$ (document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({“containerId”:”embeddedSampleGallery_4080077450″,”galleryId”:”4080077450″,”isEmbeddedWidget”:true,”standalone”:false,”selectedImageIndex”:0,”isMobile”:false}) });

The Olympus 17mm F1.2 promises to open up new possibilities for Micro Four Thirds shooters seeking razor-thin depth-of-field and smooth, ‘feathered’ bokeh. We’ve had the chance to do some shooting with it both close to home and on the road in Charleston, South Carolina. Take a peek at our extensive sample gallery.

As far as fixed lens compacts go, the G1 X Mark III is one of the most capable – and pricey – models we’ve seen to date. It packs in a 24MP APS-C sensor, OLED viewfinder, Dual Pixel autofocus and a fully articulated touchscreen. Our production-ready review unit just rolled in the door and we’ve got a full gallery of sample images for you.

Panasonic Lumix G9 sample gallery

Panasonic pleasantly surprised us last week when they dropped off a near-final version of their new Lumix DC-G9 flagship stills camera. There’s obviously a ton we want to test out, but in the meantime, we were eager to get it out and about for some initial sample shooting. Watch this space in the coming weeks for more images under a variety of situations, including some peak-action sports. For now, take a look at what it can do in low light and a rare sunny afternoon in otherwise wintry Seattle.

The Leica Thambar 90mm F2.2 is an M-mount version of a classic portrait lens known for its unique soft rendering. We had our hands on a loaner unit for a little while, and put it right to work on the subject matter it’s designed for. See what this modern take on a vintage design can do.

Canon EF-M 22mm F2 STM sample gallery

The Canon EF-M 22mm F2 is by no means a new lens. But it’s a lens we find ourselves returning to again and again as we test Canon’s mirrorless cameras. It’s matched perfectly to small, mirrorless camera bodies; put it on an M100 and you’ve got an extremely compact and lightweight combination that’s ideal for everyday situations.

We’ve collected some of our sample images with this handy little lens from years past into a single gallery – take a look.

How to Create a Beautiful Online Gallery with Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Portfolio in 15 Minutes

04 Nov

One of the common questions I hear from photographers is regarding a way to link Lightroom to a photography portfolio website. It usually comes from photographers who don’t like the design options in the LR Web module. The perfect solution doesn’t exist, perhaps the closest (until recently) is Koken, a free plugin that I wrote about some time ago that uses Lightroom’s Publish Collections to update your online portfolio.

But, the good news is that Adobe has just made creating a portfolio website a whole lot easier with its latest update to Adobe Portfolio.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

What is Adobe Portfolio?

Adobe Portfolio is exactly what it sounds like – an online gallery of photos. The benefit of using Adobe Portfolio is that it’s very easy (no web design or coding skills required). It also integrates with your Lightroom Collections (this is the update I just referenced).

That means all you have to do is set up some Collections containing the photos you want to include in your gallery and synchronize them with Adobe Portfolio. Then it’s just a matter of choosing a layout, tweaking the design, and making the website live. You can do all of this in less than 15 minutes.

The only caveat is that you need to be an Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan subscriber. Just like Lightroom mobile and Lightroom web, it isn’t available to photographers who use a standalone (purchased) version of Lightroom.

Curious? You can check out a portfolio website I created for myself using Adobe Portfolio here to see what it’s capable of.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Step-by-Step Guide to Adobe Portfolio

The first step – and probably the hardest – is to decide what photos you want to include in your portfolio. Once you’ve made your mind up about that, the rest is easy.

  1. Create a Collection Set in the Library module called Portfolio.
  2. Create several Collections inside this Collection Set, one for each gallery you want to include on your portfolio website.
  3. Add photos to the Collections.
  4. Arrange the photos in the order in which they are to be displayed online.
  5. Synchronize the photos in the Collections by ticking the boxes to the left of the Collection name (marked below).

My portfolio website (link above) has four galleries; Black & White, Portraits, Spain, and Devon. Each gallery corresponds to a Collection in Lightroom with the same name (seen below).

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Register

Go to www.myportfolio.com and sign in with your Adobe ID. If you haven’t created a portfolio yet click the button that says Get Started Free. Otherwise, click the button that says Edit Your Portfolio.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Choose a design for your gallery

Now it’s time to choose a layout. Start by clicking the Switch layouts icon (marked below).

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Adobe Portfolio gives you eight layouts from which to choose. All the layouts are fully mobile responsive, which means they work and look professional on mobile phones and tablets as well as desktop computers. Decide which one you want to use and click the Use this layout button.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

It may be difficult to visualize which one works best when populated with your photos. Don’t worry about that at this stage – you can change the layout afterward if you want to.

Settings

Next, click the Edit your settings icon (marked below).

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Go to Site Options and click the Lightbox for Images tab. Tick the “Enable lightbox for images on my pages” box and click Done (see below). This is important as it lets people view the photos on your portfolio website. If you don’t tick it all they will be able to see are thumbnails.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Add images to your gallery

Click the Manage content icon (marked below).

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Go to the Integrations tab and Click the Add Collections button. The website opens a window that displays all your synchronized Lightroom Collections. Pick the ones you want to include in your portfolio and click the Import Selected button (see button below lower-right).

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Go to Adobe Portfolio, click on the Manage content icon again and go to the Website Pages tab. Make sure the switch is set to the On position for each Collection you want to display on your portfolio website.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Choose cover photos

Now it’s time to tidy up the gallery cover photos. You’ll need to do this once for each gallery. Start by clicking the pencil icon next to the gallery cover photo (see below).

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Pick Edit Cover Image from the menu to edit the cover photo. At the moment this feature is a little limited – the website automatically picks the photo that appears on the cover and it’s not easy to change it.

The only way currently is to click Upload a new image and upload a photo you’ve exported from Lightroom – there’s no way to select another photo from the Collection. But you can zoom the photo and adjust the crop. Click Done when you’re finished and repeat for the other gallery cover photos.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Setup the domain name

Click the Edit your settings icon again and click Domain Name. You can select a URL for your portfolio in the form yourname.portfolio.com. This is the easiest option. Alternatively, if you have a domain or a subdomain you can follow the instructions to use that.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Preview your portfolio gallery

Click the gray Preview button to see a preview of your portfolio website. Happy with what you see? Click Update Live Site to publish your portfolio to your chosen URL. Congratulations – your brand new portfolio website is now live!

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

Customizing the design

So far I’ve shown you how to get your portfolio website online as quickly as possible. The hardest part, as I said, is deciding which photos to include in your gallery. That can take hours, days, or even weeks. But, once the decision is made, you can get your portfolio online in under 15 minutes. It really is that quick.

If you’re happy with the default settings of your layout you can stop there, your job is done. But it’s worth spending some time looking at both the page and global settings. You can customize things such as fonts, colors and the number of columns on your front page. There is an option to add pages (for instance an About page) and links to other websites. You have a lot of options and it’s worth exploring them to see how you can individualize your portfolio website.

You can even change the layout by clicking on the Switch layouts icon. Adobe portfolio remembers your customizations, which gives you peace of mind as it means you won’t lose your customizations when you switch from one layout to another.

When you are finished, remember to click the green Update Live Site button. None of your customizations are published until you click that button.

How to update the photos

Portfolios are fluid and as time goes by you will add and remove photos from the Collections you created. You may also add more Collections as your photo collection grows. There are two steps to updating your portfolio website.

1. Update your Lightroom Collections and make sure Lightroom has had time to synchronize the changes.

2. Go to Adobe Portfolio, click on the Manage content icon and go to the Website Pages tab. Click on the Cog icon next to the Collection that you want to update and select Reset from Lightroom to update your portfolio gallery.

Adobe Portfolio Lightroom

3. Finish by clicking the green Update Live Site button to publish the updates to your portfolio website.

Next steps

With the recent update that lets you integrate Lightroom Collections, Adobe Portfolio has become the easiest way to create a portfolio website using Lightroom Collections. The only downside, as mentioned earlier, is that you need to be a Creative Photography Plan subscriber to use this feature.

If you are not, then look at Koken as an alternative. Don’t dismiss the Web module out of hand either, it has some very useful features and doesn’t require a CC subscription to use.

Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM sample gallery updated

03 Nov

$ (document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({“containerId”:”embeddedSampleGallery_1304509160″,”galleryId”:”1304509160″,”isEmbeddedWidget”:true,”standalone”:false,”selectedImageIndex”:0,”startInCommentsView”:false,”isMobile”:false}) });

The 70-200mm F2.8 is a staple piece of kit for a lot of professional and advanced shooters. Sony’s full-frame E-mount version happens to carry the ‘GM’ logo, designating it one of the brand’s highest quality pieces of glass.

We carried it along while exploring the areas in and around Jackson, Wyoming and found it capable of excellent image quality. This is especially true when you stop it down a bit. You can also take a look at our previously-published Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM roller derby gallery.

Canon 85mm F1.4L IS USM sample gallery

01 Nov

$ (document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({“containerId”:”embeddedSampleGallery_6995506461″,”galleryId”:”6995506461″,”isEmbeddedWidget”:true,”standalone”:false,”selectedImageIndex”:0,”startInCommentsView”:false,”isMobile”:false}) });

The Canon 85mm F1.4L, announced at the end of August, updates the company’s series of 85mm primes with a useful new feature: image stabilization. The lens isn’t as fast as the 85mm F1.2L II that came before it, but should offer the ability to shoot handheld at slower shutter speeds.

True to its L-series branding it’s dust- and weather-sealed, and it ships this month for $ 1600. DPR staffer Carey Rose and friend of the site Michael Bonocore have been shooting with it on the road and closer to home – take a look at some sample shots.

Canon G1 X Mark III pre-production sample gallery

30 Oct

$ (document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({“containerId”:”embeddedSampleGallery_6442077554″,”galleryId”:”6442077554″,”isEmbeddedWidget”:true,”standalone”:false,”selectedImageIndex”:0,”startInCommentsView”:false,”isMobile”:false}) });

The Canon G1 X III isn’t a whole lot bigger than the G5 X, but it hosts a much bigger APS-C sized sensor. Consider its 24-70mm equiv. lens, Dual Pixel AF, built-in EVF and generous dedicated controls and you’ve got a versatile tool that juuuuust fits in your coat pocket. We’ve been shooting with a pre-production model; the JPEG images in this beta gallery have been down-scaled to 90% at Canon’s request.
