This is " what I heard ": When digital phohography was in its infantcy, many companys and some newer start ups, began going with the new tech. Kodak had the opportunity to go with the flow. But, they did not believe it would ever work. So, they did not invest into the new market. Bottom line the got left behind and took a beating while progress surged ahead.
I have On1 2018.5 and have barely bagan learning and applying edits when 2019vs came out. Been on the fence getting the update. But with so much positive feedback, I'm getting it.
Ty 4 the quick reply. All I can say is ah schucks! LoL I was really hoping to take the easy road. Guess I will have to do the ol trial and error methods until " I get it."
I have too many pots on the fire. Or as the saying goes: jack of all trades, a master of none. At 75, I stay busy. I'm learning about shooting off auto. Albeit slowllly! I'm wondering why can't I just shoot in auto? Then I'll do all the great for looks on my post processing program( On1Raw)? I have been reading posts here and most everyone seems to shoot off auto. Can I get a great photo after pp that was shot from auto mode? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.THX!
Thx for your poignant answer. Yes I know " they're masking an image" duuh. The best part of your answer was " dive in". Thx and have a blessed day!
So, are you saying when I make an edit on hmmm say clouds, then I have to use the mask over the area in oder for the change to take effect?
Perhaps I'm making this harder than it really is. When masking is done I read that it has a lot to do with transparency and filters. I can watch how to videos all day and just do not understand why anyone would white or black out a photo.Bottom line, what is the purpose? Is there a simpler solution until " I get it"? I apologize for having to drag y'all down to such low depth of my lack of knowledge.
We have them here in Texas. Red Tailed Hawk. Nice photo!
I like the 1st one. It shows actual size and tells something about the scene. The other one leaves me wondering. Is it a small clump of flowers or is it a mass? Of course the 1st one shows the answer. As far as focus, unless it is extreemly bad and very noticeable, it's ok to me. But, do YOU like it?
This is my opinion but it is not typical for everyone who has used stock agencies. I hope you don't find pitfalls as I did and you can find it rewarding. After many many attempts, I have given up on listing any of my photos. It's just not woth the time nor effort ( for me ). Esp since the reward is so little. Just as the previous post said. They are picky. You stand the risk of them publishing your items w/o your payment and possibly your knowledge. Yeah, I'm sure there are legit agencies but it will take a lot of time to build up to the point where you can get top or at least close to top money for your shots. Bottomline, ( 4 me ) at 75 I have bigger fish to fry. Good luck to you if you decide to embark on this endeavour.
You must be a spokesperson for Lens Crafters!! hahha
I was listening in on a partial conversation with two photographers. They were talking about stacking but I didn't get enough info to know what they were yak'n about. Any clues? Does it have something to do with layers?
TY srt and tde. You're right! I do over complicate matters. I enjoy shooting in auto. Mostly because I don't want to take the time to change stuff before my subject decides to move on. Landscape and sunsets are a diff matter as they are slow movers. Thanks again!
SS you are one funny dude! Yes' I am consumed as in ate up with it! hahhha Thx 4 the reply, I will work on it!
Ok all y'all camera smarties....I truly do want to learn manual shooting. And I understand that when a setting is changed that it will affect another setting somehow. Sorry to say this but like the dumb blond joke " I just don't get it". I have watched countless videos and have tried "on my own " to learn it but in frustration I just wanted to throw my camera BUT of course I won't do that. I guess my question is this - Is there a chart ( like to a color wheel ) that will show that if I make a change in one setting that it will show what else it affects and how to correct what needs to corrected? From lower than novice and slower than slow, I thank you!
