I had a little free time to mess around with the camera/photoshop today. I found a tutorial to get the Dave Hill look (www.davehillphoto.com) a little while back and had been wanting to give it a shot. As expected, it's far from the effect he has with his photos, but that's why I'm here, right? Hopefully some of you Photoshop gurus can point me in the right direction.
I realize the photo isn't a great one to start with -- nothing seems to be in crisp focus. Albeit, I was using the kit lens, I should expect the focus to be better. Is there a way to set up the camera so it will autofocus while on the timer setting? I was guesstimating on where I would be standing, held my hand at that point, then focussed on it. I was standing just out of reach of the camera to press the shutter button with my head in the right position. Surely there's a better way.
My monitor is in serious need of calibration, so I might just have to wait until later to make a real attempt at this. Anyways, critique is wanted and welcome -- The good, the bad, anything in between. Thanks in advance for the help!
