    My new airport roller for under 20 bucks

    My next lens

    So I decided to go with the 85mm 1.8. Got on ebay and started searching, ended up with an nikon 80-200 2.8 instead. Couldn't resist with a buy it now price of 150 bucks. The posting said that the lens focus was sticky and because of that the af doesn't work but I'm taking a chance that I can...

    My next lens

    Yup. But mostly for the effect using really low, or really high, angles. Not as a "typical" portrait lens for that I'm using the 50

    gym

    the background is hdr, the model is not. I underexposed the model a bit because the main lighting is coming from behind him. If I "properly" exposed his face that would have been another light source in the picture thats not accounted for and would have IMO looked funny. I probably did overdo...

    How to break your "Plateau", tips on getting from great intermediate to "professional"?

    You will always be learning, but when you come to that point that you really understand your camera and lights its time to really STUDY your craft. Go out and find 100 images that you like and save them. when you get to 100 print them out, lay them on the floor and study them. Is there...

    the lonely photographer

    Thanks. When I shot the photographer it was natural light and we tried to get some more light on him with a reflector, but there just wasn't enough natural light to really make his black clothes stand out, so I did the best I could with curves. I probably should have shot him with something...

    In photoshop you can pull up a curves or levels adjustment and bring down the red and blue channel to see if that helps.

    The Dog Trainer--Run and Gun

    I'm still not digging the orange hair highlight. To me it makes no sense, the light from the sunset would not be strong enough to cause that much of a orange highlight (inverse square law), I think if you just toned it down a bit in editing it would blend much better.

    Toddler Photos C&C please

    #1. Could use a better crop, framing the girl on the right hand side so she has someplace to walk to #2. Typical toddler shot, try to think outside the box. #3. Again, framing. Putting her eyes on the left hand side and not shooting her whole head but instead shoot half the head and give...

    Plastic fantastic - need your advice - please

    use adjustments or curves to bring the levels where you want them, create a layer mask, invert it, then paint in the local corrections you want to fix. You can try changing the filter to something like soft light to get the details back, then just adjust opacity till you get it right. can also...
