ACDSee Ultimate 2018

Long before there was Adobe Lightroom, there was ACDSee.  The latest version of it is ACDSee Ultimate 2018 (just released).  I think I was using ACDSee back in 2003 when it was just ACDSee (I want to say version 5).

New F2.0 Lens

I received my new f2.0 lens from B&H today.  Impressively small for a “normal” lens.  I expected it to be as big as the zoom lens I broke last week.  It’s difficult to tell from photos, but this is a great size for a prime 50mm equivalent lens.

Only a Distraction

Someone said color is only a distraction when it comes to good photography.  I put my camera in black and white mode and went out taking pictures.  It’s true.  You pay more attention to composition and lighting when shooting in B&W.  Color is a distraction.

Misused Terms in Photography

The topic of misused terms in photography came to me when someone asked about “the industry standard”.  Industry standard implies a written, documented, industry accepted design, set of protocols and mode of operation.  An example of an industry standard in photograph is ISO.
