Astrophotography Image Stacking

This week I thought Id show you guys how to reduce noise in photoshop. This technique requires you to take a series of images of the night sky and stack them. I first start out in lightroom with my color edit and then instead of reducing noise in lightroom I then select my images and open each image as its own layer in photoshop. Once the images are in photoshop you need to align the stars from each layer otherwise this edit will not work. Once the stars are aligned you then convert all the layers to a smart object. Once that is loaded you need to apply a median stack mode. What this does it takes each and every pixel and averages out the color what this does is it gets rid of any stay color noise and sensor noise. Now all that is needed to be done is a crop and export!

I hope you enjoyed this astrophotography photoshop tutorial I really had fun making it and I'm not sure if this technique of editing is that widely known!

Using Snapchat To Grow And Market Your Business

A lot of businesses in my area are still afraid to use snapchat for marketing,generating content and brand awareness. Snapchat is no longer a sexting app but so much more. With 100million daily active users it should be easy to see why snapchat is one of if not the most popular social media platform for millennials in 2016. I use snapchat for creating content around live shoots, on location BTS, workflow as well as daily life and I believe this does two things it not only creates a relationship with the viewer where they feel like they know you but also demystifies the experience of hiring me!

How To Instal Technicolor Cinestyle On A Canon DSLR

In this tutorial I show you how to instal technicolor cinestyle on a canon DSLR. Technicolor cinestyle is a custom picture profile which will allow you to shoot in as flat of an image as possible. This does two things to your camera it gives you a slightly greater dynamic range( more detail in the hight lights and the shadows) and it will make your image less saturated and more flat looking. This is super important when color grading because it will give you more flexibility when color grading. Its easy to alter the colors and contrast when youve used technicolor cinestyle but having shoot a scene with the standard canon picture profile its next to impossible to edit as much!
