  • See?  You have an interesting answer to that question (although I am not personally interested in your inseam).  It turns out that "what camera did you use?" was a good conversation starter.  And ...
  • I live in a city that built a theme park for photographers. This is a self-portrait: Cloudgate from the North Side, Go Cubs! But my son's in college downstate so I often visit a strange foreign ...
  • Replied in Reggio Emilia
    On behalf of everyone, I would like to say thank you to Reggio Emilia for all that wonderful cheese :-)
  • Choosing PP software nowadays is like choosing a new camera. There are (or seem to be) a million choices and everybody has strong opinions... but ultimately, it comes down to whatever you like ...
  • I'm on a similar upgrade path.  First a Panny G1 and now a GM1 (for which I waited a year until the price came down because my daddy did not raise me to pay MSRP for electronics). Of all the ways I ...
  • I usually write a "letter of agreement" which is a simple contract with a less-scary name.  It clearly specifies what the client wants, what I want, and what we will do.  It goes like this: 1) ...
  • Good point. That's when you say "my instructors at the University of Whatever taught us that..." Or "when I worked with Company Name we had a policy that..." You reference whatever sources of ...
  • I am not a pro cinematographer nor photographer. I do, however, earn my living as a marketing communications consultant. Often clients ask me to do things that I consider, in my professional ...
  • Give it a try.  I like the interface and have gotten excellent results with it, although I haven't even begun to scratch the surface.  Many, many, many tools to play with.  It's like graduating ...
  • Another example: G'MIC - Details - Simple Local Contrast. For my taste this is over the top but it shows what you can do with one filter. You can try it here online: https://gmicol.greyc.fr/
  • On Windows, I have File menus in Analog Efex, Silver Efex and Color Efex as well as HDR.  No trouble using these programs standalone to open files, make edits, and "save as."  The only trick is to ...
  • Like a lot of abandoned Picasa users, I have been complaining that Google is redesigning its entire photo platform for the least demanding users.  Users who don't organize photos and only want to ...
  • Hey people, listen up! Fifteen minutes after I posted my edit above, I got an email from my husband. He says he has a two-for-one coupon for BK Whoppers and wants to know if I'd like him to bring ...
  • Aw man, between this and those fish tacos somebody posted, I'm so hungry I'm starting to hallucinate.  :-D Just some quick messing about with Smart Photo Editor because dude, look at the colors
  • AdobeRGB is great.  All you need to do is convince everybody who looks at your photos to buy new monitors, recalibrate their equipment, activate in-browser color management and change their workflows.
  • This is a shot of blue sky with small subjects.  There's only so much to be done in PP if you're happy with the exposure and white balance and you're not looking to add any "special effects." A ...
  • I installed it in March (not sure if it's the same version they're promoting this month) and tried to run it standalone, but I could not get the software to run properly in Windows 7. Hard to edit ...
  • Gee, everyone is talking about depth of field. I thought the important thing about a portrait lens is to avoid distorting the subject's facial features. You want a flattering shot and not some ...
  • Read this: http://blog.patdavid.net/2013/05/hdr-photography-with-foss-tools.html
  • But... but... if you edit those out, how will CSI identify the killer?  Enhance! :-D
