About Critical Focus

4 days 12 hours ago #716371 by Nikon Shooter
That came up in the master class today. Just like many other things
that will turn an image into a super duper image that are way easier
to tweak down than force in PP.  

Critical focus is a desirable feature that has less to do with the gear
but more with the combos are fine tuned to work well together.

These screenshots examples are published at 72 ppi… imagine when
at 300 ppi!

G'day NS

Looking at these wonderful images does confirm to me the value that you and other professionals receive from excellent equipment, and is one of the (many?) things that distinguishes we 'hobby' photographers from the 'commercial' photographers of this world.  I commend you for your work and the quality of your imagery - both the creative aspects and then the follow-up technical aspects, which are all on show with your images

When I first started work - early 60s in a factory in Melbourne AUs, one of the messages I was given was to "always buy the best you can afford - and always produce the best work you are capable of".  This I have striven to do ever since then, and looking at your work, it seems that you had a similar 'task-master' as I did.

So- photographically - the best I can afford is a $1000 consumer-level camera, and you provide me with the wonderful visions from your kit, probably at 10x my 'poor little camera' comes to. It is beaut to be able to see the differences, but to also recognise 'real quality' when one sees it
