  • Before you spend a lot of money, pay attention to tedolf's advice in the first answer.  You will be astonished at the way a tripod can improve ALL your lenses at once.  If you have not used one, ...
  • Looks to me like something that can be easily accomplished with a good "curves" tool in any of several programs.
  • Terrible advice, just terrible. Specific filters serve useful specific functions, but protection is not one of them. In over 40 years of photography with SLRs and now DSLRs, I have never seen a ...
  • I can't understand why people aren't lining up to work for a boss with your attitude to employees.
  • Absolutely correct. The issue is not a camera issue at all; it is an issue of unrealistic expectations of the technology, and a misunderstanding of what makes a good quality image. If you were a ...
  • I use Aperture priority most of the time and compensate a couple of shots in whichever direction (more or less exposure) I expect my problems will lie - essentially bracketing in one direction ...
  • One doesn't need a fast lens until one encounters the need.  A trite answer, perhaps, but if you have never felt the need for control of DOF, or you have never run into shutter speeds too slow for ...
  • Wow, what a narcissistic, defensive, self-important response.  I suggest you don't post on this website for a long time.
  • It is absolutely possible to remove a color cast if you understand how to use a good photo editing program such as Photoshop.  It is also possible to do a custom white balance in the camera itself ...
  • Could no longer resist my two cent's worth. Only someone who did not know how to process Raw files would even contemplate the idea that "Fine Jpeg is the new Raw".  If Jpeg is good enough for you, ...
  • Over 40 years ago I got involved in a group that created a co-operative darkroom in which I spent way too much time in spooky red light waiting for stinky chemicals to do their thing, and then ...
  • There is no substitute for learning to understand how your meter works in its various modes, and how to control your exposure for the intended subject. THAT is how you have to work in varied light ...
  • There is nothing that can not be done with either system.  There is no reason to prefer one over the other except personal preference, so pick the one you prefer and enjoy it for the rest of your ...
  • I don't have Pixpeepitus, but I do measurebate a lot.
  • Rather than trying to get pictures of "cliche" spots that others have already photographed many times, why not just take pictures of wherever YOU decide to go while you are there.  The key to good ...
  • So .... any comment or explanation you might want to make on the over processed material in your Flickr collection, or is personal attack your limit for wit and rhetoric?
  • Priceless! Although, I would include the paragraphs that follow which continue the descent into confused semantic rambling. I envision small wisps of smoke beginning to rise. Just makes me want to ...
  • Well, I couldn't resist and took a look at your gallery.  I bet it's getting more traffic than usual; maybe that explains the hyperbole and absurd logic - get some hits. Anyway, for a guy that gets ...
  • Another vote for those who are suggesting your belief that a DSLR is the solution to your photographic problems may not be correct.  It may very well be ONE solution, but there are other cameras ...
  • Replied in Some of us...
    What a load of B... S... No one can object to the desire to try to avoid Post Processing as a personal method.  Everyone should object to self righteous name calling of someone else's method. "Prot ...
