  • Replied in Perspective
    I like the image and lighting, but have to disagree with others on the editing.  I think it's a bit patchy.  Not horrible, but not remarkably good either.  :-/
  • Lighting, IQ and sharpness are nice. My niggles - not enough headroom* & dead on square to the camera** is a little marginal unless they specifically requested it. *  In this age of high resolution ...
  • I'm letting you know!  :-)  You'll get some wild treatments, but some good ones too. While a few might help here, this is certainly far more appropriate in Retouching as it concerns post processing ...
  • Replied in Old Photo
    Spot on to my vision Claude!  I didn't have the time but you've interpreted this well.
  • Certainly none of the $300/hour retouchers would ever tell if they did use plug ins or their jobs might be at risk. There's of course a rather large number of categories in between the local corner ...

    I agree the color is way off - the subject is great while the BG is quite distracting. If it were only him, standing alone in a field....it would be excellent! It would actually be very simple for ...
  • It arrived today - I bolted it on with the stock thumbscrews and washers and it holds quite solidly.  I suppose one could add larger washers but I tried twisting it, hanging it, and everything I ...
  • I use Portraiture if needed - I have my own custom setups - or will create customized looks depending on the requirements.  I have it set up with triggered actions and also use it in batch on ...
  • Hi Rob - color on this one for sure.  Compositionally there's a lot of chaos going on so the color helps differentiate. On an aside, I read through some of your pages - what an interesting life!  I ...
  • This is link the comes from the splash screen which is invoked when running the base C1 program. - https://www.phaseone.com/en/Online-Store/Sony-upgrades.aspx? I don't recall how/where the base ...
  • Thanks so much! I bought the 70-200 f4 G as what I thought was a compromise at the time - to save on bulk vs a "proper" 70-200 2.8 (which I had sold in the process of changing systems).  I have to ...
  • I'd add a shallow DOF is nice for some images, but if you're shooting events or other things the f4 is more practical for general shooting 126mm f4 1/250 - http://photography.karenengel.com/img/s3/ ...
  • I try to visualize what kind of images I'm intending to produce (including locations and shooting style) and find the lens that fits the job. Next, I look for sample images first, and specs second. ...
  • LR6 or similar would be very good considering you didn't mention any other alternative.  Much more important than sharpening is color and exposure adjustability of RAW files. Also - Double check ...
  • Thanks for this link - he has some excellent resources/advanced tutorials on his website - http://www.fx-ray.com/FX-Ray/tutorials/
  • IMO All this isn't necessarily related to the eternal payment scheme. I use LR6 - not the CC version and am 100% happy with it. There are many versions over many years before LR6 which untold ...
  • Operative word - SOME. I have Capture One Pro and prefer LR.  It fits my workflow better and does everything I need.   There is absolutely nothing wrong with the quality of it's RAW conversion, in ...
  • I need to clarify my OP - the good catchlight is camera LEFT - the odd one is camera RIGHT. Thanks Pix - FWIW here's the close to finished image (screenshot) I agree the reflections add to the ...
  • Replied in Raw Question
    I don't think that's the case.  Sony RAW is only RAW.  In some models you have the choice between compressed and uncompressed - but any in camera "styles" aren't ever written into the RAW data... ...
  • Created discussion thread Odd catchlights?
    I have a model that I shot that has very strange catchlights - this thing that bugs me is where the reflections fall, it almost seems like she's crosseyed or something. I noticed this more when ...
