    Fujifilm X-T1 or Fujifilm FinePix X100S (GOODBYE DSLR)

    I've sold off all my DSLR gear, and ditched it completely. For the longest time I've loved FujiFilm as far as when I was a kid. Today when taking film photography I still use there film rolls on my LOMO LC-A+ Russian lenses. I'm not getting paid; just a passion hobby. My opinion on DSLR was that...

    Busting out the Ray-bans

    I took this self-portrait with ease, nothing too serious at all. I usually never take pictures with my glasses on; and I needed to update my social media default picture :wink: I went for a B&W feel. To get that real honest profile picture feel I challenged myself not to use my photo/recording...

    Problem with Lens Correction in Lightroom to Photoshop RAW?

    Fantastic! I'll start doing lens correction before exporting into CS6! I guess my eyes are playing tricks on me, cos when I compared the Lightroom screen to the CS6 screen it seemed the lens correction was not applied onto export.

    Problem with Lens Correction in Lightroom to Photoshop RAW?

    The problem is when it exports into CS6, I don't think it applys the lens correction.

    Problem with Lens Correction in Lightroom to Photoshop RAW?

    I have Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6. I shot RAW with a 60D, and when ever I edit in lightroom I like to use the lens correction when using my Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS to fix the barrel distortion, and lightroom picks up the lens type within the RAW. On the other hand I apply the lens correction...

    x100 vs x100s

    I'm in the same predicament. I'm also coming from a 60D, and I need something portable, small, and takes good pictures. I'll primary be using the X100 or X100S for causal portraits, group pictures, goofy moments, and some candid shots. But is the premium worth it? I'll be taking this out 99% of...

    Best ChromaKey Software for Portraits?

    I'm experimenting with green screen photography, and was wondering what would be the best software for Chromakey work? I have Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop. I don't really like how Photoshop does it, and Lightroom does not have Chromakey feature. I'm looking for very fine perfect Chromakeying for...

    Does ISO effect Image sharpness?

    So really ISO does not directly effect sharpness (a sharp image is a sharp image), but increasing ISO in turns adds noise/grain (that may or may not be wanted) and filtering it may cause a image to soften? I've taken notes in the past which I'll just post below for ISO new comers ISO 100 -...

    Does ISO effect Image sharpness?

    I know sharpness has many factors such as lenses, sensor, resolution. I also know that A smaller ISO setting has less noise than a higher setting so a smaller ISO in theory gives apparent sharper images than a higher ISO value. Lets say if we were to narrow it down to a controlled environmental...

    Sunny 16 vs Lenses sharpest F-stop (Portrait)

    Next week I'm going on a photo-shoot on a sunny clear blue sky day, and I was wondering what rule I should lean on? I use a Canon 50mm Prime 1.4 lens, and I noticed that the sweet spots for sharp and blurry backgrounds is around F-stop 2.8 - 5.8. If I want to take a nice portrait with exposure...

    Recommendations for Light Bulbs?

    Thank you for the reply's! Well I usually don't like using lamps, so might as well just replace the one 45W 5500K. The other two bulbs have been used for max of two hours. I'll buy one of those Alzo Light bulbs; I'll take your word they seem promising.

    Recommendations for Light Bulbs?

    A couple days ago my friend, and I were packing up my lighting kit. It composes of three light stands with two umbrellas. Well a little accident happened, and he accidentally knocked down a light stand with a light bulb on it. I laughed, as its no big deal (really as long as nobody got hurt). I...

    First Self-Portrait in Black & White.

    How is my first Self-Portrait in Black & White? I was going for a high exposed 60's influenced feel of Self-Portrait. I used myself as the subject. Thank you for reading. Black And White by Afternoon Tea Time, on Flickr moved thread

    My First go at B&W Self-Portrait

    Thank you for your input! ;) well I didn't want a direct 60's type of picture, I wanted some modernized feel to it. For the lack of better words a sense of 60's influence. If I missed my goal too much, I guess it still makes a good B&W hahaha ;)

    Some recent people photos - thoughts on lighting and setup?

    Looks good. Pay attentive detail to the eyes. The eyes is literally the eye grabber; the door to the soul. Typically you want to aim for one catch light in both eyes near 2 or 11 o'clock. Reasons can be for a natural light look / person is alive look, and has been done even during the days of...

    My daughter - Easter Dress

    Adorable! I agree you should re-crop it! Also just some two cents for cropping her is a good guild-line (as photography is not set in stone) here is some appealing and not so crops P.S. Maybe crop more of that extra space above her head?

    2nd time shooting a girl (not guilty)

    #1 and #3 I find the most appealing to my eyes. #1 The eyebrows look too dark for a B&W #2 I don't really like the smoke thats getting blown out of her mouth, the smoke doesn't seem strong enough to be included (refer to #1 to get what I'm saying) Its all about character! The backwards hat...
