    Re: Resizing in DPP

    I recently process a bunch of soccer pics with DPP. I found that it new when I switched between portrait and landscape and sized accordingly. Also I had a couple of odd crops not the same ratios as...
  2. Re: Any thoughts on DDP comparision to other programs

    First a caveat, I am not a pro, or even an experiences amatuer.


    My short answer is give DPP a try, read Brian's workflow article on this site, and be patient. What it does with your shots is...

    Re: Shooting a nighttime football game

    Bob,


    I've been shooting my daughter playing soccer for about 18 months now. I have read a lot about sports shooting, and I am much better than when I started. You wouldn't believe how rusty you...

    Daniel,


    I recently read the thread on RAW histograms, and now this thread gives me a new thought. I'm typically out shooting my daughter on the soccer field. I'm now thinking that my set-up...

    Re: Missed Focus, DOF and Dinara Safina

    Sorry for the delayed response, it's been really crazy at work this week.

    Canoli,


    I too am a first year DSLR owner/shooter, keep this in mind, I am not an expert.

    Jorundr-Jorgensen,


    I have the opposite problem. My wife frowns at me if I try to keep all the pictures. Maybe it's because she's and engineer ;-)

    Re: ISO 1600 vs correcting exposure in photoshop

    Correct. ISO 1600 always has less noise for a fixed exposure, but that doesn't mean we should always use it. High ISO has a price: clipped highlights. That price is always far too high to pay, except...

    Re: help-looking for my first slr setup

    Indoor sports with a 50 1.8? You, sir, are a braver man than I. I only get out the nifty fifty if I'm dead sure it's going to be a situation that doesn't require a reasonably fast autofocus speed.

    Re: Lens Replacement

    Alex,


    If I were in your position I would consider an 85 1.8 and one longer lens. My reasoning is as follows. For the family and travel shots I think you are covered with the 17-85 and the 12-24....

    TSEvanson,


    It sounds like we have nearly identical setups, 18-55 kit, 50 f/1.8, and 70-200 f/4. I got the 70-200 to go on my 30D as a poor man's sports shooting setup. I mainly shoot my daughter...
