    Who here has used the Godox system?

    Need some advice. I'm thinking of selling my Nikon speedlights and going for the Godox system. So far I've heard good things about them, the only bad thing being the firmware acting kind of funny, but apparently they released new firmware this week. I'll be using these primarily for weddings...

    To all of the wedding professionals - I'm curious to see where your putting your marketing and advertising funds towards. Last year I decided to try Wedding Wire, at $90/month the price wasn't terrible, but then again it didn't work for me. I've heard of some photographers doing very well on...

    Full-range FX lens reccomendations?

    I'm looking for a backup lens for my Nikon full-frame cameras in the case of a malfunction or I drop a lens and break it while on assignment (It's happened more than I'd like to admit).

    Issues adjusting capture time in Lightroom

    I'm trying to edit the capture time on my photos using Lightroom, but when I try to open the photos in another program the capture time still retains the original capture time. I've been able to successfully change the metadata before, but I'm wondering if I'm missing a step or something. Thanks.

    Which Nikon Macro Lens?

    I'm looking to finally add a new macro lens to my collection for close shots of wedding details (rings, flowers, table directions, etc) and I'm debating between Nikon's 40mm Macro and their older 60mm.
