  • Replied in My view...
    I actually think that more pixels could be useful. More room to crop and possibly less noise. Still a 20mp vs a 16mp sensor isn't a very big jump. It seems to me that if you increase the mp by a ...
  • Isn't that 12-32mm zoom the one that doesn't have a manual focus control? I don't know if I'd like that because it seems that it too many circumstances where whatever I'm shooting is a bit hard to ...
  • Good point and just how I was thinking about it. It really all depends on just how illegal (and unethical) the proposition is. I'm willing to skirt the law a bit for a nice shot but just a bit...
  • Replied in M4/3
    if you're willing to accept a few year old design, probably one without a viewfinder and lesser good high ISO specs, you might be able to find a decent m4/3 camera. The kit zoom and then the ...
  • Nice photo... it has a strong enough sense of form that it would seem to work well in B&W as well. Also, I'm curious about a few things. First of al why f5.6? Why not a smaller aperture so you'd ...
  • Damn... maybe if they realize that you could be slagging them for so many photographers here on DPR, they'd hook you up with a part! That's a real peeve of mine: any company that doesn't do ...
  • Created discussions Questions about Raw Therapy...
    I've been using this great free raw development program, LightZone and often a combination of that and Photoshop for processing my photos. I like that program, but I guess that because I'm curious ...
  • I don't know what you've done the processing here but I really like the contrast and colors that you're getting here. Crisp and understated is the word...
  • That's a really nice shot. Well composed, focused and capturing the moment very well. Makes me lust after the pro version of that 40-150 lens I just got though. I don't really shoot too much with ...
  • These photos are from an afternoon a couple of weeks ago. I'm one of the organizers of a jazz festival happening in August here in Portland, Oregon (I do graphic design and some photography for ...
  • Very nice work! ... and folks say that m4/3 is too small a format to shoot averrable light stuff.
  • Wow... hard to believe that folks said that stuff. I thought it was common knowledge that the GM brands are all made from pretty much the same blanks... I always thought that it was a bit of an ...
  • He might be clear about that, but he isn't correct about it. It probably a nice thing to hear though if you really think that the best way to improve what you do is to NOT learn anything more ...
  • Once again... it seems like your streching this metaphor way too far. As if to master any of the arts you'd be spending no more effort than making a bed... Wouldn't that be nice... The idea is that ...
  • I agree that argument of pure freedom is a pretty naive one. Here's an illustration: if you give a few different kids a piano to bang on with no instructions, if you have a big enough group as a ...
  • A lot of folks naively believe that if something looks simple to do, then it must be. I know that there are schools for flower arranging. I don't know what they study, but I'm sure that if there's ...
  • Cool... thanks for the info. I am as you say "instruction manual adverse" and still kinda bummed that I couldn't find an E-M10 book (that's no a Kindle edition). Still maybe I just need to buy one ...
  • Feel... or really more accurately intuition (the creative impulse) is important, but so is an understanding of the basic aesthetic priciples (you call them "rules"). The idea idea that one is able ...
  • This is what I'm focused on... Most of the art that folks know and care about was created by artists with some training. I don't buy the idea that a Picasso or DaVinci work is only enjoyed by ...
  • I've been using a GH2 for a couple of years... my first really good digital camera (before that it was a canon P & S). I've really enjoyed that camera and have been impressed at how much detail, ...
