There is a long thread about the Coronavirus with stats, links, news and discussions about all of those. I'm avoiding all the stat conversations. It really does not interest me because I can't do anything about it. I do respect everyone's interest and input. I follow the John Hopkins link/s and follow our authorities recommendations. I base that on this.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I'm revisiting a video series I purchased from wildlife photographer Steve Perry for NR using both LR and PS. He has a very cool technique to send two flies from LR to PS, use layers and make composite for optimal noise control for both the subject and background. $15 and well worth it. I have no affiliation with him or the site.
I purchased Affinity Photo for %50 off even if I don't plan to use it right away. I had some issues with Topaz and deleted it all but since I had paid for Studio 2 and Denoise AI I decided to try it again. Wow. I may not be going to DXO for high ISO editing for a while.
I have a 5K retina screen. I like to preview my files after exporting for screen and before posting at sites. Mac's Preview is not 5K compatible so images have jaggies. PS shows the image at ½ the size (Affinity Photo as well) so it is hard to judge. Trying to find a 5K compatible viewer or create a process.
Since the gym is closed we are doing a 1hr power walk every day. My Cancer Care volunteer driving gig program has been shut down as of today. I was supposed to drive last week but I declined because I was not past 14 days post travel. I was supposed to drive this Friday but that is done. We are finally going to paint the interior trim and doors. We did the walls last year. Getting a lot of use out of Netflix these days and forums are helping chew up time. My wife loves to cook and she is good at it. We are going to order out every 4 days to help the local businesses while we can.
