Mucking about with Lightroom CC

Images made over the past few weeks with the Samsung Galaxy S8. Edited on the phone with Lightroom CC; a tad paint by numbers but fun. Just a pity I can’t get Windows 10 to recognise the desktop version*. Much looking and cache clearing etc but no luck yet. As I am wont to comment whenever surveyed by Adobe ‘great tools just a pity having to navigate the gatekeepers and the ‘troubleshooting’ threads to solve a problem’. Others share the issue but no solution to be found as yet. I shall just wait. The Creative Cloud Photography plan apps have all been updated in recent days.

*update: late May Adobe support sorted this issue, thanks heaps!!

Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition

Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic ExhibitionStopping in Taupo for lunch today I notice the rather large ‘rustic’ and somewhat surreal sign for the Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to visit the exhibition which I understand was showing close by at the Taupo Great Lakes Centre.

The Nikon F90X

Joanna Rushton
Jo has had a rough time of late – and today wasn’t the greatest. Jo wants to pursue photography (with the rationed school time she has at her disposal) through her art. The 90X was retired in 2005 after a full life as a professional camera from new in 1999 or thereabouts. After some too-ing and fro-ing on Facebook and a quick look at what’s on offer on TradeMe – we decide this the best option and a good match.

This sounds promising

Open-source camera could revolutionize digital photography

Stanford scientists’ open-source camera could change photography by giving programmers anywhere the power to change camera features and create new possibilities.

G11 v G10

I’m sticking with the G10. If you’re looking for HD video in a compact you need to look elsewhere. Along with the Olympus OM1, the μ[mju:]-II (Stylus), perhaps the Nikon F70/F90 series and most certainly the Sony F828 a piece of equipment – a camera – to enjoy. Here are some thoughts in the G10/G11 debate. Bill Lockheart has his say and of course we have dpreview.

Canon G10

The Canon G10 has it’s detractors yet is a joy to use. This cropped portion of the image below – actually the image taken directly afterwards from the same postion/POV – gives an idea of its potential. A photographer’s camera they say. On the NZ market somewhere in the $900.00 range. BTW, I love the look and feel of it.

Colours

To those observant of such stuff – my colour rendering can be flaky at the best of times. Over the past month I have moved from JPEG to RAW file capture when making images. I’ve had skirmishes with RAW files – and used them extensively in the past couple of years – but. I am a late bloomer. Letting go and just getting on with it is the way to go. No JPEG backup. Of course the resulting feeling is – why didn’t I do this back in March when I first got the K20D. The new regime will result in more consistency. It’s certainly lots of fun.

I have spent time over the past few days establishing links between both sites. Searching my archive should become as rich as searching here over time. Just shaping the archive into something that is simple and intuitive is a bit of a challenge. Hopefully the basics are there.  WordPress 2.7 made it’s appearencce at 2PM this afternoon. The new dashboard is all is very flash and functional. As is usual with WordPress upgrades, particularly when familiar with all the bells and whistles, the improvements are a delight.

Film and imaging

Disposable camera filmstrip
Duke Street Cambridge: Discarded throwaway camera filmstrip 18/11/2008

I began my transition to digital imaging when introduced to Pedro Meyer‘s work. A decade later I began the change from film. I bought my first digital camera in 2001. Slow and steady. I stopped using film altogether in the first half of 2005. Photography for me has always been about making images – pressing the shutter. I feel no differently about pressing the shutter in 2008 than I did in 1964. For me digital imaging is no different from film based photography. The skill set is the same. The craft – that’s a different matter.
