Thanks for the info! I was able to get on the link you sent and will be working on designing a logo through GIMP. We’ll see how that goes! Haha!
Unfortunately, the only software I own is Picasa and GIMP…I like free software. 😉
Thanks again for your help!
I’m looking into designing a logo for our family business and wondered if anyone has ever tried designing a logo through GIMP? If so, is it relatively easy, and or do you recommend using GIMP?
Any advice would be appreciated!
Thank you for your reply! I guess I haven’t thought of it much, nor work with RAW photos, so I wouldn’t know much of the differences between JPEG and RAW. Now that you’ve opened my eyes to the major differences though, I’m going to start learning about it. Do you always shoot RAW photos? And would you recommend shooting JPEG or RAW for portraits?
Well, I’ll need to read all of those posts! I’m sure they will be very helpful to answer many of my questions, but if I have any more, I’ll come first to the Lenspiration forum! I googled GIMP earlier today and can’t wait to start using it…(editing photos is so much fun 😀 )
Thanks again for your help – it’s greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your quick responses!
I do not have Elements 15 and haven’t used anything other than Picasa and my Nikon software…it sounds like Photoshop could be a little tricky for someone like me, who has zero experience with it. 😀 (The only reason I’m considering Elements 15 is because I found it for 50% off the original price.) I think I…[Read more]
I ordered the 50mm Nikkor lens and received it yesterday…I love it! Last night, I was so excited to see how it worked, that I took my little brother outside to do a photo-shoot of him all dressed up. 🙂 My biggest concern in portrait photography is getting the eye tack sharp and I’d say this lens does a good job of it! Also, @buddingphotograph…[Read more]
Ok, I’ll just go with the 50mm so that the people in the pictures look nice. 😉 I surely wouldn’t want distorted faces! Thank you, everyone, for being willing to help me out even though I’ve asked quite a few questions for one post…it is greatly appreciated!
Wow! That’s a very helpful photography rule – one I’ve never heard before! I’ll be keeping that in mind as I go forward now, and I can’t wait to try it out! 😉 I’m curious – if I was using my 55-200mm lens, zoomed in all the way, maximum aperture, in low light situations (like after the golden hour), would I want to just crank the ISO up high…[Read more]
Thank you, @buddingphotographer, for the helpful reminders and the link to the refurbished 50mm lens from Adorama – I’m definitely ready to get it and that is the best deal I’ve seen!
Are you shooting from a tripod?
Most times I don’t use a tripod when taking portraits of families because I move from spot to spot to get better angles,…[Read more]
@jamesstaddon, I’m pretty sure the blur is caused from either camera shake, moving children 🙂 or slow shutter speed…I always make sure to put the focus directly on the subject and if possible, pointing right at the eye (although sometimes I shoot more than one person and have to focus on multiple people). Also, I try to take pictures in the…[Read more]
