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. For those who have read my blogs in the past, you know that I recommend this combination as a good economy rig for those getting started or simply have no budget for photography gear.For the most part I have been using this lens with manual focus for birds on a stick and had not used the AF a whole lot, but when I did use it, I noticed... continue reading

AF Micro Adjustments- Handy Tool

This simple tool will help to assist in the procedure of micro adjustments, and you can download it here here. 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.

I will adjust my shooting

Especially cold this winter, but my passion for shooting is very high. In 2009 the last few days, I became a member of dreamstime, and uploaded my picture, now I have 23 images online. I found a great difference between Chinese and foreign, in the awareness of the picture.As a photographer, I feel I need to do some adjustments to the shooting.The most important adjustment should be re-grasp the picture. In next few days, I will be required to take some still life. continue reading

Photoshop / Topaz Adjust Video Tutorial (italian)

Hi all, I'm glad to share with you my last Photoshop Video Tutorial (Italian):it's about the correct use of Topaz Adjust plug-in. Everyone know that TopazAdjust easily produces terrific results: there's a kind of "topaz flu" in the photographic world. Less easy is to chose the proper setting, to know how to divide the image in different areas that need different "adjust", to use layers and their blend mode and opacity option, to get a more "natural" look.Unfortunately for the rest of the world... continue reading

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
