  • Oh, these were long exposures... they aren't 1/25 or something. It was a 25 second long exposure. The point was to have it set at a long exposure. I'm familiar that a certain focal length should ...
  • A gray card, eh? I will have to invest in either money (or time for a DIY) for a gray card. Thank you for clarifying how to further improve white balance :D
  • Where do you live??? B&H sells a D7000 for $600 and lower. Do you live outside the Continental United States? Either you're confused for a D7100, you live outside the US, or you're being ripped off. ...
  • Replied in Learning LR
    I will have to experiment with Lightroom a lot more. Besides the website that you linked to, are there any guides that can help with some useful keyboard shortcuts or other editing tips and tricks?
  • There was no tripod when shooting these. I was traveling light and I didn't want to carry a tripod at this time. Either it was camera shake or the scene was not in focus as the reason to why the ...
  • Can you please be specific about the white balance? I know it's off, but can you please tell me in a way that you would fix it? Not to offend you, but this is very vague. ): Thank you.
  • Well that boosted my confidence of handheld shooting :D I will have to experiment more with the histogram and PP. Any ways to learn how to use the histogram efficiently? Thank you!
  • Though small, still appreciate <3 Thanks for the feedback!
  • No VR. And also, no tripod at the time. This was shot with the camera just on the ground. I knew I was gonna get some severe focusing and sharpness issues, but I just wanted to experiment with ...
  • I'm aware that the background wasn't the best. Still, I like the feedback! If lighting is poor, would I essentially have to rely on post-processing for this? Focusing was tough because I actually ...
  • Thank you! I feel like there's still ways to improve, but I like the fact that I seem to be on the right track. The flower one was just a random shot at the front yard just for the heck of it. I ...
  • The filter that I used on the lens is not the greatest. I was actually just borrowing a friends, but I know that it's not spectacular. But you get what you paid for. (Think he paid like only $20 ...
  • Created discussions Would Appreciate some Critique
    So I still consider myself new to photography and editing, and am constantly trying ways to improve both skill and creativity. As such, when I have the opportunity, I try to take some photos ...
  • Forgot to add, also consider Photoshop elements, if you can somehow try to find a free trial. It should cover basic essentials to what Photoshop CC/CS6 does.
  • Jumping on the Lightroom 5 bandwagon. It covers a lot of editing things that you may need. Lens corrections, color aberration, etc, it does a lot for me and it often saves my bacon for older ...
  • I really don't know that much about Pentax, as you can tell. Regardleess, it's still a pretty good option and a good bang for the buck. I would still consider the Pentax in this price range, and ...
  • I might be wrong, but I believe it is essentially having a higher resolution image and scaling it down to your display resolution/print/etc. Downsampling usually makes an image sharper and ...
  • Have you considered Canon's offerings? The Rebel series (or 550~700D series in other places) are fairly similar. I believe a lot of it depends on the lenses that you purchase. In my opinion, it's ...
  • Here's some scenarios that come to mind. -Long exposure shooting (ex. Waterfalls, landscapes, using ND filters, etc) -Low light? Though that can go along with long exposure shooting. This might ...
  • This lens is, in my opinion, nothing special. With superzooms come small maximum apertures. I personally don't like shooting with a MAXIMUM aperture of f3.5-f6.3. It doesn't give the most creative ...
