  • Replied in The original
    I had the awful privilege of three different learning curves - first, black and white film, for composition and learning how to maintain shadow detail; then color transparencies (if you think ...
  • Replied in The original
    The real takeaway you should have is, be very careful about the colors of the walls and curtains when photographing people.  This bit me in the butt several times before I realized that some ...
  • Replied in The original
    Exactly what I was hoping.  That's beautiful.  There's something called "gesture" that's used talking about photographs, and it can come from unusual light.  Yeah, it's reddish, but it's got a ...
  • Sometimes correcting a color cast bleeds the soul and gesture out of an image.  90% of the time I set my white balance to daylight when shooting raw, because incandescent light is in fact ...
  • Crazy steam vents, never seen that before.
  • Replied in Rain came
    Yeah, you know, I can't figure out which I like better.  I love when they're wet, but right now we've been dry for a long time so even though they're wet, they're not lush.  I'm out shooting once ...
  • My Fuji kit has been an XPro-1 plus a number of the prime lenses, and one zoom, the 10-24, since there weren't any prime lenses wider than the 14mm. But after running into a number of ...
  • Replied in Rain came
    Now this is more like it.  Heavy rain, then cleared to partial sun.  Used the on-camera flash quite a bit to get a little highlight in the drops. close up cutout from the image above... in almost ...
  • Yes, have both.  And they are VERY different lenses for different purposes.  The f1.2 is a fantastic portrait lens.  Seldom shoot it at f1.2 for that (if someone's in a 3/4 pose, you can have one ...
  • Too dry for too long, and I really prefer shooting the flowers when they're drenched looking (and the rain has hit today so I'm heading out to shoot...) but still some fun and a couple of nice prints.
  • Replied in Studio iris
    Thanks, Andrew. Only the very closest of the shots here really would have needed a macro.  And, if you've got one nice mildly close focusing lens, for 90% of stuff like this, a set of screw in ...
  • Replied in Studio iris
    Trying to finish out a series.  Iris are in raging bloom, and while I've been shooting some outdoors, decided to bring a few into the studio for some textural lighting.  These are all on black ...
  • yep. I went back and looked at several shots several times, couldn't figure out exactly what it was. My first reaction was, look, you can see fresnel artifacts.

  • I've worked with one on a travel shoot. Was surprised at how useful it really was. You can place highlights in a scene, or light from angles and directions that would be hard to do even with mono...

  • Suave, the problem is not on the sensor, it's somewhere in the system of glass over top of the sensor.

  • Dear JRkiny - I teach photo workshops, and know very, very well how to clean a sensor. Dust spots don't look at all like that. The closest you get are welded-dust spots (do you know what that...

  • I've seen this on almost every Nikon owned, not at f16, but when shooting macro and working at effective apertures of f32 or higher. Not as dense as what's shown, but visible in that specific...

  • Thanks.  That was a lesson in patience.  Clouds of different thicknesses were going over the sun, with periods of no clouds.  Every time the light changed, it was a different flower.  I think I ...
  • Had total knee replacement on my right knee 8 weeks ago (as of upcoming Tuesday.)  Haven't been out shooting, since the first couple weeks the pain was overwhelming, then the stiffness and total ...
