    Dumb Question, I'm sure...

    Just picked up my first full frame! I snagged a D750 and have some questions that I haven't been able to track down over the past week of searching. How can I tell what lenses will work without switching into DX mode? From what I can gather, I should be able to turn off the "Auto DX" mode in...

    WTB: Ball Tripod Head

    Hey all, I'm happily using my Manfrotto pan/tilt head that I've had for a couple years now, but would like to pick up a ball head to try out. I've got a feeling that I'm going to like it and use it more, so I thought I'd ask around on here to see if anyone has an old one lying around you'd like...

    iMac for Sale - 2GB of RAM too slow for editing?

    I've found a 24" iMac for sale that I'm considering picking up just for editing and web usage. My primary concern is that it won't be fast enough to run Lightroom/Photoshop, etc. Can I get your professional opinion? Current specs: 24" iMac 2.8GHz | 2 GB RAM | 500GB HD RAM can be upgraded to...

    C&C - Fashion Shoot

    So, I do a monthly model shoot for a local resale boutique. They send out an email getting entries and choose from the responses for the "Model of the Month" that they then use for emails, social media, etc. I don't get paid much for these so I use them as a classroom for myself, trying out...

    Styled Shoot - Clouds Composite (C&C Please?)

    I've never professed to be a Photoshop guru... Just attempted my first sky replacement and could use some critique. I basically cropped out everything technically difficult to replace (trees were to the left of the building...) and am left with this. I don't hate it and am going to step away to...

    Tamron 70-200/2.8

    Quick question - I noticed last night that my lens (stated above) has some weird motor noise going on while autofocusing. It almost sounds like the motor is straining to focus at the extremes (meaning 200mm focal length with a very close subject). It still seems to focus quickly and with normal...

    Website/Brand Thoughts

    So, up to this year I have been focused on portraits and headshots more than weddings/engagement. As I move into the year and start pushing for more wedding opportunities, I want to ensure that I am not poorly representing myself in my marketing efforts. My question is - Should I remove...

    PP Style | Thoughts on This?

    Hi all, I've been stalking a wedding studio and really like their style of processing. Most weddings tend to be super "airy" and bright with little contrast/mood. This studio has a different approach and I really like it. I'm trying to nail down how they achieve their signature look. From what...

    Marketing - Split Branding/Marketing?

    So, I am slowly increasing marketing and building awareness and have a site for my "typical" stuff - portraits, headshots, etc. I'm having some increased interest in my services on a freelance/corporate basis and am wondering if it would be best for me to split my marketing and branding for the...

    Blogging - Something Different?

    Hey all! I'm still in that super newbie marketing phase and am always trying to come up with ways to market myself successfully. As such, I do some social media marketing and have a begun "beating the streets" with some postcards that I hand out to business that I think might potentially be...

    Composite | C&C!

    Another in my foray into composite photography. Just trying to get a better feel for the process and how to overcome hurdles...Anyway, I'd love to get some thoughts? This is just two images put together in a similar fashion to my earlier composite post, this is just in color so it's a bit more...

    Engagement Sessions | City & Park

    Here's a few of my most recent engagement session. These are some friends of mine so it was a blast and they ended up happy with the shots. Here are a few of my favorites. I'd love C&C/feedback. I'll be right back after putting my thick skin on... :) Thanks! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Thanks again!

    Slow Shutter + OCF = Blue (think smurf) face?

    So, I've noticed that when I slow my shutter speeds down significantly (15 seconds last night) and use a speedlite to "pop" some light at the end, I end up with blue skin on the subject. I don't have access to an example image at this point (on my work computer) but thought I'd put the question...

    Composite | Ryan in Gotham

    This was my first composite attempt. Pretty simple with just two images. I took the easy way out and converted everything to B&W but I like the way it turned out. It looks a a decent amount darker than at home so I'm probably going to need to go ahead and calibrate my monitor again. It's been a...

    Website Critique

    Hello, I'm slowly working toward a sideline gig and hopefully a career (I'm in no rush...) in photography and could use some website critique. I'm using Squarespace and just switched things up a bit to what I hope is a fresher, unique approach. So, let me know your thoughts from a potential...

    Newbie-ish Filter Question

    This seems to be a newbie question and, yes, I've searched for threads about filters on the site and done some "Googling" but haven't found a satisfactory response to my particular question. If there's one in existence that you know of, feel free to point me in that direction... Here's my...

    Tax Return $$ to Spend

    So, it's tax season and that means that I typically end up with some tax money to spend...I've talked myself into a few different things and then right back out again so I figured I'd post my quandry and get some feedback from the gang on TPF. Basically, I'm thinking that (at most) I'll have a...
