  • Give Uline a look https://www.uline.com/.  They have lots of varieties of shipping mailers, don't know about prices, but they should come as close as any other source. For shippers:  if you find ...
  • Don't forget gobos (bo-betweens), either pre-made or DIY.  B&HPhotoVideo, Adorama, Amazon all have a variety of products.  Combine your colored gels with a gobo for lots of different effects.  ...
  • I upgraded my 5-year old D7000 to a refurb D7200 about 4 months ago, got it for $730.  I see they are now $799 new.  Even with the 35/1.8 the D7000 had the same issues you're experiencing.  The 35 ...
  • Thanks to all for the replies, and thanks for providing my expected responses!  ;-)  Now I can relax. I do know that nothing is 100% reflective, there is always some absorption of energy, I have a ...
  • Are you sure?  I've only seen that bridge in TV shows, and it don't look that good!  If I'd had to guess, it would have been somewhere more exotic. Even more impressed, very nice rendering of the ...
  • Impressive.  I'm pleased when I get anything usable at 1/2 sec. I'm also intrigued by the bridge.  What and where is that bridge, I'd like to Google Earth it.  (Is that a verb?)
  • When I wrote that I've been playing with tabletop photography, what I really meant is that I'm trying to learn it.  Photography is as much a process (photographing) as a means to an end ...
  • I can easily control/adjust the angle & direction of the bounce cards, but the angled ceiling adds challenges to my feeble brain; however... ... "Film" is cheap, fortunately. Someday.  But I need ...
  • Good to know, I might give them a try. All of mine are just the 1/4' thickness.  Never thought to look for anything thicker.  Will look for some when I'm out again. In the meantime, I'll make a ...
  • Thank you.
  • Created question thread Foam core translucency?
    By accident, I just recently discovered that foam core boards are somewhat translucent. Which, in my feeble brain, seems counter-intuitive to what it should be. I have boards from Staples, ...
  • Created question thread Does editing a post bump it?
    I just want to add a note to a week-old post without bumping it up in the forum.  Just in case someone has the same question later.  (Probably highly unlikely, but, you know, Murphy's Law...)
  • Added to my shopping cart. Thank you. My internet searching needed refining, I hadn't come across that yet. Well, if I am the flash, I can't reveal it, now can I?!? ;-) Not quite simultaneously ...
  • Thanks for the info, John. Very helpful. And yes, my goal was to capture an image simultaneously on both cameras. First I tested the YNs with the PEN-F, worked fine, no meltdowns; don't know why I ...
  • Have you considered attaching the black and white foam-core sheets directly to the wall or lockers?  Gaffers tape or lots of 3M removable poster tapes?  It would reduce the amount of gear you had ...
  • Created question thread PEN-F + D7200 + Vivitar 283 + YN605N
    Bet you never thought you'd see a question about THAT combination! Equipment: Olympus PEN-F, Nikon D7200, Vivitar 283 flash, Yongnuo YN605N triggers. (FWIW, I've been using the Nikon/Vivitar/YN605 ...
  • My wife is a "ludd-light" (see what I did there! :-D ).  She  surfs the web, does not do email (yet), plays computer solitaire and other card games, that's pretty much it.  Oh, and a Canon ...
  • Just went down the rabbit hole (aka, the Internet), checking out face mounting.    Just what I needed, another print option!  I've got to get out more, haven't come across any examples. Thanks.  I ...
  • Thank you.  Very helpful.  Hopefully, the OP agrees!  :-)
  • Here's me more than happy to be wrong.  After I got my first batch of 11x17 Polar Pearl Metallic (recently renamed Polar Gloss Metallic), I thought I'd read that pigment was better, and was mildly ...
