LUT Generator

I found this interesting IWLTBAP LUT generator. It allows you to make LUT files from eg. lightroom edits or basically from any editor. As the website says “Important note: A Look-Up Table (LUT) can only affect colors, contrast, brightness, gamma, etc. So you can’t add grain, noise reduction, vignetting, sharpen or any other dynamic effects.” By converting the edit to LUT you can use it in video editor like DaVinci Resolve or Premier but Photoshop also supports LUTs as adjustment layers. Naturally you cannot adjust individual sliders anymore as you could do if you would use smart objects and camera raw but adjustment layers are more lightweight and many times more convenient to use. So if you use eg. same colouring time after time this might be a viable option also in photoshop. For eg. pictures I used this PSDesire “Aqua and Brown” tutorial in youtube. I can’t tell the difference between camera raw version and the LUT version. You can download the LUT from here.

Runokuvaa 2

I went to see the Runo kuvaa 2 exhibition in Helsinki yesterday. It was a nice little exhibition in an atmospheric cellar space. Works in the exhibition show wide variety of photographic and writing styles which I think works really well. If you want to see it it’s open until 2.2 2018 in Helsingin Kellariteatteri, Helsinki, Finland. We also visited the Ateneum which among others had over 300 works from von Wright brothers. They really were masters on guiding viewers with light.

Art is mightier than the sword

Made a modification to the adage “Pen is mightier than the sword” and did some still life for a change. I used just one light to get really tight spot for the setup and then spent some time to get pleasing arrangement. Small changes can affect a lot here.

DIY Charging Station

After a longer photo project wanted to do something different. I have wanted some kind of charging station to clear up the wire mess but my wall space is kind of limited. I have used tool cart for photo use and I thought I could hang it there. With this project I thought I also learn some video editing and shooting and test how my machine handles 4K video. My only 4K capable video camera is iPhone 8 so I shot all the video with it.
