Monday Photo Roundup - March 4
The "Walking Man" sculptures in Deep Ellum are common photo subjects around here, but I like to stop by there when time permits. Something about the whimsical nature of them that makes me smile.
Further east, there is a nice photo contest going on in the "Texas Forest Trail Region."
Strobist reviews the sub-$100 PocketWizard Plus X. Looks good to me.
Great shots from young photojournalists...
Yes, post-processing makes a big difference in the look of your photos. Even if you spent thousands on a camera. The "Look" from most professional photographers comes from good work with the camera, and more work after the fact in the computer. Simple tweaks to white balance, color saturation and contrast make a huge difference.
Speaking of which, photoshop guru Matt Kloskowski's Lightroom presets are a lot of fun to play with. And free!
It looks like Canon has some nice new low-light technology in the works. Looks like it is video-only at this point, but still... it is great to see even more progress in sensor sensitivity.
Have a great week.
