  • Funny, you are so right about the lean. I did not even notice that before, which is why its is great to get feedback. I will try some on the other side of the rose fence as well. I guess the lens challenge was pretty simple, i just love the bokeh fr…
  • @Trev and @Jerry,Not a real crab just a rusted old one outside the garden. I guess it was more of a post about some oldie lenses and how it was a nice walk down memory lane while using it. Nothing wrong with today's digital, but somedays I miss the …
  • Shot these with my 400 2.8 lens @ about 5.6 to 7.1
  • dbruno Dave,I almost always shoot on raw, cause I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to images. With RAW, I can always create an import preset in Lightroom. Usually that preset ( depending on what subject/event you are shooting) will be about …
  • Thanks all,dbrunogroomsphoto @ TrevI tried to keep the shutter speed at 2,000 to 2,500 around 7.1 by adjusting my ISO ( which usually stayed @ 160.I shoot raw plus Large fine JPEG. The raws were obviously dull in color so I added a preset t…
  • Hello Thiago,I'll chime in. I was planning on buying a black rapid for my d4 and probably would have, however many reviews stated that when the smaller lens is  attached, its fine but the 70-200 lens seems to swing like a pendulum quite a bit when y…
  • I love Auto ISO for sports as well. Many times you will have the action coming from the east and then the ball transfers ownership and they are off again to the west. I'd rather make my life easier and shoot with auto for those games. And for the ga…
    in Auto ISO ? Comment by julieo August 2015
  • Yes, you can price the amount you would like your profit to become. Most times though I had wished that i just created only a set download fee..... no prints, more profit that way and they get instant downloads after payment. I still use smugmug as …
  • Dave,Smugmug works well especially if you do not have an opportunity to meet with those who were photographed at a later date. There is a yearly fee for smugmug and the charge varies according to what services you will be needing. You can set the pr…
  • Thanks Stephen,Thats what i was afraid of and echoes what McNally said. The school will just point my way and wash their hands. I bill them in thirds, after I finish up each sporting/event season. I gave them a basic contract (same as last year) whi…
  • Thanks Dave,I thought I would be fine with the school having the blanket release on file too but I had this nagging feeling in the back of my mind so I asked the presenter at yesterdays seminar. He ask if I was on schools staff or independent, and I…
  • Thank you, @Trev I am going to try that. Not very polished at Photoshop, but I'll give it a go.
  • @Skipperlange A few times I held the phone in front when the blasts from the fireworks seemed to be going off as singles. My thought was that I could hold the shutter open after the first firework then place phone in front till the next mortar roun…
  • Could possibly be your focus lock- on tracking, do you recall what you have it set to?
  • Silly question, but are you using continous auto focus and multi image shooting for the action shots as opposed to single exposure/single focusfor stills? Also, using back button focusing is very helpful. When having focus issues, a good friend told…
  • @jcgoodson and @Nikonguy Certainly the faster the sport the bigger the problem with stadium lights as Nikonguy states. That said, id rather have a shaper image I can fix post than a blurry image with more pleasing color shift.. In Baseball you can g…
  • Justin,My main photography is sports photography, you are experiencing the recycling of the stadium lights. Human eye can not se the difference, but the camera will. Just be sure you are shooting in RAW and fix in post production. If you blast off a…
  • I love my Squarespace! I use the squarespace as my portfolio but still use smugmug for the ability that people to order prints or pay for downloads. I don't find many people are even ordering prints anymore( folks just LOVE Screenshots), but I need …
  • After 2 weeks of the A7ii, I am really loving it! I mainly use the 55 1.8 but want to find a vintage street lens or just buy the 24-70 4.0. This camera allows me to use an old Zeiss 85 1.4 with the fotodiox adapter. The peaking color helps with any …
  • I agree, this is way over the top! I also agree that this was staged. If you look at the uncut video at 0:15 you can see that 3/4 of the guests are sitting alone and looking very uncomfortable. Weird.
  • I too received my first mirrorless..Sony A7ii . The next day I brought it along to my daughter's college graduation. Did Not purchase a flash at the time so I was amazed at the low light capabilities. I read up and bought 3 batteries as they do drai…
