  • You're defending the hyperbole. It's hyperbole. It may be a great camera, but the specs don't make it seem like the greatest imaging device in the history of our species, the pictures don't make ...
  • Yes, but when the claim is "the greatest imaging device in the history of our species" category is rightfully ignored. If you want to stick to a category, you have to say "the greatest imaging device ...
  • Replied in More hyperbole
    There are features of my 10 year old flip phone camera that can't be beaten, but it doesn't make it "the greatest imaging device in the history of our species." Beating on one or two specs isn't ...
  • Nothing about the specs makes me think, "greatest imaging device in the history of our species"
  • Bad photographs don't ruin a wedding.  Photographers can ruin a wedding by acting more important than the bride, the groom, or the guests, but simply taking bad pictures only ruins the pictures. ...
  • I fail to see how the recipient of this letter will become an enthusiastic advocate of expensive wedding photography. First, there's no mention of what a $5000 photographer does that makes her ...
  • If you had stopped after your first paragraph it would have been fine.  The rest was a sales pitch in the guise of bad advice.  Not everyone can afford or appreciate $1000+ on wedding photographs, ...
  • Turns out she doesn't like the flash, even when bounced.  Great suggestion for when she's older, though.  Thanks!
  • Created discussions Suggestions for lighting baby
    I have a 6 week old daughter and am wondering if anyone has good suggestions on lighting techniques (or links/book recommendations). I don't have much in the way of studio lighting--I do have a ...
  • You're right to be surprised: Canon: http://www.canonpricewatch.com/ Nikon: http://www.nikonpricewatch.com/ General computer stuff: http://www.pricewatch.com/ And there's a whole bunch more: http:/ ...
  • Sorry.  Confused time shifting and format shifting .  This is clearly format shifting.  I can't say that printing out something available for free on the internet is definitely fair use, but I can ...
  • Replied in Worth the $25
    A legitimate copy can be purchased here .
  • I would guess that this isn't so much a free book as a pirated one.  I got the purchased, printed version as a gift from my wife a few years back and can say that it was worth the price she paid, ...
  • Perhaps instead of taking slight at his comment you should have taken it to heart and re-read the paragraph in question, which you did not understand. Since you seem uninterested in doing so, I ...
  • 1)  Is his work copyrighted?  Yes. 2)  Does he have the legal right to request five dollars for printing it out?  Yes. 3)  Does he have the legal right to require five dollars for printing it out? ...
  • I sometimes buy things from a website that offers a magazine deal when you buy something.  Of the three subscriptions to photography magazines I like PP the best; I wouldn't pay cover price for ...
  • You can get great photos with a kit lens and a cheap DSLR.  There are some things that pair won't allow you to do and in some cases it can be accomplished merely by upgrading the lens.  It really ...
  • Not that rare, but we luckily don't live directly on the connector street.  This is only a problem when we're walking down that street. How does flipping off a bad driver accomplish anything?  It's ...
  • I guess I was distinguishing two things: 1) Taking photo walks with my wife, most of which are uneventful.  Occasionally someone will honk at us/almost run us over/yells profanity at us for no ...
  • If too much free time includes walking around taking pictures of my newborn while we walk around the neighborhood, then yes.  I don't go out of my way to take pictures of aggressive drivers, ...
