  • To the OP..... A huge +1 to the advice bigdaddave gave you.  The other replies (most all of them), while technically correct, failed to state that if you stop down the 17-40L you will now have ...
  • You're welcome. You will not regret getting a 6D. Know that there is a learning curve shooting narrow DoF though. You have to make sure the focus point is exactly on the point you want in focus. ...
  • excellent advice given so far.  Let me add using Av mode with the minimum shutter-speed option selected in the camera menu.  ALSO use the FEC option usually -2/3 to -1 stop so as to minimize the ...
  • Not only do I agree with you but I used to use my 135L on my 7d before getting FF. It is a wicked lens on both formats!  I was more thinking of when the OP wants to take portraits at LESS than the ...
  • The 5d, 5dm2, 5dm3, and 6d are all FF cameras and the 7d, and 7dm2 are crop sensor cameras. Choose a FF for doing portraiture and when you want less noise at high iso. The difference in depth of ...
  • Agreed that the 135L prevails but OP's gear is crop.  A bit long for crop but still a killer lens.
  • To the OP: +1 for the 70D.  The 7Dm2 is overkill for what you want to do.  In fact, the money you save with a 70D will free up some cash to put towards a used 5dm2 which is a way better format for ...
  • Benjamin, These are by far, my favorite images of yours.  Spectacular pretty much sums it up for me. Thank you for sharing your work.

    Wow!  Impressive!  My only nit is the distortion from using a 20mm focal length. Her knee in #2 and bowser in #3 are both distorted.  Use a longer focal length. For these, a 50mm would suffice. ...
  • If it is studio portraiture that you want to do, then the lenses you have will suffice. If you want to do outdoor portraiture then you want a lens that renders the BG out of focus for subject ...
  • You did not state what kind of photography you do nor did anybody else ask you. Unless you specifically have a need for a much narrower DoF and a stop and a half better ISO performance, your needs ...
  • Here is a 32in 4k IPS that looks promising and is $999 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1081065- REG/benq_bl3201ph_32_3840x2160_uhd_ips.html http://www.benq.us/news/2014/BenQ-Creative-Class-Pr ...
  • 27in 4k IPS panel $699 http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&sku=210-ADOF Acer B326HK is a 32" 4K IPS display and has been out in Europe for several months and is ...

    I like the untouched edits as well.  Have you ever had a client comment on it? Can you share your lighting set-up on all 3 shots please?
  • I agree with you regarding raw and also stated that there are better options available when doing so. We're on the same page.  I assumed that you did not know this based on your shots. I figured I ...
  • Replied in Brown...
    Both shots are outstanding! The colors seriously add to the overall composition! Do you use 'liquify'?  Her right eye could use an adjustment perhaps?  Just a nit-pick as this shot is outstanding ...
  • I like the composition and the capture of the moment.  What I don't like is the over-exposed background and over-exposed dappled foreground light. You need to do localized exposure, contrast and ...
  • Always shoot in raw when conditions are less than optimum. You can do so much more when it comes to editing. Especially when WB is off.  There is another way to adjust the color besides WB. In LR ...
  • Your monitor is 24in.  Does it pivot to portrait mode? Have you displayed a photo on a 24in monitor with the monitor pivoted to portrait? I use dual 24in monitors with one of them always in ...
  • Regarding the scaling, I've resigned myself to use (if I get one) the 4k monitor for photos only, staying with 2k to display the LR tool panes.  I'm assuming the scaling issues have nothing to do ...
