Doris, the Digital cameras, in the price range 5 to 10 thousand range are med.
format Professional cameras... That can capture a 18 mega byte file to make a
decent wall portrait. Not That I expect you would understand.. I am sure you are
happy with the cheap models, Only that when it's a wedding pics or portrait pics
you want, you come to professionals don't you?
there are some lower priced digital cameras that take good snap shots, cameras
that take pics that snap are professional. And yes, I have seen the pics of
irises, and no , there is no good rule of thirds shown, everything is centered,
pics taken during mid day give a flat light, which gives you a flat picture.
However when used properly.. you can make the cheaper cameras make outstanding
You have to think ahead before you take the shot and apply some knowledge, then
take the shot..
I stress this to students..
Some take the shot first , thinking they can fix it in photo shop later
And some are just stubborn, arrogant, know-it-all and ignorant..
