      General Photography Discussions (Technical Stuff)

      I thought there needs a separate thread to discuss the technical side of photography. Please keep this thread clear of what camera, what lens type questions. So here goes...

      Here is a good article on Flash Photography with Canon EOS Cameras - Part I

      Do you want the effect wherein the subject is in focus whereas the background is blurred? For that use a high aperture (low F number).

      Hi guys, how do you handle the cameras in humid condition? I am facing water condensation on the UV filter , view finder and even on display, when I remove camera from the bag after coming out of a airconditioned room. Problem is, after 4-5 hours of keeping the the camera in the aircon, it gets quite cool and attracts the condensation. As a precaution, i did not operate anything, until it was back to ambient outside temperature, no condensation. This is a Canon 450D with 18-55 IS lense, UV filter on it.

      If anybody is still interested the best book on processing I have come across is Modern Photographic Processing, by Grant Haist. This was in two volumes, published in the 1970's. The author has over 20 years under his belt in Kodak R&D. The book may be out of print now.

      @ Shyam Hegde.

      I have faced this problem when I was on a family outing at a beach resort. The first and foremost thing I suggest is never detach the lens from the camera even if it is not an ideal combination you were looking for (camera safety is of prime importance here ..heh... ).Detaching a lens in such hostile conditions will lead to moisture getting accumulated over the sensor surface and cause serious problems. Secondly, I suppose the glass and metal surfaces on the lens / camera are more prone to attract moisture as they tend to get cold quickly. Always keep the camera well padded in its case and ensure that AC air does not touch these surfaces. Take the camera out of the case only when you are out of the AC room.

      Hope that helps. Happy clicking

      To me, it does not seem that the photographer has used any ultra wide apertures, it could be some where like F8, 1/125 for the 1st snap and F 5.6, 1/220 for the 2nd snap. I suppose the image has been post processed. Anyway let me make a guess.

      1. The camera is a regular P&S and not a DSLR. See the quality of bokeh any one can understand.
      2. Color setting is Standard/ Natural and something like that which do not boost the saturation.See the red color has some details.
      3. WB slightly tuned towards cooler direction, may be Tungsten WB used.
      4. ISO 80/64/100/50 or what ever is lowest. I do not see much in the line of noise here.
      5. Flash - switched off. No harsh light spots / shadows seen.
