  • You should bring this one: http://petapixel.com/2011/08/18/worlds-largest-camera-back-in-1900/ It easily fits in the back of a truck (portable) and only takes a crew of 6 to rig up.  Also, its ...
  • I have several.  Anything more goes in a pillow case or a card  board box.
  • Yes, it is, so what. And, yes you are aging cynic but I suspect you earned to right to be.  Like me.
  • Yes, at 10 bucks a month PS is well worth it for me.  I'm a PS power user (and have been for years).  I never use LR although it comes with the month PS subscription.  I might use LR someday but ...
  • I like Nike Define 2; and, the last I checked (6 months ago) it was free.
  • Hell, even my own family does not care about my photography.  My wife (bless her heart) has frequently expressed concerns about all the 'stuff' in my studio and how to 'dispose' of it when I ...
  • The basic premise – no one cares about your work (i.e., your photography),  is correct.   I reword this slightly by saying most do not care about your work. You may find a few that do; but most ...
  • Nice work
  • I print my best work, often as 16” x 20” (or larger) images.  My ‘best’ work turns out to be about 1 to 2% of my total finished output.  Work not printed gets posted or turned over to the customer ...

  • My work as a pool/spa photog has required replacement of sky often. Over the last 8 years I've tried numerous methods including various section and masking techniques. For me, the simplest way ...
  • Osvaldo Are you related to the modern artist Cristo?  Just curious.  Some think his work is worthless and intrusive.  I love it. http://christojeanneclaude.net/ In general, I enjoy modern art as it ...
  • Hi Marty I order a lot from both B&H and Amazon, but will not order expensive photographic material from Amazon.  In particular, I will never again order fine art paper from Amazon. Two orders of ...
  • Thanks Jagzz That was very kind of you.
  • B&H is it form me. I used to order from Amazon but twice goods arrived damaged.  Yes, Amazon was good about replacing the item but who wants to go through that process. The problem I found with ...
  • I'm really impressed with the care that B&H takes to package my orders for shipment.   Over years I've ordered a lot of equipment from B&H and it has always arrived in excellent condition; never a ...
  • I have been a subscriber to Aperture (magazine) for many years.  Aperture helps exposure me to other ways of thinking and different perspectives in terms of photography. I really like the current ...
