comment What camera defect would cause a shot to be exposed on one half of the frame and not the other?
are you sure is the camera and not your finger blocking the lens? ;-) flickr.com/photos/akkarael/107462777

comment Should an artist/photographer admit to a photo being edited?
Some people might go as far to consider that using a filter (GND, polarizer, whatever...) is also "editing".

comment What's the reason for red eye in photo?
Why cat's eyes appear as sort of ghosty green (see the photo on this comment in flickr: flickr.com/photos/book-keeper/374681113/…). Have cats ghosty green blood?

comment After 2 years of amateur photo, buy a new body or a great lens?
Yup, I also thought about a flash for indoor uses, but I guess that I will enjoy more other options. Also light stand + umbrellas fall out of my area, as I just do it for fun and I don't have any studio nor the will to carry extra equipment to my friends' houses when we throw a little party

comment After 2 years of amateur photo, buy a new body or a great lens?
Thank you for your answer. I know it really depends on me and my camera usage, but I was asking maybe in search of your own experience. Did upgrading the body bring a whole new experience with new possibilities for the lens I had, or it is better to add more lenses as the body really isn't that important for a hobbyist?

comment After 2 years of amateur photo, buy a new body or a great lens?
@Imre I can't get out as much as I'd like to, but I do it as much as I can. Also I find that the D60 is quite basic for me at this point. No bracketing exposure, no AF in the body (although I don't have lenses to benefit from it yet), bad ISO performance, ...

comment Does rotating a photo count as a destructive editing?
Also, take into account that most digital cameras today add the Orientation EXIF tag to the image metadata. If you just want to rotate an image 90 degrees (from portrait to landscape or viceversa), modifying the EXIF tag is better. BTW, Windows Photo Viewer does not interprete this tag, but other software does. So probably your images are already in the correct orientation, and the problem is the software you are using.

comment What is the best tutorial to learn photography?
The totally basics and first things I cared as a newbie, when I didn't know how to get the photos well illuminated, is perfectly explained in this question: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/6598/…

comment What are backup options for the lazy but paranoid dSLR user?
2 hard drives, one on-site and one off-site. I made an agreement with a friend. Each one of us bought one external hard drive. We backup our data weekly in one hard disk and the next week we swap disks, so all my data is backupped to 2 different disks, one at my home, another away (yeah, one backup is between 7-14 days old). If you are worried about privacy, you can encrypt your partition so your friend can't see your data.

comment How to accurately / competitively price prints when digital images are already paid for?
As an amateur photographer and soon-to-be-married person, I would say that giving away the high-res (either free or at a plus) is a must for me, and maybe that's why your wife's service may be different to anyone else and why clients would choose her. I know I would. For my wedding I will hire a photographer that gives me high res pictures (jpg are fine), I don't care about the extra cost. BTW I'm from Spain if that makes any difference.
