  • Replied in Inconsistent...
    Then your style is inconsistent. The PP is not over the top on the first few, but it is on the last three. If your client is going to use these on a website, etc. they should all have the same ...
  • You can't. Olympus OMD M10  Mark II,  14mm-42mm kit zoom, 40-150mm kit zoom, 25mm f/1.7  prime all will comst less than the FZ 1000 and have better IQ.  Any combination will be smaller and lighter ...
  • So called Full Frame is an accidental format with a bad DOF profile for out of studio shooting. It is difficult to use lenses having apertures faster than f/2 without running into DOF being too...

  • Replied in M 4/3.....
    As others have said, it kind of depends on what lenses you need. For me, I often use legacy lenses for telephoto on my mirrorless body. These lenses usually cost about $20.00 each. But for new ...
  • Replied in Heads...
    Heads not chopped off.... that is good. PP a little over the top. Everything else very nice. Can we see the unprocessed versions? tEdolph
  • Best lenses at the best prices. Good sensor based image stabilization makes any lens you put on it stabilized. Everything else is details. tEdolph
  • Replied in DOF
    The post processing is nice.  I might have stopped down just a bit more maybe f/2, possibly f/2.8 to get all of her hair in focus. I probably would have bracketed a few shots around f/2 to see ...
  • Replied in Huge....
    Those things are huge compared to a cell phone. There are smaller options with similar image quality. Tedolph
  • That's the problem with these all in one pro-sumer cameras.  They are ridiculously expensive when new-more than their ICL counterparts with comparable lenses. Even used/NOS, they are still more ...
  • The sony is not a DSLR. Big jump Sony lenses are big, and the better ones are expensive. Take a look at the all in one travel cameras like the LX-100 Mark I (not mark II), or if you want ...
  • Replied in Take the G16....
    Take the G16.  It's good enough for travel unless you are printing huge. TEdolph
  • Use your head, and a little bit of math. Some studio strobes have an output of 1200 Watt-seconds. That flash is very short in duration, maybe only 1/10,000 of a second so it is tolerable by a ...
  • Replied in Help....
    Let me help you out here and answer directly. The thinking is that a certain portion of consumers are fools and will buy the next "best thing" regardless of how stupid it is.  Continuous lighting ...
  • Replied in Neither....
    Neither one is suitable for portraits. The package with the hair light does not have enough light for portraits. If you out enough light in it so you can stop down to f/5.6 at base ISO you will ...
  • It makes a difference because continuous lights, in the stills world are designed for still life shots of inanimate objects. In the video world, continuous lights of lower power are designed to ...
  • Replied in Whoa!
    Whoa! What is going on with the background?  Look at those blown out highlights with banding around them-looks very unnatural.  Maybe turned up the saturation too much?  Maybe did something else ...
  • Wedding photographers rely on flash almost exclusively for the pre-ceremony and reception shots.  Nikon, and then Canon excel here, Sony not so much. As for format, if I was starting from scratch ...
  • You can do so with stobes as well-they have something called modeling lights. Continuous lights are fine for video, but a disaster for still shots of people.  Many models can not tolerate being ...
  • Replied in Topic...
    Of course they are. The topic of this thread is the post processed version of a photo from another thread. On topic comments would be comments relating to that photo. Anything else is off topic. It ...
