Correct me if I am wrong but I thought that in raw no in camera sharpening is done at all hence the need to do it post processing. The settings that the camera has to adjust for sharpening is for the jpeg picture?

And yes sharpening can go along way but definately gotta be careful not to over do it as halos appear and you also have to worry about the image after you resize it. It can magnify the halo appearance.

just about anything needs sharpening once you've resized it for the screen.

Sharpening is the last thing you should do, after all the other editing and any resizing.

hey fellow ontarian!
as far as I know when the camera is in raw no extra "processes" are done such as more sharpening.... that is left up to the program you process it with. I know in photoshop it will automatically sharpen them a bit unless you turn that feature off.
since the jpg is mostly processed in camera, what ever increases for example sharpness will be done by the camera.
think raw to be like the old film negatives, it will be only as sharp as your optical focus... you do the majority of processing in photoshop.

hope this makes sense?

I quickly took this one of my eldest daughter, whilst she was napping with couch cushions on the floor. Just don't tell her it's here, will you? lol. Don't ask why, I've given up lol. She doesn't have a mohawk, she just has some Indie style that's all the rage... It was 800 f3.5 and 1/80
there is absolutely nothing wrong with the sharpness of this shot! it is brilliant (that term is still used down under? )
keep up the great work, practice practice practice.

as far as a new camera, save the money for the k5. I want to get one also some day. it seems to be a bigger step forward then many models since my k10 was made

cheers

I actually have to do some baby photos today of a friends 3 month old, so I'll certainly get some practice. Just glad he can't run off anywhere just yet! lol.

I do't charge for any of my work, not until I feel I can produce a consistent quality anyway. However if it is commercial (Start up home businesses) I usually do photos in trade. These people can't afford a real professional and it gives me some good practise so it's a win win!!

And here's my favourite shot of bubs. Yes I was naughty and took it at 2.2, but 1/200 and 800 ISO. It turned out the way I hoped

Thanks Eric

Yeah I'm a real edge of my seat kind of girl sometimes Chex lol. I love the shallow dof on this shot as well, I think it emphasises the baby softness that is so appealing, well to me anyway lol.

Awww thanks Tommo, I am planning on keeping at it. I adore photography

I took that photo on Sunday. And it was natural light, he was laying on a couch, with the couches back to the window.

Thank you
