That’s a great LR/PS alternative right there, @loganlamar. If I wasn’t into the business of photography (ie. making more than $10/mo from my photography) then that’s probably the route I would take too.
I would recommend looking into a different printer.
The God who invented the snowflake is INCREDIBLE!
Looking at that comparison photo @buddingphotographer posted on November 21, 2020 at 6:42 pm, reminds me all the world of a brochure I saw one time that had all the greens washed out (I don’t think there was much red color in the brochure). Since I was in the bindery, I asked the pressman, and he said something like “yeah, that’s what happens when…[Read more]
Hi @kazuki-maeda, I’ve not been able to find a free program that I’ve actually liked, but there are definitely some cost effective programs that I’ve found and compared. You might want to check out this video on Choosing a Photo Editing Program.
There are also a couple other threads on this topic if you’d like to take a look at…[Read more]
For those who missed the webinar….here’s the replay! <https://www.lenspiration.com/video/webinar59/
And congratulations to @bennett-family for being the winner! Stiff composition there, with over 80 photos submitted there. 🙂 It was great to have Melissa herself on to reveal to us why she chose the picture she did.
And PS, in correction to…[Read more]
As you can see in the replay (http://www.lenspiration.com/webinar59), the winner has not yet been chosen! We shall continue to wait and see what happens. 🙂
PS. In correction to what I said in the webinar, the next photo assignment will actually be launched on December 4.
Nice sunflare, @martha-lapp!
Your determination is to be commended, @vincent-charmaingmail-com!
A decent amount of color left, for sure @bennett-family!
10:30pm is before 12 midnight @ernestf-lloyd!
Looking forward to diving deep into the critique of everyone’s photos tomorrow night!! https://www.lenspiration.com/webinar/photo-critique-59/
@blessingscaptured, I forgot to reply to your question about horizon’s looking straight…
The horizon is always straight (unless it isn’t) so make the horizon look straight, and the rest of the photo should be correct as well.
But seriously, both “trees” and “the perceived horizon” (unless you’re in Kansas LOL) can look catawampus so…[Read more]
Sorry I haven’t bee keeping up with this thread very well. I do agree, from a design standpoint, that a black background seems to not fit so well. A cutout without any background color is probably what I would do, but it seems like your light blue background could look good as well.
If I used a levels layer and set the blacks at 10 and the whites…
Before getting into the nitty gritty details, let me clarify: the Collage Page looked good when it was printed as a sample, and now the Collage Page looks bad in the real printing, and you did absolutely nothing to the picture in between?
If so, this is obviously on the printers side.
Did the printer use the exact same machine for both the…[Read more]
Yes, this happens to me too. 🙁
First, try different white balances. If you shoot RAW, then you can do this in an editing program and you’ll get the same results as on location (changing the color later with JPGs doesn’t work as well).
Second, it could be the screen you’re using.
But most likely, it has to do with the limitations of the colors…[Read more]
Thank you @buddingphotographer!
I don’t think I’ve ever recommended bridge cameras before, but what you’ve said makes sense. Perhaps bridge camera technology has advanced more than I was aware of. I guess the thing that bothers me most is the shutter lag. Also, the fact that they’re usually so small, and use a screen instead of a true…[Read more]
I just realized, @earnestf-lloyd, that I attached the incorrect file in my reply on November 4! The attached is the correct file with my changes.
the lens’ connections needed cleaned and that was why I was having so much trouble with focusing with that lens.
This is good to know. Thanks for sharing.
So excited to see everyone’s submissions despite it being not an ideal situation for most of us!!
Interestingly, the majority of shooting situations we’ll find ourselves in are not going to be ideal. We will always find things we wish were better/different. So this is a good exercise in creativity….and it makes us extra grateful when God steps…[Read more]
Getting back from the FEW Conference last weekend . . . delighted to see so many submissions had come in!
Hilarious, @bennett-family! Literally, “choked” 😀
Not exactly the best time of year for weeds here in the northern hemesphere, but glad you were finding things Esther and @martha-lapp.
@blessingscaptured, that’s tough. I’ve used both local printers and high-end printers and have not experienced this problem so it seems to me to be an issue with the file being sent. He said specifically “5 bands”. I assume this is an unusual situation for him to see banding like that? A couple things to note: if you…[Read more]
Welcome @tashavk! In addition to the vibrant color of the trees, I find it interesting that the horizontal patterns in the field and in the sky virtually match each other. I think this relationship creates a calm, visual tug-of-war between the top and bottom of the image which helps keep the eye from wondering off those edges of the frame. With…[Read more]
Haha, that’s great. 😀 That last one has a great emphasis on the surrounding growth, and the growth looking more obviously like weeds. Overall, great lighting and great framing! Never seen such artistic pictures of a weed-filled garden. 🙂
