  • I don't have any local family, except my wife and dogs, none of whom like to be photographed.
  • I've had three Lexar SDXC cards fail. Yes, they were always formatted in camera (before the start of every job) and handled carefully.  Still to this day don't know why they stopped working - or ...
  • Are you converting your library from the old version or just using a new one? No question, Lightroom has got slower over the years, but I must say, my Surface Pro 3 is way underpowered compared to ...
  • Its terrible. The fact that it doesn't calculate a specific plane of focus is key. It's a pointless technology until that happens. I thought that was supposed to be one of the points of having...

  • Then I would start with a 24-70 f/2.8, and then go for either a 70-200 or something in the range 200-500 or even 100-400 depending on how far your wildlife is from you. The 100-400/200-500 will be ...
  • I use a Surface Pro 3 and I’m patiently waiting for delivery of its replacement, a Dell XPS15. The Dell is much more computer for much less money than a new Surface Pro, which I did consider. I ...
  • I never use a prime for improved image quality. I only use it for environmental portraiture for a shallower depth of field and in the studio because an 85mm f/1.8 looks less intimidating to people ...
  • What do you take photographs of? R.
  • Have you established how much light there is in the room?  You mention floor lighting, but not ceiling lighting.  Is the floor lighting all there is?  have you done any test shots in there or ...
  • Ordered an in stock laptop from Dell. A week later they cancel the order and start a new one delivery shifts by 10 days. Getting closer to the delivery date and it shits by another 10 days. Annoyin ...
  • For me, its events - in particular, receptions. They're always overcrowded, no one wants to see people eating, and posed shots look... well, posed. I always struggle to get a set of images that I'm ...
  • Replied in Pixel Peepers
    Happiness is key for sure... in general. However, unhappiness can cause a conflict that stirs its own interest that can make pixels as a group, compelling. One might argue that considering them as ...
  • Replied in I leap
    I buy when my camera doesn’t do what I need it to do and because I research quite thoroughly, I’m able to leap. My main motivator is not having to constantly learn new tools. I think there’s ...
  • Lenses should be smaller on the D500 to fill the frame in the same way as on the A7III.  Tracking with the D500 is fantastic.  I can't compare to the A7III because I've never used it. Weather ...
  • I have a Canon printer. I don’t use it much but the ink doesn’t dry out so it always seems to perform when I need it. I use it because it’s easier to get the colours I want when I print myself.
  • New editing laptop for me. I’ve mostly stopped buying camera gear.
  • Replied in Nothing...
    Haven’t used a camera since Thursday, when I did some headshots. Tuesday and Wednesday was headshots too. Monday was a horror/Krueger shoot at an abandoned pig farm. Sunday was trying to some ...
  • I'm upgrading and have gone through a similar dilemma.  I prefer a desktop for the ease of needing to replace parts.  I'm not an upgrader (my 9 year old Dell desktop is still working fine, and is ...
  • It has been my day job for just about a year. I work at a university where I photograph a variety of people and things.  I’ve also been working as an arts photographer on the side for three or ...
  • I wouldn't buy a big ticket item from a dealer that doesn't specifically say they are authorized for the manufacturer you're buying into. Even then, you need to be careful, especially buying ...
