Photography Technique / Art of Photography
« on: January 26, 2015, 02:38:18 PM »
This has nothing to do with Canon, but it's one of the more well done things I've seen about a photographer pushing the bounds of Art.

I guess this opens up some opportunities for free-lance shooters...

Fujirumors is saying today is announcement day for the Samyang 135mm f/2.0. Naturally, their interest is X-mount, but it appears it will be available for Canon & Nikon.

Interesting tech piece on new polarizing material that transmits substantially more light...


Pricewatch Deals / Refurb S100 today $109
« on: November 15, 2014, 03:31:39 PM »
Today last day for refurb Canon Powershot S100 for $109.

It's not today's tech, but it's a hell of a good pocketable camera for not much more than petty cash.


Portrait / Jack-O-Lantern Portrait
« on: October 22, 2014, 11:17:24 PM »
It being the Halloween season...

I just realized I don't have a decent jack-o-lantern picture. The best I have is this hastily done thing with a little P&S from five years or so ago. Anyone have any good pictures? I'm going out looking the next week or so, see what I can scare up, so to speak.

Third Party Manufacturers / Rationale Video -- Switch to Sony from Nikon
« on: October 20, 2014, 07:13:21 PM »
Interesting reasons why one pro photographer moved to Sony mirrorless from Nikon...


Makes me wonder how far this will go before Nikon and Canon get some convincing product into the marketplace.

Photography Technique / A Twentieth Century Master Passes

From my area, Philadelphia photographer Ray Metzker dies.


Given how worked up folks get on this forum, take notice they never said what kind of camera this guy used.

On your deathbed, Canon, Nikon, they really don't matter. Only your pictures matter.

Pricewatch Deals / Photoshop World Specials @ B&H
« on: September 03, 2014, 05:33:53 PM »
Got an email from B&H today with a bunch of price specials on a wide variety of things. Some good deals. I did some shopping.

I don't see any link on the B&H site. Guess if you're a customer you got the email.

Post Processing / B&W Process
« on: August 06, 2014, 05:42:15 PM »
Okay, I'll start with a question.

What provides the best results for B&W processing?

Doing it in LR is straightforward and gives adequate results.

I've never been able to get what I wanted out of Silver Efex Pro, and I don't know why. It seems by far the most sophisticated.

Lastly, I've recently tried Color Efex Pro B&W conversion. So, far this is giving me the best results. It seems more straightforward than Silver Efex and the effects are more obvious.

So, that's my experience so far.
