    DefaultGood camera versus cheap camera.

    Do they really make a difference or is it the way I take the pics.

    I have a cheap point and shot. My son has a new fancy one and takes lovely pics.
    Corys camera.


    one from mine.I know the head shot is better, but I don't have on on file.


    In the black and white theme I have my best shot of Erns. I have no idea what over exposed is so will try and find out.



    You can see the difference between Erns and Lindas beautiful shot of her black boy Magnum the black and white theme.
    TIA

    I've taken great shots with a crappy point and shoot and horrendous shots with my $1200 dslr because I used the wrong settings.

    I have no idea what over exposed is so will try and find out.
    I highly recommend going through this lesson on exposure by Monnie...

    Overexposed means you have allowed too much light onto the picture. Look at the white parts on Ernie's face, and the pot behind him. They are totally white with no details left in the white area. We call that "blowout".

    I couldn't understand why the pot which is terracota went white.

    My camera doesn't have many settings, so I think it is the sun.

    Willcheck Monnies thread.

    Thanks guys.

    or your flash... I'm unable to view the EXIF data of the image to see what settings you used.

    It is automatic. It really is a cheap camera.4.0 mega pixel one from a company called Dick Smith.

    It was a sunny day and I had the flash on.


    I am going to start another post as I am about to hijack my own one. ;D
