One thing I know: if I'm in a situation where I need reliable power under just about any condition, I'm reaching for the Iforway PowerElf. It is the ultimate portable power station.

powerelf-overview.jpg

I'll provide a quick overview of the device first, then I'll share what's really impressed me after testing it.

With a mega-capacity of 46,800 mAh battery, IP64 waterproof shell, compact design (2.65lbs) and 10 layers of power protection, Iforway PowerElf is a robust, reliable outdoor power station. It has a 45W type-c port (for laptops!), 2 USB ports, 1 DC output port, and a cigarette lighter socket. PowerElf can be charged 3 ways - wall outlet, solar panels, and car cigar lighter. And, if all of that wasn't interesting enough, the power station also includes a bright LED light panel that can illuminate your work area.

P6211403.jpg Using the 12 volt socket to recharge camera batteries on the go. I used this function a lot!

I used the PowerElf to recharge batteries, iPhones, iPads, drone batteries, and even my bluetooth speaker. In informal testing, the charge time felt about the same as when I used a wall socket. So I had both portability and speed.

powerelf-panel.jpg Here's mission control: input and output sockets, power on, and the light control.

I wanted to cover the LED lighting panel in detail for a moment because it's one of my favorite features. It's a nice big light source that can illuminate an entire table (or room). But it also has multiple modes: steady white source, blinking white source, steady red source, and blinking red source. The red helps you maintain your night vision while still having the ability to see your surroundings. You can use the light and recharge items at the same time - a very valuable feature.

P6231412.jpg

I also like the weather resistant aspect of this device. If I'm using the PowerElf in the field, or depending on it during an emergency, I don't want to worry about its performance if the weather turns bad. The entire unit is waterproof (rated IP64) so I can focus on the situation and not my power source.

There are nice touches as well, such as rubber strips on the bottom to prevent sliding on smooth surfaces, a wrist rope, LED power indicators, and automatic power off. They've included overcharging, overflow, and short-circuit protections.

You can learn more about the Iforway PowerElf by visiting their website. They've also just launched an Indiegogo campaign, where you can get the best deal possible. Estimated retail price will be around $150.

At first I was considering the PowerElf for field work. But after testing it, I also want it for emergencies. Knowing that I can fully charge my iPhone 16 times and have a bright light source is very comforting. Hopefully, I'll never need it in that capacity. But if I do, I know I'll be able to depend on it.

Organized storage space is something that practically every photographer needs. And the Ruggard Electronic Dry Cabinet combines handsome looks with practical humidity control for your gear.

P6201395-dry-cabinet-web.jpg

P6201371-dry-cabinet-web.jpg

I set up the 80 liter model in my studio for gear that I use regularly, but that I don't keep in a bag. One of things that I like about the Ruggard Cabinet is that it provides quick access. I keep it unlocked during the day so I can simply grab what I need. When I'm not around, I use the keyed lock for an additional layer of security.

I can store quite a bit of equipment in the 80L model. Its internal dimensions are 17.7" x 12.9" x 21.1" / 45.0 x 32.9 x 53.5 cm. It's storage efficient however, because the outer dimensions are only: 20.3" x 14.3" x 21.2" / 51.6 x 36.2 x 53.8 cm. The cabinet includes an adjustable shelf with padding. So I could use the top shelf for archival prints, and the bottom area for camera gear. 13"x19" prints fit perfectly on the adjustable shelf.

The system uses a TE Cooling Wafer that regulates the interior's relative humidity from 35-60 percent to help prevent fungus and corrosion. Humidity adjustments take place over a 1 to 3-hour period. When I work with the door open during gear swaps, the humidity will climb to room level. Once I close the door, the TE Cooling Wafer goes to work, and the humidity works its way back down to what I've set. This usually takes an hour or two.

P6201380-dry-cabinet-web.jpg

I can set relative humidity inside the cabinet from 60 percent to 30 percent. Ruggard includes a table for recommended settings. (I'm currently using the 40 percent setting.)

  • 50-60 percent - Books and documents
  • 40-50 percent - Electronics, cameras, transparencies
  • 35-40 percent - Circuit boards, batteries

Power is supplied by a universal adapter (110-240v). There's also a light inside the cabinet that's operated by the control panel. This display also provides readouts for temperature and humidity. (Temperature is for readout only, since there isn't a cooling element in the cabinet.)

P6201376-dry-cabinet-web.jpg

The Ruggard Electronic Dry Cabinet ($249) is a handsome, useful storage system for photographers. The glass door with rubber sealing is secure, and it's also a good-looking display for your gear (especially with the internal light turned on).

Even though it isn't a safe, the locking door does provide a level of security so that it isn't easy to casually access your gear. This would be particularly helpful during public events or anytime visitors are hanging around your work area.

And if you work in a high humidity environment, this storage system can really help you protect your lenses, cameras, and prints.

iPhone X in New York City

IMG_2486.jpg

This was a crazy trip from the start. Zach and I caught a red eye flight to JFK from San Francisco on Saturday night. Then we bused in to Midtown at 6 AM and were planning our day an hour later hunched over coffee at the McDonalds across from the New Yorker. Things never slowed down from that point.

I knew that this was going to be the ultimate Nimble Photographer trip. I had my laptop and Micro Four Thirds kit stashed in my backpack. But from the minute we checked in, until I caught the red eye back home 3 days later, my bag stayed in the room, and it was just Zach and I on the streets of New York.

Kids and Pigeons, Central Park "Kids and Pigeons, Central Park" - iPhone X. Processed in Photos for macOS and Luminar 2018. Photo by Derrick Story.

This is precisely the situation that motivated me to spend the extra money for the iPhone X last year. With temperatures hovering around 90 degrees F and high humidity, neither of us wanted to carry a bag of any type. Our kit for the day were shades, wallet, and smartphone.

Columbus Circle

The thing about it was... I was in NYC, one of my favorite places for street photography. So I wanted to be able to capture the world as we maneuvered through it. And the dual-camera iPhone allowed me to do just that.

I worked quickly and without drawing attention to myself. Zach and I kept our pace as we worked through our ToDo list (he's getting settled for a Summer internship with the NBA), while I also recorded images of us, New York City, and the people who make it interesting.

Inside Out
"Inside Out, Time Warner Building" - RAW file captured with iPhone X. Processed in Photos for macOS and Luminar 2018. Photo by Derrick Story.

I did process most of the images on my laptop once we returned to the hotel. I used Photos for macOS (the images were there waiting for me thanks to iCloud) and Luminar 2018. The changes were saved back to all my devices for sharing on social.

I could never be limited to a smartphone for all of my photography. Just like I could not survive with just a Phillips head screwdriver in my toolbox. But for this whirlwind trip to New York, the iPhone allowed my to stay focused on my son, yet come home with many wonderful visual memories.

After the second red eye home, I'm a little bleary-eyed today, but very happy.

This is The Digital Story Podcast #640, June 19, 2018. Today's theme is "The Fascinating ProGrade Digital Story." I'm Derrick Story.

Opening Monologue

How many times have you thought to yourself at work, "If I was in charge, we would do things much differently."? Industry veteran Wes Brewer, who spent years working with SanDisk and Lexar, got his chance to do exactly that. And the result of that effort is a new company called ProGrade Digital. We learn about their story in today's TDS photography podcast.

"The Fascinating ProGrade Digital Story"

ProGrade CEO Wes Brewer had seen just about all there is to see in the Flash storage industry. He was at SanDisk when the Extreme series was developed. And he was at Lexar during the coming and passing of the Micron ownership. And now he's the chief executive office of ProGrade Digital.

prograde-2048-luminar.jpg

Wes and I sat down for a chat over Skype where we discussed his observations about the industry in general, and ProGrade Digital specifically. We talked about the ins and outs of Flash storage, and how ProGrade Digital is positioning themselves to be the company that serious enthusiasts and professionals want to work with.

I think you will enjoy this conversation.

The Portfolio Project - Week 7 - Tom Bodley Photographs

Tom Bodley is our featured photographer this week with his Portfoliobox site, www.tombodleyphotography.com.

"Derrick - I very much enjoyed your recent podcast on the future of Adobe LR, and the introduction to Portfoliobox. I signed up for a pro account and set up a few galleries to share at tombodleyphotography.com.
I have been using Squarespace, but find it kind of clunky, and not really suited for photography. Right out of the box I find Portfoliobox to be far superior--many thanks for the tip! I intend to add a few more galleries to my site (Japan, Columbia Icefield Parkway, etc). "

Tom has wonderful images of Alaska and Yellowstone. But my favorite page is the featuring birds. Some very cool shots there. I hope you view them for yourself.

If you've signed up for a Portfoliobox Pro account, and have published at least one page, then send me the link to that site. Use the Contact Form on the Nimble Photographer and provide your name, the link, and the subject of the page or site you've published.

I'm also building a directory of user sites and publish it on TheDigitalStory. And all through the month of June, I will feature one of those sites on this podcast.

I love using Portfoliobox for these reasons:

  • My images look great, both on my computer and on my mobile devices.
  • It's easy to use. Without any instruction, I'm adding a high quality page in just minutes.
  • It's affordable. There's a free plan and a Pro version. The Pro version is only $82.80 per year or $8.90 per month USD, and that's before the 20 percent TDS discount.

I love the intoxicating scent of lemon blossoms. And I certainly got my fix photographing this beautiful flower with the Olympus Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens ($224) on an OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

Lemon Blossom "Lemon Blossom" - Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II with 30mm f/3.5 macro lens. ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/50th, handheld. Photo by Derrick Story.

In the world of macro lenses, the Olympus 30mm is very compact and quite affordable. I had read good reviews of it. So I thought I would take it for a spin in my patio garden. The reviewers were right. This is a excellent-value optic.

olympus-30mm.jpg

On the E-M1 Mark II, the focusing was fast and accurate. There aren't any controls on the lens itself except for a nice manual focusing ring. I didn't need it, but it's nice to know that it's there.

Other than the excellent images, what I really like about the lens is that I can have macro capability with me without taking up too much space in the camera bag. And it's very light as well.

If you're looking for a compact prime lens that works great for both macro and general purpose photography, I can easily recommend the Olympus Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens. Who knows? It could open up a whole new world for you.

I turn to Luminar when I need to add a little creative magic to my images. But there are a few older Macphun apps that I love as well, specifically Tonality and Noiseless. These can be tapped as plugins with Luminar 2018 to keep the workflow simple. Unfortunately, even though Luminar is cross platform, the older Macphun apps only work with mac OS. They are available on the Skylum site. Here's how it works.

step-1-send-tonality.png Step 1 - With the image open in Luminar, go to the Plugins menu and choose the one you want. (You have to have these already purchased and loaded on your computer.) In this case, I'm going with the B&W editor, Tonality.

step-2-Tonality.jpg Step 2 - In Tonality, I make my edits. Once I'm finished, I click on Apply to return to Luminar.

step-3-back-in-luminar.jpg Step 3 -Back in Luminar, all of my options are open. The Tonality-edited image appears on a separate layer. I can adjust its opacity or use a blending mode.

step-4-lum-blend-mode.png Step 4 - On the Tonality layer, I used the Luminosity blending mode to create the look I wanted.

step-5-noiseless.png Step 5 - Next, I tapped the Noiseless plugin to help me control the noise that was visible in the sky. Same process as before. It also returns on its own layer.

step-6-finished.jpg Step 6 - I save the the image as a Luminar file (.lmnr) by using the Save command. I can then export the image in any format or file size for sharing.

I published the finished image on Flickr for sharing and enjoyment. Compare it to the original shot illustrated in Step 1. There is a big difference in the rendering of the building.

Downtown Oakland

I used plenty of native Luminar tools as well, such as Erase and the Accent-AI filter. But having access to some of my favorite Macphun apps, especially Tonality and Noiseless, makes for a powerful, creative work environment.

We were up well before dawn to cover the annual Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic in Windsor, CA. This was the perfect assignment for my Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens mounted on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. Even in the dimmest of lighting conditions, I was able to keep my ISO low and the resolving power high.

Firing-Up-the-Balloon.jpg "Firing Up the Balloon" - Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II with 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens. ISO 200, f/1.2, 1/200th, -0.7 EV, RAW. Photo by Derrick Story.

For the entire shoot, starting at 5 AM and continuing to 7:30 AM, I locked the aperture at f/1.2 and used auto ISO. The camera keep my ISO very low, usually at 200, yet I still had plenty of shutter speed to freeze the action. The excellent sensor-based image stabilization in the E-M1 also helped my cause.

The RAW files from the shoot had excellent sharpness and tone. I was able to focus quickly on the main subjects and let everything else sort itself out. You would think that I would have many mis-focused shots at such a wide aperture, but those were rare.

On occasion, I would switch to the 45mm f/1.2 PRO, but it and the 17mm were the only two optics that I used for the shoot. Never before has challenging lighting been such a joy.

This is The Digital Story Podcast #639, June 12, 2018. Today's theme is "The Art of Festival Photography." I'm Derrick Story.

Opening Monologue

Whether you're covering a music festival or a dazzling display of hot air balloons, it's hard not to be mesmerized by the main attraction. But if you really want to tell the story of the event, you have to get past that as quickly as possible. That process - of going from being in awe to taking awesome photos - is the topic of today's TDS photography podcast.

"The Art of Festival Photography"

Our workshop crew arrived on the scene at 5am Saturday morning. The Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic was already a beehive of activity. There were vendors selling pancakes and hot chocolate, little kids in adorable hoodies, and couples arm-in-arm sharing a moment as dawn approached.

Balloon-Festival-Podcast.jpg

But all I could see at that moment were the flames lighting up the colorful balloons. And had I not shaken myself from that hypnotic state, I would have come back with just a couple postcard images. Fortunately, I rallied, and soon began to photograph the environment around me, as well as the main attraction. And here are the five steps that I kept in mind along the way.

  • Yes, Get the Postcard Shot - You need to have the image that everyone expects. So be sure to capture it, review it so that it is high quality, then check it off your mental list.
  • Turn Your Attention to the Crew - It takes many hands to pull off any type of event. And those behind the scenes images are excellent for storytelling. Viewers like to know how things happen.
  • What's Going on in the Audience? - Because they are often so engaged with the main event, audience members often won't even realize that you're taking their picture. And that engagement can be very interesting.
  • Get Tight on the Gear - Whether it's a Fender guitar, propane burner, or a shining row of wine glasses, the stuff of an event deserves its own images.
  • Move Your Feet, Bend Your Back, Stretch Your Arms - Don't fall in love with just one position or angle. Stay on the move, go high, low, and all around, and see what you can find.
  • Not only will you come home with the postcard shot to share on Facebook, you will have an entire photo essay that presents unlimited possibilities.

    The Portfolio Project - Week 6 - Dan Horton-Szar Photographs

    Dan Horton-Szar (pronounced SHAR) is our featured photographer this week with his Portfoliobox site, www.danhortonszar.com.

    "Photography has been a much-loved hobby for most of my life, and I started to work on it more seriously in the last few years. A couple of things in particular helped me on the way - starting a 365 project on Blipfoto and joining a camera club. With the experience gained through the discipline of going out and making a daily photograph, and the advice and support I received from camera club members, I've gone on to join the Royal Photographic Society and gained my ARPS distinction in October 2014."

    Dan has wonderful images of the Kent countryside and street photography as well. But my favorite page is "Raising Boys," a predominately B&W tribute to the exuberance of childhood. It's really good.

Using the RAW Power editing extension ($13.99) with Photos for macOS can squeeze every bit of image data from your files, even a ho-hum flower shot. Here are the 3 steps I use.

original-flower-raw.jpg Original flower shot I quickly grabbed one morning on my way to work. Here's how it looked before processing in RAW Power.

finished-image.jpg Final touches added in Photos. Once I save changes in the RAW Power editing extension, the image is automatically returned to Photos for macOS for finishing.

Because of the wonderful ecosystem that Photos offers, more users are processing their RAW files in Photos for macOS. As you can see, RAW Power is one of those affordable, powerful tools.
