  • Replied in I don know
    The joke would work better, if anyone remembered the band Wings.
  • This photo doesn't "warm my heart", but, it is a shot that provokes a response from the viewer most of the time. And there is a lot of narrative going on here too. I have encountered similar ...
  • There's the question. Who are you shooting for? If you are shooting for a photo contest that is to be judged on sharpness, shoot a sharp image. If you are shooting product photography, shoot a ...
  • If you shoot in low light, you have to get used to the flavor of some noise. But shooting at 6400 with the 6D shouldn't be bad. You may need to do some experimenting to get the right post ...
  • 24-70 L the action happens right on top of you if you are shooting cageside.
  • For me, the value of being able to shoot at very high ISO is that it allows me to shoot in very difficult environments. I shoot Mixed Martial Arts competetions, which happen in poorly lit rooms, ...
  • A pro camera is a camera a pro uses to get the results needed. GoPros get a fair amount of professional use, despite having a lot of limitations. And if you want a light, mirrorless system, Gopro ...
  • His gear list was certainly more than I would think makes sense for a day-tripper, but he also specified a single bag for around-town sort of use. Which is really the basis of why my main ...
  • Created discussions Virginia MMA Photography
    I haven't posted pictures in a while. Here are a few from recent MMA events I shot. Feedback is always nice, or I can answer questions.
  • It doesn't always work like that, but people hiking into the wilderness are well equipped for carry systems, and understand how to pack only what they need better than I do. You can always ...
  • Why replace the camera system, when you can replace the carry system? A neck strap is the worst possible way to carry any amount of weight. Put it on a shoulder strap, or in a belt holder. If all ...
  • Older. Socrates, except the bit about selfies. Point being, every generation thinks that the youth has all those bad qualities. Our parents felt that way about us, and their parents felt it about ...
  • “Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the ...
  • Easily fixed. Leave some of it on the shelf. Think about where you are going, and what you are shooting, and what your goals are, and only bring the gear you need. Changing systems just means ...
  • I can't tell people the reasons they say things, yet you are here to tell us the reason behind people posting selfies? How did you get that authority and how can I get in on that, oh wise and ...
  • When one claims modesty, it is self-praise. When one reccomends modesty it is, all too often, a polite way of saying "shut up and let me talk about myself instead". To some degree. I post an image ...
  • Not interested in comparing sensor wangs. If canon's older tech results in lower image quality, that doesn't lead to the conclusion that smaller cameras in general are just as good. It would only ...
  • I have an annual gaming convention coming up that I attend every year. Many people attend in costume, and it's a fun environment for photography. I tend to carry my camera 16-20 hours a day at ...
  • This. If I take picture of the destination, the best I can hope for is an image as good as a postcard. Easier to buy a travel book. If I put myself, my family, or my friends in the shot, then it's ...
  • I would prefer to stand next to someone who occupies a space between the two extremes. Modesty is overrated. Confidence and a sense of self worth can be great qualities. Certainly possible. Showing ...
