Lightroom 6 Hands-On Review by


What’s new? What’s great? What’s not so?
My impressions about Lightroom 6:
– What about the promised increased performance and its influence for time lapse photographers?
– What about the new HDR-feature?
– How does the new panorama stiching perform and where are its limitations?
– How usable is the Face Recognition?
– Is the Slideshow module now finally usable considering the latest update?
I will answer to all of these questions in this video.
Enjoy watching!

Still NYC by Ynon Lan

By: Ynon Lan

This year I visited New York for the first time. Throughout my time there I was walking all around the city with my camera. I was looking for a way to portray all the different types of scenery and people that I saw as well as keep the constant energy of the city. I decided to take still photographs and compile them in a video as if they were one flowing motion.

Shot with a Canon 550D and edited on Premiere and After Effects.
All background ambient sounds were recorded on location.

A little more about the process can be found here:

Skyward 4K by Keith Kiska

By: Keith Kiska
Source: presents “Skyward”, a 4K motion time-lapse film that captures some of the most majestic landscapes of America in stunning 4K resolution. Geared up with a Kessler Revolution 2 motorized head and a 5ft CineSlider, Keith Kiska and Kyle Rhoderick spent over 4 years to create this motion time-lapse film.

“This project is the culmination of all of our best nature time-lapses to date. Since we first got our hands on Kessler’s new motorized head 4 years ago, we traveled all over the country for weeks at a time, subjecting our new gear to the harshest conditions we could find, in hopes of getting that perfect time-lapse.”
-Keith Kiska

Dubai Flow Motion by Rob Whitworth

By: Rob Whitworth

My first impression of Dubai was that of super-tall buildings jutting out of the desert sand. However, after 3 months of exploration, research and filming, my lasting impression is of the eternal wonder of the desert and the importance it holds for the Emirati people.

Dubai may be home to the world’s most outrageous skyline but Dubai’s desert dunes and historical creek are where you’ll find its soul.

A special thank you to Dubai Film for making this project possible and for providing the extraordinary access which enabled me to realise this story.
