  • Thanks for the responses. I need to reprint this image in a much smaller version than A1 (maybe A3) to allow room for the mat. The A1 turned out pretty decently but after you add the mat and frame ...
  • Created discussion thread Prepping an Image for Printing
    Perhaps this would be better in the "Printers and Printing" forum but I'm not actually doing the printing, so I thought I'd ask here. When you prepare your image to be printed, do you use Lightroom ...
  • I was looking to utilize the focus bracketing feature of the XT2 and was wondering if there was a way to do it with a manual focus lens. Seeing that the answer is no and I am not very good using ...
  • I was wondering if that was going to be the solution. It sounds like what you're saying is that with manual focus lenses the bracketing feature won't work. If that's the case, I'll just have to ...
  • I did a search and didn't find anything that matches what I'm looking for, but if there is a thread please point me in the right direction. I may have used the wrong search criteria. As I continue ...
  • Thanks for everyone's help with this. I ended up with the Manfrotto 055CXPro4 and a Manfrotto BHQ2 ball head. I took it out today to test everything out and it all works exactly as it should. This ...
  • Thanks to everyone for all of the recommendations. There are a lot of replies and I'm not sure I can reply to all of them, so I'll try and reply to some of the themes I picked up on. I do go hiking ...
  • Created discussion thread Tripod Recommendation for Hiking
    I ordered an XT2 with the Samyang 12mm and 18-55mm lens which should be arriving soon. I'm looking for recommendations for tripods that are light enough and durable enough to go hiking/backpacking ...
  • The 18-55mm is also a good option. I should have mentioned that I would like to get some astrophotography shots, which is why I was leaning away from the 10-24mm and towards the 12mm because of ...
  • Thanks to both you and phototeacher for the information. Unfortunately the 16-55mm is more than I wanted to spend right now. I've also looked at the 15-45mm but it's a power zoom. I suppose I ...
  • After browsing B&H a bit longer, I'm beginning to wonder if it would be worth it to get the Samyang 12mm lens and another zoom lens for more flexibility. Would that be a better route to go? If so, ...
  • Thanks. That being the case, I don't think I want the 18-135mm Fuji lens to start with then as I definitely want an ultra wide angle lens for landscapes. I'll collect other lenses as I move ...
  • Where is the package with the 18-135mm? I didn't see it on B&H's website. As a separate question, I've read that Fuji lists their lens sizes in 35mm equivalents. Is there any truth to this? If not, ...
  • Thanks for the information. It looks like I should be set with the camera and lens. I'll want to get a better tripod but that's for another day. I was all set to get a Nikon but when I compared the ...
  • Created discussion thread XT2 Purchase Questions
    I've finally decided on the XT2 as the camera I want to upgrade to (from a Sony RX100iii) with the 10-24mm f/4 R OIS lens. My primary objective is landscapes, hence the 10-24mm lens. Before I ...
  • Thanks. I'm currently using a Sony RX100iii, so I'm fairly limited with what I can do. That being said, are there any tricks I can use given the equipment I have to achieve something similar? I ...
  • Created discussion thread Composition/Depth of Field Question
    How are shots taken with what seems like objects that appear larger in the foreground and then extend into a background, all of which is sharp and in focus? Is this a depth of field thing or is it ...
  • Thanks for the tips. I went with a layer mask to try and get rid of the clouds, which worked. Now it's a matter of playing around with the gradients and making it smooth across the image. Thanks ...
  • Thanks for the feedback. Here is the photo that I'm trying to apply the effect to.
  • What program is that? I'm using Lightroom and Photoshop. I am trying to remove clouds from the photo and then add in a gradient-style background like the one in the example. I may be over ...
