Ferguson's recent activity

  • I replaced my first-VR 70-200 with a VRII (as opposed to the one just released). I found it MUCH sharper, even in the center, at 200mm, wide open.  I shoot sports, so "wide open" is pretty much all ...
  • And just to be clear the de-installation of lightroom will not remove any catalog information. If your catalog was in the default location, a new installation should just find the existing catalog, ...
  • Smugmug went through a huge redesign in 2013, and gave people 2 years to switch over to it.  To my knowledge Zenfolio has been doing more of an incremental evolution. During the redesign, they were ...
  • That may be all the organizers require, but it is almost certain that legally you will need a business license as well.  Will anyone check is another question of course, but there are very few ...
  • Honestly I'd think about keeping the 70-200, forgoing the 300 for now, and getting the D500. With sale prices now (in fact they had some with a free Nikon grip still at about $1800, which is ...
  • Basketball gyms can be a real challange even with good gear. Custom white balances generally do not help due to (a) cycling lights changing from pinkish to greenish, (b) reflections off colored ...
  • You might want to find a pro photographer already set up in those areas, and offer them a processing fee or similar to run this through their business and let you just be paid for services ...
  • My guess based on talking to people is the D600, but... really... If you HAVE all these cameras why not just go shoot in similar light and compare yourself, using your own post processing and your ...
  • Wait for the next major update.  AFTER the update I bet the policy goes back to default. Microsoft is either explictly resetting a lot of these, or just bad at coding.
  • And even if they were doing it knowingly, there is zero for you to "win" here by giving any hint of such.  They are your employer.  Swallow your anger, and be very nice and respectful, not just ...
  • I had not done my homework, I did not realize it was a DX lens, in fact had no clue Sigma was making Art lenses for DX only.  Thanks, and sorry for the diversion.
  • First, I replaced my version 1 70-200 with a new (now old) one, and was delighted. The improved sharpness at 200 was really significant. But I don't see 50-100 as only of limited utility on a full ...
  • I have used none of them, but a friend bought two of the Art wide angles (I do not recall exactly which ones) and shot a bit of hoops with them late least year, and just raved about them.  I think ...
  • You're almost wide open, go ahead and open it up to 2.8, anything to help the backgrounds.  Cropping tight helps too (though you did that on many).  Really nice timing on several in here (e.g. 12) ...
  • I would agree, focus, and I think it is actually front focus a bit, as while the chest is sharp that seems to be the back of the DOF range. I would not do anything for one shot, but it is worth ...
  • If I read your account correctly, I think you are going above and beyond to make it right. I also think (and it would take seeing the actual sites' postings both FB and GP to really know) that the ...
  • +1. I think you'll find, if you seek general guidance about journalism, is that your editing cannot change the viewers reaction to the scene.  For example, if it was overcast and you make it nice ...
  • Is your issue that you are keeping the non-keepers as well?   I know someone who says he keeps ever image he ever took, just in case.  That can be incredibly huge.   Or even something like group ...
  • I'm with most of the others.  Lightroom is slow, but it's faster than all the hoops you are jumping through, plus it may be able to help with loading (publishing) into the galleries for clients.
  • I was the one that said tripods were not useful below 800, but that was kind of arbitrary. They are quite useful as you get longer and longer.  I picked 800 because I have a 400 and with a 1.4x I ...
