From the Phlearn YouTube Channel:
 
In today’s episode, we give you the gift of facial hair! Whether for fun or for professional retouching, creating hair can always come in handy.
 
Creating a custom brush: Step One
 
The first and possibly most important step is to make one single hair with the brush tool. This hair should be as perfect as possible and match the other hairs on the face, because it will become the custom brush. If you want to create stubble, simply make the brush a little smaller to resemble a single spot of stubble.
 
Create a white background around the hair by using the marquee tool. Then, after selecting the boxed hair, go to Edit - Define Brush Preset. After it is saved, you can open it in the brushes panel.
 
Creating a custom brush: Step Two
 
Spend time playing around in the brush menu! Many little adjustments add up to an amazingly realistic look. Make changes such as increasing the angle jitter, roundness jitter, scattering, opacity, spacing, etc.
 
A Hairier Face
 
When you are satisfied with your custom brush, it’s time to paint! All you have to do is paint on the face where you want the hair to be.
 
Remember: hair is not always the same color, so a good mixture of lights and darks is important when making realistic facial hair. Hold ALT/OPT and sample multiple colors as you go. You can also paint with white to create some highlights.

B&H has Canon's new Video Creator Kits available for preorder.
 
Note: There's apparantly no discount realized by buying the items combined rather than separately. In fact, as these kits don't seem to qualify for rebates right now, you're actually better off buying the individual components rather than the kit and save $200.00 in the process.

From Phase One:
 
Unprecedented Power, Precision and Quality
 
COPENHAGEN, June 23, 2016 – Phase One, creator of the world’s finest open-platform high-end camera systems and professional imaging software, today released Capture One Pro 9.2. Known for its outstanding tethered capture capability, high-quality raw conversion, and precision image editing tools, Capture One Pro is already considered by many to be the only image capture application for the serious professional photographer. The release of version 9.2 aims at a better culling workflow from selections and metadata sources to accelerate editing workflow to new levels.
 
New camera support includes:
  • Pentax K-1
  • Nikon D500
  • Canon EOS M10
  • Canon G5x
  • Canon G7x MkII
  • Canon G9x
Powerful new workflow features include:
  • Access assets quickly and precisely: Select from file list, select by variant position and create album from selection form a large group of improvements under targeted selections;
  • New rate and cull workflow using “Select Set”: Select a number of images for viewer preview, then advance through the browser by the same number. Navigating within the selection to rate and cull makes editing and comparing fast and efficient;
  • Capture One 9.2’s new color management module for Tiffs gives users more accurate preview returned from retouching/round trip applications – making Tiff handling in Capture One better than ever before;
  • Phase One XF camera users can turbocharge focus stacking workflow with a multi-image round trip to the Helicon Focus application. Shoot, organize, group, process and stack -- all in a few clicks;
  • New Shortcut Engine: More functions can be shortcut than ever before! All cursors can now be shortcut, users can navigate the library collections (even when hidden) and shortcut support for the new 9.2 selection methods all help to make the workflow sing.
Pro photographers deserve a strong ally to vanquish workflow issues and give them the most reliable, efficient workflow and performance,” said James Johnson, Software Product manager, “Capture One Pro 9.2 is about workflow, not work!”
 
For more details on all the new and improved features in Capture One Pro 9.2, including new cameras and lenses supported, please go to: www.phaseone.com/ninetwo
 
Availability and Pricing
 
Capture One Pro 9 is available now for the Mac and Windows operating systems from Phase One authorized partners worldwide.

To capture its latest luxery car marketing image, Bently used the same gigapixel image technology that NASA currently uses to compile panoramic images of the Martian landscape to capture a sweeping image of a Mulsanne crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. At its widest (seen above), the bridge appears to the be the main subject of the image.
 
Looking a little closer, we can see a luxery car at the center of the image.
 
Bentley Mulsanne Picture Zoomed In1

The image seen on the Bentley's website is comprised of 697 images and allows you to zoom in all the way to the embroidered logo on the sleek leather seats where you can see every individual thread.
 
Bentley Mulsanne Picture Zoomed In2

Note that I didn't zoom all the way in for the last screenshot shown here. Instead, I opted to keep a bit of the headrest in the shot to provide context for the logo.
 
Want to know more about how photographer Simon Stock (and his team) captured the image? See the behind-the-scenes information here. If you want the Bentley Mulsanne Extended featured in the image, be ready to shell out a little more than $400,000.00.
