One from the CJ archive. This retouch was a multi-element composite from @phaseone raw captures by Christopher M. Lynch. Many of hand painted elements in this one. Nothing but Adobe Photoshop, and a brief love affair with rockets.

I caught up with old friend and top shelf digital tech Joseph Borduin this afternoon. We ran some Photoshop performance tests on his new 8-core Mac Pro, to which we found some very smooth large brush performance. I also got a tour of the new (north lit) daylight photo studio which had all kinds of lighting possibilities with beautiful angled overhead window light. Check it out! http://highlight-studios.com/

“Electric lights are a convenience, but theyare used, I believe, at the expense of thatsimple three-dimensional clarity, that absolute existence that a subject has standing before a camera in a north-light studio.”

EIZO Updates Its Flagship ColorEdge Monitors with New 27" Models | EIZO

Eizo just announced their new flagship graphics and photography monitor the CG 277, 99% of Adobe RGB, made possible with the new LED backlight. What I hear from the EIZO reps is that they are making a migration over to the LED technology. Hopefully this will make the CG lines color even more accurate at off angles for art direction. http://www.eizo.com/na/press/releases/htmls/cg277_cx271.html

EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) today released the 27-inch ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 color management monitors.

IQ2 series digital backs | Specifications

On Hasselblad's heels Phase One announced today their CMOS digital back the IQ250. The features sound exciting on paper, ISO 100-6400, One-hour Long Exposures, Finally!! faster Live view, Built in Wifi geotagging. It's disappointing that non of the cmos backs made it full frame and cap off at 50megapixels. http://www.phaseone.com/en/Camera-Systems/IQ2-Series/IQ2-Specifications.aspx

Compare specifications for each IQ2 digital back. The IQ280 features 80 megapixel captures, The IQ260 offers one hour long exposures, the IQ260 Achromatic is for pure black and white imagery and the IQ250 has the widest usable ISO range of any medium-format camera system.

At this point I have retouched a number of projects shot by photographers working with the Nikon D800 and D800E and I have to say, I'm really surprised and impressed with the color fidelity. It's very easy to process, it has tons of dynamic range, noiseless shadows and the skin tones I'm able to pull out of it are almost effortless compared to wrangling a canon file. That said, I'd still prefer a RAW capture from a Phase or Leaf back over the D800 for color. But they definitely set the bar at an all new high for DSLRs.

Retouching for Timberland today. Their new line is looking great! The quality of their shoes has gone way up since they moved production back to the US.

Voigtländer 40mm f/2 SL-II

I was taking a walk in the neighborhood and I bumped into my old friend, not to mention amazing travel and lifestyle photographer Michael Grimm. He was raving about this Voigtlander 40mm pancake lens he had on his canon the f/2 SL-II. The focus ring moved like a knife through butter, it was beautiful.

Mercury Accelsior SSD an impressive PCIe card upgrade for Mac Pro | Macworld

Look what I found...! I just got off the phone with the guys as OWC and They've produced an PCIe equivalent to an SSD. That means that you can 2 to 3 times the speed of an normal SSD. Were talking 800mb/s and you now have an extra extra drive bay for more storage! Check out these benchmarks .http://www.macworld.com/article/1166853/mercury_accelsior_ssd_an_impressive_pcie_card_upgrade_for_mac_pro.html

The Mercury Accelsior PCE Express SSD will certainly boost the performance of your Mac Pro, especially when it comes to booting, and processes such as rendering audio/video files.
