

– Stitch the resized pictures with Hugin

– Tilt / crop the panorama picture with a photo editor (vertical and horizontal lines in long panoramas can be difficult … find what was corrected in this additional panorama)

– Adjust the HDR toning if you use it like in the first post picture (click it for a larger hi-res view)

– In case no colour adjustment does satisfy you, don’t forget about B&W conversion.

– Load your pictures on zoom.it

For low-res (fast download) plus pan and zoom views, click on the zoom.it links below:

Pieces of horses: when big is too big

artborghi-horse-bits-1small
I find horses (and donkeys) difficult subjects to shoot.
artborghi-horse-bits-2small
Their bodies are  too long, easy to fail if not sharp at the right points.
artborghi-horse-bits-3small
Waiting for horses galloping in the wild or for a wide angle, I get (small) satisfactions by cropping tiny pieces of horses. Click and zoom to enjoy their hairiness.
