I could drone on about photoshop too if you like. I have a great tip for sharpening images if you're interested?
Here's what you do: Duplicate the layer you want to sharpen make it Overlay Go to Filter/Other/High Pass once there sharpen the image to what suits best. I've found for portraits that 4.5 is pretty good. Then you can erase out any parts of the image that you would prefer to be less sharp on that layer.
i am keen beginner i am doing a PT course at local college tis fun and i am learning (from scratch) i think i take a nice pic and ive just bought photoshop elements but i havent the foggiest what youre on about in yr second post yet
ok, I usderstand I may have rushed a bit but it's really easy! I swear. I don't mean that you take an out of focus photo and try and make it good. It's just for getting photos just a little sharper. Anyway back to my new lenses... I got a canon L lens (70-200mm f2.8) and a canon 60mm 2.8 macro and I'm on love with both of them. I'll definitely have to do less photoshop work now that I have them. Ingles2-what kind of photography do you do? I take children's portraits mainly.
i have <checks camera as is packing bag for class> a nikon D70 which is a few years old now, but a v nice camera(as far as i know!) and a little kodak compact for snaps/days out. have been using it on auto and a couple of the settings for all this time... am gradually getting to know what the settings even are - told you am beginner! but i frame a nice pic now and then... i should upload some for critical appraisal
This is my dream. I love photography, but am limited to my phone at the moment (although it is actually a cracking camera considering!!) Our digi is awaiting new batteries. I really really want an slr and dh really really wants to buy me one. But is a lot of money. We would go e-bay/car boot etc if we knew enough to know good entry level . . . which we would find out if I could do the photography course I want to do, which I can't do because I work nights . In the meantime I'll plod on. I think I take good pictures.
