    The Luminous Landscape have a series of videos delving into Capture One 10, and are, I believe, currently working on a similar series for version 11.

    It would be interesting to see a more in depth comparison between Capture One and Lightroom, particularly as Adobe are going all nasty with forced subscription plans.

  • Thanks Gents., this was a really informative look at Capture One and showed me that it is probably a little more versatile than the stand-alone Lightroom that I have. Very occasionally I find LR a bit restricted, but I don’t really need and don’t have the CC edition (with the full PS). Apparently Adobe will not be developing the stand-alone version any more, so Capture One may be a good upgrade for me and I would certainly welcome a deeper look at it.

  • John Osman

    Thanks. As always I gain so much knowledge of post-processing from these On Landscape tutorials (regardless of the software being used). I would be interested in more of them based around the specific use of Capture One too.

  • Geoff Kell

    Thank you both. I would second John’s comment that it’s such a wonderful insight into the artistic interpretation of images regardless of which tools are used and for this reason alone i’d love to see more tutorials. Having said that Capture One seems to provide a lot of flexibility especially being able to use layers & even curves within layers which is intriguing & seems well worth exploring. Thanks again.

  • Miles Flint

    Thanks. It’s always instructive to watch Joe Cornish talking through how he edits an image.

    I’ve used Capture One since 2009. It’s inherent flexibility means it took me more time to learn than Lightroom did but over time Capture One won out. C1 11 now allows most tools to be used on layers which makes it much more Photoshop like and I’m seriously think of cancelling my PS/LR subscription and just having C1 and PS CS6. This just about covers the cost of an annual C1 version upgrade.

    Phase One also offer a 30 day trial of a full working version of C1.

    Joe has talked about using his Sony A7r as a view camera with tilt adapter, I was wondering if on his holiday to Yosemite he took his tilt adapter / lens. I ask because I am currently exploring a simple tilt adapter with CY Zeiss primes and considering adding a 35mm/tilt to my bag along with my 24-70GM. By the way, its my 3rd example of that lens, I had 2 decentered copies sent back, so nil points for Sony quality control.

    • from Joe : “yes indeed, I did take a Kipon tilt (only) adapter, Nikon to Sony, and two 35-year old Nikon lenses which I bought new in the early ‘80s, 28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8. I used both, plus my G-Master zoom. And I even used the (often rubbished) Zeiss/Sony 16-35mm f/4 for a couple of compositions. These old lenses can still produce lovely results, but sharpening/clarity may need to be tuned to taste (and obviously c/a correction is essential).”

    • Peter Russell

      Thanks Joe, Tim.
      I’d like to say I would appreciate a Capture One tutorial having enjoyed and benefited from your Lightroom series. In the 80’s I managed a photographic shop in Redcar not far from Great Ayton where I lived but I don’t believe you were a customer! Its gratifying when one’s children also enjoy photography, my daughter has just returned from Patagonia with some stunning shots.

  • stevebyrne

    I would definitely enjoy a Capture One feature video along the linews of your previous LR ones.

  • Stuart Westmore

    Sounds like there’s already a landslide in favour of C1 tutorials from Joe – but we all knows what happens in polls when people don’t cast their votes, so pls count me as a yes! I’ve been using C1 for a few years, and while i’m happy with results, I still feel like I’ve just scratched the surface of what can be done with such a powerful program.

  • Jonathan Ride

    Fascinating to see how Joe edits with C1. I’ll add my vote to see more of the same, please!
