  • I applaud all you folks that have the urge to go back into the darkroom.  I've been photographing for over 50 years, and I enjoyed my time in the dark. By 2000, I was having digital images put on ...
  • It's a panorama stitched in Lightroom.  Perspective doesn't work, spherical butchers the aspect ratio, and cylindrical sometimes makes horizons curve. When I need it done right I usually use ...
  • I may have found something, so I'm going to play a bit and see.
  • The only camera I've ever regretted was the Nikon d800. I'm sure there are people still using them, and it should have been a very good camera, but for what I was/am doing, it wasn't. Frame rate ...
  • I'm old and crotchety and cynical.  But this level of upheaval, accompanied by DIRE warnings that the BEST case would be a "large pis*ing contest" at the membership meeting causing the mass exodus ...
  • Major Jack, I love the way you think.  It makes sense. Over the past couple weeks the hysteria over a trivial proposal to make a minor addition to a salon rule has exploded into the most tawdry, ...
  • Don't care about banning or allowing. Don't care about ANYTHING that was in Lightroom or Photoshop before 2021 or whenever AI-driven tools started showing up. All I'm looking for is a list of ...
  • Interesting as all the ideas about multiple salons sounds, and regardless of whether I believe the club should create a parallel, independently scored salon for computer-generated output, I don't ...
  • Yes, the users can do anything as long as anything added comes from THEIR images. It's a 20-year-old rule that worked fine with the technology of the time. There has been some discussion of ...
  • Your photo club sounds much more rational than the two I belong to, and the THREE levels of umbrella organizations above them - ALL of which are creating rules to prevent all manner of "abuses". Th ...
  • I NOW remember why I have, for years, studiously remained FAR AWAY from the governing body of photo clubs, and the political bovine feces that seems to accompany everything they do. I WOULDN'T ...
  • Folks, thanks a ton for the replies. You’ve made this whole thing make a lot more sense. Currently, the rules for the photo club say the original image must be made by the member on photographic ...
  • Thanks for the reply... Yes, the "wording and consensus" is challenging. I think the modified wording in the proposal does what I think is needed, but the "consensus" has not been forthcoming. In ...
  • For me it would be education.  Once the camera is properly set up, and the techniques learned so you can reliably get good captures, mine switches to the post processing. AI has caused a big ...
  • I belong to a photo club. The photo club has monthly salon competitions. Up ‘til the new release of Lightroom and Photoshop, the rules were very simple – essentially “do your own work” and “don’t ...
  • Great.  Hopefully better than "generic"............. I recalibrated the monitor from 100 cd/m2 down to 80 cd/m2.  And I've been printing images.  And I'm finding that even at this lower brightness, ...
  • Re-Calibration was "interesting"... Spyder X software won't recognize the sensor.  Went out and searched and found out you have to get all the DisplayCal drivers off the system.  I tried DisplayCal ...
  • I'm not sure I've ever thought about whether a camera was attractive or not.  To me, they're tools, like hammers.  I never cared if the hammer had a red handle or a green handle as long as it ...
  • Thanks for the replies. That's and interesting idea, and I may give it a try... Just to see what it would do I tried the Windows Calibration thing...  I can't see how that thing would help ...
  • I'm looking for a basic calibration tool that will get me 85 or 90% accurate. I don't need or want one of the whiz-bang, far more expensive ones... I'm sure they're wonderful and calibrate to the ...
