Doug Stockdale's Singular Images

Spotting prints

Filed under: Uncategorized — Doug Stockdale @ 7:41 pm

Odd, I can have no quams about spending an hour or two spotting a print, but I look for every excuse in the book to avoid manualing loading data in a spreadsheet. Both are vary repitious tasks, one I find very boring and the other almost a zen like delight.

I know that it is probably a lot to do with my own attitude & perception. Spotting for me is enjoyable, Out dust spot, Out! And the results are a nice, clean photograph, which I will enjoy even more with the spots be-gone applied.

The other is work, even when I chart the data into some interestng graphs and create some interesting technical “stories”. I suppose that I would rather being spotting images and I now have to enter data, not spot photographs. Sigh.

Back to entering data again.

Best regards, Doug

  1. I, too, am interested in this quirk. Two tasks can be so similar in basic nature, yet I will find one “zen-like”, as you said, and the other loathesome. Personally, getting rid of the those nasty dust spots does’t make it to my zen category, but it’s very personal isn’t it. I hope this self-cleaning sensor for the 40D delivers on the hype. As one who has been chicken about cleaning a sensor, I can say this feature is made for people like me.
