    Been brainstorming, but nothing coming to mind....

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I am aware of using the correct F stop settings on a small tripod. Still looking for creative ideas on how to display the several watches in one photo. Never had this problem before when shooting other products.....

    Been brainstorming, but nothing coming to mind....

    Thanks for the feedback and prop ideas. Was wanting to do a group shot of several watches together. All watches would need to be viewable in the shot and remain in focus.

    Been brainstorming, but nothing coming to mind....

    Need to get a few shots of five or six watches. Been brainstorming for ideas, and unable to think of anything creative. Don't want to simply line up the watches on a table and take a photo looking down on them. All watches will need to be in focus. Any ideas? Thanks

    Thoughts on this water photo?

    I may try a B&W version of this photo. The photo was totally by accident as I was flying over a lake with the drone and spotted the boat moving across the water. Had very little time to prepare. Boat was moving fast.

    Thoughts on this water photo?

    Prefer not to crop too much more of the photo. What would be the best method to subdue the reflection using LightRoom? Thanks

    Thoughts on this water photo?

    Considering using this photo, but concerned the sun reflection is too bright. If it is, is there anything that can be done as from what is understood, that bright of an area has lost data. Should I leave it as is, or try to reduce the bright reflection? Thanks for any input.

    Faces in focus?

    Thanks for the replies. The body is a D800 Nikon, with a 24-70 F2.8 lens. I was at F3.5. The line of people were roughly 10 feet away from the camera. We were indoors in a conference room setting. Cloudy day, window blinds were shut, with lights on in the room.

    Faces in focus?

    I don't shoot people much at all. Recently did a group photo of six or seven people lined up in a line facing the camera. Everyone was pretty much the same distance from the camera (six feet or so) and the people on the ends were less in focus than those in middle. What settings (Nikon) should...

    Wrong with 70-200mm F2.8

    Went to KEH today to pick up Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II paper weight. While there, I went ahead and bought another Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II. Appears to be in very good shape. Hope I didn't make a mistake. What do folks do with their manual focus Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lenses? Not sure...

    Wrong with 70-200mm F2.8

    Update: Attempted to clean the CPU contacts. Still won't work. Took the lens to KEH Camera and had them check the lens out. They claim the lens does need a new AF motor. KEH does not have the parts necessary to fix since the lens is older VR 1 version. Am I better off sending the lens to Nikon...
