Not too long ago, standard practice for lighting large spaces involved hauling a lot of heavy equipment into a venue, laying out electrical service lines, creating support stands and scaffolding, and so on. Of course there was also tearing it all down, packing it away, and hauling it off again. Things have changed. It's now possible to carry all or most of the gear you'll need to light a large space in a duffle bag and camera bag, frequently doing it all without touching an electrical outlet and still getting an equivalent or superior result.
 
Join David Saffir and David Tobie as they explore newer methods for lighting interiors using lighting systems adapted from on-camera flash units, purpose-built remote units and triggers. We think you'll be surprised by the possibilities and impressed by the results!
 
An interactive Q&A will take place throughout the webinar to answer any questions you may have.
 
Webinar attendees will have the chance to win a SpyderCHECKR or Metz 44 Flash as well as receive exclusive discounts!

Eric Cheng spent over 10 years mastering underwater photography before deciding to try his hand at aerial videography. Now he’s already turning the industry on its head with a new innovation that allows photographers to capture above-ground footage without the massive expense of a helicopter.
 
With a background in computer science, and having been the previous Director of Photography at Lytro, Eric has a deep investment in the progression of both photography and technology. For his aerial work Eric experimented with an ordinary radio controlled drone and a simple GoPro Hero. The electronic gimbal he created with a friend is what keeps every shot flawless, unaffected by the wind, and absolutely stunning.
 
In this webinar we’ll talk to Eric about this incredible alternative to the traditional aerial photography methods, his work both underwater and above ground, and what gear is involved.
 
Date: Wednesday, October 16th

A photographer should pay special attention to the gear they bring when traveling on safari. It is important to think about the story you’re trying to tell and properly expose the images once they are captured. Color management is just as important in wildlife and nature photography as it is in the studio. Animals seem healthier and friendlier when they’re showcased in warmer tones. It may seem strange, but those who view your images will have more of a connection to your subjects in warmer tones.
 
Join Datacolor Experts David Cardinal and C. David Tobie in a discussion about Safari Photography, cosponsored by Sigma Lenses. David Cardinal, a longstanding Safari organizer and award-winning nature and travel photographer, will share his experience regarding what gear and preparation are critical for a successful safari shoot; including cameras and tripods, with special focus on lenses. Techniques and workflows for safari shooting and tips for creating award-winning images of your own will also be covered. If you've ever considered signing up for a photo safari, or if you are trying to decide what to purchase or pack for your next one, then this is the right webinar for you!
 
An interactive Q&A will take place throughout the webinar to answer any questions you may have.

Perspective and context issues may arise when photographing exteriors, while distortion issues may arise with interiors. Other issues may include scale, vignette, chromatic aberration and color accuracy. Technique is key. Helpful tips focusing on low light images, various HDR options, one-point and multi-point perspective versus elevation and isometric will be shared.

Professional Monitor Calibration for Still & Video
As more and more still photographers move into videography with DSLR cameras the need for color management solutions specific to those output environments has become obvious. X-Rite’s i1Profiler software now includes video presets for popular video formats including NTSC, PAL-SECAM, and Rec. 709. The introduction last year of the new i1Display Pro colorimeter combined with these presets in i1Profiler makes the X-Rite i1Display Pro the perfect solution for calibrating and profiling monitors for video editing and output.
 
When i1Display Pro is combined with X-Rite ColorChecker Targets the combination provides a capture to output solution for video editing that allows exceptional control over white balance in any scene.
 
This brief webinar will review how to access and utilize the video presets in i1Profiler software and will briefly look at use of ColorCheckers in the video footage as a visual reference.

Fine Art Travel Photography with Andy Katz
Travel photographer Andy Katz travels the world to capture amazing images. His photographs are in permanent collections of museums and private collectors the world over. The subject matter that captivates his vision is diverse from landscapes to portraits to still life in color and black and white. Andy uses light, contrast, and color to tell a story of his travels and evoke emotion in the viewer.
 
Andy's work requires critical color management to capture and carry the subtleties of his work from the camera to the print. He uses Sony Alpha 99 and RX-1 to capture the entire nuance in every detail and the depth of every tonality. X-Rite ColorChecker Passport, i1Display Pro, and i1Publish Pro ensures accurate and repeatable reproduction of color and contrast every time.
 
This webinar will discuss traveling with photography equipment, finding the shot in faraway places, composition, using light, and more. Andy will talk about how he communicates with people, listens to their stories, and creates the relationships that allow him to capture beautiful and revealing portraits.
