Photographer, mom and educator, Summer Murdock, shares with us her approach to photographing kids and how she uses Replichrome to process her stunning images.

Tell us about yourself, both personally and professionally. How long have you been making photos? How did you get started?

I am a wife, mom, of four kids, a family photographer based outside of Salt Lake City, Utah, and an online workshop teacher. I love a good adventure and try to get outside and explore as much as I can. I have been making photos for almost 8 years now. I think I have always had it in me though. I used to walk around my neighborhood as a kid with my 110mm wind up camera, taking pictures of my dolls among all kinds of other rather boring things. Maybe this isn’t all that uncommon but I remember the sense of enjoyment that it brought me even though I wasn’t making anything that was good. I also remember going to art galleries as a kid and teenager and really gravitating towards the photography exhibits. It has always pulled me. I took a couple classes including a b&w film class back in college. I considered it as my major but my fear of what I perceived as a super cut throat and competitive business scared me away. I let my practical side take over. That is one of my few regrets in life. Almost 8 years ago, I became a bit obsessed with making images. Partly it was because I wanted to capture my children’s lives in a meaningful way, but it has become more than that now. It has become a creative outlet for me that is more fulfilling than I ever imagined it could be. It has become a part of who I am and how I see now.

What are your favorite subjects to photograph?

I love to photograph kids and light. Obviously my own kids are a huge inspiration to me but I love to photograph all kids. Particularly young kids. I love how they see the world with such fresh eyes. Everything is new and full of wonder to them. I remember being that way as a kid and having that feeling when you wake up and think that this might be the most amazing day yet. I try really hard to live my life as an adult that way but, let’s be honest, that’s no easy feat. Light is another thing that is a huge inspiration to me. I often feel like it’s a more dominant part of some of my images than the people are.

summermurdock_05
summermurdock_25

Your photos have an amazing calmness to them. Can you explain a little about your process for making photos and how you select the images that you show to the world?

I have four kids so my life is chaotic at times. There is hardly ever quiet at my house. I think I seek out calm in my photos because I long for more calm in my life. I tend to be attracted to the quiet parts of movement, the moment right before or after something happens. I rarely shoot subjects that are standing still. Even my portraits are usually captured as someone is walking and I say "stop and look at me." I find I get much more authentic and real expressions that way.

My process for making photos is pretty simple actually. My photos usually happen from following my curio. I am a pretty curious person. I have been shooting for a while now and I although I do go though ruts or periods where i feel "uninspired" I still feel pretty excited about taking pictures. I have learned that when I have that little voice in my head that says "oh wow, that is really cool or interesting looking" that that is my cue to run and grab my camera even when I don’t feel like it. Shooting in this way has kept me shooting and enjoying it for almost eight years and I think I love it more now than when I started. It keeps me energized and always pushing myself to try new things and get better.

I share all kinds of images with the world. My only criteria for what I should share and what I shouldn’t would be "do i like this? Is this interesting to me in some way?" I try really hard to just go with my gut and not second guess myself too much. Of course, I am more thoughtful about what images I put in my portfolio, but we live in an interesting world of over-sharing with all the social media outlets and people taking pictures every single day. I am one that thinks it’s actually good for photography. If people are constantly shooting and getting better, they are raising the bar for us all. Growth is a good thing always.

summermurdock_04

Talk a little about your approach to post-processing. What are your preferred tools? How do you know when an image is "finished?"

My approach to post processing is get it right in camera so I don’t have to spend a lot of time editing. If you have interesting light in your images, you often don’t need to edit much. I’d rather be out shooting and exploring than sitting at my computer. The Replichrome presets are some of my go-to tools. I use them on a daily basis. They add the extra something my images need while still making them look natural. I use Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw, and Photoshop as my editing tools. Most of the time I just open my images in ACR apply a preset, tweak a few things, and then save it straight from there and am done. If it needs further tweaking I open in Photoshop. Editing is something that I almost feel my way though; it’s fluid and every image has to be dealt with on a case by case basis. Mostly I know it’s done when I look at it and think "that’s it." I just know it when I see it.

Photographer and Replichrome fanatic, Ryan Longnecker , was chosen to document this year’s Field Trip , a summit for photographers and creatives to connect and create. Ryan brought his documentary style and insider’s point of view to create a series of images that leave us dying to visit Field Trip next year.

What was your approach to shooting Field Trip? What were some of the biggest challenges?

I wanted to immerse myself in the camper’s perspective and try to get a cross section of the scale of what’s offered. I also wanted to connect with the attendees well enough that I didn’t feel like an annoyance, but instead, a friend and fellow creative. Some of the biggest challenges were trying to capture people and the location when light was the best - there was just so much happening that in those windows of time for good light I was still scooting around in my golf cart trying to capture some of the 20 classes/1on1’s/live shoots/craft-making happening at any moment. It was also tough to really follow any of the campers around to get them sharing those "escape" moments where they were able to get portraits of each other. My boundaries were drawn by the schedule so I wasn’t able to peel away as often as I might have if I were just attending.

What surprised you about photographing at Field Trip?

I was surprised at how relaxed the personalities were of some of my creative heroes. I stepped back and watched them share meals with people who are just beginning in the industry - or, who maybe have hit a creative wall - and just talked life with them, heard their stories, had a late night bowl of cereal, and danced with them (like really hard party dancing).

Explain your approach to processing the images. What were you going for? How did you achieve that?

All of the color images were processed with Replichrome Fuji 800Z Noritzu+ and all of the BW images were processed with either Kodak Plus-X 125++ (for the cleaner and night look) or Tri-X++ (for daytime and moody looks). I was going for a look that felt tactile and classic, like old family travel photos but that definitely captured the colors, scale, and moments of the event. I think I get that by always having an itchy shutter finger and my head on a swivel for people laughing, throwing chalk on themselves, jumping in the ocean, or whatever unscheduled fun might be happening. I tend towards having a less faded look so the technical side of it is always dropping the shadows/black slider and since I shoot warm sometimes the greens are too present and I adjust the camera calibration shadows to be slightly more magenta. I also will occasionally relax the grain and add lens corrections. But that’s pretty much it.

Photographer Matt Crump has turned his love for punchy colors and minimal compositions in to an Instagram phenomenon. Read below to learn more about his #candyminimal style and how he uses RadLab to create his signature style.

What inspired the Candy Grid series? Can you explain a little about how you styled/executed the shoot?

I wanted to do something fun and unexpected for Halloween last year, so instead of photographing fun costumes or scary stuff, I focused on everyone’s favorite part of the holiday: candy. I also wanted to experiment with arrangement art, so I thought this would be the perfect time to try it. I bought every kind of candy I could think of and then came up with a minimalist design concept on solid-colored backgrounds for each photo.

What were some of the challenges you faced in doing this series? What surprised you?

Getting jelly beans to stay still is hard. One tiny nudge and your perfectly arranged composition is now rolling across the floor in every direction. Another challenge was not eating my art supplies. The most surprising part of the series was the interaction I got from my followers. Before I started the series, I took requests for what candies I should use, and lots and lots of people wanted to see their favorite candies on my feed.

Originally, your #candyminimal shots were edited with mobile apps, (I think?) can you explain why you switched to editing them on the desktop and where RadLab comes in?

I hit a plateau in terms of the quality I could achieve on mobile, and I wanted to keep growing as an artist. Desktop editing is more elegant and rich, and you can quickly do things on a desktop that would take a long time on mobile. I’m not bashing mobile editing: it’s how I got my start and it taught me the basics of editing, but stepping up from mobile has improved the quality of my work. As a mobile photographer, I love filters, and that’s why I use RadLab . It gives me lots of control over every aspect of each filter—something you can’t achieve on mobile.

Husband and wife photo/video team, and Totally Rad! users, Danni and Wil Rivera wanted to do something different.

"Everyday my social media feeds overflow with images from carefully curated and beautifully executed styled shoots," said Danni Rivera. "Yes, they’re all different in a way, but the majority of them look the same. Beautiful models, beautiful details, beautiful venues." Over a bottle of wine, the couple joked "Wouldn’t it be funny if Hudson and Chelsea got Married?"

Their love for the furry members of their family inspired a fantastic, styled puppy wedding shoot called #HUDSONLOVESCHELSEA. With puppy treats, puppy invitations, and even puppy guests.

"To us, it’s very important that our photo work and our video work look similar" says Danni. And to accomplish that, they turned to the Replichrome presets for Lightroom from Totally Rad. All the still photos and video clips for #HUDSONLOVESCHELSEA were processed with Replichrome.

"Thankfully, I learned how crucial, beautiful, and simple presets are to the photo and video editing process early in my career and found Totally Rad!" said Danni. "I have never used anything else and probably never will!"

To learn how to apply Replichrome presets to your video clips in Lightroom, check out our tutorial here.

<![CDATA[Brooklyn My Way]]> http://www.gettotallyrad.com/blog/brooklyn-my-way http://www.gettotallyrad.com/blog/brooklyn-my-way post Thu, 04 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400


During her recent trip to Brooklyn, we asked our friend, Oriana Koren, to document her adventures using our Replichrome II: Slide Film for Lightroom presets. We caught up with her afterward to hear about the unique approach she took to her visit, and to see how it led to truly incredible photos and experiences.


If you ask anyone about Brooklyn, they’ll probably say things like ‘hip’ or ‘cool’ or mention Williamsburg. To me, Brooklyn has been synonymous with things like Jamaican beef patties, hip-hop, brownstones, and brown people. In the wake of the rapid gentrification of Brooklyn, along with numerous American cities, I wanted to explore the Brooklyn I’d heard about as a kid from my West Indian friends in middle school: Carnival, the Brooklyn Mos Def talks about in ‘Black on Both Sides’, the Brooklyn I came to love in Spike Lee films like ‘She’s Gotta Have It’, the Brooklyn I feared no longer existed because of gentrification.

With this in mind, I set out to document Brooklyn over the course of three days, my way, using the Replichrome filters exclusively. I wanted a little bit of the gritty, nostalgic feeling you get from shooting film to document this weekend. Thinking back on all the disposable cameras I would shoot on my early trips around NYC, I knew I wanted these images to have the feeling of snapshots but to look beautiful and carefully considered at the same time.

I gave myself a few rules for documenting and, most importantly, experiencing Brooklyn:

1) Have conversations with everyone. I wanted to get a sense of how folks felt about their borough and neighborhoods. For instance, one person gave me this little gem about Brooklyn: "You ask people from Manhattan where they’re from and they say ‘New York City’ but you ask people from Brooklyn where they’re from and they say ‘I’m from BROOKLYN!’ People here love their borough. They are proud to be from Brooklyn."

2) Walk. As a photographer, walking is my main mode of transportation because it allows me to observe and seek moments to photograph. Walking also helps you feel like part of community you are visiting, as opposed to feeling like an outsider or tourist.

3) Skip Williamsburg. I wanted to challenge my notions about where to find "Brooklyn cool" while in Brooklyn. So, I stuck to neighborhoods that aren’t always first to be mentioned when talking about Brooklyn. The borough is so large and the neighborhoods are so varied that it’s worth it to explore places you might not always think to go.

I’ve never had a better, more fulfilling trip to NYC and I can’t wait to go back to Brooklyn again!

What does mobile photography mean to you?

“As cheesy as it sounds, mobile photography has played a huge role in my creative re-awakening. In my younger years, and all the way through school, photography, graphic design & art played a huge role in my life, it was my life. After I graduated from design school life took a few turns that took me away from the creative life, and for a long time I was busy just going about the everyday routine. It was good, but I was desperately missing that creative outlet. Along came Instagram and the chance to document life’s little moments as well as connect, be inspired, encouraged & share with other creatives, it’s a wonderfully amazing thing!” “The best part is now my boys are old enough to enjoy Instagram with me, while our subjects are different, we can share the creative experience together, and my daughter is still young enough that she doesn’t mind being my subject, although she is already showing a desire to be on the other side of the camera.”

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

"PicTapGo is beyond awesome! I use it for all my pictures. I love that you can layer filters, and it’s just all around easy to use. I almost always use Lights On, however, I find that I go through stages on the filters that I use, depending on the style mood I am currently in. Right now, I am loving the new Replichrome Mini filters , especially 400H."

Kara Deyoung is an amateur photographer who loves capturing beauty and peace amid her sometimes hectic days spent documenting her family’ s adventures.


PicTapGo Featured Photographer

What does mobile photography mean to you?

I have always been passionate about photography, but to me it always seemed so intimidating. To create the kinds of images that I loved and admired, I felt like I would need better equipment, better editing tools, and not to mention twice as many hours in a day… with a growing family underfoot, it just didn’t seem like all that was within my reach. Mobile photography was a huge game-changer for me! I could easily snap a photo with my phone, no fancy gear required. Instead of feeling like I needed to spend hours learning editing tricks, with PicTapGo I was able to intuitively adjust my image to achieve the look I wanted. I’ve been able to develop my eye, play with light, and most of all “meet” and interact with photographers I have admired for years. And all during nap time!

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

PicTapGo is, hands down, my favorite photography app. For a hobbyist like me, I love how user-friendly it is. I think I’ve converted most of my friends and family to PicTapGo and I’m always amazed at the gorgeous images they are able to create! Although I have my favorite filters, Lights On, Skinny Jeans, and Milk and Cookies, to name a few, I really love using them all.

Amanda Julca is an international editorial, portrait, travel and entertainment photographer, born and raised on a river in the Midwest, transplanted to tropical Miami Beach, Florida. Her work is a stunning study in textures and daily life.


PicTapGo Featured Photographer

What does mobile photography mean to you?

The ability to take images of my everyday life, as it’s happening and without the interference of my large DSLR has become a routine of mine, much like writing a daily journal. I’m able to look through all the images I’ve taken and recall precise moments relating to the image or the day it was taken.

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

I love being able to layer all my favorite filters to instantly create a style and representation of what and how I see. Since they were first released years ago, I’ve been using variations of Totally Rad! Actions in Photoshop on my professional portfolio. Now, having those similar features on the PicTapGo app readily available on my phone, I am able to keep that consistent style across the board. In the busy day-to-day, I also appreciate having an app that has such convenient sharing options and is so amazingly easy to use.

PicTapGo Featured Photographer

What does mobile photography mean to you?

Mobile photography has opened my eyes to a world, that a year ago, I was oblivious to. Through following photographers I admired on Instagram, I began to think more about composition, and realized that an interesting crop and editing can make a huge difference to an image. I have taken part in several daily projects on Instagram, which encouraged the creative side, and until recently I took everything with my iPhone. However, after buying a second hand DSLR and having two lessons I am increasingly in love with the subtlety and precision you can achieve. I find PicTapGo really enables me to enhance the light in my pictures.

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

I edit everything with my iPhone, and I love working with PicTapGo. Possibly, my favorite feature is that the sliders are very sensitive. I also love the way the filters can be layered as many times as you like without having a bring up a new file each time. I think the filters are very sympathetic, and I can enhance an image in a way that really suits my style, whereas I find other editing apps a little heavy handed.

<![CDATA[The Subway Series]]> http://www.gettotallyrad.com/blog/the-subway-series http://www.gettotallyrad.com/blog/the-subway-series post Mon, 04 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400

As a full-time photographer, Evan Pantiel was looking for a way to balance the everyday photo assignments that pay his bills and his need for creativity. He found the answer in the subway stations of the Stockholm Metro, and began his Subway Portrait Series , processed with Replichrome II: Slide , which gives us a glimpse of Stockholm’s diverse culture.

Pantiel isn’t Swedish, and his outsider’s perspective helped him notice a cultural trend in Stockholm, SE. While using the city’s metro, he observed that each of its three lines, red, green, and blue, had its own distinct style. He began documenting each set of track’s unique riders, creating a compelling portrait of the lines’ personalities.

Every photo in Pantiel’s subway series reveals something about the subject. He uses consistent framing and editing for each image, which allows their unique personalities to shine. Three elements come together for this effect. First, the background, Pantiel chooses a spot in the subway station with great color and texture. Second is the framing. He always center weights his subjects. Third is editing. For consistency, he chooses a preset from Replichrome II: Slide that pairs well with colors of the background he used for the portrait. By combining these three steps, a uniform look is created, which allows the subject’s unique personality to stand out in each photo.

For Pantiel, each photo is a challenge. He doesn’t speak the language fluently, and his subjects are usually in a rush and don’t want to stop, but he never lets difficulty slow him down. His favorite image of the entire series came from a tricky situation. While searching for his next photo, he noticed a priest, and immediately knew he wanted to take his portrait. Pantiel’s girlfriend approached the priest to ask him in Swedish if they could take his photo, but he didn’t understand. Next, she tried English. No luck. German, same thing. Eventually they tried Spanish. After asking, "Tienes un photo por favor?" the priest agreed. Relieved, Pantiel thanked him, and the priest responded in Swedish. He had been multi-lingual the entire time, and thought it would be a funny joke to pretend he didn’t understand.

Pantiel could’ve given up the first time the priest pretended not to understand, but he persevered. It’s a testament to his passion and creativity. He is dedicated to his art. The result is a truly unique series of photos that create a portrait of the diverse lives traveling through Stockholm’s underground.

PicTapGo Featured Photographer

What does mobile photography mean to you?

Originally, it didn’t mean much to me. There’s only so much control you have over a picture you take on your phone, and that was always frustrating to me. I could never get the picture I wanted. Once I heard about PicTapGo that all changed. I can take my phone pictures and manipulate them into the images that I want with cool filters and options to edit lighting and contrast. But mainly, mobile photography means lots and lots of cat pictures….

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

My favorite thing about PicTapGo is that it gives me the tools that I need to edit my pictures and still feel like the picture is mine when I’m done editing it. A lot of apps out there seem to take your picture and turn it into their ‘look’ or the current trend. I enjoy seeing diversity in my pictures. I also love how quick PicTapGo is, I mean, hint’s in the name. I can take a pic and edit it without it taking up all my time. My favorite filters are High Fives, Sweet Tooth, Montecito and Loft.

North Carolina based photographer Ginny Corbett is a cultivator of life. Her images are a travel treasure map, revealing secluded spots in cities, forests, and on beaches.


What does mobile photography mean to you?

To me, photography is the act of consecrating moments, slowing down and engaging this beautiful life. Having my iPhone with me at all times allows me to honor the moments that bring me life, and with PicTapGo, I can add a bit of my own creativity to that which has been already created.

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

What I love the most about PicTapGo is that I can work in layers, achieving a look that is completely unique to me and how I see. I love that I can change the opacity of each filter to create an edit that is not louder than the image. I also love that PicTapGo allows me to crop and post images that are not square to Instagram by adding white framing around the image.
The filters I use the most are Crispity, Vanilla Kiss, and Pier Pressure.

What does mobile photography mean to you?

Mobile photography has truly been a gift for me. It allows me to capture the moments that I want without having to lug around my DSLR. I can quickly pull out my phone, snap a shot, put it away and then continue to be present in what I’m doing. It has also allowed me to find a great community of like-minded people on Instagram, and helped me to boost my confidence as a photographer. I didn’t really find a distinct style until I started shooting with my phone.

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

PicTapGo is my go to app. I can’t remember the last time I used a different one! It’s easy to use, and the filters are great. My favorite filters are Terra, Awake, Montecito, and Skinny Jeans.

Dance photographer Jeri Tidwell combines her DSLR, an Eye-Fi card, and PicTapGo to quickly and easily share her gorgeous images as they happen.

I am a dance photographer located half-way between Balitmore, MD and D.C. I’ve been in the photography business for almost ten years, but slowly made the transition to being a dance photographer over the last four years. The dancers I photograph are so talented, and I consider myself very lucky to work with them. We do some crazy fun concept shoots, and use the greatest locations. I believe it helps the whole creative process that I am still a dancer at heart. I take ballet classes when my schedule allows me to do so, and I love that dancing is a part of my life.

What does mobile photography mean to you?

Personally, mobile photography is such a blessing to me. I worry less about my camera, and focus more on creating memories with my family. This is different though- my @jeritidwellphotography Instagram account is all business. I always photograph my amazing clients with my Canon 5d Mark III, and I use an Eye-fi card (Wi-Fi) during my sessions. The images go straight from my camera to my phone. After a quick edit in PicTapGo, they are ready for Instagram. It really is the best of both worlds. I have my RAW files, but I also get a low-res image for super fast sharing. I’ve even shared images with my dancers before leaving a shoot, because they love sharing the images as much as I do.

What is your favorite PicTapGo feature?

Layering. I layer so many filters at different strengths to achieve the look I want. I have a long list of favorites, but my favorite four are Crispity, +Contrast, Faux-Fi, and Brightside. Wait, I have to add Awake and Air to that list.
