Well, not really. But it will make your photographs better. I know what you're thinking. "White balance? Isn't that technical? Eyes. Glazing. Over." Don't worry, it's really simple to understand, just as easy to adjust, and it will make your photographs better.
Depth of field is a concept dear to the hearts of many photographers. Briefly, it means the depth of the pictured area that appears to be in focus. People describe this area as being shallow or deep. Some may refer to it as narrow or wide. The words don't matter, but the concept does.
MAKE has a story about an amazing pinhole camera made out of cigar box. Very, very cool. Here's a link to the Flickr photo set about it.
In other news, the site will be returning from hiatus in the new year. Thanks for your patience.
I was reading a discussion over at Flickr the other day about how shooting in RAW mode saved some under-exposed shots. Accepted wisdom seems to be that correcting under and over exposure is much easier/better with RAW than JPG. Without making any judgments, I decided to try it out and see if it was true.
I can't promise much (for now) other than that you'll be writing for (and helping to build the audience of) a PR6 blog with about 1,000 regular readers. Do you have something interesting to say about photography and want to share it with a larger audience? I'm mainly interested in original content authored by you or at least an original opinion about something written elsewhere. Photodoto is not a re-blog or a news regurgitation service. Other than that, there are no time commitments, no minimums or maximums, post only when you've got something interesting to write about that has something to do with photography. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
