    PP Challenge?

    by muzza22au » Wed May 30, 2012 4:49 pm

    Are there going to be more PP challenges? I would love to learn more and see what others are able to do.

    Pp challenges were only ever started by members wanting to see what others could do with an image.

    When I've got a bit more time to shoot ill post something, in the meantime feel free . . . .

    Aaaah, I have questions for you Richard,

    For a start: Why shoot at 800 iso?

    Then: Why over expose by three stops?

    If you don't get the data in the file at capture how can PP hope to be able to explore the full range of detail?

    In proper photography there was a popular saying that was kind of axiomatic: Get all the data in the negative because the NEGATIVE is the equivalent of the musical score. And the PRINT is the performance.

    If the data is missing in the FILE (the NEGATIVE) then the scope of the OUTPUT IMAGE (the PRINT) is restricted.

    After pulling the exposure back by more than 2.5 stops the tonal values of the exposed skin of the sunlit hand and the leg near the sock, as well as the shoes and the paving are near as damn it to 255.

    I have not tried for any other effect than just getting a detailed rendition of what was there.

    Out in Sydney sun I seldom even use a meter - at 100iso it is invariably 1/350th at f/8. Maybe I would open up a stop for the sake of better luminosity on the shaded face area.

    Anyway, home late and wearily waiting for the electric blanket to heat up, this is what I came up with without trying to be excessive in my treatment:

    Cheers,
    Walter Glover
