Poor play on words, but that’s how I feel. Like a moron. I have spent the good part of 2 years in Lightroom without knowing I was doing it all wrong. Without knowing there was a better way.
Thanks to Christian (cbsva) who pointed me to A77 and A900 profiles made in the community, which seem to finally represent what I have been trying to get from my shooting this whole time, I now have approximately 60,000 shots to look through and try this on. I probably won’t go that far, but I will definitely go back to those ones where the color just didn’t seem right.
I found 2 sites with profiles I will be looking at. The first one is http://www.piraccini.net/2011/02/profili-colore-sony-a900-per-adobe-lr.html which has the A77, A900 and many other Sony/Minolta bodies.
Here is an example of one of the profiles on my A77
Even with the miniature representation, you can see a marked difference in greens and oranges.
The second site is: http://www.nibdata.com/imprescindibles.html which has a A900 profile.
Here is an example of their vivid A900 profile.
So now you know what I’ll be doing in my free time…
