  • Really helpful suggestions. Thank you friends!
  • Hi friends, Is there a YouTube channel (a book or any other resource) where a professional shows all post-processing workflow steps from start till the final product? There are certainly a lot ...
  • What are the techniques to apply finishing touches to images once they go through workflow steps like basic adjustments in ACR/Lightroom and localized adjustments in Photoshop using selections, ...
  • Replied in Not really ..
    I'm surprised there is not much online or on YouTube to get information about "Soft Contrast" technique. Or may be I don't know which keywords I should use to search for the information. It would ...
  • Replied in Or ..
    Any suggestion about which images I should apply the "Soft Contrast" effect to? And where I should avoid that effect? Can you suggest me tutorials so that I can learn the technique?
  • Thank you for the reply. Is there any way to get the effect in Photoshop? Can you suggest me some tutorials?
  • Hi friends, When I look at the images on websites like 500px, I always find them soft yet very sharp. They look very beautiful and don't feel harsh on your eyes. How to get this contrast which ...
  • General rule of shooting pictures hand-holding the camera is to have at the shutter speed at least 1/focal length. I don't think low shutter speed is the issue in the first picture unless you're ...
  • That makes sense. Thanks Confyushis. Your both answers are really helpful. Next time I'll make sure that I do the testing in good lighting conditions.
  • @darklamp and leno - I never mentioned manual focus in my current post. I'm not switching back and forth between auto-focus and manual focus. I did the whole test using auto-focus only. When I ...
  • Hi friends, I noticed that when I auto-focus through Live View the pictures are sharper than the auto-focused pictures through Viewfinder. I was wondering, why not to auto-focus through Viewfinder ...
  • I did use a tripod and self-timer during testing to avoid any kind of shake. But the argument of not having an adequate light during the test does make sense. It potentially might have affected ...
  • During my testing I noticed that the difference the sharpness of auto-focused and manually-focused images was more at f3.5 than it was at f16. So if I fine-tune the auto-focus at f3.5, would it ...
  • I've just one lens. So can't really determine whether it's an issue in the camera or in the lens or both. In the first test, I kept aperture constant at f8 and shot two pictures each at focal ...
  • Here I've posted images of my last testing. I kept focal length constant at 18mm and shot two pictures each at f3.5, f5.6, f8, f11, and f16. First picture at each aperture is shot with auto-focus ...
  • Does the auto-focus fine tune method work for a zoom lens? In my case, it's the Nikon 18-105 lens. Or is it independent of the focal length? I again did testing, but this time I kept focal length ...
  • Hi friends, I did some testing of auto-focus vs manual focus through LiveView. I setup my Nikon D7000 and Nikon 18-105 lens on a tripod. I turned VR off. I've a box with bold letters on it. I put ...
  • Replied in What camera ?
    Thank you for all for the responses. I shoot with Nikon D7000 and Nikon 18-105 kit lens. I'm still in a very early stage of DSLR photography. That was a lot of technical stuff :) I understood ...
  • Thanks Graham for the reply. Suppose a photographer has a good eyesight, does it mean he can always get perfect focus in manual focus? If a lens has front/back focus issues, it won't show that ...
  • Hi friends, We always hear about front or back focusing lenses and it happens even if we use only the center focus point. Does this behavior occur only in auto-focus or it can happen during manual ...
