Guest Speaker: Richard Curtis – Adobe Principle Solutions Consultant
 
The Session will walkthrough features of Lightroom from version 4 to CC and focus on key points in the workflow that can make a huge difference to your photographs.

Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens
From the Lomography Lomography Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens Kickstarter Campaign:
 
Swirl to Freedom with the World’s First Petzval Bokeh Control Lens
 
Bokeh Like a Boss
Using the Bokeh Control Ring on the New Petzval 58, you’re totally free to determine the strength of the swirly bokeh in your photos. You can now get the characteristic swirly bokeh effect in ways it has NEVER been possible before. This revolutionary component is the first of its kind on a Petzval lens!
 
58mm Focal Length and Maximum f/1.9 Aperture
The New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens has a maximum aperture of f/1.9 and is a 58mm lens, which is a fantastic all-round focal length for portraits, landscapes and photos of your cat doing jumping jacks. We promise you will love shooting every scene with your New Petzval 58 in hand.
 
Premium Russian Glass Optics in a Beautiful Brass Body
The New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens features the finest quality Russian glass optics. Available in a brass or black finish, it’s designed to perfectly mirror the look of original 19th century Petzval lenses.
 
Look Back to the Future
Joseph Petzval invented his revolutionary Petzval optic in 1840 — a hugely popular portrait lens that changed the world of photography. Now, 175 years later and building on our success with the Lomography New Petzval 85mm Lens in 2013, the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens is here to join the growing Lomography Art Lens Family. The lens has been specially developed to work with modern analogue and digital cameras and is available in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts (it’s also compatible with multitudes of other cameras such as the Sony A7, Fuji X-Pro 1 and Micro 4/3 Cameras using adapter mounts).
 
For more info, check out the Lomography Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens Kickstarter Campaign.

B+W 82mm XS-Pro UV Haze MRC-Nano filter
Amazon is featuring the B+W 82mm XS-Pro UV Haze MRC-Nano filter as a Amazon Lightning Deals and is available for $76.99. Compare at $96.00.
 
Features:
 
  • This filter uses our XS-Pro Digital mount which is especially suited for DSLRs with wide angle and zoom lenses. It has a front thread for additional accessories. All XS-Pro Digital mounts are made of brass and are matte black to prevent reflections.
  • MRC Nano has an improved outer (8th) layer over regular MRC. The nanotechnology based characteristic (lotus effect) produces a better beading effect with water making the cleaning of this filter even simpler and faster than ever before.
  • Manufactured from Water-White Schott Glass
For what it's worth, B+W's XS-Pro lineup has become a personal favorite of Bryan's. They feature a ring that's thin enough not to cause noticeable vignetting on most wide-angle lenses yet still thick enough to be compatible with standard lens caps.

Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens
Image quality results from a second lens have been added to the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens review page.
 
The results from the first Tamron 28-300 VC we tested were ... not good. The second lens is "clearly" superior to the first and the results from this lens are now shown as the default sample "1". Here is a comparison between the two Tamron 28-300mm VC PZD lenses.
 
Here is an interesting image quality comparison: Tamron 28-300mm VC PZD Lens compared to the Canon 28-300mm L IS Lens.
 
Specifications, measurements and standard product images along with a variety of on-camera imagery are also now available for this lens. Here is an interesting size comparison: Tamron 28-300mm VC PZD Lens vs. Canon 28-300mm L IS Lens.
 
The price differential is nearly as large. B&H has the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD Lens in stock.
