  • I used to get a three month license for InDesign every time I got a book contract.
  • Those threads are mainly for adding filters to the lens, such as a polarizing filter or a neutral density filter.
  • You can correct for a low contrast lens in post, but not necessarily by using the contrast slider. I'd rather use curves, which offers a more precise adjustment. "Contrast" does indeed increase ...
  • They are available for only about $50.
  • Those are all mainly raw processors, which are designed to convert raws to standard image file formats like TIFF and JPEG, and which typically just do global edits: the same edits are applied to ...

  • Hehe, that's what I plan on doing. Maybe not "thousand". Not completely sure. I'm thinking of splitting this into two classes, one for digital and one for film. Yes, it is particularly good for ...
  • That's a nice example!
  • I've read that men typically dream in black and white, women in color, and that males have more difficulty with naming and distinguishing a variety of colors compared to females. True or not? ...
