Freistellen beim Blitzen mit Easy Cap

Cut out when flashing with Easy Cap

These days, cropped images are often required for publication in a wide variety of media or channels. With the HD-601 HSS, Jinbei has a cordless studio flash in its range that you can use with hisEasy capFunction helps to crop objects more easily and to create professional images faster. What is Easy Cap? With Easy Cap you can prepare the easier cropping of a subject, for example in portrait or product photography, directly when taking a picture. In the later image processing you set theCut out with little effort finished. When taking portraits, Easy Cap is a great help with the finest details such as hair. What is a cutout? A cutout depicts a motif without its disturbing background, cutting it out of the picture. It is important that the cutout precisely delimits the motif so that the cutout can be inserted perfectly into a new background using an image editing program.sst. How do you get a cutout? The first method: You do this in post-processing and, for example, use an image processing program such asAdobe Photoshop a. A wealth of methods is available with it, such as clipping with a freehand selection / lasso a clipping path a choice of colors Color channels a layer mask These procedures require some experience and practice, and they are time-consuming. Difficult motifs like hair or semi-transparent objects don't make things any easier. Chromakey solutions, the color-based image release via green or blue screen, have their pitfalls due to color fringes and annoying reflections. How does Easy Cap? No wonder that we photographers are looking for methods or products that save valuable time when clipping objects. And this is where the second method comes into play: the preparatory oneCropping when flashing. We will show you this procedure, which Hensel calls freemask and Multiblitz Easy Clip, with two Jinbei HD-601 HSS cordless studio flash units and their Easy Cap mode. This variant convinces with itsrem attractive price / performance ratio and makes clipping while flashing affordable for beginners. In the meantime, Easy Cap is also available for the current top model of the HD series, the HD-610 HSS, via firmware update. With Easy Cap two recordings are created, one with the desired one Illumination of the subject(Fig. Left and a second with the Illumination of the background (this requires at least two flash units. Due to the exclusive backlighting, the motif stands out like a black silhouette from it Fig right. This recording will be used later in addition to recording the subject in What do you need for Easy Cap? The following devices were used for our structure: camera andtripod. With Easy Cap it is important that neither the subject nor the camera move between the two shots. You should therefore use the serial picture function of your camera, especially for moving subjects, which triggers both pictures as quickly as possible. Easy Cap-compatible flash unitsIn our case, these are two Jinbei HD-601 HSS cordless studio flash units. One is used as the main light, the other as the background light. Of course, you can use several flash units for even illumination. Up to four flashes are recommended for larger subjects. OneRadio flash trigger like the Jinbei TR-Q6 for Canon, Nikon or Sony cameras, which supports group control. Light shaper for the two flash units, such as a reflector and a 60 x 90 cm softbox as well as a reflector panel. For post processing aImage editing program like Adobe Photoshop, which works with layers and alpha masks. What does the structure look like? TheLight sketch clarifies the structure: to the left of the camera is an HD-601 HSS with an attached softbox as the main light. To the right of the camera, place the reflector that brightens the subject. Align the second HD-601 HSS behind the subject as pure background light on the background. When setting up, make sure that the flash for the backlight cannot be seen in the picture there is as much distance as possible between subject and background the illumination is optimal without stray / ambient light, with a completely white background so that the silhouette is easy to create. Your camera's histogram display will help you make an assessment.g. What do you set on the flash units? Set the on both flash units in menu 4e Easy cap function and All 2 on both devices. In our case, this stands for the two HD-601s with three flash units, for example, select All 3. The main light on the left becomes No. 1, that is, this lightning bolt is the first to trigger. The background light on the right gets No. 2 and fires as a second flash.zweiter Blitz. What are you setting on the camera? On the camera we set the white balance to the flash symbol, the shutter speed to 1/125 s, the ISO value to 100 and the aperture wide closed for the greatest possible depth of field. When taking your picture, make sure that the main light illuminates the subject according to your ideas. To do this, set the flash output and the camera parametersaccording to your requirements a. What do you set on the flash trigger? To set the power using the TR-Q6 remote release, selectgroups out. Assign group A to the main light and group B to the background light. Set the desired flash output for both groups on the shutter release.ein. How does it go on?? Now it's ontaking photos. First you shoot the subject with the desired illumination through the main light. Then immediately take the second picture with the background light using the same camera setting. The exclusive illumination of the background creates thesilhouetted figure of the subject. The less ambient / scattered light there is, the more clearly the silhouette emerges, the easier it is in post-processing. How do you go about post-processing? You open both images inAdobe Photoshop and copy the silhouette into the original image as a new layer. You can use tonal correction to refine the silhouette until only black and white tones are left. Then, in the Channels palette, load the silhouette layer as a selection and invert it. Then select the lower layer in the Layers palette, press CtrlJ Mac: Cmd J and generate a new layer from the selection. Then draw in your desired background as a new layer and you are done!rtig! This excerpt shows that Easy Cap is not a quick trick, but a high quality solution for easy clipping.n.
Fashion-Fotografie: How to mit Alexander Heinrichs

Fashion photography: How to with Alexander Heinrichs

In this How-To video Alexander Heinrichs shows you how he got the topic Fashion photography during his Road trips through Namibia has implemented. The Jinbei HD-610 HSS was also a mobile light source.Why do I need a flash under the African sun??Alexander Heinrichs answers this question convincingly: We have wonderful light in the morning light and with the setting sun. But for the daytime shootings I need one additional light source to compensate for the disadvantages of the midday sun..For the wow effect, he uses a 24-70 lens on his Sony A7RII for his fashion shotsne wide-angle recording technology. Due to the short focal length and the landscape format, not only the model and the extravagant fashion clothes come, but also the impressive landscape in a large, cinema-like look to its advantage. So that the model and the clothes really pop out, he uses the HD-610 HSS battery flash to stand up to the strong ambient light.With this set with the black dress, Heinrichs clearly underexposed the sky. A polarizing filter emphasizes the sky blue and white clouds. The light on the model comes from the HD-610 HSS, which is equipped with a parabolic softbox for stronger light bundling.This fashion photo dominates less the sky, but more the foreground with the huge stones. Here Heinrichs does not place so much importance on the bright effect, but more on a soft illumination. In addition, the softbox gets a diffuser. To lighten the unfavorable shadows, he uses the HD-610 HSS from the front.Alexander Heinrichs prefers an extremely hard image look for this shot. The polarizing filter is again responsible for the dark blue sky and the sun-like light comes from the HD-610 HSS, which he uses this time without a light shaper.Open flash photography with fast shutter speedsAlexander Heinrichs knows that under the African midday sun when flashing, the camera's own synchronous time is not sufficient. We have to use a technique called HSS or Super Sync„. For Canon and Nikon cameras, the HD-610 offers the high speed synchronization HSS. With his Sony A7RII and HD-610, Heinrichs works with Super Sync. We photographed here very openly, with a 2.8 and the shutter speed, depending on the shooting set, was between 1/2000 and 1/4000.0“.
10 Tipps, die Ihre Porträtfotografie beleben

10 tips to liven up your portrait photography

Who does not know this situation: You do your job and at some point you have the feeling that you have reached a dead end. The routine has you firmly under control, lightness and inspiration have fallen by the wayside somewhere in everyday life. Then you urgently need new ideas and starting points. Our ten tips will help you take other paths in your portrait photography and develop yourself further. So get out of the comfort zone and into the adventure portrait!“!Tip # 1: Leave your studio and take a picture of the model in a previously unfamiliar locationTake photos, for example, in your personal environment, in the great outdoors and sometimes in the rain. This presents you with completely new challenges and helps you to leave the beaten track. At the same time, there is a good feeling of having mastered difficult conditions.Tip No. 2: Look through your portfolioHave you photographed more or less women up to now Always the same type, heavily made up or in the same age group Then change your style and look for male models, people of different ages, people outside the usual model profile or highly extroverted personalities. Dealing with them sharpens the eye for their character, their very personal charisma and enriches photography with many new facets.Tip No. 3: Elaborate productionsNude pictures occupy and challenge you in various ways, for example. On the one hand, such an intimate situation demands professional and sensitive handling of the model and the line between aesthetic and tasteless act is narrow. In addition, nude photography trains the eye for the composition of an image and prevents absent-minded photography.“Tip No. 4: Spontaneous recordings are good, but a storyboard also has its advantagesWith such a schedule, you give your model a small role for natural-looking portraits that she plays in front of the camera. Instead of possibly unnatural and cramped poses, you are much more likely to capture a relaxed and natural look.Tip No. 5: Work in black and white more often than in colorColor likes to distract from the essential, the light. Without distracting color, you train your eyes for the light and how it models the motif. This makes it much easier to concentrate on how to illuminate a motif.Tip No. 6: Use different perspectives or exposure times, apertures or focal lengths for your portraitsUse a 35 millimeter wide angle, even if or just because it has a completely different image effect. Use a ring flash instead of the standard portrait lighting, choose different sections, use different recording formats, change the ISO or white balance setting. Break the usual photo rules for image design. Just do it differently than usual. Everything that is new or that differs from the usual animates the work.Tip No. 7: Open yourself up to the ideas of othersStylists, makeup artists or graphic designers often have a different, undisguised view of the scenery. Take suggestions and think about them instead of rejecting them in advance. It is often the tiny little thing that gives new impulses.Tip # 8: Look over the shoulder of other photographersTake a look at their homepage, their pages on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram, analyze their pictures and develop new picture ideas from them. If you have the opportunity, visit another portrait photographer’s workshop and learn from them how to approach and implement the topic. Learning from the best does no harm!Tip No. 9: Very important: stay open to new impressions!Watch films, flip through magazines, get to know new poses, lighting, staging. Train your eye for the people in front of the camera, how they move and when they develop their fascinating charisma. And don't question everything, because only then will you be open to new inspiration.Tip No. 10: And finally, turn off the computer or televisionInternet or TV permanently flood you with stimuli that unnecessarily block creativity. Incidentally, good ideas cannot be forced; they come when you least expect them.
