  • I would not even open my camera bag for that price Dave. Plain moronic would be more like it, not in touch with the real world that's for damn sure.
  • Dave, Make sure you put in paragraphs in it, not all run on. When you do that you will notice that you commence each sentence with "I", try to think up something else so it's not just about you. eg: ======================================= Dear XX…
  • Just be yourself, don't embellish, inflate, fabricate any crap mate. Tell it like it is, much better to be upfront with what you can/cannot do than babble some bullshit, then find you cannot deliver. Nothing more damaging than word of mouth by event…
  • Dave, I have to suggest you do a quick search and see if you can find one of those overseas places which specialise in removal editing, most have a 'free' 1-2 pic test, give that a go and if look good, send/pay for any remainders. I'd say maybe $5…
    in Photoshop Question Comment by Trev May 7
  • Dave, Those settings I spoke about, 'Camera Profiles' are in a LR panel you can choose from, under Camera Calibration. See pic. You won't have all of these, I imported extra profile to play with.
  • Dave, You are welcome. Trust me, I would not say it was a good job if not, I don't see hot spots on glass, (brilliant), nor in glasses on faces (teeny tiny on rim on one, but that's too stupid to even worry about for the type of shot it is, a 'grab…
  • Dave, Problem with LR, on a 'flash' setting, I don't think so, unless the version of your LR is causing it, (I still use LR4.4, have not updated it since I do 99% of editing in Photoshop). Why it appears to be warm, is because it's designed to do …
  • Dave, Nothing wrong with those shots at all, damn good job in my opinion. If those were mine, I would be more than happy with results. Trev
  • Dave, if you take them in RAW format, they will still display as colour, I am pretty sure they only show up BW if in jpeg. 'I think'.
  • Dave, Something similar to you. Main Folder (My Pictures) Sub-Folders: Weddings Family School Class Photos Sports Team Photos Corporate Real Estate Then Sub-Folders for each individual. eg: Weddings: Mary Smith_Billy-Bob Jones SAT 13th June …
  • ebay: CHARGER Amazon: CHARGER Universal Model: UNI CHARGER ebay #2: CHARGER Australian Site, but read the reviews: AUSSIE CHARGER Cheers, Trev
  • Lou, I forgot to add what I did, since I was unable to get to computer for a few days due to bloody surgery on my foot. Anyhow, I dropped the exposure in raw by -1.54 stops, changed WB, took off all contrast/sharpening; did not use the Highlight …
  • Lou, Received the Raw, edited version attached. (click image to view larger and clearer in browser) Cheers.
  • Dave, Glad you had a good experience with them. Cheers
  • Lou, First, I set up the camera body in manual to how I want background more or less. Then I turn on Flash, test shoot it on anything before things get under way, and crank up the FEC, still no luck, I immediately crank up the Camera Body's Expos…
  • Lou, You are using Nikon's, so immediately I would go to 1/250th, the ISO seems pretty high? 1600 I would have chosen, then because you are shooting against backlight, the Flash in iTTL would have said, enough, no more light is needed. Now here i…
  • Dave, Thanks, looks fine and for $129US is a good price generally. Cheers, Trev
  • Dave, So you've chosen an authorised Canon service dealer, do you know what they are going to check and give an fixed (normal service without actual repair) price and details of such service? Checking Lens also? Trev
  • Skip, Thanks for my store recommendation you mentioned for Dave, but that's in Australia, I reckon he will have a bloody long wait getting it there and back.
  • Dave, You need to be sure you will get a fully comprehensive check, Sensor, Shutter, Mirror and a myriad of other things. I own Nikon and I send my stuff to a dedicated Authorised Nikon Repairer, and they do a 30-point check on my bodies. Also,…
  • Sathler, Just get Dr Google to search for reviews, all of which seem to have this lens rated so fast at auto focus/lock and hold that each reviewer is amazed, from close to distant in blink of an eye apparently. (I do not own one, on the 'wish li…
  • Thanks Jay, WB advice:
  • Thanks for update Michael. At least you had a play to see what will/won't work for you. You do need to try these things for yourself, even it only to get a better understanding of your own equipment which you now have a grasp on the boundaries i…
  • No problem Scott. My mate has Canon, and even though we've compared the exact settings, same lens (24-70), the same focus point, and same zoom, his always seems to be under-exposed in ETTL. His compensation is usually at least +1 above my Nikons…
  • Scott, Welcome! Any samples? Probably I would go to manual mode on flash head. Also, what mode are you using on camera. Manual on that is almost a given and is my mantra. Get your ambient light figured out first until happy, then you worry abo…
