  1. Hey Tony,
    Slightly off topic. When you're stacking photos to reduce noise by averaging. Is there a benefit to editing the photo before or after averaging the photo (i.e. Should I edit in Lightroom then import to photoshop or edit in Lightroom after photoshop) when primarily stacking to reduce noise.


  2. Hello! I have had my Rebel T5i for a while now, and have progressed majorly. I am shooting for people and have a 18-55mm kit lens, 50mm f/1.8, and my favorite, the 24-105mm f/4 L USM. I am confident that I am ready to switch to full frame, and I was wondering what you recommend. Nikon seems to have cheaper full frames, such as the D610, but should I just go for a used Canon full frame? My budget is around $1500.

  3. Nice, i always asked myself how to do this.
    Another question, do you edit photo's on a high dpi monitor? Like 4 or 5k in 27 inch form factor?
    I find it more difficult to value image sharpness then on lower dpi monitors, i found that less sharp foto's on lower dpi monitors are sharper on high dpi ones.
    So in lightroom, do you zoom more then 1:1 for sharpness evaluation?

  4. What a brilliant idea and composition. I started playing with your sample photos but it's going to take quite a few attempts. The pen tool might make a cleaner selection but it would be slow. (Done, quite happy with my attempt. I copied the images and cropped them to make things easier to see and place. Then removed the tern from one of the images to use as the background. Imported the rest as a stack then masked out the background around the tern).

  5. Tony, Here is the reply to my email to him about what he was doing wrong.

    you put your foot further down your throat, we suggest you read the
    listing. Additionally, we verify certification with the FAA on the
    publicly-viewable airmen certification website. (SAYS WHO TONY?) We have had several
    folks try to get us to make them badges but after not being able to
    verify their certificate we educated them, (DUH!), and provided info about our
    recreational badge, which is more suited to them.

    In fact, the
    FAA has thanked us for the links in our listings that help educate drone
    pilots and we have been recognized for our safety checklists products.
    Our advice: read the listing. We're assuming that you would not be
    interested in purchasing anything.

    Seattle TechnologyYeah, who is keeping track of what this guy is OKing? Nobody! So somebody else follows in this guys tracks making money the same way only he just makes his available to anybody! Like this guy is a saint? He's no government official, period Tony! He needs to stick to his check lists!!!

  6. Tony, Please look at the links below to eBay where a guy is selling Fake FAA Certificate Remote Pilot Badges, and Fake FAA "RECREATIONAL REMOTE PILOT", looking for all the world they were issued by the real FAA, with all the Logos, and hologram and registration numbers on them. He says he verifies the info the people give him before he makes them a badge and if they don't hold a Certificate he educates them and sells them his "RECREATIONAL REMOTE PILOT BADGE" instead because he helps them out because his customers claim they are being harassed when they are flying legally! Lol! If they are flying where they are supposed to be flying, big empty field, no people around under the drone, not near any airport or helicopter pad. You know the drill, he wouldn't have someone asking him if he knew what hell he was doing and want proof! Some jerk flying irresponsibly can buy one of these and deceive the public into leaving him alone because the Badges are convincingly legal looking with all the FAA, Logos, and hologram, making it hard for any law enforcement official to know if it's official or not, not ever having seen one!, potentially deceiving him! Letting the jerk go with a warning even! Like I said before, Who is watching this guy? Who is making sure he only makes them ONLY for legit people? He only wants to make a buck! He is making a mockery of the FAA test and Certification process and all the time and money we real Airman Certificate holders have went through to gain this privilege! Please look into it and Please make a video shinning a big spotlight on this farce! Shut down his fake FAA Badges! He not working for the FAA, nor is he doing the FAA any favor's like he says. His other items are OK, but the Badges looking like they are FAA Issued have got to GO!

  7. When I need to manually align layers in GIMP, I change the top layer to "difference." When you do that, it highlights where the layers differ the most, making it easy to line them up quickly; just move them until you get rid of most of the highlighted areas.
    Still a useful video.

  8. Amazing. It'd have been cool if you'd hit ctrl + r to see the size you were working with, and generally get a better idea of how a large print would have been. Consequently, how did your print turn out?

  9. why not re-title your video "…in Photoshop, and these other programs." why not JUST use Photoshop, if that's what you're going to call your video? it's deceptive, otherwise.

  10. Total credit to you for pulling off a multiple exposure like that, it's hard enough with fast moving clouds but with next to no continuity of the background, wow I'm in awe!
    With hind sight it would have been easier zooming out and capturing the whole sequence that way, in instances like this, pre-visualisation pays off in post editing.
    Oh one VITAL tip, SAVE your editing at various stages throughout the edit, losing an hours work in a computer crash is a real bummer.
