  • Swing . . . . . . . . . and miss!
  • More interesting than reading about young people who never question anything and are happy with the amount of Vaseline and new underpants they have to buy as a result.
  • To the OP, this is probably a very nebulous answer, but it just comes from experience and time - and a lot of shooting. It's definitely helpful to look at others' photos and if there's critique ...
  • There's definitely luck involved, but also just a little bit of judicious cropping as well. He knew what he had when he looked at the test print and adjusted accordingly. Not that that's a bad ...
  • If you're on a Mac you don't need cloud services, iTunes, or anything similar to get the photos off the phone; that just makes things overly complicated. Simply, startup Image Capture, which comes ...
  • Another option is to spot meter off of the bird and use AE-L to hold the reading. That's assuming Program or Aperture mode as mentioned. You could also use manual mode to spot meter off of the bird ...
  • It doesn't bounce at all. The strapping allows it to give just a tad to keep it comfy, but otherwise puts the stopper on bounce. I've been using an Optech Pro strap with my D3 and 24-70 and 80-200 ...
  • Thanks, that helps explain a lot and what I expected. You're pushing the exposure 2 stops plus raising the black point a fair amount as well, so there's your answer. Other cameras may be a bit ...
  • One question, was this exactly how the photo looked straight out of the camera, or did you adjust it to be this bright or play with the shadows in post production?
  • Yeah, the Kentmere stuff is really quite good, especially considering the price. Very neutral rendering and pushes well with very little loss in tonality, and no overwrought contrast or excessive ...
  • Created discussion thread Ft. Pitt Bridge
    Taken while on the way to a Pirates game last year, the Ft. Pitt Bridge in Pittsburgh, PA is one of the city's major landmarks. The evening sun was great at the time, so I was fairly lucky to get ...
  • Created discussion thread Barbieri GT1
    This has been sitting on my HD for way too long without being seen. Nikon F4s w/ 80-200 f/2.8 AF-D, Kentmere 400 pushed to 1600 if I recall.
  • Up until that May, still cookin' in my mama's belly. At least I can say I was alive for the first moon landing, though.
  • Replied in Open Water
    Thanks guys! stevo23 - this was scanned on an Epson V500 using the stock holders and OEM software.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Untitled
    Placed 23rd in the challenge.
  • Created discussion thread Open Water
    From a trip a few weeks back. Nikon F4s and Kentmere 400.
  • You're probably thinking of stuff along the lines of what my friend shoots. His work tends to have a very light and airy, almost nostalgic feel to it. It is very much in demand, and he travels all ...
