I think it depends on the degree of processing your buddy provided. If he did some simple color correction, I think it's kosher to omit his name. But if he did some major altercations, I think it would be best to credit him at the risk of things looking "busy"!

Over editing my images in post. Sometimes I'll spend hours tweaking an image, only to realize at the end of it that it's a little too over the top.

Wesley Walford created a new topic ' Ready to develop new skills' in the forum. 19 minutes ago

Hi All

I am new to photographytalk.com, I am looking forward to developing new skills through the forum. Very eager to get some constructive criticism on my photography.

I grew up in South Africa and developed a love for photography from a young age starting with a simple film camera. Since then I have had a few point and shoots for general travel photography. I then decided to do more than travel photography, so I bought a Canon 550D to learn about DSLR's. I have now bought a Canon 7DMKII with the intent to do more wildlife and sport photography. I still do some landscape photography but aim to improve my wildlife and sports techniques now.

Appreciate comments. Thanks

srubio77 replied to the topic 'Noise Bad and Grain Sometimes Good?' in the forum. 28 minutes ago

When it comes to whether digital noise is acceptable or on par with film grain is a matter of personal taste. I prefer to add noise in post and capture as much detail as possible in my initial shots. One bothersome part about a noisy photograph is the color of "color noise" (when you have discolored pixels throughout your image). This picture that I found on google illustrates what I mean pretty well. To me, it's much less appealing than the grittiness you get with film grain.

I think learning about photography goes hand in hand with making your first serious camera purchase. I suggest the Canon Rebel. It's a reasonably priced DSLR that allows you to experiment with lenses and even video if you so choose.

Agree. Don't know much about Nikon, but I've used Canon products for quite some time and I can confirm that the Rebel is a solid choice for beginners.
