  • "A thorough course in art criticism" seems to me to be than antithesis of what should constitute the knowledge base of a photographer. If a person is steeped in the lore of art criticism, he is ...
  • For those that are interested in ballet shots, here is a good example of how it should be done: Some good ballet images
  • Replied in 5Dsr workflow
    This is interesting....  Does this mean that the 1.3 and 1.6 crop modes are NOT implemented at the RAW level ??  You always get a 50 mpix RAW file no matter what crop you specify ??  If that is ...
  • Replied in Ballet shot
    You do indeed have the sense of dance motion timing. I shoot only raw - to allow easy correction of exposure. The only sharpening I do is on the full image with USM(20,50,0) in photoshop. This is ...
  • Replied in Ballet shot
    Good shots from the production.  You do have the magic touch of good timing ... most important for any dance photography. Just a couple of suggestions.... 1. try to shoot between 1/125 and 1//400 ...
  • As the title of the article says.... re-visit core values. A "visit" is usually a short term encounter.

    It would be nice and interesting if Hasselblad would actually compete with Pentax and...

  • It all depends upon what stage work you do and how you can shoot.  I shoot theatre, dance, and music with "everything" 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.4 85mm 1.2, 135mm F2, 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8 and 300mm 2.8. Si ...
  • As far as I can see, the 5DS "counters" the D810.  The recently speculated D850 may be Nikon's counter counter.  All of this is certainly fun to watch. Certainly competition causes faster evolution ...
  • Replied in Really?
    A simple example.   Shoot 500 images of a ballet performance with strongly varying light ... this is usually done in manual exposure mode.  Go through the raw images (I use Adobe bridge) and ...
  • Replied in wrong
    Indeed, stock agencies were almost completely "slide" based one way or the other ... of course many local stock agencies printed yearly stock catalogue book as well It was convenient for you to ...
  • I have never, in any post, said that is "all or nothing". I have granted that, on occasion, exif can be useful knowledge. I have also cited (as below) that exif info might be useful when dealing ...
  • With the three images I showed, what I did to "Make a Photo" is all that is important.   In each case, care had to be taken to set up the photo, get the subject in the right position, get me in ...
  • Replied in wrong
    Depends upon what area of commercial photography you are talking about.Most commercial photographers used an appropriate mixture of B&W, slide and colour negatives as appropriate. Portrait, news, ...
  • I really don't see that manufacturers "counter" anything. Nikon has a fine camera in the D810 / D800 series. Excellent sensor implementation gives wide base ISO DR and, until the advent of Canon's ...
  • You can make conjectures about the "technique" and that is probably wrong.   The lens that I have on the camera is almost an arbitrary decision.   If you try to play detective with EXIF, that is ...
  • Indeed, if you understand anything about photography, it is usually faster overall to process raw image than JPG images.  I would much rather sift through 500 RAW images that 500 JPG images.  I ...
  • Replied in Actually...
    Nothing wrong with that ... people do it all the time with their iphone. Seems to me that the easy way to learn how to do it "right in camera" is available readily: 1. the camera manual usually ...
  • Replied in Noope
    At least both the noun and verb are correctly writen as humour on the north side of the 49th ! But there is no reason to belabour the point :)
  • Replied in Noope
    British / Commonwealth / Canadian Humour or American Humor (both noun and verb) ?? And you are from CANADA !
  • Replied in Noope
    You missed the humour :) :)  Of course, the camera jpg is a Canon style  conversion from the sensor raw... and the ACR jpg is a conversion of the camera raw :)
