On What Focal Length Do I Need for a Particular Shot? article (11 comments in total)

So far I have used an old slide-film frame to find proper composition with ease, but I have never heard that you can use your arms to measure focal lengths: you are always carrying this awesome tool with you and it's really easy to use ;)

Thank you so much WilbaW!

Dpreviewmember: Great photo !
Awesome composition and lighting
Is it HDR post-processed ? or just minor retouching ?
What camera modes did you use ?

And thank you for your encouraging words :)

HS20 is a fine cam and I'm glad that you have seen the potential it has to offer. I've been using mine from may 2011 =^.^=

I usually tend to downscale all of my shots to 1600px from the widest side of the picture. When you compare the quality of 8MP vs 16MP downscaled to 1600px, there's not much differences. I think it's a matter of taste which one to use. In my use 16MP seems to give little more flexibility with cropping - thought I use always denoise and sharpening filters in the post process procedure. As a conclution: what comes for OOC (out of camera) shots, I prefer 8MP but with cropping and PP I use 16MP.

With the fly macro photo I didn't use DR (DR was on 100%). I just fine-tuned some dynamics via curves and levels. And I used +4 Close-up lens/filter by Marumi (costs about 18€ / 24USD). Here's a screen-capture of the settings (with the original frame) I had in that shot:

My method with fly pic was not to let the HS20 process the jpg file with sharpens or NR - I did them afterwords.

Thank you for your comment =^.^=

The picture is a single frame shot (no HDR used). And the final pic is approx 1/3 crop from the original image. What comes for PP I used "Bleach bypass" film simulation adding dark brown colour cast, vignetting and saturation for cyan colour channel. I also shifted levels & contrast.

I shot the picture in [P] mode using following settings:
Metering mode: Multi. Image size: Large. Image quality: Fine. Sharpening: Normal. Noise: Low. WB: Auto. And if I remember correctly I used Astia film simulation.
