My efforts to improve the photos I use in business has become an artistic interest, and I am joining this site to improve my skills.

  • OK, you're obviously smarter than I am.  Why don't you enlighten me as to how Genghis Khan and Adolph Hitler promoted limited government and individual freedom? Have you even thought out what makes ...
  • Yes.  More regulations, more benefits, involvement in every aspect of citizens' lives. Absolutely.  As a matter of fact (points to some of the leftists for recognizing the ignorance of many on the ...
  • Vlad and Genghis were leftists.  They operated totalitarian governments.
  • It's a lot cheaper to hire a lawyer at the beginning of a deal to keep you out of court than a lawyer at the end of the deal to fight for you in court. That said, understand that some of the risks ...
  • It depends on what you are doing.  Simple programs do simple things as well as complex programs.  They just don't do al the complex things you will want to do once you learn the simple things. ...
  • Thanks, Amamba and Sir Lataxe.  It's alway refreshing to meet people who don't personally dislike anyone who disagrees with their politics. Just one question, Sir Lataxe.  If I move next to you and ...
  • With unlimited government data mining, nothing is unenforceable.
  • There are many photographs wit the color, composition, and feel to compliment any wall, so "monopoly" is a fairly strong word.  Why pay for any photograph if there is no copyright. A lot of people ...
  • Sir Lataxe, I'll agree with you that this may not be the most egregious example, but I do bemoan the perversion of the language.  Changes to the meaning of words that make the language less ...
  • Interesting thought, Rick.  When I think of going to a new system, I always think of jumping in with the long zoom, the normal zoom, the wide zoom, and the fast prime.  I could skip the long zoom ...
  • You are absolutely correct when taking photos to use.  Shooting in one spot is an exercise to improve vision to better be able to see where to move to.
  • I wouldn't go that far. I think intellectual property laws need to be loosened up a bit. Copyrights and patents last too long and fair use provisions need to be improved. You can't give the ...
  • Sir Lataxe! What a pleasure to hear from you. I can not refuse such an invitation. -- Ed Rizk
  • Most people jump to conclusions, placing all thought, not only along a one dimensional continuum, but at only two fixed points on it.  No offense taken. Once again, there are additional dimensions ...
  • Not yet anyway.  Just wait.
  • Of course if you haven't gone full frame yet, like me, by the time you buy all the lenses for a complete system, the difference between the 5Dsr and the 6D is maybe 20%.
  • This thread is getting no action, which is further evidence of my point.
  • Did I single out liberals? I don't think I did. Most so called conservatives want more laws too. Conservatives might allow more religious freedom and liberals might allow more hedonism. Both ...
  • It's a bizarre personal choice.  Few like it as much as I.  I have often taken all my lenses and ended up using only the 10-22.
  • Sounds like an interesting exercise.  I'm going to try it the next time I'm not too busy moving from shot to shot. It is interesting the kinds of things that help one learn a creative process.  I ...
