I am a floor-level three-shift factory worker by profession. My hobbies are reading, photography and living in peace. Most of my free time I spend at summer cottage which is a winterproof house and should be called our 2nd home instead. I have a family, including two kids, two dogs and five cats.

While I list photography as a hobby, I don't mean I am a good photographer. I just like to use a camera and record a memory of things I see around me. Been doing this since I was 14 years old and I'm not any sort of enthusiast about it. I just like it :)

comment How can I have the LiveView of my camera displayed on a TV or Laptop screen?
@Erin - Just a moment ago I tried this "If you plug the camera in to a TV via HDMI, then for most cameras, whatever would normally show up on the LCD should be displayed on the TV and the controls on the camera will function as normal." and it works as it should on a cheap Sony SLT model. Using the camera, taking photos and seeing it all on TV like in LiveView display; all OK.

comment Photo stretched at corners?
@happyCoder_ My mistake here was that I never thought there are real wide angle lenses without any distortion to speak of. In my mind all wide angle lenses show a variety of distortions which are then corrected after the image is captured.

comment What do Pentax, Sony, and Olympus DSLRs offer that differs from Canon and Nikon?
Too broad. In order to answer this thoroughly one should have knowledge of Sony, Pentax and Olympus cameras throughout their models, AND then also good knowledge of Canon and Nikon models in order to tell what is different and what is not among all these brands. What more, not only the answerer needs all this information, but also those who vote should know these things well enough to be able to upvote a good answer.

comment How do you develop 'creative taste' in order to take a good photo?
I fully agree with @VenomRush and his read of this answer. Rfusca did not get it, imo.

comment How to photograph an adult and a child together such that the adult doesn't dominate the scene?
Isn't the easiest technique, as you describe here, also the most common and "classic" even to the point that every such photo looks like a thousand similar photos, dull and unimaginative?
