Downloading Capture One Pro 8

In preparation for January and beginning to use the Phase One camera system you ought to be downloading the Capture One software, installing on your Mac & getting a feel for how it works.

Here’s how to do it….

Go to the download page of the Capture One URL

Screen Shot 2015-07-31 at 14.38.30

Then add your email address as prompted and click the download button. The file should go to your downloads folder then open it up and copy to the ‘Applications’ folder.

When you open Capture One for the first you’ll see this dialogue box…

Capture One initial dialogue box

Select the ‘Run DB’ option. This will allow you to process the RAW files that the Phase generates but not those created by a third party camera such as a Nikon or Canon.

Remember that the Phase doesn’t generate anything but RAW’s!

When running Capture One make a point of quitting any unnecessary applications otherwise you may find that you machine crashes.

My opinion of Capture One, for what it’s worth – it’s the business! I find it easy and intuitive to use.

Wayland’s Smithy – mixed lighting

Adjacent to the Ridgeway, on the chalk downland above the Vale of the White Horse and under 2 miles walk from Uffington Castle and the White Horse itself. This shoot required carrying almost 60kgs of photographic equipment half a mile (0.8kms) from the car – surely one of the over-riding reasons why I took up this profession?

Details: Phase One c/w IQ160, 35mm, ISO 200, 1/4sec , f12

The difference between these two images is purely time. They are 5 minutes apart and in that time the ambient light level dropped by over 2 f-stops as the next rain storm approached.

Again the versatility of working with the Phase One & this time shooting tethered direct into a Mac enabled me to set-up, light & shoot all of this in just 3 frames. My intention was to frame this ancient chamber tomb with the silhouettes from the beech trees whilst lighting the the tomb entrance in particular in such a way to lead the eye inwards and add to the mystery of the place. Lit with a combination of Lumydine and Elinchrom Ranger lights supplied by TFC in London. Legend says (amongst other things I’m sure) that if you’re a traveller whose horse looses a shoe then leaving it overnight here will mean that when you return at dawn it will have been reshod by Wayland himself.

Two other essential tools to me on this shoot where:
