  • Replied in Mindset
    D850, the same camera I use for everything else. Casual is more a mindset/pattern of behavior than it is carrying a specific kind of gear.
  • The more of your photographs you show someone, the worse they will perceive you to be. Only show your best stuff, and leave them wanting more, instead of wearing out your welcome.
  • Those are some oddball focal lengths. I don't know that they'd sell well enough to justify their existence. What would be better about these than the existing lenses?
  • 16:9 for most things. I just like the wider shape.
  • At what aperture? I do the bulk of my macro shots between f11 and f22. Even a lens with bad CA wide open looks pretty good when it's stopped down that far, in my experience.
  • That's assuming the exact same framing of the subject (and the examples shown are normally tight headshots) which means having the camera really close to the subject's face with shorter lenses. ...
  • I was in the same situation last year. Got the newest Tamron 45mm f1.8, and it's worlds better in my book. Very happy with it. It's not f1.4, but if you don't even want to use your lens open wider ...
  • Replied in Nikon vs Canon
    It sounds like what you experienced was the difference between a point and shoot camera and a DSLR, not necessarily the difference between a Canon and Nikon. If that is the case, you would have ...
  • No, but my photos would be exactly the same if I could identify them. Whether they were famous photographers from the 1800s, or two homeless guys that you just shot in B&W this week, I would have ...
  • Sean Connery's less successful little brother?
  • Yes, those elusive landscapes are so fast! What was I thinking? I need IBIS and 20 fps to even stand a chance of shooting one. To be perfectly honest, you sound like someone who is completely ...
  • What makes the gorillapod so good is that it's endlessly flexible and adaptable to anything you set it on or wrap it around. You can get exactly the height and angle you want without sacrificing ...
  • I have never heard of shutter shock. Sounds like something you made up. Landscape photographers shoot in mirror up mode, so there is no mirror slap. Landscape photographers shoot on tripods, so ...
  • "Nations Photo Lab offers a wide array of professional paper types including the ever popular Endura Metallic. This particular paper type has added a completely unique dimension for photographic ...
  • I actually don't have non-professional prints. If I'm printing something, it's because someone is buying it from me. That said, I use Nations Photo Lab and get metallic prints. The prices are ...
  • Replied in 200-500mm f5.6
    The 200-500mm f5.6 is the best value in wildlife photography, hands down. It's actually underpriced when you consider how well it performs compared to other long glass and the prices of some of ...
  • I didn't address it because I don't really have that much useful info to share on it. You're largely at the mercy of the venue and the expectations of the people that you're working for. It's ...
  • We all love talking about and buying lenses. However, with portrait photography, having a speedlight(s) and/or studio strobe(s) and learning how to use them will boost the quality of your photos ...
  • In that case, I'd say you can't go wrong with the 24mm f1.8G. I find that mine is pretty sharp across the entire frame, with peak sharpness at around f5.6.
  • But it was a terrible year for me in terms of free time. I settled my father's estate, drove all over the place looking at houses for a couple of months, bought a house in a neighboring state, ...
