A Walk in San Francisco

Canon 300D Version

field trip by Bettina & Uwe Steinmueller

San Francisco is a wonderful city to walk. We love to go to China Town and the Italian quarter "North Beach". Today we repeated our usual tour. We only used the Canon 300D (Digital Rebel) and a single zoom Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 for these shots. Some 300D users might find this lens heavy and expensive. Yes, it costs more than the Rebel itself but you get excellent image quality in exchange. We find the weight of the 24-70mm ok as we are used to carry a much heavier Canon 1Ds.

As raw converter we used this time only Capture One DSLR Rebel Edition with Magne Nilsen's new profiles. Photoshop CS was used for heavy perspective corrections . We also use the new PS CS Highlight/Shadow control on most pictures to add midtone contrast, open the shadows and toning down the highlights (we will be featuring this tool once our readers can get their own hands on PS CS).

Note: There is also a version that only uses the Sigma SD10 and a Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 lens.

Color makes a difference

We love these Stairs (China Town)

Colors: Black & Gray (this is a color photo!)

The most challenging photo was the last black in black shot. In reality the scene had a much more intense black.
