In 2010, shortly after its release, I bought Fujifilm’s first consumer 3D camera, the FinePix Real 3D W1. The camera is provided with two lenses and two image sensors, and therefore allows simultaneous capture of a left- and a right eye photo. It is fun to use, and the 3D effect can be very convincing. But unfortunately the display options for 3D images are quite limited, compared to normal 2D photographs.
A Somewhat Counter Intuitive Use of B&W in Color Photography
While working on a black and white project on lions, mentioned in previous posts, I decided to step up my skills in B&W processing of photographs, and started to work with onOne Perfect B&W, and Silver Efex Pro 2 from NIK Software.
One aspect of the life of cats, small and big ones alike, that I find fascinating is the brilliant way in which they are able to carry their young ones. Here are a few photos relating to that.
Recently, I have reviewed photos of lions that I have recorded in the Copenhagen Zoo during the latest decade, or so. Fairly early in the process, I decided to think of this as a black and white project, with the tentative title ‘Life of Lions’.
Sorting through 10 year old digital photographs, recorded with cameras having resolutions on the low side of current mobile phones, I’m reminded that camera hardware often doesn’t matter nearly as much as we tend to think. This guy was recorded in the Copenhagen Zoo in 2004 with a Nikon Coopix 5700 (5 MP), and ‘developed’ only today using Lightroom and OnOne Perfect B&W.
While cleaning out my hard-drive today, I came across some photographs of lions recorded in the Copenhagen Zoo almost 10 years ago, with a camera that had less resolution than most current mobile phones. Decided to try to tweak a couple of them in Lightroom – and boy, what a surprise that turned out to be… Maybe I should go lion hunting in my computer
