So I meet 4 photographers in Old Town, Albuquerque, NM. If I heard correctly they were from Russia and Estonia? Quick photo tour of the US, shoot and run. I wanted to interview them but they had no time.
So I’m making a couple of images of them doing the tourist thing. One almost fell into the fountain.
Could not understand why the images on the wide camera looked so different. Took a minute and a dark place to look at the screen – Albuquerque has 370 days of bright blue sky every year – to see what I had done. Some where/how in changing the ISO, I hit the WB button. They are next to each other and fat fingers will do the trick. Nikon Capture NX 2 will make for an easy fix, but… my bad for the day.
So we have seen the ads Nokia and/or ATT have running showing that you can crop and image and still have something reasonable to look at.
A friend of mine, Perry, has a bird that would love to take chunk out of me if I got close enough, but he looks great and is a good subject.
As you may or may not know, the 1020 makes 2 files for each image made. The small image of the bird is 1.32 MB 1728×3072 and the larger image is 6.72 MB 4352×7712 and both are 72 dpi & sRGB; white balance: auto, digital zoom: 1, EXIF version: 0220, flash: auto, metering mode: average, exposure bias: 0, ISO: 100, 1/30 sec. @ f/2.2.
this is the 1.32 MB image
this is the 6.72 MB file
this is the crop on the bird
and what it looks like
very, very slight sharping… all work done with Windows Photo Gallery 2012. Will discuss WPG2012 later.
So how big a print would you like.
One cravat with all of this. The HiRes image is on the phone so a USB link is required and you will find the file name as: WP_20130928_19_41_00_Pro__highres.jpg Year, month, day, time.
The image is also imbedded with a Geotag which provides a sort of journal for me to reference on the images I make with the Nikon’s.
We The People 2013 project is a SAP, self assigned project. A way for a photographer to inflict bodily hard to his/herself while thinking they are creating the end-all, be-all images for the world to see. Or so it seems.
Take one aging photojournalist, a new model of car from Ford, C-Max, and add in some Nikon‘s, GoPro‘s, lots of computers, storage, other gear and map out a 7,000 mile loop around America talking to people about how they feel right now in our current historical timeline.
That is what happening and in this blog I’ll write about photography, computers, software and how intertwined they are.
Hope you find this interesting and helpful…
