KoolKool: "STOP TAKING BORING, SOULESS PHOTO"

no matter how super-ultra sharp your photo is, but if your photo have no meaningful content, people will not give a care (maybe a look but forget later), your photo is just like other people photo

anyone can take photo nowadays, camera and smartphone is popular and affordable to everyone

so what make you think your photos are special? you must prove, no...please don't show your superior shaprness, won't help!

Yes! I’ve got all three😊

I tried a photo but preferred the original, the photo was brightened too much for my taste. Probably works better on poor quality image.

Can't wait to see some photos!

Well I think its great progress, I've got a lot of photos from my phone (5s) that I wouldn't otherwise have had. I will spend $2,500 for a single good lens, but can pick up a previous model phone for a few hundred dollars. I'm happy (and a photographer)

Nice video, beautiful wispy low calorie girl, I've watched the video many times, something nice and dreamy about it. I've got enough cameras though.

StanyBuyle: Downloaded this software and tried to open a D850 NEF.
Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slow...

Uninstalled after that.

Strange may be it's just a perception thing, I haven't noticed its slow and my Pentax can produce 160mb files. As a bonus, Affinity also processes my pixel shift files well.

CanaryMango: I've been really impressed with Affinity since I bought it on the Windows release. It's my main photo editing software now - works well with Nik.

Cancelled my Adobe sub.

Me too, but I had to pay off rest of the years subscription because of the auto re subscription clause. No wonder Adobe has made record profits! (But no more from me)

Upon finishing this article and heading to the comments, I had the depressing realization that I would probably have to wade through a whole lot of put downs and criticisms. This guy has achieved a lot, I take my hat off to him, his lovely work and where its got him. Not sure if I lack the guts or ability, but this guy, in my opinion, has both! Thank you Clay and good on you!

Kharan: DPR - good job on hiring Carey! It's really refreshing to see samples by someone who obviously loves photography and is skilled at it.
But it's unfair that not all cameras get the same treatment re: samples.

I had the same thought, lovely photos and that smile made me feel so happy!

I've got a head ache, think I need to go out and take some pictures. OMG! 1'' sensor, M4/3, APCS, Full frame, equivalence? Maybe I'll just take my phone!

Sezano: These kids are a cute group but too young to matter.

Hi Dave, thanks for the links. I'd love to know how these young people achieve so much. I mean how they progressed their work. Much respect.

So much negativity in these comments! I really enjoyed the video, photography is not exactly an easy way to make a living, good luck to them and thanks for the fun and some great end results. I don't have the courage to do it myself.

I loved the nude in the background!

I recently took a snap shot of my car with an iPhone 5s, Olympus 4/3 and Pentax full frame on approx equivalent focal length. On a computer screen my wife could not pick the difference in any of them. Most phone users don't even see their photos that big. That's got a lot to do with why their so popular. (The iPhone's colour was a bit off)

I have finally gone full frame and get great shots, but I watch my wife and kids taking photos with their smart phones and how they post them for show so quickly and get gratifying feedback. The fact is these are are lovely photos for posting on the internet and that is by far the biggest direction photography is heading in. My 160+Mb photos have very limited use these days compared to a smart phone. Horses for Courses!

Lovely images, I can feel the chilled out beautiful summers day in them (it's winter over here)

On article Ask the staff: wedding season weirdness (277 comments in total)

back in the 60s I shot a wedding for friends only to discover I hadn't loaded my terrible Russian Kiev 88 full frame camera carefully enough and lost the whole family shot series as the film failed to wind on. Scarred for life after that! The Kiev 88 was a very bad copy of a Hasselblad, I finally made the fatal mistake of trying to change shutter speed before winding on the film-that caused instant lockup and need for factory repair - I threw it away.

Anyone know the make of the car shown in photo number 7? I just can't quite make out name on the bonnet badge.

Link | Posted on Jun 30, 2017 at 03:09 UTC as 8th comment | 2 replies

Three years ago I traveled from Australia to the UK and France. I left all my camera gear behind except for a Sony RX100. I didn't miss a shot, got some great close up wide angle shots using the in camera panorama function and when it wasn't in use it disappeared into a tiny pouch on my belt. (I got sore legs the other day carrying a full frame setup with lenses and tripod for a days hike)

By the way, anyone know what is the make of that car?

On article 2017 iPhone Photography Award Winners Announced (177 comments in total)

Despite all the bashing, the photos are all seem good to me. How fortunate we are to be able to get photos of this quality from a mobile phone. I've always got my phone but rarely a dedicated camera.
