    Tell her to install GIMP, and when she wants to use masks, to google for "gimp masks" - If nothing else, it should open her eyes to latex and other deviants


    P.S. Googling "gimp masks" is not safe at work.

    Need I remind you that APUG isn't US-centric, sir? :P

    Language, my friend, is something you can never learn too little off.
    Whether you go to Japan, Russia or wherever, making an effort to greet people in their own language (like hello, thank you, goodbye) will always, without exception. put you in a favorable light.

    ......ANd she says she doesn't like JAZZ either... I listen to it all day.....

    ........ at least my 17 year-old and I have 1950-1970's Jazz, Steely Dan, Rush, and Yes in common.

    Time to show the apprentice a tilt-shift lens then, Master... So what kind of music does she listen to that you can get to explore then, old man?



    (Rush is rather geeky stuff, but Steely Dan and Jazz, yes please.)

That does not mean that you open your aperture all the way then hope that every highlight beyond field of focus turns into sea of donuts.

    If you want to have a sea of donuts, MAKE a sea of donuts. Don't just shoot fifty frames them delete forty nine, hoping to get the one shot with the most donutty goodness.

    Stop and think for a second and you might realize that, if you try, you might be able to make an angelic halo appear over somebody's head. Now, THAT would be cool bokeh! You didn't even have to use Photoshop to do it.

    Maybe, someday, it might be fun to tinker but I'm not about to spend a boatload of money on a lens just for making donuts.

    P.S. The guy's picture was not a sea of donuts. Just one or two annular highlights in the background. I just said that as an example.
    I stopped and thought but my camera doesn't delete frames like yours must. I am afraid I don't know much about photoshop. Thankfully used Cat lenses are quite cheap, probably due to the derision of experts.

    Great observation!!

    I'm glad we have had some fun with this. I am not seriously demonizing this young women.
    Just her generation, and how knowing a few catch phrases doesn't make 20 somethings as smart as they THINK.

    I'm a car guy too, these youngsters are like that "Merc w123", and I say oh a 300D? They act so smug.
    I am wondering how many people I drove nuts when I was 20?

    Happy Saturday, I am going into the darkroom to print (someone else's negatives) today.

    Yes... I couldn't believe what I heard. And if you could see her, she is cute, and it was so funny to me.

    I have a lens with a malfunctioning diaphragm which won't close, so it always produces "brokeh".

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
