  • To all that responded:  I shot the concert using an incandesent preset based on several shots of my WB mini card and several signs with enough white in them to be useable to check the white ...
  • Anybody else have a way to manually set WB in a gym with mixed lights?  Got to leave in a few minutes. Thanks, Gary
  • Adrian: Thanks for the reply.  I always carry a small color checker on a neck strap.  This helps.  However, tonight I am shooting 1080p video so I need to set the WB early before the concert ...
  • Yep, I know about screwy WB with multiple light sources.  I shot a concert in the kids cafeteria at night and the lighting was horrid!  Any direction you faced had different light temps...made ...
  • John, these are so adorable, so cute, and your shots just show how much fun the pups were having.  Terrific series; you are so very lucky, and talented. Cheers, Gary
  • I love the first shot.  I have seen lots of pics similar to your 2nd and 3rd shots.  The first is different and I love the action, color, and focus.  Just terrific. Cheers, Gary
  • At one time I could adust the white balance on my Pany G7 inside my daughter's gym before one of her choir concerts.  The lighting ranges from at least two types of florescents, and other ...
  • Nice shot!  Glad to see another NW photographer in the MFT talk forum.  By the way, I hope you have watched the incredible sunrises we have been enjoying so far this November. Again,  nice shot. Cheers
  • Very, very nice series of shots.  You have a great camera-lens combo and super skills; congratulations. Cheers, Gary
  • Wow, Trevor!  These are great, especially the BIF shots.  I am ready to toss my G7 and 100-300 but can't because they are still a great combo if the birds are sitting (not BIF). Again, terrrrrrific ...
  • I really dislike LR and have been using PS for years and years.  I have tried all kinds of different photo editors and I like ON1 products.  And today I ordered ON1 Photo Raw. I can't wait to try ...
  • Hi, Gary.  I suspect cold battery problems.  I always keep 3-4 batteries in my pocket for chilly night shoots and have never had a problem with at least three different cameras (two Canons and my ...
  • Wow!!  What wonderful luck!  I love the framing through the fence slats; great for the weasel to pose for you. I have never, ever missed a shot or missed focus when the perfect shot was there to ...
  • Thanks for writing Ian.  The only way I could write to a disk was making the DVD a data disk in CDBurnerXP (newest update).  I then tried watching the video in my usual browser (BreezeBrowser) and ...
  • Created discussion thread Needing a new DVD Burner
    I need an inexpensive, not free (most are full of cr*p) DVD burner that will reliably burn MP4 video files to a DVD. I had a couple, such as CDBurnerXP, but they wouldn't play the DVD MP4 files on ...

  • I put Sibley's on my cell phone, which I take everywhere I go.  It has helped me ID lots of birds.  The cell phone version includes some bird calls and sounds, which is helpful.  I take it ...
  • Just had a chance to review your shots of the Grebes.  Terrific series; great work.  We have lots of grebes in Washington State but like many others, I have yet to see babies hitching a ride.  ...
  • Aghhh!  Wait, we have been led astray lots of times!  Oh, it was so easy in the film days; digital photography keeps my mind busy trying to find out what the heck is going on...which is good at my ...
  • Now, we are getting somewhere, Vernon.  I will look at the yellow in my nozzle checks (both auto and manual) to see if I can detect anything.  Any ideas how to look a bit deeper into the weak cyan ...
