GAS GUY,

It depends on what you want to do with the program.

I think photoshop is much harder to learn and only necessary for advanced photo manipulations. Lightroom is user friendly and designed for photography. It is very powerful. I would recommend you download a free trial of each to play around with.

I'm not talking about the original Photoshop.

I'm specifically talking about the "Elements" version of photo shop which seems to be alot more user friendly than the other which is aimed at Professionals.

It's been a while since I shopped for them and did my research. At the time, I chose lightroom primarily because it helps with organization and archiving your photos. It has basic adjustments that meet 95% of my needs. When I want to use the advanced tools I use a free program like gimp.

Thanks Dave for the great topic.
And others for your contributions.

For the camera, I am currently using Sony Alpha A37, it's quite compact mirror-less DSLR and it really make me happy with carrying along my trip and its picture quality.
I am thinking of getting another camera which is compact Point and Shot camera. And it must be waterproof. I feel so sorry when not be able to take pix during riding in the rain. There are lots of great scenes I 've lost during the trips.
Any recommendation for that camera? I was eyeing the Lumix DMC TS5.

You need a GoPro if you want a reliable waterproof camera. They not only do movies, they do stillies too!

I have two GoPro and one Contour. I don't like their picture quality against a real camera.

Any other moving shooters have anything to add???

To many of my US friends, taking pix while riding is something really strange. I don't know if that because of safety or what, but buddies looked at me and felt very strange

I was doing that for years, starting with P'nS camera then the DSLR.



And there are some products:

Nice shots while rolling. I take about 90 % of my pics while rolling. You can always crop to adjust tp what you wanted.

To be honest, I do appreciate fine photography in ride reports. I love a good story and those epic rides. That said, I appreciate the first timer, the guy/gal who is not afraid to post up a ride report along side of Metaljockey. The ride report with someone's first bike and a trip to some state park. It's all part of the Awakening. The discovery of motos and motojournalism.

Probably the best thing you are saying and has been said by Antontrax and others, is just use whatever camera you have and think about how you point it and how you set it. The key thing to keep pushing is to keep encouraging folks just to take the pics and post them up, I wish they knew how much we (or at least I) appreciate their efforts and their get-off-your-ass-and-get-out-there chutzpah.

Another thing: in the end, ride reports aren't really for other people. They all fade away. The cool thing is that you can go back and re-read them, and realize how much you've grown. To do a ride report, you have to travel. And in the end, those are the days you remember.
Weird to be reading a thread to learn more and see yourself referenced...

I am getting more and more familiar with Light room, as recommended by Dave6253.
And I think I would get the Tough TG-3 as my additional action camera.
