Trying to take pictures of my art work

I am trying to photograph drawings so that I can put them on my website. However, the drawings are mostly on white paper. I cannot get the background to photo as white. They are greying out. Is there any way to get a true likeness of the drawing?

How to take best pictures.


1. The best pictures can be taken with a tripod and using self timer or the remote control of the camera.

2. Some people think that the best picture can be taken with suddenly pressing the shutter. In reality it is not true. So the best pictures can only be taken with two steps. First, pressing half way and without not shaking the camera continuing on pressing the shutter. At last the camera takes picture. But a good photographer does not know the moment of taking the picture. He/She only knows and concentrates on not shaking the camera.

3. Best pictures can only be taken with an artistic point of view. Best photographers place the subjects to the most estetic point and the best estetic position.

4. Best pictures can only be taken without using the flash.

5. Best pictures can only be taken at the Golden Hour time. Golden Hour is the time period, starting with the Sun rise and ends after an hour. Second Golden Hour starts before an hour of Sun Set and ends with the Sun Set.

6. Best pictures can only be taken by a best photographer so you can never see a best photographer's portrait as a best picture.

7. Best pictures can not be taken with a most expensive camera but can be taken by a best working amateur photographer.

8. Best pictures can not be taken by professionals but can be taken by the professional amateurs.

9. Best pictures can only be taken with the camera which has a greater sensor size.

10. Best pictures can only be taken with a natural view of the objects.

What is good setting ?


That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and what you want that picture to convey to the viewer. Good settings for a portrait are unlikely to be good settings for a landscape, for example. The settings one photographer chooses for a particular picture may not be the same settings another photographer chooses for a picture of the same subject.

As smart as the camera is, it doesn't know what you're trying to do.

I want to take a picture that is focused on the subject, while everything else in the picture is blurry


What you want is a limited depth of field. There are three factors that control the depth of field: subject distance, lens focal length, and lens aperture. The greater the distance, the wider the DoF. The shorter the lens, the greater the DoF. The smaller the aperture, the greater the DoF.

One problem with compact cameras is that they have very small sensors. This means that they have short lenses. And short lenses mean they have wide depth of field. This is often an advantage, in that more of the scene is in focus. Unfortunately, this works against you when you don't want a wide DoF.

At the short end, the S2's lens focal length is 6mm. This will put just about everything in focus. Even at the other end, the focal length is 72mm. With a 35mm film camera, most portrait photographers use lenses at least 85mm in focal length in an attempt to minimize DoF to draw attention to the face and blur the background.

Unfortunately, the best you'll be able to do is to set the camera to the portrait mode, get as close to the subject as possible, and zoom in as much as possible. I realize the last two conflict with each other, you'll just have to find the proper balance for whatever you're photographing.

Hello am san i want to buy a camera, bcoz am very much passionnet abt camera. and i want to choose a proffesnal as a still photograher. so plz sujject me a good camera for use to me


Digital or film it is only about 20% camera. About 30% lens quality and 50% person behind the camera. Having said that, pick a moderate priced camera, either film or digital and learn how to use all the functions of that camera. Learn things like DOF (depth of field), AoV (Angle of View), aperture, shbutter speed and most imporatntly Light and its characteristics and how perture and shutter speed interplay with Light. Professional photographers know how to use light and how to control it. Take platy of pictures, take more pics, ask for HONEST critisizem about your work from others. take 2 or more shots of the same subject using different camera settings and see what appeals to you or what achieves what you are trying to portray. Then taake more photos. Take a photography calss from local colledge, photoclub, etc. Shoot more pictures. Only Experience can make you a better tha good Photographer. Patience and practice...practice and patience! Good Luck!

Does this camera use a memory card? If so, try using a separate card reader to download your pictures.

Iam having problems trying to look at the pictures I have taken


RTFM! Your camera came with a manual and probably a CD when it left Kodak's warehouse. You can download a PDF file of the manual and probably a copy of the CD from Kodak's website. Their manuals are very good and assume that you have little or no photographic knowledge, but they also don't show you how to become a professional photographer overnight. But they WILL show you how to use the controls!

Is sandisk memory stickProDuo4GB ok to use on my Cybershot camera


Picture quality depends on camera and photographer's skills.
Memory cared / stick will store data in digital form and thats all an it has nothing to do with picture quality.
So rest assured about memory stick and take good snaps in your trip.
Have a nice time.

Hello Michaela1,

There are a few things I can recommend:

1. Please check your card on some other camera to make sure the media is alright.

2. I am not sure if you take the SD card out of the camera and put it into a card reader (stand alone, in your laptop/PC) to read the images. As I understand, you first took out the card and then put it back into the camera to read from the camera once it did not work in the card reader. However, there are issues with doing both. I will outline them below.
  • Card Reader: At times, reading a card in a card reader will mess it up and it will remain unusable in the camera even if it displays photographs on camera LCD. Please note, this will happen even if you have only viewed the photographs on your computer and not saved them to your hard drive/media. The card will most definitely not work in camera if you delete photographs from the card or edit them on the card. The only solution to this is to format that card IN the Camera. The manual has instructions for the same.
  • In Camera: Other times, you may have connected the camera through the USB cable to a computer with the card in the camera. This problem may crop up IF you used your computer to delete images from the card whilst it was IN the camera. Again, the solution is to format the card. IN the camera, not from the PC.
3. Whether you use the USB cable or take out the card and put it into a card reader to save your photographs, always repeat ALWAYS format your card in the camera after transferring your photographs. This ensures card will not malfunction unless the media is corrupt. This also has the added benefit of not having the same photographs a few times over.

4. Try not to leave your images in the card after taking photographs. Try to save them to your PC at the earliest opportunity. Format after-wards (I can not repeat this point enough).

5. Use multiple cards of smaller capacity. They are cheaper to buy. Even if you lose one card to a mal-function, you still have photographs on others.

I hope this helps.
