1. ## Is this picture taken with ff camera?

can anyone know if this picture taken with FF camera ??? As i notice the IQ of the picture really very good..the color and contrast really look nice...

These could also have been taken with a point-and-shoot. on sucha small image, IQ is indistinguishable from other formats. Color and contrast can be adjusted ina ny number of ways.

3. ## Re: Is this picture taken with ff camera?

I guess PnS/superzoom.
The fact that the little anime doll fills the frame leads me to conclude that the camera to subject distance was rather small... and yet the dof is not particularly thin, even though it looks like that was the attempt (to isolate the subject with thin dof)...

Point and shoot camera is those compact camera?? and how do you really define DOF is thin?? i know what DOF mean..but dont really understand the term of DOF that is not particular thin..

LOL

this takes the cake

firstly, at web size, IQ doesn't matter that much, especially at lower ISOs.

color and contrast? you don't need FF cameras to get a nice variants of those two parameters.

have you tried macro photography with a dslr?

this is a fork at f/5.6

depth of field depends on three parameters:

1) f stop, smaller f stop = wider aperture = thinner dof
2) focal length - longer focal length all other things equal, thinner dof
3) relative distance of subject to camera (assuming in focus) to distance of background to camera - obviously, if background is further away then perceived thinner dof

now, for macro photography, the main thing is #3.

you are going in very close to your subject, hence the relative background distance is multiplied manyfold.

you need to read up on basic photography, if this dof concept is not properly understood yet.

erm...it seems that it can project the dolls details pretty well...i have been browsing other pictures with those dolls.. and this seem look pretty good..and also compare with my ones...the color seem look more better than mine one...

let's be blunt

that is user error, not camera error.

btw, there is obvious editing in the colors of those doll pictures.

oh ok..i know what u mean by dof is thinner now..i do read up the basic photography..but just some parts i am not very clear of...

Colours are easily changed / "enhanced" in post processing

cheers.

13. ## Re: Is this picture taken with ff camera?

wow...so different...how u change it ??

14. ## Re: Is this picture taken with ff camera?

15 minute job, because you could have really moved that doll forward:

1) bokehfy background - main step, had to make sure the edges didn't halo - basically gaussian blur + layer + erase.

if you get this right in-camera, this step can be skipped. which shortens everything else to a 5 minute job.

2) color balance tweaks to red side

3) layer a cross-processed layer on top, reduce opacity

4) sharpen the image

5) curves

6) vignetting, then erase the vignetting from the top area slightly.

hope this helps. you can make the difference in your photographs.

ok thank alot..as compare to my one and the link i posted early on...do u notice the details of doll seem difference??

what software u use to edit the images?

just push it down. a 500d can take wonderful pictures.
