Photo Upgrade

Click to enlarge
A couple of months ago, I purchased a better digital camera that allows larger files. I finally joined the semi-modern age (I did buy it used at a pawn shop.....)
So, I'm currently updating some of my gun pics. Here's an example.

Great Xavier.
Now I just drooled on my keyboard...

Congrats on your new acquisition, anyway.

Now you need to take that image, do a white balance compensation and a 20% unsharp mask on it.

If you don't have white balance compensation in your editor, up the saturation by 15%, and bump the lightness by 5%... maybe a 10% contrast bump....

The problem with good digital cameras, is that they produce a neutral image. That neutral image requires you to either have correct lighting in the first place; or to correct for color, brightness, contrast, and sharpness (all of which would otherwise be enhanced by lighting), when photographed under normal light.

If you don't your photos will look somewhat washed out, with bluish, reddish, or greenish tones depending on the lighting at the time.

I LURVE those grips on the left. Nice. Congrats on the new camera.

Or, if you want to take really great images without spending lots of time in Photoshop, just tweak the camera settings while making exposures!

I prefer shooting to editing...

Glad to see that you now have a digital camera. Keep those 1911 coming.
Here is a link you might find of interest. It appears that the federal government doesn't really want our help when there is a disaster.
