I have been photographed by Greg Heisler and would gladly do it again. But my first choice today would be Platon.

Am I limited in answering the question to photographers other than myself?

On challenge My Best Photo of the Week (1 comment in total)

An honor to have come in 62nd. Actually, I came in second to one image of a person which placed ahead of me and one in behind of me. We were 1,2,3 with images of actual people.

What does can't quite match resolving power mean in real terms? Not understanding this anti-alias filter, either. I own two 5D Mark III. Have had focusing issues with both. This is a primary concern of mine. Not sure wi-fi is state of the art either.

avicenanw: Shame to have this turned into a political forum. This piece can be found elsewhere if anyone cares to read about it. DPR is not the place for it. What have this got to do with reviewing cameras and photography?

All art is political and photo j is as much of the scene as anything you shoot.

Just to offer a different view, leaving aside my and Jon Stewart's abject hatred for the person, these images show a lot going on in a room with no windows. People stand close by to one another, with dry looks painted on their faces. And, Cheney, who brought this attack on and Condy, who could have stopped it, and that CIA jerk who didn't see it coming, all look uncomfortable. Some of the images look cooked. I think only those who haven't been in situation rooms like this would think it was business as usual. The state of calm posited by the writer gives theses players more credit than they deserve.

Still cannot use the flashes with a sekonic light meter. I am so upset about this. Other than that, I have the 600s and the transmitter. Just fabulous.

In reply to:

stawarz: So will this set a precedent whereby if an animal takes a picture of itself the photographer who's equipment took the image no longer assumes copyright? Now what happens to all the other wildlife pictures whereby they were triggered by the animal tripping a remote release and not by the photographer, have they in fact taken a selfie?

No analagous. The photographer conceived the idea.

Very sad. Bad enough the stories don't spread the news anymore. Now no pictures, either. Soon, no comics. I know why. Went to photography school as a non-trad. Kids didn't read or write. Couldn't tell a story in words or pictures. Never saw one with a paper. They didn't know history or respect it. Just me, me, me. So, why have photojournalists if no stories can be told and if there were, no people would read or understand them.

Enjoy Connect a lot. Think it informs about an area of photography's art and craft handily. Need to know about apps and gadgets for my phone and Ipad.

First, you have to find a person who looks like this who wants to be photographed. Strong. High ISO a challenge won by the shooter, as was the use of the 24 which didn't distort. High praise for this image and its maker.
