This is a more complete version of a retouch I did for my X-rite webinar on retouching. The basic approach is Frequency Separation to place texture and color/tone in separate layers. This allows you to re-shade the image while leaving the texture intact. I have to thank Doug Pizac for this wonderful portrait!

I was lucky enough to be sent to Rio on assignment to shoot some 4K and 10K timelapse footage for a major electronics manufacturer. This video is a compilation of some of the footage I shot there. Most of the locations are within the city of Rio De Janeiro, but I also traveled to the famous Iguazú Falls on the border of the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentinian province of Misiones. In 2011 Iguazú Falls was announced as one of the seven winners of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation.
RIO DE JANEIRO
No wonder the beautiful city of Rio De Janeiro was chosen to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. Rio de Janeiro, or simply Rio, is the capital city of the State of Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city of Brazil, and the third largest metropolitan area and agglomeration in South America, boasting approximately 6.3 million people within the city proper. Part of the city has been designated as a World Heritage Site, named “Rio de Janeiro: Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea”, identified by UNESCO in the category Cultural Landscape.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visited cities in the southern hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, carnival celebrations, samba, Bossa Nova, balneario beaches such as Barra da Tijuca, Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. Some of the most famous landmarks in addition to the beaches include the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer (“Cristo Redentor”) atop Corcovado mountain, named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World; Sugarloaf mountain (Pão de Açúcar) with its cable car; the Sambódromo, a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used during Carnival; and Maracanã Stadium, one of the world’s largest football stadiums.
I hope you enjoy the video!

It was said to be “the place where Noah left his Ark.” Lush floodplains in central Mozambique packed with wild animals and more than 500 species of birds.
The legendary Gorongosa National Park was filmed by Bob Poole of National Geographic. The amazing documentary produced by James Byrne “Africa’s Lost Eden” tells the story of the extraordinary efforts of conservationists fighting to restore the park and replenish the animal populations. This is a the Tourism Promo created with footage from the film.
We love the night sky, and we love the challenge of capturing and presenting it to you. It’s an aspect of nature we thrill to share. Now, we excitedly present a jumping up a level in night sky media: video of the stars!
Over the past 5 years, digital cameras have been steadily progressing in their low light abilities. Down in the mad-labs of Uncage the Soul Productions, we’ve been tinkering with tools and techniques to show a night under the stars not just in photos or long term timelapses- but real time video. This short piece is mostly proof of concept and an exciting launch to develop this more. Ultimately, we want to help push the collective goals of what’s possible and speed up the process of getting to a place where we’re all comfortably shooting amazing video out under the stars long past sunset. Sounds unlikely, but cameras just continue to amaze us in their progression. Shout out to Canon, as all of this was shot on their cameras.
