  • Leaving valuables in a hotel room is one of the worst things you can do. That's what I mentioned in a earlier comment here. Yet, I wouldn't want even the decoy wallet stolen by pickpockets. I would ...
  • It certainly sounds like a good idea. From what I understand though, making photo copies to carry around is illegal . . . I think. I know this is not what is mentioned here, but perhaps a good ...
  • Not being familiar with the country, it was just a suggestion of course. Having things locked up in a lock box and secured within the banks vault would be the ultimate protection of any valuable ...
  • Replied in A few thoughts.
    As far as passports are concerned perhaps arrange with a local bank if you can keep them safe with them in a safe deposit box. Only a thought. Apart from pickpockets, there are those who might ...
  • Commented on challenge Product Shoot: Wine

    Perhaps I did misinterpret part of what you were saying. My apologies. One would certainly hope they wouldn't include a competitors product in the image. That won't go over well with the client.

  • Commented on challenge Product Shoot: Wine

    It's quite simple. Some of the submitted images did not follow the instructions as to showing the product label. Re-read my comment. Nothing is said about a competitor. If your shooting a clients...

  • Me too. Yashika was a well respected name years ago in cameras. To see them back in the ring is awesome!! Ain't nostalgia grand. I can hear some of the young ones out there, "what the hey is a...

  • Commented on challenge Product Shoot: Wine

    I will not DQ any image that doesn't meet with a companies requirement for his/her product image. I will leave that up to you as the submitter. Bare in mind, your client will not go for your image...

  • I concur. Just going on the words of a friend. The last time I did a wedding was years ago, and i used a Minolta SRT-101. It was for a friend who didn't have budget for a photographer, so I did it ...
  • Well, it isn't coming from me. It's a friend of mine who is a very good wedding and portrait photographer saying that coming with a large camera outfit gives the impression of professionalism in ...
  • Replied in Oh, no!!
    Excellent. I would hate to see a perfectly good Tele get compromised. HAHAHA
  • My friend, sorry, you still don't quit understand what I'm trying to say. Clients who have basically NO knowledge about cameras etc, will think that someone with a big honking DSLR is a great ...
  • Replied in Oh, no!!
    Excellent shots, and I do like the first image very much, but that poor Tele. I play a Fender Telecaster myself, and seeing one being subjected to a rain storm made my heart skip a beat. HAHAHA Cheers
  • It's not about the photographer, it's how the client perceives the photographer. Showing up with a smaller camera similar to what a guest might use doesn't, in the minds of some clients, give an ...
  • I have seen a few pros, especially shooting weddings. One wedding photographer in particular that I know personally said that a lot of what he does is about visual. Showing up with larger ...
  • Thanks Guy. Cheers Wayne
  • Replied in Thanks!
    Thank you guys. Most appreciated. Cheers Wayne
  • Created discussion thread Pen-F internal tilt adjustment feature?
    Perhaps I am wrong, but I think I saw something where there is an internal feature in the Pen-F that acts in a way like a tilt lens to keep vertical building walls straight. If this feature, which ...
  • Replied in Why?
    Perhaps you are right in saying that, but what are your reason's? I have the 17mm lens and love it, and I'm sure the 15mm lens that you say is better is also a great lens. I would be interested in ...
  • I suppose the bottom line is that I read into it a bit different. Although he mentioned no external grip, I didn't take that as being negative because he mentioned improved handling, so therefore ...
