@russellordphoto here. One of the biggest things I noticed when I made the transition into using Capture One was the actual finished product of the image, the file size was noticeably larger with far more detail. To be honest, it's a little daunting having to teach yourself a new program; however, with the online tutorials and the ability to import lightroom catalogs made the transition very easy indeed.
That’s all from me here @captureonepro. Feel free to follow me at @russellordphoto for more of my images. - - -
Still @russellordphoto here: This ocean image was taken 15km off the Western Australian coast late in the afternoon, my biggest fear during those moments is giving myself enough time to get back to shore in enough light to find my way, however its difficult to leave at the same time when the conditions and light are pristine. - - -
@russellordphoto on a photo of former world champion surfer @thomasvictorcarroll beneath the sea. The textured surface created by an Indonesian tropical storm, it's impressive how tranquil and image can appear however in reality above the surface we were getting struck with piercing rain. - - -
@russellordphoto back, once again: Shooting directly into the early morning sun using the Aquatech camera housing, Fujifilm Xt2 and 35mm lens. Having a water droplet on the port can give you a beautiful final image with all sorts of light shapes appearing in the picture. Editing wise, I simply adjusted the white balance and the curves, I use the curves module with my ocean imagery to give punch and contrast. - - -
@russellordphoto here once again: Another favourite feature of mine in Capture One is being able to use layers and editing individual parts of a photograph. During the editing process, I would typically do a swift edit and come back to the image on a later date to spend more time with layers before the printing process takes place. - - -
@russellordphoto here again on one of my favourite images of my son @kalani_ord surfing in New Zealand. The sun is just rising above the ridge just enough to light up his body like it has been photographed with a huge studio flash, the very brief moment in time coinciding with incredible light. - - -
Hi guys, @russellordphoto here. There is a sense of peace while swimming and searching for waves off the rugged coast of Western Australia. Using Capture One during the editing process allows me to keep detail in the bright whites (whitewater) and deep blues, it's one of the many features that I use and love while in the editing process. - - -
Hi guys, @russellordphoto here again. Black and White portrait of free surfer @chippawilson taken using a Fuji XH1 and an Aquatech camera housing. I like to use the large dome while shooting this style of portraiture to create a good split between above and below the ocean. - - -
Hi guys, @russellordphoto here. I love the behind the scenes image from a recent workshop I hosted in Fiji, it's undoubtedly gratifying when students reach specific goals and being able to take certain photographs, you cannot take the smiles off their faces once they sit back and start editing after a long day using Capture One. - - -
This week we hand over the Instagram scene to internationally acclaimed photographer, Russell Ord @russellordphoto. He’s shot magazine covers of world-class surfers and helped deify celebrity chefs. He’s roamed with Uunguu Rangers in the Australian outback, island-hopped across tropical fantasylands and followed his photographic instincts through urban meccas. Meanwhile, his ocean images are celebrated for simultaneously implying the cruelty and majesty of the sea.
Hi! It's @aquatilis_expedition again!
Cyanea capillata tentacles. Another close-up photo of the tentacles. Many jellyfish with long tentacles are able to stretch them as thin as a sliver of fishing line, so they are almost invisible. Just like on the photo. If you look closely, each tentacle has visible bumps - every single one is a bunch of stinging cells.
They are quite painful to catch, and I have experienced it many times. The red tissues in the background are the oral lobes. To eat, the Cyanea just needs to cover their prey with these rags and digestion begins. By the way, this jellyfish eats mostly other jellyfish, even those larger than itself.
I’m always excited when I look at photos like this on a full screen with 100% magnification: modern sensors, lenses and photo editing allow you to get such incredible detail that it looks like I went diving with a microscope. It was absolutely impossible to imagine this even ten years ago! I’m super-lucky to have a chance to see this hidden world and bring it to the surface with camera work and photo editing. And I’m sure it will become better and better every year.
The next step for me is to dive into this world with the new Phase One XF camera before editing the images with the amazing color selection in Capture One Pro – so that I capture and share everything I see in the best possible way.
Hi! It's @aquatilis_expedition again!
Forskalia edwardsii. This is a photo from our Mediterranean project, where we are currently making a documentary about the nightlife of the sea. The thing is that only at night all sorts of strange creatures emerge from the depths to feed, reproduce or just swim safely while hunters (mostly fish) are sleeping.
One of these creatures is a siphonophore Forskalia, colonial super-organism, able to grow to several meters in length. In the “assembled” form, it resembles a colorful semi-transparent snake floating through the dark waters, but in the hunting mode it “opens”, releasing long and thin hunting tentacles covered with burning stinging cells.
Siphonophores are able to seriously harm you, so when I’m photographing them with macro lenses, I really want to have a full-face mask on me. To get a clear shot like this underwater, you have to get very close. But if you carelessly touch a couple of tentacles, Forskalia immediately pulls the tentacles and swims away. Here you need to be ultra quick and accurate.
