    SUnsets and Filters

    in 2 weeks I am going to a sunset shoot at the ocean shore. Last few times I've done it, I didn't like the result as reflection from the waves messed it all up. I wan to bring those reflections down and I hear CPL's are good for that? I don't want a GND because I can easily do what those...

    Auto ISO - Yay or Nay

    I read people's photoblogs and they always say "use full manual, don't use any auto settings." While this may be true and good in some exteme cases where you can't rely on camera's built in meters, I had a question about Auto ISO. So, I played around with it a little bit and found that for...

    Lens cap replacement

    I am looking to replace the stock lens cap on my 70-200. The problem is that Canon is living in it's own little world and makes terribad lens caps. When the hood is on, there is absolutely no way to take the cap off or put it on because the locks are on the side of the cap instead of being in...
