Hi Simon

That's great - thanks for that info. I always like seeing behind the scenes images and how people work.

I recall at some stage you commented switching from ACR to CaptureOne - did you do that?
I use both but I continue to struggle to love CaptureOne (I am much faster with ACR and when under volume / time pressure find that easier).

Regards

Sam

Hello Sam,

Totally agree with you ARC is the boss. Capture One is such a dog to deal with. When shooting teethed I always use Nikon Camera Control 2 and Nikon ViewNX 2 as they arenít pretty but they are solid as a rock. The only time I use Capture One is when I need digital overlay and the minute I donít need it I switch back to the Nikon software.

My wish would be it Leaf capture was compatible with Nikon NEF files, loved that software for previewing when I had a Leaf Aptus 75.

Cheers

I actually prefer Capture one, not just for workflow, but more importantly color. Lightroom has a severe problem with warm tones, espically when you push an image, the colors completely fall apart in lightroom.

Funny you should say that :-) I don't like C1 skin colors at all. To me they are way too warm, which might work in sunnier climes, but with Pacific North West light it looks a bit odd. It is almost as if C1 wants to give people a tan.

The best skin colors I ever got were with a D3x and C1 using the linear profile.  I think that the use of the linear profile can make a big difference.  Other tone curves tend to cause "bunching" in the skin tones, something that is almost impossible to fix.  LR does not seem to have quite the same linearity in its "camera neutral" profile.  The "portrait" profiles in both C1 and LR, while doing less damage than the "standard" profiles, is far from ideal.

The image was produced 4 years ago - so it was nice to see that they were still putting it to good use in their most recent ads...

.. especial since they have now renewed the 3 year licence to use it  Smiley

I absolutely agree, the linear profile is the way to go. And yes, LR's linear is not exactly linear. My problem with C1 was a color shift towards "warm" in the skin tones (using a D800), which didn't entirely go away with linear processing. The latest profiles might be better, though.

And, in order not to take this thread all over the place, some recent portrait work.

Chris,

great photo, but there is really heavy pixilation on the right side of the frame. Is this the CCD vs CMOS look?

Cheesy

Hi Chris, could you please explain this...


.. because as you can see, according to this picture's file Camera Data, it says this was taken yesterday with a Sony ILCE-7R at 1/6 sec, f/9.0 using a 24mm lens - rather than with a IQ 260 back !!

And isn't 1/6 second in shutter blur territory for the A7r?

I still shoot with my beloved DCS760's in the studio today.
Perfect compromise between quality and file size for editorial work.
This was shot last year in London and the background shot in Bolivia
back in 2002!!.
It is a huge print being shown at Cannes this summer.

Ha!  We were moving so fast, I lost track of what camera that was shot with  (sleep deprivation).  I've been using both side by side and am really pleased with the Sony.  I don't know if I got a real gem out of the production line but I have never seen any blur (from shutter bounce), even when using my Leica-R 70-180.

Here's your IQ 260 shot...

And since you guys are getting all technical, check out this exercise from a few days ago.  IQ260 vs Portra 160... but which is which?

Film left, digi right.
Purely based on highlight behaviour (I am looking on an iPhone though)

The left one looks more like fruit, so I'd say the left one is the film.
