If you don't find anything particularly remarkable about this photo then take a closer look at the dynamic range. The chairs in the foreground are lit by direct sunlight. The gentleman diner on the right is seated inside the restaurant. The waiter, a dark-skinned African-American, is standing in the open shade of the entrance. All this was captured in one exposure and neither the highlights nor the shadows were lacking detail. Click to enlarge for a closer look. How did I do it? Guess away, but I won't be back to review any comments until Monday.
For most Americans Memorial Day weekend marks the official beginning of summer. Kids start looking forward to time off from school. Adults start looking forward to time off from work. Bloggers like me have little expectation that readers like you will be sitting at home waiting for a major post to appear. Still, because I normally post once a week and the time is neigh, I thought I'd post a little teaser just to tide you over until we all get back from the holiday mindset. I'm preparing a film review of a new summer blockbuster. You won't find it in a theater near you. You may, however, find it at your nearest pro camera shop. That's all I'll say for now. More later.
