  • If the camera did not capture the colors how am I able to manipulate them. If I hand blend multiple images for a realistic interpretation of the scene one the camera could not capture due to its ...
  • Most Hernandez prints are not even close to the reality of the scene that he originally captured they are heavily processed and as he continued to print it throughout his life he altered the ...
  • my Velvia slides are more saturated then my heavily processed digital images even my Extachrome slides especially VS really pushed the saturation levels. Kodachrome had a the opposite reputation ...
  • Buy a very good polarizer it has a lot more uses then just darkening a sky skip the graduated ND if you have any skill in PS and if you get a ND very few do not have a color cast even the ...
  • The easiest way is to use manual mode
  • Again no i am not you could be using a handheld meter and still get the exposure wrong never mind the lights getting good and I am off to actually take pictures.
  • I am not arguing I am trying to explain a point of technical importance if you want to understand exposure and metering now if I was claiming brand a was better then brad c because of some stupid ...
  • Thats because wee are talking about two different things and I can't seem to get you to understand that. I am stating that finding a middle tone in your scene will not get you the correct exposure ...
  • So how would you expose that scene using a spot meter  if you meter the middle tones without compensation  the very light tones will be blown if you meter the light tones without compensation then ...
  • You are still missing the point which is you have to add compensation to a middle grey reading when shooting very light or dark subjects in bright light. using your snow example if you placed a ...
  • None of them but I know where you going with this if I had shot this in spot I would have metered the white bird and set it at +2  or the mangrove at -11/2 I would not be trying to place my spot ...
  • Simply wrong first not every scene has a 18% grey area in it and second when shooting dark or white subjects even if you have a 18% grey area to meter off of in bright light your subject will be ...
  • Canon had IS lenses all the way back when they only made film cameras before Sony ever made a camera so exactly how are the copying Sony.
  • @ Blue Bomber Thunder Unless you can change the laws of physics doing a 4-5 stop push in post is the same as shooting ISO. 1600-3200 I don’t know about you but I would prefer not to have parts of...

  • If you need to push a landscape image more the 2-3 stops you are much better off using another technique that will deliver better IQ then lifting shadows that far.

  • I have come to the conclusion that your definition of objectivity is agreeing with you.
  • Actually I was commenting on IBIS  for long exposure of 10 seconds or more over using a tripod  but feel free to keep miss representing my points.
  • Ok if that makes you feel better
  • The ones I know just shake thier heads when you mention DPR if they even heard of it. The few who tried posting on here just gave up how do have a conversation with someone who never used the gear ...
  • You referred to my Canon lenses as ancient which implies they are not equal to Sony that’s how we get here. You know you brought us.
