Camera's

I’ve decided (due to frustration) that I’m going to buy a new camera when I can get some cash together (so maybe wont be for 6 months or so) and I’m thinking of the d300 or d700.

Each has its own argument. The d700 has a full frame sensor which is nice but the d300 is cheaper which is also nice so I don’t know.

Has anyone has any experience with either of these cameras? What I’m particularly interested in is the ISO because right now the d40x just doesn’t cut it!

A great start to the year

I’m very pleased to say I sold a framed print of my image of sydney hyde park. Thank you who bought this!

If this is any sign I’m excited for a great 2009 of photography and adventures

The Art of Retouching --> Are we all too Fake

I recently had some professional shots done of myself and my family for mum for christmas and when the shots came back all of my sunspots and the like had been smoothed right out.

And so I was thinking has society taken us to a point now where we are expected to be perfect and imperfections are just removed at a click of a bu

Colour Management HELP

In need of help…

I recently started viewing my images on different monitors and was shocked at the difference in colour’s. I knew there would be some difference but it got me thinking. If I’m editing my images so they look good to me on my monitor how do I know how they are going to appear on everyone else’s monitor’s and if someone just has their monitor on a default setting out of the box the result could be completely disastrous especially with contrast and brightness as well.

So I ask this question what advice would you give to prepare your images for redbubble knowing that they could appear different to everyone?

And as an extra to this how do I know that my monitor is giving a true represetation of colour? Or is there no true in the sense of the word and its just what looks nice?
