    At least two DL 25-400s would be required to create one of these.

  • If it were a 1/2.5" it would be f/64 according to my handy Zeiss format comparison table, p.10: https://diglloyd.com/articles/ZeissPDF/ZeissWhitePapers/Zeiss-DepthOfField-Bokeh.pdf.
    So a 1/2.3"...

  • Quelle. One of my favorite catalogs to browse as a kid. We would order quality German products and have them shipped to the USA. I think the name means "a spring" as in so much flows from it. Glad ...
  • The challenge with setting WB is to find something neutral in the photo to act as the reference or anchor around which the other colors will be readjusted. Sometimes you get lucky but I've learned ...
  • The color checker also has a few extra squares for warm and warmer white balance. It's nice to use those for a consistent one-click correction in LR.
  • That's too bad. Hopefully there wasn't a missed shot of something interesting after you put your camera away. Unfortunately, perception plays a large part in life. Back when we were getting ...
  • I make sure to apply sharpening only to edge details. In other words, eyelashes, trees, etc. are sharpened while skies and smooth skin are left alone with just the noise reduction applied. To ...
  • Replied in I'm curious...
    This (bold text) appears to be the only justification. Acknowledging that this is effectively a show but (like the Allies who used inflatable tanks to fool Hitler of their intentions before D-Day,) ...
  • I bolded those words in your quote to point out that In 2015, federal undercover agents during a nationwide airport security effectiveness check showed that TSA failed to catch 95% of contraband ...

    Why are you (and for that matter, the rest of the travelling public) putting up with that nonsense? A few years ago, when Bank of America decided to raise fees on (I think it was) debit cards and ...

  • Hopefully, you will get the point. And I would NOT ask the chef's who prepared the above that question either.
  • Replied in Some examples:
    Notice how the sharpest number goes from 100 to 90 as you click on f/1.4 vs f/4 on this lens testing site: http://www.opticallimits.com/nikon_ff/441-nikkor_afs_50_14_ff?start=1 100 is sharpest here ...
  • He's referring to the hyperfocal distance. This article explains the concept and a few ways of finding the 1/3 of the way point. This point actually varies but 1/3 is close enough. https://photogra ...
  • My preference is to pick the most interesting part of the scene and focus on that letting the rest rely on DOF. As long as you only view the entire image at once, in other words from a distance ...
  • Set the camera to manual mode and use a very slow shutter speed like 1 second so that you have enough time to see the aperture close down during the picture taking. Then change apertures and try again.
  • To start with, I would hire Art Wolfe spend a few days to show me how to take better landscape photos, Then I'd move to some of my favorite portrait photographers and finally street/candid shooters. ...
