How do you get clear and vivid pictures on your DSLR?
Combination of setting the camera correctly and knowing my PP software.
Allow me re-phrase that, how long is a piece of string?
Proper post processing or proper JPEG preset.
Most of my RAW files shot are flat and dull straight out of camera. You can choose presets for your JPEGs (the camera does all the editing itself), boosting saturation and contrast, if I'm not much mistaken. WB also plays an important part in colour renditions.
NOOOOOOO DON'T ADVOCATE SHOOTING JPEG!!! :lmao:
First and foremost is good and proper exposure.
Then knowing how to set the curve of your raw image in post processing to give the result you envision.
Thanks guys for replying.
How about a polarized lens filter?
in 5% of pictures may help.
Well, he did say 'or'. Some situations just can't be shot in raw.
Oh? What situations would that be that can't be shot in Raw?
The auto focus and metering systems in DSLR cameras require a circular polarizing (CPL) filter be used.
A CPL filter is most effective when the Sun is less than 30° above the horizon and at 90° to the lens focal length axis (the side).
When you need to shoot lots and lots and lots of frames fast.
Sure, you could shoot in raw......... and miss 95% of the action just waiting for the buffer to clear.
