comment What are the most essential modifiers for shaping light?
Some example photos would be good. It may well be you are seeing examples of light painting: a long exposure in a dark room, with the object being lit with a flashlight in specific areas.

comment Why does my Sony Alpha 77 II sometimes change to a lower resolution on its own?
And as the TC function is controlled by a single button, which is itself right next to the Fn button, it's probably quite easy to press it inadvertently.

absolutely. But it may be an option. I'm just trying to narrow down possibilities.

Do the lower resolution pictures have anything in common? Were they all taken in a scene mode, or perhaps all taken in continuous shooting mode? I wonder if the camera lowers the resolution to optimise write speed in burst mode.

comment Anyone know how to save a Photoshop file, naming it from metadata or exifdata?
You'd probably need to script it.

comment How can I find the Nikon D5300 wifi WPA2 password?
IIRC, connecting via WPS removes the need to enter a password. It just requires the connecting app to attempt a WPS connection within a short time after activating WPS on the camera.

Photoshop will do a much better job of it than Lightroom
