JPEGmini

JPEGmini is a great utility for making your images smaller so they take up less space on your computer or for transmission online, all the while ensuring no quality is lost.

I started using JPEGmini a couple of years ago and have recently upgraded to JPEGmini Pro because my newer camera, the Canon 5DsR, has a 50 megapixel sensor and JPEGmini (non-pro version) has an upper limit of 50 megapixels. 

The folks who make JPEGmini are adamant that this reduction does nothing to affect the quality of the image and that the resulting file can still be used for printing, after all, it has done nothing to affect the pixels that make up the image. What JPEGmini does is removes a lot of "junk" data from the file, reducing the file size, often my more than 50%.

OneLight 2.0

Zack Arias' "OneLight 2.0" is a pretty cool video workshop. Zack doesn't play favourites with tech, using many cameras and a few different methods of connecting to his one light.

As photographers I think we overthink our setups sometimes and one thing OneLight shows us is that you can do great things with the one light and a few different modifiers. And they don't have to be expensive modifiers.

Photo Shoot: You Yangs

We're blessed to have a site like the You Yangs on door step, we're excited to be going here for the day. It is hoped we'll be able to coordinate this visit with the activities of the local Mountain Bike group and if we can organise it, we'll have a session of photographing the riders as they move through the bush on the purpose-made mountain bike tracks available in the You Yangs. But even if that doesn't come off, we'll explore our local wilderness and capture it in the glory the You Yangs provide.
