  • Photography is a form of art, similar to piano playing.  I took piano lessons for 12 years, my parents forced me to practice 45 minutes every single day of those years.  If someone believes Piano ...
  • To me it looks like butterfly lighting (look on the web to see the setup and what it's like), but they used a small light source above as can be seen by the defined shadow under the nose, and may ...
  • x2 on the mirrorless. The main companies are Sony, Panasonic, and Olympus. I'm personally most partial to Olympus, I hear so many complain about Sony menus and how frustrating they find using them. ...
  • Try this... 1.) Look for a background that won't be more than 3 different colors. They can be different shades, just not colors. 2.) Look for balance, you used the rule of 3rds but there's nothing ...
  • Looks decent to me. What makes a good camera tripod typically doesn't make for a good video tripod. A photo tripod you want to flick/twist a switch and be able to move the head in any direction ...
  • Wherever you focus, 1/3rd towards you and 2/3rds away from you will be in focus. Let's say you want to take a picture of a canoe on the shore and only have the canoe in focus. You'd pick a fast ...
  • I would disagree about the comment TTL/HSS is expensive, I'd argue it's easier and can be cheaper than doing manual. One strategy to save money is, don't buy the same thing twice. That is, if you ...
  • Today we live in the cheap & free society. If it's not free, we're not paying for it. Some college class asked its students, if Facebook charged $1 a month to use their services would you pay it? ...
  • I was over glamoured with my film shooting days with the Nikon F5 and figured I'd go back into film and have one of the best P&S that allows manual so ended up with the Nikon 28Ti mint complete on ...
  • I don't recommend buying a film camera. You can do what you ask with a cheap digital dslr. I bought a film camera last year for $600 thinking how cool it would be to get back into it. Then I went ...
  • Replied in Just a warning
    I don't know where the results of your images are going, but be warned high-end monitors I've found aren't WYSIWYG. I bought one several years ago and it was IMPOSSIBLE for it to display noise and ...
  • Replied in My take...
    I understand... I've personally been shooting Nikon since 1999 when I believe Nikon had the market share. First Nikon releases a VR camera a year before Canon released their first IS (although ...
  • I shoot events, I don't have a quiet shutter.  While shooting the event there's constant parents who don't know how to shut off auto-focus beeps so the entire event is beep-beep *flashclick*, ...
  • The exposure scale does not take into consideration if the flash is off the camera. It's to be used as a guide when the flash is on the camera. I'm also assuming you're referring to the feature of ...
  • Yes stabilization is a must. In low light you need all the help you can get trying to get sharp pictures at 300mm. You'll be glad you have 300mm frequently, it's not too long trust me you'll be ...
  • When shooting outdoors in sun, the problem is overcoming the sun. A speedlight doesn't have enough power, you have to use them in certain circumstances or use them bare as putting them in a softbox ...
  • That lens comes in a lot of different models, and I agree with everyone else VR is an incredible feature definitely worth it. I started photography back in 1999 when Nikon didn't have VR for many, ...
  • I got the 3Pod Orbit 4 section Carbon Fiber Tripod with pistol grip for $199 from Adorama, wasn't a Black Friday deal, but on sale.  It's still going on. I agree with having a travel tripod, I had ...
  • Replied in Cloud storage
    I'm not sure most people use cloud storage since it's expensive. They need a lot of bandwidth, UPS batteries, backup generators, multiple site locations, full time security personnel, full IT ...
  • I would say, Bird photographers or NFL/sports. Bird photographers need some serious glass to even get those little things somewhat filling up the frame and/or to freeze them in flight and I find ...
