#9. "RE: D90 exposure from LCD to computer - Photos added" In response to In response to 7
Hi, thanks for the input. Here are two that I edited. Basically I adjust the levels, contrast and brightness. My problem with the two I posted previously is that there is detail lost in the shadows that can't be retrieved, or at least I couldn't get it back through levels adjustment.
Sorry, I have a few more questions that I hope some of you can help with. I know I am going off topic here but appreciate any assistance!
1.Do you think RAW is the way to go? Basically, I edit each image for contrast, brightness and levels anyway, so perhaps this is a better idea. The problem is that I need to give a CD of the images to the web developer and figure they will be turned into JPEGs anyway.
2. Some photos will be used for print as well, so do you think RAW to TIFF is a better option for this? Or RAW to something else? I'm not sure what the best file type is for quality and color detail, but thought TIFF was preferable to JPEG.
3. If I shoot RAW, is one converter better than another? I downloaded the Adobe converter but have not tried it out yet....
4. I am using a two speedlite setup with one on the high front left of the guitar and one on the right, lower and aimed toward the side to create a highlight on the edge of the body. They are aimed into umbrellas but I was wondering if another flash behind the guitar or perhaps focused on the headstock might balance things out? Any input on setup is appreciated.
Thanks so much for your help! This forum is amazing!
