She took this with a P&S???

Like I commented on the image, makes me want to throw out my DSLR.. do you think the rest of her images were taken with a P&S too? How can this even be possible?

Sheesh..

It's amazing what you can photoshop. I have an old friend who had a p&s and he took some AWESOME photos. Just wish I had the skills.

Yeah but.. the sharpness and lighting - I just don't understand LOL!

Point and shoots can perform great in perfect conditions. The lighting in these is great which allows the P&S to perform at optimal settings. There was no flash used, but we can't tell what she did for lighting...I take that back....looks like window lighting (check out the trees in the catchlights). ISO was 200, so that's why no noise which has always been my biggest problem with the P&S. She doesn't need to worry about the P&S lack of background blur because she has a backdrop (or has added on in PP). It's actually easier to nail focus with a P&S because they have much more DOF by default. Her settings show that she used automatic exposure settings.

Oh, and last, but most important....Photoshop is a powerful tool and can do a LOT!

i love photoshop! i'm so glad I can do what I can with it and there's still lots I know I can still do with it.

those pictures look awesome. goes to show that a P&S CAN take great photos... you just need pretty good lighting for it Smile i saw the window in the background. she must have pretty large windows or something.

I have taken awesome pictures with my P&S ... they're not bad cameras, they're just not as flexible as DSLRs.
