Lesson 6

Group photography using a digital camera

 

Group pictures, a problem of resolution? If you need the details of peoples faces your camera may not be able to capture such fine details. Always set your resolution to as high as possible for group pictures. It might be worth using a higher quality file format such as TIFF or RAW for important group shots.


If you use low resolution settings the individual faces may appear blocky when you zoom in to look at them
