    Adobe and privacy

    I'm not a fan of Tony Northrup, but he's spot on here. Adobe's policies are becoming increasingly hard to digest, and after 30+ years as a user of a multitude of their products, I'm preparing my departure. It's becoming increasingly clear that they have access not only to photos stored in the...

    slow day here...

    It may be the end of humanity as we know it. It contributes to lower birth rates, it encourages people not to think, not to reason, and it deprives young people of learning to communicate with other humans. The people that they communicate with on their phones may or may not be humans. In 30...

    Nikon Z6 III teasers and first impressions.

    Looks like an impressive camera. Here's some more Nikon propaganda:

    Hi from Tasmania

    Welcome to this excellent forum. As for your $2,000 budget, it's more than sufficient, although you won't get a Phase-One for that. The gear I use for most of my work (Panasonic G9 pluss a few good lenses) costs well below $2,000 if bought second hand, which is what I mostly do. Actually, if...

    Seems to be a good camera with few limitations:

    I haven't been here for a while, since I've been busy with video production, a choice made by one of my clients. They simply need a lot of video, some of it rather challenging. What better news can one get then, than Panasonic launching the long awaited, apparently amazing GH7 video capture...

    Olympics 2024--what's your game?

    If I'm going to watch any of the Olympics, I would prefer to watch smaller sports like archery, kayak etc. Watching ultra-rich celebrities fighting it out on the football field or elsewhere is becoming increasingly boring. Unfortunately, finding TV channels that show those smaller sports is not...

    Medium Format and Coffee

    It sure is pricey, and even more so here at $640, but if it can produce a shot per day for 10 years, it's just $0.18 per shot. I can think of several other, less enjoyable, things that cost more than $0.18 per day. I have come to a point in my life where I value small things at home, things...

    Can you explain what software is used to get this image

    It's already nearly impossible to define what is AI and what is not. Many of the tools in PS are AI based, and many AI creations are based on actual photos. While this particular image may be based on a photo, it looks more like AI than many images presented as AI. The best way to become able...

    Very cool! Does the thing have a name?

    Photographing in visually complex places.

    I like your "overcooking". In a busy photo, colours and details are important elements of the photo. They ARE the photo. Increasing saturation and contrast can help guiding the viewer around the photo. When I shot industrial interiors on film, I mostly used Ektar 100, a colourful, contrasty...

    Why did you buy your latest camera?

    My latest medium format camera was the Fuji GX680 III due to its movements. It was mainly used for industrial interior. I sold it because the 50 mm lens wasn't wide enough for what I currently do, which is mostly yacht photography. Also, film bracketed (a must for yacht interiors) with 10 shots...

    Photographing in visually complex places.

    I hardly ever take a photo without intent. Sometimes, I'm the only person who can possibly understand the intent, since I was there and the intent was created inside my head. To me, that means skipping photos, even some that have the potential to become beautiful images, where there's no intent...

    Fun with Nikon Images 2023

    This became so interesting that I had to find it on the map. And what did I find, except for the huge quarries? Lots of beautiful nature and what seem to be some great golf courses. I'm a terrible golf player, but I may have to go there to play anyway... some time into the future. The worse my...
