I think I'm qualified to post in here, (beyond the basics). I have a Nikon D40 and take photographs almost entirely for business. I know how to use all the functions, and generally shoot in manual mode, and we have a whole professional lighting set up with muslin background. BUT we cannot figure out how to get backgrounds in our pictures like this- (not my picture) instead of like this- where you can see the stupid crinkly background (my picture)!:x I'm starting to think you have to go to RAW which I know NOTHING about, am hoping its something really simple though :er: If anyone knows, please tell me! And then I'll want to know how I can learn too. Thanks so much in advance!!!
