Wondering why I haven’t shared my 51st birthday waterfall pics yet? This is why. I can’t do anything with my RAW photos without making more of a mess. If you’re not into photography this is one post you can just skip.
Summed up in one line “I like almost everything better about Lightroom except renting it, but I’m trying to switch to On1“. I’m aware that my initial opinion is likely biased because I don’t want to learn another program. I’ve had different On1 offerings since it was On One somewhere back around 2015, but fell into using Lightroom and Photoshop more often with On1 as a plug-in instead of a stand-alone. Many of their programs can be used either way. And, to be fair I use programs until they won’t work any longer. So either one, On1 Raw 2021 or Lightroom subscription would both have a slight learning curve. I just prefer to concentrate on shooting than sitting in the office working!
I get the title is catchy and I always learn something, but geez nothing like feeling stupid 🙂 I’d guess over half the book applies to all photography, not just the Nikon D3500 operation. I did visit Nikon’s own website (Japan) to watch a video, where I learned I’ve been pronouncing it wrong. It’s “knee-con instead of nigh-con” and some even say “Nick-on”. Seems there are lots of post about how you’re supposed to say Nikon. Bet they don’t care how you say it as long as you buy their brand.
I had the post (below) already written when I bought a DSLR this month.
I know, gasp, right? I never thought I’d buy one.
A Nikon D3500 with 2 kit lenses to be exact. I’ve been trying to win a DSLR by entering contests for years. I just wanted to know that I knew how to operate one. My first impression of my new Nikon D3500 was boy, it’s light. With the 18-55 lens on it, it seemed to weigh less than my Pany’s. Typically DSLR’s are bigger and heavier.
Oh my, I think I have too many tripods :O and that’s not even counting the little ones. Honey, if you’re reading this, yes I’ll be listing my 2 Mefotos soon and the glow in the dark Splat! 🙂 It took a bit to figure out what matters to me and what to look for in a tripod.
I didn’t like the new Alta Pro2+ in person after all the research I did as much as I did on paper. Video is 15 minutes of my thoughts on the two tripods. I’m sure the same things that bug me, you may like and vice-versa but I really look to these videos when I’m looking at getting new gear and wanted to give back. I’ve learned that if I don’t process the video right away it sits in a folder while I forget everything I wanted to share. Hence why you haven’t seen the final review of my photography backpacks!
I purchased some new backgrounds for my product photography clients, to give us some new choices. I have fabric and I like it, so I clicked a sale link for fabric ones, but once I got to the site, I choose patterned backdrops and ended up with vinyl.
