Photo Soft Box Pro HD gets significant update

Pho­to Soft Box Pro HD, which I’ve reviewed on my Lifestyle Tech­nol­o­gy blog, just received a great update with fea­tures request­ed by cur­rent users, includ­ing:

  • You can now use your own shapes as dif­fusers!
  • Also on our new site we will have a new FREE down­load­able shape a week.
  • Flip and Mir­ror of shapes. This comes in handy if you made your own shape with text and you are reflect­ing it off some­thing.
  • You can turn on and off the black around a shape.
  • More shapes! What is an update with­out more shapes to use as dif­fusers.

Very cool that you can use any image from your Pho­to Roll as a source soft box image. Opens up the pos­si­bil­i­ties.

Learn how to make the light work for you

One thing about being into pho­tog­ra­phy; you quick­ly real­ize that there’s a lot to learn from oth­er pho­tog­ra­phers.

A sub­ject that’s always chal­lenged me has been the con­cept of mak­ing light work for me rather than forc­ing me to adapt to the demands of the light sources.

Learn­ing from oth­er pho­tog­ra­phers through their light­ing dia­grams has helped me bet­ter under­stand how a par­tic­u­lar tool (reflec­tor, barn doors, snoot, etc) should be used to get a spe­cif­ic result.

And recent­ly, I found some things that let me work through the think­ing exer­cise need­ed to cre­ate bet­ter-lit images.

Camera+ gets an update too

It  must be update day for the iOS pho­to app devel­op­ers. Not only did FX Pho­to Stu­dio HD get an update to day, so did Cam­era+

This is a very cool cam­era app for iPhone, though you can use it on the iPad for image edit­ing and shar­ing. One of the neat­est fea­tures on the iPhone is the abil­i­ty to spec­i­fy the zone where the light meter will read, sep­a­rate from the zone where the auto-focus will read.

Here’s what’s new (from the devel­op­ers):

Cam­era+ 2.1: Per­for­mance, sta­bil­i­ty, and robust­ness, oh my!

For Cam­era+ 2.0, we added over 50 awe­some, new fea­tures]. For ver­sion 2.1, we’ve switched gears and worked hard to make the over­all expe­ri­ence of using the app much more plea­sur­able. We made a whole bunch of speed improve­ments so every­thing feels zip­pi­er. We fixed many nig­gling bugs so the app now has a much more sol­id feel to it. And we added many lit­tle fea­tures and user inter­face improve­ments so that it’s much more intu­itive and more of a delight to use.
