Other than Adobe Photoshop, what's a simple software can I use to easily crop my photos for 3R and 4R printing?  Recently, I spent about 2 hours cropping my latest photos for printing using Microsoft Office Picture Manager.  When I got to the printers, I realized that 3R is 3.5 x 5 inches and not 3 x 5 inches, which is the default fixed aspect ratio in Picture Manager. That's about 150 photos that I have to redo!:-[

You need batch resizing software like PICASA,

the lens cap should snap fit into the front threads of the UV filter...  ganun yung sa case ko, i have Sunpak 67mm and 58mm UV filters, may thread din sa harap yung filters, kasya yung lens cap ;)

(btw, di pala ko expert!! :D  sharing experience lang ;D)

Hi!
Could somebody please recommend some basic books in digital photography?
I'm just new to the game and would like to read on the basics before I start with my classes with Jo Avila. BTW, Thanks Jo for the lead-on on the book. I was able to buy one today.

Also, can somebody tell me what program I can change my colored pics into Black and White? Thanks again. :)

Doc,

I will also teach you how to convert digital color images to b&w using Photoshop.  Konting hintay ka na lang. :D

Other books?  The book by Michael Freeman that I recommended to you is a goond one.  It's worth the effort to either look for it or to order it.

Basta I gave you the names of your three best friends at Fully Booked Greenhills.  Sila na ang bahala sa iyo :D

Cheers!

Hi everyone!

I am a noob and am just starting to take up photography as a hobby. I just bought a panasonic FZ30 based on numerous research sa internet and photography forums. Ask ko lang if there is a group of panasonic FZ users here who could give me tips on what settings is good for my camera. I have been practicing for two weeks na and feel na hindi ko pa nahahanap yung tamang way of using the camera.

Thanks again to everyone!

You mean like this??


tripod > 2~3 seconds > shoot then turn the Zoom ring either in or out depending on where you started.
HTH

masters, how do you do that zooming technique wherein the other parts are warped (ala-startreck) while the subject is in focus?

Newbie requests for advice:
i have a Canon 350D with the kit lens, a 50 mm f/1.8, and a 75 -300mm. I do not intend to go into professional photography - just to be able to take better photographs that are not boring. I am considering to buy a good tripod- even a used one as long as its sturdy. Any suggestions, where can I buy and roughly how much?
thanks in advance.

pano po mga sir kung nasa aircon room ka tapos labas ka bigla sa room, meron po fog yung lens and can't shoot properly kasi blurry yung kinalabasan, matagal pa naman mawala yung fog sa lens, any suggestions?

You'll have to wipe the lens and filter (preferably with a lens tissue or lens chamois).

Cheers!

35mm equivalent focal length of at least 80mm?

What's the context?

Cheers!

Jo,

It was a discussion on perspective distortion. It had something to do with the patient's nose appearing fine when the photograph was taken, but in the print it looked disproportionately large. A solution was then proposed, "1. Use a longer lens  setting - a 35 efl of at least 80 mm is about right, so that for a  normal-sized print viewed from a normal viewing distance, perspective looks correct. 2. Use the longest end of your zoom lens. For many, this is a 35 efl of 70 mm, which is just about enough."
I couldn't understand any of the above. ???

kamelot,
tama si sir Jo.  85mm focal length yun in 35mm format. 


maybe this link can explain it better:
