In this crazy world of photography, it’s fairly common to see some photographers who don’t even know some basic and minor aspects and principles, that are very critical when it comes to photography.

Short Notes to Remember
- For better results and bigger prints, work in 16 bit mode. When you’re done, convert to 8 bit. We cannot print 16 bit images yet.
- With HDR, it is recommended that you work with 32 bit files.
- Use 16 bit files when working with Black & White photography.
- We can only see 10 million colors.
