  1. I would love if you could add a way to process timelapse sequences shot in HDR so that if I merge the three exposures and edit them as a 32bits file I can select a folder that contains for example 300 frames (1 in 0EV, 1 in +3EV and 1 in -3EV) and batch the same way that Photomatix does. This is an example of a timelapse frame that I have never been able to process because of this slow process. Here it is https://500px.com/photo/48376766/perfect-sunset-at-%22el-remate%22-by-fabriccio-diaz-?from=user_library I would love to process a 720 (3 exposure = 240 blended frames) HDR Raw Sequence and not having to manually edit each frame!
  2. Hey all, I'm really happy to announce that I've just released the first few videos of my passion project, the Shooting Series! What it's about I love photography and video - I'll often go out and shoot specific material for use in the Affinity Photo tutorials to demonstrate certain features, and this has fed into my desire to cover a mixture of well-known and esoteric shooting techniques. It's my goal, then, to produce a video series that looks at all kinds of weird and wonderful photographic techniques - from shooting for stacking (long exposure simulation, noise reduction) to light painting, "big stopper" effects, portrait panoramas, focus stacking landscapes.. the list goes on. I'm constantly gathering material and planning/scripting videos, but I've just put the finishing touches on a few of the videos and felt it was about time to share them. Where applicable, I'll also be providing sample materials to download. Additionally, I've also put accompanying articles up on my website that provide some additional tips and insights. Long Exposure Water - Watch on YouTube - Read article In this video we're looking at the popular technique of using long exposure times to create shots with blurred motion; in this particular case, we're focusing on water. When you shoot water with long exposures, it takes on a smoother, "flowing" and sometimes ethereal appearance. In the video, I cover the use of both variable and fixed Neutral Density filters, as well as square filters with a filter bracket. Burst Stacking - Watch on YouTube - Read article - Download sample images Here we're exploring the use of stacking in post to create a long exposure look from a burst of images. It's a very esoteric technique, but can prove very useful in certain circumstances: you could, for example, find yourself in a situation where you want to achieve a long exposure look to some water, but don't have either a means of stabilisation or any ND filters to cut down the light for a slower shutter speed. I've also provided a ZIP archive with image samples for two of the compositions so you can stack them and see the effect. Big Stopper - Watch on YouTube - Read article - Download sample images In this video we're taking a look at setting up the camera for a "big stopper" effect with landscapes, as well as exploring stacking in post production to both enhance and emulate the effect. Also provided is a ZIP archive with image samples for two of the examples so you can experiment with stacking them. Polarisers - Watch on YouTube - Read article In this short and sweet video we're taking a look at polarisers, examining their benefits and caveats. Portrait Panoramas - Watch on YouTube - Read article Check out how to capture more vertical space in your panoramas by shooting in portrait orientation. --- Hope you find them interesting and useful!
  3. I downloaded the trial versial and it doens't fit my needs. As a photographer, I edit like 200 photos one by one in a row. Using lightroom I can load all images in miniature and they are kept in a toolbar. When I click them they are loaded and I can edit, the moment I select another one the previous is "discarded" from ram and the modification are storaged. With Affinity Photo I can only load full images. I can't load at the same time 100 images, they would take a lot of time and ram. Therefore, it doesn't suit me.
  4. Good day! I'm fairly new to the whole photography thing let along photo editing. I'm absolutely in love with Affinity and its ease of use and user interface. Anyways, here's a few random shots that I've done and edited with AP. Comments and critique welcome!
  5. Here's my first try and doing a double exposure. I always loved the style and wanted to see if I could do it. Both underlying photos were taken by me and then edited in Affinity Photo. Comments and critique welcome!

    The Mist

    I've been away from the camera for some time now, but last night I decided to revisit a photo I had produced late last year. This was a 3-image HDR shot while vacationing in Northern California. Processed in A.Photo... I was just playing around with some settings, nothing too serious. I realized that I haven't had much time to play with the latest features in the app and I'm hoping to change that soon.
  7. Please scroll down to the end of this post to see the latest added tutorials. Thanks. Hello Everyone, In the last couple of weeks I shared in the Forum different topics related to video tutorials I upload to my YouTube channel. To make it more practical, I'm gonna share them and new ones in just this topic. Feel free to scroll down and find all the videos I already uploaded. If you want to know a bit more about me and what to expect, then keep reading. Photography (and design) is part of my life for more than twenty years. I began working in the advertising industry in the 90's and from there I covered many different areas from the creative process to production. Today I mainly do portrait photography, fine art, special assignments and some design projects. In the last years and as a certified trainer, I began to share what I've learned and continue to learn in workshops. I mainly cover Portrait Photography, Black & White, Digital Workflow and Retouching. For the love of sharing my passion about photography, I decided to start making video tutorials and this is the reason I end up here. The amazing software the Affinity Team made gave me the enthusiasm we normally have when we get a new toy. For me it's been a fantastic experience and discovery of new ways of doing the same things in a different, and many times better, way. And this experience is what I want to share with you. This is also the reason I'm going to cover more the Affinity apps in a photography scenario. But you can expect more, a lot more... I'll also be covering photographic tips and techniques and other software that I find relevant to my/our work. This is the case of Capture One Pro that will have also a special feature. Apart from this I'm also preparing some "extras" but that's for another time What to keep in mind: Every time I make a tutorial where I create a special resource, like a macro, a brush, a style, etc. I'll share it for free. You just need to follow the video tutorial or blog post to see the download links. Some tutorials also have a related post in my blog with more details. You can check it here: (available in Portuguese and English): http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/ The tutorials are made in Portuguese but they have English subtitles. Nevertheless I make them in a very easy to follow pace. For that reason they are suitable for both beginners and advanced users. The list I have for upcoming tutorials is long but if you have a specific topic you would like to be covered just let me know. You never know if your request is my next tutorial. This was the case of the Glow Effect video. I'm going to share them chronological so the new ones will be in the end of this topic. Finally my idea is to share tutorials on a regular basis so feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be the first one to know about it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxdrAaW4Zr9lYktQmt5O4VA You can also subscribe to my Blog where you can find other topics: http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/ Sorry if I made this introduction to long, but it was important for me to share this. I hope you'll find each tutorial a useful resource and also a source of inspiration.

  8. While I'm on a roll, I figured I may as well post some more recent photography edited in Photo ;) Some of these you may recognise from the video tutorials: Lone Purple by James Ritson, on Flickr One of those nice surprises you get sometimes, I didn't think much of this photo until I started experimenting with blend modes - at which point it became very moody and striking. Spinning Out by James Ritson, on Flickr An abstract long-exposure shot of a spinning record. I was shooting some video for a personal project and decided to grab a few stills too. Monsal Tunnel by James Ritson, on Flickr A very wet day in Derbyshire, which kind of spoiled the view over Monsal Dale. There was this tunnel, however, which is really atmospheric with all the reflections from the damp areas. Sugar Factory At Night by James Ritson, on Flickr Shot at night, the initial image lacked impact until I brought in some brush work and blend modes - this resulted in the Creative Painting tutorial, where you can enhance colours in images with artificial lighting. Robin Hood Hotel by James Ritson, on Flickr A disused hotel building in Newark (Nottinghamshire), and I've brought some colour into the sign using brush work with blend modes (mainly Overlay, Reflect and Screen). That's all for now - just wanted to share some work, hope you find it interesting!
  9. In this tutorial I cover how to create a winter scene using channels selections and a few more tricks. This is also the first part of the tutorial - How to Create Good Looking Snow. ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGbCcpIyZYA The language in the video is portuguese with english subtitles. Hope you enjoy the video :) Pedro
  10. Combining text with images is always a challenge. Most of the examples and work I see uses a destructive method and if sometimes it's not a big deal, others we need to do it all over again. Is this tutorial I show you how you can combine both in a non-destructive way. You'll keep all the editing functionalities of texts, shapes, filters, adjustments and layers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sqT5qHq2f0 The language in the video is portuguese but this time I add english subtitles. Hope you enjoy the video :) Pedro
  11. When I started to work with the first beta versions of Affinity Photo, I knew my Photoshop days were over. I can't say enough good things about Affinity Photo even if not everything is perfect (yet). So, for 2017 I decided to start to do free tutorials about how I work with it, and how I face the challenges of creating work that in Photoshop you normally do in a different way. This is my first tutorial and is about how you can create realistic snow with a custom brush made entirely in Affinity Photo. It works very well to create from snow storms to soft falling snow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlxXqCCx9AM You can also go to my blog and download the brush I created in the video and also another one for more light snow. http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/branca-leve-e-fria/ The language in the video is portuguese (and in the blog) but I'll try to ad english subtitles if requested. Nevertheless it's very easy to follow all the steps I show. Finally the idea is to do a tutorial more or less every week and I'll try to share it here with all the forum members. But if you want to be the first to know about upcoming tutorials, I invite you to subscribe my newsletter and youtube channel. Hope you enjoy the video :) Pedro
  12. Hi everyone, I recently need to adjust lots of those kind of product. I wanna make the background almost pure white and raise the contrast to highlight the product itself. Do you have any suggestion? Thank you first. The ideal effect is like this.
  13. Hi everyone. I recently switched from PS to Affinity Photo, absolutely loving it. My only issue is the lack of retouching tutorials for high fashion portraits, I am still learning the ropes with Affinity, so any links to tutorials or tips on things like contouring, ect, would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Street Photography & Affinity Photo

    Hi all, back at it again, for those who know me i've worked on a lot of tutorials for both Affinity Designer & Photo, i've also shared a lot of my design work, menus, comic strips etc. I also have a deep love for photography especially what's know as Street Photography. Was out in Shaftesbury Avenue in London at the weekend and managed to capture this fine young gentleman, pretty sure he's in the wrong line of work. Anyway, I shot this on my Panasonic G7, Samyang 50MM and edited of course in none other than the app called Affinity Photo.... Allan

    Tomatoes on my fridge

    This look was originally created using a preset in LR a while back. Thought I'd manually try and recreate this look in Affinity Photo. Actually, I think the result is a lot a lot better than the preset. Tomatoes on my fridge splash of water from the sink and light from the kitchen window, amazing results compared to the original. Impressed with the way Affinity handled this for me and love the look achieved. Inspiration is all around us, this was one of the first I took when I got my camera and still one of my favs. I was just wandering around the flat looking for something to snap and decided to open the fridge and grab these out, think they're called Piccolo Tomatoes go get some they're delicious... :) Going to attempt to go back to Affinity Photo and re-edit some of my favs... will post them.

  16. Does anyone have a quick guide about printing using Affinity Photo? I have tried to print using it, but I have not achieved my desired results. I am using a Canon ip8720, and an iMac v. 10.11.3. Thank you! J/P
  17. I have photographed this lady a long time ago, now I've edited the image with AP :)

    Portrait + Affinity Photo

    Recently I had a client for a portrait shoot. She is an actress and someone really talented and full of crazy ideas. The resulting images where very good and but I wanna do something different so I played a bit with Affinity Photo and this is the result.
  19. alanthompson.co.nzHi, i'm taking some time to write this so please consider it. 1) There is an opportunity with the axing of Aperture to get a whole lot of clients. Most use it as the RAW developer is just so good. i do. Good exposure limits tonal quality, hence ETTR. Aperture recovers the highlight detail the best via winding back the exposure. This gives better tonal detail in shadows. So the really have a look at how Affinity does this. A recovery slider like Adobe etc really is a joke as it just turns the brightness down. True detail is recovered with the exposure slider. 2) Don't pre adjust our RAWs when opening. Adobe RAW 2012 pre adjusts your images and especially ETTR when opening them. You cane even undo what they have done. This is incredibly arrogant, just stunningly stupid. It neglects the fact that correct exposure in digital limits tonal range. it's just physics. 3) Don't allow computer nerds to dictate. Ask some photographers, not amateurs, actually people that understand the physics. 4) Make you software able to record and play actions like Photoshop does. It's one thing i miss in Aperture. 5) Its very unlikely you will be able to complete head to head with Lightroom & Photoshop in the sort term, even though the Lightroom RAW uses the 2012 Adobe version which pre-adjusts your RAWs. So make your RAW developer able to be used as a plugin, I would use it if it works as well as Aperture RAW engine, even the Capture 1 version. 6) get some Photographers on your side, if you do, we tell everyone and give you free promotion as we are passionate about our art and the quality of how software treats our work. lastly, here's some links I would recommend, probably begs you to have a look at as it will help, also what the guygowan.com videos. As said, you have an opportunity to take the market in RAW development as Adobe and Apple seem to have no interest in real photography. https://luminous-landscape.com/expose-right/ http://www.guygowan.com/focus https://alangraemethompson.wordpress.com/2015/01/17/the-disaster-of-adobe-raw-2012-developer/
