    Good night everybody! The SB-700 softened by a white sheet up and right from the camera, reflective white board to fill the shadows on the other side and a sweet gift from the girlfriend :mrgreen: Any comments, tips or C&C would be much appreciated.

    Ever heard of Civita'di Bognaregio in Italy?

    It's a magical place just north of Rome, somewhere in the middle of the route to Florence. Close to Orvieto, another amazing place to visit if you're ever around there. Hope you like it! The reduction kinda hurted it a little bit, but I was thinking maybe printing it and put it in a small...

    First Timelapses

    Hello there! A while ago I gave a brief attempt at timelapses and I kinda liked the results. This is nothing like those amazing HD Timelapse videos you see out there, but I was trying to learn the basics. Maybe in the future I'll come back with something better. :mrgreen: I see a lot of room...

    New Grandparents and their tresure [C/C]

    Hello there! They both thought I was just only taking pics of the baby and fooling around, so they acted natural and weren't posing at all. Of course this also means they weren't paying attention to me or what was best for the picture... but you can't have it both ways :lol: C&C always...

    Hello there! I've been meaning to do a session with this little fellow since he was born, 12 days ago, and last Saturday's morning there was some really nice light coming in from the window, so I grabbed the camera and embarked in what's my first 'photo session' ever, but besides that I'd...

    What am I missing for landscape photography?

    Hello everybody! I'm planning on taking 2 weeks off to go to the very south of Patagonia, and give a real try to landscape photography. The region is pretty much all about very long hikes at the feet of the Andes, encountering glaciers, lakes and pretty cool mountains like this one: File:Cerro...

    Hello there! Went for a drive to a place I used to go as a kid, but the place was packed with cars so I shoot some pictures instead. The whole area was inundated for some heavy raining we've had for the last couple of weeks, but it looked pretty cool. Haven't got time to review them in detail...

    My one day old nephew :)

    Hello everybody! New member in the family, first nephew, and it seems he'll be seeing a lot the front of my 50mm lens, 'cause I just can't get tired of clicking the d*mn button :mrgreen: Not too experienced in photographing people, least in photographing newborns in bad lightning situations...

    Do I want to upgrade the firmware of my camera? (Nikon D7000)

    I mean, besides all the advantages... Has anyone read the actual agreement and could tell me what I'm signing here? What's it basically talking about? I know it sounds lazy, but hate to loose time reading legal stuff! #edit: I'm basically afraid about, I don't know... breaking the camera or...

    Reverse and Step Down/Up Rings setup -- Help appreciated

    Hello everybody! After some reading on the subject, I've decided to try a reverse ring as an attempt to shoot macro on a budget. Kinda like the idea of the 6:1 magnification I could get with my current lenses. The only problem I see with this, is that I'd also need to get some step down/up...
