The Eyes DON’T Have It.


Ok, so there’s nothing exciting about this image. I posted it simply to make a point. While tinkering it in LightRoom, I became aware of just how much the camera can actually see. When I was shooting this photograph, I never saw the stars. Upon uploading the picture to my computer, I became aware of them. Initially I thought that they were ‘hot pixels’. Nope. Just stars. It is truly amazing to me how much the camera can actually ‘see’. It puts a whole new spin on the saying, “If you blink, you missed it.”

While out yesterday, I took a picture of an old building. Once I loaded the photo on the computer, again, I became aware of what the camera can actually see and was again, astounded. When I would zoom into the photo, I see what was in the windows. I could see the chipped paint on the door hinges, and a light hanging from the ceiling. I didn’t notice these things when I was taking the picture.

The more I learn, the more excited I get.

  1. Isn't it great to see things in pictures you didn't notice when you took the shot? Pretty amazing to see how much detail can be resolved with current camera technology 🙂
