New Luts Update – SmallHD + Basic steps for Lut Using in Darktable

Hello, here we are again with a new Lut (Cube) update, however !

This time I used a different way of presenting.
Well, in the WordPress editor, there is a way to convert your new article into a podcast of sorts, and I’ve actually been interested in that for a long time.
However, the method offered – through Anchor – didn’t offer me many creative possibilities, and on the creative side I am a little bit different.
I’m also not someone who likes to be in the spotlight, I mean: making a video of myself and doing the explanation directly is a bridge too far for me – also, recording my own voice is something difficult for me – call me shy 🙂
So I started experimenting – everything was done with open source software, online speech, and provided with some free images – and most important : with a lot of imagination.
It’s all very primitive, I’m still a rookie ! but i hope you enjoy it.

P.S. the intro music is probably a little bit loud – beware !

  1. Well, that was interesting 😱 always great to experiment. I stopped using the Anchor service as… Well, it just didn’t live up to its promise for me. You certainly brightened up my day with this blog…

    1. Hello Mark, Yes, it was fun for me to.
      It’s also a way to do something different,
      and who knows, maybe I’ll get another reader/follower ?
      or the only two I have drop out 🙂
