Excellent lighting and treatments. Very tasteful.
Well executed and entertaining concept.

Two of these and a camera drone could accommodate most of my portrait sessions from the comfort of my office.

Release the hounds.

On Adobe announces new 'Focus masks' feature in CC update article (18 comments in total)

I'd rather they fix, or return the crop tool to previous versions. I don't mind an option for new crop tool, but forcing me to use it is unacceptable. Adobe has killed my workflow, treating me like a pony in their circus.

Canceling my CC subscription soon, now that I'm spending more time back in CS6. Will consider returning when Adobe respects the way I want to work.

Yes I know many of you like the new crop tool. Good for you. Please don't try and convince me that it's good for me. I think it's broken, and affects my bottom line for business hours spent on image editing. Anything that does that gets the boot.

Contax and Rollie both produced exotic vacuum back cameras to keep the film perfectly flat. Precision German engineering made a really big deal about that back when.

Is Sony throwing us a curve or shooting straight here?

On PicTricks offers cheap photo 'fixes' article (20 comments in total)

Funny some folk claim these type of services are killing off professional photography.

Client based pro-tography was never about retouching, or camera, or studio, or lighting, or sharp lenses, or any of those mechanicals.

The successful PRO-tographer forms good relationships with good clients. Services such as this get me away from the mechanics, and allow me to spend more time building relationships. Pretty simple math.

I'll be checking out PicTricks.

Love it! Kudos to you Keith for shooting something with vision and personal signature... instead of hanging out hating on forums.

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (570 comments in total)

Compared this X-T1 to my Sony a7R in the store recently. I must say the Fuji and lens felt much better in hand all around. The slightly bigger-er size and extreme high quality feel made my little Sony feel cheeky.

Now I know where the old Minolta designers must have reincarnated after Sony killed them off. Big difference when a camera company designs compared to an electronics gaming company.

I've been with Sony since the beginning, and with Minolta for 20 years before that. This Fuji X-T1 felt like a real photographers tool compared to the Sony a7 techno-craft wizbanger.

Good to see any company producing accessories that some photographers can put to very good use.

Bravo Sammy and Cokin!

Handsome camera. But I'll be so happy when the industry finally gets over the retro craze, and start moving ergonomics forward for both horizontal and vertical togs.
