that are shooting fashion and portrait....what are your settings?
The model of the camera shouldn't have any bearing on what settings you use. And when shooting fashion, portrait (or anything) it depends on what light you have and what you want to do.
Maybe a better question would be how do photographers determine their exposure when shooting fashion & portrait photography.
Again, it depends on several things that could be unique to the situation they are shooting in.
Depends on the results I want and the light I'm using. Apertures will vary from f/4 (on an f/2.8 lens) to around f/8. Shutter speeds depend on the amount of ambient light. ISO is kept as low as possible.
hmmm....i guess i was talking more toward like the profile settings.....contrast sharpness ect.....
Raw, neutral picture style, auto wb, M or Av. That's what I use for everything. I control contrast with lighting and processing. My sharpening techniques in Photoshop are much better than anything available in-camera.
What he said except I usually set the color temp in camera.
Set on faithfull all on zero don't let your camera adjust your shots
Thanks guys i will try that today and see what result i get...As you can see. i am trying to avoid the photoshoping part...i know it takes alot of practice, but i am willing to do so.
Not possible with sharpness
Depends on the algorithm really. On the off chance that I shoot JPEG (when I need more than 400 shots in a short session), I find Sharpness +1 on the D200 works very well.
But then I totally agree with you, nothing done in camera at all compensates for shooting in RAW and giving each good photo proper attention. Each photo is different and thus should be treated differently. I say this goes doubly for a portrait session. If you want to be the Costco of portraits and spit out 1000 identical looking frames be my guest, but I would take 20 excellent photos each carefully detailed in photoshop anyday.
If you are doing production line shooting like at a highschool dance or something it may still be best to touch up one photo till it's fine and then batch process the rest. Chances are they will all need the same settings in that case anyway.
hmm okay....i just see alot of picture out there that looks soooo sharp..i was just wondering how are they getting that sharp shot!
Very skilled sharpening
