    I took out the desktop tri-pod I purchased when I bought the camers and was able to get a steadier focus and picture. Still alot to learn with the new camera.

    Dan - It is off auto-focus and relies strictly on the settings I have come to at this point.

    Thanks for the feedback guys............it helps the learning process.

    Guy, there is not much to improve with the camera.
    The depth off sharpeness is less when you get closer. The only thing to get sharp from front to back is with a little diafragma f 16 maybe f 22.
    Maybe you can set another diafragma on the camera. The shutter speed is getting longer when the diagframa is getting smaller.
    That is why a tripod is needed. Another thing what is gotta be bigger, is a large amount of light. The more light, the shorter the shutter speed.

    Hope this helpe's you someway.

    Very nice guy, the facial tones are very convincing, you've captured the tan and rustic look of thge Old West.

    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers

    Guy, the only thing you need at this point, in my opinion, is only a photoshop'ed background... ;)

    Thanks Joe & Calvin

    Calvin - I priced the photoshop program and ouch!!!! I'll have to stay with my Paint Shop Pro for the time being.
  11. Calvin Member

    Yes, I know...
    If you have a picture you would like to put as background, just send it (lpiergentili@yahoo.com).
    Ciao

    Guy - Best pics from you yet. Really helps us to see the quality of your work.

    Try a few different shade backgrounds. I bought some matte paper boards at the local craft store. May be a slightly darker back ground to bring out that white shirt?

    Guy,

    To demonstrate how important White Balance is, this is what your picture should look like, assuming that the shirt is white.

    Left picture is your original. On the right, same pic with colour balance correction in Photoshop.

    Thanks Quang.........I see what yopu mean by having the correct white adjustment. I shall try a few more pics this afternoon to see if I can get the same results by adjusting the camera setting.

    Thanks again.........valuable example you have given me.
