Lovely lady.

Here is my bride of nearly 48 years, Carol. Lost her to cancer two years ago, on Apr 20. She was happiest in her garden. My heart will always treasure the memories we made together.

Lou, she was a lovely lady. I'm Sorry for your loss. It was way too soon.-------Ron

I was hoping to get similar photos of other's wives, girl friends, husbands, etc. in return. I must have worded the name of the thread wrong. Please feel free to contribute.

Beautiful Lady. How did you get so lucky?

My company sent me to Texas, where my good fortune continues. This is another snapshot taken a couple of years ago. I was fooling with my camera and said " Hey, smile".

My wife in our first year of marriage, 1960. The camera has always loved her as much as I do. This shot is a copy of a kodachrome slide. Taken on a roadside on Oahu, Hi.

I think that this photo speaks for it's self.

Last question I promise .I heard you can get arrested for shooting jpeg

In Texas you might get shot for shooting raw.

Yes, unless you have something useful to add that hasn't already been discussed.

Thank you, I appreciate the advice, especially the old boat cushion. I like the idea of Bombay Hook; it's farther north. I'm about 1:45, depending on traffic, north of Dover so Bombay Hook is close enough to be a day trip. Do you know of any good spots on Fenwick island?
I recently retired and I'm looking for interesting places to go shooting. I make a few trips a year to Conowingo in MD and Middle Creek in PA but I've always wanted to check out Delaware.

All finished with jpeg vs. raw, are we?

I'm one of those who advocates for NOT having everything online all the time. Since my high school days, I've filed everything in chronological order. It's relatively easy for me to find negatives I made in 1969. (My event memory is pretty good, and besides, I have my yearbooks to back it up.)

Since working in Lightroom, I've started a new catalog every time I've started a new drive. The new catalog is on that drive. The drives are stored by date, say, 2014 to 2016 for one of them. When I need an image from 2015, I plug in that drive and point Lightroom to that catalog. Boom!

On that drive, my images are separated by year, and event within the year. Each event includes the date and a few descriptive words. In the Library, it is very easy to find the event I need, pop up the images on the grid or "light table" motif, click on the image, and do what I want with it in Develop or Print (or just export it).

I worked in a large portrait lab for decades. When we transitioned to digital production in the early 2000s, we had a similar setup. We had 72 TB online, and a database application to manage it. We could find and load any job (event) in seconds, by following a simple path similar to this one:

Territory Number --> Customer Number --> Job Number --> Session Number

Job numbers were structured so that we knew the year by looking at them. The database stored the file location for each job on the server. A separate database identified each subject in a job's subject database, which led to all the associated order data, and the associated image(s) for each subject. Between our retail territories and our wholesale customer territories, we photographed millions of people each year, so we had to be able to keep them straight!

If the market changes to the point where my old drives can't be read by current ports, I'll just disassemble the cases, pull out the bare drives, and use a universal drive adapter to copy data to a new drive standard. They've built adapters like these for many years now, and I've no doubt they'll update it for USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 or whatever they need to.

Gee Bill, that's a whole lotta shit I really didn't need to know about!

Thanks for response. Is FOTOR more capable than the Microsoft packaged edit s/w found in windows 10?

I'm on windows9 so I can't help you with that one. I just think that Free Fotor answers all my needs.

Auto focus - Nikon D3400 w/ AF-P NIKKOR 70-300 . I am new at this photography thing. I am learning as I go along. The D3400 was a Christmas present from my generous brother so I am still learning. I will take any input that you can give. Thanks Bob

The main thing to consider when photographing birds is the use of a good sturdy tripod. I like to use the highest ISO with the least noticeable noise, f8 or better, and at least 1/500 or faster. The more you do, the better you will get.

The real raw data off the sensor is not viewable. The camera processor adjusts the exposure, uses the bad sensor table to delete unusable pixels, and performs lossless compression. The file has no white balance; that has to be applied later in the viewing or JPEG conversion.

At this point the camera creates a JPEG file from the DNG file. The file is. Created from the DNG file and from the exposure data.

Or you can download the DNG file into Lightroom and process it in a way that you think good. Then you can convert it to JPEG. The camera has minimal controls for the process. Lightroom has more. Photoshop still more for DNG to JPEG conversion. And yes the conversion process limits what can be done with the file afterwards - color space, white balance, and compression type/loss level - are all imbedded now. Quite a bit of complexity but everything has reasonable defaults that you can start with. Still there are parts of the conversion process that are “automatic” .

Then there is the Silverfast software. Basically a user unfriendly and unforgiving editor and conversion program. It allows complete control of the JPEG conversion process. It can also disassemble a JPEG - extracting it’s contents and allowing editing of it. But as I said, it’s difficult to use - really difficult.

I shoot in NEF (Nikon RAW) exclusivity. I’ll do NEF+JPG when I have to deliver results very quickly. I normally deliver JPEG unless something else was contracted for such as TIF or PSD. One of the reasons I like JPG is that it really can’t be edited - I think of it like a slide.

Lastly - I miss Kodachrome!

I shoot only jpeg. I use free "FOTOR" for touch up. I love my Sony A65 with the 18-135 SAM. Now how the hell do I make this better.

That is not very sharp. Were you using auto or manual focus? What camera/lens combo were you using?

RAW IS FOR MASOCHISTS! I have all the faith in the world to stay with jpeg. I tried working raw and was never able to achieve a better natural image than what jpeg produced with one shutter actuation. If you hate people, live in consistently bad weather, and can never leave well enough alone, go for raw.

In that regard, the good old days are still here, as I still enjoying the very thing you were talking about, these days!

Most places I used to fish are fly only and/or catch and release. I'd love to live in Idaho but I hate winters since I got old.
