What I Wanted Out of Capture One
August 24, 2016 02:45 PM PDT
Rather than be a critical about Capture One shortcomings, I look at this question from the other direction. What the hell did I want out of Capture One?

Philadelphia is not part of New England.
Listen past the point when I prematurely end the podcast. There's a "post script" portion to the podcast.
I'm going to stop saying "you know", you know?
Wow, there's a really rough learning lesson at the end of the podcast. Brutal. Charles you dream killer, you.

Please forgive me for sounding tired and drowsy. It's a little early for podcasting (apparently). I'll try not to fire up the recorder at 8AM anymore.
In this podcast I talk about philosophy of shooting. And Tabatha's critique of my philosophy of shooting. Her conclusion was that I had no philosophy. If you can get through the groggy retelling of the premise, hopefully you'll be handsomely rewarded with some insight to my style of shooting.
And handsomely.Capture One (Part III)

My 30-day trial is over. Now I have to make a decision. Do I buy it or not? My sentiments have shifted over the full 30 days and the answer might surprise you.

Ken Scott from Digital Transitions invited me to come check their Phase One cameras. Here are my thoughts on my drive over. Then some thoughts on the DJI Phantom 4.Video and Drones

5 years ago I went into the local hobby shop to inquire about an RC helicopter capable of handling a DSLR payload. Sans camera and 2nd operator the estimate topped $8k. I failed to mention this in the podcast but this is probably the starting point of it all.
Some more background information for you to consider. All the cool "flying shots" in all the videos I've ever done were shot with either long depth of field or failing continuously while racking focus and increasing/decreasing shooting distance. Which is to say, you either got a non-cinematic look, or we had to shoot the same shot over and over again because we couldn't rack focus while moving.
I failed to mention this in the podcast as well.
The rest of the stories in the podcast hold up, but keep these things in mind when I talk about technologies and drones etc.
Looking at my profile pic for this podcast, I could have shot something even better with a drone.Morning Stock

This podcast was supposed to come out before Bait and Switch (Part I) but I released them out of order.

Nearly a year ago, I told you guys a story about a model who pulled a fast one on me. She agreed to shoot nudity in our texts and then when I arrived to our shoot she reneged on our agreement. (Rules of Engagement and True Intentions http://lucima.podomatic.com/entry/2015-07-29T11_47_11-07_00)
So it happened again. Except the outcome was totally different. What changed? How do I feel this time? What is the effective difference between the last time this happened and this time?Capture One Impressions (Part II.5)

Talking about gripes! Philosophical ones at least.
What accounts for the different look of the new images created with Capture One as part of the workflow?

In this podcast, I delve a little deeper into Capture One and talk about the specific differences that comprise of the tangible visible difference that I asked about in the Facebook Workshop Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/185656974814125/) . Here are the notes:
