Lake Artemesia: 0eV ISO200
[CVSISo200 > Nikon N80 & Tamron 28-80 @ 0eV > Gimp] Now *this* time I got here just as the sun was setting, so the brightest shots that I could take were of the sun/shadow line about halfway up the trees. In fact I came here for that simple reason, it was getting dar, I wanted to finish out a roll and get some high-contrast shots so I could see what was going on with the exposure-setting. So a lot of these shots are dark because it was getting dark. They are also dark because I had to bring the brightness WAY down from what the developer/scanner gave me. It of course pushed this up to "0eV" or whatever it thinks that is. Then indeed the girl running the machine pushed them up another "stop" at random depending on how dark *she* thought the shots were. So I had to have her run it all over again so they were processed the same way...and then she wouldn't back it off another "stop" for me. She became, shall we say, "reticent". Scanned the cut film from 2 rolls of 24-shot film in 10 minutes to CD and shut down and went home for the night. Of course, she didn't worry about whether the film was upside-down or rightside-up or whatever, or what order it was in...so that blew-up my whole 15 calibration-shots that were on the same roll, here. Chalk another one up for digital. Absolutely no control over what is going on with the film once you give it to someone else, *plus* no exif info. Zero. Not fun. I still do not think that that is worth the fact that I could get great color and fine-detail out of this shot, despite all that. This would have been a total mess with the G9, maybe not even much better with the A200. And you think that you would have gotten better results with a 5DMk2 or 7D? LOL No you would not have. So you may not have the "control" with film that you have (or think that you have) with digital, but on the other hand you can easily get better results. It's just less reliable, you walk a finer edge between success and failure, and it definitely requires better technique in some ways and less technique in others. And the cost to play at the 35mm level is far lower, though of course that has to be considered in light of the plethora of cheap digital gear. As the more or less "dumb" guy that I know who loves to buy film gear and shoot film says, "if you know what you are doing you will get great results, easily, and far cheaper than with an expensive digital camera". True but there is definitely a distinct set of pluses and minuses with shooting film and you walk much closer to the edge of failure. There's always the chance that the shot will just suck because the exposure or focus is just wrong (it's a simple statistical issue, the camera doesn't always get it right) or a roll will get ruined due to the human factor. So as good as film can be, you still run the risk of getting crappy shots, and it's a higher risk, no way around it. But as always, when you get great results shooting film that you could just not have gotten (rationally) shooting digital, the ends justify the means. The payback is right there in front of you. If you have to shoot jpegs off a tripod with a D700 or A850 to get this level of IQ, or spend an hour in Capture Pro with a raw shot? You're in trouble. This took me 5 minutes. And that's assuming that you could actually match this with a raw shot. And it's still not a real light-table or enlargement. It's a Flickr photo that anyone with a decent cellphone camera could take at this resolution. So you see we are somewhere between "vast overkill" and "a shot that's good enough that it makes you happy to look at it, not to mention entice several someones to buy a print of it". And printing is a whole 'nother issue. But I am in that range with a $75 camera & lens. Not a $2500 camera and a $750 lens...even if you can write that off on your taxes, that still has to be considered, because it means that at the very least if you are trying to make a living taking and selling shots like this, then you are up against every nutjob like me with even halfway-decent gear that cost them virtually nothing. Not to mention that I can easily generate 30MP from scanning this shot straight off the film. Dilute that to 150dpi and we're talking about 30x50" easily. Pump that 30MP into BlowUP! or something similar, which will give you decent images at 1600%? And things get really scary. Now you're talking poster-sized shots without Bayer-blur, NR or diffraction. If you're looking for great IQ, you *have* to consider film. Sure sometimes, in some shots, for some scenes, in some instances, in some situations, digital is better. True. But not always. And film is often pretty good, occasionally better than digital can be at least digital at a reasonable price in terms of equipment and time. And if you need to shoot a $2500 DSLR and a $1500 lens you know what I mean. If you *don't* need to shoo
Sun Sets on a Decade
From a newspaper report of changing social attitudes in New Zealand over the last decade: It's just like that old Pink Floyd song says: "And then one day you find, 10 years have got behind you." The passage of a decade doesn't mark an era. It's not even one generation, even if the last decade did start with the hoopla of the less-than-deadly Y2K bug and an argument about whether 2000 was the start of a new century or the end of an old one. While there's no argument that 2011 is the first year of the "20-teens", just what did change in the past 10 years? The alterations of a decade are subtle: shrubs become trees, houses get painted, jobs come and go, children grow up. But when you look in the mirror, not that much seems different. Yet, in the past 10 years, New Zealand has become older, better educated, less scared, browner, more adventurous in its eating habits, and more tolerant yet less open to new ideas. Attitudes to issues of conscience have tracked our economic fortunes – a roller-coaster ride of debt-fuelled wealth followed by a crash that left us poorer than when the decade began. That ride was mirrored in a burst of enthusiasm for saving the planet during the boom, which has waned as cash consciousness has collided with conscience, even though "the environment as an issue has come of age", with more than eight out of 10 New Zealanders now expressing concerns in this area. We know all this and more because watching closely through the past decade were any number of pollsters, statisticians, academic zeitgeist pulse-takers and general data-gatherers. Among them was Roy Morgan Research, the Australian pollster, which issued its first New Zealand "State of the Nation Report" last month. Based on more than 115,000 interviews with New Zealanders between January 2001 and June 2010, asked in weekly batches, of people aged 14 and over, the report reflects Roy Morgan's anticipation that in the first decade of the 21st century, citizens of the developed world would need its help to face "an increasingly complex social environment". Not only would this generate demand for the company's research and interpretations, it reasoned, but it would also increase public support for those phone calls from pollsters that always seem to coincide with sitting down to dinner. Among the big trends it watched in New Zealand: the changing role of women, redefinitions of work roles and family, the impact of new technology and globalisation, the "middle-ageing" of the country's population, and attitudes to health, security and quality of life, including "the value of time" and the environment. Among the main findings, some of which show a growing "stay at home" tendency consistent with getting older, are: A lot more eggheads: In December 2001, 14.7 per cent of New Zealanders aged over 14 years old had a tertiary qualification. In December 2010, that figure has jumped to 22.7 per cent – one of the most dramatic shifts that the report records outside the impact of digital technology. Women gained more than men in this rise, going from 13.2 per cent with a degree 10 years ago to 22.4 per cent now. Men graduates increased from 16.2 per cent to 23.1 per cent. A more adventurous palate: While Chinese food is most commonly cited as a favoured cuisine, it's down from 81.1 per cent to 74.9 per cent over the 10 years. Italian food is steady at 52 per cent. But it's Indian, Thai and Japanese food that has stormed the national tastebuds. Going to a cafe has jumped from something half of us did at least once every three months in 2001 to 56 per cent today. But we're eating out less: It may seem as if the world is awash with pizza parlours, but apart from "dining in" at McDonald's, Burger King or KFC, which rose slightly over the decade, we are eating out and buying takeaways less by about five percentage points across the gamut of licensed restaurant dining (from 57.3 per cent to 52 per cent), getting takeaways (down from 72.8 per cent to 68.6 per cent), going to the pub (28.2 per cent compared with 34 per cent 10 years ago), and BYO restaurants, where only 18.7 per cent – close to one in five people – had eaten out in the previous three months, compared with almost one in four (23.8 per cent) a decade earlier. Rising respect for Maori culture: Ten years ago, just over half of New Zealanders said Maori culture was "an essential component of New Zealand society". That's now at 61.5 per cent, although that does still mean four out of 10 don't buy this. We're cool with Elton John's baby: Well, relatively speaking. In 2001, almost one in four agreed that homosexual parents should be allowed to adopt. Today, that figure is just over half. On the other hand, almost half of New Zealanders are saying religion should be taught once a week in school, up a notch from 10 years ago. New stuff seems less interesting: Perhaps not a huge mov

Stripes, numbers, colors, and logos- the graphic visual look of a racecar has to stand out from all the others as they go zooming by. Most people don't know that racing cars from the likes of Porsche, Ferrari, Maserati, and Lotus were given their looks not by marketing strategists or designers, but by pure chance. Go Faster is a collection of over one hundred examples of racecar design that documents the carefree anarchy in which they were created. In the book, each colorful racing car is featured next to a blank, white model. Thanks to this juxtaposition, Go Faster not only takes its readers on a breakneck ride through images of racing history, but also shows them exactly how the graphics modulate the look of the vehicle. The neutral models in the book also give readers ample opportunity to imagine their own possibilities for graphic design in motor sports. In this way, Go Faster makes an ideal gift for anyone interested in racing and high speeds.
