  • I would use software over a physical GND filter. I own several ND filters and they are great for doing long/longer exposures. However with a GND filter you have to get it onto the camera and line ...
  • Replied in Useful tip
    So I have 3 email addresses (actually I have more for different work related uses). My main email (me@domain.com) that I use to email friends and colleagues. - at some point a friend will get ...
  • I made the mistake of buying the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II as my first lens (after the kit lens that came with my 7D). The IQ was so good it made everything else look poor by comparison. I am continually ...
  • Yes. AF will only be active when AF-ON is pressed. As you disabled it on the shutter button you would need to be pressing the back button.
  • Under UK law you can't enter into a legally binding contract until you are 18 years of age. For anyone younger than that a parent or guardian is required to sign on their behalf or the release ...

    TIFFs. You should never do post processing on JPEG files if you have either RAW or TIFF available. Process the RAW files in ACR first then select Edit In Photoshop to open the image as a TIFF in PS.
  • A mate and I were hanging with Salgado last night, as you do, and asked him if he would ever go back to film. His response was most certainly not. He gets the same look from his digital images ...

    I guess now you know why it is so cheap. Was it advertised as in working condition?
  • The buffer is to do with the speed at which the camera can write to the card and not to do with in-camera processing. Larger files take longer to write and thus the buffer fills up quicker. The ...
  • Replied in Black and white
  • I like the subject an the composition and the processing, but the dogs face is too out of focus and ruins the shot.
  • It was probably one of the export setting that was incorrect. What pixel size were you exporting the images at?
  • I recognise that she has a real skill for that style of work. Very impressive.

    To what Scott said. You also have dust on your sensor. Those soft round dots on the image (I can see at least 5) are caused by dust/dirt on your sensor. They show up more clearly at smaller ...
  • Thanks Steve. Really enjoying black n white. Been going back through my old images with a new eye looking for ones that make good B&W. Interesting how many of the images that were uninteresting in ...
  • Simple... not all memory cards are created equal. If the makers included the cheapest one in the package someone would complain. If they included the most expensive high spec someone else would ...
  • Yes to all the above. In other words you are correct, they are talking at cross purposes. People want different things from photography and from their RAW processing programs. Not if the process ...
