It's deeeeeep..
 
The final +Tips from the Top Floor of the season is available now. Have a listen.
In this last episode of the year, Chris will touch on Deep Sky Photography vs. Nightscapes (and why he might have used that term slightly wrong). There are a few questions about zones (is it really the holy grail of exposure?) and Chris interviews Sina Farhat from Gothenborg, Sweden, who tells us about his method … Continue reading tfttf633 – Nightscapes vs Deep Skies

I repeat: in some ways, writing "1 hour 1000 pics" was a mistake, I should've started at a much deeper level http://tfttf.com/653 #tfttf
Chris talks about building a pile of digital guilt that we build by delaying decisions in photography to the post processing phase. Not only does that move the issue from the front to the back of the workflow (and yes, … Continue reading →

It's true: by avoiding risk in photography, you're creating a huge pile of guilt: http://tfttf.com/653 #tfttf

Sooner or later it’s time to say goodbye to old friends. This is about my good old 2007 Mac Pro It has served me incredibly well for over seven years. It only needed two upgrades during that time: one to bring the original 4G...

Mine is a 2010 but I still have a long list of upgrades before I switch to a new computer. Need to swap out all 6 HDDs yes all six(removed the two optical drive and replaced them with HDDs). Swap those out with 6x6TB HDDs. Putin a PCIE SSD. Put in a ATI R9 290x graphics Card. Then grab one of Dells 4K screens. I already hacked the firmware to put in the 6 core Xeons (X5690), need to pick 2 of those up. Then I need to upgrade the RAM to 265GBs thats probably the last one so I can wait for the prices to drop on the 32GB DIMMs. Oh and add a USB 3.1 PCIe card to it. Then I can finally stick my uber high res panoramas with it.... Plus I can run Yosemite just fine.

Might seem like a pricey list of upgrades but the part for older computer get cheaper with the age of the machine, there is a cross over though where the machine is so old the parts get more expensive as they become harder to find.

It's easy to avoid risk in photography - unfortunately it has the potential to hurt you. http://tfttf.com/653 #tfttf

the show about all things photography
Introduction
This is the show about all things photography. It's also my baby, the glue that holds all my other projects together and the thing that I've been doing since early 2005!

It's the world's longest running photo podcast and I'm darn proud of it!
