LDBphotos is a trial site setup by two amateur photographers who are married and retired. The images do not represent the work of either of us, we just choose the ones we like the most.
Our equipment consists of:
- Canon 70D DSLR
- Canon 550D DSLR (Japanese equivalent)
- Canon G15
- Canon lenses – 70-300mm, 35-105mm, 17-85mm, 10-22mm and 40mm
- Tamron 150-600mm lens
- Colormunki monitor and printer calibrator.
The use of Canon is driven more by earlier decisions when starting in digital photography and the investment in lenses, rather than any commitment or preference for Canon. The lenses are calibrated to the 70D using the AF micro-adjustment feature.
All images are taken in RAW and imported into Adobe Lightroom 6 where they are converted into DNG and processed. This processing includes the application of camera colour correction profiles prepared using X-Rite Colorchecker Passport and generic Adobe lens corrections.
Sometimes NIK software is used for particular effects, as is DxO Viewpoint for perspective correction.
