Dan Marchant's recent activity

  • I agree with Vidau and Bassam. I don't think that the viewer "can see it without explanation" due to the fact that the subjects are largely hidden (child behind bush, woman turned away from ...
  • In that case all you need to do would be to find a vantage point that is outside the danger zone. I don't think there is a person whose job it is to photograph wild fires. The local newspaper may ...
  • The only way to get past those roadblocks will be to hike around them. Also don't be surprised if those fire fighters aren't quite so appreciative of you endangering their lives, because those ...
  • Prohibited by law from shooting for free for a friend? No. However that doesn't mean that the immigration department will actually believe that that is what is happening and if they don't believe ...
  • I'm not talking about people who made statements without knowing what they were talking about. I'm talking about people who, after the 5DIII was out, decided it wasn't a justifiable upgrade. Again ...
  • Replied in Yes
    You can claim whatever you want but unfortunately the immigration dept staff are neither stupid, nor do they have to work on the basis of innocent until proven guilty. If someone has reported you ...
  • Replied in Yes
    There are certainly cases of people being refused entry because they did not have a work visa and the immigration/customs believed they were there to work. Having Photographer listed as your ...
  • No. The local adjustment tool is an excellent tool for balancing exposures across different areas of an image. I think some people (especially those who grew up on Photoshop) find it a little ...
  • Replied in 5DII to 5DIII
    I remember when the III came out a lot of 5DII owners said they wouldn't upgrade.... and rightly so. The IV is just the latest iteration of the 5D. People looking to move up to a 5D will likely ...
  • That was with a rocket blower. I have never wet cleaned the sensor. The camera has been to the desserts of Namibia, the beach and several other dusty places. I always let the auto sensor clean run ...
  • You got some great expressions but not enough body (apart from on the little chap in the first shot). I realise you were probably limited by both space and available light. Unfortunately I find ...
  • You need to tell us exactly what you are doing for us to know if you are doing something wrong. You said you aren't applying a preset so that means that the problem is the result of any default ...
  • Wow no backups? That is scary bad. Even the worst host I have known had daily backups. I have used 1&1 for some years. They are a pretty solid if unexciting host. However I am currently moving all ...
  • I am typing this within spitting distance of the South China Sea. 1. I have never found bright sunlight to bleach colours if the image is properly exposed. 2. Bright overhead sunlight does produce ...
  • Yes the Library module in Lightroom serves the same purpose as Bridge, but actually has some features that Bridge doesn't (I don't believe that Bridge supports Virtual Copies).
  • That's your problem right there. You seem to think your lone opinion is a viable sample size despite the fact that everyone else is disinterested. Still there is no reason to accept our opinions. ...
  • Replied in What Mako said
  • To answer your question, I would have zero interest in such a device. In all my years taking photos I have never once heard anyone complain that the screen they were using doesn't display some of ...
  • +1 to the above. Catalog size is irrelevant because LR doesn't access the entire catalog at once. Processing and viewing speed is down to the computer hardware. You need a decent CPU, and SSD ...
