comment Is there an easy way to convert all my photos from .NEF to .JPG for upload to Facebook?
DPI is irrelevant when creating JPEG's destined for monitors and other displays (i.e. from Facebook in a browser).

comment Is there any significant difference between Nikon and Canon?
@MattGrum sorry! My mistake.

comment Is there any significant difference between Nikon and Canon?
Every recent Canon DSLR has 3-shot auto-exposure bracketing. hdr-photography.com/aeb.html

comment Why are my 14-bit RAW files being saved as 8-bit on my computer?
I'm not sure how this possible. If you shoot raw, your files should be 14-bit .CR2 files. How do you know they're 8-bit? What software are you using them in? If they're 8-bit, then they're likely JPEGs.

comment When do you center your subject in environmental portraits?
For me, I tend to view the desirable composition of a photo like the example given to be on a see saw. If the subject is on either side, it's at rest. If the subject is in the center, it could go either direction and has the potential to feel like you're not stable. Maybe tension isn't the right word, maybe 'dynamic'. That's probably the best analogy I can think of for my own point of view.

comment What camera should a student buy to transition into professional work?
Every DSLR does in-camera JPEG processing. It's usually set to JPEG by default. You can, however shoot RAW+JPEG.

comment Does long exposure affect the sharpness of a picture, assuming no camera shake?
Though to note: the noise reduction applied would be different depending on shooting in raw/JPEG and the camera's capabilities.

comment How do I avoid so much noise in this HDR image?
My mistake, it's 8:30am. Still not awake :)

comment How do I avoid so much noise in this HDR image?
There is one problem with your "HDR" shot and that is you have taken three images of a moving subject. HDR doesn't really work when you scene is changing, hence the ghosting of the competitors.

comment How can I stage a realistic-seeming jungle shoot without an actual jungle?
You should have a wander over to Phlearn and take a look at the videos Aaron Nace has. Not specifically about creating jungles, but he has a lot about how to approach things like it.

comment What features in Lightroom 4 make it worth upgrading?
I was particular impressed with the way the tonal controls under Basic (particularly shadows and highlights) work within the context of the image. No longer does it push your entire image around like with Fill Light. It's actually more like simplified Tone Curve controls.

Edited for clarity and added explanations.

comment What's the easiest way to deliver RAW images online to a client?
Curious. Why are you sending RAW files to a client? Are they specifically going to be doing the post processing?

comment What are the international translations for Canon DSLR body names?
I wish they'd stop doing this. Everyone says "XTi" this "XSi" that and I have no clue what model they're talking about. Same with the KISS thing in Japan.

comment Can I get high resolution photo from video?
Not unless you're shooting with a RED camera.

comment What makes the Nikon 1 V1 different from Nikon's existing DSLRs?
@seanmc Remember that this is a 2.7x crop factor, so the 70-200mm equivalent for the 1 series would be a 25-75mm lens. Currently there's a 10-100mm and also a 30-110mm.

comment Does my crop sensor camera actually turn my lenses into a longer focal length?
Yep. Exactly the same composition (disregarding difference in sensor quality). Snip snip!

comment For a novice to flash, what color correction gels would be best to experiment with?
Yeah. A CTO gel (in whatever strength) will shift the colour toward the cooler, but more orange tungsten white balance.

comment Is there a difference between a large, far light source, and a small, close one?
@ysap they wouldn't look the same size. The lines going from the sources to the subject are different angular sizes. I'm not arguing that the diagram is incorrect. It isn't. But the question isn't the same as what that diagram is depicting.

comment Is there a difference between a large, far light source, and a small, close one?
@ysap the question is talking about the difference between light sources that are visibly the same size to the subject, being physically different in size depending on distance. Your example doesn't show this, instead showing the difference between apparently different sized light sources.
