About me:

I've been enjoying Photography for over 30 years using everything
from Instamatic cameras to large format. Digital experimentation
began in 2001, but I still use film when it is more appropriate.
Regardless, my darkroom is now fully digital and my enjoyment of
this hobby keeps on growing. I take delight in sharing with other
people, the wonders I see in God's creation.

  • Yes you can! The little Canon EOS-M actually is an amazing little camera for shooting the Milky Way. This one was taken with the Samyang 24mm f1.4, but the Samyang 14mm f2.8 works well also.  On my ...
  • There is also a wealth of training available on the site Lynda.com. You can watch portions for free but if you pay the membership fee for one month, you can have unlimited access to all their ...
  • Maximum aperture means " the smallest number on the f scale", this gives the largest lens opening and lets in the most light possible. You will find out why this terminology seems backwards as you ...
  • There have been several previous discussion threads in this Forum on Tips & Tricks that offer good user feedback. Below is an example: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51802794 I always try to ...
  • Hi Greg,  The 14 mm is one of my fav lenses.  In daylight, put your camera in Av mode, set the aperture to f11 or f16 and your focus to about 10 ft.  The camera will select the appropriate shutter ...
  • Greg,  While I do not have the Canon lens, I do have the Rokinon 14mm f2.8 and 24mm f1.4.  Both are exceptional for what you war to do.  You can't beat the price and I doubt you would see enough ...
  • I second the recommendation for the Samyang lenses.  I was in Glacier/Waterton National Parks this summer, and you just can't beat a "light bucket" for scooping up photons on a dark night.  Both ...
  • Replied in lensfun
    Yes, PTLens works very well for correcting the distortions in this lens.  Very easy to use as well.
  • It is one of my favorite lenses.  Focus in daylight is not an issue.  Set the lens to f11 or f16 and the focus ring to 10 ft and everything is in focus!  Great for night shots as well.  Very sharp ...
  • Joydeep, The 7D is looking like it will be replaced later this year, so If you were leaning that way, you might want to wait a bit.  If you want the ultimate in image quality, consider the 6D. ...
  • Joydeep, The best thing you can do to improve image quality is to purchase the highest quality lenses you can afford.  Even if you just pick up one really sharp lens, you will see the difference. ...
  • Only you can answer the question. Does Aperture meet your need now?  If it does, then stay.  If it does not and LR has some feature that you absolutely need to use continually, then switch.  But ...
  • Sorry, But I still don't completely understand the issue. Are you saying the initial preview (out of camera generated preview) looks dark, but the final processed version is OK?  or are both too ...
  • I wish I could, but I have to respect the privacy of my friends. Try it on your friends at your next party without telling them what is to happen and enjoy what develops (pun intended)!
  • Created discussions Hysterical Error
    I was doing some group shots at a get together last weekend.  So, I put my "M" on a tripod and set the shutter to give me a 10 second time delay before firing so I could get in the photo as well. ...
  • Only you can answer that.  Are there features or capabilities in the newer model that you need to think you might need?  If so, and you can afford it, go for it.
  • Any of the current models will be an astounding improvement over your trusty 350D.  Pick one and put the rest of your money into high quality lenses.
  • Hi Tracy, I hope your are seeing better soon! First off, it does not matter what Picture Style you have y our  camera set to if you are shooting RAW.  The Picture Style will only affect the camera ...
  • Thanks.  I appreciate the correction. Have a Happy Easter!
  • I have enough experience as a former Adobe customer, to take their statements with a grain of salt. PS can only now be purchased via subscription.  That said, Aperture is still less expensive than ...
