  • Yes, the size is limiting, but you can do a lot more with a small studio than with no studio at all. For conventional model photography with a standing model you will be limited to 3/4 length or ...
  • As others have said, it really comes down to personal preference and working style. Unless you are pressed for money I suggest you try the 25 and see how it fits in for you. I can tell you that for ...
  • Admittedly it's a pretty limited thing, but maybe enough to move someone to seek out the real thing. I like that it does present all the photos in order. EDIT: Also to my mind it borders on ...
  • Replied in Exactly!
    Good summation. I think that's about as well as it can be said in a single paragraph. And photographers and painters continue to experiment with new looks and to seek new inspiration. Today we see ...
  • Apologies for the incorrect link. Here's the Youtube link to The Americans -- all the photos in sequence in just under 6 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-01NkUGBO8
  • Actually a "snapshot" style is highly regarded in some fine art circles. From Wikipedia -- "The term snapshot aesthetic refers to a trend within fine art photography in the USA from around 1963. ...
  • Replied in New Cameras
    Don't worry about it. As Chris noted above, there are only a couple of cameras in the market that prioritize video over stills. And some of the technology driven by video can benefit still ...
  • Replied in Instagram API
    My thinking - which does not really match what I'm doing - is that FB and IG get the word out, reach new people and grab attention. Then use them to direct the most interested audience to a ...
  • I have a few on file, not many at this point. The last family gathering before my sister died of cancer is one I kept. I realize cards may not be readable "forever," but I trust solid state more ...
  • Just in general, I'd suggest three things -- - Your portfolio should showcase your best work. In that case it's a moving target. I've been doing photography 50 years and I'm still getting better. ...
  • If it is off by more than a very small amount I would suspect the lens. Adapters can vary, but usually not that much. Probably easiest and cheapest way to diagnose your problem is to pick up ...
  • Replied in Cheaper here:
    Or for half that price here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Neewer-CN-16-102PCS-LED-Light-Dimmer-Lamp-for-Speedlite-Canon-Nikon-Sony-Samsung/310802732486?epid=1720556903&hash=item485d4955c6:g:cy4AAOSw-jh ...
  • Yes. Just don't set it on fire, or melt it. And be sure to have solid support with umbrellas, whatever light you use. With cool lights you should have minimal problems. As to spill, every light is ...
  • I don't know that there is any great harm or risk in deleting individual images, but I often hear it is not a good thing so I avoid it. The only time I delete an image in camera is when something ...
  • Replied in Rather Good
    This is at least the third instance I have heard of lately of Panasonic refusing to repair high end lenses - one a close friend. Perhaps that explains the timing. My own experience with Panasonic ...
  • Replied in Choice is good
    Within m4/3 you can have a very small and light kit, or you can have full-on professional capability and still come in at 1/2 to 1/3 the size and cost of a full-frame kit of similar capability. Per ...
  • ... I like this and hope it's on track. This is much what I was hoping for, but I was too lazy to try to work out the math.
  • Global shutter could potentially fix the motion distortion problems of the current electronic shutter. Also could possibly offer native high-speed flash sync, or at least some flash sync with ...
  • Like a lot of people these days I have friends scattered all over the country, and a few outside the borders. Facebook, Instagram and the rest have been great for keeping in touch -- with personal ...
  • If it's an good conversation who cares who started it, or if it was a bot? I look to learn, and I try to pay back by contributing. Or sometimes I'm just looking to be entertained. I try to avoid ...
