  • Thanks, Trev!  I now realize my custom preset is set for Process 2010.  Upon imorting to LR5 it was applying it to all my images, resulting in 'no sliders'.  Not until I reset to original NEF did I get them back.  I agree, Process 2010 is a truer …
  • Yikes!  I think I found my glitch just after posting and 2 days of scratching my head.    LR5 imported my presets from LR3.  When I use my main custom preset/workflow it defaults back to the LR 3 module.  If I reset my RAW file, bingo.  All slider…
  • Glad this is archived!  I came back for the reference on how to save and load actions/work-spaces!  Once again, these instructions are flawless! Thanks!
  • Thank you everyone. I'm still practicing. ErinC, I'd love to compare notes!! I sent you a message. I look forward to connecting.
  • Great feed back! Thanks everyone. I'll try BBF again with these tips in mind.
  • I think I really just need more practice, and remembering to switch to AF-C. I was told the BBF is great for when the bride is coming down the isle.
  • Thanks for this Trev. I tried it out today and it's a gem! It trumps the preview rendering in LR. I found it to be instant as well. I flagged all my duds and then deleted them all at once. Renamed my files and now off and running. I haven't …
  • OH, and a shout out to Trev for sending me the 8x12 test print file for checking calibration. NO more guessing!! Thanks Trev!!
  • Hi Mike, Sorry, haven't been around the forum to see your post. Yes, finally I figured that UPDATE click and all seems good. I was a bit paranoid b/c my monitor is/was having issues. Manual buttons not working or getting frozen. Monitor not po…
  • Hi, Thanks for asking. Trev solved the issue for me in a phone chat. I forgot to put the answer in here, but although Trev has not used the Spyder he talked me through all the options on each screen that I saw and finally I had seen an option to …
  • Mike, the fan is unnoticeable. VERY quiet. Trev, they are blue. They face backwards on the top. It's annoying but the only thing so far that I'm not crazy about. Mike, your profile picture is lovely!! What a cutie.
  • Mike, there are some in the back and 2 on the top front. Hope this helps.
  • PDH7981, how did it go? I now have a new computer as of Fri. I didn't muck around. I was up w/ all my Workspaces/Actions/ToolPresets PLUS my Plug-Ins following these steps "transferring" using Trev's method in this thread. This is now the 3rd …
  • Great info!! And so timely. I just did this update on my new computer tonight. Perfect!! Worked as lined out and I now have the latest Camera RAW!! Look out! New computer and up to date software. Wooo!
  • Hi Mike, I have to say I'm very happy w/ it so far. A success for sure!! HP always has a bunch of junk pre installed. I will be having a computer friend working on it further tomorrow to clean it up. Some of this stuff is over my head. I'll k…
  • oh, Envy Vision is what I had.
  • Hi Mike! I just received this EXACT system today!!! I will be firing it up tomorrow and loading all my software. I'm not a very techy person. However, I am excited to see this machine run. It's an upgrade from the Envy that was nothing but he…
  • Yes, works as advertised, perfectly including the "plug-ins" Workspace, files, actions...all came back like before it crashed. Thanks, Trev, for your attentiveness.
  • Trev, you are amazing at explaining the filing system. I have crashed my NEW computer 3 times in less that a year and your tips have saved me from going off the deep end. Your system is tried and true on my end w/ much success. For sure it's ove…
  • Well, I asked around and got many answers. Not sure what best suits my needs. (small home studio) boom arm. strobe w/ barn doors, w/ a black foam core gobos?? Polly board Strobe w/ grid. Strip w/ grid. Wondering what ppl here have to sa…
  • Great! For some reason I thought it would be harder. However, line of sight is an issue. The speed-light wouldn't always trigger! bummer! I guess pocket wizards are the way to go
  • Thanks, Lou!! I tried looking for the the DVD "one light" and was coming up w/ results of retired! Bummer. That would be right up my alley. Just today someone asked me about a group family shot of 13 and I was wondering if this light and my 47''…
  • Well, I went w/ the Einstein and the 47" octabox! I only shot a newborn so far and I'm loving it. Very easy to use!! For now I'm firing w/ the sync chord and still shopping for triggers. I was also thinking of adding the battery pack to take thi…
  • Thanks for the comments and links!! This is making me reconsider!! Good stuff, everyone. I need a little more help digesting the equipment. AB vs Einstein? If I buy and Einstein as my first light setup, can I add AB's as secondary? I'm not sur…
  • Thanks for your responses! Quin, I'm glad to hear you like the AlienBee. I used them 2 years ago in a photography class at the local college. They seemed to be pretty good. I think I will keep the kit as is and change the one umbrella to a soft …
