After I posted the last post, I thought I would expand on some areas that I find intriguing. I am not huge into post processing of images. My goal is to get as close to what I want in camera and do minor tweaking on the computer. The main reason for a computer upgrade is to more quickly process raw files and convert them to the necessary output type.
I started shooting and stitching panorama shots with the point and shoot camera. With a new computer and software along with the new camera, panorama stitching is an area that I would like to continue improving.
Along with panorama stitching is what is known as High Dynamic Range Imaging [HDRI]. I was unaware of HDRI until after I upgraded to the Digital Single Lens Reflex [DSLR]. However, now that I am aware, this is something that I would like explore. My camera has an automatic mode, however, with better software I will able to make more of the processing decisions. Also, less data will be lost in the process resulting in a better image.
