Serious amateur with many years of shooting experience. Photography is my passion. And, lately, video is my new found love.

  • Interesting story telling. But the story was diluted and lose a bit its impact with this zoomed out version, which makes the white crosses scattered out. I think if you zoom in to a section with a ...
  • I think you had captured the baby gorilla very nicely. I don't think there is any issue of DoF, or separation issue. You can do some minor touch up and burning to make the baby's face, which is ...
  • I keep a 20mm f/2.8D for my FF camera just in the case I need it. Quite honestly, I seldom bother to change to the 20mm too frequently these days since Photoshop stitching is so easy to do. I would ...
  • A slightly higher grade camera would give you a better range with ISO and IQ. BTW, I thought OP was talking about architectural/environmental portraits, not shooting rates in a tunnel.
  • 1. For a cropped camera, the standard today is 17mm on the wide end, which yields a FF equivalence of 24mm. It is not as wide as 20mm, but good enough for most architectural/environmental shot. 2. ...
  • Sure, having knowledge sure beats not having it. I browse a lot of youTube video for my fitness exercise too because I refused to pay a fitness instructor to follow me for a year (my gym offers ...
  • Let's just agree on the creation part. As for the processing, I am glad you enjoy the chemical darkroom process. I, coming from that era for over 30 years, don't miss that a bit.
  • You forgot one very important aspect of photography, which is, a lot of us shoot to please ourselves. It is a joy to see something entirely created by no one else but myself. If it is just about ...
  • I am pretty sure those 6mp image was run through some pretty expensive and sophisticated image enhancing software before it appears on the billboard. On the other hand, the amount of pixel (psi) is ...
  • I am shooting D800 with 36 mpx too. So if I assume that I am shooting with a FX camera, I would get the equivalence of an APC-S's pixel (approx. 48% of the 36 mpx) and have the effect of a 600mm ...
  • Did you see that movie about Edward Snowdon?
  • I bought one of this on eBay and spent 3 days trying to balance the camera. I concluded that it cannot be done and return it. Maybe the real McCoy, the Glidecam would work better. But then the ...
  • This is A project. To put each day in a different project would be confusing unnecessary. As Sean had recommended, you can create different Bin for each day to keep the footage. Then you can create ...
  • With the newer TV, either 4K or 1080, not only it comes with the USB port(s), it is WiFi YouTube equipped too. So if you have some 4K contend uploaded to YouTube, you can view them in 4K too. Like ...
  • My 80-400G is extremely fast in AF. From infinitive to a 15-20 feet subject is instantaneous. So you're saying that it would slow it down substantially? I wonder if the eIII would do better?
  • Replied in Nikkor 35-70.
    When I shoot closeup/macro, I normally shoot f/5.6 because the macro mode shorten the DOF to nothing and I want the smaller f/stop to give it a little more leeway.
  • Replied in Nikkor 35-70.
    This the most favorite of all Nikon lenses I've ever owned. As a matter of fact, I owned two of them when we were shooting film and I was carry two cameras (one for slide and the other for negative). ...
  • You will see a world of difference if you use a polarizer to eliminate the reflection and turn the water into non-reflective black. You may also want to zoom in to a certain corner where it shows ...
  • For argument's sake, there is a preconceived notion effect in your statement. If one saw my modified image first, he/she would not look at that darken strip because they would not know it was ...
  • I think the subject and the lighting is very interesting. I think you can improve this image's impact by playing around a little with the composition and some highlighting. The area to her rear is ...
