  • What with all the snow and clouds there have been some great sunsets and sunrises this winter around Boston, but with a baby it's been impossible to go out and take that many pictures so I ...
  • It probably depends on the tourist site.  Sure there were a lot of cameras in the Yosemite Valley and on the rim of the Grand Canyon, but not nearly as many walking around a major city (that's a ...
  • Not surprising. Smartphones are much more common than SLRs.  Twenty years ago 90% of people wouldn't have been taking pictures and now everyone does.
  • The D810 is by all accounts capable of amazing pictures. That means there are three real possibilities: 1) There is something wrong with your copy 2) There is something wrong with your technique 3) ...
  • Most people don't care about white balance. Perhaps a few more will now. That's got to be a good thing, right? Also, I see white and gold with my eyes all the way open... and if I squint I see ...
  • The richer version of me, i.e. hobbyist landscape shooter who has been happy with his 5d2 for about six years.  Would I like higher DR?  Of course.  Would I like it enough to abandon all of my ...
  • Here's a free news article from Forbes . They're allowing people to buy art that has been licensed in such a way that it is freely usable.  If you don't want people to use your art without paying ...
  • 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, ...
