About me:

In his photography, Eduardo Suastegui seeks the heart and spirit in each image and considers every photograph a blessing caught rather than a result of his ability. He captures his images not solely for the sake of self-satisfaction or expression, but to share his vision of the world with others. His hope is to share the photographic gifts he receives with those who view his images.

Eduardo captures all his photos digitally and post-processes them with specialized software to finalize his vision. He prints his photos using high quality photo paper, opting in some cases for prints on canvas or metal medium. In his exploration of photography, Eduardo gradually shifted his emphasis from color photography to the freedom black and white allows him to express emotions and moods at the core of his images.

You can view more of Eduardo’s photography and order some of his work through the Fine Prints page on his site.

On article Hands-on with Nikon V2 (455 comments in total)

All these comments about the looks... here and elsewhere... now I really know for sure that people don't buy cameras to take pictures. :)

On article Just Posted: Hands-on Nikon D600 preview (376 comments in total)

Technically, I think this is very good. Pricing is a bit of a mixed story. I'm hoping Nikon is looking to cash in on early adopter enthusiasm, then drop the price to capture more of the DX-to-FX market. I think many DXers right now look at the price differential between the D7000 and D600 and see too big of a gap.

More thoughts on that here:

I bet half of those complaining wouldn't even know how to pull off the archer shot. Some are not to my liking, in some the lighting is either to harsh in the highlights or shadows for my taste, but in no case will I put this photographer's work down so that I can feel better about mine.

Check out the link on my site to experienced wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer, and his use of this camera in a couple of his shoots:

In reply to:

camerashopminion: My D7000 had an accident once, guess what holds that together these days? Same goes for the loose battery door on my F5. And my D300 had a fair bit of black tape covering areas where I'd damaged a part that was previously weatherproof.

As my colleague stood behind me just said, would you rather it's fixed with electrical tape, or not fixed at all?

Well, reading this response I'd rather you be more careful or have better luck in the future. 4 bodies here, and none of them need to be held together by tape.

That said, I agree tape isn't a "cheap fix." You'd be surprised how much tape is used in many applications where it is the best way to hold things or shield (as in this case) in a way that doesn't add excessive weight.

I think the comments about the personality section are missing the mark, perhaps because the article also doesn't close the deal on why personality (who you are as a person) is so critical for wedding photography. First, yes, you do have to interact with your clients in a way that puts them at ease, inspire confidence, *and* get you their referrals. Second, and perhaps just as important, you have to connect with your clients personally (you have to care about who they are) if you are to capture photos that truly represent who they are and what they're feeling on a very special day. If you can make that connection, they will connect even more strongly with your photos, and here come more referrals.

In short, personal connections feed photos that connect personally, and for me, that's what wedding photography is all about.

In reply to:

Joseph S Wisniewski: I find it very ironic that the review emphasizes the lack of liveview, referring to it with the definite article "the missing feature".

I cannot fathom why, after a decade and five generations of Sigma DSLRs, there is no liveview. I've designed Foveon based industrial cameras: the on-chip "VPS" binning makes liveview easier to implement than any other sensor. They've been building Foveon P&S cameras for six years, and those have liveview. Why not the DSLRs?

Yes, it is a very odd... choice.

One of the lowest paid disciplines? Interesting. I guess for those who come and go over a 5 year period, perhaps. There are a lot of $3-5K a wedding photogs out there, and there's an even higher strata. I'd say that among mid to high success wedding photographers, the starving comments don't apply.

M1963: The madness has gone too far. Phones are for phoning (and texting, OK), cameras are for photographing. The sample image on flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/nokiaofficial/6788333052/sizes/o/in/photostream/) is appalling: it's unsharp and noisy. I don't even care if it's far better than any other cell phone at shooting. It's a bad image, that's all there is to it. If you want to make photos, buy a camera, not a phone.
And no, I'm not 108 years old...

Base your opinion on the samples. They aren't so bad. We'll see what they look like when we have more images to review, but like it or not, phones are no longer for talking or even texting: they are for connecting you to the world around you. And what better way to connect than to share your life and work in photos and video?

Wow. Just when you think you've seen everything. We're living in wonderful times for photography.

JackM: How is this an issue? Nobody uses Google+.

I must say... G+ seemed a lot more active when I joined 3 months ago, but no one seems to be interacting with my stuff there of late. Maybe no one likes me, which wouldn't be a new finding. L:( --- on the plus side, I'm getting lots of hits from Google searches on my main site. Think about Google presence and search prioritization the next time you want to dizz G+. :)

Noticed over the weekend Flickr just went to the Lightbox interface. Not sure what to think of it. G+'s input of comments is easier.

Joseph S Wisniewski: I have a simpler, and more likely, theory...

"This seems like an odd way of doing things; why not just remove the filter altogether? Our best guess is that it simply makes manufacturing the two models side-by-side easier: instead of having to make an entirely different filter stack for the D800E, Nikon just needs to change the first low-pass filter in the overall assembly."

I'm guessing Nikon is using a trick first seen on the Canon 5D II. The clear components in front of the sensor, because their index of refraction is higher than air, increase spherical aberration, and therefore decrease resolution, an annoyance that is most noticeable with high resolution sensors.

So, they eliminate one optical component by replacing the clear sensor cover glass with one of the two LiNbO3 filters. Because of that, you can't eliminate that filter without making up a new batch of sensors, which is expensive.

So, instead of eliminating it, you negate it. Cheaper than another sensor run.

Yes, very clever, but is it a fully 100% equivalent solution?

Interesting and exciting times. Even though I'll probably never get one of these, good on Nikon for stretching capability in a new direction. Still hoping for a D3s or D4 sensor in a D700 form factor.

Anysia: First photo: bus obscured by wall, leading lines all over the place, too much open space above the towers, people walking in front of the bus, obscuring it even more.

2nd photograph: better composition, strong leading lines, bus bracketed by Westminster and clock tower, people walking on the side. Overall a more appealing photograph.

Maybe that's the reason why Fielder sued.

But aren't you forgetting the innovative selective color [rolls eyes]

That's not the same shot, not by a long shot. What's next? Closeups of dogs infringe on closeups of cats?

The people's Leica M8... with the M9 equivalent soon to follow, we hope.

Well, @ $2,500, that's not as many people as one would hope...
