  • That is what used to happen before Sonoma. Now - Parent folder permissions are normal while these copied files/types are "no access". Not going to worry about it at this point,  It's apparently the ...
  • Not going to tinker with the default way a brand new Mac Studio/Sonoma MacOS does things (using it's own SD card slot). Based on feedback - It seems to be the same for everyone. The reason is ...
  • Tested with a M4V file and it's the same thing.  I even copied direct from SD card to external SSD (using Finder) and it's the same thing.  I have no way to get files from SD to external (for ...
  • Except for the fact that - 1.  It's never ever been done this way on any file in the past. 2.  It's specifically *only* happening on .ARW files as far as I can determine. Strange. And, if you're on ...
  • I recently discovered this little oddity. Ever since I got a new Mac Studio (and subsequently upgraded everything to Sonoma) All my newly copied .ARW files have had a new/changed file permissions ...
  • I just had and corrected these kinds of issues for a client shoot - with Lightroom! Transform is great - you can also do manual guides on lines that should be straightened (up to 4 self drawn ...
  • If you're beyond basics - start sharing your results in the forum for feedback/tips. Please explain. Are you struggling understanding the exposure triangle? What is an example of a too complex ...
  • Avoid shooting flash in the dark.  Location and time of day are super important. If you have no choice, then - #1 turn the flash OFF. #2 expose the scene properly. #3 Turn the flash back on and ...
  • Time of day, location and light/weather are things you need to know and hopefully control - is addition to having skill with off camera flash. Shooting at noon in bright sun with white snow ...
  • For an actor shot the shadowy style is fine - if it were more business it might be questionable.  :-)     The one thing to note IMO is his shirt collar which really jumps out as comparatively ...

    Just replying to myself - and so far I'm a bit disappointed.  It's a move I had to make eventually, but I'm not finding it all that much faster than my iMac was while booted from a 40GBPS SSD. Part ...
  • Replied in Confession
    I have to admit now, I'm a hypocrite.  I just got my new Mac Studio and decided it was too much time/work to deal with a clean install right now since I have a zillion projects underway and just ...
  • Interesting, I'll have to look at this closer.  I also started with 1P a very long time ago when they were small and had great support. I'm currently on 1Password 7 and holding out as long as ...
  • Replied in Apple Care
    I had my Ethernet fried by a lighting strike once too!  (Thank goodness we got the hell out of Florida! - Our house was hit directly!) Amazingly - AppleCare fixed it for me at no cost and they ...
  • It's time well invested starting clean.  Hard to believe but I've been using Apple/Macs for 40 years now (starting with the Apple IIe) and clutter happens.  Machines run slower when there's ...

    Even though I have a last generation 2019 27" iMac 5K (great monitor!) 64/2 Fusion drive  - I have been booting externally with a 40Gbps Thunderbolt enclosure TB3/4 and 2TB Samsung 980Pro NVME - ...
  • Replied in Purchased
    Congrats - you bought the same setup as I just did - Mac Studio 64/2 though I got my Studio Display off of Ebay for $1100.  (pre-owned but mint condition.
  • Actually the utility light is hard light and relatively narrow in direction at that proximity. It's also a very weak light that's mostly only effective up close in a dark setting. I suggest you ...
  • Like others have said - ask yourself - what exactly are you trying to do? The photo of thread looks exactly like what one would expect to happen in that setting with that utility light on it. If ...
  • Photoshop.  Using masking and/or blending modes like overlay, soft light etc. Just make sure to start with a tonality (and maybe color) that's close to the final destination - this makes doing a ...
