About me:

Thank you for viewing my DPReview profile, I am a portrait photographer, specializing in corporate headshots. My background is in counselling and photography, I started my first studio at the age of 17 and left it due to allergy of chemicals and worked with youth and their families in different capacities to help them bridge a solution following apprehension due to sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect. I consider my work as a corporate headshot photographer and extension of both disciplines, psychology and photography.

On Linkedin Headshots challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

ConanFujiX: Some of these people looked like they didn't know that their 'headshot is being taken for a linkedin profile'. Looks more like some random stranger on a park bench some 10m away.

I was really curious to see and learn from these submission's.

On From Olympic Village at Night in the Low Light - Low ISO #2 challenge (1 comment in total)

If interested, have a look at this image in full size to truly appreciate it, otherwise it just won't make sense. This image prints a poster sized 33"x115".

On ACDSee Ultimate 8 introduces layer-based editing article (66 comments in total)

I have read a few cynical reviews about ACDSee software from angry cynics who have never even tested the software. I am not interested in reading angry venting, but to learn from a professional or someone experience and informed review.

Certainly, we consumers will benefit with a new software company that can match Adobe, its healthy. I would hate it if we only had one camera available, which seem like it has become with photo editing software. Photoshop and a distant capture 1, ACDSee and Corel.

For that reason I am really excited towards testing ACDSee's full potential.

I don't understand how these cameras can be compared, Sony 7s is a full frame camera and Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 is a four thirds sensor almost 4 times smaller. They are not in the same league, although they are mirror-less cameras. Look at the critic section"image quality" , aim the square at a shadow area and increase the iso to 6400 and match them and compare, than keep increasing the Sony iso. Sony's iso at 102,400 is better than the Panasonic at 12,800.

Some may argue that the Panasonic has more megapixel 16 MB vs 12 MB, but it has 0 visual benefits. The only winners in having greater megapixels are the hard drives manufacturers.

Recently I upgraded my camera and I was comparing Canon 6D with the Sony 7s, I remained loyal to Canon due to lack of lenses in Sony's 7s, but would love to have one, specially for street photography. No offence to Panasonic Lumix - not in the same league. Its like comparing a Tesla with a Chev Volt, because both are electric cars.

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)

Love the 11 point focusing system - I just don't know how somebody could use the 61 points system properly? or understand the advantage of having 61 points when it covers the same area?

On Nikon D800 preview (1106 comments in total)

Am considering making the switch back to Nikon from Canon. 5D to D800

Image quality and features will not make much of a difference for my style of photography. However, Nikon's ergonometric design and accessibility with in the camera -will.

My pet-peeve about Canon is forging the user to get away from the viewfinder to find important features. Nikon make is easier.

Reading this review, I am a little disappointed with two items - the increase of Megapixel size, and not increasing the ISO abilities. I rather have less pixels and greater ISO, than more pixels, as it slows down the workflow. Its not the size, but how you use it.

I was expecting the 800 D to reach 111, 000 ISO as an expansion feature. However, I prefer a camera that can shoot up to 25, 000 ISO well rather than a poor showing of higher limits.

Nonetheless I am very excited about the new 800 D. I also welcome a sponsorship from NIKON,
