  • Replied in Tone Mapping?
  • Yes, 3 - 5 miles of 35mm B&W Neg a day 5 days a week x 15+ years... I co-founded and operated my own cine laboratory in the heart of the motion picture and television industry, Burbank CA in 1988. ...
  • Hi Marty Thank you for your insight and you level headed response. Your opinion is valued and so are your very kind words. Re. my experience, yeah, I'm the guy. I've been processing my own film ...
  • But film developing IS darkroom work? In addition to printing, spotting prints, mounting, etc. All qualifications requested by the employer - all of which I was able to confirm competence in. I've ...
  • In looking for part time work, I have seen all too often employers stating that they require a facial photograph of you to accompany your employment application. These are NOT modeling jobs. They ...
  • What does the manual say to do?
  • Thank you. I actually had a chuckle when I saw your responses as I don't disagree, but I can see it from the other direction also. It's just as easy to "trick" self-professed artistes into giving a ...
  • Created discussion thread Less Saturation = More Serious?
    Do you subscribe to this axiom? Where is the line between serious and dismissible? I've noticed that a LOT of forum members diss (dismiss) vibrantly colored photos. Are you one of them? For myself, ...
  • I started shooting with my first SLR when I was 14 years old in the 70s - film was the only game in town. I have been shooting digital for the last fifteen years but still have a romantic place in ...
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harris_shutter I used a software sim to mimic this in-camera effect. If you are near the LA area I'd be glad to show you how to get started with ML.
  • No and Yes - w/ ML you use a dedicated HDR bracketing sub-menu and do not use the camera's in-built bracketing function. The HDR operation w/ML is not limited on the longest shutter speed. What ...
  • I too am a practitioner of long-exposure HDR. What you want is free, beneficial and harmless and it is called Magic Lantern . It works with Canon dslrs so if your gear list is current, you should ...
  • Replied in Hyperlapsing
    What type of Hyperlapsing do you specialize in? That will help guide the answers. Thanks.
  • Please tell us - how many other electro-mechanical devices have been rendered completely in-operable due to a simple ride on your car seat? This will provide a reference point for us to begin our ...
  • I totally get it. You want to give a vintage camera as a a photography themed gift. Look on Ebay for a rangefinder type 35mm camera. Possibly Yashica or Minolta. You can find all kinds of cameras ...
  • Created discussion thread What's in YOUR PP toolbox?
    Hi all, in hopes of finding something really cool that I might not even know about yet, I want to share what is in my Post Production tool box, and my main use/s for each. While I may have other ...
  • This is NOT a retouching trick. This was captured in camera with a long shutter speed and a flash that fires on trailing shutter curtain. The subject had a rainbow image on their cell phone screen ...
  • Hold shutter button down with this.
  • I would like to present these images as a gift to the couple. What print material do you think would make them gift-worthy? Aluminum, wood, acrylic, paper, canvas, parchment? Thank you for any help ...
  • Created discussion thread VW Beetle of digital slrs?
    When I was a drivers permit holding teenager back in 1979 I had the occasion to spend part of my time learning to drive sitting behind the wheel of a '67 Beetle. EVERYBODY that I knew or came ...
