Hello this is Renato D’Agostin. By chance I found myself on this blog, and found curious and flattering to read comments about my photography. I thought it could be nice to comment myself. Regarding the way I shoot, I am very basic. I do indeed use a Leica M6, but mostly a Nikon F100. Some of my favorite and most relevant shots where taken with a 50euros F60 ...

Please note - it has been a while since I've worked with this kind of scanning. I think the repeating pattern (especially visible in the wood section of the image after blurring) can be caused by interference between the the scanner's grid of pixels and the grids used in the CMYK halftone screens. The traditional way to reduce the effect would be to try ...

One way to solve this is to create a style that turns the watermark off. In Darktable 3.4 (current version), this can be done by: Selecting an image with a watermark. In the Darkroom, turn the watermark module off. In the Darkroom, press the style creation button in the History Stack module. In the style creation dialog, select only the Watermark module (it ...

Greenscreen is technically a specific green (it registers on a display as being entirely 'green gun' nothing else - however most green screen software is pretty flexible on that, so in practice, anywhere close will do. Bluescreen is an alternative, used predominantly in the movie industry, though I don't know why. they will use bluescreen to mask off an ...

No, it doesn't have to be green. You can use any color that makes this easy to do. You probably don't want to use a neutral color, but rather something that contrasts pretty strongly with your dog. The technique you're referring to is called chroma key. In order to make it easy to select only the background for removal, you want the background to be any ...

I like to consider myself as an amateur photographer but I've been shooting for almost two years now. For a year and some change I've done work for free just to gain some experience. About 4 months ago I started to charge $75/hour for shoots and events; all my sessions are held on location except for events of course. Both an amateur and a pro produce ...

Ideally, your editing environment should be the same regardless of the time of day. You should have control of the daylight entering the room (curtains) because that affects WB and relative screen brightness. The lighting should be provided by daylight bulbs at a fixed level. And the monitor should be calibrated in that environment (D65 or native recommended)...

While your eyes are quite good at adapting to color temperature changes, the image will look off on displays that are not using the same color shift you used when editing the image. For this reason many photographers calibrate their displays for editing to set them to a shared neutral setting. This includes color temperature, color shifts and display ...

If you do not know then you are not a pro. It's okay to be an amateur and it's okay to charge according to your needs, but the customer will decide if your work is on par with your rates. I will say that $75/hour sounds steep for an untrained entusiast who is not enthusiastic.

That shot looks like no special lighting was used at all. The warm glow is from the clear incandescent tree lights. It is shot with a slow shutter speed. Use a tripod and if you have a subject, don't allow it to move.

I’m not sure about lighting but if I want to achieve a shot like this, I would increase the temperate/warmth and take out as much of the blue’s as possible in the image. I’d maybe even shift the greens to the warmer end of the spectrum too.

Perhaps i should have just said what type of lighting and background do i need to capture this ambient lighting. As well as the editing and other post photo stuff. – Joseph This image is obviously shot with a window in the frame and providing light. Using a sheer white cover over a window is a common method for utilizing window light, which is soft in ...

First, you need to decide what you want photography to do for you. Should it be your primary job? Are you hoping to make a bit of money to buy your photography gear? Are you hoping to make a bit of money to validate your photography skill? Are you charging to chase away the people who would want you to do a project but only want it for free? All of ...

Panorama applications can usually auto-align a stack of photos since this is a special case of the adjustments needs for correct stitching. For instance how you can use Hugin for this is shown here. To get to the interface used in the guide, go to View -> Panorama editor. Also make sure Interface in the menu bar is set to Expert, or the Remapped Images ...
