    Pretty much every photo you see, whether film or digital, has been post-processed in some way, so don’t worry about using Lightroom to edit your images. It’s not cheating, and it doesn’t make you a lesser photographer. How, and how much, you process your photos is your choice. I would suggest always trying to frame your images correctly in camera though. Composition and lighting are extremely important. Digital gives a lot of leeway for cropping of photos but it’s always best to get as much right at the time of shooting as you possibly can, even if your intent is to crop to a different ratio (e.g. square) later.

    “Like the one on Surrey Street, but that one’s green.”
  4. Its on Disney XD starting this Saturday in the UK. As per usual, Disney have scheduled it to be aired about a dozen times per episode but have neglected to allow it to be series linked.
  5. I’ve just finished watching this on iPlayer. Really enjoyed it. Brendan Fraser is great in it. I thought it was a one-off series covering the kidnapping, but there are further seasons hopefully planned covering other parts of the Getty dynasty, with season 2 apparently set in the 30s and documenting Getty senior’s rise.
  6. I reckon he was impersonated by The Thing all along and has been busy constructing a vehicle using assimilated reindeer and a flying sleigh cobbled together from bits of Sno-Cats and helicopters. Now some meddling kids have caused it to crash to Earth... Cristmas is at risk. And so is all life on the planet.

    I like this one a lot. I think it would make a nice square crop if you cut off the left (removing the vents).

    You can brush up on Bradley Walsh with these two clips...

    I hope they get a line about Fanny Chmelar into the script just to see Walsh’s outtakes.

    I was trying to place the hilltop. There are lots of edges like that above Hathersage and Grindleford, as mentioned in the dialog, but it wasn’t one of those, so I wondered if it was out near Stockbridge. Glad you’ve cleared that one up.

    They seemed to move Norton Water Tower to somewhere near the city centre too.

    The big problem with having the episode shot in your home town is that you spend half the time thinking the local accents are wrong, and the other half noticing how they’ve taken complete artistic license with the geography. Otherwise, I thought the story itself pretty average. It didn’t shy away from...
  13. Just noticed that season 2 is back on BBC2 tonight at 10:50.

    This was an interesting look at the shortcomings of Apple’s Portrait Mode on the new iPhone. To be fair, It’s impressive stuff, albeit with obvious shortcomings, and for the casual photographer who doesn’t really care about the technical aspects of photography, it’ll be a cool new effect to (over)use.

    I use Lightroom for 95% of my stuff. The ony times I really tend to use Photoshop are for importing colour negatives (I have a photoshop action that handles the colours better than the scanner software), blending images that I've focus-stacked, or to add white borders to my images (I made an action that I can run on batches of photos far more easily than achieving the same in Lightroom). I have been looking at luminosity masks lately to see how they might improve my (infrequent) landscape shots, but I can't say I know very much about them yet. Almost all my primary editing is done in Lightroom though. I posted a picture to Flickr recently that looked pretty awful as a RAW file, but turned out quite nice after pulling the details back. It'll never win any awards, but it gives an idea of what you can get from a RAW file. It's the same location as the second film shot in my post above. Before: After: Happy to have a go at editing one of your RAW files. @PopeSmokesDope (at least I think it was Pope) did something similar a year or so back, which was fun.
