View Full Version : What a difference! Better photos.

What a difference a little manual makes for better photos. I downloaded the manual for my Canon A10 at work today while looking at different cameras to purchase. I came home and monkeyed with the settings. Here are the results.

Take a look at the photos I put in S&T compared to these. Geez I'm dumb.

You can actually see the colors and the shapes on the beads.

Here's a better photo of the top set of beads.

good job Starlia! I also like when a long strand of beads are put in a circle as you've shown in the bottom photo--it allows you to get in close with your cropping, so we can see every detail. Nice beads by the way, I like your color palette, all the beads different, yet each working together well! :)


a strong proponent for reading owners manuals, lol

Thank you Val and Kaye. I've been growing by leaps and bounds since joining WC. I have a long way to go yet, but I've been having a blast.

Val - The reason all the beads are different is because of my short attention span. I don't think I could do the same bead over and over again. I'd get too bored with the glass then. I do good to make two of the same thing. :p

Starlia! Wow, what a difference!

I thought that set was pretty in the other pic, but your new photo shows much better detail, and brings out the colors more!

Digital cameras are a pain! Mine is SO complicated (Nikon Coopix 4300) it will take me my lifetime to be 100% happy with it. But what has helped me a lot with my pics is that several people on here have Nikons and posted their settings and lighting set-up. And Corina's advice on using a gray rather than a white background brings out the true colors more. It works! :)
