Default "Optimize This: Bar Portrait"

Per Scott's request, here is the image from the "Field Portraits" thread. Here's the raw file. Note that it's a .tif so if clicking on the link just opens the thumbnail, try right-clicking then "save target as". Please notate the copyright.

Here's the quick C1 b/w version I did for the other thread, but don't feel restricted to b/w - I have printed a quite nice color version also. Aside from the high ISO, the shot is underexposed. Original background description below image.



After a long six hour studio shoot we all retreated to the lounge at a local hotel and partied til after midnight when this shot was taken. This is one of the models and the owner of the studio - I was sitting at another stool down the L shaped bar (drinking about my 10th beer). Lighting was actually very low - I took this with my 1D, ISO 1600 (and the noise shows), 1/60, f2.8, 70mm. Even so I had to pull another stop or more in CaptureOne. Processed b/w in C1 using the b/w-yellow filter profile.

Odd, I could swear I tested it. Here's the link again, maybe Asher can fix the original link.

Hi Don,

I repaired the first link, you didn't put in the url!!!! It downloads so slooow. 2.5 minutes on a cable modem!

Still, I get a 3.5 MB file. I don't see the option on the mac for "try right-clicking then "save target as" !

The file has two layers in preview. A top layer which has 288x192 pixels and a bottom black layer of unknown size.

In CS2 and in iViewmedia Pro the file opens up as 288x192 pixels, 162k the rest of the so called 3.7MB is missing. I've never seen this before. New file type of corrupt!

So what sort of demonic 3.7MB TIFF is this?

Asher

Asher,

It's not a TIF, it's a RAW from a 1D. So rename it "whatever.cr2" and open it with the raw converter of your choice.

Regards,

Stuart

Yes, it's a raw file, but I don't think it'll work to rename it .cr2. Any raw converter should open it fine although if your system isn't configured properly ACR may mis-detect it as a thumbnail only. At one time this was a known Adobe problem (they own the TIF format but didn't implement it to their own spec ;)) although they fixed it years ago - opens fine in ACR here with PS 7 or CS1.

Asher, afa download speed, the problem is probably on your end (or your provider's connection to Qwest). We normally have reasonable bandwidth available - should take only a minute or two.

Asher, could you also amend the title to "Optimize This: Bar Portrait"? Was up very late last night :)

Ok... Here are my takes.

Color


B&W


Base processing in Lightroom

Noise reduction, edge sharpening, B&W conversion, Ilford 100 film grain and Tone in PS
