About me:

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

In reply to:

jj74e: It's kind of sad. I guess video is the superior medium and technology was really the only limiting factor for a wide range of people to really start adopting it.

Kind of disappointed...not only is photography dying out, but it means more competition over YouTube, college, workshops, internships for video, when it has been somewhat easier to find your niche....but then again it means more resources, more education, more awareness, and possibly more audiences.

As a high school senior, I hope no matter what major I end up picking, that photography/video can remain a big part of my life. There's just something about those mediums that can translate into powerful messages that couldn't be communicated otherwise.

Don't be too disheartened. I think this can be of encouragement for you, in that it will test out your mettle and desire to create quality work that will stand out.

It's always sad to loss an innovator. The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 seems drool worthy, something I look forward to getting some time in the future. My condolences to the family.

Hmm, no "Recovery" slider. I wonder what will do the same function? I liked my highlight recovery.

In reply to:

Jogger: Basically heres how it works. It has a VERY small sensor. ie. everything is in focus, for each pixel you also know its depth.

In post process, you can selectively blur based on the depth of the pixel... i.e. the out of focus areas you see are digitally created... i.e not real.

Look up plenoptic camera. I believe that's how it works, not like what you're saying.

In reply to:

Fred Dominic: I don't know, the synthetic image doesn't bother me that much, it is research and the product is not ready yet, and it is not as if they are offering it for sale yet. Often people will test their algorithms on synthetic data first, before testing it on real data. I'm certain that they won't include it in CS6 if it doesn't work on real images.

Is no one bothered, however, by the ridiculous person who was on stage at the same time of the presentation, the person going on about what an "algorithm" is, and that "you should sell this"? I found that distracting, insipid, and technically profane.

He wasn't too funny, I agree. But being caught like Adobe was, isn't too funny either.

Haha. Wow. Caught red handed. Nice work Adobe. Sheesh!

JJJPhoto: Wow! If Adobe can make this work in real life as good as it did in the demo then we may never need in-lens or in-body image stabilization ever again.

I would think getting it correct at the start is the best way for anything, instead of fixing it later.

At least there won't be peeling rubber like I have on my Nikon and S5 Pro body.

On Portraits shot with natural light only challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

gerry328: Does natural light mean sunlight only or is the ambient indoor light from, say a ceiling lamp also considered "natural light" since it is not from the flash? What about studio lighting?

I think the term natural would encompass nature, not man-made lighting.

Beautiful location and image. That's great your bright highlights don't get the dreaded purple fringing, or was that post processed out?
