Colin, I believe that a certain amount of "touching up" is needed on many, if not all pictures. It is very rare that a scanner will produce an absolutley clean, and perfect image. Here is how my "mentor" described it, "A film image is less sharp than what you see in real life, with your eye. When yo...Jump to post
I agree with Joe 100%. I've had those questions asked about many of my sunset shots. I find it insulting to have people question the validity of my pix. However, when someone does have a composite photo, it should be marked as "composite" or not allowed on the site...
Joe, I believe this came up on the Skyone list a while back on the Kodak scratches. I have been rather lucky in sending shots to Kodak, only 1 or 2 have been destroyed, and about 3 or 4 have minor scratches on them. The independant lab I send to does as good of a job... Happy Holidays, cc...Jump to post
Where's your sense of adventure Mark??? Just dont allow your skin to be exposed. Anyway, shooting in the snow (i've never done that) I have heard that the reflective light will be greater, thus making it harder to get a good picture. However, if I were you, I would go up 1/2 stop (or if you use a Ni...Jump to post
Hey Mike, Cameraworld (a local B&H...not as big) does not stock the 20 roll boxes of K64. When going on a shoot, lets say to Los Angeles or North Carolina, I bring anywhere from 20 to 40 rolls with me. Going through security and taking out 20 of these individual boxes out, is rather time consuming.....Jump to post
Mike, Thanks for the info on the place in Denver. I will check them out...I agree with what you said about shooting what you are comfortable with 100%. USAir, I really dislike posting my work (or anyone else's for that matter) on forums, unless it's nessicary. Thank you for your comment though. One ...Jump to post
First off, shooting with slides, regardless if it's K64 or Provia, or Agfachrome, the exposures need to be properly set. I think all of us are in agreement there. This is like the Boeing vs. Airbus debate, it'll never end. However, let's compare Mike's Virgin 74 shot with this one. <br><center><a hr...Jump to post
I've shot with the 70-300 lens with K64, and the results were OK. I am not a Kodachrome fan, at all, because I believe the film does not produce "true" colors. Every Kodachrome slide I have had enlarged came out with a blueish cast throughout the shot. If anyone is in the Portland area on a shoot, I...Jump to post
There are lots of Motels around SJC, more to the downtown San Jose area by the Arena (off Almeden, and by 87) Sun is good pretty much any time of day in San Jose. Afternoon is probably the best, from 1400-sunset. Monterey is about 2 hours from San Jose (without traffic, which is highly unlikley)Jump to post
I use a Tamarac bag, it's comfortable, fits up in the overhead. It holds my Nikon F100 Nikon N90 Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 Nikkor 70-300 f/4-5.6 Nikkor 24-120 f/3-4.5 Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Nikon SB-28 flash Pack of 48 AA Bateries It does get heavy when lugging it around an airport, but most of the times on tri...Jump to post
Regarding LAX ramp shooting, LAX is a very tightly secured airport. I have tried with no luck to shoot on the ramp in my last 5 visits, however none have worked. Personally, try SNA first, build friends there, then try LAX...
ps. Mark, hope PHX is good...
Absolutley! I am taking Photography I and Photography II this year (II is an "independant" class) You might be bored for a little while, taking pictures of trees, and flags for example, BUT you WILL learn the basics! You're going to need a 35mm SLR (Manual Everything), and a 50mm lens. Expect to do ...Jump to post
I was searching thru the database for my 777 pictures (i needed one to send in an email) and I noticed that one had been removed (AA 777 tail shot) Please note that this email is not ment to be a complaint, bashing someone or flaming someone. I was curious why it was removed? Finally, in my opinion,...Jump to post
I must say that this was resolved very quickly. In the past when people have used my photos without my permission, it has taken almost one week in some cases to get the site to be taken down or the material to be removed. Sometimes it takes a letter threatning to sue to get it to work. Good work Joh...Jump to post
