PHOTO TRIVIA QUIZ OF THE WEEK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last week, we asked:
What year did Adobe Photoshop 1.0 first reach the marketplace?

The first, best answer - entered by BetterPhoto member Rebecca Savage is:
Adobe Photoshop 1.0, first reached the marketplace just over 15 years ago ... February 1990.

Editor's Note: Lots of correct answers! Here's more from Outdoor Photographer magazine's "20 Years of Photo Innovation" (June 2005 issue): "Thomas Knoll developed the roots of an image-editing technology while working on his Ph.D. ... Called Image Pro, the software was taken around to various companies in Silicon Valley until finally a company by the name of Adobe took interest ... Within less than 10 months of development, Adobe Photoshop 1.0 was released."

To see all answers to this question, visit:

And Now... This Week's Photo Trivia Question - Exposure ... By the Numbers - entered by BetterPhoto member Kerry Drager

This is a new take on Jim Miotke's previous quiz question: Two cameras are shooting from the same position, aimed at the same subject, and facing the same direction. One is set at f/4 and 1/125th sec., and the other is set at 1/15th sec. What would the latter camera's aperture (f/stop) need to be to produce identical exposures?

THIS WEEK'S PHOTO TIP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stabilizing Your Tripod ... by Robert L. Andersen
I use a shoulder bag for my camera gear. And I have discovered that when I'm set up and ready to shoot, it's really handy to just drape the strap over my tripod and use it to add extra stability for my shot. Also, the bag is really easy to access while it's hanging right there below the camera. View Robert's BetterPhoto Gallery

PHOTOGRAPHY Q&A - NEW THIS WEEK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEW QUESTION 1: Desert Photography Techniques
What special considerations are there for desert photography (landscapes)? I will be on vacation in Palm Springs, CA, in Sept. and want to get good photos of the desert landscape. I will also be visiting Joshua Tree National Park. What film speed is best - print film or slide film? Polarizer or not? Please advise. Thanks.
- Paul D. Carter

ANSWER 1:
In my film days, I used Velvia (50 ISO slide) because I like punchy colours. That's a personal preference only. You can use slow film because nothing's moving. Definitely a polarizer. Not only is it useful for the blue sky, but it also cuts the reflections from the sand and vegetation and lets the colours come through. Other considerations: Do everything you can to keep sand out of the camera, lenses and camera bag. Take things out only when you're about to use them. Wrap equipment in Ziploc bags. In short, pretend you're at the beach and you'll save yourself many dollars in repair bills.
- Kay Beausoleil

See Kay's Premium BetterPholio™

ANSWER 2:
Stick with late evening and early morning, and you may not need a polarizer. Between about 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., you might do well to stay in the pool, as the light is incredibly harsh.

NEW QUESTION 2: How to Shoot in Humid Conditions
How do you shoot in very humid weather to prevent clouding of the lens by unwanted moisture?
- Robert Raichelson

ANSWER 1:
Don't take the camera/lens directly from cool air-conditioning to hot humid outdoors. The moisture in the air condenses on the cool surfaces. Instead, keep it in the camera bag, or a plastic bag, and let the camera come up to temperature before exposing it to the humidity.

NEW QUESTION 3: Wedding Shoot: Videographer Vs. Photographer
I did a wedding last weekend, where there was also a videographer. She called me up yesterday, wanting about four of MY photos that I took during the same wedding - so she can put on her dvd and dvd cover. I've never done this before. Is this normal for a videographer to ask of a photographer? She wants me to email them to her. Please advise. Thanks!
- Lisa M. Austin

ANSWER 1:
Well ... I wouldn't think of it being normal for you to just "hand over" the files. She is going to be selling this DVD to this couple, so you should also get a "cut" for this because if she uses those 4 photos, that might result in a loss of 4 photos sold to the couple. How did she know what your photos even looked like??

NEW QUESTION 4: Backing Up Digital Files
Hello all, I am looking to establish a system to back up my digital negatives on my notebook and have so far been considering two options ... the first being an external DVD writer to burn the files to disk ... and the second being an external hard drive as backup. What is your opinion and/or experience in this area? I'm not sure what to do. Thanks.
- Mike

ANSWER 1:
If you're just going to back up your photos, then I would go with the DVD writer, because with the hard drive, if you run out of space, you're just out of luck. With a burner, you can just buy more DVDs.
- Brendan Knell

ANSWER 2:
It is a good idea to make two copies of each DVD. Keep one copy at home, and one copy outside your home in case of fire.
- Kari Høglund

See Kari's Premium BetterPholio™

ANSWER 3:
Kari, another option - instead of keeping one somewhere else - is to put it in a fireproof safe. Just make sure it's a good one.

NEW QUESTION 5: How to Get a Blurred Background
When using aperture setting 2.8, that would be a large aperture, and a f9 would be a small aperture. If this correct ("please read below") ... then how would one get a blurred background: Would one use the large or small aperture? Zoom tele or wide setting? Or just anywhere in-between? How far should subject be from camera, and how far behind the subject should the background be? I understand that different lenses will have different numbers, so I am just looking for in general answers. My lens is T:2.8-3.0 f=6-36mm
Thanks all!!
- Kevin D. Burns

ANSWER 1:
How far isn't an answer you can really be given. The general answer is to use a large aperture (low f/stop number) - the larger the more blur. The greater the distance from background, the more blur. The closer to the camera, the more blur. The longer the focal length, the more blur.
So stay down around f/4, fill the frame, and if your first thought is the background looks close, then move away from it. Practice till you learn to what to do beforehand.

NEW QUESTION 6: Pricing for a Friend's Wedding
A friend of mine has asked me to photograph her wedding. It will be casual, and she wants some of the usual shots: cutting the cake, hands and rings, etc. Then she just wants shots of the feel of the day. It will be an outside wedding by a lake. I have told her I will probably only shoot digital (D70), but take my N-90 just in case. She wants to pay me, and that is where I need help. I thought I would take the photos and then just burn them a CD and then they can take it to a printer and get what they want. What would be a good starting price? West Michigan area. I mainly shoot fine art so this would be my first wedding. Thanx.
- Robert Wilson

ANSWER 1:
Difficult to answer. You are being offered payment as a direct result of your equipment and the ability to operate it. As it seems you are eliminating 60 percent of the normal wedding photographers' duties (lab trips, proofs, albums, thank you cards, enlargements, editing, etc.), you may want to consider an hourly fee. $25.00 per hour? $50.00 per hour? $100.00 per hour? Don't forget to include the time for editing, arranging and burning the CD.
Regards
Gary
- GARY BERGER

See GARY 's Premium BetterPholio™

Visit atwdigital.com - GARY 's Deluxe BetterPholio™

ANSWER 2:
I did a wedding in March for a friend's daughter. They asked me to do it (I don't do weddings typically) and offered to pay me $500. All they wanted was a lot of photos(traditional and then lots of candids) on a CD that they could take and get printed themselves. Since this was my first (and probably only) wedding, I thought this was an OK price. However, after going through the images, I just didn't feel I could give them the images straight from the camera, because some needed lighting adjustments, composition adjustments, cropped, etc. I was at the church by 1:30 and didn't get done until almost 9:00 (which was partly my choice; it could have been done by 8:00), and I can't tell you how much time I spent working on the photos.
It was good practice and experience, but if I was a "busy" photographer, the $500 wouldn't have been enough. However, since I was just starting out, I felt compensated.
I think that it would be best to kind of estimate how long you will be there the day of the wedding and then, as Gary said, figure in the time it will take you to do any editing, etc., and burning to the CD, and then either quote her an hourly rate and give her an idea of how long you think it will take, and what your "worth" is. Then price it by the job.
I'm not sure how experienced you are in photography as a whole, but I think I would charge no less than $50/hour rate for the whole shabang, and I'm guessing that it will take a minimum of 5 hours for the wedding (pre and after shots), and depending on how advanced you are with editing skills, it could easily take you another 5-10 hours of editing. So you are looking at $500-$750 just to do the wedding and then she can take care of printing the prints, album, etc.

NEW QUESTION 7: Neutral Density Filter and 'Frothy' Water
I was told a neutral density filter will create a "frothy" look to my waterfall pictures. But how do I choose which one to use?
- lynda

ANSWER 1:
The reason it will give you the a frothy look is because it forces your camera to use a slower shutter speed, so a tripod is a must. About choosing a ND filter, it depends on how bright the scene is. So my guess would be to just choose a good medium, but that may be wrong. Or if your budget allows, you could buy a high one and a low one and one in the middle.
- Brendan Knell

ANSWER 2:
Hi Lynda,
Basically the ND filter is like a pair of sunglasses. They cut the light hitting the film much like sunglasses cut the light hitting your eyes. So for taking pictures, you can leave your lens open longer (use longer shutter times)to get the right amount of light on your film and that has the effect of making the water look misty, ethereal, frothy. They come in various qualities and densities. Tiffen, Hoya, B+W, there's more too. Tiffen are usually the most economical. They also come in stops. I'd go for a 3 stop. They might also be called .09. That's a good one to start with. Also make sure you know the size of your lens, because they come in different sizes - for example, my Canon 70-200 is a 77mm. Hope this helps.
- Joe Jarosz

Visit joejaroszphoto.com - Joe's Deluxe BetterPholio™

ANSWER 3:
Neutral density filters are rated by the amount of light reduction provided. Either as number of stops (each stop = 1/2 as much light) or by factor (each 0.10 = 1/3 stop).
For example, if your exposure is f/11 and 1/125, but you want a shutter speed of 1/8 without using a smaller aperture, then you need 4 stops (1.2 factor) of light reduction. You can do that with a single filter, or combine 2 or more filters that add up to 4 stops.

NEW QUESTION 8: SLR Camera Cleaning: Digital Vs. Film
I have read so much recently about cleaning the sensor in digital cameras that I began to wonder if I should clean the mirror I see when I have the lens off of my Rebel G? Is cleaning a film-based camera as touchy as cleaning a digital camera seems to be?
- Kathy

ANSWER 1:
The mirror is very delicate. It is easily scratched and the silvering can come off. Do not use lens cleaning solution or cloths/tissues on it ... just a gentle blower brush only. Remember that cleaning the mirror is not vital. Dust and fingerprints on the mirror have no effect on the image.

NEW QUESTION 9: Campfire Photography
I enjoy camping with my boys (4 and 5). At night, I let them roast marshmallows on the campfire. What settings should I shoot this on for it to turn out? I generally shoot Fuji ISO 200 ... but, of course, any recommendations would be appreciated.
- Fred S. MacKenzie

ANSWER 1:
At ISO 200, your boys will need to sit pretty close to the fire - as close as they can without being uncomfortable. Use your in-camera meter to get a reading off their reflected light ... not the light from the fire.
A shutter speed of at least 1/30 second will work hand-held if you are steady and can squeeze the shutter with very little movement. 1/15 sec or slower would be better, but would require a tripod and instructions to your subjects to remain perfectly still.
These guidelines should allow for an aperture setting with acceptable depth of field. The flames will over-expose a little, but you will be able to capture your subjects in the glow of the firelight and maintain detail.
Try to compose the shot with only a small portion of the flames in view. This will focus the attention on your sons enjoying a night of camping rather than just a shot of a campfire with a few dark silhouettes.
It's also wise to bracket these types of exposures over and under in 1/2 stops to be sure.

PHOTOGRAPHY Q&A - CONTINUING FROM PREVIOUS NEWSLETTER
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CONTINUING QUESTION 1: Is Photo Restoration Legal?
Can I do photo restoration copies without crossing the line of copyright infringement? I do a lot of work in PS and am frequently called upon to do photo restorations. I either have to scan or photograph the existing photo and then do the repairs and print a corrected version. I have read that photos either 50 or 75 years old do not need a copyright release to be copied, so I'm assuming those are safe, but what about ones that are more recent and have been damaged? So many people have tried to contact the original photographer for permission and find that they are no longer in business or just can't be found. My intent is not to copy someone else's work, only to repair a damaged family keepsake. I don't want to break any rules, so I figure this would be a good place to find an answer. Anyone have input on this one?
- Liza M. Franco

ANSWER 1:
Hi, Liza. I work for a photo lab here in Ohio and our digital lab does a lot of photo restorations. We usually tell the customers that the photograph needs to be the 75 years old, as a general rule. But, if an attempt has been made to contact the photographer and the photograph is fairly old, we let the customer sign a copyright release, which lets them take the responsibility of any copyright violations that may occur. You may be able to do the same. Hope this helps ...
- Nicole Kessel

ANSWER 2:
Nicole, is this a standard copy release or is there a specific kind for this purpose? I see companies that advertise this kind of work all the time but have never noticed anything about a copyright release and really started getting wondering if it was OK for me to be doing this kind of work. I like the way your lab does it, I think that is a great idea. Thanks for your help.
- Liza M. Franco

ANSWER 3:
Visit www.copyright.gov for more details - especially the Publications section. I work at Wolf Camera, and our policy is quite strict. There are heavy fines for copyright infringement. Essentially, if it's a professionally done photo (studio, wedding photog, Sears portrait, school portrait, etc.), you can't copy it. If they have a release signed by the photographer, then you can proceed. Beware of people making up their own fake releases. Images prior to 1978 - where the studio is out of business - we have them sign a form. Prior to 1938, no release is needed. See the Web site above for full info!
- Karl P

ANSWER 4:
It is just a standard copyright that we use for all copy purposes. If there is a stamp of some sort on it, we sometimes even try to call the photographer ourselves before it is OK'd. We have had many photographers give us the go-ahead to copy simply because they were so pleased that we actually contacted them. You will probably still want to check into the legal aspects of it all as Karl suggested. Better safe then sorry! Good Luck!
- Nicole Kessel

ANSWER 5:
Thanks, Nicole and Karl. It is a really touchy subject. Personally, as a photographer, if someone was just fixing a damaged photo that I had taken, I wouldn't mind in the least. I think there is a big difference between fixing damage and just outright copying someone's photo just to get around having to pay a studio for reprints. I'm sure we have all encountered those who have had portraits taken and then just automatically think the photos are then their property and they own the rights - not realizing that the copyright still belongs to the photographer. I deal with this all the time. I've gotten to the point of actually having clients sign a paper stating that this has been explained to them. I'll just proceed cautiously and try to check dates get them to sign a release as you've suggested. Thanks for your input.
