    New monitor..

    I received a Dell Ultrasharp monitor for Christmas, but not sure what settings to use. I am really not tech savvy, so I'm kind of clueless when setting stuff up. I'm not even sure what to google. Are settings different if you'll be editing pictures? Do I use Adobe RGB color profile? There a ton...

    Viewfinder dimming

    During my last photoshoot I noticed my viewfinder dimming and when I took a picture and my flash wouldn't go off. The next shot I noticed the viewfinder brighten up and the flash worked. I thought I was giving my flash enough time to recycle, but maybe not. I was using a Flashpoint 360. Could...

    Setting up my new Flashpoint 360

    I finally got a Flashpoint 360 and I'm trying to set it up. I added my Yongnuo 622, so I can utilize high speed sync, however the YN622 makes it too tall. It's not touching, but very, very close. I'm guessing the bulb will melt the plastic. Does everything look ok? Did I do something wrong, or...

I have put a lot of time and energy into this hobby and I've loved every minute of it. Still so much to learn.. I'm going to keep...

    How does her skin look?

    Let me just say, dealing with skin tones makes me want to quite photography..Seriously. Just when I think I'm starting to get the hang of it I get shot down. I don't think this looks bad, but someone told me it looks washed out. What exactly does that mean? I used a gray card for white balance...

    I currently have a Nikon SB700, 26" Rapid Box Octa and the Yungnuo YN622N trigger and receiver. I would like to add a new, more powerful light to my gear. This is a hobby for me, so I don't have a studio. Most of my shooting takes place outside. I would like something that that is portable and...

    Does his skin look ok?

    I got a new MacBook and I calibrated the monitor today. Does his skin color look ok? It looks a bit red to me. I used a color checker as well, but still trying to figure out if I'm using it right. Excuse my son's goofy look. This is what I get what I get when I ask to take a test picture...
