  • Indeed... but I'd add that sometimes the "technical" isn't really so technical as much as it is creative decisions that affect the quality (not technical quality though, but emotional, textural, ...
  • Yeah, I totally agree with you. A dedicated camera (the right one!) can certainly help to get a higher level of image quality in a wider range of conditions and is obviously necessary for all ...
  • Question: is an iphone unique as far as camera phones? Or... do we keep hearing about it mostly becuase it's such a popular model? Are there many other phone models, I wonder that are as nice as ...
  • Replied in Leica or.....
    Just curious, but what does the X100T lack for you, other than the ability to swap lenses?
  • Well... to be fair, I think that folks are thinking of a camera with old-school manual focus. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion. Those old cameras made it a lot easier to do that to with the ...
  • Well put... I'm not against getting deep into photo shop and using layers, masks, gradients and lots of different kinds of adjustments on a single image. Still, there's a point in which the image ...
  • I'm familiar with most of the photographers folks have mentioned here and that's lead me to believe that photography is an artform that's very well represented by women... more so it seems than ...
  • Good point... though to be clear, I have no problem with "doctoring the image." I do it al the time!
  • Replied in No...
    I don't have a camera that has super-fast burst or continuous AF that's rated really great. Still, I did experiment with those things when I got the camera.... and realized that I didn't really ...
  • OK... I get it. Do you like using that thing? I'm pretty good with Photoshop.... so is it likely to be useful to me in addition to it?
  • I wonder if there's a free old version floating around somewhere for Photoshop CS4..?
  • I loved my old film cameras, a Nikon FE and a Minolta X570 and there would be something very cool about being able to use them as digital camreas. Still, I know in my heart that those cameras or ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    girl-blur
  • Replied in why not...
    ... get the Rockinon 12mm f2.0, save yourself a lot of money and have a faster lens. You can still use the kit lens that you have for anything longer than the dedicated wide angle prime... and ...

    I'm a graphic designer too and I think that what you're talking about is kind of the "old school" way of doing it. It seems that JPEGs are used more and more for printing. In fact I worked at a ...
  • Replied in have a look
    I pretty much agree with you though I certainly think that out of the camera JPEGs CAN look great and I certainly don't question the motives some very good photographers (better than I!) who use ...
  • Replied in have a look
    Two problems with what you're saying here: first of all when you talk about (I'm using your words) what's "good looking," that's a really subjective thing. You might like to see something darker, ...
  • Well... I love the work of the last three mentioned and not so much Lik or the other two... but I agree, it really all comes down to salesmanship for me, and lots of artists in one way or another ...
  • I do agree with you here... though I realize that I/we are in danger of getting far off of the original topic. I'm someone who knows a little about the history and aesthetics of the medium and ...
  • Replied in have a look
    I feel like you're making an assumption that those of us who shoot RAW are necessarily doing so in order to get some sort of HDR type dynamic range. This certainly isn't the case with me and I'm a ...
