  • Yes, I can confirm this is perfectly normal behaviour for the Tamron 90mm macro lens. Nothing wrong with the camera nor the lens. :o) Pretty funny really all the silly sausages jumping in to tell ...
  • I'm questioning some of your focussing decisions here... Try a flat brick wall at f/5.6 and make sure the camera is parallel to the wall. That should take care of any problems with technique. But! ...
  • 1. Rain. You are shooting through rain which blurs the shots somewhat. On the first example, there's a lot of reflections on the tiles and the diffraction caused by the water would also soften the ...
  • Yes, if I take a shot at f2.8, the image returns to being nice and bright. I have got a an "E" lens so I'll play with that. I don't mind the quirk so much as people telling me it's a fault with my ...
  • I was taking a shot indoors on a very dull day using only natural light and reflectors. The final shutter speed was 25 seconds and the aperture was f/16 at ISO100. Since I was using a tripod, I ...
  • As a woman, I find "art nudes" questionable. Both examples you give are extremely questionable. Ladies with "come hither" looks and vulnerable body poses may be considered "art" but they are ...
  • I'm sorry but this is nonsense. It's a newbie thing to say. Beginners are told to use Manual as a pedagogical strategy. So they get a better sense of how to manipulate their exposure parameters ...
  • In Manual Mode, there is no exposure compensation setting because you are, indeed, controlling the exposure manually. Exposure compensation is used when the camera is determining the exposure ...
  • Replied in Adobe
    Ther are different levels of updates. The basic version of the software you have is CC 2015. The updates you are receiving are minor so they don't alter the basic version number. Software ...
  • Getting a new camera isn't going to change your shutter speed. Exposure is determined by the amount of light you have falling on the scene. Increasing the shutter speed is something you can do now ...
  • I have the older Tokina 12-24 with a Nikon D7200. That's a nice price and it's certainly worth it. 12-24 is not bad for landscapes as having the 24 on the long end is quite handy and makes it less ...
  • Replied in Try this in PS
    A circular polariser is indeed useful. You just need to know the conditions when they will make a difference and when using them is pointless or counter productive. To remove reflections you need ...
  • Replied in Nikon d3300
    That effect where out of focus bright lights render as large round disks is not, strictly speaking, " bokeh". Originally bokeh referred to out of focus areas that were smooth and soft and dreamy ...
  • Polarising filters can cut the sun's glare bouncing off surfaces but are generally useless unless the sun is in a position where it produces that glare in the first place. So it depends on the ...
  • Thank you. That was based on a photograph and it's lots of fun to play around with the perspective and arrangements of the original objects to get something you like better without rearranging the ...
  • Replied in Art
    I find a lot of photographers are not visually literate an so they do fall back on the same old photographic cliches. And there is amongst some photographers hostility towards "art".  They prefer ...
  • I like cooking and gardening and have done many crafts over the years. I learnt photography during my art course many years ago. I like painting and drawing. Here is a link to some of my stuff: ...
  • we can argue endlessly about what's "correct" but the most important thing when setting up a formal printed document is that you must be consistent. How you set out the information is a question ...
  • I'm all for 55mm f/1.8. Otherwise it's a jumble of numbers and takes too much time for the reader to decipher. Of course, include the slash because it doesn't require that much effort and ...
  • You've spent far too much money for a first camera. You're not even sure if you want a cropped sensor camera and you've bought a top-of-the range crop sensor camera. Get something cheaper until ...
