comment What is the purpose of wide lenses?
What are you supposed to do if there is a wall/cliff/other obstacle behind you and you can't just take some steps back?

comment White Balance - How is plastic made white? RGB(255,255,255)
Can you edit this down to one primary question? There are ten different questions in here and it is not clear what you are ultimately interested in understanding.

comment While shooting in RAW, do you have to post-process it to make the picture look good?
@MichaelClark: a raw file is still very much an images by definition. What separates an image from just "data" is what the data represents. It is the data representing a 2d photographic perception. Just because you need to do some math to display the contents on a screen, that doesn't make it not an image, because you have to do some math to display a JPG or any other format.

comment Should I ask the hotel permission to shoot potraits in their room/suite?
If your stuff is in bags, how would they know, and secondly, how would they know its not for some gig elsewhere in town, and even then why would they even care?

How would the hotel even know to kick you and your model out?

Keep in mind that it can easily be argued that paying for the room and getting the key equates to permission, a booked hotel room is different than the other examples of private property.

Just do it without asking, no one is going to care.

comment Why do camera manufacturers stick with the same awkward control layout imposed by film cameras?
You underestimate how much in common today's cameras have with film cameras of old.

What is different in the amazon photo from yours that you want to achieve? Yours looks fine to me.

comment Do Raw camera images store colors logarithmically, with black near 0 and white at infinity?
@Itai: you could make that claim about virtually any image file format. "One can create an image from a JPEG file, but in itself it's not an image, it does not store colors but discrete cosine transforms", etc.

comment Why do we actually need to adjust white balance?
@user54609: because what's normal is based on what you're familiar with and what you expect. There is no 'correct' when it comes to our perceptions. Your brain interprets the bluish white as being actually white because you know it's supposed to be white.

We don't see with our eyes, we see with our brains. Our eyes don't make adjustments to colors, our brains do.

comment What's the point of capturing 14 bit images and editing on 8 bit monitors?
@J...: your eyes are actually pretty lousy imaging devices. What is responsible for pretty much everything good is our brains' visual cortex.
