There is no better way to learn how to use a piece of editing software than to have a one-on-one with a power user who, with acuity and fluidity, will demonstrate the ins and outs. Not only can you see the approaches and the steps needed to do something, but all the in-between cursor movements and where to find things are highlighted along the way. And it’s particularly good when that someone is a working photographer with skill and patience like our own Tina Eisen, and that’s what she’s done here with Capture One.
If you shoot portraits, weddings, or people in any fashion, this is a Capture One webinar for you, because it hopefully shows that Capture One is both easy to use, and worth it.
One of the best moves Phase One has made for it’s much-loved Capture One in recent times is be particular about whom they work with, and choose working photographers with strong communication who integrate the platform into their daily workflows. Artists like Tina are able to speak to the benefits of Capture One through demonstration rather than in theory.

Tina’s work is exceedingly good and in high demand, and in the webinar she goes through how she uses C1 to achieve the looks she’s known for, highlighting key facets of the software that help a working pro get the right looks with consistency, and speed.
Within the webinar Tina goes through various genres of images from fashion to beauty to portraits, and you’ll learn the practical benefits of tethering, see the toolset Capture One has that no one else does, get an idea of how to colour grade with speed and ease with C1’s famous Colour Editor tool, and more. It’s s useful watch, and if you’re learning C1, it’s one I recommend.
With more people looking to jump ship from that ’other’ editing software company, Capture One is finally getting the wide breadth of attention it deserves. Phase One has sensed the blood in the water and are gunning for new converts. This is good for everyone because what they’ve done is made Capture One 11 its best iteration yet for both legacy users and new.
