Photo Q&A – Episode 1: Does Size Really Matter?

Photo Q&A – Episode 1: Does Size Really Matter?

By |2016-04-22T09:26:13+00:00Mar 29th, 2016|

I get photography and tech questions emailed to me and left as comments on my posts quite often, so I thought that it’d a good idea to start a new Photo Q&A video series where I field them for everyone to enjoy! The question for this first episode is one that I believe many photographers out there can relate to and it’s certainly worth tackling.

I hope you enjoy this new series. If you have questions of your own that you’d like to submit, please do so by leaving them as comments. Thanks so much!

    Awesome! The best camera is the one you already have. A few years ago I got to stop at the Grand Canyon to see it for the first time. All I had for a camera was the original iPad with retina display (3rd generation?). I look at those photos today and find them as good as my full frame camera shooting jpgs. iPhone-ography is now popping up in galleries. So, doesn’t matter what camera you have. It’s all about the fun. Enjoy the moment. Shoot it. Bring it home. Share.

      Exactly, Sherry! How can you enjoy where you are and who you’re with if you’re too focused on what you’re holding to take the photo? Well said!

      Great vantage point and framing.

    The Baths at Devil’s Bay, Virgin Gorda, British West Indies. Swam ashore from a boat so the only camera at risk was a Nikon Coolpix S2800. While a necessity at times like this, sometimes it’s just nice to go light. Couldn’t agree more that the best camera is the one you have with you. That afternoon was just for fun but provided four photos that are among the best I ever took with the 5dm3. So the general good rules of imagery apply everywhere and a good photo can be captured with a basic, non-pro camera. I sold the Coolpix when a phone upgrade to Samsung 5s gave even more and better. Thanks for posting this challenge at On1 Plus!

    Hi Brian ..I am a relatively new user to on1 and saw your sky photo kit which I purchased. I’ve followed all the videos and am excited to start experimenting. The fundamental and simple bit I’m having trouble with is how you get the overlay into the browsing strip on the bottom of the page. All the videos start with the overlay there. If I drag the preset down to the bottom it just covers my selected photo. So to distil the question…how can I take the preset and add it as a layer so I can work on the two images in layers??
    Regards Lawrence.
