Random Bits And Bobs

Still going through the Canon SD1400IS photos. These images don’t make any sense for a series as they are all disconnected and show no cohesion. It’s just stuff I thought was interesting for one reason or another. Usually the light and the shadows. Hence the title.

I didn’t use Nik Color Efex Pro with these images. I thought about it and I realized that the more filters I threw at the image the quality would degrade. While not being a total photo nerd, my suspicious is that because these images were jpeg and not RAW is that every time I loaded another filter it would just cause the image quality to slip just that little bit more. Considering I am using a cheap and tawdry filter to begin with it made sense to skip one and see if I got better results.

The tonality range in the camera still suffers. In darker color ranges it goes muddy. The one monotone in this collection would have suffered worse if I didn’t back off off the shadows. The images just can’t handle it. The color images tend to be fine in the major focus areas but again, start looking into the shadows and you notice the loss of detail.

One of the interesting things that I have learned from this sometimes frustrating exercise is that you can work any image to get something usable. You still need a decent base image to work off of but provided you are willing to take the time to work with what you got and don’t expect something you can blow up and print wall size you should be ok.

Enjoy.

  1. I love the photos. They are so different from each other. The first, a garden or hardware shop. A wheel barrel next to potted plants gives one a feeling of hard work putting them into a garden. Number 2, a nice afternoon visit with girlfriends on the patio. The third is my very favorite. The blue spiral staircase. I would have loved to have them. The beautiful gowns in the window and the flowers, what’s not to like with those two. The blue wire or cable I do not know but it looks like lots of hard work. Finally, the lowly cone. The one that stands the watch no matter if he is dirty or rolled over, he is always ready for the next job. I am glad you elevated his status with a photo of him. Very nice.
