  • That’s an interesting combo. I will be investing in a teleconverter in the future so I could give this a shot on my 90mm at that point. I have decided to go with the Sony 200mm 2.8. This way, I ...
  • Created discussion thread Telephoto for macro
    I would like to add a second lens for macro and I am realizing a telephoto is what I need. I Struggle to get butterflies and dragonflies a lot as a result of such a short reach. The telephoto will ...
  • Replied in The Escapist
    thanks! I’m still quite new at this. What is edge burning? looked it up. So the background is too distracting? I’ll work on that burning and vignette.
  • Replied in The Escapist
    An extremely difficult shot for me. These never stop moving and hide constantly when they see you. Was glad to finally capture one. Only a touch of flash was used here, but it added little.
  • Replied in Jumper captures
    This was an interesting shot for me. I actually did not use a flash for this. I attempted to use ambient lighting, a bit of ISO, and a wider aperture. It made this shot extremely difficult, but it ...
  • Go mirrorless and never look back. It just has too many more advantages. There have been several times in macro that I was trying to get the perfect shot with the sun directly behind my subject ...
  • Replied in Never!
    There was a time that I would have given you an adamant and stern “No”, but not any longer. The extended warranty market got extremely competitive a couple years after amazon took off. Now, amazon ...
  • Replied in More Ashley
    When you point it out, I understand what you’re saying. When I looked at the photo the first time, I remember being first drawn to her face because of the lighting, so, IMO, it felt right. I feel ...
  • Captured a few today to wrap up the week nicely.
  • Thought I would share a couple this week.
  • My SSD is my boot up drive. It’s extremely fast for that. At the time, SSDs were still pretty expensive, so I bought a smaller one and it was just meant for gaming. I can have about 2 games ...
  • I generally pull out all highlights and shadows first. Then, Ipull back on the blacks to prevent clipping shadows, next I add back in some whites. Whites usually end up at around 20-30 before they ...
  • Another great option, thanks! I’ll experiment with these and see which I like. I downloaded Photoshop finally. My problem now is that they are forcing me to put them all on my SSD and not my ...
  • I have two of this flower, and honestly, I favor this one, but I still like the affects in the other one. It looks like the sky was painted in to this one. It was peaking out from some trees and ...
  • That’s really what I am looking for; some of the sun’s highlights, but not so much that it distracts from the subject. I wasn’t sure if I had backed them off enough for your eyes to be pulled ...
  • Created discussion thread Leaving some highlights
    I recently edited this photo and wanted to keep some of the highlights in it. I believe that I should back them off until they aren’t distracting from the actual subject, however, when you are ...
  • Cellphones actually take two photographs and combine them to make one good image. This is why there are two lenses. I discovered that using aftermarket lenses on an iPhone, regardless of how good ...
  • Image quality is relative to your ability to take good photos. There is only one thing that I will defend here and that’s the idea that some cameras can be used in Program auto and they take ...
  • I am the same. I’ll do anything for an upgrade. Lol “Yeah, honey, my career depends on these shots...” *buys a9*
  • And that is why I will never enter another a city that does not allow concealed carry. You can’t have so many homeless and criminal activity in such a densely populated area. I Have had a similar ...
