So, rather inevitably, as the Jubilee weekend rolls around, the sunshine has well and truly disappeared and the cloudy drizzle had arrived (well, in Birmingham anyway, congratulations if the sun is shining you…).
Anyway, how many of you are attending some street parties, or, more importantly, are designated photographer for the event?
If so, you may want to make sure you have these 3 essential items with you to ensure you take the best picture every time and image edit in confidence.
- X-Rite ColorChecker Passport
This should be the first thing you take with you on any shoot – whether in the studio, or outside. The passport offers first hand camera DNG profiling and RAW workflow editing. It consists of three photographic targets: White Balance Target for accurate control, Classic Target consisting of 24 patch colours references for creating camera profiles, and a Create Enhancement Target for highlight and shadow details.
- Datacolor Spyder4Express monitor calibrator
If you don’t “colour manage”, a monitor calibrator (to ensure colour is displayed accurately on your monitor) is a great place to start. The Datacolor Spyder4Express is the ideal ‘beginners’ calibrator for a single monitor which is simple and affordable.
- Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2
Creating Black & White images just got a whole lot easier. Black and white images immediately carry a timeless, classic feel – perfect to capture the jubilee moment.
The above are a sure-fire way to ensure you capture your Jubilee images accurately, and edit them afterwards in confidence.
And, to celebrate the Jubilee, we’ll be giving you free delivery on eligible orders this weekend – starting this afternoon!
