  • Hi Derrel, I haven't seen you post for quite a while, hope all is with you?

    Good morning, I am new to this site and after reading your post wanted to ask your opinion on shooting weddings. I have been throwing the idea around but feel unsure whether to do it or not. Mostly I have taken nature photos and family photos.
    Hi Derrel, I was wondering if you know anything about shooting full length live video streams and lighting needed. You gve me some great pointers a while back about photographing clothing using flashes and soft boxes (which turned out fantastic).

    Well, get some light, diffused but bright. 2x 250 Watt quartz ought to be enough.

    Nikon 43-86mm f/3.5 F. The original Nikon 43-86mm is the worst lens Nikon has ever made. It's worse than the worst, because not only is it terrible by itself, it was so awful that it has tainted the reputation of all other zoom lenses to this day. I just read this from google

    The first model was horrible. JC Debover likes the second generation model he owns.
    Hi Derrel. I’m brand new on here. I like the idea of a community. You’re clearly top of the pops, accomplished, talented and are very familiar with the landscape. Do you have any advice on how to make the most of this. I’d be very grateful.
    This is me..

    I think it really helps to post and reply and give your opinion no matter what your level of experience might be. Showing up counts a lot. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner intermediate or advanced… Just show up and weigh in … Seriously… Within a week and a half or two at most and you will be a regular. Welcome, and best of luck to you in all things. Derrel.
    Hi Derrel. I'm a new member.. I see your photos.. they're absolutely amazing. I need help please. I have an app on my phone that snaps all pictures when the phone is unlocked. Recently I came across 2 unlock photos but honestly they don't make sense and I can't seem to make out the images captured as they're blurry.. Is it possible to send the 2 images for a professional opinion from a great photographer. Thanks

    I wish I could help you, but I'm afraid I can't.
    Hi Darrel, I met you at McDonald's yesterday. Just wanted to say thanks for your info, advice and words of encouragement. I'm looking forward to my next step in digital photography with Lightroom, as you suggested. If I have questions, I know who to turn to. Gary
    Hi Darrel, I am new to both this forum and Lensbaby having recently bought a Sweet 35. I am considering a Velvet 56 and saw on one of your posts that you said not to buy the Canon EF fit but get a Nikon F mount and use an adaptor; what is the reason for this? Hope you do not mind me asking. Best wishes, Andrew-Bede Allsop

    The lens has no internal f-stops or connection with the camera, so it makes much more sense to buy it in F mount and then adapt it to Canon EF mount it will work on both cameras that way otherwise it won't focus to infinity

    Hey Derek thanks for the help in my post about the d7000 upgrade. You have me strongly considering a D800/D800E. Do you thing the aa filter makes a big enough difference to look for a D800e? I’m really interested in being able to crop/print large. Thanks!
    Hey, Thanks for the messages. I'll try to offer as much help in Open Forum as I can give you.

    Hello,
    I just joined this forum today in hopes that it will guide me through my photography journey. I'm still trying to figure out how to navigate it. Thank you for any help you can give me.
