wow, nikon is pretty smart, they announced their new D80 replacement model just one day after Canon announced the EOS 50D.

The most interested feature of this camera is that it is the first DSLR camera with a movie mode and a 72 thumbnail playback review. With a 12.3MP and ISO up to 6400, 4.5 FPS. It’s bound to give the 450D and 50D a tough fight for the consumer level DSLR.

Negative Clarity in lightroom

today while doing some editing work on the adobe lightroom, i discovered a really cool and fast short cut to smoothen skin or to give the picture some creamy effect,

the original function of the clarity in lightroom or adobe camera raw was to increase “Local Contrast Enhancement” . when toying around with it, i discovered that if you perform negative clarity on the photo, it will give a kind of smoothening or creamy effect, sort of like that soft focus filter.

see example below , a ring shot using 50mm
1. Negative clarity -90

2. No clarity adjustment
ring smooth
