    Please help me recomend a point and shoot

    for taking the time to answer my question. Both cameras seem as though they would meet the needs of the shelters. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera does have a much higher ISO (3200 vs 1600) which would most likely help in the very low light situations. Both have similar max...

    Please help me recomend a point and shoot

    I have been helping local animal shelters take better photos of their pets to increase adoptions. I was asked recently by a state organization to give a workshop, and during the workshop many of these shelters seemed to have camera problems. They have junky point and shoots that are not suited...

    Portraits of my wife

    Very nice :) Were your negatives thin? They look a bit flat to me, but that could be from the scanning. Was that black strip from when you scanned it or is it on your actual image?

    Mandi & JR - October 11th wedding

    I love them all :) The cake came out beautifully, you really portrayed the colors. My only suggestion is in the last image of them dancing, I would darken her hand a bit on top.When i first glanced at it i though he was making a grab at her because her hand blends in with the dress.

    What am I doing wrong when I save?

    I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. What process do you follow when saving an image? I am using Adobe Photoshop CS3. I'm trying to figure it out but uggh. When I upload my images they become desaturated and flat. I am saving them at the highest image quality I can. TIA!

    Fall pics (kids)

    Great job :) I really enjoy number 1. Those serious kids are tough. My neice is the same way, but hey you have to portray them how they are you know? #3 honestly doesn't thrill me. I think it's the angle the picture was taken at... Did you take while you were standing? I always say my knees...

    Hey studio gurus... what would you do (Help!)

    Sigh... I know.. this is kind of why I'm pulling my hair out... Ah yes, I should have explained that also. The room is actually not too bad. There is no natural light what so ever. I cannot move the shoot outside, because 1. we can't risk the weather, and 2. I'm going to have to work with...

    Were you shooting on manual? And what exactly were you going for? It looks to me like you need to adjust the apeture / shutter speed
