Contemplating life

That's life. We all know the feeling. Spotted this chap doing a bit of contemplating in the street in Leeds, UK.

My life seems to revolve around unpacking boxes and sorting stuff out at the moment but I'm not complaining. Just wish I had more time for the blog and my own photography.

Till soon,

Paul

New start and RAW software

Star and moon.

I'm sitting in my new studio/office having just gone through the trials and tribulations of moving. Everything is up and running but there's still a lot of work to be done.

I've got quite few ideas for new blogs so stick around. More soon. I've noticed that quite a few people are reading older articles including assessments I made about RAW software back in 2006.

Things move on at quite a pace in our digital world, so if you are doing research on the net it's always handy to check when an article was written and then try to find the latest information. Sounds obvious, I know. Of course some things don't date as quickly, like editorial viewpoints.

On the subject of RAW software; I use Lightroom and am extremely happy with the results. I also use CS3. I think the last time I wrote about RAW conversion software I was using DPP from Canon, which is fine for what it does. I've also tried the latest version of Capture One but don't see any real benefit (for my purposes) over Lightroom. As with most things it's up to the user to get the best result from whatever software they are using and often the choice comes down to workflow preference rather than the quality of the result.

I'll be back with more articles soon.

Cheers,

Paul

Big project

Locked ship's hatch.

I thought I'd best upload an image in case you were wondering what had happened to me. I'm working on a big project at the moment - which leaves me with barely a spare minute. The decks should be cleared in about two weeks and I've got some cracking ideas for articles in the near future.

See you soon,

Paul
