ALL I NEED A FLOORBOARD AN’ A WOODEN SHOE

Been awhile since I did a before and after demonstrating post-processing differences. These are older pics taken with a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens which is the least expensive prime lens you can buy at approx $100 as opposed to the L series 50mm at $1,200. I’m more than willing to pocket the extra $1100 and go against the pricier lens any day…providing I can use my secret post-processing techniques. That should upset some folks but I can say stuff like that since they don’t have a decade of Photoshop retouching under their belts…just money. Do I want to get into a “in-camera vs. post-processing” debate? No. I’d rather debate why some photographers think it’s not their job to post process images. Now that I’ve sufficiently upset people…

Pic one is straight from the camera without a single key stroke of post processing. Pic two with post processing and where I like to spend my time. I know pic two is not for everyone but I don’t take pics for everyone…just me cause all I need a floorboard an’ a wooden shoe.

  1. Dude, pic 2 looks so much better!
    About those lenses…. Those L series do make a huge difference. Give ’em a try if you get a chance. BUT, like you say, the f1.8 cheapo lens works great. I use it also, because I think it’s retarded to pay 1600 bucks (not 1200) for an f1.2… Maybe I’ll go for the $ 369,- f1.4 some day…
    And yes, I wish I had your Photoshop skills……………………………
    Hope the wife’s doing better…
    C-ya soon,

    As for wooden shoes… I doubt they make 16hp, but I can send you a pair if you wanna try 😉

    Nice pics as usual..
    I like the second pic better too, although Im no judge as I only edit in IPhoto. I agree with shooting for yourself and not worrying what anybody thinks. At the moment Im loving my 70-200 2.8 and Im breaking away from the wide style, 200mm is where its at… but hey that’s just me 🙂 I still love the 50mm 1.4.

    Whoah! I didn’t realize the f1.2 was that much!

    Matt – very interesting as I see this happening more and more. Always loved your 50mm work!
