Need help!!...big prints!!!
Hi there people...
Going to shoot a Love Story on sunday morning and the couple wants some of those photos to be printed 4', 5' or 6' for the wedding...first timer here!..
- Camera/equipment settings to do it the right way?...do I have to change the settings in my camera??...
- Will edit in PS5...
- Various locations, rain forrest, beach and a colonial house (Love my island Puerto Rico!)
- Any suggestions?
In any case this is relevant, the equipment I will use:
- Sony a580
- 70-200mm 2.8 G
- 50mm 1.7 Minolta
- 16-50 2.8
- Speedlites + softboxes + reflectors-- hide signature --
Old glass...timeless beauty (Minolta Lenses)
Pixel peepers will say that 16 MPx Sony a580 is not enough for 4' tall image. You definitely want to get every pixel count; this means use f/4 or smaller aperture. Add light as needed. To reduce DOF at smaller apertures like f/4 or f/5.6 use longer FL on your 70-200. Is a560 a cropped sensor? If it is, you may be able to get away with f/2.8 for sharpness requirements. Use lowest ISO that the existing light can permit.
If you have control of the environment try to reduce the fine detail that exists in the environment; this way on large printed image you don't see a square where eye expects to see a small flower; you see a gradient of squares where eye expects to see gradient of colors.
