  • It will give you a purpose in mind when you shoot, learn to be selective when shooting, not when culling the 100 shots after a 10 minute shoot. In fact, try this assignment with a film camera, 1 ...

  • I suppose I've been lucky over the years, I'm in my 40's and have had a camera under my eye since I was 14 and - knock on wood - I've never broken a piece of kit by my hand. Don't get me wrong, I ...
  • I agree Larry, but I could not justify (in my mind) a $500 difference in price for all but identical image quality to get VR. As for the constant f4, a half stop difference also didn't sway me, ...
  • This is the only thing I might miss with the 18-35, although the high ISO capability of my D610 is impressive so I don't mind not having VR, or do I? haha ;)
  • Plenty of good points tyyreaun, I was in Cuba last month, street shooting in Old Havana for 3 days and I purchased the 18-35 before going, this lens is worth every penny spent on it. Having in the ...
  • Nothing here to see.
  • I've had my D610 since late summer, one of the first things I did was underexpose a shot. I was impressed with the ability of this sensor to save a shot in LR by adding +3 to exposure.
  • Aside from build quality I purchased the 18-35 because of IQ compared to the 16-35 and saved a lot of money.
  • I assume you'll be posting all 180600+ 'snaps' you've taken? Maybe dpreview should make you your own forum, problem with that is you will unfortunately accompany those pictures with 1,000,000 ...
  • Yup, you might want to now, learn some more, you're on your way. Plenty of tutorials available online and try the lughting and pro forums at dpr as well. Good luck! -- http://www.cpetridis.com
  • I figured as much. Hopefully he just takes it easy on the forum and fades away.......
  • Yeah, I did see it before it was pulled, too funny, I think his 'cave -hoe' comment was meant for you! True, underexposed and too much 'process' on the skin. The models are fine, I have nothing ...

  • Easy on the caps! haha Which magazine did this get published in as a staff photographer for that magazine that hired you as a staff photographer?
  • Hey congratulation on being a staff photographer for a mens magazine! Which one, I'd love to see more of your ambient light boudoir photography. I know you are not keen or maybe new to using flash, ...
  • Hahaha 3 pages and you finally found your answer! Good You mentioned you wanted to get into boudoir photography, will you be shooting available light or flash, how is the Sony system with flash ...
  • Replied in Portrait lens
    In normal light, the AF is quick but in very low light it will hunt. So, if most of your shooting is in very low light no flash, you may want to look elsewhere, then again I didn't buy this lens ...
  • Replied in Portrait lens
    I've been using the Tokina 100mm 2.8 for over a year now, purchased it for macro but I was pleasantly surprised on how it performs when using it for portraits, I am so pleased with the results ...
  • Even though I don't shoot Pentax digital I've always payed attention to their camera releases. They don't make many but they sure do build them well. Shoot raw and don't leave IQ on the table!
