In the video below Dayron Vera, a former ballet dancer describes taking up photography following his career as a dancer as a way to stay connected to the art of dance, and how his passion and dedication enables his creativity as a photographer.
The story is from a Capture One series of videos designed to give voice to three individual photographers across dance, food and cityscape disciplines.
Considering I spend hours each day in their program, it’s great to see Capture One support photographers and offer us a glimpse into the world of unique disciplines while telling the story behind one of their most striking images. Being sponsored, the videos include how Capture One is used to achieve their best work during the image editing process. I like seeing that too because I’ve found everyone captures and edits their work slightly different.
Dedication is a topic addressed in the first video and Vera says:
“It’s not about hours. You cannot be a dedicated person and think in minutes. It’s about time; it’s about years.”
Years into my career, I absolutely agree. Capture One’s Dedication Campaign will continue for the next several weeks. And, according to this timeline also includes a competition.
The details of the competition haven’t been announced, but Capture One told me,
“The competition will be open to public submissions, and allow for participating creatives to connect on their own shared passions and dedication to their photography processes.”
In its 11th version, Capture One got an overhaul of the Local Adjustments tool, among other features like layers. My favorite “feature” of the version is Capture One finally offers style packs with film emulations.
