Have fun selling my photographs.

  • You may want to consider 3rd party inks. Some are just as good as Epson inks and are a lot less expensive.  For example, I have had very good luck with ink cartridges from ...
  • Here is a great solution if you don't mind spending a few dollars; The foot is made by Jobu Design. It has enough length to give good balance at all zoom extensions, and is Arca Swiss compatible. H ...
  • You got it correct.  I should have read your post before I posted.  As a result, I say mostly the same thing as you with a few additions.
  • Depends on whether or not you are talking about additive colors or subtractive.  Art schools often don't this right.  If you are using paints they are not pure and are not really additive or ...
  • I see that most of my post has been stated before.  I could delete it, but I have posted some addition information.  (not much) Not sure if someone has already explained this. If so, I apologize ...
  • Replied in 500 vs 600mm
    Not that much difference, but then there is not that much difference between a 400 and a 500.  Still there are times when a small difference is important.
  • Not True.  I am an old guy and I can hand hold this lens.  Sure I have to take breaks, but the extra weight compared to other long lenses is not that big a deal.  And you get the benefits of ...
  • Why should anyone question my use of film. Who are you to question what I enjoy. I'll bet I would not like the music that you listen to. To begin with I enjoy shooting film since it reminds me of ...
  • A completely useless comparison between film and digital.  So much depends on how the digital files are processed and how the film was processed.  Done properly the two images could be made to look ...
  • Hey,  I am looking for an 8" floppy.  Who needs one of those newfangled drives. By the way, I am behind the tines.  I am still using a D800 and an F5
  • My guess is that you did not give the back button focusing a real try.  Half button focusing is not equivalent.  But everyone has a right to their own opinion.
  • I agree completely. l always use the button on the back of my camera to focus.  That gives you so much more control.
  • The camera was in a case with the hood reversed.  At the time I didn't think there was a problem until I took the camera out and found the filter had cracked.  After removing the broken filter I ...
  • I have a 24-70 that I dropped about 18 months ago.  Since then it does feel rough when zooming around 35 mm, clearly impact damage.  The impact broke the filter on the lens.  Other than the slight ...
  • Here is an image of a Retina Reflex IV and an image taken with this camera. Kodak Retina Reflex IV When my brother and I were in high school we shared a Reflex S. This is a non-working copy that I ...
  • It depends on which lens.  For awhile I was using the Nikon 17-55 F2.8 with a Nikon D800.  It was able to cover the full frame down to 24mm.  I used it until I traded for the Nikon 24-70 F2.8.  I ...
  • I don't have any experience with the canonoscan, so I cannot comment on that.  My comparison was to the Epson flatbed scanners.  I agree with other posters that scanning with a camera may take ...
  • I disagree.  If your technique is good, the film is held flat, you use a high quality macro lens, and your focusing is precise, a scan with a DSLR will always beat a scan from an Epson V500, V700 ...
  • Sure there is plenty of money to be spent buying equipment. Sure some photographers make a good living selling photographs as art but there are not very many of them.
  • Adobe is no worse than many other companies.  For example, I have a Monaco monitor profiler that is no longer supported and does not work with modern operating systems.  I had to buy a new Xrite. I ...
