If you don't know what to do with your spare time, go walk your dog. If you don't have a dog, walk someone else's dog. It's a better way for you to spend your time than what you are doing right now. If you think you don't have any spare time, then you probably don't have a dog.

comment Lightroom -> edit in photoshop increases brightness?
What kind of image are you editing? I would assume it's not raw, but it does matter.

comment Lightroom -> edit in photoshop increases brightness?
Also, do the same thing in Photoshop. You want to make sure PS isn't changing the color space. (It could change from current to working, or it could be removing the embedded color space profile.) If the color space profile is changed, it will save in the new color space. This might give a different appearance on your monitor. ... You will actually find this option in Photoshop's Edit->Color Settings... dialog under profile mismatches

comment How do I expand a low dynamic range scene, in the analog domain, when shooting a photo?
@jrista - can you provide some images with their histograms to validate your answer? I'm on the fence about it, but leaning toward disagreeing. If you have some examples to show here, they would help. I'll look at it in more detail when I'm out of the office and share my own conclusions (unless some examples validate your answer).

comment When I change the EV compensation, how will that affect my aperture, shutter speed, or ISO?
Let me me try my interpretation of the question. If my camera is in manual mode and I change the exposure compensation, what are the new actual settings that the camera uses? Does the shutter speed change? Does the aperture change? BTW, does the ISO change? Same question, but with camera in full auto mode (yeah there are different auto modes), or shutter priority mode, or aperture priority mode. (Does the ISO ever change with exposure compensation?)

comment What (presumably mid-range) phone cameras compete with $100 Point & Shoot cameras?
The down votes aren't explained, so I'll piggyback on them (but I won't down vote). This is an open ended question. It isn't clear what you mean by "easily compete with the most serious Point & Shoots" Also, looks like spam with the statement "Hint: you can wait for tomorrow's Mobile World Congress for your answers."

comment How can I shoot in a studio at the widest apertures?
You can also try an ND fader filter or even two polarizer's stacked for the same effect. dpreview.com/forums/thread/3455638 and bhphotovideo.com/c/…

comment Why can my old Epson dye printer produce accurate reds but my professional lab can't?
What does the lab have to say about it? I have to imagine that an award winning lab has someone who can offer some authoritative information on the topic. They might even show you some counterexamples. If they do give you a response, please share it in your question. It's always helpful in these questions to show what research you have done.
