As a pretty regular user of Aperture, seeing it available for almost a third of what it was gives me mixed feelings. It's mostly good. I've had it for a while, but I'd hate to be the guy that bought it for $200 yesterday.Read More
Turns out I jumped the gun. Still no RAW support for the GF1. Bummer. Don't get me wrong, there's a bunch of updates and some interesting technology in the update. Ultimately well worth the upgrade cost. But just the one thing I'm really jonesing for. So here's the learning Lightroom I guess.
So, it's not ground breaking stuff here. None at all really. But some Fridays, you can't help but state the obvious: The Stacks feature in Aperture kicks ass. Really. Sure it's pretty obvious in the motorsports stuff. Knowing that I can rattle off a long sequence of shots, turn on the auto-stack feature when I import and then quickly scan the sequence for which image captures the best moment. But I've also been using it for dealing with bracketed exposures on some architectural work I've been doing. Get the timing right on import and you have all your bracketed frames from each shot, nicely organized to edit or to create into an HDR.
Maybe this'll be part of a new tradition? Obvious Fridays.
(And the photo? Yeah. That's from some work I shot while at Duke University Press for their Journals Ad Catalog.)
