365/2: 351. Eschewed the traditional stuff this year, went with a Scandinavian red/white theme.
A bit more spare; room to be, room to think. The visual clutter of Xmas gets to me.
I’m still doing some tests to verify, but it does look like a repeatable phenom so far. Using multiples of 160 ISO render greater dynamic range in still images than other ISOs. Found the comment on a video thread; most of us knew to use 160 for best video, but I’d never heard this applied to stills. YMMV.
EOSHD: Fuji X-T1 v3.0 firmware now available/24p video mode/full frame with Speed Booster ULTRA.
Colossal: Spectacular Ice Formations Atop a Windswept Mountain in Slovenia.
We’ve seen similar pix before, but never so dramatic. Enjoy.
GigaOm: Flickr kills sale of Creative Commons prints, issues refunds.
“Even though the Flickr Wall Art service only offered images for which the owner had granted a Creative Commons license for commercial use, some complained that they believed the terms of the license only extended to online use — and not to physical prints as well. Some withdrew their works from Flickr altogether.” It should have been opt-in. Really dumb. Previously discussed.
It is astonishing, that on Flickr ...
I can have absolute no views, but someone’s favorited a photo. Astonishing.
365/2: 350. Just after dark.
DSLR Video Shooter: Top 10 Video Gear Picks of 2014.
365/2: 349. Early today - only because we just don’t often get fog.
And you know, I went out to take this photo, and forgot to get the mail. Back out again I go ...
365/2: 348. You’ll enjoy this one.
Completely unexpected after a sheet-cloud-grey day. There is so much difference in acuity when I use a prime lens ...
Github/xooyoozoo: BPG Image Comparison.
BPG is pretty impressive. Look at the texture of hair as you compare.
365/2: 347. Paperwhite in a teacup.
Think I’ve got a Brit in the house?
The Luminous Landscape: Camera Equipment of The Year 2014.
365/2: 346. The lonely mountain, in the snow (view large).
See the falling/blowing snow?
Xmas gift suggestion: Gordy’s camera straps.
Great stuff, and you’ll be supporting a fellow blogger.
Note: I’ll start doing these occasionally, pointing to those who frequent this blog and have wares for sale.
365/2: 345. Dawn this morning.
I was hoping for some other spectacular photo opp today, but nothing gelled.
365/2: 344. Weather’s moving in this weekend.
Such a headache. And I don’t usually get weather headaches ...
PS Insider: Field Report on the New Canon 100-400mm f/4.5 – f/5.6 USM II.
365/2: 343. That kind ‘o day.
Shoot went well, programming went well ... links tomorrow. I’m exhausted.
365/2: 342. “Found greyscale.”
Light, middle grey, black. Well, sorta.
PhotoShelter Blog: The Most Expensive Photo in the World (or the Best Marketing Stunt).
BBC: Instagram now bigger than Twitter.
No doubt, social media mavens will instruct you to say it with a photo rather than with a tweet now.
Lightroom Killer Tips: Getting Better Results From Lightroom’s Spot Removal Tool.
Didn’t know this one. If it doesn’t choose right the first time, I usually move the sample spot manually. Trying this soon.
Just too busy to do any ‘real’ shooting. Two new clients, I’ve got to get them settled in. So another sunset.
The Luminous Landscape: Sony A7 MKII Hands On.
“No Virginia, there is no 4K video. My guess is that this is being reserved for the anticipated A9 model due some time in early 2015 – at least according to the rumour mill.” That’s going to put a damper on sales ... a ‘better’ A9 model?
