As far as I am concerned whether it is a Casio



or Canon





They are both similar with similar specs.

The important thing here in Ben's pictureis the style of the image and lighting (which I admit I know nothing about).

Luckily I bought a Pentax because you canpoint the camera at something and take a world class image that everyone wants as a screensaver - or a Time magazine cover, isn't that right Intested_Observer?.

Ben, another beautiful shot.

You are right..It was my pre Canon G5 which came after my Casio which I forgot was stolen on my trip to Egypt...Now that was 2003...That's even more impressive..Thanks for reminding me. I really loved that Casio even more than the Canon G5 which I still own with my Fuji F30...

Thanks



Here is another Casio photo...

I'd say a pro camera is any camera that is used by a pro.

And an amature camera is any camera used by a non pro.

So a canon 1ds (9000$ body ) is just an amature camera if used by a hobyist.
And a Holga (6$ piece of plactic) is a pro camera if used by someone who is a professional.

Ben

I have to ask you about those shots. I know nothing about studio lighting and work mainly with natural light or a simple external flash to fill in when shooting daylight and so forth.

I appreciate all pro imagry has pp to ensure the EXACT look the photographer is looking for. Is there much post processing to achieve this sort of image or is it 90% out of the camera?

I understand that the flash/lighting is set to once side to have half the face in shadow, but is it totally dark out of the camera or PP to ensure total contrast.

I have seen this style of shot and would like to try it sometime just for fun and was not sure how it is achieved.

I don't normally do much PP with my images, usually just straighten horizons, adjust levels a fraction to enhance contrast and maybe up the saturation a tweak. My attempts at Unsharpen Mask are not good, even using your settings that you posted doesn't give me much improvement so I rarely if ever sharpen my images.
