Gerry Winterbourne's recent activity

  • There's nothing in the definition of either "elusive" or "subjective" that prevents them being dramatic ... ... insofar as either (or, indeed, nearly any other) word can be said to have a definition.
  • True. Which is why I wrote due etti rather than un' etto .
  • I think that's right. The indefinite article "a" makes all the difference between a "a quarter of salami" - meaning a quarter of whatever the local unit of weight is - and "a quarter of a salami". ...
  • You need to tell us what software you are using. It also helps if you post some raw files. You can't do that directly - you have to use something like DropBox, where you upload the files and then ...
  • Replied in Editing raw
    For raw editing (which is what the OP is asking about) Photoshop incorporates Adobe Camera Raw, which is virtually identical to LR. In other words, LR is not easier than PS for the things that ...
  • First time, when I found that the camera I'd bought didn't have the flexibility of controls I wanted. Since then, if a new model offers a feature (or features) that either (a) I've been wanting or ...
  • Replied in Editing raw
    Like everyone else, my advice is to start with DPP. It may be that you'll never need anything else; or it might not suit you - but the only way to find out is to try it.
  • In Italy "hecto" is "etto" and the natural way of buying 200g of salami is vorrai due etti salame, per favore .  (My spelling may not be perfect). The "gram" is omitted as understood, in the same ...
  • Replied in Zoom vs. prime
    It's not a matter of generation : there are old prime lenses of very different quality and new prime lenses of very different quality; there are old zoom lenses of very different quality and new ...
  • Replied in More diddums
    And if they choose not to cover their expenses, then what? Where's the con? There is a vast range of photographic equipment available to cover a vast range of wants and/or needs. There is more ...
  • Camera makers have been failing steadily for many years because they didn't make enough profit. Even Leica, with its high prices, hasn't been immune. In real terms prices are probably lower now ...
  • Some others have cut out DSLR from your question. For me, one of the hardest things was realising (and then understanding why) digital photography is very different from film photography in its ...
  • ... presumably Lightroom, because as well as being a picture editor it is also a file management tool (that is, like the van it carries everything). PS includes ACR, which works virtually ...
  • This is open to opinion. In terms of their processing hearts they are virtually identical (by this I mean Adobe Camera Raw in PS and the Develop module in LR). After that PS certainly has many ...
  • And when you go to the Adobe website there are links on the Lightroom page to a lot of instruction videos and a user manual.
  • Adobe Camera Raw is part of PSE, so PSE can work on raw files - but only in its ACR module. The fact that PSE allows sharpening and noise reduction in both modules suggests the answer to your ...
  • Replied in Wrong
    This is imply not true. Modern DSLRs have the same facility in Live View that you describe. If you are going to advise people, make sure your advice is correct. Ditto DSLR. Ditto DSLR. So you don't ...
  • The photo looks too bright; if you shot by ETTR that's fine but then you should bring the shadows down in PP. Using ISO100 would give you a shutter speed of 1/125s - that's OK for a slowly moving ...
  • Cropping and PP don't create noise - what they do is magnify the noise that's already there. What we see as noise is random variation in the light reaching the sensor. All light is subject to noise ...
  • That's about 100 shots a day ; in your other thread you said The photographers whose work you want to emulate would be glad if the got 100 top-quality photos in a lifetime . If you want to do ...
