    Been brainstorming, but nothing coming to mind....

    Need to get a few shots of five or six watches. Been brainstorming for ideas, and unable to think of anything creative. Don't want to simply line up the watches on a table and take a photo looking down on them. All watches will need to be in focus. Any ideas? Thanks

    Thoughts on this water photo?

    Considering using this photo, but concerned the sun reflection is too bright. If it is, is there anything that can be done as from what is understood, that bright of an area has lost data. Should I leave it as is, or try to reduce the bright reflection? Thanks for any input.

    Faces in focus?

    I don't shoot people much at all. Recently did a group photo of six or seven people lined up in a line facing the camera. Everyone was pretty much the same distance from the camera (six feet or so) and the people on the ends were less in focus than those in middle. What settings (Nikon) should...

    London photography?

    Planning to travel to London in late March. Have been there several times in past 10 years. Interested in getting some good shots. Have already done all of the usual tourist stops. Not really interested in those. Where in London can photographers get some good non-touristy shots? Thanks

    Color check needed for this photo please.

    Made this photo, and when viewed on the school's TV it is very very over saturated. Extremely bright reds and blues. Checked the photo on a few Android and Iphones and photo looked good. Don't have many monitors to check the photo. How does photo look color-wise? Is it over saturated? Any...

    Best all around quality lens?

    Getting ready to go on a trip in a couple months. Would like to be able to take less camera equipment on the trip. Currently always taking 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8, and 50mm 1.4. What quality lens can be bought that would be a good compromise as compared to taking all of these lenses?

    Which lens for Rome?

    I will be traveling to Rome on March 1st. I have quite a few lenses, but am not sure which to take. I would like to limit my lenses to two. I am thinking 14-24, and 24-70. Should I substitute one of these for a 70-200? I may take the 50mm 1.4 since it is such a small/light lens. I am hoping to...

    Photos always coming out too redish.

    My parents living room has pale yellow walls and kind of pinkish/red sofas. I am not crazy about the color scheme.... Anyways, every time I shoot in their living room my photos always come out overly red with somewhat heavy saturation. I have tried reducing the red/orange tones using lightroom...

    14-24mm f2.8 problem.

    All of the sudden my 14-24mm f2.8 is stuck at 14mm. I am unable to zoom in at all. It is like the zoom ring locked at 14mm. The lens still makes great photos, but I can only use it at 14mm. Any ideas?

    Lens Skirt XL on 14-24?

    Will the Lens Skirt XL fit on the Nikon 14-24? Does the Lens Skirt screw on to the end of the lens? If so, how does it attach to the 14-24 since there are no threads on this lens? Thanks

    Photos don't look right?

    When I edit/process photos at home I get them looking fairly real or correct in my opinion. When I go to work I notice that the same photos look very bright. How do we know which monitor or settings to work with? How do my photos look ovcrall? Too bright? Too saturated? About right...

    AF question.

    I often go out to eat with friends or family. Usually seems like there are six or seven of us. When I give the waiter/waitress my camera to do a quick photo of us at the table, it rarely comes out well. I think the main problem is that I am unsure of which AF mode and which AF points to use. I...
