    S. Gosling: Using Mirrorless Cameras For Landscape Photography
    on: December 11, 2019 at 7:03 pm

    Hi Rand:  I have been using the sky replacement feature on Luminar 4 as I edit images from the now somewhat dated original Leica Vario as well as images from my Foveon sensor cameras.  The replacement feature alone is worth the price of the program.  All here likely edit many features of our digital images and adding a sky is no different (at least to my mind) then removing various distractions, changing the lighting, or any of a series of other artistic steps.

    Sure. Maybe. I’ll think about it.

    Luminar 4 is pretty amazing and I think it will improve as time goes by.  I have no issue with sky replacement.  Usually, as Jeff and I experienced a month ago we some times go to great expense to visit a location and then we are cursed with big beautiful blue skies.

    I will try to do some screen grabs of Luminar 4 in action.  I also bought a set of stock clouds.  I’ll report on where I got them and how well they work soon.

    I think we are just getting a glimpse of what’s to come.

    I also watched a video that explained how to get the sky reflected in the water.  More on that after I have tried it on a few images.

    Fun times.

    Tim, it made it to the table because I wanted one.  TheS1R is kind of a misunderstood camera, I also think the price point holds it back.  Never the less it was on my Christmas list.  Since I own the a7r iv I’d love to take it out for a spin shooting with both at the same time.  I’ll do after the holidays.  Right now I’m finishing a few to say the leats camera articles.  If you’d like to share your S1R experience I am always open to printing an article from you.  If you are interested, feel free to email me.

    Was excited to see the S1R on the table (not an SR1, by the way). Disappointed that you guys didn’t seem to take it too seriously. I’ve been shooting with one since March and it is a Kickass Camera.
