  1. One more from my winter scanning project
  2. Thanks Chuck😀! Right now I'm using a CanoScan 9000F MkII for my new scans but for this image I used a professional scanning firm. It cost me about $80 for it. As I consider it my "masterpiece" and it hangs on my office wall, I think it was well worth it. Plus it was shot with a Hasselblad, so that made a difference too. Rick (edit) I just checked out your photo😊. Coincidentally, I named my photograph "The Last Rodeo" Great minds think alike. right?
  3. This one is from my winter project (scanning film from the 80's and 90's) Writing on Stone Rodeo, Alberta Canada circa 1980.
  4. First one of the year. Crowsnest River Alberta. Presentation or newsletter use
  5. This will be my last post on this subject. (yay!) You do not edit in RAW (LR or ACR). RAW does not contain an image. It's a mistake to think that you are ever actually editing the RAW file. A raw file does not contain an image, it contains camera sensor data that can be processed (rendered) to create an image. The raw image contains data in a mosiac format, whereas the TIFF uses a separate channel for each of the RGB components, which is why a 16 bit tiff is three times larger than a RAW file However, it needs to be demosiaced by a raw converter just as the three separate channels of a TIFF need to be combined in Photoshop. So, when you view a raw file in LR, what's really happening is that LR is using it's default rendering settings to process the raw data to create the image you see on screen. When you "edit" a raw file in LR, the raw file is not changed, but the processing instructions are changed (and thus the on-screen image changes).Bottom line, then, is that when you do edits in LR, you are not working on the raw file but on the current, on-screen rendering of it.
  6. I was going through some older file folders looking for lost nuggets when I found this one.
  7. Gone fishing. Inle Lake, Myanmar
  8. Lowepro makes gloves which have slits in the thumb and forefinger in where you can slide those fingertips out when required. Very useful
  9. Thanks, that's very kind of you to say that. 🙂 Besides the strong colors in the photo, I was always intrigued by the expression on her face
  10. No points were missed. The RAW files may very well contain more information than a 16 bit ProPhoto TIFF file, however the difference may not be significant. I put this info out for anyone having issues with shadows and highlights. For me LR and ACR (same thing almost) weren't as good as this method. Just my opinion
  11. Thanks everyone for the feedback. I didn't realize that he was using a jpeg for an example. One way around that is to use PS as an external editor in LR. Right click on the thumbnail (edit in) and chose PS. If you haven't got an external editor set up, go to Choose Lightroom > Preferences (Mac) or Edit > Preferences (Windows) and then click on the External Editing tab. You can then do all your edits in PS, including Nik in the 16 bit tiff file. When finished, click save (not save as). That will take you back to LR with 2 files, original and edited. Not all shadows need "opening up" but some do. Anyway, I like it😐
  12. There has been a lot of talk regarding highlight and shadows lately. Is there anybody here using that function in PS? Go to Image>Adjustments>Shadows & Highlights>Advanced. I find it a lot more useful than LR or curves/levels. Of course there is a YouTube tutorial from my fast talking teacher😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avr99WgsOKY
