The damn thing was working fine and then Windows developed a mind of it's own. I will see Bill Gates in hell and spend my eternity making his afterlife miserable.
They say a yacht is a hole in the water in which you throw money.
I am sure you smart people can come up with a similar saying for photography.
Unfortunately, Bill has been gone for a few years now.The damn thing was working fine and then Windows developed a mind of it's own. I will see Bill Gates in hell and spend my eternity making his afterlife miserable.
Possibly - just depends on what you want to do with the backgrounds. Black you'll be fine - white you won't. Grey you'll probably be OK.
One of the biggest "gotchas" in portraiture is "why doesn't my white background look white" and the answer is "because the foreground light is falling away) ... ie you need to light it seperately. Having just said that however, you can often use an external speedlite type flash to do that (as can you use them in place of more expensive strobes if the subject isn't moving) (you just hit them with multiple shots and/or multiple flashes from the same flash unit, if you get what I mean).
No way am I ready to wrap my little brain around all this calibrating monitors and colors etc.,
Yikes! but I know I'll need to Especially since I do want to print my pictures!!...I'm going to have to come back to this thread!!
