Ok, two weeks to cover. Its been busy here in the studio, so we're gonna jump right in! We start with last Monday where Joseph showed us how to use the High Resolution mode in the LUMIX G9 for a long exposure shot. If you've got access to a G9, and a long exposure shot in mind that you would want to make a large print of, ten this is an episode you'll want to watch. Wednesday's show helped us understand how LUTs work and how to make them for yourself. And on Friday, we weighed the pros and cons of using noise reduction when shooting in RAW.

A viewer asked if you could combine the long exposure mode photography (to get a blurry waterfall, for example) with the LUMIX G9 High Resolution mode. The easy answer is YES... but the details may surprise you.

Have you ever wondered how to build your own LUT for video editing, or what it even is? It's actually quite easy. If you're not familiar with color grading or correcting, a Lookup Table is a file that converts colors in an image based on a mathematical formula.

Your digital camera has a Long Exposure Noise Reduction feature. But does it make a difference if you're shooting RAW?

Now for this week! Monday's show was a three part show (four if you include the post-show Q&A). Our friends over at the DVEStore sent over a reflecmedia key screen set. The LiteRing with the chromatte fabric allows for quick switching between using green or blue to key. Check it out. It's really cool… (but unfortunately not cheap).

We hope everyone has a great weekend! You can catch us on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 9:30am PT for the LIVE Photo Moments

This incredible green or blue screen technology, reflecmedia, is nothing short of amazing! The special screen is chromatte fabric, designed to reflect the color emitted by the LiteRing back at the camera. Special thanks to DVEStore for supplying the gear for today's show.
Today we're having a chat with Chris Smith, founder of the Out of Chicago Photography Conferences, to learn about the origins and intentions of the conference, what's happening at June's Summer Conference in Chicago, and what the future holds for Out of Chicago! Want to attend the Summer Conference?
