I'd be interested in some of the spec stuff. I really like #3 and #5.
Nice work Joe. Want to see that beard into a thick stache when I get up there. Looking forward to seeing you guys.
thanks everyone.@Wes. I shoot a Canon 40D, Raw files only and process with Aperture 2.0#3 was shot with the Canon 50mm F1.4. F3.5, 1/250, ISO 200. Bumped the contrast and definition up a smidge#5 was shot with the Canon 17-40 F4L at 40mm, F4.0, 1/250, ISO 400.This shot was difficult because of the extreme lighting differences between the tree we were standing under and the reflectiveness of the snow not shaded by the tree.To compensate for this I had to do some major recovery of the highlights (mostly background) and slight recovery of the shadows. I also added a small synthetic vignette which enhanced the shadow across the right side of the face.
Jmac- i will if you do.
@C Squad. Thanks for the specs. You have a great set up. I am jealous of your glass. I wish my recovery slider in lightroom 3 did as good of a job as your slider does in Aperture 2.0. I find the recovery slider in LR can blow out the pic if you dont up the black slider. @joe. Em saw your mom the other weekend when we were in Ephrata. I got some interviews coming up over here in Issy, so it doesnt look promising on my getting out to the OP This winter, but when you pass through again give me a call and we should get a beer.
Tell us what you think!
