  • You could try putting a translucent white piece of plastic over the tablet to diffuse the light so you won't be able to see the pixels. The plastic needs to be smooth so a texture won't show up in ...
  • I think darkening the sunlit grassy spot a bit prevents it from competing with the figure. I see what you mean about that making the image a bit dull, so I also adjusted the Lights and Shadows a ...
  • It looks like the sails were white, so you could use them to set the white balance when you process the image by clicking the white balance eye dropper on them (although if the sails were actually ...
  • I like the second picture a lot, but I think it suffers from the same problem as the first picture: there are two points in the picture that attract the viewer's attention, so they are in conflict ...
  • You might try darkening that bright spot right in the middle of the picture just a bit because it's somewhat distracting. If I put my finger over that spot I think the picture looks better. But ...
  • All cameras work pretty much the same way, just like all cars work pretty much the same way. The experience you gain from one brand will be applicable to all brands. The details of how you access ...
  • It looks like you found a solution, but I wonder if this might have been an alternative way of doing it: Restore all the files to your hard drive, including the ones you no longer want. Start ...
  • Do you have Live View Boost turned on? With the large area of black sky that could cause the camera to brighten the viewfinder and LCD image to the point where the moon will be blown out, even ...
  • I've never tried one of those myself, but from what I've read they're fraught with problems.
  • My understanding is that this won't work, for two reasons. First, HDMI is for viewing video on a screen. It can't be used to transfer files that you want to save and edit. Second, the HDMI port on ...
  • Thanks for posting those memories. An internet search turned up a bit of information about family pictures on postcards: "Postcards offered a new card format for photographic portraits in the early ...
  • If you're shooting at maximum aperture, every part of the lens contributes to every part of the picture. The size of the sensor doesn't matter. If you stop down the aperture, then the peripheral ...
  • That's the way most photos have always been. How many snapshot prints were looked at more than once before being stuffed in a box and eventually lost or thrown out?
  • Most people just want to take snapshots, and for that purpose a phone camera is perfect. It's especially convenient because most people have a phone with them all the time, so they don't have to ...
  • If you own a standalone copy of Lightroom, upgrading to any later standalone version costs $79. Of course you get to decide when and if to upgrade, so you can skip a generation (or more) if you want.
  • A couple of ideas: Do the images look OK on the back of the camera? If so you could try transferring them to your computer again with a different card reader or by connecting your camera to your ...
  • In bright sunlight you can use the sunny 16 rule of thumb to calculate the approximate exposure settings. This rule says that if the shutter speed is equal to the reciprocal of the ISO, then the ...
  • Dust on a lens won't be visible in your pictures. It can reduce the contrast of your pictures a bit, but it would take a huge amount of dust for that effect to be noticeable. if you can see ...
  • Doesn't "the industry" make the cameras that are inside smartphones?
  • I have a feeling the attention might just encourage more people to do stupid things.
