Todays Tip – Photo Quality

Todays tip –  21st March 2012

What sort of digital camera have you got? Is it a small one or a big DSLR or even your iPhone. Well today I’m talking about thee image size your camera produces when it takes a photo. Your camera is to be told by you what settings to use, how much light its taking in to produce the perfect exposed image,the speed at which the shutter is to open and close at etc. But what you have to realize is that you have to put this info into the camera first it doesn’t just know what you want and takes what you have imagined in your head.

So lets start todays tip. 

Firstly you need to route through your settings to find your image or picture resolution(picture quality). Most cameras today have settings to change the different quality/image sizes. When you select a lower quality you will get to take more photos, but in-fact what happens then is you go to print that amazing photo you took of your granny who has passed away and turns out the quality you took the photo at was to ”low” to get your photograph blown up and printed.

So by lowering your image quality you’re lowering your chances of printing a good quality photo when comes to printing. My advice would be to put your image quality to the ”biggest size” and buy either a second memory card or buy a bigger memory card. This may seem like your wasting money on silly little cards but in fact you’re not. It’s a small investment if you are anyway serious about your photos.

Tip Summary – Picture quality to the max – Buy a bigger memory card or buy a second one. And never delete photos, keep them it costs nothing and back them up on a DVD or CD.

Kilcock Online Radio – Launch Day 17th March 2012

Kilcock Online Radio

Kilcock has now got its very own online radio station. Its for online users and people with smart phones that can listen to the station while on the go. This was created and launched by Stephen Mc Donagh who lives in Kilcock and is a DJ but a radio & broadcast student in Dublin.

This will give Kilcock a voice and people who live out abroad to keep in touch with whats going on around the town.

I would like to wish Stephen and others who may in time get involved in the running of this great idea for the community of Kilcock the very best of luck from Darren Byrne Photography.
