  • +1 for Bay Photo. I've used them for metal prints for more than a decade.  They were one of the first places to offer metal prints and continue to do and they do an excellent job Regards,
  • Not enough information... What material do you want to print on? Paper is easy... most any inkjet printer will work with commercial 'sticker paper ' that is available in letter sized sheets. If you ...
  • The breakwater (local horizon) is dead center in the frame. Additionally,  the sky is not adding anything to the story. I think that if you cropped down from the top to just above the light post, ...
  • I use an archival print sleeve made of plastic to protect the print but acid free tissue paper would also work. The key is to tape the protected print to the middle of cardboard so it doesn't move ...
  • Replied in Tripod issue
    Arca-Swiss plates will not fit your current head. You might be able to replace just the clamp on your head, but from the photos I can see on the web, I doubt it. As for L-plates, they are generally ...
  • You need to provide more specificity to get a good answer... "budget" and mid tier" are vague. They will have vastly different meanings to different folks. Even your request for "in the sub $150 ...
  • Replied in Tripod issue
    Have you tried Ellis' suggestion? Often times the hole for the mounting screw is just a tad short. This means that you can not tighten the plate on as well as it should be. The solution is to ...
  • I would not roll a print that small for shipping. Instead, I would cut two 14" squares of corrugated cardboard. I would place the print in a plastic sleeve and tape it to the middle of one of the ...
  • With a typical digital camera color filters don't even offer convenience..They are useless on a camera with a color sensor just like they were with color film. Unless, of course,  you are wanting ...
  • Hmmm. No response from the OP in 4 days, but I'll respond anyway. You have received lots of good information in the previous responses. The bottom line is unless you are planning to make really, ...
  • I have heard similar stories a number of times over the years. Personally, I think that all super telephotos should come with a bright red warning label stating that one will need to also purchase ...
  • I agree and use an early set of carbon fiber legs from Giotto with a Wimberly and a 600 mm f/4 myself. That said, I used an set of aluminum legs for many years before carbon fiber legs were ...
  • He should buy the tallest, sturdiest tripod that he can afford and that he is willing to carry (in terms of weight). For super telephoto work one needs a really sturdy tripod. A tall tripod is ...
  • The number of screws on the standard plate is not the issue. Rather it is the number of mounting holes on the lens foot that would matter. I am not too familiar with the Manfrotto clamp system ...
  • Certainly try some blue Loctite on the threads. That will be better than nothing. I don't know that lens specifically, nor do you mention what tripod head you are using (or more specifically does ...
  • Shoot RAW to give yourself the most latitude for adjustments Under expose so that you don't blow out the red channel. It helps if you camera can display histograms for the individual channels. Proc ...
  • A few thoughts,  but first a caveat,  I print with Epson printers and have done so for 10+ years, so I don't really know the full market. That said, printers that support Epson's Advanced Black and ...
  • Replied in Cyanotype
    That is a very nice print! You are correct... there are many ways to make art, including cyanotypes.  Use whatever works for you and gives results that match your vision. Be careful, though... ...
  • Replied in troubleshoot
    I am not sure that having the filer on when it is not really needed is part of the problem since I have no idea what the colors were like. But if there were some blue/gray rocks in the mix they ...
  • Interesting photo,  but not strictly IR. By my chemist's definition  IR is defined as wavelengths between 750 or 780 nm and 1000 mm. Thus, your photo contains a significant contribution from ...
