I have a pair of Dell U2211h's that are calibrated with the xrite i1. The problem I have is that the monitors -- when set to the calibrated setttings -- are not as bright as I'd like them to be. I checked the calibration and it's "fine". But for everyday viewing (e.g. when I'm not...
My company is a web development/SEO firm and I'm considering expanding into the Wordpress theme market. Clearly if I'm going to be reselling Wordpress themes I will need to find photography for these themes that I can legally use for this purpose. I use iStockphoto for my personal needs...
Because I want all of the nuggets in the shot as it is currently (e.g. I don't want to see the edges of the pan), would it make sense then to first make the AF point set on the one closest to the front nugget? Would this solve my problem of keeping the same composition of the picture?
I must have been 2-3 feet away. Not too far. I will close down on the aperture and see how it goes, thanks.
??? Also -- should I still focus on the center nuggets? Or on the front nuggets? I still want the same composition.
I'm trying to take a picture of these chicken nuggets (long story) with the front nuggets in focus, but with the rest out of focus. I'm using a tripod with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 and a 430EX II, and no matter how much I change the aperture, I can't seem to get a shot with the "front" nuggets in...
I purchased the canon 50mm 1.8 lens and I like it. Playing with this lens now for a bit I really don't see a need to put my 18-55mm kit lens back on. Am I missing anything by keeping the 50mm on (for shooting in that range, of course).
So I took the plunge and graduated from built in flash on my Rebel XTi to the 430 EX II. I've been playing around with the flash but I'm not sure if I'm using it correctly or to it's potential. I've read the manual but with little success, and I've experimented playing with shots and the...
What is the limitation of using the manufacturer's ICC profile that comes with a monitor?
Does a hardware based solution simply act to do a much better job of creating a profile for your montior?
Yikes! If a lens is a f/2.8 -- constant or fixed, does that still mean that the aperture doesn't change no matter what the focal length does???? Maybe I don't get what you mean by constant aperture....
Also, when you say "variable aperture" is that the same thing as a "zoom" lens?
So it the point that basically, once you are at the level of using a fixed-aperture lens, then messing with aperture for sharpness is something you don't need to really worry about because of the inherent higher quality of the lens?
