[QUOTE=deanimator;2783094]Hey Wombler. I wouldn’t pay too much attention to that. Chromatic aberration is inherent in all lenses to a degree. Best option in most cases is to use an aperture near the middle of the range, say F 8. Any smaller and the image will start to get soft. It can be dealt with in Photoshop or Lightroom very easily as they have camera and lens profiles which will correct it near perfectly. And a polariser? Well…some like them, some don’t. Useful in some situations to reduce reflections which can improve color a bit. Most pros I know don’t use them[/QUOTE]
I’ve just checked the photos I took and I’d already set it at f8 so I guess I hit the sweet spot. Haze was a bit of a problem at the Grand Canyon when you’re taking shots over such large distances but I was pretty happy with most of my photos and I think I made the best of it given that we were only there for two nights.
That’s some very useful advice though and it shows you can’t believe all you read.
I used to do photo restoration quite a lot so I could spend ages enhancing photos if I wanted to but ATM I prefer the challenge of getting as much as possible right in camera, which is probably just as well as I never seem to get the time to edit them.
I took about 1600 photos too and most of them were excellent so it would take me long enough even selecting the best shots let alone enhancing them further.
If I can get my basic camera skills up to a level that I think is good then I’ll be happy and might start dabbling more with photo editing at that stage.
I love your stuff on Facebook BTW, stunning photos.
