wow didnt even know that unsharp mask exsisted. Crazy all the potentials and things you can do to an image in photoshop! thanks for the tips. for some reason when i use my d200 i use all the manual settings but when i use the d3100 i use pre set settings. lol need to get out of that. I finally decided to bring my 18-55 with me and im glad i did on this shoot. lmk what you think.
