  • it doesn't make sense that they would be lit differently.  I think the iPhone just did a horrible job all round from the f/1.4 bokeh (he he) to "smoothing skin tones" to eye sharpening, to the ...
  • It was an assumption (hence the "it seems"), based on their want for photographs for their portfolio. Of course there are lots of ways to present a portfolio, but web sites seem to be up there in ...
  • Getting a job as a photographer. There’s nothing like being handed restrictions to make you think quickly and creatively. I’ve done it twice (first as a part time theatre photographer and now as a ...
  • No, you can attain focus, release the BBF button while its in focus, and take the shot.  It's just part of the skill set.  It's actually very easy. My only point in this part of the thread is that ...
  • The problem with interacting with the subject before taking the shot is that it often ceases to be candid.  I struggle with this balance in my event photography - at receptions particular... and ...
  • The problem for me in this situation, is that its likely a closed event.  Are people obliged to allow themselves to be photographed and associated with this event fro your benefit?  If you shoot, ...
  • They do look a bit voyeuristic. Everyone has their idea of what street photography is. MY opinion is that it's NOT  about being stealthy, and not using an excessively long lens so that you can be ...
  • Replied in Exposure lock?
    I have exposure locked to another button...  so, yes, I sometimes use three buttons to take a shot.  Compared to playing the trumpet, it's a piece of cake.
  • I have a D610 and D500 (same sensor as D7500). I choose D610 when image quality is all important. D500 is my favourite for responsiveness and ergonomics but it doesn’t hold up for IQ against the ...
  • Replied in Oh yes and...
    ...a pair of Polaroid heavy air cushioned stands that are part of a background frame. These are very sturdy, large (11’ high?) and air cushioned. The air cushion is a pain when you’re in a hurry ...
  • I have a Kupo C stand with boom... it’s heavy, smells a bit, but it’s very solid and the knobs are oversized and fantastic. Love it. I have a heavy duty 10’ (I think) Westcott lightstand which is ...
  • I've just set up my studio at work.  Ceiling is 10' high.  The room is 16'x12'.  I have an Elinchrom RX1 (100ws) with a 10' reflector and a 12deg grid (which loses a ton of light).  On its lowest ...
  • AF-S stops focusing when focus has been attained. AF-C could well be in the middle of hunting when you stop it in its tracks with BBF.
  • Correct, and BBF is just as valuable in AFS as it is in AFC. That depends on that your shooting style. It’s not a race, but the thought process of using half button press on the shutter vs full ...
  • How big is your small home studio? I would think for a hair/rim light, 200ws would be more controllable than 400ws. Lights CAN be too powerful, and in a small room, that's where you'll see it ...
  • I consider it the only way to go for most of what I shoot. I did find it hard to get used to and almost gave up on it, while trying, but I stuck with it, and now I've been doing it for several ...
  • Replied in ^^^ this
    I'm puzzled by the 15' rule which I only saw for the first time today in a thread I started.  It could be different definitions of a headshot, which could be as much as a three quarters for ...
  • If you're 10' from your subject, and the subject is not a giant, you'd be shooting at around 200mm for a portrait oriented head and shoulders, at 15', 300mm. Who does that? I like my lighting set ...
  • Actually, you don't know that.  None of us do. It's EASIER to talk about gear because its less subjective.  It's almost scientific, factual.  Also, this is a gear web site. So it's typically what ...
