I Now Shoot Exclusively A Foveon Sensor


Hi! Thank you for checking out my profile here.

I try to shoot photos almost every day. I like to shoot landscapes, plants, insects, and models (mostly girls about 18-25 years old), and various weird stuff, like lights, shells, bubbles, water on windows, etc. I shoot with a variety of cameras and lenses, but I am partial to the new Sony cameras and Sigma, Sony/Zeiss, and Nikon lenses right now.

I have photos posted in many places, so Google me for more!

I Now Shoot Exclusively A Foveon Sensor

Sorry I made no blog entries in 2013. I think I forgot about this blog. Anyway, I am now shooting with my old Sigma SD14, after trying the Sony A55 for a while. I sold that camera and still have a couple of lenses for it. I plan to sell one of the lenses and get a different one when I get a Sony A65 . . . at some point. Since I'm shooting exclusively with my Sigma SD14, I am learning more and more about it and the processing of raw files from it. The day before yesterday I shot a photo that had blown highlights in in part of it. I found the highlights looked terrible in the raw file, and I had a very difficult time trying to get rid of them. I never really got a good result using SPP (Sigma Photo Pro), even after consulting the experts in the DPreview Sigma Talk forum (and I tried a lot of stuff, all controls, even the fringe adjustment tool, exporting in 16 bit tiff to edit in another program, etc.), so I just used the embedded .jpg file, which looked great. (The Sigma SD14 raw files have full resolution .jpg files embedded in them.) I don't know how, but the SD14 does some kind of magic with photos that have blown highlights. I wonder if an older version of SPP would work better for me, because my camera is so old.
