About me:

One camera, four lenses - still learning and planning for some better glass! Began my DSLR journey in February 2012, graduating from a digital point-and-shoot.

I live in the southwestern corner of Vermont, on 15 acres of mixed woods, fields, and a small swampy area. There are a lot of photography opportunities here in this small space! But I don't limit myself to my own back yard and front yard - I enjoy going to other places in the Green Mountains, and occasionally visit my aunt in Maine (at least an hour northeast of Bangor).

GreenMountainGirl's recent activity

  • I looked up some articles on Focus Shift to try and understand it. From what I read, it appears that the camera uses wide open to focus, then uses the aperture it was set at to take the picture. ...
  • Hi Rich.  Thank you for your comments.  I also love to go around with my lenses and try out different ways of using them.  Your suggestion of doing image searches is a good one. When you say I will ...
  • I came back to this thread to read the additional postings since I last looked at it.  Despite the fact that I have a D7000 (crop sensor), I think that this lens is still preferable to the other ...
  • This discussion has been quite interesting, since I have been considering both the 300 f/4 and the 14-24 f/2.8!  My first love is wildlife, and am often frustrated when using my 70-300mm in low ...
  • Replied in Best CPLs?
    Yes, more than I ever thought I would know!  It is interesting to hear these histories, though. Thanks. Susan
  • Replied in Best CPLs?
    David - Thanks for the explanation and the link.  I read the article and it made things very clear! Susan
  • Replied in Best CPLs?
    What does "Kaeseman" mean?  I see that B&W makes this, as well as regular CPLs, so have to wonder what is the difference. I am interested in this, since B&W, Heliopan, and Rodenstock have all been ...
  • John, Thanks for this more precise explanation.   I have been leaning toward the Pro from everything I have learned, and you have clearly helped with the decision. I will look at the webinar today. ...
  • Thank you for this detailed response.  I agree about the Express - which is why I am not considering it.  Just want to know whether I should choose the Pro or Elite.  From what I have read on the ...
  • IMHO, you have put this exceptionally well. Another "right on!" from me. Aristotle is still relevant after all these years... Susan
  • Replied in Special Features
    I did see the Advanced mode on the website.  Since it is available in both the Pro and Elite versions, that just means I have to figure out whether any of the other features (available only in the ...
  • Thanks John.  I had to ask, because I don't even have a clue what these features mean!  Which, of course, suggests that either I won't need them or I better find out if I will... The price ...
  • Perhaps your copy of Spyder4 was not compatible with your system?  ColorMunki sounds user-friendly, and customer service is important. I looked up ColorMunki, and there are so many products!  Which ...
  • It is an ego thing.  Men show their ego issues much more readily.  Women have learned to sublimate their ego issues because diplomacy is their strong suit.  But I have met many "bitchy" women, too! ...
  • This quote certainly deserves pondering!  It is in a similar vein to the one I quoted...  I believe that a "normal photograph" is difficult to define, unless simply by using the "principles of ...
  • I have a good monitor, IPS, and would like to purchase a calibrator. I think the choice is between the Spyder4PRO and the Spyder4ELITE. Are the extra features on the ELITE going to be useful to me? ...
  • Craig, your advice is excellent as usual! I do want to add a few comments directed at austinspeer810...  Since you are "trying birding", and do not yet know if this will be one of your photography ...
  • This is an important point often overlooked!  Filtering can be more than just ignoring, it can also be no longer participating in the thread.  This is often why some threads just pass from view... ...
  • I have to agree with Mike.  It does not help a newcomer when the response is a long rant like this.  Fred has a camera and lens to work with, and has requested advice for how to work with what he ...
  • You would undoubtedly benefit from reading some tutorials about this relationship.  Also can search in this forum for the subject.  Aperture Priority is very good, but if you really want to learn, ...
