Photofocus Episode 90
Welcome to Episode Number 90 of Photofocus with Scott Bourne. Photofocus is the show devoted to your questions about anything photography related including gear, technique, locations, etc. Your questions will shape the direction of this show so be sure to send your questions to [email protected]. We will try to answer as many as we can but we get a lot of questions so we’ll try to take a collection of questions that represent a particular topic and present them together.
This week we kick things off with a question about red eye:
Question One – Red Eye
I know this is a basic question but I still have trouble with it. How do I stop or remove red eye? Ann Hillenbrand, London UK
Scott: Red eye is caused when the camera flash is close to the lens. The solution is to get the flash off the camera. Try bouncing the flash or use wireless or radio triggers to get the flash off the camera. The good news is that if you do have some images with red eye, many of the photo editing applications on the market have tools that let you quickly remove red-eye.
Question Two – Photomerge
I heard someone talking about “photomerge.” What is that exactly? David Spear, New York, NY
Scott: This term is normally used to describe a process in photo editing software such as Photoshop where you are merging two or more photographs together to build a panorama.

I’ve given away lots of cameras. Amongst the most popular has always been the Canon 5D MK II. When my friends at Adorama got together with me saying they wanted to participate in one of my contests, we looked at what might be a popular prize. We considered the Nikon D700, but you can’t buy […]
