Got a macro lens for my XTi, Canon 100mm 2.8. Little difficult to get used to, very narrow depth of field! Really lost some color on the upload Any suggestions welcome
OK, excellent start for that 100mm Macro!Got a macro lens for my XTi, Canon 100mm 2.8. Little difficult to get used to, very narrow depth of field! Really lost some color on the upload Any suggestions welcome
Yes, they were resized before I uploaded them. ThanksBS, Did you resize the photo before upload? if not that is probably what happened to the color, I have seen it do that.
Nice shots, good start.
Yes, Canon has their own. Ill have to give it a try.Bigstick, I do know what you mean. My pictures look different in photoshop and in IE or any other picture viewer. It has something to do with the settings in photoshop. To get around this I use nikon capture to process the raw photos. Does canon have an equivalent program? If so you may want to check that out.
I think that very well may be what it is. Ill have to check the camera settings. But that will be a PITA to switch back and forth. If you want to print it then the workspace will have to change correct? Maybe next time I will just add a little hue/saturation and see if that works.the loss of color might be due to colorspace issues. I use Adobe RGB as my workspace, but a lot of web stuff is in sRGB which doesn't have as wide a gamut. If the photo is destined for web use, you can start in sRGB and then your expectations aren't crushed. And don't forget to bump saturation to compensate in photoshop: image>adjustments>hue/saturation
Depends on what you mean by "wasn't there." Film type, or sensor, white balance, etc etc are all interpretations of the light that is objectively there. If you make a setting error, you can compensate using saturation to get back what was lost. I agree that it looks terrible if you are "adding something something that wasn't there," but not all saturation use does this.Jeff,
4. Do NOT add something that wasn't there to begin with. Never understood why people would recommend to add Saturation. Calibrate / use sRGB in Adobe Photoshop and you will get output that will look the same via Internet Browser.
Simple as that !
I agree with that statement !I agree that it looks terrible if you are "adding something something that wasn't there,"
Scanning Film vs. Digital ... two different animals my friendConcrete example: I used a low saturation slide film for a long time before switching to Fuji Provia (before going digital). When I scanned these slides, I'd need to bump saturation so that the images looked like the actual scene, i.e. I used saturation to return what was "already there."
His issue has nothing to do with saturation issue. It is Adobe RGB / sRGB / Monitor Calibration issue and I can bet my left hand on it. Have seen that same question many, many times on every single photography forum I frequent on daily basis.BigSticks raw>jpg/colorspace issues/whatever seems a lot more like this.
Overrated!? Hardly - Have a look at figure 2 on this site:(RAW is overrated and totally unnecessary with the exception of a few kinds of situations).
