    A story came out this week.  Netflix is responsible for 15% of internet usage aleady - and that is predominantly 1080p.  So, no doubt as more and more people replace their old 1080p sets with 4k ...
  • If you have to shoot in midday sun, position yourself so the sun is in front of your subjects.  Shoot a manual exposure and expose for faces, not uniforms. That concept works for backlit as well ...
  • Everything else depends on what your business goals are.  Is this business a side hussle where you'll be glad to earn $5,000 - $10,000 a year?  Or is it intended to be the primary source of your ...
  • Ah, ok.  I understand.  In my personal case: I maintain photo albums for every year of various family photos.  I choose physical photo albums with the pictures in them.  While you could create an ...
  • See below - outside of initial editing, my workstation isn't how I enjoy my photos after processing. Questioning why I utilize an ILC at all.  Suggesting that if I don't print larger than 5x7 I ...
  • I have a 27" calibrated 1080p monitor.  While I've looked at images on a 4k monitor I really don't see how it would change my workflow at all. I occasionally print larger canvas prints but that is ...
  • As others mentioned - for TV viewing it's a complete waste.  People aren't going to move their coaches/chairs up to 6 feet away when they're 10 feet away now.  They're just not.  Most households, ...
  • Dom - I'm sorry, but I don't see anything compelling about this vantage point.  I still stand by my statement - serve shots are boring.  It's like shooting a free-throw shot in basketball.  There ...

    And, there's the other point - she got a picture because she had her phone with her.  Plenty of people don't want to carry around another camera.  So, it's either a photo that isn't technically as ...
  • Replied in Let's summarize
    Both dedicated cameras and the latest smartphones have their place.  Manufacturer's are smart - they're putting a LOT of technology and resources into improving the quality of photos people take ...
  • Exposures are good and color is good.  And, photos are reasonably sharp.  So, now for the tough part: 1. Ignore everything about the serve.  They're easy shots to take but they're boring and they ...
  • It all really comes down to why you are shooting and what you are going to do with your shots.  In all cases, front lit is preferable.  But with son going down and a choice between backlit or sidelit:
  • Replied in Tall monopod
    $105.  It's their tallest current monopod. https://www.manfrotto.us/xpro-monopod-four-section-aluminum-photo-monopod
  • Replied in lenses
    Not sure what camera(s) you already own.  But, with sports shooting, the lens is usually more important than the body.  So, with that in mind: 1. What camera(s) do you already own? 2. Are you being ...

    I didn't say you were a "nobody".  And, it actually is an important part of the question.  Whether or not you include or exclude location data has any negative impact on that location is precisely ...
  • Replied in agree
    Most sports photographers understand the importance of faces.  When I see a series of photos where there is more emphasis on a butt than a face, that really comes across as adolecent. When I was ...
  • All grey market means is that the camera was supposed to sell overseas.  There isn't much inherently wrong with buying grey market - as long as it's from an reptuable dealer.  I would never buy ...
  • It sounds like you're more interested in the NATURE aspect of the story. But, plenty of people are much more interested in the HUMAN aspect of the story.  While there is nothing wrong with your ...
  • Replied in and
    Let's not forget that 35mm did become the dominant format. For the vast majority of professional photographers - people earning the majority of their living wage from photography - gear buying is a ...
