  • I cant say that I agree with those who see no point.  War photographers are part of the reason that wars are less hidden than they were before, especially those who have the courage to be ...
  • I have a similar issue with my dog (a dalmatian). And whilst having less harsh light is an obvious solution (or maybe lowering the exposure and using fill in flash), I've had reasonable results ...
  • There are some incredibly helpful and constructive posters as well though!  I've certainly learnt a chunk of things here...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Just a quick thanks for everyone who has offered such helpful advice. I have a bit more now to go away and think about.  And it would probably be sensible to see if I can find some of the lenses ...
  • Yes I think I'm heading in that direction. The K5 is more than enough for just about everything I use it for, and I'm not one to upgrade at every stage.

    Yes that's a thought. There's also the 200mm 2.8 which looks good. I'd better go check what focal length I've been using on the zoom to see how much I really need the zoom for what I'm shooting. ...
  • I have a K5 which I love.  In terms of lenses I have a few wonderful limiteds, but the only long lens is a Tamron 18-250mm - a good walk around lens but obviously has its limitations in terms of ...
  • Replied in HOW?
    If it had been me on the trip and someone had asked for a copy of a photo I'd taken, I'd have been delighted and flattered!  Very happy to have "parasites" like that.
