    1. i modified the dx code on a role of velvia 100 to shoot at 200. then my intended use for the role did not happen and it's almost all flash photography out of an af600, much of it up close. should i actually have the lab push +1. if so, do i need to tell them that or does the dx code tell the...

    is 500px done with web hosting? what wp plugins fill the gap?

    there used to be a level called pro+ that provided web hosting and super easy to use backend (you just needed the domain name). is that gone? there's of course no one to call at 500px to ask and email support is doing who knows what. if that is gone, wordpress is obviously the answer. i'm...

    nikon fa meter is one stop different

    hi. my nikon fa meter thinks i should overexpose shots by one stop compared to a handheld meter and my canon rc 35. what’s up with that? is the meter broken? is there anything i can do about that? google says you shouldn’t set exposure compensation when using the matrix metering. thanks
