From AdoramaTV:
 
Adorama TV presents Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey.
 
The polarizing filter is possibly one of the most useful things you can own as a photographer. In this video Gavin Hoey shows you how to use a circular polarizing filter to create amazing colors in clear plastic objects.
 
Then follow Gavin in to Photoshop where he combines the best parts of two images before adding a custom made retro texture to the final image
 
Download the custom texture.
 
The-Digital-Picture.com Note:
 
This is one of those neat tricks that can inspire creativity – especially good for a rainy day. After watching the video, I thought I'd try the technique with my own tape. :-)

From Think Tank Photo:
 
Our latest "About A Photograph" film features photojournalist Nick Ut’s story behind his iconic Vietnam War image of a terrified young girl, Phan Thi Kim Phuc, escaping a South Vietnamese napalm bomb attack.
 
In the video, Ut recounts how he had to make an ethical choice between capturing images as a photojournalist and helping this severely burned girl. In the end he did both. He captured one of the most impactful war images in history and was able to take the burn victim forty minutes to Cu Chi hospital.
 
You can read more on what happened that day, here - bit.ly/1idL2g9.
 
Warning: The video (seen here) shows the iconic Vietnam War image of a naked girl running from the remnants of a napalm attack. While the largely ubiquitous image is not something we'd usually share on the site, I decided the laregly unkown backstory of Nick Ut saving the young girl's life was certainly worth sharing. [Sean]

Think Tank Photo released this video in their "About A Photograph" a couple of weeks ago and I simply missed it. I'm glad I stumbled across it this morning. The video reiterates the old adage, "Persistence pays off."
 
From Think Tank Photo:
 
Randy Olson talks to us about how he needed to have his Indian assistant press the shutter for this photograph. Captured when global population hit seven billion, National Geographic commissioned Randy to tell the story.

"This is The-Digital-Picture.com's Weekend Recap for the week ending October 26th, 2013.
 
In the news...
 
On Tuesday, Canon announced the development of firmware updates for the EOS 1D X and 1D C DSLR cameras. The 1D X will receive several AF improvements as well as a feature Bryan’s been requesting for ages – exposure compensation when using Auto ISO.
 
The 1D C firmware update will improve communication between the camera body and EF lenses as well as allow audio recording from Line inputs. The 1D C firmware will be available in November of this year, with the 1D X firmware’s availability scheduled for January 2014.
 
On Wednesday, DxO announced Optics Pro 9. The headline feature in Optics Pro 9 is PRIME denoising. The PRIME algorithm allows Optics Pro 9 to better distinguish between noise and fine details – thereby preserving those details while reducing high ISO noise.
 
DxO allowed me to test drive the software a couple of weeks before its release. I must say, I was quite impressed with Optics Pro 9’s overall user experience in addition to its PRIME noise reduction. DxO Optics Pro 9 is available now at photography retailers.
 
Also on Wednesday, LensRentals announced the first annual Photogeek Geek Photo Contest. A few of the categories include Sharpest Corner, Bokehliciousness & Largest Number of Accessories Between the Lens and the Camera. If that sounds a bit odd to you, then you should really check out the prizes as well! And while you’re on the LensRentals Blog, check out a familiar name in the judges list.
 
On Friday, one of the biggest questions regarding the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM lens was finally answered – its price. The lens will carry an MSRP of $899.00 and will be available in November.
 
In site news and reviews...
 
On Wednesday, Bryan posted his full review of the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens. The lens proved to be a significant upgrade to its predecessor – especially in the areas of autofocus and image quality. For the entry-level price, this lens turns in surprisingly good results. Check out Bryan’s full review for all the details.
 
And, for our deals of the week…
 
On Monday, BigValueInc posted two incredibly good deals on eBay. First, the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM for $639.99. Second, the 5D Mark III for only $2,549.99. Both deals featured free shipping and significant savings compared to traditional retail price.
 
This has been the The-Digital-Picture.com’s Weekend Recap. Thanks for listening, and as always, happy shooting!"
