  • John...also regarding bouncing the flash, etc. I understand all that and in fact I have a Stofen Dome on the flash with a LastoLite EZYbox attached. I guess for getting diffused light with the ...
  • So...Sailor Blue, you are correct. I shoot in Av 95% of the time so I guess that is something I need to look at changing when I use flash. John...Thanks for the info. My question is with using a ...
  • Trying to figure out something regarding flash and maybe I've just misunderstood something this whole time. Here is the deal....even though I have a Mark III and a 600 EX-RT speedlight, I mainly ...
  • Howard and Ben….much better than what I was able to do…Thanks for the efforts! I've been trying to coach her about her photos and "looking past the subject". However, I'm afraid this was just a ...
  • Hi everyone…my daughter sent me a photo of my granddaughter taken with my daughter's i-phone. It's a great photo except that technically it's terrible. Backlit, so she is dark, overexposed ...
  • First of all.... I like Ming. That being said, I'm not sure how objective he is regarding Leica these days. I questioned him regarding a comment he made regarding Leica being "silly money". I ...

    Who am I? Well as a philosophical question, I'm not sure that can be answered. :-D So I'll say I'm a child of God, a Catholic American, a husband, a father, and a new grandfather. I try to be nice ...

    Hi Godfrey, I guess you are right about that, but I'm not sure if you could advance the film unless you actually depressed the shutter button all the way. Plus you had a frame counter. With ...

    I like Steve Huff, but I think if they had a cardboard box pinhole camera he would get excited as long as it came with a red dot. He was way too exuberant about the T in my opinion, so he lost a ...

    Maybe I am missing something....but who in the world thought it would be a good idea to produce a digital camera without an LCD screen? How are you going to know you even took a picture. At least ...

    Anyone excited in the least with the new Leica offerings?
  • Yes...but they were also candid shots. So with that slow shutter speed, I was having as much trouble with camera shake as I was motion blur. Steve
  • Hi....there is a lot more to it than just the absence of an aperture ring. You can Google "chief ray angle and digital sensors" to see the issues involved. If you can't find it, let me know, and ...
  • Just an FYI but there is no conversion for a Canon mount Otus to a Leica. There is if you purchase the Nikon version. I have the Otus 55 and it's everything it's said to be, plus some. ...
  • I Googled this an saw how to e mail photos out of ( I know how to do that) but not how to import an e mail photo into LR. My daughter has a photo of my granddaughter she just sent me. I'm not sure ...
  • Created discussions Hi everyone...first time here
    I am looking to expand my photography...so I would love some recommendations on light stands, soft boxes, etc. I know kits are available but I've read both positive and negative comments about ...
  • Thanks Godfrey! I have the latest version of LR, but I can't seem to remove enough of the grain to make me happy. I really don't think I'm being unreasonable. I think it's more that I haven't ...
  • Replied in A link
    D......thank you so much for this link. I had no idea about this technique or that one could get that kind of a clean shot in low light conditions. You may have just saved me from doing something ...
  • So "machine gunning" is a technique for low light or macro with a breeze where you fire off several frames hoping that at some point one will be sharp. Hopefully, you get one in between camera ...
