SandyF's recent activity

  • Thanks, I found I could pull back/restore the color rather nicely, I thought, just using SPP. I don't process in other RAW programs, just an occasional cropping tool in DPP. I like to shoot flowers...
  • I've always found hot reds, full sun, to be the main 'stress test' rather than yellows! I shot a hot red tulip yesterday in full sun, just played around with processing it in SPP, no further...
  • FWIW, I think the answer is, "it depends" ... upon your subject indoors, for example. I take very few indoor photos, but I looked through my DP2Merrill set here...
  • Those landscapes are NOT impressive... and that's the polite version. Flat. Blurry rocks, fuzzy details. Best regards, Sandyhttp://www.pbase.com/sandyfleischman...
  • I've been there several times, most recently 2 years ago. Petroglyph Canyon is one of my favorite places anywhere. In addition, this year I hope we can do justice to the White Domes area and...

  • Spring has definitely arrived! It's actually rather warm and husband is threatening to turn on air-conditioning in the house.... From yesterday's early evening walk in Meadowlark Gardens park in...
  • The files of the earlier generation Sigma cameras aren't as large as the Merrill sensor files, thus the write-to-card times are faster: Sigma SD15 (DSLR) and DP2 (same sensor as the SD15) come to...
  • I use SPP almost exclusively with my Sigma cameras. The trick with the DP2Merrill is exposure, exposure, exposure. Do not underexpose the Merrill sensor. If anything, I consciously 'push' the...
  • What used to drive me slightly nuts when shooting primarily SD14, DP1, DP2 was that the overall 'color' from the RAW files varied rather greatly. SD14 more yellow/greenish, DP1 more magenta, DP2...
  • I wouldn't say that re-saturation is "broadly needed" .....  but I will say that one aspect of shooting Sigma/Foveon RAW that I (and I think many others) appreciate is that the color is usually...
  • Scilla bulb coming into bloom, from a walk in Meadowlark Gardens park on Saturday early evening. I put 2 versions online, one processed with a normal or natural look, and another processed with SPP...
  • Thanks, and an apology if I sounded above negative to your sharing your results. Best regards, Sandyhttp://www.pbase.com/sandyfleischman (archival)http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandyfleischmann...
  • FWIW, here's a post with my SPP workflow. I generally work entirely in SPP, unless I want to crop or straighten, which I do in Canon's Digital Photo Pro. I print in SPP, from just same-size JPEG...
  • Lin, what drives me crazy about Canon AF system is their multi-point AF. I mentally think of it as their 'twinkly lights always changing focus point' system. Not the tracking system,  it even jumps...
  • Mike, one weird situation of my SD14 vs SD15 and various lenses with regard to AF is that I find some lenses work better on one camera than on the other. Example: my favorite combo for years with...
  • You might wish to take a look at my SD15 set on flickr link below, note especially some Hawaiian landscapes and naturals. FWIW, I opted to get a SD15 rather than a SD1(M) ....BUT I already owned...
  • I was surprised in several images that the Sony seemed sharper than the Sigma DP3Merrill. But then I read you edited, including sharpening, the Sony but not the Sigma! That seems unequal in...
