Before I get started on the blog, here is an update about my health. I have been home from the rehab, and I have had home health nurses, occupational therapist, and physical therapy working with me. I have us set of exercises that I have to do, and my strength is getting better. Yesterday the home health people discharged me but will return if things go downhill with my health. Well, I have been working on the older images and processing with up to date software.
I am viewing images that I took on a trip to Maine, pictures that I took at Quoddy Neck State Park. There was a series that I shot with my was using my Nikon D3S which is a full-frame camera, and a Tokina AT-X 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 DX Fisheye manufactured for the AP-C cameras. I turned off the Auto DX crop and selected the FX mode. The image specifications were 10 mm, 1/6, F/9.5, and ISO 200. I used a tripod. At 10 mm the barrel of the lens was included in the picture. If I increased from 10 mm to 17 mm, it did not include the barrel. The barrel of the lens became the frame for the image. It was interesting how different pictures how the shape of the frame changed when I selected the Tokina lens in the lens profile.
For processing’s these images, I utilized the new Topaz AI plug-ins, Adjust AI, DeNoise AI, and Sharpen AI.
