Dividends are $1,174 this year which means I’m buying the new Sony Nex5! I’ve had my eye on this camera for rong time! But can I also just take a second bitch that quite a few people are complaining how that’s hardly anything? You’re receiving over a grand for nothing and yet still have the audacity to complain. Be thankful.
This image employs a number of early photographic techniques. First, there is the perspective control that ensures the vertical lines are correct. Next is the quality of light used in this image. It closely approximates the sensitivity of orthochromatic film. Then there is the resolution of the final image. Using a simple 14.4mpixel sensor, I created an image that is very high resolution (8000+ pixels in the long dimension). An archival digital print is indistinguishable from a fine platinum contact print up to 16x20inches in size!
Our adventure in the Canadian Rockies started with an overnight layover in Calgary. Welcome to the Calgary Stampede. Bars opened at 8AM, oil executives in boots downed shots of tequila with lunch, and hucksters peddled cowboy hats on street corners like meth dealers in the Mission District.
