  • At one point Smugmug was offering reduced/free services to non-profits, not sure if they still are, I would drop them a note if interested in them. I think they required some level of proof. I am ...
  • And keep in mind that "commercial" here is not what most people think it means -- it means you cannot use it for advertising or similar promotional work.  You can use it for art and sell it as ...
  • Before you go shoot, spend a bit of time looking online. Almost every sport has various sites giving you information on settings and technique. Secondly, there's no point coming to a site and just ...
  • Replied in Little League
    Crop that first one vertical and close, hold onto it until he's playing in the MLB, and sell it for a fortune. :) Great expression! Actually second also.
  • The same way you tell a good photographer from a bad photographer -- what he shoots. :)
  • No comment on the two cameras, but as kids age sports tend to progress from daytime to night, and F4 is awfully slow for night field sports.  Short also, but short is better than slow.  Personally ...
  • I'm not sure if you are asking a question or just making a statement. If it's a question, I will offer a few answers, not all may apply to each photo of course: - It shows something that the fans ...
  • The point is that if the proprietary file becomes an issue, one must convert to something. Adobe, especially with making DNG public domain, is pushing the format as future proof. In concept if ...
  • To me it's a solution in search of a problem. I use Lightroom, so if I ever find a good reason to use DNG's (say Adobe dropping support, or I'm moving to a different system than Lightroom and it ...
  • I'll offer a different perspective. Beg off doing it at all. Doing favors like this for friends sometimes works, but more often it causes problems.  Doing it for free maybe, but if you charge, it's ...
  • I'd spend $10/mo on the photography bundle with photoshop, that gets you the latest lightroom also.  HDR there is decent, and photoshop has far more features than you will ever use.  Some of the ...
  • On a wide monitor desktop, the first page with the 3 and then 1 photo to me is a bit imcomplete. To more categories, ro put them 2 x 2 would be a bit more symmetric. Now the great thing about what ...
  • I hope you want critical feedback, and apologies if not, but... First - flash is bad. Too many browsers especially on mobile don't support it. I was astounded when not long ago I found the majority ...
  • Not the original responder but I do a bit of basketball so my two cents worth. on full frame I use 50mm under the basket if I need lots of light, and 85 from the corners. This presumes sideline ...
  • sssesq's point is well taken but let me see if I can give you some pointer here since the thread is open. First, see if there's a local camera club around, or MeetUP group for beginning DSLR ...
  • I didn't see the country named, but if this is being published primarily overseas, you need advice specific to that country as well as the country in which you live. This is a pretty US centric ...
  • Replied in Hold on...
    There are a couple problems with your approach. First, you don't seem to have a business goal. Anyone trying to start any business should have a clear vision with numbers attached -- a plan for how ...
  • I have a Nikon 14-24/2.8, and you are right I rarely shoot it at f2.8.  I have a bit over 500 hots in my library and only about 10% are shot under F4, and the vast majority between F5.6 and F16. Ho ...
  • To me it looks fairly typical of higher ISO noise.  A lot can be done with post processing, so not sure how aggressive you have been there.  Zoom in 1:1 on lightroom, and adjust the noise ...
  • Just bear in mind it is their policy, so trying to argue about that interpretation is rather pointless.  It's not like you are arguing interpretation with a 3rd party -- they made the rule, they ...
