    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    Damn, you guys are certainly making me lean towards the Fuji. My biggest concern right now is simply its low-light ability, and how the kit lens will perform for both portraits and landscapes. Since the combo would really be stretching my budget, that's what I'd have to use for the whole trip...

    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    I'm currently using LR. We have C1 at the work studio, but my god do I hate that program. I'm hoping that I can just continue using LR for the time being. Long-term, I can budget for better software, but my budget for this gear is fixed and will need to be all-in. Everything else is going into...

    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    For the A6000, I'm considering the following combo: A6000 + Sony 50mm f/1.8 = $700 + Sigma 19mm f/2.8 ($200) Puts me at $900 for a portrait lens, and dedicated UWA.

    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    I think you mean to say you threw out the XT-1? Not the XT-10? Both look like fantastic cameras. I'm intrigued by the XT-10's price point (with lens included, if it's decent). As much as I can drool over the XT-1, it is simply out of budget by too large of a margin :/ Currently, I'm leaning...

    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    Hmm, very interesting. I'm reading up on it, but any idea how it performs as far as dynamic range goes? I'm guessing it isn't weather sealed. I had also looked at the OMD E5 and OMD E5II, but both have atrocious battery life from what I hear (100 shots).

    Mirrorless for backpacking the PCT? Sony A6000?

    Ok folks. Some of you may know that my 6D just died thanks to a hug from a friendly wave while at the beach. Now I'm getting an insurance payoff for the broken body/lens, and I'm in a bit of a spot. You see, in April I'm hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, and photographing all 2,665 miles of it...

    Goodnight, sweet prince.

    Right now, I have a SquareTrade plan for all of my L lenses, and have always had them for my bodies. They're transferrable if folks buy your lenses, and so far their customer service has been great. They do have a 5 day guarantee from when they get the item to when you have a new one or a...

    Goodnight, sweet prince.

    Update: Not even 30 minutes after shipping the packages, I've already got the Amazon gift card for the lens ($750) via email. Pretty great service on SquareTrade's part. The camera (being over $1000) will require a few extra days.

    Goodnight, sweet prince.

    Just a reminder to everyone that **** happens, and perhaps that insurance is a good idea when it comes to higher-end gear. I've photographed some pretty sketchy spots along the coast, and my 6D has gotten its fair share of sea-spray and drizzles. It has always held up well. Yesterday, a near 15...

    City Surfer

    Taken way back in February, but never edited for some reason. This guy was surfing just under the Golden Gate Bridge, around Fort Point. None of my landscapes panned out that day (Carl the fog didn't show in time), but I'm reasonably happy with this one in hindsight :)

    Noah's Arc

    It's always great to check in and see folks enjoyed a photo :) Thanks for all the feedback! Thanks! Nope, it's a single exposure. I've gotten handy at shooting portraits with my wide-angle while using a Lee graduated filter :) Haha, it was a snag unfortunately. In his words "the whales are...

    Noah's Arc

    Sometimes, I wander. I wander down ravines. I wander to the sea. I wander onto cliffs. I wander, in search of photos. Last week, I found one. I had already shot a landscape which I thought would be decent, so I packed up the tripod and walked up the coast. Turning off abandoned railroad...

    Rollin'

    The last one is the best of the bunch compositionally. I've done some rolling shots and they are a blast. I'd maybe suggest hanging out a bit lower if you can to get a different perspective. Also, the sunbursty-orange effect is just way overplayed, IMO. Have you tried shooting at slower speeds...

    Thanks for the feedback everyone :) I'm not sure I have too much of an issue with the first, though I could see how some creative minds might think it's...what it isn't. Anyways, here's a different shot of the same style. Thoughts?

    The Photo You Didn't Intend to Capture!

    I was in South Korea on a research assignment for a month. It was my last night, and I decided I'd go out for one last day of shooting. I spent all day walking the streets, taking the subway to as many cities as I could, and eventually I ended up on the coastal metropolis of Haeundae. This place...

    Wedding photographers, how many photos do you actually use from the reception?

    Yep, I hear you. IMO wedding photography is hard, no doubts about it. But it doesn't have to be impossible. Folks who advertise 500+ images are just setting themselves up for failure. Not only does that make it more stressful, but there is no way that those people aren't making a quality vs...

    Saskia | Beach | Lifestyle

    Only recently got around to editing some shots from a quick coastal shoot I had last weekend. The model, Saskia, hadn't done a shoot before, but was quite the trooper between the wind and cold. I wanted to go for something a bit more lifestyle than I normally do. 1. Saskia by Austin Greene, on...

    Wedding photographers, how many photos do you actually use from the reception?

    To give you an idea, all my clients are on contract for 36 images per wedding. Usually a bit more if they go into the 6+ hours of coverage range. Do they normally get more? Sure. The point is, you should never be concerned with the volume of shots you're turning over. Think about quality, and...

    Got some portraits and a column published

    Beating a dead horse here, but well done! You picked some great examples shots to use in the article. The first one in particular is killer :)
