I tweaked the colour — to remove the green tint — as recommended by the demanding viewers of this free blog.

I’m quickly learning how to process Sigma DP3 Merrill files.

For example, I’m constantly resisting the temptation to apply sharpening, since the images have an abundance of sharpness and micro-contrast (two qualities that are not necessarily flattering for portraits).

Yet, this particular image proves one thing:  it is possible to post-process DP3 files to produce a sharp and smooth portrait.

Oh, and the tonality possible with the Foveon sensor… wow.

Sigma DP3 Merrrill:  1/15 sec (hand-held, but braced), f/2.8, ISO 200.

This literally represents Test Shot #1 from my Sigma DP3 Merrill.

It arrived yesterday.

I charged the battery up, and fired some shots without even glancing at the manual or camera settings.

I’ve already decided whether I like the DP3.

(I do)
