New to the whole realm of photography, but I'd like to get more involved with it. I mainly just want to know which digital cameras are used for the following pictures, and if anything special was done (various things with shudder speed or something), etc: First pic was taken from the picture thread started a few days ago: Is that background color altered in photoshop? Something tinkered with on the camera? Or is it just the time of day it was taken? It looks awesome. This is one from a car site (obviously): I love how smooth, crisp and clean the picture is. Again, the background color and overall feel of the picture seems photoshopped, but might not be. Just curious what megapixel of camera is needed to take quality pictures like this, or what special settings and what not need to be adjusted on the camera. Thanks!
