My creative process starts outside of the lab. As with any “perfect” photo, it requires precision with timing, temperature and location. Typically, I have predetermined concepts in my head and I scout locations that best fit my vision.
It’s ironic that creating with analog control in the digital world is of increasing value. It’s a natural way to connect with technology using interactive tools, and the processing workflow has gone full circle. Tactile feedback improves user experience and increases comfort while rapidly accelerating workflows. Not only are analog tools in a digital workflow more fun to employ, but, in my view, they are also notably better. The integration of two such devices has extended my creativity as no others can: the Wacom Intuos Pro and Palette Gear’s Professional Kit.
I use Logic Pro X as my main Digital Audio Workstation to capture my writing process. Palette Gearallows me to easily map different MIDI CC’s or key commands to control things like: mod wheel data, expression, and vibrato. Palette it completely customizable so the list of commands you can assign is endless.
There’s a common phrase “work smarter, not harder,” and that also applies to the way you edit your photos. In this video, Brian Matiash shows you his two most important pieces of hardware that he has been using for years to edit his photos in Lightroom.
Armando Ferreira, known online as Mondo Bytes, reviews Palette Gear for film editing and color grading in Premiere Pro in a recent episode of Tested Tuesday. The self-proclaimed filmmaker, editor, and gear nerd, has been using Palette for almost an entire year in his video workflow.
