Re: first colorizing attempt at B&W

Details please? What tutorial, software, how complicated was it.....

I may never try it, but who knows.

I actually once worked with an older lady who had done that for a living in the '50s and '60s for a portrait studio. Lots of time spent doing it all by hand on the b/w portraits.

De-Duping my photos with Anti-Twin

Having some down time lately because of the weather, I've taken to de-duping my photos, and saving many gigs of space in so doing. Part of this is the fact that I always used to have an non-busy late morning at my old job, and often worked on my photos there, as well as my home PC, so combining the ...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

Back in the film days, it was 3 or 4 cameras, since you had different film for different situations. Now, ISO is not fixed until you change a spool, and no one knows what slides are anymore - they think they're something to do with powerpoint! However, it's always quicker to change from one camera t...

Re: Gateway Arch - Saint Louis

One of the tram boarding stations which are about 40 feet beneath the Arch legs. Cell phone camera 0523180752.jpg I don't think they've changed the loading stations since they built the place! I looks just the same as it did the first time I went there, in the 1960's! A little piece of me is in the...

Sunset over the sea? I thought those were missile launches while overflying N. Korea! ;)

Re: Spring has Srpung

JB, now you're going to force me to shoot some of shots of what's coming up at home!

My wife actually has some great shots of the apricot blooms from our tree shot on her i-phone.

We get to start anew on all that as we are soon moving.

Not too secret. I remember a Post-Dispatch article about that house many years ago!

It's interesting to see behind the scenes.

Novel use of video

Here's a very novel use of video - to capture sound!

Now you have to keep your candy wrappers away from the windows to ensure your privacy.

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Wow... very observant! Yes, we were at the Valhalla cemetery on St. Charles Rock Road. We were there for 3 nights. We saw a lot of old and interesting family plots there. Which section is your family in? I may have to go back and make a social visit. Sig Sig, Most of my family is to the left of the...

Re: Rudie

Cute! We had something similar. My Dad raised goats, and one winter a mother rejected one of her young. Mom and Dad bottle fed her, and put her in with the newborn pups to keep warm. That goat thought she was a dog! She would run with them, and when they started barking she would bay along with thei...

Re: After the Storm

A little late to the table, but Irma was the reason my kid's vacation of a lifetime to Disney World was cut short a few days.

We left the day before it hit.

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Here are some photos from the night scene in the cemetery (Ashlock visiting his wife’s grave). This scene was shot last winter over two weekends. The temperature was below freezing, and the one actor in this scene had to spend every night in the cold without a coat. Poor guy. There were only four o...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I've been using Raw Therapee for several years, and am also looking at all the other freeware out there. Since I usually don't do any heavy editing, it's not a problem for me. I like to capture images that I believe are true to what I see, but that doesn't mean I won't tweak color or white balance i...

Re: Is The Digital Tele-Converter Feature Worthwhile?

Sorry I took so long to reply, Henry. I've been off the board for a month. First the buy-out of our company, then the vacation.... My longest lens in A mount is a 300, and I have a t-mount 400 or 500, don't recall which. With the 1.5 crop of APS-C, longest I can go is either 600 or 750 efl. I rarely...

Re: Macros from Meadowlark

It's nice to have a lens that motivates one to get off the couch and shoot. You have a gem in this one. JB, I don't know about you but for me the lens that usually gets me motivated to shoot is the 'new' one, even if it's one I dug out of the closet where I stored it after tiring of it some time be...
