    Zone System - Contemporary Usage

    Yes, I said this, only because I saw that the post had not gotten the results I was after. I wonder now what might have come of this statement had I said "I did wonder if my original post might spawn a diatribe ..." And now I am a villain and accused of lying. This is my last post at this...

    Zone System - Contemporary Usage

    I did not post this thread expecting to spawn a diatribe. You asked what I expected and I said: I'll go with constructive discussion and disagreement any day. 'nuff said.

    Zone System - Contemporary Usage

    I am new to this forum and have to ask: What would you have the forum do for you, provide a stage for thumping your chest or be a place for sharing thoughts and resources.

    Zone System - Contemporary Usage

    This was no Thunderdome. I had thought about including Qs about histograms, HDR, metering, etc., but did not want to overload things. I did include the following: I figure that the type of photog that still uses the zone falls into the category of photo artist or photo specialty, not...

    Zone System - Contemporary Usage

    I did expect that my original post might spawn a diatribe on whether the zone system still applies at all. Yep. My original post did not specifically ask if it was still valid with digital: I've been watching for someone to even mention the use of histograms and that came only as a passing...

    Motorized Pan Tilt Product Suggestions

    I searched the site and found no hits on this topic, so ... There might not be many members here who have had experience with these devices, but maybe a couple who can suggest good products. What I am looking for is a motorized pan/tilt that can be controlled via computer connection, either...

    Zone System - Contemporary Usage

    A bit of a survey here ... How many members still employ the Zone System in their photography? Are you professional? Ameteur? Artist? Landscape? Portraiture? Do you use the Tiffen contrast lenses that replace the original Kodak Wratten #90? Do you use the Zone System with digital cameras...

    Would this work? (Zone system on a DLSR & in the field)

    h This quote comes from a dated post (2011) and I agree with the member who replied to a post that stated that the Zone System does not apply to dSLR photography. First, I'm new to this Forum, so it shouldn't be surprising that I do searches to see if a topic has already been explored. I...

    Best Sources for Used Photographic Equipment

    The post was for opinions about sources for used gear and I had no intentions about extolling the Adorama problem. But after talking with them this morning and getting tossed around from verification to customer service and back again, could not hold back my frustrations.

    Best Sources for Used Photographic Equipment

    Excuse me. I said that Paypal told me that Adorama has to send them notice that the pending charges are released. Further, Adorama has at least acknowledged this much. They told me that this would definitely be done by yesterday. Thursday has come and gone and once more, I get the...

    Best Sources for Used Photographic Equipment

    I have already talked to PayPal and they sent me back to Adorama to get them to provide information about the cancellation and release of the "Pending" on their corporate letterhead. They indicated solidly that Adorama had to release the money back to me. They could do nothing. Should I be...

    Best Sources for Used Photographic Equipment

    No, the issue is with Adorama. PayPal must wait for verification from them to release the "Pending" order. And Adorama not only cancelled my order making me out to be fraudulent, but is sitting on releasing the "Pending" order.

    Best Sources for Used Photographic Equipment

    Yesterday, I received my first used gear, a Canon battery grip BG-E6, from KEH. They said it was in Excellent condition and it came in like new, minus the instruction sheet and anything else that might have originally been in the box at a good price. I am happy with this. I ordered some...

    And no, I didn't mean to imply that photography could be made to look like painting, as gicle' prints are often used to achieve.

    Dean, No, that's not quite what I was alluding to in terms of "painterly works." But then when it comes to "painterly works" there are many different schools of thought, many followings, portraiture being only one of this cosmos of known categories. Because of the wide diversity, I don't...
