Canon 7D, Tamron and Autofocus

Just a quick technical tip this week...I wanted to take a quick moment to write about an issue I had this week with my Canon 7D and the Tamron 70-300mm VC lens.

It should be displayed on an LCD screen a 100% zoom setting, so at native size.It works by exploiting the interference patterns, or moiré, between the R/G/B LCD elements and the camera's LCD elements when directly viewed with Live View.

My 50th approval

Today I reached my 50th submission. It took some time to find out what is wanted and what not but the number of my rejected photos went down and the number of approved photos went up in the last months.

Later on I learned that, when I made a levels adjustmentlayer, I could see the lot of pixels I had left behind. From than on the number of approved photo’s increased. I never... continue reading

Is the trash your best friend?

I´ve heard several photographers affirmed: “The best photographer’s friend is the trash”.I know several photographers who have no mercy with photos that aren’t perfect at the first side (or after a small color adjustment). I can’t say the same about me.Like with this photo. Imagine the picture without any light effect and without the blue color in background. During walk, my husband, I and our retriever have encountered this Christian cross. But the sky was colorless and the... continue reading
