Tutorial - How to remove all dust spots from a sky in Photoshop

Hi there,

my Name is Rainer and I'm a architectural photographer from Germany. I know this is not the architectural group but I thought it would fit in here better. I want to share with you my technic on how I remove all dust spots from a sky in photoshop. I don't know if this is already a well known technic or if there are other...

First self-portrait DSLR

Hi all

Last night I was trying to achieve some low-key portraits of myself. Did some adjustments on LR too.

I was using a bedroom lamp and a house light. I'm from Brazil and it's not cheap to find gear here... I used a Nikon D3300 (first DSLR)

What do you guys think? All comments are welcome

Round and round

Like any human being I woke up one day and thought : why the hell not go even further.
Then I went back to a 5-year-old-on-the-eve-of-Christmas state of mind. Playing around with the ringlights. At first I thought they might be too distracting. Then I remembered I was 5 years old and distraction became part of it all. Curious to have a...

Would love your thoughts!

Caught these at a tiny beach not far from my home the other day. It was a hazy day and the water wasn't giving me the color I would've liked so I decided to play with a B and W conversion. I wanted make the subject pop a little more and add a little more drama to an otherwise bland day.

Would love your thoughts!

Old 70-200mm 2.8

Hey Guys, I lately purchases an old (over 15 years) 70-200mm 2.8 L, the glass is perfect with no scratches but I was concerned after a shooting that I had that I couldn't get sharp pictures (Little blurry) and I don't know if it's cause by the weight and the shakes or does the aging affect the lens quality.

First Time Automotive Photography

Hello everybody,

my name is Patrick Schäfer, I'm 27 years old and live in germany.
A couple of days ago a friend of mine asked me if I would photograph a car he and a friend have been restoring for the last 3 years.
Since I have never photographed cars before I said sure, but told him not to expect much.
After...

VSCO Drops TIFF Support?

I've been shooting with the Moment App for a few weeks using the 18mm lens on my iPhone and I love it. I opted to shoot hi-res TIFFs in the Moment App settings because I'm a compression geek and loving taking up space on my iPhone.

But I noted that VSCOcam crashes when I try to import any file into VSCOcam to edit, even JPEGs when it...

Inaccurate internal level - Canon 5DS - anyone else have this problem?

TL:DR - My 5DS viewfinder level is off by a degree or two vertically - anyone else experiencing this?

I use the internal level whenever I'm shooting on a tripod. It's super quick and easy to use, especially with a geared head. Quickly set up the shot, look through the viewfinder and activate the level, then fine tune the knobs on the...

Tutorial - How to remove all dust spots from a sky in Photoshop

Double reflections

Hey guys, I was playing around with a few ideas yesterday with a friend who is a jewelry designer. I was using a piece of plexiglass and knew that there was a chance for a double refection, but I didn't realize how much it was going to bug me. (trying to post a pic for reference, but the uploader is struggling with even a 250kb file for some...

Panda

Took this shot at Oceanpark in Hong Kong. I would love some CC. I personally debating whether the green in the water behind him is distracting and whether or not I should go in and desaturate the colors. Feel free to be really critical. Thanks everyone in advanced.
