richiebee's recent activity

  • I have two - an APSC "Sports" body (Nikon D500) and a full frame portrait body (Nikon D610). I use both for shows (I have one on either side of me, usually with a wide-normal on the D610, and a ...
  • where people are close to the edge of the lens, yes it matters.
  • It's been working for Apple for years.
  • Some of us have been asking for a concert/stage forum for ages, but dpr keeps refusing, so good luck!
  • Which is odd since they designed them to be so easy to take down, and lightweight for travel.  I think they are designed for portable use, and it's totally a design flaw that they don't hold up. I ...
  • Replied in Both
    That depends. You'd hope that most of us have moved beyond just taking photos with the camera "kit" we bought. A wide angle lens can tell a very different story to a telephoto lens. A sports ...
  • Concerts Urban Exploration (rarely get the chance) Studio Headshots Macro (in particular in damp forests) - this is new for me and I find it very relaxing... it's a different world. Shows (a lot ...
  • I prefer horizontal, even when shooting portraits though I would normally do both. My employers magazine does a feature image in 2:1 landscape and a main article as 5:7 portrait. Other images in ...
  • That's a little bit like using a sledge hammer to nail your deck together.
  • I didn't buy a D500 because it was"all I could afford". I specifically wanted APSC because it suits the venues I shoot at better than full frame. For me, APSC provides the best combination of image ...
  • DR may or may not be relevant to the point that all modern cameras may well have enough dynamic range for your purposes.  In this case, discussing the differences is pointless, just like ...
  • I'm pretty careful with them, though I always feel as though I'm wrestling with them a bit to get the stems in their slots. Sadly the Chimera SuperPro and Plume Wafers are out of my price range.  I ...
  • Replied in Never
    I think very carefully before I put things up for sale and generally I only sell when I upgrade. The only camera product I've sold and not replaced with something better is the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 ...
  • It can also run the tablet version of Lightroom if you want something designed from the ground up for touch. No futzing around with finding files afterwards either.
  • Replied in Surface Pro
    I use i5 SP3 with 8GB ram on 21MP and 24MP files. It's not lightning fast, but it's smooth in operation and fast enough to keep up if you have a decent workflow. Fast enough that I do 95% of all ...
  • Created discussion thread Elinchrom Rotalux - durability
    I've had my Rotalux 90x110 softbox for less than a year.  I've always thought the material was a bit flimsy, but I'm pretty disappointed to see the silver interior coming away from the stitching ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Studio Shoot
    From my first studio shoot.  Still one of my favourites
    Placed 22nd in the challenge. From my first studio shoot. Still one of my favourites
  • Replied in Surface Pro
    another vote for Surface Pro. Lightroom has  desktop and tablet modes and both work great on the Surface Pro.
  • Replied in D500 landscape
    D610 is a better value than the D750. They share the same sensor, and the D610 is no slouch in low light focusing.
  • I upgraded a D7100 to D500 and got my money's worth on my first gig. The difference in response was worth the price of admission for me. Are there features I don't use? Absolutely. Are there ...
