    2 More Weeks

    SAT's are in less than 2 weeks and I thought I'd do a self-portrait to remember my epic debacle to studying when I (hopefully) get into NYU. Math is going to kill me. Wish me luck guys!

    post processing help

    Sure, why not. I used a plugin from Nik Software called Color Efex which has all these options to enhance color in an image. Respectively, Silver Efex Pro is the plugin which allows to convert to and enhances shade or "black and white" of an image. For this image, I used the "Neutral Density...

    I'll agree with you about the aperature range but the fact that Canon also offers the f/1.4 and f/1.8 at a $300 difference is reasonable because at least all Canon cameras have built in AF motors. With Nikon you spend more money because you're forced to buy the f/1.4 whereas with Canon I could...

    If you read my post thoroughly, you would have noticed that I compared the f/1.8 and f/1.4. I would have bought the f/1.8 for $100 if it had an AF motor but it didn't so I had to pay $300 more for the f/1.4.

    That's not a valid argument. Who would spend $2500+ on an FF camera and not utilize it to it's full potential? I bought a 5D Mark II and the last thing I would want to buy for it is a lens made for APS-C. That's why the L series lenses are there. Not to mention the fact that only 13-18ish...

    The problem with AF-S lenses is that they cost much, much more than those that are not AF-S. When I had my D60, I could have paid $100 for the 50mm f/1.8 but then it wouldn't auto-focus. So of course I had to pay $300 more for the f/1.4. To me f/1.8 and f/1.4 didn't mean a lot to me so I wasn't...

    Hey guys, I'm requesting that my critique be a little different from the ones that are usually given here. Of course the traditional technical tips are welcome but I need to know something. Is there an obvious "mood" or "story" that you can infer from the two pictures. Much thanks.

    Use the 24-85 @ f/2.8 and put it as ISO 1600 but no more than 3200. Also, if you have a hand warmer, you might want to wrap that around your lens to prevent moisture/dew forming.

    No don't call in sick if all else fails, unless you're actually suffering from something life-threatening. It would be morally wrong. Really wrong.

    What custom settings for 5D Mark II?

    Picture styles is useful if you're thinking about converting to black and white later on with the monochrome option. Putting the picture in monochrome gives you an idea if a picture will look good or not before post-processing.
