Tim Cooper's Photo Circle

Thank you for checking out Photo Circle! Here you will find a social network, a classroom, a photo club and most of all a fun space to share and grow your love and knowledge of photography.


It's pretty basic: as you look around this home page, you will see that there are different avenues to take to grow your knowledge of photography. For example, you can get a photo or digital question answered. Just click on the clipboard to you left and enter a question in the title field. Tim will get back to you, posting all answers on the PHOTO Q&A page. At the Photo Q & A page you can also research answers to questions others have asked. Hopefully, over time, your inquisitiveness will result in a vast lexicon of information that we will all be able to use.

Here at Photo Circle, you can also get feedback sharing your work with other Photo Circle Members and with Tim. Check in often, as as you can learn from Tim's CRITIQUE OF THE WEEK of a selected member's submitted work (one or two images) as a way of highlighting the good points of the image as well as making suggestions for improvement. Also, by signing up to Photo Circle, you will create your own profile page (much like on Facebook), where you will be able to upload your latest work for all to view and SHARE. Then, your Photo Circle peers can review and comment on your work or vice versa. Exchanging feedback is a great way to learn and grow, so to get the most out of Photo Circle, make sure to interact with each other and partake in the dialogue!

Another way to keep up growing your photo knowledge, is to review Tim's online TUTORIALS. Over the next coming months, Tim will be updating this site with instructional clips that you can use to learn a new little Photoshop or Lightroom trick, for example. This is a great way to get a sense of the in-depth information available to you with one of Tim's DVD's. It's also a fantastic way to get a sense of his teaching style if you are interested in one of his WORKSHOPS.

And, finally Tim hopes to keep inspiring and encouraging you to work on your photography skills by providing a straightforward and friendly space here at Photo Circle. It's all about us continuing to learn.... while having some fun!

Tim Cooper commented on Ken's blog post How large can I print from a compact sensor, 16MP camera?
"Hi Ken, I think that chart is a reasonable place to start. I would say a print at 40x60 from a 16 megapixel camera would just fine. Not great, but fine. There are several variables that contribute to how a large print will appear. First of all not,…"

How large can I print from a compact sensor, 16MP camera?

I have a client interested in some large format prints of my images, like 40x60 inches.  I have a Nikon D7000 with native resolution of 4928x3264=16 megapixels.  Question is, how far can I enlarge these images through printing without starting to see pixelization or other digital noise?  This baseline image for this question would be an image that has not been cropped below 16MP and of course not over-processed to be susceptible to digital noise, such as brightening shadows too much.  Is there…See More
