  • Replied in Excellent
    Those are quite good.  Some colour and exposure adjustments would help, but you have the overall composition.
  • Whatever works for you.  I've seen a few amazing results from reverse-mounted lenses that compete well with a regular 1:1 macro lens, and as long as the old lens is in good condition, you should ...
  • You may be able to get a Canon 6D or 7D for cheap during the holiday discount sales. They are amazing camera bodies for a low price. What are you trying to photograph, and which lenses are you ...
  • The so-called lawyer was threatening the photographer! When the lawyer takes the position of the employer and tries to twist the law in such a way as to make the photographer feel threatened into ...
  • When somebody is threatening the photographer under the guise of being "legal counsel" or some such nonsense while lying, making false claims, and aggressively trying to cause harm to the ...
  • Exposure Compensation alters the metered exposure value. If <Exposure Value> = EV For <Exposure Compensation> = N <Exposure Value> = EV + N What your camera does with that (EV + N) value depends on ...
  • Replied in They may be fake
    Claiming to be lawyers means putting suggestive text in e-mails or stating in phone calls that they are some sort of "legal counsel." They are not actually practising law in the sense that they ...
  • Replied in I agree
    I've been told as much, that the hiring party owns everything that the photographer does without question. It's as bad as when photographers are told that the person being photographed owns all ...
  • Are you being told that you need to complete an MFA?  Are you feeling like you're personally unsatisfied without an MFA?  If you're looking for "simple" explanations, you probably don't want to do ...
  • Converting from 3:2 to 5:7 or 8:10 requires some cropping.  You would need to make cropped images if you want to make the decision about how to crop.  The other choices are to stretch the image or ...
  • I'd suggest that the MFA won't necessarily teach you how to do what you're considering.  I've never done any "pre-programming" of the lens control chips, and I don't expect to need it.  I point ...
  • What is the Minimum Focus Distance of the lens that you have now?  I can do macro stuff with many non-macro lenses; the differences are that the depth-of-field isn't as good, focusing accurately ...
  • Replied in Need macro lens
    No, not "point and shoot." You need a lens with a close Minimum Focus Distance, regardless of the size of the camera or its recording format. Not every compact camera's lens can do this, as not ...

  • Replied in Too vague
    First of all, "sports photography" requires a large investment in lenses and supporting equipment, because this subject covers everything from large field sports to tight venues, and in all ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Use the One Shot auto-focus mode unless either you or the object being photographed is moving, in which case you should use the AI Servo auto-focus mode. Increasing the size of the lens aperture ...
  • What happens when you show the video to someone with a calibrated screen?  The brightness of your camera's LCD screen won't significantly affect the exposure, especially not to the point of making ...
  • You understand wrong. At least with normal dSLRs, there is only one auto-focus point at any one time, and there can only be one actual point of focus. What's "highend fulll frame"?  What matters ...
  • There is a potential problem with focusing at the Infinity focusing distances.  The macro lens is looking for something close, and when it doesn't find something close, it assumes that it's ...
  • If you're operating at the longer focal lengths, there will be some shaking visible in the video recording despite the Image Stabilization. This shaking, however, will be less noticeable than the ...
