    The manual for the YN-E3-RT shows a 2.5 jack cable.... but my YN-E3-RT has no 2.5 socket in that location. Only the mini usb.
  • A Limited edition has greater perceived value due to scarcity. Print the image with a blank border around it and then sign the border and number the print. Never put a watermark on the image.
  • 1. RAW only. No point in storing JPEGs unless you want them for a slideshow on your PC. If I am sharing images online (Flickr/Instagram etc) I just use Lightroom's Publish feature which posts a ...
  • That won't work as the YNE3-RX doesn't have a 2.5mm socket. It only has a mini USB and a PC port.
  • The answer to the second part of your question is that it isn't worth weather sealing sub $1,000 consumer cameras because the photographers that use them aren't weather sealed and so will never ...
  • When dealing with the interpretation of a term used by another party the only reliable source for a definition is that other party. They are the ones who are going to sue if they believe your ...
  • I didn't miss that the image was a throw away. My point was that PP alone isn't going to get you what you want. That a key part of the final image is the starting image and that, if you want to ...
  • One of the key factors with the images you linked to is that they are backlit with bright areas of sky/windows showing in the background that contribute to the blow out look (and some OC lighting ...
  • I like the minimal style but there is too much empty/negative space at the top of the page/the front page images are too small. Also the light background makes the light grey and yellow text hard ...
  • Buying a better camera (now or in a year) will not make your photos better and it will not make you a better photographer. What will make you better is a year of practice and experience taking ...
  • Not if you are processing a RAW file because PS can't process RAW files.... that is what ACR/Lightroom are for. To process a file in PS it has to be converted to an RGB image file such as a TIFF ...
  • 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 ...

    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 ...
