MBP-Podcast #118.1 : IMPORANT! Listen to this before Ep#118

It seems that there may be problems caused by the anti-piracy software installed with DxO Optics Pro version 5, so I urge you to hold off on trying the Demo version until we know more. I hope you can still enjoy Episode 118 for now. I will update you again as soon as we get a statement from DxO Labs regarding this. Hopefully we will be able to clear up any problems and continue to enjoy their essentially useful and fun software. If the problems cannont be resolved, we will consider whether or not we should decline the software as a prize for our Assignment Grand Prize winner. If that happens we'll continue to accumulate points until I find another sponsor.

Photo#1392 : Today, partially in answer to a listener's question, I walk you through the options available when buying a Fine Art Print from my online gallery. The main thing to remember is if you aren't sure about the options, choose the defaults. This will always give the best results, and allows me the creative freedom to crop as necessary leaving a tasteful border. Of course you can always contact me with any queries too, and I'm open to specific requests that you can mail in advance or write into the optional comments field when ordering prints.

The software for easy printing of the DOFMaster Hyperfocal Chart can be downloaded from here: http://www.dofmaster.com/ There's also a table at DOFMaster.com with the Circle of Confusion sizes for most digital cameras. This is necessary to calculate the Hyperfocal Distance with most tools if you don't just go with the default for 35mm cameras, which is 0.030mm. See here: http://www.dofmaster.com/digital_coc.html Here is where you can find Jonathan Sach's DOF 1.0, Ephemeris 1.0 and Expose 1.0: http://home.comcast.net/~jonsachs/ Here's a link to the Poll I mention about my plan to release a Soft Hard Copy of the MBP Podcast.

MBP-Podcast #62 : Understanding MTF Charts

MTF Charts available from some manufacturers can be very useful in evaluating a lens you are thinking of buying, but few people really know how to read them. Listen on and you too will be in the know... Let's look at the Canon 50mm F1.4 lens as an example: http://cweb.canon.jp/ef/lineup/standard/ef50_f14/mtf.ht ml Canon provides MTF Charts for almost all of their lenses on all the country sites that I've seen to date. Here's a link to lens pages on the Canon US Web site: http://www.usa.canon.com/eflenses/lineup/index.html He re's a few more examples from the Canon Japan Web site that use Flash so you can resize them to large sizes for easier viewing: http://cweb.canon.jp/ef/lineup/tele_zoom/ef100 _400_f45_56l/mtf.html http://cweb.canon.jp/ef/lineup/super_tele/ef400_f28l/m tf.html Nikon's Japanese Web site does contain MTF Charts for their lenses, although the US site does not seem to.

MBP-Podcast #54 : Reflections - Assignment #4

Photo#612,509,895,1079,243,831,800,547,190 : Today we set the scene for the next assignment on "Reflections". Reflections are found almost everywhere in one form or another, so this should not be difficult to enter, but maybe difficult to win, due to the almost endless possibilities! See the announcement of the Reflections Assignment and key dates here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?t=912 NOTE: I actually said in the Podcast that it will be OK to upload images to the assignment album until the 23rd, but this was a miscalculation. I need to close the album for entries on my 23rd, but this will be the end of the 22nd of October for most of you. Sorry for the confusion. Check the Assignment Rules/Guidelines here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?t=625 The music in this episode was Reflections by Dreamweaver, provided from the PodShow Podsafe Music Network at http://www.music.podshow.com/ Please do take 5 minutes to complete the Listener's survey.

In addition to the main topic, I make a brief comment on the top three placed winners of the Depicting Culture Photography Assignment. Here you can find the final scores. This page will also soon contain an accumulated scores graph for the last three assignments and future episodes until the grand prize is awarded to the participant with the most points in the first year.

MBP-Podcast #50 : Summary and Update Part I - 50th Episode!

Photo#595,584,198,559,1095,717,841 : The MBP Podcast has been running for FIFTY EPISODES!!! :D Kind of to celebrate, but also to summarise and update old issues when applicable, from this week we'll cover some key tips and techniques from the last 49 episodes to date. That's 50 weeks of the Martin Bailey Photography Podcast! I want to thank all of you that keep on listening. One of the things that I constantly hear from listeners is that you appreciate the tips and techniques that you gain from my experiences in photography via this Podcast, that are applicable to your own photography. From today for a few weeks I'm going to take a brief look at each episode to date, and give a brief mention of what was discussed and mention one or two of the main points of that Podcast. I won't be able to cover all the tips and techniques of course. To do that, you need to listen to the original Podcasts. But kind of to celebrate the achievement of reaching the 50th episode, I'm hoping this will be a way to not only condense the main gist of what I've covered so far, but also give new comers a brief outline of what is in the archives. There are going to be many more pearls hiding in the old episodes, but with so much listening time needed to catch up, it's hard to think of where to start. Hopefully this will give you some pointers. As I go through them, I'll also talk about how things have changed since I first spoke about any particular tip or technique as necessary, so it'll be kind of like a condensed update too. I'll be as brief as possible, but I'm still going to need two or three more weeks to cover everything to date, along with updates, so please bear with me. Hopefully it will be worthwhile. Also, CONGRATULATIONS to Graham Morgan! Graham has just had an amazing double win in the Australian Wildlife Photography Competition with two amazing images.

I feel confident enough at this point in time to talk to you about what I know, and I'll number these first episodes parts I and II.

MBP-Podcast #38 : Capturing and Creating Mood

Photo#8,722,981,729,380,985 : Mood, or atmosphere is often an intangible substance that can sometimes be difficult to put into words, and often more difficult to capture on film. I talk about some of the occasions that I think I captured the mood as it was or created it in some way. Here is the link to Fred Miranda's online shop for digital filters that I mention. https://www.fredmiranda.com/shopping/affiliate.php?id=4 1 Also, here's a link to the tutorial on creating black and white images in Photoshop that Wayne posted on our Web site.

MBP-Podcast #36 : A Few Filter Tips

Photo#26,984,62,154,185,935 : There are still certain physical filters that I use and some that I am now shying away from in favour of Photoshop. Listen on for details, along with some real-world examples. In recent years, digital photography has done away with the necessity for some filters, such as daylight filters and warm-up filters etc as most colour correction is now taken care of much more easily by the White Balance feature on our cameras. Check out the Cokin filter systems here http://www.cokin.com/ or here http://www.cokin.co.uk. Here is the discussion I mentioned in which bksecret (Landon) raised some great tips for when using a Polarizer. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?t=684 And here is the topic on protector filters, discussing whether we even need them, and whether or not you should buy the best, or go for the cheapest you can, as these are sometimes a throw away item. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?t=677  I also mentioned using a PL filter to reduce the reflection in water in Podcast # 15. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/podcasts.php?dt= ti&ep=015#Ep015 Here's a link to the new Podcast "Light" page I mentioned at the end of this episode.

MBP-Podcast #31 : Contrasting (Complimentary) Colours

Photo#56,220,714,510,479,619,603 : Although including similar colours makes for well balanced images, using contrasting colours can make for dramatic and often pleasing images. Let's take a look at the positions of these colours in a colour wheel for proof of why some images work. Take a look at the Colour Wheel I've added to the site at the below link. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/colourwheel.php This Colour Wheel was developed by Jemima Pereira though I've modified it slightly such as adding one more colour to the main list, so that you can see four full pairs of colours etc. Thanks Jemima for your technical skill in putting this together and your generosity in making this available for others to learn from. http://jemimap.ficml.org/style/color/wheel.html MBP Photography Assignment Rules: 1) Only ONE image per member. You can physically upload more but all but your last upload WILL be removed. You can find the "Contrasting Colours" Assignment Album here: http://www.mbpgalleries.com/thumbnails.php?album=93 2) Only NEW images please. The idea of the assignment is to shoot with a purpose. Going through old stock and finding something appropriate will not help you to grow as a photographer. Wherever possible ensure that you Save As in Photoshop, not save for Web, as Save As preserves the images EXIF data, so that you can prove that you shot the image after today, April 3rd, 2006. 3) At a certain date, probably the end of April, the album will be locked to prevent further uploads and the voting function will be turned on for a set period of probably one or two weeks. Comments and voting will be off until that point. 4) All members will be able to vote just once for each image and voting will be possible for a week or so. 5) Martin will decide the actual winner while bearing the vote counts and trends in mind. Martin's decision will be final and not negotiable. 6) The prize for the winner will be an original print of your choice from Martin's main gallery at http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/ Also, please do take 5 minutes to complete the Listener's survey.

MBP-Podcast #24 : Teleconverters and Extension Tubes

Photo#697,575,601 : In this episode I talk about Extenders as Canon terms them, or Tele-converters as most other camera manufacturers term them, and also about Extension Tubes, which are similar to teleconverters but behave differently and have different applications. If you didn't listen to episode 23 yet, we basically learned that the longer the lens, the more prone to camera shake your images will be, and I mentioned a few ways we can minimize the risk of this, including the rule of thumb I use, which is using the focal length you are shooting at as the slowest advisable shutter speed. If you are not so confident with this, it might be a good idea to go back to episode 23 first. If you are OK with this I would not say it is essential to listen to these Podcasts sequentially. There are various reasons why you might consider investing in a teleconverter. They are a relatively cheap way to increase the focal length of your existing lenses. This obviously is going to save you money, as you don't need to buy the longer focal length lens. Also, it saves you carrying around the additional weight of multiple lenses. Sometimes you simply want to get even closer to your subject, even with an expensive super-telephoto lens. Whereas we use extenders or tele-converters to increase the focal length of the lens without affecting the minimum and maximum focusing distances, extensions tubes enable you to shorten the minimum focusing distance so that you can focus on subjects much closer to the lens. It is important to note that the maximum focusing distance is greatly reduced also, often to the point where the lens cannot realistically be used for anything other than very close work while the extension tube is attached. The degree to which the focusing distances are reduced depends on the lens you are using it with. Tune in to find out more about Extenders/Teleconverters and Extension Tubes.

As usual I have a number of real-world examples of my results when using a super-telephoto lens. Next week I'll be following on from this episode, talking about Extenders as Canon terms them, or Teleconverters and extension tubes.

Here is a link to a video tutorial that will allow you to see the screens I walked you through in last weeks Episode on monitor calibration. I couldn't show you my screens, as I use the Japanese version of the software, so it wouldn't be much use to most of you.

They suggest that you can have profiles made at http://www.colormanagement.com/ for under $100. The site also has lots of information on colour management, so it might be worth checking out even if you aren't looking to get a profile made. If you don't mind fighting the Japanese screens, you can still download profiles for a number of paper/printer combinations here: http://www.pictorico.co.jp/support/index02.htm For links to photos etc visit http://www.martinbaileyphotograhy.com/podcasts.php

MBP-Podcast #19 : Dramatic Sunsets and Visualization

Photo#825,827,829,190,20 : Sunsets are probably one of the most photographed natural occurrences. So much so, that we need to make them dramatic to set them apart. Also, being able to visualize a photo in advance will give you the edge when it comes to choosing your shoot location. When the sky starts to turn orange then red as the sun goes down, it can make an amazing spectacle, and your emotions will run riot and you might not think much about what you are shooting. To make your image convey the emotion you want to, try to find a dramatic setting to capture your sunset shots, and set them apart. Some sunsets are so spectacular that they will work with nothing else in the screen, but usually you'll want to be somewhere that will allow you to maximize on this amazing event. In this episode I'll introduce some of my sunset shots, including my first good one from 1993, up to a number of shots from Jan 9th 2006, and how I went about getting these shots.

MBP-Podcast #18 : Winter Photography Part II

Photo#809,810,818 : Following on from Episode 17 on Winter Photography, in this episode I mention a few things I forgot and some things that site members brought up. Also, I show some more images made in sub-zero conditions, and a new Gallery Web site for MBP Member's. The following link will take you to seventeen shots from a day shooting from the shore of the Inawashiro Lake in Fukushima Prefecture here in Japan: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/thumbnails.php?a lbum=search&search=Inawashiro_Dec2005 The down mittens that I use as over-gloves that I mention in this episode are made by a French company call Valandré. I couldn't find a link to a Web Valandré page but here is a link to the gloves in an online store: http://www.guideschoice.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idprod uct=478 The following link will display the Help document I created to show examples of BBCode to embed thumbnails and image from the new MBP Member Galleries site I've just set up for members to showcase and discuss your own work. Ideally photo discussions will take place using the comments feature in the Member Galleries, but use this BBCode when you want to discuss images to make a point or ask advice etc. in the forum. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?t=376 For links to photos etc visit http://www.martinbaileyphotograhy.com/podcasts.php

MBP-Podcast #17 : Winter Photography and e-Cards

Photo#779,780,782,785,787,793 : Winter photography can be very rewarding, but also dangerous for the unprepared. Here's a number of shots that might not look out of place on the front a Christmas Card, and some tips on how to keep your camera going and stay safe in harsh weather. The following link will take you to all twenty shots from the few hours of shooting I did in the Shirakawagou village on Dec 17th and 18th, 2005. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/thumbnails .php?album=search&search=Shirakawagou_Dec2005 Shirakaw agou, in the Gifu Prefecture was designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 1995. This idyllic yet harsh snow-belt village contains a multitude of buildings that have what are called Gasshouzukuri roofs. The word Gasshouzukuri literally translated means "built in the shape of praying hands", because the steep sided roofs resemble the shape made when putting two hands together in prayer. You can find maps and other interesting information about the site on Unesco's official Web site. The below link should take you to the Shirakawagou page: http://whc.unesco.org/pg.cfm?cid=31&id_site=734 For links to photos etc visit http://www.martinbaileyphotograhy.com/podcasts.php

MBP-Podcast #16 : Composition - Include an Accent

Photo#71,132,141,182,754,774 : This week I talk about including an accent in your images. When we view images we probe all areas. Add that little extra or compose with this in mind, and your images will have that little touch that once found, will make it stick in the viewers mind. Of course, some images will just explode at us and can fling us into any number of emotional states in an instant. But in addition to this initial response, people want to work for that little extra enjoyment of a work of art. For links to photos etc visit http://www.martinbaileyphotograhy.com/podcasts.php

MBP-Podcast #15 : PL for Water + a Moral Dilemma

Photo#776,777,778 : This week, in addition to talking about using a polarizer to reduce reflection in water, I touch on the controversial topic of whether or not a nature photographer should extend a hand to wild animals in distress or danger. This is a difficult subject indeed, which I can only scratch the surface of here. I've started a poll at the location below to find out your views, and I look forward to hearing from you in the forum too. http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewt opic.php?t=338 Note: Due to some experimentation with my audio gear, there was some background noise through the first half of this week's episode.

MBP-Podcast #13 : Tilt-Shift lens for Surreal Images

Photo#638,639,763,764 : In this episode I talk about how I use my 24mm Canon TS-E Lens to obtain some creative effects, and maybe breath a little life into your Tilt-Shift lens if you think it's only for straightening up buildings in architecture shots. If you use the Tilt capabilities of these lenses to move the focus plan to run at almost 90 degrees from the film plane, in certain circumstances the results will be quite surreal, looking like a macro shot of a model.

MBP-Podcast #12 : Digital Workflow

In this longer than usual episode I walk you through my Digital Workflow, touching on all major aspects, from transferring the image files to my PC, to sharpening for print and backing up files. I explain all the major steps for you to think about including transferring files, how I organize my directories and view by date using third party software. On to rating and selecting my best shots to take further into the workflow and exporting to Photoshop or opening in PhotoShop RAW, and some of the fine tuning I do to the image. I also explain about the different versions I save off, and sharpening for Web or printing, and finally discussing my backup process, though I'm not really happy with this right now. Below are some links I mention in the episode. The Adobe Camera RAW Plug-in version 3.3 Beta does not seem to recognize Canon's new Picture Style settings. I don't know if this is as designed or will be fixed, but you can see some example photos in a post on my forum here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?t=284 Check out the Digimarc MyPictureMarc digital image watermarking technology here: http://www.digimarc.com/mypicturemarc/ For sharpening I use a third party product that is a Photoshop plug-in called PhotoKit Sharpener from Pixelgenius.

MBP-Podcast #11 : Good Planning... Good Luck!

Photo#731,732,733,738 : Good planning is very important, and doing as much as you can to improve your chances of getting the shot is paramount, but at the end of the day, a winning shot may be as much down to luck as it is planning. This week I talk about the first location on my five day Tohoku (North-Eastern) Japan trip, and how I was lucky to get that extra touch for a shot, but was aided by ensuring I'd visit the site twice. Of course, as they say about the lottery, you've got to be in it to win it, so I am a big believer in doing as much planning as possible to hedge your bets, but luck definitely plays a big part in getting your shot.

MBP-Podcast #10 : Exposure and Manual Mode

Photo#287,297,280 : In this episode hear about Exposure, Exposure Compensation, EV (Exposure Value) and the times that I switch to Manual mode when shooting. This is especially useful when shooting high contrast scenes when the subject might move between high contrast areas. Switching to manual is often a little scary, especially until you master exposure. This episode is a bit heavy going, but hopefully will help you to master exposure and give you the push to try manual mode, when necessary. See other shots from the February 2004 Hokkaido shoot here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/thumbnails.php?a lbum=search&search=HokkaidoFeb2004-Travelogue See the Exposure Value or EV table in my forum here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/forum/viewtopic. php?p=164 Using a light meter will help your understanding of exposure, even if your camera has a built in meter. It will also improve the accuracy of your exposures too in some conditions, though not so necessary now that built-in meters are so good. My hand-held light meter is called a Flash Meter VI from Konica-Minolta: http://kmpi.konicaminolta.us/eprise/mai n/kmpi/content/cam/cam_Product_Pages/Flash_Meter_VI Th e winner of October's member award is Marisa Firpi.

MBP-Podcast #9 : Portraiture - I'm trying, OK!

Photo#717,718,721,722,723,724,728 : Following a business trip to India, I've decided to do a Podcast on a subject I'm not so confident with; portraiture. I include some shots from the little free time I had during my trip, explaining my shooting methods, and exposure compensation hints. Predominantly a nature photographer, although I try, I'm not very good at making portraits. The actual photos will speak for themselves, so you can make up your own mind about that, but the actual making of the photos doesn't come very naturally to me. My main problem is that I get a little shy when pointing my camera at people instead of animals or landscapes that don't have the ability to say "No". Afraid that I might upset the person I'm making the photo of, I get a little knotted up. I have included a number of shots in the Podcast, but I uploaded a total of 12 shots from this trip.

MBP-Podcast #8 : Composition - Getting in Close in Landscapes

Photo#682,683,546,545,547 : Although I love a wide sweeping landscape, it is often very effective to get in close, and just cut out a small area of the scene. The human eye has an amazing propensity to zoom in on many areas of a scene in an instant, but we tend to record the whole scene in memory. The areas we zoom in on are those that take our interest. It is up to the photographer to realize where those areas are and record them to film or digital memory. Listen at the end of this week's Podcast for news of a new monthly prize open to forum members. The winner of October's prize, worth around US$160 or 85 UK pounds will be annoucned in Episode 10!

MBP-Podcast #7 : Don't give away your art!

A somewhat controversial subject, but this week I talk about the need to protect yourself and photography as a profession, by learning how to negotiate and stick with negotiation to get your price. It's incredibly tempting to give your work up for free, especially when you think of the amount of publicity you'd be passing up, but if you don't pass it up, you'll be doing nothing more than helping to knock the bottom out of the very market from which you may one day hope to making a living. I've created a page on my site called Recommended Reading, and started with a few titles on pricing photography, invoices and contracts. The page can be found here: http://www.martinbaileyphotography.com/reading.php Als o check out the October 9 episode of Dennis Hays' excellent Podcast, The Secrets of Digital Imaging Audio Magazine, in which Dennis gave some great information on Copyrighting your images.

MBP-Podcast #6 : Composition - Foreground "Boke" or Blur

Photo#559,590,644,673 : Learn how to use Boke or out of focus area of an image to add a dreamy feel to your shots. Plus something to try beforehand to lessen the shock of loosing extra zoom when switching to a full size sensor DSLR with no crop factor, such as the Canon EOS 5D. Following on from my Canon EOS 5D review last week, in reply to a question from a listener, I briefly discuss a possible way to check if you can handle loosing that x1.6 focal length from APS size sensor camera's such as the 20D. The main topic for this episode is using foreground "Boke" or the blurred area of an image to add a dreamy feel to your shots, including four real-world examples. For technical details of Boke, take a look at "Understanding Boke" by Harold M.

Inspiration

Awesome podcast. I found it recently through another photography related podcast and I downloaded all episodes all the way back from podcast one. Some of it is gear related so now it is out of date for me but there is ton of information that is valid regardless of time. Images attached to the podcast are great addition also with clear explanation where to find podcast related links, images etc.. Martins description of how he took photographs, what was his intention and comparing it with outcome is great way how to get insight into photographers mind. His dedication to craft is inspirational and it is obvious he is living and breathing photography. Ill definitely stick around and will be looking forward new episodes. I often found myself turning off the music so I can focus more on what Martin has to say. Well done Martin. I have just registered on your forum as well and hope to become active member there as well. Richard Simko 500px.com/rsimko
