Komodo tile choices..

Recommended Posts

Much better.

May I suggest about 4 pictures with only 2 rows or so per pic. That way the flash would hit them more or less the same. The rows on the sides are under lit and may not faithfully represent.

Come to Bali for a week of R&R

Much better.

That would be relevant only if we all had calibrated monitors..

Chances are good that most of us are seeing something just a little different regardless.. nature of the beast. And then if we take white point balance into consideration.. Argh it really gets frustrating. BTW I always shoot with a tripod using the timer and no flash to "attempt" to most accurately represent the different tiles colors..

But shots of the same cookers taken (with no flash) at different times of the day still look a lil' different..

Always best to fly here, pick out your Komodo and then go to Bali for a week of R&R before returning to the real world..

I meant the photos of the individual cookers that are used online.

Hi Dennis - Call me picky but I think you should replace the Matte Terra Cotta tile with a new sample tile. The one in the picture has a chip out of the top right corner - Just an 'fyi'! :wink:

to be used in house

Heh Heh - That's classic! :lol: Nah' date=' I know how picky Dennis is and I figured the little chip just got past his eagle eye! :D[/quote']

Actually that shot was taken to be used in house so my staff can easily see the tiles codes for ordering/discussion...

But it's doing it's job and a bit more now..

Dennis, if you shot the photos of the cookers in raw format and used a gray card, you could eliminate most of the color difference caused by different lighting at different times of the day. Also some cameras have a custom white balance setting that you can use to shoot a gray card and then apply that white balance setting to other photos you take in JPG.

I am not too sure, but, Drunk J has posted our KK in matte terracotta for reference and the white snow should be easy to balance on your monitor. Of course a Kodak 18 % grey card would be ideal.

Scouterpf ( and the snow is finally gone.)

I wasn't going to confuse Dennis by getting technical (whibal vs. gray), LOL! Actually, if Dennis will ship me a sheet of every tile color, I could take some photos for him using a softbox and raw and a whibal card. It would give me something to do between charcoal tests, lol!

Whizzy, you are a thoughtful man. Nuts, without question. And you have WAY too much time between charcoal tests, I think. But you're thoughtful! :wink:

Oh, Sanny! Don't you know the incredible stimulation and satisfacton to be had when setting up the lighting, tethering your camera to your laptop and shooting product shots? Ooh, it's sending shivers through me just thinking about it, LOL!

Alas, it's a pleasure that has been denied me all these years. A shame. Think what I've missed! lol
