    2022 New Year Resolutions related to photography?

    Interesting. I guess large lenses may seem scary to some. I don't do much in the way of street photography but I do like my prime lenses when something of that sort arrises. A 35mm or 50mm lense are short, light, and not overly intrusive. For scheduled events I like my Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8...

    Studio Music

    The few sessions I did I brought a speaker and encouraged my subject to play some music they are comfortable with. If, on the rare occasion they don’t have something, then I play some music from my personal playlist. Hopefully in the theme of the shoot.

    Portfolio help?

    Multiple portfolios. Commercial/advertising is way different than portrait. Take the portfolio you need with you. Always lead with your best photo and end with your second-best photo. I am not sure that editorial and fashion are compatible with portrait work. I would have a different...

    I have thousands of photos unorganized and duplicated. Help on organizing please!

    We can only share our experiences. What the OP ultimately decides is strictly up to them. When I started, all my photos just dropped into a Pictures directory and a date-stamped subfolder like 20211129 -- I use CCYYmmdd format. Four years later I upgraded my camera and took a look at my mess...

    Is DIY BS?

    I will say that I bought a lot of my stuff. One may, however, make some pretty good DIY projects. I had my wife sew some plain white and plain black fabric to make me a backdrop for small objects. I've used a work light to illuminate a large space where my speedlight would not work well and...

    Enlarger for a Novice-Intermediate Photographer's Bathroom Darkroom

    You bring back some memories of when I used to develop some of my own stuff. It was rare for me to do enlargements but I routinely developed my one negatives and made contact sheets for evaluation. Usually someone with more experience made the prints but I did make a few. Good luck on your...

    D3300 upgrade

    Your camera is fine. If you want to chase gear, look at lens improvement. I like my old primes because they are smaller and lighter than the zooms. They allow me to move quickly.

    Nikon D3000 Astrophotography help needed

    There is no one setting. There is a lot that goes into night photography. Time of day, dusk provides more ambient light than the middle of the night. Localized light pollution if a factor. The subject such as taking pictures of the sun or the moon give off more light than a moonless night...

    I have thousands of photos unorganized and duplicated. Help on organizing please!

    I like SquarePeg's answer and I do something similar. I take a lot of family photos so they are sorted by person or family and then by date. Then I have Events like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Travel, and then by date. For the Travel category I include location such as state or city with date...

    why does my zoom lens sometimes get stuck and unable to zoom?

    The first question is: What lens is it? Find out and then do a little research on the lens itself. Share here and we can help you. Nikon has a lens that is known to be squeaky and sometimes gets stuck. I knew this when I bought it but did so anyway. Sometimes it gets stuck and I have to...

    Custom White Balance

    Only during post processing. I shoot unmodified to get the raw results. I then may apply one of Nikon's filters to get the image close to neutral as possible. If it needs more tweaking, then I will fine tune after applying the filter in post.

    Welcome to the forum. Yes, I do share some photos on social media but they tend to me family or something a specific group of people can relate to. In other words, not much, and of very limited scope. For the more artistic type images, I started sharing here in the Gallery section.
