  • Gorgeous photos. What camera where you using?
  • I presume you mean architectural interiors and club event photography. To me natural lighting is the dominent lighting normal to the interior. In a club with no windows or more likely windows but ...
  • Why 2TB?  You can buy an external 6TB drive for $200. I have 170,000 images...all NEFs with room to spare. (I'm not bragging about the number of files...just poor management on my part)
  • The problem I had was the outer shell of the lens that the lens hood attaches to was loose. It had either broken free or a screw had sheered. The problem was MY FAULT. I had abused the lens by ...
  • I've been using photomatix pro for about 6 years with no problem. Using updated version 5.0.5a. As soon as I upgraded from the D800 to the D810 I got a problem. My NEF files are processed by ...
  • It works on RAW (CR or NEF) TiFs DNG jpeg. The reason is it only scans the exif data and doesn't have to open the images at all.
  • I would first explore what focal length in the 24-70 range you use the most? I would suggest you download Exposure Plot at www.vandel.nl and run this program against all your pictures. It will ...
  • Replied in Well....
    Composition is not a technical tweek. Also in many instances cutting the image down to simplify the message. Having an opinion on a work of art does not imply you are religious about it.
  • I agree. It looks like one large (softbox etc) light slightly above and to the left of camera. fill is accomplished with the white table top she is resting on. I personally don't like this style ...
  • The way I would do it is take a picture using a line in the bricks or the bottom of a line of windows to take the row of pictures. Making sure I never change the distance from my line of walk to ...
  • Replied in Well....
    Informed opinion is an interesting concept. I have a friend who taught art and I have absolutely no training in art other then appreciating art in many museums. She can stand next to me and ...
  • The best way is a tilt shift lens but assuming you are like most of us and can't afford one here are some solutions that will all work. 1. Use a telephoto lens and get as far away from the pump as ...
  • Here is how you work around your problem. I need to draw your attention to the fact that there are several ways of taking a pano. Standing on one spot rotating and taking a pano will always give ...
  • I gave up on Manfroto long ago because of the camera plate. Those cork faced plates can't be tightened enough to spot saging with a longer lens. The Arca-Swiss plates are way better. I have an L ...
  • Replied in Question
    I like this effect and you do it well. Can you give me a source of how you do it? I have never found a smudge tutorial.
  • Created discussions PS CC refine edge question
    I have been extracting parts of images for years using Photo Shop quick select etc. My work flow is 1 Use quick select and cntl j to produce a new layer of the selection 2 Create a layer mask of ...
  • It is a wonderful insight that the soft cornors can be possibly be the result of the 24-70mm spherical field of focus. Most lenses (not copy lenses) are spherical.  So if you want a product shot ...
  • Thanks. Yes AAs do fit better. Brain Fart for sure.
  • Created discussions Yongnuo YN622n-tx questions
    Just got the 622n-TX and 622N. I have two questions. 1. How do I update the software? www.hkyongnuo.com which is the url the manual gives goes to a total Chinese site and no apparent place to ...
  • The 3800 has a pressurized ink system. I've owned one for 4 years and never had a clog. I don't think the 2880 has a pressurized ink system. If that's true the 3800 wins hands down.
