Re: Can we discuss a commercial job?

Duck, First let me thank you for such a superb response. You certainly went above and beyond on this one doing the homework before formulating the reply. I do believe you identified the store and you assessment seems spot on. I too figure that there are catalog images from their supplier and they ar...

Can we discuss a commercial job?

There is an independent jeweler here with three stores in small rural towns less than 20 miles apart. These are the shops where the snobbish locals go for wedding sets, pricey gifts and repairs. There's not a definite vibe like a posh boutique jewelry store but for sure not the credit jewelers. They...

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

Where my post falls down is unless we are talking about the same camera and methodology in software used we can argue all day and each is correct but opposite in what we found. Am I correct it that last statement? No bloody idea. Have fun: Hey Ed, One of the things I enjoy about discussions about p...

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

Earlier there was mention that HDR in film required sandwiching negatives. Orton's effect was similar. Using one over exposed negative and one under exposed being part of the process. I threw it out there from nostalgia for film manipulation talk. I was wondering, and this makes sense once you poin...

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

Interesting set of responses. I am yet to use my latest camera Canon 1dxMkii for hdr, but I know the old one Canon 1ds Mkii has an exposure range of 10 1/3 stops extrapolated. I know that if inside a building and bright sun through any window, I cannot get detail from outside with detail inside. I ...

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

The Orton Effect. That's a totally different effect and process. How does that relate to HDR? I'm not following. Earlier there was mention that HDR in film required sandwiching negatives. Orton's effect was similar. Using one over exposed negative and one under exposed being part of the process. I ...

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

I know very little about HDR and have only practiced a handful of times. I think the exposure sequence -1 0 +1 is an overly simplified approach. How does one arrive at the exposure value of 0 anyway? Does the scene have elements that fall outside the dynamic range of the -1 and +1 for the particular...

Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

Free film in digital is a great concept for learning. While it's foolhardy to waste frames on a portrait session and over-shooting for paid jobs costs money when learning the object, the more the better. Right too is the suggestion that subject matter and composition aren't paramount for exposure ex...

Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

I don't keep notes on what I am doing so I can't reflect and learn from what I have done once I see the results on the screen. I blame all this on the seduction of digital--scatter shoot, hope, then choose. No new tricks for this old dog, I am afraid. Maybe today, though. Maybe... MATT The drug sto...
