Composition and working with a family dynamic are the two main points. Although wedding photography is similar, they are not the same since family photography usually involves more children and in a less formal setting.
I know that alot of the technical aspects are similar to other types of...
Anywhere between 125th to 160th of a second. (Fast paced dancing).
I have had no issues with these triggers so far. The reason why I went with them is because they have a 'fire all" option on the transmitter. The only other company that I know does that is elinchrome and my friend has had...
Here's the story:
I was shooting a wedding the other night and tried out a set of Phottix Strato radio transmitter/receivers for the first time. (first time at a wedding, I had used them plenty before in order to test whether or not they were reliable to use on a job.)
I had an SB900 on my...

I remember seeing a video of a guy who has a camera holstered to him by some sort of camera strap and a gun holstered to his hip. He shoots the gun then his camera then the gun then the camera again. (or something like that).
I can't find the video. Does anyone know where I can find this...
For Yongnuo flashes they list different Nikon DSLRS for different flashes. (i.e. They will have the same flash one for certain Nikon DSLR's and another flash (same model) for different ones.
But the reason why I want to know is because if you look here:
Phottix Strato 2.4 GHz Wire/Wireless 4 in...
I know that certain DSLR models have the same exact hot-shoe built into the camera. Although they are all very similar there can be differences (e.g. between the D90 and the D700).
Does anyone know which other camera's (if any) the D7000's hot-shoe is similar to? I could not figure out how...
I want to buy these: Phottix Strato 2.4 GHz Wire/Wireless 4 in 1 Trigger
The only online place I found to buy them is the site I just posted above and a site that ships from Malaysia (Phottix Strato 2.4Ghz Wired / Wireless Flash and Camera Triggerer Set (Transmitter + Receiver) (C6 for...
I'm in the market for a backup device.
I shoot weddings and I want to be able to backup my cards immediately after they are full. This seems to be the most cost effective way to do it.
The problem is that I can't find any reviews on it. Anyone have any experience with this product?
I have been looking to get a Lumedyne kit (used) and I can't find info on the older kits.
I was looking at the following two kits:
1) Lumedyne 400 Watt Sec Outfit 067Q Pack C1 Batt Charger - eBay (item 150466007006 end time Jul-20-10 12:14:47 PDT)
2) Lumedyne 400 Watt Sec Outfit 067 Pack...
I have been playing around with the new tethered capture feature in Lightroom 3 and I was wondering of the same thing exists for video?
I use a D90 and want to see the live video feed on my laptop, does anyone know if I can do such a thing and if so how?
I am looking for a well made strong umbrella that will hold up to a couple of bumps.
My intended use for it will be on a portable setup that an assistant will be carrying around (most likely a Lumedyne head on a light stand minus the legs of the stand). Mainly for wedding and event work...
I'm looking to get 2 or 3 backdrops for portrait work. Really it is for group shots at weddings and other events when the client wants a 'formal' background setup.
My question is where do you buy your backdrops from?
I do not want to spend alot and I do not need the highest quality materials...
Does anyone have experience with both of these lenses?
I have the 18-50 but I require a bit more reach which is the main reason why I would want the 17-70.
I understand the obvious differences b/w the 2 lenses (18-50 is a 2.8 throughout the range while the 17-70 isn't, and the 17-70 is an...
Do you know of any examples of triggers (brands/ models/ a specific setup) that can handle going up to 1/1000th and preferably above?
(Currently I'm working with an sb-900, sb-600, Vivitar 285hv and a bunch of cactus v4's)
