  • Don't worry about it. I and others are laughing at the Keystone Cops of DPR Challenges trying to find cheats in the challenges. They whinge about members posting comments on entries before the ...
  • In my earlier post I gave a time break down for each type of edit which included digitally ironing out the wrinkles, which was the most time consuming edit, adding shadows and tonal adjustments. I ...
  • (1) For a given aperture and focal length, the larger the subject distance the deeper the DOF will be.
  • Replied in A "winner"...
    That applies to both entrants and hosts. Hosts setting unenforceable date restricted challenges in which only dumb entrants might get caught are taking challenges far too seriously and the "smart ...
  • I doubt you can automate for any significant benefit in your scenario. But having said that, as per my earlier reply it shouldn't take more than 5-10 mins max, 15 mins absolute max to go from ...

    When i first started out i too was a firm follower of the exposure triangle until i was made aware of what exposure really is - amount of light striking the sensor per unit area during a shutter ...

    Not true at all if you define exposure as the amount of light striking the sensor per unit area during a shutter activation. For example, for a given scene you set f/8, 1/200s. Then you can set ISO ...

    That's not quite correct. It's if you bend the rules and only if you get caught .
