  1. Keeping up with Digital shooters- part five

    by , 11-02-2009 at 11:01 AM
    Another thing that I noticed about digital photography is that it's advancing. Just when you think that the cameras couldn't be improved on, the next generation of image sensor comes out. The film cameras are no more advanced now than when the F6 series stopped production before most people even knew that it existed.

    Our last mixed-format outing involved an old school house on a ranch out of Likely California, a Nikon D300, a 4X5 monorail camera, and a clear (very cold) night. During ...

    Now that I've figured out that you can push slide film two stops effectively, I can (somewhat) keep up with the digital shooters in the studio. VS100 can be shot as ISO 400. When I scanned the negative, I left the white balance setting "as-shot". Comparing the screen shot to the film, the colors look about right.

    The next time I met up with my digital shooters...

    First let me say that no fish were harmed in the making of these pictures. Two of them are living happily at my sister's house and one is at my house. One has the curious habit of floating on his side. Once you get his attention he acts normal. Weird huh?

    Dan's result:

    The first time I had the opportunity to shoot with my friend Dan in the digital arena:

    I didn't do quite as well:

    My camera was too large to get close enough to the center with the other cameras. The edge of the background got into the reflections. Also, the speedlights had to be turned ...

    I just paid my subscription. What do I do next? re-explore the site to see how different it is for a paid subscriber. I see that I have a blog and a gallery. Cool! Now, what do I use the blog for? How about a place to publish my progress on keeping up with digital shooters.

    I've found that the primary use for digital photography is filling up hard drives with photos that will never be printed or even viewed ever again. That's a little like the boxes of negatives that most of us have ...
