  • I can't really claim to know just what percentage of pros shoot RAW or JPEG but I don't even really think that this is very important to the discussion here. The fact is, is that certainly many ...
  • To be fair, folks here were mainly speaking about doing in-camera JPEG conversions, so they technically aren't shooting straight JPEGs with the loss of dynamic range that you speak of. If we ...
  • OK, I read that and it's not really adding anything to my understanding of the subject. I get that cameras have gotten more and more sophisticated and it is possible to do more processing stuff in ...
  • I love the idea of using a really wide lens and then making the images look not so "fishy." I like the fisheye look actually, but only for certainly kinds of images.... I really like wide ...
  • Everyone has their own process and I'm 100% OK with that. If you're enjoying it and it gets you the results you're after than I'm all for it. That being said though, I don't really seem the ...
  • Seriously, you really believe that...? Folks just shoot RAW and process because it makes them feel "more like a pro...?" That's just really ignorant, I have to say. How is it that you know so much ...
  • Good point... then I take back everything I said! Wait and get the perfect one, then...
  • Life's too short to wait around for some piece of new gear while you could be taking photographs. Seems like the G6 is a nice camera and if you've researched it and it fits your needs, why not? ...
  • I don't agree at all with this presumption that "the craft is gone" in the age of digital photography. Sure, there are a lot of folks more preoccupied by the capabilities of whatever gear they ...
  • Replied in Agree 100%!
    My thoughts as well... Rare to take an image that I don't feel that I can improve on a bit with some processing. Even if it's a really slight and really quick change. I'll often spend a lot of ...
  • Stopped to gas up and stretch out legs before getting to our final destination on the outer banks... While I was waiting for the car to get filled up, I snapped this shot. I used a picnic table ...
  • I'm interested in what folks have to say here. I have a GH2 and when I got it I was really worried about scratching the LCD so I bought a protector for it... Never used it though and I wasn't ...
  • At least that's the way that I see it. With a wider lens, shooting something that's likely to be closer to you, you can walk toward or away from the subject more easily to get the framing just ...
  • Well... that 720 filter clearly isn't anything like "IR only" as you can easily see through it. A darker value filter that only lets IR light in would be the thing to test out, as that lighter ...
  • I'm skeptical... and not because I'm some sort of IR expert either. I was chasing the same thing a while ago. I have this old Canon point and shoot A620 camera that I had read has a weak IR filter ...

    Thanks for the kudos, I was pretty happy to grab that shot. I don't often get the good "random" sort of people shots like that, but I try to be really be in the moment when I'm shooting so that if ...
  • Actually, I didn't use burst mode with that. I only recently got a camera that does that (or shoots RAW or does a lot of other cool stuff for that matter) and though I experimented with it a bit ...
  • I kind of doubt that you're going to have any success with this method of infrared. In order to do it, you either need to use a very old digital camera that was made with weak IR filtration or ...
  • Replied in Jazz Festival
    Here are a few photos that I took at Portland, Oregon's own Cathedral Park Jazz Festival. All the shots of musicians are group called George Colligan's Theoretical Planets, who were great... ...
