  • Replied in Not Beta?
    It's NOT stable, and it will break your database if you rely on the less crash-prone v15. However, when it works, it's amazing. This is another nail in Adobe's coffin for sure, once they iron out ...
  • Nice composition, but the light is too flat for my taste, I'd separate key and fill a wee bit more to create some depth, but that's just my personal preference, and might not apply to what you're ...
  • Those are REALLY good for a first shoot man! What I'd adjust for the next time: - Notice that their lowest shoulder is away from us? Try turning that around next time so they are lowering the ...
  • I gave up waiting on them to get around to implementing search across ALL my images, and am now using Lightroom like everyone else. They have a fantastic way of keywording, but it's no use when you ...
  • Thanks Karen, yes I was thinking about strip softboxes :) That look intrigues me, I tend to like it :) I looked through your site, looks very nice! I love the huge previews!
  • I was just going to say the same :) Guess I can add this: Avoid saying "SMILE!" or "1,2,3!" or things like that, it'll stress them into a fearful or weird  state, eyes wide open with a weird mouth ...
  • Created discussion thread 3 Strip lights for headshots?
    Hi - got some studio lights, nothing fancy, but been bitten by Peter Hurley's setup and was curious wether you can do 3 strip lights for some of the same light effect as he does with his constant ...
  • Replied in GodOx V860II-S
    I may be expecting too much coming from Nikon CLS to Sony :) Not a big deal, the EV is adjusted fine using the wheel on-camera, and for radio, I only need to fiddle with the godox remote, all good.
  • Created discussion thread GodOx V860II-S
    Hey everyone. I've a question about this flash. After successfully having forgotten to swap it back from "remote" to "local" flash (and by the way, that will produce some strange behavior from the ...
  • We just use phones and email. Or just send a text message to eachother to swap numbers. Modern days, modern solutions - save the forest (that's me just trolling)
  • Now you're just trolling :) I know my keywords and have a satisfactory controlled vocabulary, now what I am after is a DAM that can help me find images. Say for example that you'd like to find all ...
  • Well, last I checked, PhotoShop and LR did not preserve the original EXIF or IPTC embedded in a file. Should be easy to verify, tag an image using LR, then export it to, say jpg or TIFF and check ...
  • Well, first, you can start looking here: https://iptc.org/ People who do photography for a living (mostly in press / magazines, not arts maybe) know perfectly well the requirements for IPTC and ...
  • Yes, I use PhotoMechanic for culling and tagging all my images, but it's not useful for searching for tags afterwards. I've been waiting for years for their "database" but it doesen't seem to come ...
  • Not interested in Adobe - and IPTC can be embedded into even text files. Why would I want DNG?
  • Created discussion thread Photo Browser software
    Hey all! Every so often (about once every 2 years) I'll ask the question about what kind of software you use to BROWSE your images with. Ever since I stopped using FotoWare for handling my ...
  • I work in Microsoft and often travel around the globe. In my experience, the only places business cards are a thing are in Asia and India. Other lines of business may have different cultures of ...
  • Depends on where you go and what you do. India and Asia still have major ceremony around business cards, and if you appear there without them, they will look strangely at you. In the western world, ...
  • Yes I did, I sent the message on a friday evening, and on Monday morning I had a reply. It was simply a firmware update that was missing and now it timelapses like a king! It still feels a little ...
  • So I mounted my Spark on my sony, connected it via the provided USB cable to my A7R mk.3, and figured I'd try a timelapse. I was at a hotel in Seattle with a great view of a busy street crossing. I ...
