Sanderson is quite big. Could lengthen it to David St John Sanderson-Wookie-Kardasian. That's a fairly big name. Need a bloody big business card.

:D

In summer we'll have a BBQ at my place... after I buy a BBQ... place is big enough though. Probably not suitable for a large group in winter, but I'll come out for pizza.

Read last sentence ...........

Time we changed the meaning of a word we all use

photographic

photo = taken with camera / graphic = edited to blazes in photoshop

"Light" can be added latter via software.

The purist me in wonders what now is the difference between a painting and a photograph ...... artistic licence gone to far. CS6 has made some big changes to content aware tool.

I guess this sheds a light on answer. Maybe im just showing my age and the reaction to change as its not a gradual but rather dramtic shift.

I don't see anything done there hasn't been done before in the darkroom 100 years ago.

Capturing the light is only 50% of the process, manipulating it, adding to it and removing from it as you develop and print is the other 50%.

I think what people are doing in PS is a lot more extreme though...

In ye olden days the number and quality of photos was lower, because kit was worse, heavier, 'processing' was harder etc.

I know now in landscapes I see hundreds of stunning images most of which wouldnt either exist or be anywhere near the same quality if not for digital & processing.

Not taking anything away from the historic greats they worked well with what they had, and often it stands the test of time, but things have moved on.

you're not wrong - Harry Burton took approx 1400 shots in 1922 of a particular subject & I can't help but wonder how many shots he would have taken if he had a digital camera at the time...


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5

Hey all, anyone following the WRC stages? Pretty keen to shoot some action, but never followed it before and navigation is not my area of expertise! Oh for a GPS :P

The question is did the photographer capture natures natual beauty or did they make her into a drag queen by PP the hell out of it.
Are those rays of light real or photoshop trickery.

Make me wonder how many "landscape" photographers realy understand the land they try to capture.

How could I really embrase motorsport photography when I had never been a motorsport compeditor. Yes I could take a photo but could I realy conect and know what is actuality happening comming into a corner, as to give the photo/viewer a true sence of what the rider experenced.

Compare my work to cliffs ........ says it all.

Equipment has become more affordable as well. Even a cheapy digi cam and a cheapy 'puter can give wonderful results.
