Back to Cambodia

By Flemmingbo

Cambodia was a whirlwind tour of photography for me but an incredible charming country that left a lasting impression. I am considering returning later this year to capture more portraits of the fantastic people of Cambodia. Angkor Wat deserves many visits, it is the most awe-inspiring of places. I recently processed two images from Cambodia in Capture One:

cam-c1-market

cam-c1-thun-angkor

These two images are straight out of Capture One with only sharpness added in Photoshop after resizing. I am teaching myself Capture One as I’m assisting a friend who uses Capture One for his work including shooting tethered on site. I am quite impressed by the tethering feature, it works really well. As an expert Lightroom user there are quite a few features that I miss in Capture One (or perhaps I cannot find them). The awesome lens correction tool in Lightroom is much better than C1 and I cannot figure out how to split tone a colour image, for example tint the shadows blue. Capture One is also slow as molasses. But the colour module is outstanding and I find the processing engine to live up to it’s reputation as the best on the market. The processed TIFFs have a sharp and crisp very 3D quality and the colour tones are incredibly detailed, subtle and beautiful. For the processing and colour engine alone I may end up switching to Capture One. I shall need it anyway for when Phase One decides to sponsor me a Phase One. That reminds me, I presently live 2 km’s from the office of Phase One, I must go ask for my camera!
