For the HNC the home study is £1,195 which isn't bad at all compared to a college or university that would charge £9,000 for tution...

    Beginner HDR Question

    I wouldn't recommend doing a -3, 0, +3 as the difference between the exposures is too great. If you need that much dynamic range it might be better doing -4, -2, 0, 2, 4 . I have personally tried doing 3 stops difference and it didn't work out for me. I would recommend that you do at the most...

    strangest thing you've ever photographed.

    The strangest or weirdest thing that I have photographed is myself. I have been doing photography as a hobby for like 8 years and have had no problems being behind the camera, but being in front of it doing my own portrait was one of the strangest and weirdest things I have done. I just felt...

    Thinking of 5D4 from 5D3 - Is it a no brainer?

    If the cost of betting the 5D4 is high for you then I'd seriously recommend that you rent the camera rather than jumping in then finding that you don't need it.

    Does shooting live view at sunset ruin the sensor?

    Probably an old question. I was wondering if shooting in live view with the sensor constantly exposed to the sun when doing sunsets, can it damage the sensor? I used to compose optically using the pentaprism but have found live view such a much better choice but am cautious about using it...

    Is going from printing A3+ to A2 really a big jump?

    Happy new year all! Last year I got an A3+ printer love it to bits. I could see that there is a difference from A3 to A2, but not such a huge difference going from A3+ to A2 and was wondering is it worth actually going for A2 when you are already printing at A3+?
