Happy new week! Same setting as before, but this time with some audio impressions, recorded where the pictures were taken. :slight_smile: The birds were in full swing today.

Still messing around with portraits. Can’t decide which shadow I like better, outlining my head or not.

I like the second one better since nothing draws the attention away from the main component of your portrait (what an algorithmic way to say “face”). The shadow is like an optical echo to me which introduces another interesting but non-central component.

Dude, love the audio idea! Totally doing this the next time I have a worthy subject.

Just to be topical: make sure you present the pair as a NFT :wink:

Excellent, glad you like it! I think it might work even better for scenes in a city - or any place that sounds like something, really.

I think there was a Windows Phone app that paired a photo with audio.I thought about finding an iOS app to do it for my pond photo with audio of the frogs but got lazy and just posted a video, lol. The photo plus audio technique worked really well for me with some scenes in NYC and some at the beach.

Finally got a chance to mess around with the Sony again today. I dusted tantalus, but only noticed after the photos, that I missed the left inside surface… Anyway, something for @ant_pruitt and other whisky lovers.


Tantalus with 12 Yr. Glenfiddich in the left decanter and an empty one on the right. Sun shining in from behind.


The granite coaster with Capture One autocorrect and IQ Professor filter, for a richer orange tint.


The granite coaster with no adjustments, just the raw shot.


The tantalus plus 5 whisky bottles in their packaging.


I played around with this one in Affinity photo and adjusted the lighting on each bottle individually. I really like how the Glenfiddich seems to glow.


I just adjusted the white level on this one.


And, finally, a black and white filter from Capture One applied to another photo of the bottles.

All taken with my Sony A6000 with the 18-105mm Sony lens.

Yeah, I think Samsung does that too in their app (or at least used to). Sad thing is that these are not open formats afaik and thus pretty much useless to share. True though: technically, just make a video. But then, there is something special about audio with a still image. Don’t ask me what. Maybe the eye only gets a first clue and then the mind has to fill in from audio - maybe that’s exciting to the brain. Always fascinating that we think all day long with an organ we only understand to a certain degree, ourselves.

Magnolia tree. Looks lovely, but makes a real mess.

Sigh…we can’t grow them in Colorado…:cry:

I remember magnolias from living in Florida many years ago and yes, beautiful but messy. Many flowering trees are.
