Software & Accessories / Rastering of image in CC PS
« on: July 26, 2014, 04:40:13 PM »
I'm probably using the wrong term, rasterizing, but I'm trying to understand what is happening to my image

Using CC Photoshop, I select the sky, apply field blur, click ok, and bring it back into PS. The sky that has been blurred is wavy, like gradients.

Any tips would be appreciated


Lighting / Re: large softboxes for speedlights - what are you using
« on: July 26, 2014, 04:30:48 PM »
Thanks everybody for the feedback.

I will probably get the 50" Westcott Apollo after I find a buyer for my 2008 13inch MacBook

Is everyone saying that it is working using the 'ipod touch' as the OP?

I wish I could talk to the engineering team who developed it to give some very direct feedback about UX

Lighting / large softboxes for speedlights - what are you using
« on: July 17, 2014, 12:15:31 PM »
Is anyone using large softboxes, over 40 inches, for their speedlights - which brand/model are you using. I'm looking for one above 40 inches, and have a limited budget

Software & Accessories / Re: DPP 4. Is anyone else having this issue?
« on: July 06, 2014, 10:08:58 PM »
Why does anyone use DPP of any version? What features does it have that PS6/LR5 doesn't?

I wish Canon would put its dev efforts behind a better iOS EOS app and communication between it and 6D and others

OP, show us your web site and examples of your work.

Have you created a business plan?

How many portrait photographers are in your geographic area?
How many wedding photographers?
How many corporate/commerce photographers?
How many fashion photographers?
How many sports photographers?

Does your web site show your studio?

Do you blog about your specialty?

What is the annual household income of your geographic area? NYC prices would not be the same prices as Hoxie, KS

Are you volunteering at your County Veterans Centers by doing Vets portraits for LinkedIn?

I plan to go back to the baseball park soon, and, will bring a monopod.When I snapped the pics above, I was curled up in my seat, knee raised to use as a foundation, one hand under the lens, holding my breath.

Somewhere on the forum I read that the newest version will go to 2000mm, a good crazy.

I wish the extended zoom feature was available in raw not just jpg.

I used Define to clean up the noise.

The image on the left show the camera wide, while the image on the right shows it zoomed all the way out. Hand held. The yellow/green mark on the left shows where the player is standing.
