    First post! Photo critiqe

    The picture is a bit dull. It could od with overall brightness increasing and also Gamma (contrast). For me, there is too much sky which adds nothing - cropping the sky will help the balance of the picture. I have had a go with your posted Jpg - this is what I ended up with (the sheep are now...

    Depth of field (DOF) does NOT change with sensor size

    I think that I can safely say that none of my photographs are faithful renditions of what I see. I am more interested in conveying smell (usually musty), temperature (usually cold), age (usually ancient) and other non visual aspects of my subject (mediaeval churches). Lenses pay only a small...

    Published photographer?

    Yes, published in print. Otherwise we are all published by virtue of being on this forum. I think there might be exceptions to that - there are now on-line only periodicals that have taken the place of print periodicals, and this is a thing that is going to become more common. Sent from my...

    Published photographer?

    If your photographs are published then you are clearly a published photographer - it doesn't mean anything else, mind. Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    Can you scrub EXIF/metadata from a file

    Is it cheating if you don't get caught? Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    Can you scrub EXIF/metadata from a file

    I would have thought it did but to be sure - export a file from Lightroom to you desktop and then look at the exported image to see if there is any Exif data there. You do not need us to tell you.

    Posting Pictures

    You don't. You also have an option to upload a file - this is what you use to upload an image from your own computer. Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    a guide to photo knowledge for beginners and advanced shooters

    Not sure you understand what bokeh is. Bokeh is the quality of the out of focus areas - you pretty much always have bokeh. Bokeh is either nice or nor nice - appealing or not appealing. You can have a picture with nothing in focus - all blurred - and you still have good bokeh or bad bokeh etc...

    The bit from the internet - you really should acknowledge exactly which part of the internet with a link not just plagiarise it. In general - as clear as mud. Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    Anyone recognize this view finder?

    It might not be the original finder, but it is an appropriate design for the time. Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    Why is there a difference between colours on my laptop and my phone?

    So, are both your computer monitor AND phone properly colour calibrated? Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    How many....???

    If I am photographing wildlife, about 250. If I am photographing old churches, about 50. Landscape, around 10. If I am using film, rather fewer. Sent from my 8070 using Tapatalk

    Cinestill DF96 weird grain issue.

    I second Derrel and think that is reticulation. Have I read your post right and you developed at 90°? Even with Fahrenheit that is hot. If that was followed by cold rinse water then reticulation is going g to be very likely. You need all your liquids, including rinse water, to be close in...

    Is it me or the printer

    I shall start with the assumption that you are editing your photos on a calibrated screen. Metadata has nothing to do with how the photo looks when printed. There is no code involved in an image file. Your image file consists of a number of bytes each of which stores the brightness of one...

    Focus or Camera Shake?

    The shutter speed is a bit slow on the first. Using the old adage of minimum shutter speed being the reciprocal of the focal length, your shutter speed should have been 1/375 or faster (you are using a crop sensor camera so that minimum shutter speed gets multiplied by 1.5).

    Canon Mark IV Not Reading Memory Card

    As Bratkinson says, I would always turn off the camera before removing the card. These toys are expensive and it is not worth ruining them for the sake of one second's effort. My EOS 80D's manual says to turn power off before opening the card cover - and wait for the access lamp to be off as well.
