About me:

Starting shooting with my dad's Argus C-3 and went on to run my own commercial studio for 25 years.

  • My first foray into digital was with one of the predecessors, the Sony Mavica MVC-FD7 which also stored images on a floppy disk. I was working with a client who was hosting a trade show and he...

  • I agree and over the years I have bought and sold a lot of gear on Ebay, I even liquidated most of my studio there when I quit studio work and went completely digital. The fees are too high and I ...
  • This  lens is on the top of my "To Buy" list! I've been leaning towards more fast prime's with my Canon 5Ds. I got the Sigma 20mm ART a few months ago abd an very happy with it and will get the ...
  • Created discussion thread "Lightroom Not Responding" message
    I do most of my Lightroom work on my desktop system in my office but I also have it on my laptop which is mainly used when I travel for more than a few days or if I want to tether my Canon 5DR. So ...
  • Maybe I should have been clearer, I just find for me the fully Auto mode (on a Canon it is the setting with the green square with an A in it) very limiting but I think it's fine that it's there ...
  • I have used Nations Photo Lab for 10 years or so and overall been happy. At this stage I print more for myself than clients but I routinely do 11x14 through 20x 24 inch prints in both BW and ...
  • I mainly shoot weddings now for just friends and family as I am out of the for hire business but I agree here. I shoot with 2 bodies; a 7DMkII with an 24-70 f2.8 and a 70-200mm f2.8. The other ...
  • For me it really depends on where I am going on vacation. I retired from studio shooting a few years ago but still make money on stock sales. My wife has an interesting job with a fair amount of ...
  • I really think it all depends on the type of work you do or at least for me it does. One day I'm shooting in the studio with strobes, another day it's portraits on location and another it's some ...
  • Replied in Lightning!
    Fantastic shots! You seem to have timed them just right and you had great composition. Shots like this further contradict those who say the Canon M system is an under-performer and also show you ...
  • Well if the cost is not an issue then why not? I got it on the cheap as I had a credit from a return at Amazon so I felt like I got a good deal. As others have mentioned it is a nice focal length ...
  • Yes, it was a great opportunity to get shots of spoonbills and egrets though! I hiked back to the carpark on the lower trail and while I didn't see too many birds on that trail I did run across 3 ...
  • Replied in vignetting
    No, I did that in post. Might be a bit much, but that's the beauty of non destructive editing! ;-)
  • I just picked up a used one last week and am pretty happy. For several years I had the Canon 100mm f2.8 in the original version. I mostly used it for flowers or small architectural details on my ...
  • I got this lens about 3 years ago. I had been using the original version of the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 but had to do several internationals trips where the size and weight of that lens were a ...
  • Created discussion thread Meanwhile down at the pond...
    I went down to Smith Oaks Rookery at High Island, Texas just east of Galveston on Sunday. Got a lot of bird shots but also a few of the refuge's alligators.  I've been enjoying my new Tamron ...
  • Replied in 1 DX ii
    If you want a good deal consider Canonpricewatch.com. The sellers are officially recognized Canon dealers but can not advertise a lower price or Canon will fuss so they sell it at the lower ...
  • Overall I find Tony does pretty good reviews but he whines whenever a new camera doesn't have some feature he wants. He loved the 5Ds and 5DsR in his review but gave the camera low marks for video ...
  • If you have several currently serviced Canon pieces of gear you might consider joining Canon Professional Service or CSP. They have several levels of membership at different prices and with each ...
  • Not sure if you mean the current ART lens line retooled with native M mounts or a new line of lenses designed for the APS-C sensor. Either way it isn't going to happen as the Canon M market is too ...
