The Luminous Landscape Guide to Image Quality

With Michael Reichmann & Jeff Schewe


Maximize the Image Quality of every shot you take!

This download video tutorial identifies the key factors that lead to exceptional in-camera image quality – or lack of it:

What should be included and what should be excluded; what techniques should be used and what pitfalls to avoid.

This is not only a tutorial on software techniques but the distillation of the practical knowledge and experience of two life-long working photographers: Michael Reichmann & Jeff Schewe.

Know what to look for before pressing the shutter release and know what to look for when first reviewing your pictures.

Michael & Jeff discuss & demonstrate the effects on Image Quality of:

- Resolution

- Image Stabilization

- Tripod Use

- Mirror Lock-up & Cable release

- High ISO

- Expose to the Right (ETTR)

- High Dynamic Range Technique (HDR)

- Noise and its removal

- Lens Diffraction

- Focus Bracket Technique

- Panoramas & Stitching

- Seeing beyond the Camera Defaults

- Selection Editing

This is not your usual screen grab with voice over style tutorial. This is a Live multi-camera video shot in a studio with professional production values, produced by award winning cinematographer and editor Chris Sanderson.
