Dylan Borgman: Can anyone clarify if the LAB color readout is simply a color inspector or it allows us to manipulate curves in LAB space?
Curves in LAB would be a great improvement.
Come on... I know you guys can do it!Still waiting for Facial Recognition!
Well, I'll chime in in favor of..
No. Sorry... Tried, but this is not cool.
DPReview: Why you post crap ads as if they are news? Did anyone on your staff actually purchase and check this out? Anyone?
Quick question: what about other lights in the room? Is this shot in total darkness except for the primary light? Do the lights in the room even matter? The models shadow dissappears in all of the shots showing the setup (to make everything clear). Is this a change or how the whole scene actually looks during the shoot? Or did someone turn on other lights to capture the setup.
Looks good so far. Love the geo-tagging. Great summary (typical DPReview greatness) that led to as many good questions as provided answers. But, with 4b downloading in the background, I'll soon know the answers.
Will be interesting to see how presets translate (or don't).
One major omission: facial recognition. I know it's considered a noob feature and Adobe won't get into it until it can be done really well. Not everyone will use it, but for those of us with thousands of pictures of some of the people in the library it would be amazing.
Dolan Halbrook: Kind of surprised there's still no facial recognition for tagging.
I agree. This would be my number one feature request. Even if it wasn't perfect.
Thanks. I will spend some time doing this. I think I'm a pretty good photographer now, but am always looking for ways to "see" better so I can capture better.
To those who feel the need to complain for some reason: "You don't practice until you get it right, you practice until you can't get it wrong." As with anything, practicing a technique like this won't result in your suddenly having to take five seconds to take a shot. What it will do is increase your awareness of what's actually in the frame and how it works. Slowing down intentionally allows that to grow. After some time doing something like this, you will be able to see much more in the frame in less time. But, I don't need to describe the value of practice to those of you with already perfect technique.

Please don't make this open to everyone. One of the best things about this site is the community. Registration is easy; keep it mandator. Other than that... NICE feature!
