May 17, 2016. London, UK. – Anthropics Technology today announced the launch of LandscapePro, the industry’s first intelligent landscape photo editing software, available in standalone and Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Elements plug-in editions. The new software radically simplifies and speeds up outdoor and nature photo retouching. It includes landscape relighting, sky replacement, 3D depth estimation, a depth of field simulator, distance controls, intelligent selection tools, and photo-adaptive controls among other powerful features. With one-click presets and targeted editing available, users can create beautiful landscapes in seconds.
 
LandscapePro is a new way to enhance pictures that rises to the challenges and nuances of landscape photography. It assumes no prior knowledge or technical skills, and photographers can create unique, dramatic effects quickly. The new product comes from the makers of the award-winning retouching software PortraitPro and PortraitPro Studio with a plug-in mode for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Apple Aperture.
 
“Inspired by the success of Anthropics’s PortraitPro software, we are delighted to introduce a new product to help photographers expand their creativity and take landscape retouching to the next level,” said Andrew Berend, CEO, Anthropics. “LandscapePro offers an innovative and easy way to create stunning landscape photography, and can be used by novices or experienced photographers alike. As its intelligent controls uniquely adapt to the features of each photo, it enables photographers to do incredible things with their outdoor photos simply by using sliders.”
 
Key FeaturesEasily enhance landscape photos. LandscapePro contains a host of unique tools to enable anyone to create beautiful scenic photographs.
 
  • Intelligent selection tools.
  • Unique editing controls that adapt to the photo.
  • Easy-to-use slider interface.
  • No technical skills required.
  • LandscapePro Studio handles RAW files and can be run as a Photoshop, Lightroom and Elements plug-in.
Expand your creativity. Create unique, breathtaking scenes. LandscapePro effects are specifically tailored to landscape photography.
 
  • Landscape relighting. Lighting adjustment to fit any creative goals: change light source, temperature, time of day, or go from dawn to sunset. Note how the side lighting brings out the texture on the ground.
  • Instant sky replacement with presets. The unique sky controls enable photographers to replace sky, change clouds, or cast cloud shadows. Note how the change in sky has automatically relit the ground.
  • Cloud and atmosphere adjustment. Tools to manipulate skies by separately adjusting the clouds and the atmosphere behind them.
  • 3D depth estimation. A unique, easy-to-use depth of field simulator respects 3D objects in the scene. As easy as using a single slider.
  • Distance controls. Change colors in the image depending on the distance to the camera – make distant objects bluer, highlight the middle distance, or add fog.
  • Landscape-specific tools for dealing with common issues such as selecting small patches of sky behind trees.
  • Color adjustment tools targeted at common objects in landscapes, e.g. tools to make grass look lush, change the color of the sea, or to make sand golden.
  • One-click presets such as wet sand, stormy water, red sunset, lush trees.
  • Automatic area selection. Tag areas as sky, trees, buildings, grass, sand, rock, water and the selection will be applied instantly.
  • Targeted editing. Specially designed controls for different areas, e.g. change clouds to stormy or add thunder clouds, adjust waves, or add sunrise reflection to the sea.
  • Whole picture and individual object enhancements. Transform the whole photo instantly or use a new workflow where you select several objects in your scene first, before editing.
Editions
 
  • LandscapePro Standard – dedicated landscape photo editing.
  • LandscapePro Studio – handles RAW files, 48 bit per color TIFFs, supports different color spaces, and can be run as a plug-in for Photoshop, Lightroom and Elements.

To be perfectly frank, I wasn't terribly impressed with the side-cancelling sound of the MKE 440 in B&H's traffic demonstration. However, the indoor demonstration was a different story. When comparing the MKE 440 to a traditional "single barreled camera-mounted stereo shotgun mic," the difference in sound quality was definitely noticeable. The MKE 440 produced a better voice recording while allowing for a decent, pleasing balance with ambient sound. [Sean]
 
From the B&H YouTube channel:
 
We're taking a look and a listen to the Sennheiser MKE 440 camera-mounted directional stereo shotgun microphone. Designed to focus the stereo field on what's actually in the camera lens, we put it to use recording speech in the B&H Superstore and a musical performance in a traffic island on Manhattan's glorious West Side Highway.
 
B&H has the Sennheiser MKE 440 Shotgun Microphone available for preorder.

A wedding can be a nerve-wracking event, not only for the bride and groom, but also for the photographer. If you've shot a wedding in the past 5 years, you've probably lost more than a couple of great shots because of snap-happy smartphone photographers.
 
In a recent B&H Explora article – Strategies for Handling Wedding Guest Photographers – Jill Waterman explores techniques you can use to minimize the risk of missed moments because of eager guests attempting to get the same shot.
