Photography Help

Fri Feb 13, 2009 2:56 am

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to get images onto Airliners.net for almost a year now, but have not gotten any on. I have narrowed it down to basically just being rejected for quality. Does this mean that the camera I have is not good enough? Does it have to do with experience? Does it have to do with camera settings? I have a Kodak Z712 IS, with 12x optical zoom. Unfortunately, this means that I cannot use extra lenses, so I am kind of limited in the zoom range. It has fairly high mp (7 I think). Is it just possible that I am doing something wrong with the camera, or may it just be that the camera just isn't good enough? I always size my photos to 1024x768, which is recommended. I am not so experienced so that could be part too. Here is a link to my pictures. Please comment on which pictures, if any, might be salvageable, and what faults you see. All responses and criticism are welcome.

Re-sizing to 1024x683 is better.

I use this workflow most of the time and I think it'll solve your problem

Some of my shots on here are made with a 4 year old Canon Powershot SD400 that is 5MP and 3x zoom. Your camera should therefore be fine for shots on here(with limits).

With cameras like yours and my Powershot noise is an issue. Always shoot at the lowest ISO. Also many of your shots are backlit and/or soft. Make sure you have a good workflow for processing the image before uploading.

Have you got your camera on the highest quality settings and in your editing software do you save at the highest quality?

you've got compression artefacts around the windows, registration, titles, etc.

If you don't already, set the compression to fine.

What exposure settings are you using? Try aperture (Av) at F8. If possible, keep to ISO64.... looking at reviews it's starting to get slightly grainy even at ISO100.

Thanks for all the help. Hopefully I will be able to get a picture on the site soon using these tips.
