    An Incredily Newbie Type Question

    Sweet! I was wondering if that was the case. That makes life a lot less complicated. :lol:

    An Incredily Newbie Type Question

    So the picture she originally commented on had an F-stop of 5.6. She suggested I up the aperture a full stop. So, that'd be 8? And 2/3 of a stop would be? I'd probably grasp this better if I had my camera in hand... stupid 9-5 that keeps me from my real passions. ;)

    An Incredily Newbie Type Question

    The adage "The more I know, the more I find I have to learn" comes to mind for me. :lol: Man, there are days I think I'm making progress... then there are others I see how far I have to go. I guess it's the chase that keeps things interesting though. :)

    An Incredily Newbie Type Question

    So I see the logic in halving the shutter, ie: 1/120 to 1/60. And halving the ISO... from say 400 to 200. But the aperture? The math doesn't make sense? Is that just something I have to memorize?

    An Incredily Newbie Type Question

    So I'm actually a bit asahmed I have to ask this... but here goes. I understand about aperture and shutter speed. I understand, the faster the shutter, the lower the aperture and vice verse. I understand how to shoot on manuel and such. But what I don't understand is what someone means when...

    Max Sync Speed- Speedlight 430exii

    Yeah, I found one online... I'm just in a bind because I'm shooting an engagement session for a friend tomorrow, so I'm having to do a lot of last minute cramming. Just got the speedlite at Christmas and I'm not charging her... and I've told her she's my guinea pig. But I'd still like to give...

    Max Sync Speed- Speedlight 430exii

    Awesome... Found it! so now my question is... how do I turn that off? :lmao: And what does it mean when your flash screen is flashing? i'm guessing a low battery? The Pilot light is also red.

    New Camera or New Lenses?

    So I found a decent deal on a Tamron 28-75... Is there any way to tell, short of trusting the seller here, if it's Grey Market? Also, any recommendations for a good wide angle that's slightlyyy less expensive than the Sigma?

    Photoshop Frames

    Is there any way to put a nice frame between the pictures just to separate them out a bit? And maybe around the borders as well?

    Photoshop Frames

    I just got Photoshop for Christmas... and I'm looking for help with a certain effect. I want to do a series of 3 or 4 frames... something like this, though this isn't exactlyyy what I was looking for. http://www.flickr.com/photos/arss5000/2546169517/ I wish I could find a better example...

    Shooting my first engagement session- on the beach!

    So, one of my best friends just got engaged. I'm doing a freebie engagement session (my first) to get some practice under my belt. They're my guinea pigs, persay. And since they're not paying me anything, if the shots stink, we haven't really lost anything but a couple of hours. :lmao: Anyway...

    Max Sync Speed- Speedlight 430exii

    So, apparentely I was a good enough girl in Santa's book to merit getting a Speedlight 430 EXii this Christmas :D I shoot on a Rebel XTi... I know the max sync speed there is 1/200. But when I try to shoot on the Speedlight, it doesn't seem to be allowing me to use it above 1/200. What...

    Something on the sensor?

    So, I'm guessing since the photo shop guy said he tried 4 different techniques and couldn't get it off... the best thing to do at this point is send it back to Canon? (He didn't charge me though and the rest of the gunk got cleaned :D)

    Something on the sensor?

    Ok, here are a few shots. It's not always a big deal because I can sometimes edit it out. But, I'm not the world's best editor and not all situations are conducive to doing so (at least for this newb :lmao:)... I'd ideally just like to get this off my sensor.
