Dave the Ginger Alhambra Cat

Dave the Cat

I’ve just received an e-mail from the guys at Fujifilm to say that my camera has been fixed and is now on its way back to me. Yay! That was quick, and I can’t wait to get it back. I’ve been a bit lost without my camera. Now to locate my errant cat Gwynnie. New home, new territory and first time out of the house after recovering from weeks of illness. I hope she hasn’t got lost! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        1. I have no clue. You could be right though, maybe she’s making her way back there. She has always been very good at adapting to new places though. I’ve moved four times since I’ve had her.


    1. Some of that is just that I don’t tweak the contrast and brightness to match the original shots. On the camera it never looks quite as dark. But thank you, it’s nice to know I have a style ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. You should try shooting in “raw.” It should look the same on the camera and the computer. You’ll need software to process the raw, however, and it takes a lot more file space (which is why I don’t bother). I tweak mine in Picasa to get them back to the original image. Computers alter the image for some reason.


      2. I don’t know much about it but it seems that with RAW you’ll always have the original files, so if you goof you can blow it away and start afresh.
        As for your style I’ve wondered if you are HDR in B&W; whateverโ€”it’s style and it’s distinctive.

        I still use iPhoto and when I want to fiddle a shot I just duplicate it first then play with the dupe. I still have to learn the PE The Spouse bought me (for Christmas last, would you believe?). It’s a case of don’t wait up …

        1. I shall definitely have to look into playing with RAW. I know both you and Bill have spoken to me about it before. But like you, it can take me a while to get around to things…

          As for my distinctive black and white style, I tend to present as was shot without post processing fiddling. The odd shot I have used HDR, or enhanced in some other way, and where I have I’ll mention it in the tags at the bottom of the post. Generally though, I don’t like to tamper too much, unless I’m just letting lose and trying to make a shot look purposely ‘artistic’.


  1. Your Gavatar image comes up on my screen (and with these ancient Mk 1 eyeballs) as a deranged rabbit … I had to blow it up to see it for what it is. I like it~!


Speak now, or forever hold your piece. (Ew)
