  • AI is certainly a buzz word that gets bandied around a lot and probably gets misused to some extent. I think the results are extremely variable. When they refer to AI, are they referring to real ...
  • Replied in It can...
  • I usually have it turned off, but if I have a subject who won't stay still, I use it to help the subject focus on the task at hand (pardon the pun). Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  It's ...
  • Usually full manual, but if I'm running around in lots of different lighting environments, I might use manual with auto ISO. Why?  Because I know what shutter speed I want for a particular activity ...
  • I had no aspirations of becoming a professional photographer. I applied for the position with no intention of ever even being put in the position of having to decide whether to accept it or not. ...
  • Point is, I've never thought of a turning point based on one gig. In fact, I was working as a full time photographer for quite some time before I thought I deserved to call myself a professional ...
  • No.  I've never thought that one shoot would suddenly qualify me to be a pro.
  • I don't use the term, but to those who do, I suspect it means as soon as you press the shutter, it's ready for production.  That means composition, framing, shutter speed, ISO, focus, aperture and ...
  • I used to have a Sigma 100-400.  Not fast, but lightweight, relatively compact, and really sharp, end to end.  Great lens.  I have a Nikon 200-500, which is a lot bigger, but is also really ...
  • I clean mine every couple of months. I rarely shoot at narrow apertures, but I always make sure my sensor is clean before I do group portraits especially. I do change lenses very frequently and ...
  • Not me.  I'll take EVF, thanks.  I just wish my Z7II focused as quickly as my D850.
  • Yes, I think all of what you say above rings true for me.  I never used to see the point of primes.  Now I do 90% of my work with them. I like the restriction, and when it doesn't work, I usually ...
  • I don't have an iPhone.
  • I like my Moto360 3rdGen because it looks good, and I get to design my own watch faces. This is one of them, and I think its pretty unique. It's all working, and takes elements of programming, ...
  • Sorry for being dense (no degree). I still don't get the point of your response to my earlier post. Still, I figure I'm still in for a chance at being a giant in the field.  Afterall, I have "other ...
  • So if I want to be a giant in the field, most influential or whatever, I need a degree?  :-D
  • I don't think that quite represents the state of the industry.
  • Being a photographer doesn't require a degree. :-|
  • At 53, I have a few different backgrounds - - left school at 17 and spent 15 years in administration (government, insurance, theatre management), and music performer as an interest. - next 15 years ...
  • I don't have any kit lenses, but my Nikon zooms are as sharp as my Nikon primes (my Sigma primes are a little sharper).  I use primes mostly for greater light gathering (wider apertures) and ...
