Editing the Same Photo in Capture One Pro 10 vs Adobe Lightroom Classic CC

Which one? Adobe Lightroom Classic CC or Capture One Pro 10? That’s the question

Today’s video isn’t really a ReEdit episode per se, but more of a comparison of Adobe Lightroom Classic CC vs Capture One Pro 10. To do this comparison, I’ll show you guys how I’d go about editing the same image in Adobe Lightroom vs editing it in Capture One Pro 10. Lots of photographers swear by Lightroom and those who tend to want more controls and an arguably better RAW processor tend to go for Capture One Pro 10. But with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, we got a number of powerful upgrades. In addition to that, I’m editing these photos on a very good machine. So which does the better job?

The ReEdit: Editing Skin Tones and Getting More Control in Capture One

In today’s episode of The ReEdit, I decided to go back into my portfolio of hard drives to a shoot from 2013. This session was done with a fan favorite: Grace. I was reviewing a Profoto light and the images, even today, hold up. First off, it was done with what’s an old camera by today’s standards, the Canon 5D Mk II. However, when using it with the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens combined with the Profoto light I’m able to get sharpness that rivals modern cameras and lenses. This proves more than anything that your lighting is really what matters. Then I go into the editing process.

The ReEdit: Creating Better Portraits of a Violinist

In this episode of the ReEdit, I dove back into my archive of about a year to edit photos from a session that I really loved. This session was with Anna, a local violinist here in NYC and it involved using the backdrop of New York for the photos. I’m returning to Capture One due to popular request and so I’m taking everything through the culling, editing, color processing, cropping, and overall editing process.

The ReEdit: Toning Down on the HDR Look in a Photo

The ReEdit is a series on the Phoblographer where Chris and the staff dive back into their archives to find a way to make older images from previous sessions look better. The use standard techniques such as color editing, cropping, black and white conversion, etc. Be sure to not miss a single moment by subscribing to the Phoblographer on YouTube.

In the third episode of the ReEdit I return to Capture One Pro in order to show people how I currently tend to create images based on color channels and making subjects stand out more effectively by using said channels. And for this episode I went back into my archives and sought out a photo from my Secret Order of the Slice Series. The photo is an ode to Quentin Tarantino’s briefcase in the movie Pulp Fiction–and this time around I wanted to tone down the excessive editing I felt I did and instead just focus on creating a really good photo through the editing process in Capture One Pro.

The ReEdit: Culling Down 83 Images to 14 Good Ones In Adobe Lightroom

One of the biggest problems a lot of photographers have is the culling and editing process–but it's pretty simple to do in Adobe Lightroom. One of the biggest things I tell people is to become vulnerable to their own photos–which is a big part of today's tutorial video. So in this episode of the ReEdit, I take around a half hour to cull down 83 images to somewhere in the 20s. Then I do another cull and bring that number down to 14. In the end, I chose 13 out of the 83. That's still a pretty high keeper rate and with 83 photos I didn't need to overshoot at all. I didn't feel the need to and everything was simply working well. After this I do edits on the photos.
