Happy New Year, and I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday!
We’ve been busy working on various things ourselves, including migrating RawPedia to a new server as well as building a replacement raw sample database/website to alleviate the problems that rawsamples.ch was having…
Yes, there really is art outside photography. :)
The history and evolution of painting has undergone a similar transformation as most things adapting to a digital age. As photographers, we adapted techniques and tools commonly used in the darkroom to software, and found new ways to extend what was possible to help us achieve a vision. Just as we tried to adapt skills to a new environment, so too did traditional artists, like painters.
Here in the U.S., we have a big holiday coming up this week: Thanksgiving. Serendipitously, this holiday also happens to fall when a few neat things are happening around the community, and what better time is there to recognize some folks and to give thanks of our own? No time like the present!
I realize that I’m a little late to this, but photographer João Almeida has created a wonderful set of film emulation presets for darktable that he uses in his own workflow for personal and commisioned work. Even more wonderful is that he has graciously released them for everyone to use.
I’ve been writing about high-quality photography workflows on my blog. However, I felt the community could use a good website dedicated to F/OSS photography that wasn’t just about me. (Well, mostly).
We have all of these amazing projects creating fantastic software, and we could use a place to help everyone realize their full potential (theirs and the software).
I am working hard to get various parts of the site up and running (as well as writing and editing new content).
I finally got an About Page setup to give you a little more information about the site and who’s involved.
I just got the basic framework for the blog posts set up. You can follow along the blog here to keep up with the site status.
I’ll be updating there as I build out more of the site. If you would like to contribute in any way, please feel free to reach out to me (I promise I don’t bite).
