  • Lovely narrative and image. :-) A sincere thanks for your creating, and sharing.
  • It is good to see this, a positive bit of news among the gloomy social isolation, cancelled plans, and continued travel restrictions. I cannot afford to be an early adopter, but at least I know...

  • 1. I do not like electronic viewfinders. They are not quite there, yet. They blind me at night*. The lag and differences in brightness annoy me when I shoot with both eyes open, which is how I ...
  • My last B&H order was shipped in early January, if I remember correctly, but I will not hesitate to order again, when my budget allows. (It is going to take a while to recover from buying two ...
  • The only older Canon L lens that has disappointed me, and has yet to have a newer version introduced, is the EF 180/3.5L. It has slow AF, has trouble acquiring focus, and no IS, but otherwise, I ...
  • LTM-to-M adapters will work. High ISO shooting will be a limitation, compared to the newer M10 and Type 246, and compared to many other cameras. I started with an M10, having never used a Type 240, ...
  • The Otus lenses may not be used by many portrait shooters. I bought my 1,4/85mm Otus ZF.2 for landscapes and nature photography. I have yet to use it all that much, but none of my Otus images I ...
  • In the absence of new models, with new technology, manufacturers tend to wither and die. I may not buy an R5, but I hope for its success, so that Canon thrives. So, yes, it is about both...

  • I have yet to become interested in videography, but as Canon has been my primary system, since 2010, I have accumulated a considerable number of lenses, Speedlites, batteries, and such, so this is...

  • Replied in Lady In Red
    Lovely image.
  • Well, birds are interesting, and, they rarely stop and pose, in convenient places, for a good composition. For me, at least, it really is/was that simple, at least in the beginning. A well-done BIF ...
  • Both eyes open reduces eye strain AND increases awareness of surroundings, plus, allows better tracking of a moving subject, which is a bit different from “surroundings,” and, of course, results ...
  • This is why it is so difficult to answer all of the questions regarding the “best” lens for “walking around.” :-) For some, a 100-400mm lens is, indeed, best-suited. Be safe and well!
  • Glad to share. I do wish I could have been more helpful about starting forensic photography, from scratch, today. A related field of endeavor may be medical photography. Much of my photography of ...
  • I do not need to buy anything. I already have the best macro lenses money can buy, and capable cameras upon which to use them, plus, capable flash: Canon EF 100/2.8L Macro IS. (IS = Image ...
  • She went to medical school in Poland. She was born in the USA, to Polish parents, and attended the university in Wroclaw, during a thaw in the Cold War. When the Polish government cracked-down on ...
  • As I indicated in my earlier post, becoming a forensic/evidentiary/crime scene photographer was incidental to my already being a police patrol officer. I have considered the possibility of a ...
  • You may want to aim at something different than a criminal justice degree. Forensic Science might be better, because one may be expected to process a scene, not just photograph it. I see nothing ...
  • I was, from 2010 to very early 2018, when I retired. My wife was, from 1994 to 2015, when she retired. 1. I worked for Houston PD, in Texas. My wife worked for the Harris County M.E. Her employer ...
  • Images created by Margaret Bourke-White, Dorothea Lange, and Robert Capa captured my attention, at an early age. I was interested in history, while pre-teen, and journalism, by my mid-teens. I was ...
