    Choose image size

    On Nikon cameras there is a setting that lets you extend any lens by choosing an image size of 1.3 of normal. The question is, does this setting lower the sharpness? Does it reduce the pixels on each image?

    Outdoor's on cloudy days

    I am usually out in the marsh with my camera gear looking for waterfowl. I find that on cloudy days, the pics just don't have any pop and even with some editing, they just don't look good to me. Is there something I am missing or should I just wait for those full sunny days? I use PS/LR and...

    As someone who doesn't get out with his camera's enough, I tend to stay away from rainy weather. What is everyone's take on shooting in wet weather? I know there are some good pics to be taken on these rainy days, but I am always scared of what will happen to my equipment.

    I was wondering how everyone handles storing their pics. Do you leave them in PS/LR?? I have a separate drive that I just replaced and I am used to storing all pics on that separate drive. Long ago I kept them on the actual PC and that just ate up to much storage space. I was just curious as...

    Run ins with land owners or the police
