  • Replied in Question
    More posts and I am even more confused than before. Not unexpected, though. I actually have my monitor calibrated. I bought i1Display Pro about two years ago, and despite being horribly expensive, ...
  • Um, I don't even understand what are you guys talking about. Perhaps you could keep extremely technical discussions out of beginner threads?... I wasn't even talking about Photoshop at all.
  • I know, but a little better starting point is still an improvement. I also don't want to dig into this too much, and I certainly don't want to even think about creating colour profiles myself.
  • Thanks, that was really helpful. I'm going to go through all my photos (thankfully, not thousands yet) again and see what profile I'll like the most. I think it'll be camera standard. Maybe I will ...
  • I have both LR 6 (whatever the last version is) and the new LR 7 which I am testing right now, so I have quite a few profiles to choose from, but only camera standard and faithful look decent to me. ...
  • How do you mean?
  • Created question thread Colour profiles
    I have just discovered that there are colour profiles in Lightroom. After two years of using it. Anyway. Should I stick with the default Adobe Standard, or would Camera Standard/Neutral be better? ...
  • Could you guys troll and flame each other elsewhere?
  • Just to refine my questions or approach a little: I don't intend to build a studio of any kind, and I only am interested in working with my camera and whatever I can attach to it. So, while it's ...
  • So unlike classic bounce where you more or less tilt the flash backwards and to either side, with this thing you point the flash directly upwards, so only very soft light hits subject's face ...
  • I use Av mode all the time, but often use the flash in manual mode. It's a bit of trial and error, but it's doable. I bought the softbox thinking it would help in places where I can't bounce much ...
  • Created discussion thread How to use a flash diffuser?
    I bought one of those smallish cloth-like diffusers you mount directly over the flash, but after a few test photos, the subject was still sort of overblown. Are there any specific techniques or do ...
  • What is the usual price of DxO btw?
  • I don't even know what DAM is.
  • I  went through the thread twice, and still have no definite answer. The only thing I am sure about is I will not be buying Capture One. The price is ridiculous for an amateur. I will see about the ...
  • No dock will solve the problem, because the lens simply fails to focus properly at random. Sorry,  you're talking out of your a** and have no idea what are you talking about. Feel free to feel ...
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom alternatives
    I own Lightroom 6, but now that they abandoned it, I guess I will have to start looking for alternatives. Can you recommend me something for my amateur occasional processing needs? Not a ...
  • Heh, ask ten people and you'll get 15 opinions :D I think it's down to either price or quality. Cheap being the 10-18, and quality the new Tamron lens (but I am not sure if I can justify the price ...
  • Replied in Risk/reward
    Thanks for the input. Ebay is not that widely used in this country and I never bought expensive (and new) stuff from there, so I am not sure what to expect and what kind of protection is there. The ...
  • Created discussion thread Buying gear from Ebay?
    I decided I need a new/better flash. Current flash is Yongnuo 565EXII, which performs well, so I'm going to stick with the brand. The trouble is, the 600EX-RT II I decided on cost about three times ...
