Front yard on hazy morning

Jet lag woke me up again at 3AM so I watched the Adobe Lightroom stuff on Lynda. I learned how to control more things in post-processing so I went out into the foggy and hazy sunrise to take some photos in the yard to play with in Lightroom. I still have a lot to learn, but I think I have a better handle on how to deal with overcast lighting... Which is good since it's rainy season in Japan right now and overcast a lot.

I also learned how to fix chromatic aberration which I used today on one of the images.

I thought about whether I should go back to a more journal-like form for my blog or start writing more stuff on Flickr. I seem to be spending more time responding to comments on Flickr these days than on this blog. I suppose my online presence needs an overhaul.

Did you notice that Apple added RAW support for Leica M8 in the MacOS X 10.4.10 update?

Yes I did!

Great news, but I'm already hooked on Lightroom.

I think the "chromatic aberration" happens a lot when you use a cheap lens or camera. I think it's like phase dispersion or group delay distortion, generally occurred in wave propagation.

Hey Joi, great photo. It prompted me to spend about an hour yesterday looking through all your photos on Flikr. I found some real gems! My favourite is of course your before-and-after self portrait. It's such a great inspiration.

Are you coming to the CCC camp in Germany next month? There will be so many wonderful photo oportunities there. Hope you can make it. (Please tell Fumi Yamazaki she should go as well!)

Take care,
Karamoon

Ah! Typo in my url in post number 4. Clicking on "Karamoon" will take you to one of those nasty typo-catching spam sites! It should be http://snackfanjapan.blogspot.com

Thanks! I really wanted to go to CC camp, but I don't think I can make it.

You could post some information about internet ventures in Japan. There are few information about web 2.0 initiatives in Japan.

I fully agree with your insightful perspective, actually there is a similar thread at Frontier Blog
