    So odd question here.

    I took a number of picture with my olympus evolt 510 with the intention of stitching them together for a pano. I stitched them together, and one of my friends noticed a random woman in the pictures had her nipples clearly visible through the clothing. And I'm not just talking about seeing the outline, I'm talking about really seeing them.

    It's not like she had holes there because she was wearing BOTH a sweater and a shirt.

    What caused my camera to have seeming xray vision? Is this a fluke thing? Has anyone ever had this happen before?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    This has to be THE most rediculous thread I've ever read since I came here.

    I am the life of the party, always... however, I do not come to Beyond the Basics to party... I come here to learn PHOTOGRAPHY. ;)

    Want to party, use the appropriate forum for it... please.

    Jerry's party-pooping aside, it was almost certainly a result of your flash. Party goers wouldn't have noticed this in ambient light. But the tabloids and celeb web sites regularly feature photos of celeb nipples that have been revealed from camera flash passing light through a dress and reflecting back out again.

    I'm not sure if I can post links to examples here without having a moderator smite me so I'll err on the side of caution. Without even trying, examples came up quickly for Jessica Simpson and Uma Thurman in Google.

    Must be hard when you know everything.

    In any case, it is the flash that did it. If you visit the Celebrity Gossip websites, you'll see tons of photos of celebs getting "caught" because they wore shear garments, and the cameras flash is able to illuminate the already thing clothing.

    It sure must be. How do you deal with it? *I* come here to learn. How about you, mr know-it-all???

    I mean... how difficult is it to use the proper part of the forum for banter? There are at least 3 other proper places this could have been placed. What does THIS have to do with the foundations of photography?

    Makes me laugh.

    Yes. I've experienced this phenomena several times under different conditions. Tell me, were they big, brown, puffy and supple, or were they small, red and erect?

    Wow.. I've come here after being turned off by two other photography forums and finding very friendly people here.. After reading about meet-ups and such, it's surprising to find a dick like you posting your angry posts here.. Perhaps you'd be happier at the Digital Photography School, where they only allow one post per day, and it can't be over 400 pixels wide or you'll get an "infraction.."

    Come on, man, we're all just here to enjoy life and enjoy photography, and if someone does or posts something that you don't like just walk away, go take a hot bath or just go relax in some other way.. No need to be such a dick when this is just a hobby.. I only do this for fun-never plan to make money off of it, so my dick-tolerance is pretty low, as you can imagine..

    Lighten up.

    Jerry your posts come in two flavors:

    Self Appointed Volunteer Forum Moderator, and Condescending "Regular Guy". I think we're seeing a bit of both here.

    Amazing that you seem to know the OP's intentions better than the OP? He had a technical problem, probably an embarassing one at that, that he doesn't seem to know the answer to and would like to correct for future reference. I'm sorry that the thought of a properly exposed nipple is blush-worthy to you, but nothing in the OP's original post would suggest this is anything OTHER than a request for information. Yet here you are, AGAIN, finger waging a poster because they've somehow offended your posting sensibilities.

    If the thread is so offensive, alert a mod, and move on.

    Relax. The last thing we need is for individuals like Jerry to feel validated in their self-righteousness; so lets cool it on the name calling - it'll only feed the troll.
