  • Replied in Yes...but also
    Fascinating. I have never considered making gigapixel stitched images from my living room studio shots of interesting ladies.
  • Replied in Lots Of Noise
    I did not know you could use a 24-120 f4 z lens  or any other Z lens on a D750.  Please clarify. My 24-120 f4 G lens is excellent on a D750.

    Lack of freedom
  • The only critique I take seriously is from the performers I photographed in the performing arts, sports, and related venues. Here is an example.... Leica, Tri-X I was quite happy with this 1975 ...

    Not everyone is as flexible regarding desired quality as you imply. For this shoot, I would have preferred medium format but that was well beyond practical as an amateur photographer. It was ...

    It all depends on what people want.  In this case, the ladies wanted maximum detail for everything.  My error with insufficient Dof  however they found it sufficient. Lighting was carefully done!
  • We are getting close to a peak and maybe we are already there. Just about everybody has and uses a digital phone for some photographs as long as they can afford the purchase cost. The more ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • I rarely find "awful pictures" only different degrees of good.
  • I always try for free from The Camera Store or Canon for however long it takes for the Canon 1D, 5D, or relatively exotic lens. Probably 80% of time I will buy the equipment.  I even picked up the ...
  • Thank-you for your kind and perceptive comments. I definitely had problems cropping these. Hats almost always upset my sense of composition/balance when shooting or editing. I will revisit these.
  • It all depends how you implement continuous AF on your camera. Properly implemented back button focus is usually the most flexible for virtually any subject
  • Replied in Hats
    Thank-you for the unexpected but much appreciated comment. The above image is of my dear friend, excellent artist and favorite model Kat.
  • The only place I share for public views is on  dpreview samples and galleries and in my gallery page. My images are generally not interesting to most Dpreview members. I used to have a server ...
  • Created discussion thread Hats
    Some ladies like hats. Some other ladies prefer to make them like my friend Kat who made these and forces me to take some snaps
  • In 2002, as a reasonably experienced film photographer, I purchased a Fuji S1pro to allow me to evaluate how digital worked for my photography interests. It turned out that it did not work as well ...
  • Since you seem to be shooting with continuous artificial light, the simple solution is to use a less powerful light source in the box. Maybe use a dimmer control? Possibly use a piece of white ...
  • It all depends upon how, when, why you like to control the camera focusing.  I like "back button focus" which enables continuous AF as long as the designated button is depressed. It also removes ...
  • I used to shoot agency comps and portfolios in the 1970s. There were only two viable agencies in Calgary at that time. It is quite interesting to figure out how the needs and styles have changed ...
  • Virtually perfect technically of a lovely lady. In my opinion, it would be nice to see a bit of emotion/feeling in the models face. The RBF style is rather disconcerting!
