Selling yourself short is easy for us artists. Our creations become a part of us. It is part of our super-ego. Thus, we are more likely to feed that super-ego than we are to think rationally.
So many photographers are stuck in a paradigm. (Paradigm – a typical example or pattern of something.) Today I address those paradigms.
Often paradigms keep us in a neat little box. People don’t like change, yet they often complain about issues resulting from their paradigm.
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).
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.
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.
